Injured list

Filed under: Teaching — williamthecoroner @ 21:46

So this morning, after the anatomist with one hand lectured, the one-eyed pathologist and the one-legged pathologist teamed up to explain all of neuropathology in 60 minutes or less.  The take home messages were:

  • if it’s a sliver stain, it’s Alzheimer’s disease,
  • if it has Rosenthal fibers, it’s a pilocytic astrocytoma,
  • if it looks glandular, it’s a metastasis,
  • Lewy bodies are made of alpha-synucleinlewy-bod
  • if there’s a metastasis in a meningioma, that’s insult to injury and it’s breast cancer.
  • No one has figured out the epilepsy question

  2. Did you or any of your morning lecturers ever see mucosal melanoma? A friend of ours was just diagnosed. I’ve heard it’s very rare.

    Maybe your car wants you to move to a warmer climate.

  3. Prof, I know why it does that, and yes it will. Sorry.
    If you get a chance, find a place that does a transmission ‘fluid exchange’ service, *not* a flush. It might help.
