Depends: Depends on other health issues going on. Chest xrays w/ prominent interstitial markings include a large variety of abnormal processes such as inflammation, edema, lung disease and environmental exposure. A viral infection could certainly explain your xray, however, if your respiratory condition persists, i would follow-up with a physician.
