Cystic fibrosis with pneumothorax

Discussion:

The chest radiograph confirms the persistent pneumothorax with the chest drain in situ and associated surgical emphysema.  The right sided Port-a-cath is a common finding in patients with cystic fibrosis.

The CT confirms the pneumothorax and the position of the drain. The ring-shadows demonstrated on the plain film are confirmed as upper lobe bronchiectasis.
