A CT scan of the thorax targeted at the trachea (mediastinal window). Irregular nodular thickening of the tracheal wall (yellow arrows) with a marked reduction of the lumen. The white arrows point to aortopulmonary window lymphadenopathies. The red arrowhead shows the esophagus. aa: ascendent aorta, da: descending aorta, L: tracheal lumen.
