He was immediately resuscitated with IVF bolus and oxygen supplementation; his chest X-ray revealed right sided obliteration of costophrenic angle and displaced right lung (Figure 1).
Chest X ray showed in-homogenous opacities in the right upper lobe, linear fibrotic opacities in the right middle lobe and blunting of right costophrenic angle (Figure 3).
Repeated chest X-ray showed expanded lungs, but the left dome of the diaphragm was elevated and the costophrenic angle was blunted with retained blood in the left thoracic cavity [Figure 4].
This is seen on the lateral view with rounding of the costovertebral angle as well as on the frontal view with the disappearance of the right costophrenic angle. The right hemidiaphragm appeared elevated partly because of the accumulation of fluid in the pleural space.
