Two more firsts for me today. I am learning that the only way to get experience is to see lots of patients…

Case A) 2 year old boy comes in after pulling on his fathers arm. Dad refused to let his own hand move, playing a game of “I’m stronger than you” with his son. Suddenly, he starts crying and refuses to use the arm he was tugging with.

Case B) 74 year old lady unable to bear weight after slipping on wet leaves in her yard. Complains of pain right at the lateral junction of the tibia and femur.

I’ll take comments for each diagnosis and annoucne the correct diagnoses in a day (or two!). The first correct guesser for each diagnosis will get a Mr. Hassle entry highlighting their own blog (or a short bio if you don’t blog).
