Chilaiditi syndrome

Case contributed by Dr Matt Skalski

Patient Data

Age: 55 years
Gender: Male
X-ray

A confined region of gas is observed under the right hemidiaphragm. 

The contour of the diaphragm is also altered, with large and somewhat focal protrusion superiorly. This is likely related to poor inspiratory effort, but may also be due to eventration.
