I feel like, 'Hey, I'm a cardiophrenic
registrar, what are you going to do about it?
On plain chest radiograph, there was obliteration of left cardiophrenic
angle with homogenous opacity in left lower and middle zone with obliteration of left cardiac and diaphragmatic silhouette suggestive of massive pleural effusion.
5 cm to the stomach after releasing gastrohepatic and cardiophrenic
They occur most commonly in the right greater than left cardiophrenic
angles and rarely in the anterior mediastinum.
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.
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.
On routine chest radiography, the hernia usually appears as a rounded mass in the right cardiophrenic
angle, adjacent to the anterior portion of the chest wall.
Their most common location is the right anterior cardiophrenic
The chest X-ray revealed right upper lobe consolidation and additionally patchy opacities in peri-hilar and pericardiac areas, and the cardiophrenic
angle of right lung and in the left upper lobe (Fig.
The term cardiophrenic
angles is sometimes used to describe the area where the heart's border comes in contact with the diaphragm.
Diagnosis is often suspected based on the incidental findings of a right-sided, rounded, cardiophrenic
