Metastatic rare nodule and Pleural Effusion from papillary thyroid cancer
A female patient 59 years old, underwent surgery for papillary thyroid cancer 9 years prior to this scan. She felt fatigued, expressed malaise, dry and irritating cough, shallow breath (as if unable to breathe air), pain in the right side of the back. AFTER chemotherapy treatment, which took 5 months, the patient underwent again an contrast-enhanced CT scan of the thorax to assess the response to applied therapy. On this CT scan, utilising post-contrast, arterial phase, axial tomogram we see minor pleural effusion right, without evident suspicious nodular changes in lungs parenchyma bilateral. We conclude that there was almost a complete response of the applied chemotherapy to the patient, regression of all nodular changes, as well as regression of pleural effusion - CR according to the RECIST criteria.
