today we got to hear a really wierd history from one of our patients in the wards ...
it goes like this...
me[m]: whats ur chief complaint??[the symptom which made him get admitted]
patient:in low voice "my right testis has split into 2"
m: WTF[in my mind]!!!!!!!!??
patient: howdu saar[yes sir]..eidu varsha kelaga dana vadditu.ad aad mele nan bala gade ire beeja[means testis] yeradu aagide[5 yrs back had got kicked by a cow after which my right testis had split into 2]..adre one tingala nantara adu vondu aagithu[after a month or so it was of one piece]
m: are u sure of what u are saying???
patient: howdu saar!!![yes sir]
m: was abt to burst into a laughter but fortunately didnt do it...:D
then we decided to elicit his history more and on examining him found out that he had developed a cyst[cavity with fluid inside it-called spermatocele] just above his testis on the right side and this swelling had made him believe that he had got his testis split and after a month or so when the swelling subsided[due to absorption of those fluid] he had thought that his 2 pieces had got united]!!!...lolzzz
