Honeycombing – a common and distinctive CT finding in pulmonary fibrosis (usual interstitial pneumonia). It refers to clustered cystic air spaces between 0.3 to 1.0 cm in diameter typically in a subpleural basal distribution. The walls of the cysts are usually well-defined and thick. Honeycombing is an irreversible finding in interstitial lung disease and associated with a poor prognosis.
