Case Report

ABSTRACT Dry cough and fatigue are among the most common complaints seen by providers in primary care and acute care settings. Because they are common and often self-limited, these symptoms are frequently underevaluated. Clinicians should obtain a complete history and perform a physical examination, being alert for accompanying signs and symptoms that may suggest a more serious underlying condition.

Dayna Bernstein is an assistant professor in the Red Rocks Community College PA program in Lakewood, Colo., and practices emergency medicine at Emergency Physicians at Porter Hospital in Denver. The author has disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
