ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Hydropneumothorax

History: The patient is post operative day 15 from a coronary artery bypass operation. He was discharged from inpatient care 3 days ago. The patient is currently asymptomatic.

Findings: Chest AP and Lateral radiograph show a left sided hydropneumothorax. Additionally, a left sided pulmonary nodule is noted toward the apex of the lung and metallic objects consistent with recent surgery overlying the mediastinum. Compare this case with the following case showing a meniscus: http://rad.usuhs.edu/medpix/tf_case.html?mode=pt&pt_id=4063&quiz=yes#top

Ddx: • Iatrogenic • Trauma • Esophogeal Rupture (Boerhave Disease) • Fistula (i.e. colopleural, bronchopleural) • Infection (parasites and TB) • Tumor (primary or metastatic) • Spontaneous • Pseudo-hydropneumothorax (i.e. Hiatal hernia)

No MeSH data available.


This is a model of a hydropneumothorax.  The space between the chest wall (the glass) and the lung (the balloon) is occupied by both air and fluid.  The air fluid interface forms a horizontal edge.
