Abstract

Pulmonary edema is a common condition with numerous causes, some of which are infrequently encountered. This review article describes various uncommon conditions/disease that are associated with pulmonary edema and which show characteristic imaging findings on chest computed tomography or other imaging modality. Thus, this review reflects the variety of factors involved in this frequently encountered condition. We demonstrate the wide range of situations that lead to the development of pulmonary edema by showing the imaging findings of unique cases. These rare varieties of pulmonary edema have distinctive imaging and clinical features that aid in providing an accurate diagnosis.
