Dr. Amit Dhar,

Sydney Hospital

21 Elizabeth Street



(Today’s date – April 2018)

Dear Dr. Dhar,

Re: Mr. Alex Turner, 54 years.

Thank you for seeing Mr. Turner, an accountant, who is experiencing auricular inflammation and swollen pinnae for the last six weeks. (Organise the contents of body paragraphs before deciding on possible reason and most important issue. No possible reason is given for auricular inflammation.)

Mr. Turner developed sensitivity and tenderness in ears three months previously but during the preceding six weeks his ears turned red and sore. He also experiences a ringing feeling in his ears. Around two months ago, he suffered from redness in eyes and was diagnosed with Episcleritis. On further examination, he revealed that he suffers from pain in joints, knees, and wrist. His ECG, Chest X-ray, and Lung function tests are normal and he has no related respiratory tract or cardiovascular problem. He drinks occasionally and has never smoked. (Write the recent symptoms and examination by connecting them in the right order of chronology and importance through proper cohesive devices.)

My provisional diagnosis is that he suffers from Relapsing Polychondritis. Therefore, I am referring Mr. Turner for further investigation. (Justify why you’re referring.)

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours Sincerely,
