     Pediatric Radiology CasesRegion-Organ:

    Thorax-Lung  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesMost likely etiology:

    inflammatory or infectious  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesHistory:

    5 year-old boy. Fever for 5 days (up to 39,5°C), cough, oral antiobiotics. No change in findings.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesPathomorphology or Pathophysiology of this disease :

    In immunocompromised children, pulmonary abscesses are most commonly caused by staphylococci. The abscessing staphylococcus pneumonia has, however, become rare.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesRadiological findings:


    X-Ray 1 <- view X-Ray 1

    X-ray 1: Left-sided findings on admission: Round opacity in the right lower lobe (red arrow). Right-side: After treatment (ultrasound-guided drainage and 14 days antibiotics): Only minimal pleural thickening (green arrow).




    Ultrasound 1 <- view Ultrasound 1

    Ultrasound 1: Located near the thoracic wall, an intrapulmonary process of about 2.5 x 2 x 2 cm can be seen (pointed angle between pleura and process) with membranous wall. After treatment, there is only a hypoechoic leftover of the previous abscess membrane to be seen, which was seen even after many weeks.




    CT 1 <- view CT 1

    CT 1: round, process with isodense fluid with a small air-fluid level. The air which is seen is fairly pathognomonic for an abscess.




    MRI 1 <- view MRI 1

    MRI 1: After treatment: Triangular changes which show increased signals in the area of the right pleura. (This is a residual finding of the abscess' membrane)

     

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesDiagnosis confirmation:

    Imaging including endoscopy  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesWhich DD would be also possible with the radiological findings:

    Pneumonia  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesCourse / Prognosis / Frequency / Other :

    An ultrasonic steered drainage is possible only in lung abscesses close to the walls. In completely intrapulomary abscesses, a CT-steered drainage is possible.
