Herpetic pneumonia in immune deficient patients could be fatal if not treated. Considering the low prevalence of this disease, computed tomography (CT) scan findings of this condition are not well elucidated. This report describes the CT scan findings of a patient with immune system deficiency due to mycosis fungoides, and pneumonia caused by herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1). Bilateral alveolar infiltration with crazy-paving pattern was observed on CT scan of the lungs. The scattered crazy-paving pattern noted in the CT scan of the lungs could be suggestive of herpetic pneumonia in immunocompromised patients presenting with lung infections.
