air meniscus sign


Also found in: Wikipedia.
A crescent radiolucency bordering a mass lesion, classically seen in pulmonary hydatid cysts, in which air enters the cyst forming a radiolucency between the outer layer—host—and the inner layer—hydatid membrane—of Echinococcus granulosus
The most common air meniscus in ultrasonography is caused by Aspergillus fumigatus; an air meniscus can be seen on CT scans of the oesophago-gastric junction due to submucosal haematomas of the oesophagus. It may also be seen in lung abscesses, tumours, hematomas, granulomatous infections and Rasmussen’s aneurysm
