Necrotizing Fasciitis (with pictures)

This guy had it, and these pictures document everything that happened - debridement, skin grafts, etc. You can see the muscle, tendons, and bone; it's rather reminiscent of when I went to The Universe Within. Maybe I'll make it to the Bodies exhibition here while it's still going.

For those of you who are interested in reading cases, there is an interesting and informative case archive.

And off-topic, I present...

Tashi Tendil shu

You can tell I've been staying up all night just surfing through YouTube...

I came across this video by three Tibetan men. This song/video is extremely beautiful. I can't understand what they are singing, but their pride and celebration of their country is beautiful :)
