Retrocardiac lung lobe in a neonate with Scimitar syndrome.

08:00 EDT 3rd April 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Retrocardiac lung lobe in a neonate with Scimitar syndrome."

Scimitar syndrome is a rare congenital disorder which is associated with right lung developmental abnormalities, mainly hypoplastic right lung. We present the case of a neonate with a retrocardiac lung lobe that, to the best of our knowledge, has not been described yet. Multimodality imaging can establish the diagnosis and enable a correct description of this anomaly and its anatomical varieties.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.

Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.

Atelectasis of the right middle pulmonary lobe, with chronic pneumonitis. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Inflammation of any part, segment or lobe, of the lung parenchyma.

Rare autosomal recessive congenital malformation syndrome characterized by cryptophthalmos, SYNDACTYLY and UROGENITAL ABNORMALITIES. Other anomalies of bone, ear, lung, and nose are common. Mutations on FRAS1 and FREM2 are associated with the syndrome.
