For today’s #FrozenSectionFriday, all you get is a smear. For this dural-based lesion, it should be all you need! What features are shown here that help with the diagnosis? #neuropath #PathTwitter 🧠🔬

Toddler wants to eat shredded cheese from a bag for breakfast, but I’m sorry. That’s not appropriate. It is to be consumed after midnight over the kitchen sink while having an existential crisis.

Mazal tov! Now it's 100% gravy! Well, 7.25% to 15% gravy, depending on the edition. But, still—a financial asset. Assets are nice to have.

having med students on the team is the best because they will randomly say things like “alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency” and make everyone have to remember what that is
