Caceres’ Corner: Case No.8 (Update: Solution)


Dear Friends,

Here is case number 8:

Sixty-three year old male admitted to the Emergency Room with possible pulmonary embolism. Chest radiographs show a bulge in the descending aorta. Enhanced CT from the apex of the lungs to the diaphragmatic domes confirms the embolism. A more caudal axial CT shows a rounded opacity surrounding the aorta.

Diagnosis:

1. Neurofibromatosis
2. Lymphoma
3. Cystic lymphangioma
4. None of the above

Muppet is very frustrated about the previous case. He thought you would all diagnose it easily and says that if you don’t get the new one, he will retire to a nunnery…
