    this is more for people who have extra time and don't want to be blindsighted by a random disease you have never heard of i.e McCune Albright syndrome (yes, i know its in 2009 FA, but i have 2008)

    If you can, List the disease and a brief synopsis

    Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD)
    - osteochondritis deformans= juvenilis
    -osteonecrosis of the capital femoral epiphysis of the femoral head.

      • Triad: tinnitus, vertigo, and hearing loss. Sx occurs in episodic.

      This one is certainly in FA09. Saw it yesterday...but wait a minute, maybe I'm confusing this for Menetrier's Disease. Darn it! :smuggrin:
