Objective: To explore the application and diagnostic value of high-resolution CT in the
process of lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia clinical diagnosis, and analyze one case of CT-guided
percutaneous lung biopsy lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia.
Methods: The medical record of a patient with lymphocyte interstitial pneumonia (LIP) who came to
the clinic on 2014-04-22 were analyzed and summarized retrospectively.
Results: The patient was a 55 years old female farmer. The CT-guided percutaneous lung biopsy was
performed at her first visit; on 2014-07-09, the patient returned to our outpatient clinic with the main
complaint of "1 week of coughing and blood in sputum and phlegm". Pathology consultation report
from the PLA General Hospital on 2014-07-29 showed: (right lower lung) pneumonic pseudo-tumor;
Zhejiang First Hospital’s pathology consultation report on 2014-08-11 showed: lymphocyte
Conclusion: The diagnosis of lymphocyte interstitial pneumonia (LIP) with high-resolution CT may
be used to increase its clinical diagnosis rate, reduce misdiagnosis and improve early detection.
