Abstract

Abstract Some uncommon diseases may involve the central airways focally or diffusely. These include Wegener’s granulomatosis, relapsing polychondritis, tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica, amyloidosis, papillomatosis, rhinoscleroma, sarcoidosis and tuberculosis. Related computed tomography (CT) findings essentially include calcifications, luminal stenosis, wall thickening and nodules. The purpose of this paper is to help refine the differential diagnosis among these diseases through the use of multidetector CT (MDCT) imaging. Key words Trachea • Bronchi • CT • Stenosis
