Case #3


Findings

  • Bilateral hazy perihilar opacities


Diagnosis

  • Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN)

Sample Report

Bilateral hazy perihilar opacities without large pleural effusion or evidence of pneumothorax. Findings are favored to relate to transient tachypnea of the newborn in this term infant, though pneumonia is difficult to exclude. Recommend attention on followup imaging.

Normal size and configuration of the cardiothymic silhouette.


Discussion

  • Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) can occur without large lung volumes. It should largely resolve with treatment over 24-48 hours, so followup imaging can help exclude pneumonia (which unfortunately can have a similar appearance)
