ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Left upper lobe collapse caused by an enlarging, obstructing small cell lung carcinoma.

History: 60-year-old woman presents with chest pain and shortness of breath.

Findings: • PA chest radiograph demonstrates left lung volume loss, silhouetting of the left cardiac border, and Luftsichel sign. • Lateral chest radiograph shows anterior displacement of the major fissure and elevation of the left mainstem bronchus. • CT of the chest reveals an obstructing mass and resultant LUL collapse.

Ddx: This combination of radiographic findings are consistent with LUL collapse and highly suspicious for an underlying endobronchial mass causing obstruction of the LUL bronchus.

Dxhow: Lung biopsy proven Small Cell Lung Cancer.

No MeSH data available.
