In a closed pneumothorax there is no movement of air and, in a valvular pneumothorax, air may enter on inspiration but remain on expiration, eventually causing a tension pneumothorax. Fig. 22. Small left pleural effusion and moderate size right pleural effusion due to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Mediastinal lymphadenopathy and bilateral pulmonary nodules are also present. Radiological Appearances In the absence of pleural adhesions a small pneumothorax, in the erect patient, collects at the apex. The lung retracts towards the hilum, and its visceral pleura may be visible as a sharp white line separate from the chest wall (Fig.

Chronic relapsing polychondritis. Wegener's granulomatosis and rhinoscleroma. Primary tumors of the trachea are rare. Benign tumors present as small, well-defined intraluminal nodules. They are mostly papillomas, fibromas, chondromas or hemangiomas. Malignant tumors of the trachea tend to occur close to the carina. They are mostly carcinomas (Fig. 2) or cylindromas. They may cause a localized mass or a long stricture. Their extraluminal extent is best assessed by CT (Fig. 3). Tracheal stenosis may also be due to trauma.

Destruction of lung tissue, reduction of alveolar ventilation and air trapping are responsible for the main radiographic features of pan-acinar emphysema. These are (Fig. 6) : 1. Reduction of peripheral pulmonary vascularity. 2. Pulmonary hyperinflation. 48 Clinical Imaging B A Fig. 6A, B. Emphysema.
