This case is based on newsletter in literature by Harrison R, Warburton V, Lux A, Atan D. Ann Intern Med. 2019 Sep 3. Link below. Non-clinical elements (e.g. initials, story details, and many others) are adapted. Peer Review: Dr. Nikhil Parelkar.
I initially had one more case for video clip of a vitamin b12 deficiency I saw as a student about a woman on an overly rigorous diet. I did not release it because the details were more tough than I would like for a video clip. The clinical principles and technology of that case and this one are the same.

These cases are patients who I, or my co-workers have seen. They are de-identified and many instances have been presented in more depth in an academic setting. These videos are not individual medical advice and are for general educational purposes only. I do not give medical advice over the internet, see your own physician in person for that.
