Abstract When discussing cystic lung diseases, a certain group of diseases tends to receive the majority of attention. Other less frequently discussed cystic lung diseases are also important causes of morbidity in patients. Etiologies include genetic syndromes, lymphoproliferative diseases, infections, exogenous exposures, and a developmental abnormality. This review article focuses on the clinical and imaging features of these other cystic lung diseases.

Certain entities may simultaneously involve the lungs and the myocardium. Knowing their cardiac and thoracic manifestations enhances the understanding of those conditions and increases awareness and suspicion for possible concurrent cardiothoracic involvement. Entities that can present with pulmonary and myocardial involvement include infiltrative diseases like sarcoidosis and amyloidosis, eosinophil-associated conditions including eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) and hypereo...

Abstract Muscular dystrophies (MDs) are a group of inherited disorders caused by mutations that interfere with muscular structure, contraction, or relaxation. As the cardiac sarcomeric unit shares multiple proteins with the skeletal muscle unit, the heart is affected in several MDs, sometimes without apparent musculoskeletal involvement. Early detection of MD-related cardiomyopathy is crucial as timely initiation of cardioprotective therapy can slow adverse cardiac remodelling. Although transtho...

Abstract Myocardial infarction with normal coronary arteries (MINCA) occurs when a patient presents with positive cardiac enzymes in the absence of obstructive atherosclerosis on coronary angiography. Several hypotheses for the pathogenesis of MINCA have been suggested and multiple potential underlying etiologies have been reported. This review will outline the reported causes of MINCA and associated major imaging features. In doing so, it will increase awareness of this entity and equip cardiac...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a disease characterized by progressive rise of pulmonary artery (PA) pressure, which can lead to right ventricular (RV) failure. It is usually diagnosed late because of the nonspecificity of its symptoms. RV performance and adaptation to an increased afterload, reflecting the interaction of the PA and RV as a morphofunctional unit, constitute a critical determinant of morbidity and mortality in these patients. Therefore, early detection of dysfunction may prevent t...
