Lung contusion usually follows blunt trauma to the chest. If not properly diagnosed and adequately treated, it could at times be fatal as well. This case is being presented to highlight the radiological findings of this condition.

The egg and banana sign can be seen on chest computed tomography (CT) in patients with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). It is identified by the presence of the pulmonary artery (PA) lateral to the aortic arch with the aortic arch being described as the banana and the PA as the egg.

Cryptococcosis is a menacing opportunistic infection most commonly affecting immunocompromised individuals. Its occurrence in immunocompetant individuals is uncustomary. Disseminated cryptococcosis is subtile in immunocompetent individuals. Cryptococcosis presenting with myriad of symptoms with involvement of lung, meninges, hematological system is rare. We present to you a unique case of disseminated cryptococcosis presenting as bilateral pulmonary nodular opacities with peripheral eosinophilia and meningitis along with a narration of the enthralling diagnostic process...

A 43-year-old female with a medical history of renal stones, hypertension, diabetes mellitus Type 2, and depression presented to her urologist with bilateral flank pain. She complained of worsening exertional dyspnea over the last several months with recent weight gain. She also endorsed night sweats and intermittent, scant hemoptysis over the past year. She denied fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, hematuria, or excessive joint or muscle pain. Physical examination was unremarkable. Computed tomography scan of abdomen and pelvis demonstrated bilateral nonobstructing renal stones and a 1...

Ectopic thyroid tissue is very rare, but its prevalence increases in those with thyroid pathology. It typically occurs due to aberrant development of the thyroid gland during its migration to the pretracheal region. In this report, there are two cases of mediastinal ectopic thyroid tissue discussed, which were initially considered to be malignancies. The hospital course, diagnostic workup, including the use of computed tomography and positron emission tomography scans, and the characteristic features of the tissue are examined here...

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal tumor and several paraneoplastic syndromes have been related to it. We report the case of a 60-year-old male initially admitted to rule out cerebral vascular accident with the final diagnosis of SFT associated with paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration and hypoglycemia. The diagnosis was confirmed by computed tomography-guided lung biopsy.

Ajmal Khan, Alok Nath, Hira Lal, Narendra Krishnani, Aarti Agarwal
In the modern era, real-time imaging-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) has completely replaced the traditional surgical approaches to sample the mediastinal lesions for diagnosis and cancer staging. However, there is a limited role of these innovations in the presence of critical airway narrowing due to a further decrease in cross-sectional area of the airway proportionate to the outer diameters of the scope. Rigid TBNA with airway control by rigid bronchoscopy is one alternative which can be used for mediastinal sampling when modern technique is impracticable...

Pasteurella multocida infection is most commonly associated with the immunocompromised, mostly in the form of soft-tissue infection, although other sites of infection are still possible and have been reported in the immunocompetent. We report a case of an immunocompetent male with a history of exposure to carrier organisms without portal of entry who developed P. multocida pneumonia with bacteremia. We undertook a focused review of literature of previously reported cases of P. multocida pneumonia in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease...

Diffuse parenchymal lung diseases (DPLDs) encompass a variety of restrictive and obstructive lung pathologies. In this article, the authors discuss a series of rare pulmonary entities and their high-resolution computed tomography imaging appearances, which can mimic more commonly encountered patterns of DPLDs. These cases highlight the importance of surgical lung biopsies in patients with imaging findings that do not show typical imaging features of usual interstitial pneumonia.

REVIEW
Victoria K Tang, Praveen Vijhani, Sujith V Cherian, Manju Ambelil, Rosa M Estrada-Y-Martin
Pulmonary lymphoproliferative neoplasms are rare lung tumors and account for <1% of all lung tumors. Among them, primary pulmonary lymphomas (PPL) constitute the majority, which include Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) that comprise of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphomas and other rare types of NHL and lymphomatoid granulomatosis. HL, which arises secondary to contiguous spread from the mediastinum, is the rarest type of PPL. Other entities described within the umbrella of pulmonary lymphoproliferative neoplasms include pleural lymphomas and posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD) - which occurs in the poststem cell and organ transplant patients...

Background: Chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) is the most common cause of diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD) in India. There is no data regarding the avian antigen exposure-associated DPLD from the country. Methods: Chronic HP from exposure to avian antigen was diagnosed when the high resolution computerized tomography (HRCT) showed features for HP and was supported by the history of exposure to pigeons, the presence of precipitin antibodies (IgG) to avian antigen in high titre with negative rheumatoid factor, antinuclear antibody, and no clinical clue for a collagen vascular disease...
