Does this freak you out? If not, it SHOULD!. This wasn't my patient but when Doctorita Bonnie Chen (my fellow "interna," aka medical student) showed me this I was impressed. Apparently the lovely gentleman he had some anaerobic gas-forming abcess that developed from his incarcerated incicional hernia. For my dear medically-savy-sisters: they went in, cleaned him up, cut out the rotten parts, and stiched him back up, and killed the bad bugs. All ended well and he later cam in bringing in half a ton of queso fresco del oriente (greeeeat cheese) for everyone.
