Case 1

HISTORY

An elderly gentleman presented with fevers, cough and hypotension. Peripheries were warm.

ULTRASOUND FINDINGS

The LV is hyperdynamic with the walls "kissing"

DISCUSSION

A small, hyperdynamic LV can be seen in sepsis, anaphylaxis and also massive PE. The lack of RV enlargement and septal flattening exclude PE from the diagnosis.
