ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of an 84-year-old woman with a history of atrial fibrillation accompanied with cough, lethargy and heart failure. Despite persistent symptoms, the woman is said to fail to see a physician for many years. Physical examination and chest radiography have been undertaken which determined an elevated jugular venous pressure and a cardiomegaly. Further findings have shown an enlargement of right atrium with severe pulmonary hypertension.
