Dr. Pepe’s Diploma Casebook: Case 96 – A painless approach to interpretation (Chapter 3) – SOLVED!

diploma_casebook_case96

Dear Friends,

I hope you remember the three questions to ask when facing a chest radiograph:

a) Is there any visible abnormality? (Chapter 1)
b) Is it intra or extrapulmonary? (Chapter 2)
c) What does it look like?

To discuss the third question, I’m showing chest radiographs of a 36-year-old woman with chest pain.

What does the lesion look like?

1. Pericardial fat pad
2. Thymic tumour
3. Pericardial cyst
4. Any of the above

Check the two images below, leave your thoughts in the comments section and come back on Friday for the solution.

Dear Friends,

Welcome back! To start the academic year I would like to show a case seen by Dr. Pepe while I was vacationing in Minorca.

Radiographs belong to a 35-year-old woman with pain in the mandible for the last two years. CT of the mandible before biopsy and pre-op PA chest radiograph are shown. After seeing both, Dr Pepe suggested a diagnosis. What do you think?
