Extract

A 55-year-old woman presented with intermittent palpitations. She received a diagnosis of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and was treated accordingly. Her history was significant for lung disease, diagnosed with chest radiograph when she was in her teens. Her brother had also received a diagnosis of lung disease when he was in his late teens. She is an accountant who does not smoke. She was treated with several inhalers (albuterol, salmeterol, and fluticasone) and supplemental oxygen at night and as required during the day. She did not undergo lung biopsy and has been assessed for a possible lung transplantation.
