Extract

A 57 -year-old man with hemodialysis-dependent end-stage renal disease presented with left upper quadrant abdominal pain, chills, and vomiting. He also noted a nonproductive cough of several days’ duration but reported no chest pain, dyspnea, fever, or hemoptysis. His history was remarkable for a gunshot wound to the left chest requiring a thoracotomy 20 years prior. He also had hypertension and type II diabetes, and he had been treated with 6 months of isoniazid therapy for a positive purified protein derivative 20 years prior. There was a 60 pack-year smoking history, but no alcohol or illicit drug use. A chest radiograph obtained during evaluation demonstrated two lung masses, which prompted hospital admission (Fig 1).
