The clavicles are normal in appearance. • No pleural effusions are seen. • There is no evidence of pneumothorax. • The cardiomediastinal silhouette is normal and the remainder of the bones and the soft tissues are unremarkable. • No other abnormalities are identified.

Ddx: • Pneumothroax • Abscence of right pectoralis major (surgical or congenital) • Adenomatoid malformation • Bronchogenic cyst • Hygroma • Foreign body aspiration with air trapping

Dxhow: Diagnosis was confirmed by exam, imaging, and patient history.

Exam: • Atrophic right chest appearance. • Palpable right ribs, absence of pectoralis major on right. • No associated upper extremity abnormalities.
