El Hospital Nacional Adolfo Guevara Velasco



A couple of patients

A 24 year old man presented with crushing central chest pain aggravated by exertion. Dan diagnosed indigestion and suggested that Dave never again drink 1.5 litres of fresh passion fruit juice just before going to bed.

A 23 year old male student presented with scalp pain and serous discharge from the head. On examination, the scalp was erythematous and scaly. Dave suggested Dan wears a hat in future or at least keeps out of the sun after having his head shaved.
