pulmonary parenchyma with discrete multifocal interstitial infiltrates
Explanation:
I am more familiar with the term 'ulmonary parenchyma', though 'lung parenchyma' is also correct.

There are a couple of points that seem confusing:
1. Absence of a preposition, which is required in order for it to make sense.
2. The need to combine 'discreto' and 'difuso'. I'm suggesting 'multifocal' instead of 'diffuse'.

Examples:

agree  Joseph Tein: Hi Muriel. I agree with this nice phrasing, but would change "discrete" to "moderate" ... this is how I always translate it.

agree  Emma Goldsmith: with Liz

  -> Thanks, Emma. I agree with the suggestion.

agree  Otto Albers: "discreto" relates to the radiological intensity of the image, and "difuso" to the organic location of the finding, how much does it spread over the lung.

  -> Thanks, Otto.

agree  fvasconcellos: Absolutely! I'd use "minor" or "mild" instead of "discrete" just to avoid any implication of "noncontinuous".
