Wedgie-associated radiculitis in a quinquagenarian

, : Wedgie-associated radiculitis in a quinquagenarian. Proceedings 29(4): 389-390

NlmCategory="UNASSIGNED">Wedgies-the upward yanking of another's underpants from the rear to wedge them between the buttocks-can be administered playfully, maliciously, or adventurously; at forces ranging from gentle to "atomic"; and with or without the foreknowledge or consent of the recipient. Wedgies have been documented anecdotally in the popular Internet literature, with chief emphasis on their sensation-seeking or momentary entertainment value to the giver and recipient. Most participants are typically young; however, we report the case of a 50-year-old man who sustained chronic, painless radiculitis after he received an unanticipated wedgie of moderate force. This report-apparently the first of its kind in the medical literature-serves as notice that exchanging wedgies is not merely a juvenile act or immature prank: the outcome can be injurious.

A series of beta-sulfonamide piperidine hydroxamates were prepared and shown to be potent inhibitors of the human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER-2) sheddase with excellent selectivity against MMP-1, -2, -3, and -9. This was achieved by ex...
