Follow-up to Pulmonary Nodules

This is the 51 y/o woman with COPD and pulmonary nodules.
We had the same concerns and DDx as proposed in the discussion. I did a bronchoscopy and we got good samples consistent with RB-ILD.
She was counselled again regarding TOB cessation and agreed to try varenicline. She will follow-up in a few weeks and we will monitor her CxR and PFTs.

I'm always a bit hesitant to call RB-ILD based on transbronchial biopsies.
