these are calcified lesions affecting both lower lobes of lungs. it cnt b silicosis, miliary t.b or varicella. occupation lung disease needs to be ruled out. hrct chest cn clarify the diagnosis. are there any crepts on auscultation. since history is acute, hypersensitivity pneumonitis shd be ruled out. sputum exam by induction cn be done. give a short course of wysolone

It's not Miliary/TB/Silicosis.Looks like post inhalation of metallic dust.H/O exposure to b bought.
