Extract

A 39 -year-old man was seen in the emergency department for vague abdominal pain. The workup at that time was unrevealing, and the pain resolved with symptomatic treatment. An abdominal radiograph series showed a nonspecific bowel pattern and an incidental right lower lung zone calcified opacity. A purified protein derivative tuberculin skin test was performed and interpreted as positive with a 10-mm induration. He was referred to the tuberculosis clinic for further evaluation. He denied any specific respiratory symptoms. His medical history was noncontributory, with a negative review of systems. He had a 10-pack-year history of smoking, with no other substance abuse. The physical examination was unremarkable.
