A Patient With Nonresolving Pneumonia and Arthralgias


A 61-year-old man with arthritis and an 80-pack-year smoking history presented with fever, dyspnea, and productive cough of a week’s duration that did not respond to outpatient treatment with levofloxacin. He also had worsening arthralgias in both lower extremities, particularly in his knees and ankles, accompanied by a 10-lb weight loss over the 2 months before presentation. Physical examination findings included digital clubbing and decreased breath sounds on the right side with scattered fine rales.
