ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Post inflammatory cystic changes secondary to severe community acquired pneumonia.

History: 18 yo 6 weeks s/p acute episode of severe community acquired pneumonia treated with full course of antibiotics. Patient reported improved symptoms at time of study.

Findings: Residual pneumonic process. LUL w/ multiple cavitations. Homogenous mass 3.5cm x 4.0cm along mid left lateral chest wall. Single cavitation 4cm in diameter present in RUL. No pleural effusion. Normal heart size.

Ddx: Cystic vs. granulomatous lesions. Cystic: Blebs, Bullae, Congenital cystic lesions, Coccidomycosis, PCP, Hydadid, Traumatic Cysts. Cavitary: Neoplastic, Staph, GNR, Mycobacteria, Anerobes, Coccy, Histo, PCP, Aspergillosis, Parasites, Immunologic, Emboli, PMF, Bronchiectasis, Congenital Lesions

Exam: Mild wheezes bilaterally in upper lung fields, otherwise unremarkable with normal respirator effort. Sputum, blood cultures were negative. TB testing negative x 2.
