Rajan Atwal, Charles Stewart
We describe the unique case of a child with pneumonia presenting with acute scoliosis and abdominal pain, without any typical features of the disease.A 10-year-old girl presented to the emergency department on 3 consecutive days with right-sided abdominal pain. There were no associated features, in particular, no fevers or respiratory symptoms. On the first 2 presentations, observation,examination, and blood test findings were unremarkable. Chest x-ray and abdominal ultrasound were also normal. On the third presentation a marked scoliosis was noted and abdominal examination revealed right-sided tenderness with rebound...

Lymphoedema-distichiasis is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder of the lymphatic system. Rarely, it is associated with fetal hydrops; the risk and severity of which increases with successive generations. The causative gene is a member of the forkhead transcription factor family ( FOXC2 ). We describe a fetus presenting with early-onset, rapidly progressing body wall oedema, bilateral pleural effusions and a pericardial effusion in a mother with known FOXC2 mutation. First trimester chorionic villus sampling confirmed FOXC2 mutation in the fetus when there was only a large nuchal translucency...

Background and Objectives: Clinical pathways are evidence based multidisciplinary team approaches to optimize patient care. Pleural diseases are common and accounted for 3.4 billion US $ in 2014 US inpatient aggregate charges (HCUPnet data). An institutional clinical pathway ("pleural pathway") was implemented in conjunction with a dedicated pleural service. Design, implementation, and outcomes of the pleural pathway (from August 1, 2014, to July 31, 2015) in comparison to a previous era (from August 1, 2013, to July 31, 2014) are described...

A 41-year-old man with a medical history of chronic back pain, seizure disorder, alcohol and tobacco abuse presented with acute shortness of breath. Chest X-ray showed a large right-sided pleural effusion. Pleural fluid analysis was significant for an elevated amylase level, suggestive of pleural effusion secondary to pancreatitis. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) revealed a persistent right-sided pleural effusion in connection with a right pararenal space fluid collection via a Bochdalek hernia...

AIM: To assess the role of lung size and abnormal Doppler findings in the umbilical artery (UA) in determining the outcomes of fetuses with primary fetal hydrothorax (FHT) associated with hydrops who underwent thoracoamniotic shunting (TAS). METHODS: This was a retrospective study at a single center. We included cases of primary FHT with hydrops who underwent TAS at our hospital between 2004 and 2016. We assessed the relationship between mortality until 28 days after birth and ultrasound findings, including absent or reversed end-diastolic velocity (AREDV) in the UA and the lung-to-thorax transverse area ratio (LTR), before and after TAS...

Minimally invasive sublobar anatomical resection is becoming more and more popular to manage early lung lesions. Robotic-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS) is unique in comparison with other minimally invasive techniques. Indeed, RATS is able to better integrate multiple streams of information including advanced imaging techniques, in an immersive experience at the level of the robotic console. Our aim was to describe three-dimensional (3D) imaging throughout the surgical procedure from preoperative planning to intraoperative assistance and complementary investigations such as radial endobronchial ultrasound (R-EBUS) and virtual bronchoscopy for pleural dye marking...

We report the case of a 41-year-old woman who presented with a unilateral exudative effusion with prominent eosinophils on pleural cytology. Carbimazole had been started 4 weeks prior to presentation. No immediate cause was identified on imaging or laboratory testing. The effusion persisted at 2-month follow-up. Further investigation at this time, including autoimmune serology was negative. At 2-month follow-up, the effusion was loculated on ultrasound imaging and had a low fluid pH on diagnostic aspiration, in keeping with an empyema...

Ultrasound is an easily accessible and cost-effective imaging method that is not associated with radiation exposure. Ultrasound-guided wire localization is a reliable method for resecting non-palpable breast lesions. Preoperative ultrasound-guided wire localization has the advantage of a shorter operative time, and the breast lesions may be accurately excised with less tissue injury. We herein report an unusual case of an ectopic breast localization wire in the pleural cavity in a 47-year-old female patient with a history of right-sided breast cancer, who received left segmental mastectomy due to a newly identified left-sided breast lesion...

BACKGROUND: Chest ultrasound (CUS) is the gold standard to detect pleural adhesions before pleural maneuvers. However, the CUS technique is not available in all countries where the assessment is only based on clinical examination and chest radiography. OBJECTIVE: To assess the value of lateral decubitus chest radiography (LDCR) to detect pleural adhesions. METHODS: Consecutive patients with pleural effusions undergoing LCDR followed by medical thoracoscopy the day after were identified from an institutional database...

BACKGROUND: Thoracic paravertebral block is a technique for perioperative analgesia in patients undergoing thoracic, chest wall, or breast surgery, or for pain management with rib fractures, which can be performed with or without ultrasound guidance. The ultrasound guidance technique can be used to identify the thoracic paravertebral space, guide needle placement, monitor the spread of local anesthetic (LA) solution, and reduce complications such as pleural puncture and pneumothorax. The possibility of assessing anesthetic spread in real time using ultrasound guidance during paravertebral block offers numerous advantages, including the immediate and accurate identification of the extent of nervous block, with a consequent reduction of LA dose...

Transthoracic ultrasound has lately emerged as a useful diagnostic tool for respiratory physicians in the diagnosis of diverse pulmonary diseases, usually including pleural effusion and pneumothorax. However, the use of chest ultrasound may be also critical in the evaluation of chest wall diseases. Therefore, we present an interesting case of a patient with metastases of lung cancer to the rib, detected during the chest wall ultrasound examination. By representing a non-invasive, surface-imaging technique with several advantages, chest ultrasound may evolve to a valid, bed-side diagnostic tool for the diagnosis and follow up of lung cancer with metastases in the chest wall...

INTRODUCTION: A tension hydrothorax is defined as a massive pleural effusion presenting with hemodynamic abnormalities secondary to mediastinal compression. In these patients pleural volume increases intrathoracic pressure to the point of compromising diastolic filling and cardiac output simulating a cardiac tamponade physiology. This is an uncommon yet potentially fatal medical emergency that if left untreated may progress to cardiac arrest. Early detection and rapid intervention of these patients prevents cardiorespiratory collapse...
