Resumo Diffuse panbronchiolitis (DPB) is a unusual form of bronchiolar disease that has been reported almost exclusively in Asians. We describe DPB in a non-Asian Brazilian citizen who has never traveled outside the country. the clinical, radiographic,; and histologic features of this case resemble those described in Japanese patients. the present case shows that DPB, although rare in Western countries, is not a disease restricted to Asia. It always should be considered in the differential diagnosis of nodular radiographic opacities associated with airflow limitation, especially in nonsmokers with a history of chronic sinusitis.
