Case 26

Show Summary Details


A 31-year-old man with spina bifida presented with acute shortness of breath and right-sided pleuritic chest pain. He denied cough, sputum, haemoptysis, wheeze, or palpitations but reported a 9-month history of gradually increasing breathlessness on exertion. He was usually able to transfer independently and mobilize with a wheelchair, but was finding this increasingly difficult.
