Extract

A 37-year-old woman was admitted to the internal medicine department with a 20-day history of coughing and 15 days of hemoptysis. She had previously consulted with the emergency department, where community-acquired pneumonia was diagnosed, and a sputum examination was performed that was negative for acid-fast bacilli. Thereafter, she was treated with amoxicillin, 500 mg tid, for 7 days without improvement. Her medical history was irrelevant; she had had five children and an unremarkable medical history except for pregnancy-induced hypertension during her last three pregnancies and hydatiform mole 5 years before.
