Abstract

A 71-year-old male presented with progressive exertional breathlessness and cough for the last four years. His breathlessness aggravated after a heavy meal and on lying down. He was a smoker, but had no co-morbidities. He did not remember any major trauma or surgery. Examination of the respiratory system revealed mediastinal shift to the left, diminished breath sounds over the whole of the right hemithorax and gurgling sounds all over, mainly the infrascapular area. Examination of other organ systems revealed no abnormality.
