    TSK: A Rash, and No Idea Why...

    1. Cranquis: So you've had this horribly itchy, whole-body, hive-like rash for 5 days?
    2. Patient: yes.
    3. Cranquis: And you can't think of ANYTHING that may have changed in your environment in the past couple weeks?
    4. Patient: no. i have No Idea Why i got this rash.
    5. Cranquis: So no new medications, or... (rattling off a list of usual suspects for rashes)...tick bites, deodorant, medications, foods... (still rattling)... soaps, medications, pets, poison ivy, medications...
    6. Patient: no, no, nope, nopey-nope, naw, nein, no...
    7. Cranquis: Hmm, well. This looks like an allergic reaction, and since it's been so severe for you, I think we should treat you with a short course of oral steroids, such as prednisone.
    8. Patient: oh i don't know i've heard of prednisone that's a strong medicine doesn't it cause problems?
    9. Cranquis: Yes, it can... (gives usual pros-and-cons of prednisone speech)... and can cause interactions with certain medications, such as Levaquin...
    10. Patient: oh well then i can't take it.
    11. Cranquis: Why?
    12. Patient: well because i'm taking Levaquin.
    13. Cranquis: Uhh...
    14. Patient: yeah i didn't want to tell you because i got it from my daughter i was having a runny nose and she had some Levaquin left over so i started taking it...
    15. Cranquis: ...5 days ago.
    16. Patient: uh, yeah.
    17. (Cranquis: Ok, I'm going to refer you to our audiologist, because apparently the Levaquin has also destroyed your sense of hearing.)

    Giant Ovarian Serous Cystadenoma is a very common benign ovarian tumor. The giant cyst, encompassing the whole abdomen, was detected during an abdominal ultrasound. During a laparotomy (surgical incision into the abdominal cavity), a giant, smooth, vascularized, cystic mass attached to the right ovary was encountered. An oophorectomy (ovary removal surgery) was conducted on the 35 year-old female patient.

    Not exactly sure how she could pull the “I didn’t even notice anything out of the ordiniary” card on this one.

  10. Another Classmate’s Reflection on Grenada

    "I like to compare SGU administration to the TSA; we all just wanted to get onto our MD plane, knowing full well it was going to take forever in the security line, and that dealing with the agents would be a humiliating pain in the ass, but we reserve the right to complain, because none of us could have predicted the finger probe, strip search, unexpected DRE or whatever analogy you may want to use, that the administration and professors had waiting up their sleeves for us."
