      Mitral valve disease

    2. Dr.Mona Alkaphoury says:

      plain radiograph of the chest revealed:
      – increased cardiothoracic ratio with left ventricular configuration,showing mitralized left cardiac border, denoting left atrial enlargement.
      – prominent right cardiac border, consistent with right atrial enlargement
      – bilateral prominent central and basal bronchopulmonary vasculature with increased vessel number(plethora), mostly represent shunt vascularity..
      – clear lung shadow with no definite nodule or consolidative patches.

      picture could suggest underlying congenital heart disease, mostly shunt pathology for echocardiographic assessment

      Blurring of right heart border as well as horizontal posterior ribs and vertical anterior ribs.

      Pectus excavatum, evident by:

      – horizontal posterior and vertical
      anterior ribs (7 & inverted 7 shape)
      – displacement of Cardiac shadow
      towards the left

      Purmonary trunk seems enlanged, finding compatible with pecuts excavatum.
      Physical appearance information is warranted
