This is associated with high mortality secondary to pulmonary hypoplasia (60%). Small hernias are often asymptomatic containing a small amount of fat only. They have a reported incidence up to 6% in adults. Clinical features     Large hernias are diagnosed antenatally with US. Neonates may present with respiratory distress early in life. Early corrective surgery is recommended. Smaller hernias are usually asymptomatic with incidental diagnosis made on a routine CXR. Occasionally solid organs can be trapped within the chest compromising the vascular supply.

Clinical features  Asbestos plaques are asymptomatic. Any chest symptoms should alert the clinician to the potential complications of asbestos exposure. Radiological features    CXR – focal areas of pleural thickening (<1 cm). They are usually bilateral and may be multiple. Plaques are more visible when they calcify and calcified plaques have a thicker peripheral edge than central portion. When they are seen en-face they have an irregular ‘holly leaf’ appearance. Non-calcified plaques seen en-face can give a patchy density to the lungs.

G. RTA). Patients may be asymptomatic particularly if the rupture is small and intramural. Most cases present with severe substernal pain radiating through to the back. Patients may be breathless, hypotensive, tachycardic or moribund. Radiological features    36 CXR – look for widening of the mediastinum on CXRs. It is very rare to see aortic rupture in a patient with a normal CXR. Other features on the CXR include loss of the aortic contour, focal dilatation of the aorta and a left apical cap (blood tracking up the mediastinal pleural space).
