male, 51 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Chest X-ray

    Chest X-ray (frontal and lateral projections) shows a right hilar opacity with indistinct borders, diagnosed as pneumonia of the right upper lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Lung; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Chest X-ray

    Follow-up chest X-ray shows a normal study, with resolution of the pneumonia in the right upper lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Lung; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Chest X-ray

    Four months later a chest X-ray reveals a consolidation in the same location as the first time.

  • Figure 4
    Chest CT
     

    Chest CT [axial (a and b) and sagittal sections (d)] shows post-obstructive pneumonia caused by a complete occlusion of the anterior segmental bronchus of the right upper lobe due to hypodense mass.
