Abstract: A 65-year old male presented with a three week history of weakness, dyspnoea, dry cough and right sided lower chest pain. He had spikes of temperature of 100-1021 F. The patient had been prescribed various antibiotics during this period but their effect was short - lived. His past medical history was unremarkable except that hypertension was diagnosed 8 years before and was well controlled on propranolol. The patient had emigrated to Australia in his youth and had now returned for a holiday. His former occupation was as a pump-fitter. The patient smoked 20 cigarettes daily for the last 40 years and drank a bottle of wine every day.
