A 26-Year-Old Woman With a Small Right Lung and a Right-Sided Heart.


:A 26-year-old woman presented with abnormal findings on a chest radiograph. She had no significant history other than a fever 4 months prior to presentation that had resolved without a definite cause identified. She denied cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, history of smoking, environmental exposures, or prior pregnancies. She remained physically active.
