Lung ultrasound images in a patient with bronchiolitis complicated by pneumonia. a Transversal intercostals approach showed multiple B lines, consistent with bronchiolitis. b Longitudinal thoracic scan, revealed irregular pleural surface and confluent B lines (arrow). c The left posterior lung field showed a small subpleural consolidation without sonographic air bronchograms (arrow) - a typical finding in infants with bronchiolitis – associated with focally confluent B lines arising from the margin of the consolidation. d The scan of the posterior region of the right lung revealed a consolidation with hyperechoic air bronchograms suggestive of pneumonia
