ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 65-year-old man who was transferred to a residents' physician clinic for evaluation of fever, with symptoms including cough productive of creamy white sputum, and nasal congestion of three-months duration. He had a history of asthma, seasonal allergic rhinitis, aspirin intolerance, and benign prostatic hypertrophy. Chest radiography revealed slight fullness of the right hilum, while ultrasonography of the abdomen indicated no hepatobiliary abnormalities.
