Abstract

A 28-year-old native Romanian homeless man presented to emergency department with two episodes of hemoptysis (estimated 300 ml) in the previous three days. For about two months he had been suffering from a dry cough with concurrent right-sided chest pain, asthenia, weight loss and a slight fever. Clinical examination revealed crepitations over the right lung fields. He was hemodynamically stable and no sign of respiratory distress was detected. Blood tests revealed a high CRP (72 mg/l).
