Abstract:

 

The term phantom tumor describes a well-demarcated opacity resulted from pleural effusion. Phantom tumors are commonly associated with congestive heart failure causing transudative pleural effusion within pulmonary fissures. We report a heavy smoker patient with pleural effusion in the right lung resolved with pleural punction and medical management. This case report emphasise that radiological appearance of the phantom tumor is variable, depending on the volume of septated liquid and its location.

 

 

Key words:

congestive; heart failure, pleural effusion; radiography

 

 

Sažetak:

 

Termin fantom tumor može se koristiti za opisivanje dobro markiranog opaciteta koji može biti rezultat pleuralnog izliva. Fantom tumori su najčešće povezani za kongestivnom srčanom slabošću koja uzrokuje transudativni pleuralni izliv u incizuri pluća. Ovaj rad prikazuje pacijenta sa pleuralnim izlivom u desnom plućnom krilu desno stranim, strastvenog pušača, obolelog od hroničnog obstruktivnog bronhitisa kod koga je brzo postavljena dijagnoza fantom tumora I nestanak pleuralnog izliva nakon 6 dana intezivirane diuretske terapije. Ovim radom naglašavamo da je radiološki prikaz fantom tumora varijabilan, i zavisi od zapremine tečnosti u višku, kao i njegove lokacije.

 

 

Ključne reči:

fantom tumor, kongestivna srčana slabost, pleuralni izliv
