BOF: 3.40

A 46-year-old male presents with chest pain. He has a chest x-ray and the radiology registrar who reports on it tells you that the only abnormality he can see on it is a “reverse comma sign” in the right apex.  Your house office asks you what this is and your reply is that the reverse comma is caused by failure of migration of the azygos vein during development and it is made up of:

a)      Fibrous tissue and the azygos vein

b)      Parietal pleura and the azygos vein

c)      Visceral pleura and the azygos vein

d)      Visceral and parietal pleura and the azygos vein

e)      Azygos vein
