    A tetrad of reported laboratory abnormalities consisting of elevated liver enzymes, lactate dehydrogenase, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and hypoalbuminemia was detected.[] Despite such an extensive consolidation, respiratory symptoms such as cough and breathlessness were inconspicuous thereby posing a diagnostic dilemma.[] Laboratory testing revealed an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (49 mm per hour; normal range, 0 to 20) and increased levels of C-reactive protein (120.5 mg per liter[]
