SK is a 39-year-old lady from Indonesia. On 11 November 2011 she came to a private hospital in Penang for a general wellness check-up. She was given a clean bill of health. She went home to Jakarta feeling satisfied and happy. However, three months later SK developed fevers and breathing difficulties. There was fluid in her lungs. Pleural tapping was done – four litres of fluid was tapped out. The doctor suggested a biopsy followed by chemotherapy. She refused and came to Kuala Lumpur for a second opinion. Here, pleural tapping, biopsy and a CT scan was done. Again she refused chemotherapy.
