This week’s case is a 5-year-old dog with persistent pulmonary infiltrates. This one is subtle. Can you see the infiltrates?
FindingsOn the right lateral projection, there is an ill-defined region of increased opacity superimposed over the heart. This is visible on the ventrodorsal projection in the left caudal lung lobe. The pulmonary parenchyma is otherwise normal. The cardiovascular structures are normal in size and shape. There is mild increased opacity dorsal to the second sternebra.
- Pulmonary infiltrates – DDX granuloma, pneumonia, abscess (possible relation to ingested foreign body 4 months previously).
