This 61-years old man came after 4 days of fever. The first CT scan shows a classic perivascular and subpleural lesion. 7 days later, the lesion has partly “melted” – this has been called the “tinted” sign in some recent papers.

More and more, we now believe that this is fluid getting partly absorbed as part of the changes that occur due to the local angiopathy / vasculopathy and that this is not really “pneumonia”.
