Anaphylaxis, acute coronary syndrome and pulmonary embolism are conditions commonly seen in the acute medical setting which can be difficult to diagnose. Delay in establishing the correct diagnosis can result in either delayed or inappropriate treatment, and subsequent morbidity and mortality. The cases we present highlight the necessity of good clinical assessment when evaluating such patients.
