I'm a 4th yr. doing an away rotation SubI in medicine. I just have to put this out there to see if something so crazy has happen to others in IM. I'm taking care of a pt. with ESRD on HD and he came in with fever. So it looks like he has pneumonia, since everything else turned out neg. So he has these weird lesions on his legs, i guess they would be macules...it's hard to have to use all this derm wording since I can't show you a picture...but they look like scabbed over sores on his legs, not feet. Anyway, they don't bother him, they don't drain, they don't itch, they don't look infected. Well my attending today is like...I don't know what those are either. You might want to consult the dermatologists to find out what it is! Are you kidding me? I have never seriously heard of an INPATIENT derm consult before. I can see referring him when he leaves, but come on. I thought I would post it and continue my quest to 10+ posts. I'm a newbie!
