Abstract

Case Presentation: A 51-year-old man presented to the clinic 8 weeks after a 6-day hospital admission for severe multilobar pneumonia caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae. His productive cough resolved after antibiotics, but he reported persistent dyspnea. He recounted a lifelong history of recurrent sinusitis but no previous episodes of pneumonia. The patient denied fever, weight loss, or tobacco, alcohol, or drug use. He worked as an upholstery craftsman with no work-related exposures. He had no bird or exotic animal exposures, and no history of travel outside Sacramento, California, where he lived. Aside from the recently completed 2-week course of levofloxacin, he was not taking any medications.
