i am currently doing a particular rotation, and there is a patient here that had necrosis (bad infection) of both of their forearms due to drug abuse, had to get taken to the OR for wound debridement. the arms ultimately may be amputated. making the story even better, they have a weird condition that causes them to eat unusual things, classically dirt. but in this case, the patient was eating their infected scabs from the forearms.

i thought the patient looked familiar. turns out it is actually a minor celebrity.
