Borrowed Post, Condom Inhalation

While blog rolling recently, I found an interesting post from a blog called Life in the Fast Lane. Its from a group of Australian EM Docs.

Anyways, this post is about a women who inhaled a CONDOM! Wow. Had to be a stripper. Why else a condom during fellatio? At least now I can ask my patients with a cough, "Have you been sucking d**k lately and a load fired so strongly the wrapper came off?

Here's a copy of the post and the link.

27-year-old lady presented with persistent cough, sputum and fever for the preceding six months. Inspite of trials with antibiotics and anti-tuberculosis treatment for the preceeding four months, her symptoms did not improve.

A subsequent chest radiograph showed non-homogeneous collapse-consolidation of right upper lobe.

Videobronchoscopy revealed an inverted bag like structure in right upper lobe bronchus and rigid bronchoscopic removal with biopsy forceps confirmed the presence of a condom.

Detailed retrospective history also confirmed accidental inhalation of the condom during fellatio.

This is awesome in a morbid way. How can you not notice the condom you inhaled didn't reappear? What do these people think (nothing, obviously!)? I'll definitely keep that in mind for future differentials. ;-)

Btw., due to following the link I found a radiological pin-up calendar. An advert, but a great one I think!
