Description:This 28 year old woman presented with congestive heart failure secondary to her chronic hypertension, or high blood pressure.
The enlarged cardiac silhouette on this AP x-ray is due to congestive heart failure due to the effects of chronic high blood pressure on the left ventricle. The heart then becomes enlarged, and fluid accumulates in the lungs known as pulmonary congestion.
