Case Study
The article presents a case study of a healthy 36 year old man with suspicion of pleural effusion found in the chest radiography. The man never had any symptoms of respiratory problem. His examinations showed that he had decreased breath sound and tactile fremitus on the left side of the chest. It also showed dullness occurring on the left side. Computed tomography scan confirmed the formation of hernia due to peritoneal fat forming because of the changes on the left side of the chest.
