ABSTRACT

A 60-year-old male, a known smoker with a history of tuberculosis treated in the past, presented with right-sided chest pain. On clinical examination, the patient was found to be moderately built with decreased air entry in the right lung on auscultation. A radiograph of the chest revealed an ill-defined opacity in the right middle zone [Figure 1a]; hence, considering the patient's clinical details, contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) was done. Contrast-enhanced CT and high-resolution CT (HRCT) revealed marked pleural thickening and calcification in the region of the right middle lobe with an associated subpleural nodular mass in the right middle lobe suggestive of collapsed lung [Figure 1b]. The bronchovascular bundles were seen converging toward the nodular mass [Figure 1c], with multiple linear bands radiating from the mass in the adjacent lung [Figure 1d].
