Having great fun diving back in time with the image collection and uploading to media to GMEP
Trawling the case archives I came upon this old image from 20 years ago.
These are the notes I attached to the X-ray files
30 year old male fall onto outstretched hand whilst rockpool fishing
Sustained 4cm laceration to palm of hand
Wound apposed with sutures
Returns for review after 4 weeks with ‘solid lump’ palpable over hypothenar eminence.
3cm mollusk removed intra-operatively
Despite research I have yet to find another case report of a living, growing mollusk found a month after the original traumatic inoculation - would love to know if anybody thinks this is possible, or whether I am finally beginning to lose the plot…
