Abstract

A 28-year-old man of Japanese descent presented to the ED with a 2-month history of dry cough, shortness of breath, and weakness. He did not complain of fever, chest pain, or abdominal symptoms, and had no history of smoking. The patient's medical history was significant for an episode of ulcerative colitis 6 years previously after presenting with bloody diarrhea, stomach pain, fever, weight loss, and bilateral episcleritis. He had been treated consecutively with mesalazine, azathioprine, infliximab, golimumab, and adalimumab. Concomitant respiratory symptoms had been present during 2 flare-ups of severe ulcerative colitis disease activity and were successfully treated with a course of oral prednisone.
