ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Round atelectasis

History: 46 year old male presents with a cough.

Findings: AP and lateral chest radiographs demonstrate an opacity within the right lower lobe at the posterior costophrenic angle that appears somewhat mass-like and a chest CT was recommended. Axial chest CT images following intravenous contrast administration (in both soft tissue and lung windows) demonstrate a focal area of pleural thickening with moderate sized adjacent linear parenchymal opacification and a drawing in of the bronchovascular bundles toward to pleural thickening in a comet tail pattern. There is also some associated volume loss within the right lower lobe.

Ddx: Round atelectasis Neoplasm

Dxhow: The patient had a prior chest CT from four years earlier that demonstrated no significant change in the appearance of the lesion.

Exam: n/a

No MeSH data available.
