You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 57 year old lady presents with progressively worsening exertional dyspnea for 1 year, associated with a non-productive cough, fatigue and small-joint arthralgia. She is otherwise asymptomatic and her medical, drug and family histories are unremarkable.
She has never smoked and has no history of exposure to organic or inorganic dusts or environmental allergens.
Her full blood count and CRP are normal, while her ESR is 50 mm/1h.
