Rt sided cp angle obliterated, sugg of pleural effusion. Just above the upper border of fluid level, fibrocavitatory lesion seen. Prominent Pulmonary arteries seen. Possibly lower lung field PTB or fungal ball. Adv USG guided pleurocentesis and analysis. Sputum analysis if possible. Asp specific antibodies IgM. Further management accordingly.

Hydropneumothorax rt side Not convinced about cavitory lesion to confirm go for hrct Tapping of effusion for diagnostic and therapeutic treatment Post covid status but interval is not specified Mild synpneumonic effusion is also seen on lt side Likely pt is hypoxic Hospitalise the pt and screen in detail Likely post covid unresolved pneumonitis with pleural effusion rt side D/d ?tubercular
