This is an Xray of an 11 year-old boy, who presented with 4-month history of coughing, with intermittent fever and generalized lethargy. He has been in contact with his neighbour, who's an IV drug user with refractory chronic cough.
I guess you should be able to get the diagnosis now. His sputum AFB is >50/L (++++)! Bad pulmonary tuberculosis. Xray showed multiple cavitative lesions bilaterally with patchy consolidation in right middle zone.
Beware of your coughing neighbours!=p
