In 20 patients with chronic form of hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) pulmonaryfunction tests (FEV(1), FVC, DCO) and high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scans were obtained.Extent of pathological changes, i.e. nodularity, lines, honeycombing but not ground-glass estimated byHRCT and expressed as a score correlated significantly with lung function abnormalities.
