I got all excited yesterday.
I was reviewing consultation notes and lab test results when I realized the lady had undiagnosed nonclassic congenital adrenal hyperplasia!
I must have seen just a couple in fellowship, but nothing that I had diagnosed personally. And so I was pretty excited when the lab test results made it clear to me.
I shot an email to my wife:
Wheee!!! I'm so excited. I'll be seeing a patient with congenital adrenal hyperplasia!!
And then the second realization hits me the moment I send off that email:
I'm such a nerd.
