ANSWER: Chest Radiograph demonstrates a large,ovoid, loculated fluid collection with well delimited superior & Lateral borders occupying most of the posterior rt thorax. CT SHOWS a heterozygous Complex loculated fluid collection. DIAGNOSIS: EMPYEMA THORACIS. D/ D LUNG Abscess

Right sided encysted effusion, internal loculations with inhomogeneous density. on xray: few left upper zone infiltrates. one vessel (probably) and few small airpockets inside.

only xray: apart from loculated effusion esophageal dilation is a possibility: (mediastinal location, no fundic gas shadow) though outline of esophagus is visble in ct so acalasia is ruled out. so the d/d: tuberculosis, malignancy, hydatid cyst USG of lesion is suggested. aspiration and fluid study after ruling out hydatid
