Extract

A 16-year-old Japanese boy was admitted to the department of internal medicine of our hospital with complaints of cough, fever, and left-sided pleuritic pain for 1 month. He was a smoker (20 cigarettes per day) and had inhaled paint thinner as antisocial behavior for > 1 year. He had neither a history of asbestos exposure nor a family history of malignancies. Laboratory examination findings were unremarkable except for a positive tuberculin skin test result.
