Typographical errors may either be the result of recording incorrect data as placed on the requisition form or a secretary transcribing an incorrect word or phrase. The result is often amusing and unexpected. The following phrases are taken from actual reports (before being finalized)!


History of Melanoma; melanoma vs. erogenous pigmentation
Undesired testis
The skin was moist and dry...
The lab test indicated abnormal lover function...
Skin: somewhat pale but present…


Erythema nervosum (for erythema nodosum)
