ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Pulmonary Hamartoma

History: 40 year old male presents for screening chest radiograph for an over 40 physical examination.

Findings: PA chest radiograph demonstrate a well circumscribed opacity within the LUL. The lateral view demonstrates a well circumscribed opacity within the LUL, obscuring the trachea. Axial contrast enhanced CT demonstrates a well circumscribed nodule in the LUL, with a lobulated border, and multiple clumps of calcium or ‘popcorn’ calcifications, as well as discrete areas of fat dispersed throughout the lesion.

Ddx: Differential Diagnosis for a Solitary Pulmonary Nodule or Mass: Neoplasm: Bronchogenic carcinoma Hamartoma Bronchial adenoma Granular Cell myoblastoma Mesenchymal neoplasms Leiomyoma/Leiomyosarcoma Fibroma Neurofibroma Lipoma Lymphoma Solitary metastasis Colon carcinoma Infection: Septic embolus Staphylococcus Round pneumonia Pneumococcus Legionella Nocardia Fungi Lung Abscess Infectious granuloma Tuberculosis Histoplasmosis Coccidiomycosis Cryptoccoccosis Parasitic Echinococcal Cyst Amebic Abscess Collagen Vascular Disease: Necrobiotic Nodule (rheumatoid lung) Wegener’s granulomatosis Vascular: Infarct AVM Pulmonary Artery Aneurysm Hematoma Airways: Congenital foregut malformations Bronchogenic cyst Sequestration Mucocele Infected Bulla Miscellaneous: Amyloidoma Round Atelectasis

Dxhow: Characteristic imaging appearance

Exam: Within Normal Limits
