Minimally enlarged pretracheal ,paratracheal and precarnial nodes ranging upto 1 cm are seen. No evidence for any necrosis or calcification seen within them

Trachea and major bronchi are patent.

No evidence for any intraluminal obstructive or extraluminal compressive pathology.

Extensive ,cylindrical bronchiectatic changes are seen invovling entire right middle lobe, lingula and all segments of the left lower lobe except the superior segment.There are small well-defined ,centrilobular nodules with some of them showing tree-in-bud appearance within bilateral lower lobes, right middle lobe and the lingula, suggestive of bronchiolitis.Rest of the lung parenchyma is normal.
