caduceus : It is the
staff with two serpents around it, used as a universal symbol for the medical
profession. The modern caduceus, showing two snakes around a single slim staff
(wand of Hermes), was a symbol of heralds and commerce. (Hermes was also the god
The correct symbol - the
staff of Aesculapius (Greek god of healing), has one serpent, instead of two.
Some medical historians believe that the caduceus symbol has its origins
from the ancient method of extracting the Dracuncula worm (guinea worm) with a

The person whom we refer to in “Hunetrian chancre”. Among
his works is the treatise On the Venereal Disease that addressed the then
unanswered question of whether gonorrhea and syphilis were different expressions
of the same disease. Hunter attempted to settle the issue by inoculating himself
in this manner. “Two punctures were made on (my) penis with a lancet dipped in
venereal matter from gonorrhea”. Unfortunately the donor of the “venereal
matter” had both gonorrhea and syphilis! Hunter soon developed a chancre on
his penis and later developed secondary syphilis. The mistaken conclusion of his
little experiment was that gonorrhea and syphilis were the same disease.
Incidentally, Dr.Hunter dies 26 years after his self-inoculation from classic
syphilitic heart disease.

afflicted with erythropoietic porphyria avoid light since it produces
burning, and they demonstrate marked diffuse hypertrichosis, scarring and
erythrodontia (red-stained teeth). Also called Gunther’s disease, some
authorities believe that people with this disease were the basis for
reports of “werewolves” in Europe.

I recently came across a question about Arnold-Chiari
malformation, I went thro indexes of a few books and invariably came across
Chiari listed in some books and Arnold-Chiari in some other books.
In case some of you out there face the same difficulty, I have tried to make
this stuff about Arnold and Chiari clear! Read on…………
Professor Hans Chiari was a German pathologist who first described these
abnormalities of the brain at the junction of the skull with the spine in 1890.
Another pathologist, Arnold, later added to the type II description, hence the
name “Arnold-Chiari Malformation” for type II Chiari malformation.
Of the four classifications of Chiari, only two types of the malformation have
practical importance, commonly referred to as Chiari type I and Chiari type II.
Types 3 and 4 are very rare.
So thats why we find Chiari in some places and Arnold-Chiari in some others!

Lisfranc’s dislocation --
Tarsometatarsal dislocation. but, WHO was Lisfranc?
Lisfranc reportedly was a surgeon in
napoleon’s army who gained notoriety for his rapid forefoot amputations as a
treatment for fracture-dislocations sustained after falling off a horse. Forced
plantar flexion of the foot (while still in the stirrup) result in this fairly
common injury at the tarso-metatarsal joint.
