e.g.
For several hours each day he suffered from a central stabbing chest pain, which was relieved by sitting, and exacerbated by standing, although he was still able to play football. Chest examination revealed that expiration was poor, and there were a few basal crepitations, but there was a resonant percussion note and no wheezing or stridor. The cardiac apex was laterally displaced, with a gallop rhythm and a pronounced murmur, but there was no evidence of arterial disease. B.P. 110/80. No lower limb oedema. The patient complained of diarrhoea and his upper left abdomen was tender. There was no previous medical history, no family history, no evidence of drug abuse or anabolic steroids. He was a non-smoker, non-drinker and he had not travelled abroad. How does the patient's history help in diagnosis?
