It usually occurs secondary to non-penetrating trauma. While contusion uplmonar affect anyone, children are considered more susceptible due to greater pliability of the chest wall in that age group, especially to pulmonary laceration.

Contusions follow blunt or penetrating chest trauma, are almost always seen with other chest and abdominal injuries.

Features are often not localised in a lobar or segmental pattern. Contusions usually occur adjacent to bony structures as fractures cause the contusionsand are hence seem to be peripherally located 5.


Lung Contusion: A Clinico-Pathological Entity with Unpredictable Clinical Course

An initial trauma chest radiograph may be normal. Over the first day following trauma, ill-defined geographic consolidation develop which are not sensitive for contusion, with differentials including aspiration, atelectasis confusion infection. Consolidation may be faint and usually shows rapid improvement with time, commonly over several confusion as the blood in the alveolar spaces is absorbed. Typically seen as focal, non-segmental typically crescentic areas of parenchymal opacification, usually peripheral.

Can have subpleural sparing with smaller contusions which can be a distinguishing feature. More common posteriorly uplmonar in lower lobes. In most cases, the findings are manifest at the time of the initial examination and show little tendency to increase in severity with subsequent examinations. Radiographic clearing of pulmonary contusion is relatively rapid, and the signs of contusion have often resolved within 48 hours.

By day 10 they should have resolved completely 3. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys.
