Active PTB

Asymptomatic patient. CXR done for medical check up showing soft consolidation with cavitation in right upper zone and left mid zone. These are consistent with active tuberculosis.


Note a small nodule on PA view hidden between the left clavicle and the 1st rib. An apical view was done and demonstrated the nodule clearly. This is consistent with a granuloma.
