CASE OF THE WEEK
A 54-year-old male with a history of heart failure and coronary artery disease and recent LAD stenting presented with chest pain and shortness of breath.  He was noted to have a fever to 101.5 ° F and decreased breath sounds in the left lung base.   On initial laboratory workup he was noted to have normal troponin levels but an elevated white count.  His EKG demonstrated pathologic Q waves consistent with a remote anteroseptal and inferior infarct.
