Extract

A 34-year-old man presented with symptoms of left flank pain, gross hematuria, chills, and a cough productive of green, blood-streaked sputum. He was admitted to the hospital for treatment with fluids and pain control. On the second day after hospital admission, the patient complained of worsening shortness of breath, chills, and right-sided pleuritic chest pain. His medical history was remarkable for congenital agenesis of the right kidney and for illicit drug use.
