Axial CT image shows multiple micronodules throughout both lungs. Some of the nodules are subpleural, and they are uniform in distribution.
Facts: Random Nodules
- Nodules are randomly, and evenly distributed relative to structures of the lung and lobule
- They tend to be symmetric
- Often involve pleural surfaces (with subpleural nodules)
- Common cause: hematogenous metastasis, miliary infection (TB, fungus)
Our case: hematogenous metastasis.
