A 71-year old man complained of enlargement of his distal phalanges. He did not have any other musculoskeletal complaints, and he denied pulmonary symptoms. He was a heavy smoker. Medical history was unremarkable. He did not have symptoms of cardiac or liver disease. Physical examination showed obvious clubbing of his fingers. Chest examination revealed dullness to percussion and decreased air entry at the right base. There was no lymphadenopathy. Results of cardiac examination were normal. The liver was not enlarged.
