ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Azygos lobe

History: 20yo Man s/p MVA

Findings: The mediastinum appears widened without evidence of rib fractures nor an apical cap. On a subsequent non-contrast CT of the chest there is an incidental azygous fissure and associated vein which cause the apparent mediastinal widening on plain radiography. No aortic transection or pseudoanyeursm is evident.

Ddx: A diffential diagnosis for mediastinal widening would include rupture of the aorta and/or brachicephalic arteries/veins, aortic anyeursm/pseudoanyeursm, prominence of the SVC, rupture of the esophagus or thoracic duct, adenopathy, bronchogenic duplication cyst, tumor/inflamation, or prominence of the azygous vein.

Exam: Currently hemodynamically stable with no direct chest trauma evident.

No MeSH data available.


Non-contrast CT through the area of mediastinal widening demonstrates an azygos lobe with invagination of the pleura, creating an azygous fissure.
