Rt apical fibrobronchiectatic lesions with tracheal deviation towards right. Hyperinflation sugg of COPD emphysema. Min Left pleural effusion seen. Findings sugg of PTB sequelae with COPD emphysema. Evaluate for active secondary infection and Koch's relapse. Also adv CECT thorax and Echo CD.

There is fibrocavitory changes in rt upper lobe with trachea deviated to rt side. Also Rt hium is pulled upward probably due to fibrosis or post obstructive collapse of upper lobe. - Rt oblique fissure pulled upward. It is convex from below upward. - It could be due obstruction of upper bronchi due to endobronchial obstruction of leads to atelectasis of upper lobe or it could be nass . Do CBC with ESR. Sputum for AFB ( three samples) CBNAAT, chest and Bronchoscopy. - Rt sided diaphragm pulled upward due to fibrocavitory changes in upper lobe or collapse of upper lobe . - Gradual dyspnea could be due collapse of upper lobe due EBTB or mass or due to fibrocavitory changes and loss of volume of rt sided lung
