|Solitary Round Pulmonary Lesions in the Pediatric Population|
A SRPL is a round or oval lesion in the lung that is seen with a CXR or CT scan.
It is a rare finding in the pediatric population. As a result when stumbled upon, even an experienced radiologist might find it challenging to narrow down its vast differential diagnosis.
A CXR is usually adequate in assessing the workup of a SRPL. Ultrasound could be a valuable tool, when targeted use is being applied. CT, MRI, PET CT and nuclear scan should be retained unless the appropriate clinical setup is in place.
