Accession:HP:0025178 term browser browse the term
Definition:Increase in thickness of the subpleural interstitium.
Comment:Subpleural interstitial thickening can be difficult to recognize where the lung contacts the chest wall or mediastinum but is easy to delineate adjacent to the major fissure. Thickening of the fissure visible on high-resolution computer tomography may represent subpleural interstitial thickening.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Subpleural scarring
