From the Editors


We are proud to publish the 15th issue of The Medicine Forum. Since its inception, this journal has provided a medium for medical students and housestaff to share their scholarly pursuits and clinical experiences with the Jefferson community. It has served as a platform both for those pursuing careers in academic medicine as well as those wishing to share their personal experiences with a larger audience. This year we are introducing a new section called Clinical Images which will showcase interesting physical exam findings and radiographic images accompanied by brief patient vignettes. We have been fortunate to have received numerous fascinating case reports, review articles, and clinical images, as well as one narrative essay for this year’s edition. Additionally, we are very proud to present original photography, artwork, and illustrations by Internal Medicine housestaff throughout this edition. We appreciate the efforts of all those involved in the publication of The Medicine Forum, particularly those individuals who have donated funds to allow for this journal’s publication, the editorial staff, Jefferson Creative Services, and the Internal Medicine Department.
