Caceres’ Corner Case 134 (Update: Solution)

ESR_2016_Blog-CaceresCorner-134

Dear Friends,

April is the cruelest month. Dr. Pepe has eloped with Miss Piggy and has not prepared any Diploma cases. To cover for him I have selected five cases to be shown during April. Paraphrasing the title of a film by Jack Nicholson, I am calling them “Five easy pieces”. All of them show subtle findings, easily seen if you look carefully.

The first case is a PA radiograph of a 53-year-old woman, preo-op for bariatric surgery. Check the image below, leave me your thoughts in the comments section, and come back on Friday for the answer.
