Lung cancer with rib fracture

Discussion:

Multiple left sided pulmonary and pleural mass lesions. Associated pathological rib fracture. Severe pulmonary emphysema.

Findings compatible with metastatic primary lung carcinoma.

Pulmonary metastasis from an unknown primary is a differential, although less likely as no right sided mass is present.

The patient apparently had known lung carcinoma, presumably diagnosed at St Elsewhere (no prior imaging or pathology available).
