Show Summary Details


A 40-year-old accountant, recently moved into the area, presented with a 3-month history of cough and, over the previous month, dyspnoea on exercise. Initially antibiotics seemed to help, although repeated sputum cultures were negative. Whilst skiing at 3000m, he developed severe dyspnoea, which greatly curtailed his physical activity. On his return he also noticed some dyspnoea during his usual exercise of cycling and circuit training.
