Areas immediately next to the bronchial wall are known to have many nonspecific findings like fibrosis or chronic inflammation to be informative about the dominant disease in the lung parenchyma, and the pathologist should be careful not to overinterpret those areas. Needle Core Biopsies These are usually obtained during CT-guided biopsy of the lung in the evaluation of peripheral lung nodules that are less amenable to other modalities for sampling. In the course of the procedure, the radiologist uses a coaxial needle to target the lesion and fix the lung so the lesion does not move with respiration.

If that is the case, look for hyaline membrane, and then look for viral inclusions or acute pneumonia to discern the etiology of either bronchiolitis obliterans/organizing pneumonia or diffuse alveolar damage. 4. Granulomas are the next item, and they could be subtle and especially the poorly formed ones. The carrot-shaped nuclei with haphazard orientation in a thickened area should be a tip-off. Follow the algorithm for our radiologic correlation chapter as to what the type of lesion is. It is important to recognize the difference between airspace lesions and nodular or diffuse processes.
