Golden S sign

  1. 1. GOLDEN S SIGN BY- DR BHAVANA K
  2. 2. When was it first described?  It was first described by Golden Ross.  In an article called “Effect of bronchostenosis upon the roentgen ray shadow in carcinoma bronchus” 1925 AJR.
  3. 3. What is this sign? Also called as Reverse S of Golden.
  4. 4. Why does this sign occur?  First described in right upper lobe collapse usually due to a proximal mass.  The minor fissure is displaced superiorly and is concave peripherally but convex centrally, and the shape of the fissure resembles an S or a reverse S .
  5. 5. It can be seen in other lobes as well.
  6. 6. What does the sign signify? PRIMARY BRONCHIAL CARCINOMA should be suspected in any adult patient with golden S sign. Other causes: • Primary mediastinal tumour. • Metastasis • Enlarged lymph nodes The sign may be useful for distinguishing a central obstructing mass from a consolidative process such as bacterial pneumonia.
  7. 7. Bronchogenic carcinoma cannot be diagnosed definitively on the basis of this radiographic sign, but the Golden S sign should alert the radiologist to consider this sinister diagnosis.
  8. 8. THANK YOU
