Caceres’ Corner Case 88 (Update: Solution)

ESR_2012_Blog-CaceresCorner-590-CASE88_2

Dear Friends,

Muppet considers himself a celebrity and, like everybody else, he wants to show you a selfie. Today’s case is provided by my good friend Dr. Fernandez Alarza. Radiographs belong to a 33-year-old woman with moderate dyspnoea. I showed it to Muppet and since he is the smartest guy in the Universe, he made the right diagnosis up to the last finding.

Can you guess Muppet’s diagnosis? What do you see?

Dear Friends,

Our next case is that of a 60-year-old male with intermittent chest pain for the last year. If it is of any help, Muppet made the wrong diagnosis in this case. His mind was probably still in Mexico.

What do you see? What would be your diagnosis? Check the images below, leave your thoughts in the comments section, and come back on Friday for the answer.

Caceres’ Corner Case 83 (Update: Solution)

ESR_2012_Blog-CaceresCorner-590-CASE83

Dear Friends,

Since I am an old codger, I am only allowed to look at pre-op chest films. As one young member of staff told me: you may be better than us, but we are faster because we read all of them as normal!

Today I am showing two pre-op chests. Would you read them as normal? If not, what do you see? Leave your comments below and come back for the answer on Friday.
