13-05-2015. Mr.S.G.A. aged 50yrs approached me with Chest pain and fever of 2 days duration. Patient was unable to give any significant history except that he had taken treatment for a corn on the left foot some months ago. The pain was sore and continuous - no significant modality. X-ray chest revealed a large mediastinal mass in front of the cardiac shadow and L. pleural effusion. Blood tests showed: Hb 13.3gm%; WBC count- 18,110/cu.mm; Polymorphs 80%, Lymphocytes 18%, Eosinophils 2%. My presumption was `enlarged lymph nodes'. An appointment for C-T scan was taken for the next day and simillimum in 200th potency was given till then.
