Nothing to do with milk formula.

This is yet another Zebra diagnosis but it’s a great one for illustrating some of the relevant anatomy. Let me know what you think.

Here’s the link to the article mentioned.

  1. Just wanted to say that I really like these weird little cases because they actually make the anatomy stick in my mind. I can’t just look at a image from Gray’s and remember much, but when you present a case where the anatomy plays a role in how things go wrong, it’s a lot easier to recall the how and why of both the pertinent anatomy and the disease. Double-win!
    I’m also a big fan of how you correlate the anatomy to radiologic images, adding in a third field where novices like me can gain experience. As always, thanks for these awesome videos.

  2. Thanks so much for your videos, it makes it so much easier to grasp the more detailed complicated topics and great for revision!
