Overview

Thoracic CT scan may be helpful in the diagnosis of adult T-cell leukemia. Findings on CT scan suggestive of pulmonary infiltration by adult T-cell leukemia cells include thickening of the bronchovascular bundles, consolidation in the peripheral lung parenchyma, and ground-glass attenuations. Findings on abdominal CT scan suggestive of adult T-cell leukemia cells include hepatomegaly and splenomegaly.

CT Scan

  • Thoracic CT scan may be helpful in the diagnosis of adult T-cell leukemia.[1]
  • Findings on CT scan suggestive of pulmonary infiltration by adult T-cell leukemia cells include:
  • Ground-glass attenuations
  • Centrilobular nodules
  • Thickening of the bronchovascular bundles
  • Consolidation in the peripheral lung parenchyma
