    Notes: Abstract. The aim of this study was to describe the imaging features of pulmonary mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. The chest radiographs (n = 18) and CT scans (n = 17) of 24 patients (18 men and 6 women) aged 27–78 years (mean = 56 years), with a known diagnosis of pulmonary MALT lymphoma, were retrospectively reviewed by two radiologists and the imaging findings are described. Six of the 24 patients had a history of an autoimmune disorder and 1 patient had acquired immune deficiency syndrome. Multiple pulmonary lesions were identified in 19 of 24 patients (79 %) and solitary lesions in 4 of 24 patients (17 %). Diffuse pulmonary infiltration was present in 1 patient. Lesions included masses or mass-like areas of consolidation (n = 21) and pulmonary nodules (n = 18). Associated findings were air bronchograms, airway dilatation, a positive angiogram sign and a halo of ground-glass shadowing at lesion margins. Peribronchovascular thickening was also observed, as were hilar or mediastinal lymph node enlargement and pleural effusions or thickening. Although rare, the diagnosis of pulmonary MALT lymphoma should be considered in patients with the imaging features described, particularly when in association with an indolent clinical course or a history of autoimmune disease.
