A 70-year-old female with a history of lymphoma requiring radiotherapy to the neck (29 years ago) and secondary carcinoma of the larynx (6 years ago) attended our institution for a tracheostomy change. Shortly after the procedure, she developed acute pleuritic chest pain, dyspnoea and cough. On examination, there was a right-sided wheeze which was new. A CXR (Image 1) followed by a CT scan (Images 2a–c) was performed.
