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 44-year-old woman presents with progressively worsening dyspnea for one week. There is no history of orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, chest pain, or cough.
She was completely asymptomatic prior to this, has no comorbidities, and is not on any medications. There is no history of recent trauma. She has never smoked, and only drinks socially.
A complete blood count and electrocardiogram (ECG) are found to be completely normal.
