Case Discussion

The Bunch-of-grapes sign  has been used to describe 3 different radiological appearances.

1. The ultrasound appearance of multiple cystic spaces within the uterus as the result of hydropic swelling of trophoblastic villi within a hydatidiform mole.

2. In bronchiectasis where on plain radiograph, the dilated bronchi in approximation appear as a bunch-of-grapes.

3. The appearances of an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN).
