CHIEF COMPLAINT: Skull laceration. HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: This evening at 4:00 pm, patient was on a ladder to a swimming pool at the family’s single-family house. He was about 3½ feet off the ground, when he slipped and fell onto his back and head. Patient did not suffer any loss of consciousness and has been acting normally, though he has a cut over the back of his head and is quite anxious. Patient has not had any nausea or vomiting. ALLERGIES: NONE. Immunizations up-to-date. CURRENT MEDICATIONS: Ental and albuterol. PREVIOUS ILLNESSES: History of asthma. PHYSICAL EXAM: VITAL SIGNS: T 99.3°F, P 72, R 22. GENERAL: Young, Caucasian child in no acute distress. HEENT: Normocephalic. Eyes were unremarkable. TMs, no hemotympanium noted, no battle sign noted, no facial asymmetry noted. There was a 2.5 cm laceration over the occipital region of the patient's skull. This was lightly obliquely oriented. This was all the way through the skin, but the galea appeared intact and there were no palpable stepoffs. NEUROLOGICAL: Patient had grossly intact exam with normal grip bilaterally and normal knee jerks bilaterally and normal gait. Over the patient's back, there were two superficial abrasions medial to the right medial scapula border. The more superior abrasion was 2–3 cm in size. The more inferior abrasion was 4–5 cm in size. IMPRESSION: Two-point-five centimeter occipital skull laceration superifical abrasions over the right back area PLAN: The patient’s scalp laceration was treated with TAC topical anesthetic. Patient continued to have pain sensation after this, therefore, after the wound was prepped the area was infiltrated with 1% Lidocaine with epi. The wound was subsequently closed with four interrupted 4–0 prolene sutures. After being inspected, no debris or gross contamination was noted. Wound instructions were given. The patient is to follow up in 7 days to have the sutures removed.

He has had pain and swelling near the point of the left shoulder since the injury. He also complains of a recurring lump at the right base of the neck over the last several years. OBJECTIVELY: The patient is alert and in no acute distress. He demonstrates soft tissue swelling and tenderness maximal over the left AC joint. There is no deformity and pulling on the arms does not markedly aggravate the pain. The patient is able fully to abduct the shoulder. He is able to scratch behind his back and scratch behind his head. There is no distal neurovascular compromise in the left upper extremity. X-ray of the clavicle is normal. AC weighted joints are normal. ASSESSMENT: First-degree AC separation left shoulder. PLAN: A sling will be worn prn for comfort. Follow up prn PROBLEM NUMBER 2: The lump near the base of the right side of the neck on the back is palpated and felt to be consistent with a noninflamed sebaceous cyst. At the patient's request, this is removed. Under local anesthesia, an elliptical incision is made. The cyst capsule is identified and bluntly dissected from the wound. The cyst is removed intact and measures 1.5 cm. The wound is closed in layers with #4–0 Vicryl and #4–0 Prolene subcuticular stitch. ASSESSMENT: Sebaceous cyst. PLAN: The patient is given the usual wound care instructions and advised to return in 12 days for suture removal. LEFT CLAVICULAR VIEW WI'I'H AC JOINT VIEWS: The clavicle appears intact without evidence of fracture. AP and angled views of the AC joint show no widening or displacement. The coracoclavicular distance is normal. IMPRESSION: Normal left clavicle and AC joint.

EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT VISIT PATIENT: SUZANNE OFFICE RECORD NUMBER: 12-68-23 DATE OF SERVICE: 06-16-XX PHYSICIAN: DR. KIM. M. D. HISTORY: 48-year-old white female who presents. She has been taking Amoxicillin from her gynecologist for the past few days for upper respiratory infection sort of symptoms and now she has developed a blotchy rash on her left posterolateral trunk as well as her right upper extremity. This rash is extremely itchy. She has been taking some Dimetane DX but it does not seem to be helping. She then began the Amoxicillin but she has been only taking it for a couple of days. PHYSICAL EXAMINATION: Today she is in no acute distress other than the complaints of the significant pruritus along with this rash. She does not have any facial swelling or pharyngeal swelling or shortness of breath. Tympanic membranes are clear bilaterally. Throat is clear. Neck is supple. Although this is not a typical systemic reaction, it certainly appears to be more of a drug reaction than any other dermatitis that I can think of. It is mostly macular, erythematous and extremely pruritic type dermatitis in these two large areas. It is possible that it just has not developed enough time to spread to the rest of her body. She is not in any acute distress at this time. We will start her on antihistamines in the form of Seldane 60 mg bid that she will take at least for a 3–5 day period. She will discontinue Amoxicillin at this time and notify her physician that she has a drug allergy to Amoxicillin. IMPRESSION: Acute drug reaction.

SUBJECTIVE: This 72-year-old established patient presents today with complaints of a lump on the left side of his neck. The patient had been previously advised it would be best to excise the lump and send to pathology for definitive diagnosis. OBJECTIVE: Examination today reveals the patient has an area of induration, which is approximately 1.5 cm in diameter below his left jaw line. The procedure, risks, complications, and alternatives were discussed with the patient. The patient agreed to proceed with a resection of the lump today. ASSESSMENT: Lump left neck, which appears to be dermatofibroma. PROCEUDRE: The left jaw line was injected with local anesthetic. The 1.5 cm lump was excised with a wide excision. After resection, the lump appeared to be a dermatofibroma. Specimen was sent to pathology. Closure was performed with interrupted 4–0 Vicryl and Dermabond to seal the skin edges. Routine wound care was given. The patient is to follow up on a prn basis. We will call with pathology report results. PATHOLOGY: 1.5 cm Dermatofibroma left neck.

He suffered no loss of consciousness. He states he did not hurt his neck, but did note that he was bleeding from his scalp. He generally has been in good health. Is currently on Penicillin, however, for an abscess tooth. He is allergic to no known medicines. According to his mother, his last tetanus injection was 6 years ago. His weight is 66 pounds. EXAM: Blood pressure 114/80, respirations 20, pulse 78, temperature 98.3. Exam of the child reveals a well-developed, well-nourished male in no acute distress. Ears: TMs intact within normal limits bilaterally. Eyes: EOMs intact, PERRL, fundi no hemorrhages, exudates or no papilledema noted. Exam of the neck reveals no tenderness over the dorsal spines of the cervical spine. Exam of the head reveals approximately ¾ inch laceration on the posterior scalp overlying the occiput. Wound was inspected and appears to be through the subcutaneous tissue in one small area. The galea could not be visualized, but wound did not appear to extend to the galea. The wound was thoroughly irrigated with normal saline and subsequently the wound was anesthetized using 1% Xylocaine with epinephrine. Following this, the wound was closed using 4–0 Vicryl and 4–0 Prolene suture. The patient tolerated the procedure well. He was given a tetanus booster as a precaution and the mother was counseled regarding potential side effects. He has been advised to keep the wound clean and dry and his mother has been advised that he should be rechecked should the wound become reddened, increasingly painful or if any purulent drainage should be noted exuding from the wound. The sutures are to be removed in 7–10 days.
