They occur most commonly in the right greater than left cardiophrenic
angles and rarely in the anterior mediastinum.
Chest X-ray showed nodular opacity in left upper zone likely to be an old solidified granuloma and the rest of lung fields were clear but blunting of left cardiophrenic
angle was noted which later showed on ultrasonography to be pleural thickening.
A chest X-ray revealed smoothly marginated opacity in the region of the right cardiophrenic
angle that partially enclosing the right border of the heart (Fig.
Their most common location is the right anterior cardiophrenic
Diagnosis is often suspected based on the incidental findings of a right-sided, rounded, cardiophrenic
The cysts are thin-walled and translucent, are lined by endothelial cells, contain watery yellow fluid, usually are attached by a thick fibrous pedicle, and most commonly are located in the right cardiophrenic
angle (Figure 24).
They are typically located just anterior to the aortic root, although they can occur anywhere from the neck to the cardiophrenic
Both are typically situated at the cardiophrenic
In radiographs, the foramen of Morgagni hernia appears as a homogenous mass in the right cardiophrenic
Massive contiguous pathologic adenopathy was also noted in the right cardiophrenic
