Affiliation: Uniformed Services University

ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Bronchiectasis

History: 15 year old boy, air evacuated from Japan with a history of recurrent productive cough.

Findings: • Chest radiograph demonstrates opacity in LLL. Thin slice CT with IV contrast in arterial phase demonstrates no abnormal vessels extending to this consolidation to indicate that this may be a sequestration. • A repeat chest radiograph and a CT after 10 day antibiotic therapy demonstrates partial resolution of retrocardiac opacity. CT shows segmental bronchiectasis most likely resulting from numerous prior infections.

Ddx: • Bronchiectasis • CCAM (this case demonstrates dilated bronchi and not cysts as in CCAM) • Pulmonary Sequestration - (no abnormal blood supply in this case)

Dxhow: Response to treatment (no pathology) and Imaging characteristics

Exam: NA

No MeSH data available.


Opacity in retrocardiac region, probably consolidative.
