Ever heard of the Urologist, Dr. Pierre? He specialized in urethral-rectal fistulas.

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet but I have always liked Bezoar. Its a pretty, nice sounding word for a blob of undigested junk in someone's stomach!

Is that something like a hair ball? My cat had that problem. Wonder how a person gets that.

Here's my fave: :monkeydance:

PNEUMONOULTRAMICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS

Can you say that word 3 times successively and quickly without a mistake?

It was an official entry in a version of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary - a medical term that was in what was not a medical dictionary. It refers to a pulmonary affliction marked by the deposition of ultrafine volcanic silicon dust in the alveoli and was reported in many miners prior to regulation protective masks.

I don't think the later versions of the dictionary retained the entry. Atrophy of non-use?

Anyways...just in case you were wondering...it is 45 letters long.

PEACE.

Oh My God... this is too funny!!

Actually know someone who named their daughter Halcion!!

Fave word.... geez, there are sooo many, I can't pick just one!

For some reason...mycoxaflopin made me think of an email my mom sent me about men's meds...one of them was mydixadud.

I also love "wakey, wakey" when a patient is taking a long time to wake up after surgery.
