Chief Complaint of the Week
Sometimes we hear medical terminology and associate it with what we think it sounds like. I had a patient who did suck that last week.
Phlebitis is defined as inflammation of a vein. My patient came in because she had been around fleas and wasn't feeling well. She was afraid she might have been bitten by the fleas and caught a case of "Flea-Bitis." Classic.
