Extract

A 57 -year-old woman presented to her general practitioner with progressive shortness of breath that had existed for 1.5 years. The symptoms became obvious while moving to a new home. Because breath sounds of the left lung were found to be almost absent, a chest radiograph was made that showed opacification of almost the entire left hemithorax. Subsequently, the patient was referred to a pulmonologist for further analysis.

Her medical history was unremarkable except for the extraction of a polyp from the uterine cervix. She never smoked and was not on medication.
