The Hardest Image Challenge
1. Baking powder
This is the hardest image challenge from the New England Journal Of Medicine that I have seen. Fellow physicians, and EverythingHealth readers, I want you to go out on a limb and give me the answer.
For you non-physicians, this is a colostomy and that is a piece of bowel that is outside of the body. It is connected and can be pushed (reduced) back in where it belongs. Also, it is not really painful for the patient, although it looks really really bad.
Make your choice and the answer will be posted tomorrow. (click on the image for a better view)
