Nonresolving pneumonia in an otherwise healthy patient

Nonresolving pneumonia in an otherwise healthy patient

Clinical Pulmonary Medicine 11(3): 198-200

A 23-year-old man who had recently immigrated to the USA from Mexico presented to an emergency room for fever and cough which was productive of brownish-appearing sputum. Right-sided pleuritic pain was also present. The patient was started on antibiotics for presumed pneumonia and was discharged. Several weeks later, the patient was admitted for fever, chest pain and cough. Chest radiography revealed right pleural effusion, for which a thoracostomy tube was placed.
