Wicked and Wise.

Originally uploaded by Al Bar

I had so much fun at SGH Infectious Diseases in January. We had a patient with an outpouching from his head, from an old Ommaya reservoir. I remember him telling me very seriously that it came from "pigeon shi3", something I didn't get until a while later. Pigeon faeces --> cryptococcal meningitis!

And another patient with suspected arsenic poisoning... from taking some unknown white powder from China.

Looking forward to the new posting.
