ABSTRACT
The article presents a quiz related to the diagnosis of a case study of a 58 year old male patient presented with a 24 hour history of nausea, vomiting, and right shoulder tip pain with associated rigors. On examination he was tachycardic, 100 beats per minute, and pyrexial but clinical examination was otherwise unremarkable. He was taking no medications and the only previous medical history of note related to a large birthmark on his leg which had been investigated when he was a child but had not required intervention. Initial laboratory investigations were also within normal limits apart from an elevated white cell count.
