Bilateral apically directed pigtail intercostal catheters in situ with only small pneumothoraces bilaterally. Small volume subcutaneous emphysema is related to the intercostal catheters.
There are multiple thin-walled cysts scattered throughout both lungs involving all lung zones, measuring from a few millimetres to 14mm. No pulmonary nodules identified. Minor dependent changes present, greater on the left. There are also tiny bilateral pleural effusions, slightly greater on the left. The thoracic duct is not overtly dilated.
There is a small, well-defined focal collection of air measuring 13mm contiguous with the right poster lateral aspect of the trachea at the thoracic inlet.
The are no enlarged hilar, mediastinal or axillary lymph nodes. Heart size is normal and there is no pericardial effusion.
On the most inferior image through the upper abdomen, well-defined fluid density is seen around the origin of the SMA consistent with nodal involvement by lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
Within segment 8 of the liver, there is a 6 mm hypodensity. No renal lesion identified within the imaged portions of the kidneys. The adrenal and imaged pancreas are also unremarkable on arterial phase imaging. A thin rim of ascites surrounds the liver.
No suspicious osseous lesion.
Conclusion: Bilateral pigtail catheters with small residual pneumothoraces.
Cystic lung disease with no pulmonary nodules is consistent with lymphangioleiomyomatosis. No renal lesion appreciated although the kidneys have been incompletely imaged.
Small bilateral pleural effusions may relate to the pneumothoraces.
A small volume of free intraperitoneal fluid is of uncertain significance.
Fluid density around the origin of the SMA is consistent with nodal involvement by lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
