In patients with AIDS-related Pneumocystis carinii infection occurring during aerosolized pentamidine prophylaxis, roentgenographic findings may be atypical. Pulmonary parenchymal calcification due to P carinii is rare. In this case, extensive upper lobe pulmonary parenchymal, splenic, and nodal calcifications occurred after two years of monthly treatments with aerosolized pentamidine.
