This X-ray is not diagnostic, but it is not normal. All you old school docs out there give me your thoughts after you hear this. This X-ray belongs to a really nice guy who's fifty years old. He came in to see me in the ER at the insistence of his family. He is holding a pillow under his right arm up against his flank. He hurts but does not have a surgical abdomen. As you form your differential please tell me what the most important part of this purposefully obtuse and incomplete history was. More to follow. Questions about the case answered as soon as I see 'em.
