    HISTORY: Mr. Alcott is a 68-year-old man who developed a harsh, productive cough four days

    prior to being seen by a physician. The sputum is thick and yellow with streaks of blood. He also

    developed a fever, shaking, chills and malaise. One day ago, he developed pain in his right chest

    that intensifies with inspiration. He lost 15 lbs. over the past few months but claims he did not

    lose his appetite. &quot;I just thought I had the flu and a smoker&#39;s cough for &quot;10 or 15 years.&quot; He

    describes the cough as mild, non-productive, and occurring most often in the early morning. Mr.

    Alcott smoked 2 packs of cigarettes per day for the past 50 years. He is a retired truck driver with

    a history of mild hypertension, bronchitis, appendicitis (as a young adult), hemorrhoids and a

    fractured femur and splenic injury (motorcycle accident).

    PHYSICAL EXAMINATION: The patient appears tired, weak, and underweight. His

    complexion is pale, and he coughs continuously. Vital signs are152/90, apical heart rate

    112/minute and regular, respiratory rate 24/minute and labored, temperature 102.6 F. A large,

    non-tender, hard, lymph node in the right supraclavicular area. Auscultation of both lungs reveals

    bilateral diminished breath sounds, rhonchi and inspiratory crackles in the right mid-anterior and

    right mid-lateral lung fields.
