You wouldn't. You don't have a second group. You could run a one example test against some constant value, but unless that number was "0" the stat would likely be **** since you have already seen the data.

Ok sorry, in the study there are 68 patients who have had treatment. 47 of those had side effects and 21 did not. Can a fisher exact be done on this data set, for example - did the patients have side effects from treatment = yes or no

What would you want to prove using a test?

Straightforward response - why. Just report the side effect rate with confidence intervals - that would be more informative. If you don't know what you are testing, you definitely should be running a test!!!
