Abstract

The authors present a case of a 65‐year‐old male who presented four times to the emergency department (ED) with left‐sided chest pain. On the first three visits, the patient was admitted with a different diagnosis related to his chest pain. On the final visit, an abnormality on an imaging study performed in the ED led to the ultimate diagnostic test revealing the cause of the patient’s symptoms. The patient’s clinical presentation and ultimate clinical course are summarized, and a discussion of the differential diagnoses of his condition is presented.
