> ...What were you taught in your training? I was taught to look at the child, GET A FEELING FOR WHETHER HE/SHE IS SICK, AND EITHER DO FURTHUR WORKUP OR NOT DEPENDING ON YOUR CLINICAL IMPRESSION. Has this changed? I think not, and these types of questions waste our time!!
--> I realise I may well be writing from a time zone which is some way away from yours, but over here in the UK it's almost Xmas and people are more cheerful than your message leads me to believe you are...
You seem to have enough time to reply; surely you can forgive some of it being "wasted"!
The question was asked by a fellow professional who has done us the courtesy of making us feel input is welcome.
Peter Auerbach had already replied very comprehensively, although he also did not seem to consider this a very unusual presentation. Although he did inquire as to whether some details which would make it unusual was accidentally missed... I have read Peter's response and would say "ditto" (taking the lazy option)... No need to beat up on our up-side-down-cousins for asking a polite question - after all, it's nearly Xmas in their time zone as well ;-)
But if there WAS some other detail or if we have otherwise missed the mystery, I too would be interested in hearing further.
Fancy some celeb spotting?
