Radiographic Findings

On 6/26, 4 days before death, a frontal film showing the right lung demonstrated multiple areas of mass-like consolidation, at least two of which showed central cavitation. There was a small right effusion. The left lung appeared normal.

The largest area of consolidation is at the right lung base (lower arrow). Cephalad to it is another mass-like consolidation containing a central cavity. A smaller mass-like consolidation is present in the right upper lobe (upper arrow). To its right is a well-formed cavity of approximately the same size.
