Inflammation of lung: Pneumonitis is a term used for inflammation of lungs (mostly due to infections). If it involves the lower zones of the lungs on both left and right lung, then it would be reported as bilateral basal pneumonitis. This is just a description of the extent of lung involvement, and there could be several causes for this pattern. Talk to your doctor regarding your specific situation.
