 Emergency admission of a 66-years-old man with right-sided and partly breath-dependent chest pain in the interdisciplinary emergency room. The complaints existed for several days and had a progressive character. Purulent expectoration and fever were negated. There was a history of COPD with occasional pulmonary exacerbations. Several weeks before the current event, community-acquired pneumonia had been treated with antibiotics. Moreover, the patient reported on multiple spine surgery procedures performed in recent months.
