A 33-year-old male patient complaining of fever, sore throat, and cough (mild symptoms). Non-contrast axial chest CT (a, b) 2 days after onset of symptoms (early phase) revealed two patchy areas of consolidation seen at the right lung middle and lower lobes with air bronchogram and left-sided pleural effusion. With the persistence of the same symptoms (no respiratory distress), follow-up chest CT (cf) 7 days from the onset of symptoms revealed more extensive lesions in the form of multiple confluent patchy areas of ground-glass opacities, consolidation, and crazy-paving seen scattered at both lungs: central and peripheral in distribution and bilateral minimal pleural effusion
