Tuberculosis, hilar adenopathy




Zoom

Follow-up radiograph

COMMENTS

The radiograph demonstrates right hilar adenopathy and a right middle lobe infiltrate with air bronchograms. Notice the sharp crescentic lower border of the infiltrate defining the right middle lobe fissure. The presence of the hilar adenopathy would be atypical of conventional pneumococcal pneumonia and a search for cavitation would help verify tuberculosis as a potential agent.
