22 Honeycombing: significance a very important finding in practicefibrosis is presentUIP is likely the histologic patternin the absence of a known disease, IPF very likelylung biopsy is uncommonly performed if significant honeycombing is visible
36 Traction Bronchiectasis bronchiectasis resulting from fibrosiscorkscrew appearancemucous plugging absentbronchioles may be involvedassociated with other findings of fibrosis (e.g. reticulation or honeycombing).
41 Traction Bronchiectasis: significance fibrosis is very likely presentuseful in diagnosis when a reticular abnormality is unassociated with honeycombingUIP and IPF are common causesother causes of fibrosis (i.e. sarcoidosis, HP, NSIP) are more likely than when honeycombing presentbiopsy often indicated unless the patient has a C-V disease
