Özet

Empty azygos fissure implies dislocation of the azygos vein to the mediastinal side of the right upper lobe from azygos fissure, which is usually secondary to pneumothorax, pleural effusion, parenchymal fibrosis, vertebral collapse or persistent vomiting. We are presenting here a case where a separated azygos vein in CT and radiography images was noted. Moreover, in the follow-up images, it appeared that the complete reexpansion of the right lung resulted in reentrance of the azygos vein into azygos fissure in its native position.
