Explanation:
in my humble opinion these are the initials of the patient's name, although they should be followed by a comma.

The first line gives the (abbreviated) name, age, sex and occupation of the patient.

Then, follow the medical details.

It sound to me like a professor explaining a medical case history, introducing the patient, without revealing his/her name, which is irrelevant.

HTH :-)
