Figure 1: Bilateral lower lobe consolidation

Mentions: Ultrasound examination showed edema of the subcutaneous tissues, but no focal collections. Skin biopsies of the abdominal and right calf lesions were obtained. Initial gram stain of the biopsy specimen did not show any organism. Subsequent urine and blood cultures were sterile. Computed tomography (CT) scan of the thorax [Figure 1], abdomen and lumbar spine showed an inflammatory mass lesion within the right lower lobe lung with edema of the left iliopsoas muscle.
