Dorwart, Bonnie Brice MD, FACP
From the Lankenau Hospital, Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.
Reprints: Bonnie Brice Dorwart, MD, FACP, 124 Maple Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004-3031. E-mail: email@example.com.
The body of a female, 40 years old at death, in residence at the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia since 1874 reveals chondrocalcinosis on x-rays of the knees. A computed axial tomography scan performed in 2002 shows a calcified ureteral stone, raising the possibility that she may have had hyperparathyroidism.
Single-piece configuration of 8 straight pins in her shroud place her death circa 1824. Her cadaver, remarkably well-preserved because body fat became converted after burial to a waxy hard-soap substance, adipocere, is called the “Soap Lady” in the museum's collection.
Readers are invited to submit equally old or earlier examples of calcium pyrophosphate deposition arthropathy or of other artifacts of rheumatologic interest to the journal.
From the Mutter Museum at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Web site:www.collphyphil.org.
