Friday Rounds July 20, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — the108 @ 7:00 am

Good morning my crispy, little interns. It is time for our weekly rounds.

Today’s patient is a 37 year old man by the name of Nigel Pennyworth who was brought to the hospital by his wife after she became very concerned when her husband’s bizarre symptoms became worse.

The Pennyworth’s reside in the UK but have come to the United States to vacation as Mrs. Pennyworth thought that maybe her husband was needing a break. According to her, he has been acting peculiar for the past eleven months and his entire health and personality seem to be deteriorating very quickly.

Nigel’s problems began when his posture started to become hunched both while he was upright and while he was sitting down. It seemed to gradually get worse but eventually Nigel began having bouts of muscle spasms and twitching, which he attributed to dehydration as he suddenly could not bring himself to eat and he experienced rapid weight loss.

Mrs. Pennyworth reports that in the last few months, Nigel has become increasingly more agitated and aggressive, often striking out in a destructive manner.

Nigel also began getting frustrated with memory loss and poor reflexes, diminishing eyesight and a loss of balance. He was having difficulty speaking and had a tendency to mumble before he stopped talking altogether. More recently he seems to be experiencing dementia, bizarre outbursts of laughter and foaming at the mouth.

Given what we now know about Nigel Pennyworth, we must diagnose him stat!

Be gone, fair interns… off you go to try to unravel the medical mystery that IS… Nigel Pennyworth.

As usual… leave your diagnosis in the comments section but know that comment moderation will be turned on to prevent cheating. Only wrong answers will be put through to post so that others may use them to rule things out like a good, little doctor. Those with correct answers will receive an email.

Good luck!

Oh… and this weeks prize to whoever is able to come up with the right answer will be:

A slice of finely aged American cheese encased in a protective outer wrapper to conserve flavor and freshness!!!

Don’t pass this one up, folks.
