    What's your diagnosis?

    Hint: this patient has no symptoms. This X-ray shows a previous illness.

    I'll post the correct answer in about three days!

    Correct answer:

    Post-chickenpox pneumonia.

    There are small, very dense granulomata (they’re so dense because of calcification) visible that fit past chickenpox really well. There are no symptoms at all. The diagnosis is (more or less) confirmed when the serial X-rays don’t change over months (and when there’s a past history of chickenpox, obviously).
