ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Pulmonary valve stenosis

History: 21 y.o. asymptomatic man with an incidental finding on a screening chest radiograph

Findings: Chest radiograph findings: - Left mediastinal mass, a prominent pulmonary artery Cardiac gated CT (with and without contrast) findings: - Enlarged main pulmonary artery measuring 4.4cm - Enlarged left pulmonary artery measuring 3.9cm - Normal right pulmonary artery measuring 2.2 cm - Pulmonary valve stenosis without subpulmonic membrane. Pulmonary valve is diffusely thickened. There is incomplete coaptation of the valve in diastole with a regurgitant area of 0.16 cm2. - Enlarged inferior vena cava

Ddx: • Pulmonary valve stenosis • Chronic pulmonary hypertension • Pulmonary artery aneurysm • Idiopathic pulmonary artery dilation

Dxhow: CT Measurement of Pulmonic valve

Exam: IV/VI holosystolic murmur heard best at the right upper-sternal border

No MeSH data available.
