dc.description.abstractA 35-year-old gentleman was referred to our respiratory clinic in September 1999 with continuous hamoptysis and a mass lesion in the right lung. He had undergone a full 6-month course for previous tuberculosis in 1995. Some months prior to the current admission, he had presented to his local clinic with haemoptysis and symptoms suggestive of pulmonary tuberculosis. Although his sputum analysis was negative for acid-fast bacilli, he was empirically put on treatment for suspected reactivation of pulmonary tuberculosis. He also has a 20 pack-year smoking history.
