ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Tension Pneumothorax

History: Shortness of breath recently.

Findings: Single frontal view of the chest shows large left pneumothorax resulting in deviation of the trachea and mediastinum to the right.

Ddx: Tension pneumothorax Non-tension pneumothorax In considering etiologies for pneumothorax, include Spontaneous/idiopathic Traumatic, including barotrauma Underlying malignancy Infection, such as TB Ruptured bulla Catamenial (due to endometriosis involving the thoracic cavity) Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM)

Dxhow: Portable chest film, pleural decompression and chest tube placement resolved condition.

Exam: Decreased breath sounds on auscultation of the left lung.

No MeSH data available.


PA and lateral views of the chest show no evidence of pneumothorax.  Linear opacities are present in the left lower lobe which represent atelectasis.  An opacification is also seen in the right lower lobe which again  probably represents atelectasis.  Bony thorax and visualized soft tissues are unremarkable.  Cardiac silhouette is normal.
