Case 98 – part 1 – the beginning

Welcome to our new case!

We will do 2 short cases this week.

In our first case we start in general practice.

A 42 year old patient has come to see you as he has been training for a marathon and he isn’t getting the times he expects to (although he can still do 26 miles in about 3.5 hours!). He is a regular marathon runner and normally does a lot better than this.

He had his appendix removed for acute appendicitis aged 21 but has no other PMH.
