Pubmed - Accidental condom inhalation

Throughout my BSc degree, when it came to writing essays, revising a certain topic, or doing research for a poster presentation; Pubmed was generally the first place to look for journals and related information! (Of course there are other sites, such as Sciencedirect, which i quite liked)

I don't usually post twice in a day, but when clicking on a link stolen from a friend, whos still completing the extramural year in industry, and was obviously rather bored.... i was rather amused and amazed as to how he managed to find this paper on Pubmed (!!)... which was published in The Indian Journal of Chest Diseases & Allied Sciences ...

Arya et al. (2004), Accidental condom inhalation, Indian J Chest Dis Allied Sci, 46(1):55-8

"A 27-year-old lady presented with persistent cough, sputum and fever for the preceding six months. Inspite of trials with antibiotics and anti-tuberculosis treatment for the preceeding four months, her symptoms did not improve. A subsequent chest radiograph showed non-homogeneous collapse-consolidation of right upper lobe. Videobronchoscopy revealed an inverted bag like structure in right upper lobe bronchus and rigid bronchoscopic removal with biopsy forceps confirmed the presence of a condom. Detailed retrospective history also confirmed accidental inhalation of the condom during fellatio."
