Join us as Oakstone CME’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Don Deye, sits down with Fred Lopez, MD, for a casual conversation after a recording session for the MKSAP 19 audio companion.

In this video, Dr. Lopez, a MKSAP 19 audio companion contributor, reminds us that fevers are not always associated with an infection. Learn about a patient whose chief complaint and presenting fever led to the discovery of a 6cm x 6cm mass, or cardiac myxoma, in the left atrium.
