Abstract

A 60-year-old Caucasian man was admitted to our emergency department with progressive dyspnea,chronic cough and general asthenia.

Vital signs were stable with a heart rate of 90 bpm, blood pressure of 120/70 mm Hg, respiratory rate of 20 breaths per minute and oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry of 95% while breathing room air.
