>Guts Within Guts


Another case from class. The story here was that this film was from the mother of one of the docs here at our hospital. She had been complaining of belly pain for a while and when she finally went in to be seen (with no help from her son, haha), this is what they saw, Ascaris Lumbricoides (round worm) , which apparently was finding the barium to be quite tasty, as not only do we see the patients GI track, but also the worms.

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.
