ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Poland Syndrome

History: 18-year-old gentleman with asymmetry of the chest from a known congenital absence of the right pectoralis major muscle

Findings: • Suggestion of an increased lucency over the right mid to lower lung region consistent with the patient's given history of absence of the pectoralis major muscle. • Lungs are clear and evenly aerated without evidence of focal consolidations or masses. • The ribs are normal in appearance and number. 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.

No MeSH data available.


Subtle lucency noted on PA plain film. In this image the anterior thorax mid to lower lung region shows a very subtle lucency which is correlated with PA view, this is consistent with the patient's history of Poland syndrome. No other abnormalities identified.
