The article describes the case of a 64-year-old woman who underwent coronary angiography. The authors mention that she found an erythematous and tender swelling at the right radial artery access site fifteen days after the angiography. They also state that a 7-day course of flucloxacillin that was prescribed failed to treat the swelling.
