Case #22


Findings

  • Mild diffuse hazy pulmonary opacities
  • No pleural effusion or pneumothorax
  • Normal size and configuration of the cardiothymic silhouette
  • Unremarkable bowel gas pattern


Diagnosis

  • Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN)

Sample Report

Mild diffuse hazy pulmonary opacities, which though nonspecific can be seen with transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN). Recommend attention on followup radiographs as pneumonia could have a similar appearance.

No pleural effusion or pneumothorax.

Normal size and configuration of the cardiothymic silhouette.

Unremarkable bowel gas pattern.


Discussion

  • Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) may or may not have associated pleural effusions
  • It should largely resolve with treatment over 24-48 hours, so followup imaging can help exclude pneumonia (which unfortunately can have a similar appearance)
