Abstract

We present a case of a 14 -year -old girl with fever and cough in whom the chest x -ray revealed a bizarre density over the upper two thirds of the left lung. It was due to the superimposed long hair hanging on her back. Artefacts images must systematically be suspected specially when being of strange shapes.
