I was out for a walk with my father when we saw a man with a unilaterally wasted lower limb. Upper limbs appeared normal. He hoped on a bicycle and cycled off, meaning his LL function was pretty good. My pap immediately said, this man has polio. I was rather impressed with him. (Yes, other diagnoses can be possible but I think polio's a good ddx.) I guess people from his generation would easily recognise conditions such as polio and leprosy?

Exams are so soon. Insides twisting just abit...
