45 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Congenital Malformation of the Ribs

  • Congenital Malformation of the Ribs

    The diagnosis is usually based on the physical examination (asymmetric chest) or on chest x-ray (unilateral hyperlucent lung). 1 This is not the case in our patient.[] Applicable To Accessory rib Congenital absence of rib Congenital fusion of ribs Congenital malformation of ribs NOS Type 1 Excludes Type 1 Excludes Help A type 1 excludes[] Bifid rib is a congenital abnormality of the rib cage and usually asymptomatic, often discovered incidentally on chest X-ray.[]

  • Gram-Negative Septicaemia

    When an abnormal heart murmur is detected, chest X-rays may be ordered along with an electrocardiogram (ECG), a test that measures the heart muscle's electrical activity.[] Minor criteria include medulloblastomas, ovarian fibroma, congenital malformations like cleft lip/palate and other radiological abnormalities.[] Structural and functional abnormalities of the heart and its blood vessels can be analyzed through the reflection of sound waves (echocardiogram).[]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

  • Mucoid Impaction of the Bronchus

    A transbronchial removal of this mucous plug relieved her symptoms and diminished abnormal shadows in the chest X-ray.[] , pectus excavatum Ultrasonographic Findings Can be detected in utero Fluid-filled upper lobe Differential Cystic adenomatoid malformation Congenital diaphragmatic hernia[] Postbronchoscopy chest X-ray was normal. Only abnormality was revealed on bronchoalveolar lavage fluid study was eosinophilia (20%).[]

  • Funnel Chest

    Physicians use chest X-rays or CT scans to create images of the internal structures of the chest. These help measure the severity of the curvature.[] Pectus excavatum is a malformation of the chest wall in which several ribs and the sternum grow abnormally, resulting in a caved-in, or sunken appearance.[] Congenital nature of the disease is confirmed by combination with other congenital malformations. Currently funnel chest in most cases is linked to dyschondroplasia.[]

  • Situs Inversus

    A 46-year-old man, non-smoker with no particular complaints was referred to our department due to an abnormal chest X-ray showing dextrocardia and homogeneous opacity in the[] […] pancreatic fibrosis (pancreatic dysplasia) congenital hepatic fibrosis short rib polydactyly syndromes ( 1481807 , 1519646 ) short rib polydactyly syndrome type 3 ( 1481807[] A routine chest X-ray of a 41-year-old asymptomatic man showed dextrocardia, a left-sided liver, right-sided stomach, and left paracardiac opacity.[]

  • Cor Biloculare

    Death was attributed to the congenital malformation of the heart, pulmonary hypoplasia, and diminished capacity of the thorax due to chondro-osseous dysplasia.[] Chondro-osseous junctions of ribs were in the anterior axillary line.[]

  • Cervical Rib Syndrome

    Other tests that aid with diagnosis that are frequently ordered: Duplex ultrasound to check for stenosis (narrowing) or occlusion (blockage) of blood vessels Chest X-ray to[] […] of spine, not associated with scoliosis Q76.5 Cervical rib Q76.6 Other congenital malformations of ribs Q76.7 Congenital malformation of sternum Q76.8 Other congenital malformations[] […] palsy, maternal uterine malformation, congenital varicella syndrome, osteomyelitis involving the head of the humerus or cervical vertebral bodies, exostosis of the first[]
