The computed tomography appearances of six patients with pulmonary alveolar proteinosis are reported. In all patients the appearances are similar and are unlike pulmonary opacities in any other disease; in one patient they suggested the diagnosis. The CT appearances correlate well with histology and demonstrate septal thickening within lung involved by the disease.
