perihilar markings

My 20 yr old daughter just came back from a follow up visit to her GP.  The result of swollen lymp nodes under her arms, which have now disappeared.  She had an x-ray taken of the chest PA/AP and lateral, which she was told found perihilar markings on the lungs.  It was also found on the x-ray that she has minimal curvature of the upper thoracic spine to the right, with posterior dysraphism at the T1 level.
Do know if these two findings are related?  What does perihilar markings mean?  Shadows on the lungs?  The DR did not seemed to be concerned about the markings, but refered her to a spinal specialist.
