Abstract

A 55-year-old patient from North Africa had been suffering from various symptoms including dyspnea, chronic coughing and chest pain. She had a plain X-ray that showed several pulmonary nodules and was therefore given a CT scan, which revealed a number of walled, cyst-like lesions, scattered in her right lung, mediastinum, heart, liver and retroperitoneum, invading the superior vena cava and compressing it.
