Extract

A 28-year-old man presented with increasing shortness of breath. He described a 5-month history of intermittent abdominal pain and weight loss. This had followed a brief illness during a boisterous summer holiday in the Balearic Islands, which had been characterized by nausea and a short-lived, vague abdominal pain. He was a smoker of 12 pack-years and denied excessive alcohol intake. A chest radiograph was performed (Fig 1 ). Following a diagnostic pleurocentesis and after insertion of an intercostal drain, a CT scan of the chest was obtained (Fig 2 ).
