ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: 1. Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava (PLSVC) 2. Cervical Aortic Arch

History: 17 year-old girl with Turner's syndrome presented to pediatrician complaining of a one-week history of fever and malaise. No localizing physical findings were noted and a chest radiograph was obtained as part of the fever work-up.

Findings: • Chest Radiography: demonstrates a smooth paraspinal mass overlying and projecting above the aortic knob, which itself overlies the left clavicular head. • MRI: demonstrates a cervical aortic arch and a persistent left superior vena cava

Ddx: Differential: 1. Persistent left SVC 2. Anomalous pulmonary venous return 3. Mediastinal adenopathy

Dxhow: On imaging

No MeSH data available.


The frontal radiograph of the chest demonstrates a left paraspinal mass, with smooth contours, overlying what is believed to be the aortic knob.  The finding prompted further evaluation with MRI.
