409 Clinical Correctional Conundrums*

Correctional medicine is arguably a subspecialty due to the uniqueness of the settings, the patients, and the administrations. There are also clinical conditions that are more common in the correctional setting than in the community. This talk will go over a few of these, including "jailhouse rash," pseudoseizures, and weightlifter chest pain. Presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of these conundrums will be reviewed.

Educational Objectives

  • List several medical conditions that are uncommon in the nonincarcerated population
  • Describe how to use history and physical skills to diagnose "jailhouse rash," tinea versicolor, and other conditions
  • Discuss ways to manage these clinical conundrums
