Clinicial Case ________________________________________________________________

You ever read the medical journals for fun? Here is a typical feature from the prestigious NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE wherein the young interns are presented the patient and their symptoms then asked by the master physicians to determine the disease. Here is the currrent case:

The Missing Piece
A 21-year-old man presented to the emergency department after 2 days of increasing pain in the right lower abdominal quadrant. For the past month he had had exertional dyspnea with a cough productive of scanty yellow sputum.

Ugh--I mean is there anything more of a turn off that a bad case of scanty yellow sputum? No, there isn't. Thank you New England Journal...I think...
