Caceres’ Corner: Case No. 37 (Update: Solution)

Dear Friends,

Muppet is impressed with your knowledge. He tries very hard to post teaching cases and has decided to skip the multiple-choice questions in the following chest case, which is that of an asymptomatic 56-year-old male.

Questions in this case are:

1. Where is the lesion?

2. What is your diagnosis?

The first five radiologists to suggest the correct diagnosis will be given a DVD at the next European Congress of Radiology.
