Caceres’ Corner Case 101 (Update: Solution)


Dear Friends,

Muppet is feeling very guilty about the difficulty of case 100. To regain your sympathy, he has selected an easy case: radiographs belong to a 53-year-old woman with moderate pain in the right hemithorax for the last six months. Where is the lesion?

1. Lung
2. Mediastinum
3. Pleura/chest wall
4. Can’t tell

Check the images below, leave your thoughts in the comments sectiona and come back on Friday for the answer.

      Due to an informatic snafu, wrong images were posted. Right ones are now on. Sorry

    4. Mohammed Atea Ahmed says:

      pleural based lesion due to obtuse angle with the anterior chest wall

    5. MOHAMMED H ABU AISH says:

      Most probably pleural lesion due to wide pripheral base and narrower medial apex

    6. Eola says:

      I would say pleural/chest wall based…though it looks too easy:)

      Pleura/chest wall- incomplete border sign

      Pleural/chest wall- incomplete border sign

    10. Mitu Eduard says:

      Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura- often forms an obtuse angle with the chest wall

    11. gus says:

      Could be Extrathoracic mass ?

    12. dreemer says:

      massive goitter

    13. El rayo says:

      Incomplete border sign (on the lateral view) with obtuse angles, so I would say pleura/chest wall

      ….in AP , sfumati appaiono i bordi….in LL l’angolo di raccordo con il polmone è ottuso….massa della parete, la cui natura è demandata alla TC….penso comunque ad un tumore fibroso della pleura….

    17. Jonathan says:

      Chest wall. Incomplete border sign on PA and question of R 1st and 2nd rib destruction. At the very least, not in the lungs.

      …complimenti “anche” ad Mitu e Genchi Bari, che hanno “anche” fatto la diagnosi di “natura”! Grandissimo professore !!!!!
