Abstract

Typical radiologic images of Covid-19 pneumonia consists in a wide spectrum of chest manifestations, which range from peripheral predominant ground-glass opacities to an organizing pneumonia pattern, with additional features including crazy-paving, consolidations, fibrotic streaks and linear opacities. With variants imaging profile of Covid-19 evolves, producing relatively atypical/indeterminate CT pattern of pulmonary involvement, which overlap with imaging features of a variety of other respiratory diseases, including infections, drug reaction and hypersensitivity pneumonia. Our knowledge of these radiological findings is incomplete and there is a need to strengthen the recognition of the many faces of Covid-19 pneumonia.
