Abstract:
Pleural lesions proved to have a negative effect on lung function, depending on their extent. The effect of the initial parenchymal fibrosis detectable in the HRCT scans only was also significant. A normal chest radiograph does not exclude the presence of pleural lesions or initial parenchymal fibrosis, with a possible negative effect on lung function.
