ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Left upper lobe pneumothorax

History: Pt is a 19 yo man in his state of otherwise excellent health until he noted the acute onset of a sharp stabbing sensation in his left chest while he was welding. The pt had been experiencing some bilateral chest pain which was associated with lifting weights. He noted that the acute pain was significantly different than that associated with his weight lifting. The pt continued to weld and then went on a five mile road march that afternoon. During the march the pt continued to note pain upon deep inspiration.

Findings: Left pneumothorax (Upper Chest)

Dxhow: Plain radiographs

Exam: The pt reports no fever, cough, SOB, or hemoptysis. The pts social history is significant for a smoking 1/2 PPD for the past 5 years.

No MeSH data available.


NOTE:  There are no vessels in the periphery of the Left upper chest.  A faint visceral pleural line is seen - the edge of the inflated upper lobe.
