Pediatrician 's  Response
hello there,
there is nothing to worry about in this case. prominent bronchovascular markings is a normal finding in medial 1/3rd of lung fields and so consider it a normal report and don't try to read between the lines.

this seems to be a case of viral respiratory infection and it should go by 1 week or so.

the only thing you have to take care is about some danger signs like, respiratory difficulty, intractable coughing, cyanosis, high grade fever not responding to regular antipyretics, excessive ittitability or lethargy.

so rest assured and follow the prescriptions of your pediatrician.

hope my advice helps you
wish speedy recovery of your daughter
