Case contributed by Dr Jeremy Jones


Cough and increasing work of breathing.

Patient Data

Gender: Male

Confluent airspace opacity in the right upper and mid-zones consistent with infection.

Case Discussion

Pediatric patients do not usually present with confluent airspace disease as a result of infection. Infection is usually viral and causes rather non-specific findings, such as peribronchial thickening and patchy airspace infiltrate.
