Today's Best Exam History



Found on an order for an abdominal and pelvic CT:
28 yo s/p GSW to left thigh on Saturday Jan 28, 2012.  Reports evaluation at (outside hospital) showing bullet lodged in muscle.  States this morning, having BM and heard "clink", dug through stool and found bullet.
This is why I went to medical school, folks.

And seriously, who digs through their own poo?????
