Extract

A healthy 27-year-old man was seen after blunt trauma to his right chest while playing rugby. He was complaining of mild pleuritic right lower chest pain and some streaky hemoptysis. There was no history of fever, chills, night sweats, and dyspnea. He had no prior pulmonary disease. He was not receiving therapy with any medication, and he denied alcohol abuse or the use of recreational drugs.
