Traumatic Lung Cyst-CT
This is a 16 year old male who developed hemoptysis following RTA. CT scan revealed subpleural alveolar opacification along with cystic lucency, which possibly represents contusion with post traumatic lung cyst. These traumatic lung cysts or lacerations usually not apparent at first because of surrounding pulmonary contusion. They are usually subpleural location under point of maximum impact.
