15A and B Contrast CT chest shows moderately enhancing rounded well-defined soft tissue density heterogeneous mass lesion originating from the left 4th rib laterally which is partially destroyed, few small scattered calcific densities are seen in the lesion differentiated from osteosclerotic metastases, which are usually from carcinoma prostate. The common primary neoplasm which spreads to bones is carcinoma breast, lungs, prostate, kidney and thyroid. Occult primary is a primary malignancy in which there are no localizing signs suggestive of the site of primary tumor and has not been detected by any of the available investigative protocols.

It may be associated with abnormalities of upper extremity in the form of ipsilateral syndactyly and brachydactyly. Rib anomalies may also be associated. Guinea Worm Guinea worm disease (Dracunculiasis) has been eradicated from Asia. In India, the last reported case was in July 1996 and on completion of 29 30 Chest Radiology Fig. 4 Chest X-ray shows relative translucency on left side with mild scoliosis and pseudodextrocardia Fig. 6A and B). In this case, infestation must have taken place before eradication.

Frequently, the fluid will track into the pleural fissures. A massive effusion may cause complete radiopacity of a hemithorax. The underlying lung will retract towards its hilum, and the space occupying effect of the effusion will push the mediastinum towards the opposite side. Pleural fluid may loculate due to adhesions (Fig. 2A). Locul­ ation within the pleural fissure gives appearance of a pseudo­­tumor (Fig. 2B). 3A and B). Always remember to glance through the rest of the film to look for the cause of the effusion.
