    54 i. The chest X-ray shows lymphadenopathy in the right paratracheal and left hilar regions. ii. The differential diagnosis lies between sarcoid, TB, and lymphoma. iii. The history does not help to differentiate between these conditions so a tissue diagnosis is mandatory. Once lymphadenopathy of the cervical (which commonly co-exists with mediastinal nodes) and other peripheral nodes has been excluded by physical examination and ultrasound examination of the neck, bronchoscopy may be a reasonable first step as it has a high yield for the diagnosis of sarcoid and TB.

    I. What does this chest X-ray show? ii. What is the likely underlying cause? iii. How should the patient be managed? 26 31 25, 26: Answers 25b 25 i. The chest X-ray (25a) shows bilateral peripheral airspace shadowing suggestive of consolidation. The CT scan (25b) shows patchy dense peripheral consolidation. ii.

The CT scan appearances are characteristic of an organizing pneumonia, a complication of amiodarone treatment.

    Pulmonary emboli can present, like this case, as a cause of acute dyspnoea and may be associated with haemoptysis and pleuritic chest pain. On examination, there are often few signs, but there may be a pleural rub or small effusion. Massive pulmonary emboli can present with cardiogenic shock, signs of right heart strain, and sometimes cardiac arrest. Multiple small pulmonary emboli can cause pulmonary hypertension and present with an insidious onset of dyspnoea; there may also be signs of pulmonary hypertension on examination.
