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.


Thin slice CT with IV contrast in arterial phase demonstrates no abnormal vessels extending to the consolidation.  Bronchial walls are seen enhancing with contrast.  Lower density material most likely represents mucous and purulent material.
