Case contributed by Dr Alborz Jahangiri


Productive cough for one week.

Patient Data

Age: 45
Gender: Male

There is airspace consolidation abutting the right heart border.

There are associated air-bronchograms in the middle lobe. 


The previously noted middle lobe consolidation appears to have completely resolved.

Case Discussion

The features are compatible with pneumonia in the middle lobe.  Resolution of the middle lobe consolidation 8 weeks after treatment is appreciated on the follow-up x-ray.
