A 30 year old student presented to an accident and emergency department with peluritic chest pain of six days' duration. He was previously well with no medical or surgical history. He was on no medication. Examination was unremarkable. An electrocardiogram was performed and this was normal. Figures 1 and 2 show the chest x ray film and the computerised tomography scan that were subsequently performed.
