Mosaic attenuation is a non-specific finding, which may be seen in any of the following:

1. obstructive small airways disease such as bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, constrictive bronchiolitis

2. occlusive vascular disease such as chronic pulmonary embolism

or 3. parenchymal disease: high attenuation regions are abnormal and represent ground-glass opacity

there is not one condition which causes this

let me know if you have other questions.
