A 75-year-old female presented with ‘rattling’ noise in her chest when she lay down. She was a non-smoker and had no other significant history. A bronchoscopy was performed which was normal apart from some minor extrinsic compression of the proximal right lower lobe bronchus. PA and lateral CXRs were performed (Images 1a, b) followed by a CT (Images 2a–c).
