Diffuse cystic lung disease represents a diverse group of uncommon disorders that has been increasingly diagnosed due to the increasing use of computed tomography. It poses a frequent diagnostic challenge to radiologists due to the similar clinical and radiological features these diseases share. This pictorial review includes selected cases from the Hospital Authority New Territories West Cluster (NTWC) in Hong Kong from the past 3 years. It will illustrate the spectrum of diffuse cystic lung diseases, including some rarer entities in our locality, and identify the pertinent differentiating imaging features on CT. A flowchart to summarize these features is provided at the end to aid in diagnosis.
