The history of medicine includes many errors. Some persisted for decades and caused great harm. Several are highlighted in this article, including the mythical thymic diseases: thymic asthma and status thymicolymphaticus. Some medical mistakes, such as the diet-heart hypothesis of Ancel Keys, continue to cause harm. To avoid future errors and their associated harm, I suggest a cultural shift encouraging professional humility and greater questioning of medical dogma. Medical education focused on teaching students this history may help with this cultural shift...

INTRODUCTION: A bilateral large spontaneous pneumothorax to our knowledge has never been reported after a device implantation. We report an unusual case of a patient developing spontaneous bilateral large pneumothoraxes after an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator generator and lead revision without evidence of any obvious traumatic cardiac injury. CASE PRESENTATION: A 79-year-old white man was scheduled for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator generator change and addition of an atrial lead...

INTRODUCTION: Intussusception usually is associated with children, rarely with adults. CASE PRESENTATION: A 42-year-old pregnant woman (29 weeks' gestation) reported mild pain in the upper aspect of the abdomen after an intense physical effort. Ultrasound examination found a normally evolving pregnancy and a bowel obstacle, without bowel distention. Because it was not a surgical emergency at the time of evaluation, she was sent to the hospital's Obstetrics Department...

INTRODUCTION: Incidence of well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the colon and rectum is increasing and is now approximately 1 per 100,000 in the US. NETs are either well-differentiated (indolent) or poorly differentiated (aggressive). The majority of these tumors are found incidentally during screening colonoscopies and rarely are associated with symptoms of hormonal syndrome, even during the advanced stage. Metastatic well-differentiated NETs of the colon and rectum are incurable, hard to treat, and associated with a poor prognosis and survival rates similar to colorectal adenocarcinoma survival...

Religion is an important part of many patients' cultural perspectives and value systems that influence them during advanced illness and toward the end of life when they directly face mortality. Worldwide violence perpetrated by people identifying as Muslim has been a growing fear for people living in the US and elsewhere. This fear has further increased by the tense rhetoric heard from the recent US presidential campaign and the new presidential administration. For many, this includes fear of all Muslims, the second-largest religious group in the world with 1...

INTRODUCTION: We studied the presenting symptoms, time intervals, and workup involved in the diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in an integrated health care system. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all patients with a nasopharyngeal carcinoma diagnosis between 2007 and 2010 at Kaiser Permanente Northern California. Main outcome measures included diagnostic time intervals, presenting symptoms, diagnostic accuracy of nasal endoscopy, imaging, and diagnosis at first otolaryngologist (Oto-HNS) visit...

Timothy Munzing
Prescription opioid use for relief of noncancer pain has risen dramatically in the last 15 years, contributing to a quadrupling of opioid overdoses and prescription opioid-related deaths. This crisis is resulting in heightened attention by health care professionals and organizations, law enforcement, and the government. In this article, I highlight key topics in the management of patients using opioids (or potentially needing opioids) in outpatient clinical practice; federal and state law enforcement actions regarding physicians' illegal prescribing of opioids; multimodal approaches to pain control; nonmedication management of pain; response strategies when suspecting a patient of diverting or misusing opioids; and warning signs for abuse or diversion...

CONTEXT: Fragmentation in geriatric hip fracture care is a growing concern because of the aging population. Patients with hip fractures at our institution historically were admitted to multiple different services and units, leading to unnecessary variation in inpatient care. Such inconsistency contributed to delays in surgery, discharge, and functional recovery; hospital-acquired complications; failure to adhere to best practices in osteoporosis management; and poor coordination with outpatient practitioners...

INTRODUCTION: Addressing the multifaceted health and mental health needs of ethnically and culturally diverse individuals is a challenge within the current health care system. Integrated care provides a promising approach to improve mental health treatment-seeking disparities; however, adaptation of care models to impact African Americans is lacking. Although resources to support engagement of diverse populations in depression care exist, little has been developed to tailor patient preferences in accessing and engaging mental health services that are integrated into primary care...

REVIEW
Ceyda Zarifi, Shuchi Vyas
INTRODUCTION: Spice is a synthetic cannabinoid that is readily available for purchase in smoke shops at relatively low cost. Spice is not detectable upon routine drug screening, making it an increasingly popular new street drug. CASE REPORT: A 21-year-old man presented with new-onset seizures. During the next 2 days, he developed uncontrollable hypertension, agitation, respiratory failure requiring intubation, pulmonary hypertension, and acute kidney injury (AKI) with a maximum blood urea nitrogen/creatinine level of 54/7...

CONTEXT: Cholecystectomy is the most common general surgery procedure in patients older than age 65 years. By 2050, it is estimated that 2.0% of the population will be older than age 90 years. OBJECTIVE: To assess the mortality of cholecystectomy in superelderly patients (≥ age 90 years). DESIGN: Using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database, a retrospective analysis was performed of superelderly patients who underwent laparoscopic and open cholecystectomy between 2005 and 2012...
