Your NEJM Group Today: Germ Fears, Don't Eat Slugs, Ohio Internist

By the Editors

NEJM Group offers so many valuable resources for practicing clinicians. Here's what we chose for you today:

NEJM Clinical Practice Center: A 19-year-old man is brought to his primary physician by his father, who explains that his son washes his hands 100 times a day and has a fear of germs that has left him isolated in his bedroom, unable to eat, and wishing he were dead. How should this patient be evaluated and treated?

HIV and ID Observations: Dietary advice from your friendly ID doc — don't eat garden slugs.

NEJM CareerCenter: An internist is needed to join six other IMs at an Ohio practice.
