ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Mucus Plug

History: 26 y/o man with traumatic brain injury had oxygen saturation decrease to mid 80’s which would not correct with O2 by face mask.

Findings: There is a large loculated mucous plug within the right main stem bronchus, from the level of the carinaand extending into the bronchus intermedius and its branching airways within the right lower lobe to affect mostly the basal segment of the right lower lobe. There is consolidation in the medial basal and posterior basal segments of the right lower lobe with associated pleural fluid collection.

Ddx: foreign body, mucus plug, infection [fungus, TB, pneumonia], bronchogenic carcinoma, carcinoid tumor, adenocystic carcinoma, endobronchial metastases, lymphoma.

Dxhow: Radiologic and by aspiration

Exam: Pt. with tachypnea and increased respirations.

No MeSH data available.

There is consolidation in the medial basal and posterior basal segments of the right lower lobe with associated pleural fluid collection.  There is mild dependent atelectasis of the left lower lobe posterior segment.
