ABSTRACT

A 65-year-old male presented with complaints of left-sided chest pain and increasing breathlessness over the last three months. He had cough and breathlessness for the last five years, for which he was taking oral theophylline. He was a tobacco smoker, with a smoking index of >300. There was no other significant medical, personal or family history.

On physical examination, he was sick-looking, with a body mass index of 17.74. Digital clubbing was present. Localized tenderness was present over the midaxillary region, on the left side. Pursed lip breathing was evident, with a respiratory rate of 22/minute. There was no cyanosis, palpable peripheral lymphadenopathy, engorged neck veins, pedal edema or the like. Oxygen saturation was 89% on room air by digital pulse oxymetry. Systemic examination of the respiratory system revealed bilateral distant breath sounds and bibasilar fine-end inspiratory crepitations.
