The Causes of Clubbing - A Poem/Rap

During my GP placement of this year a different GP to the one who normally taught us called us into his consulting room to see a lady with lung cancer and subsequent clubbing. He then suddenly sprung on us the challenge "Name me 17 causes of clubbing!". My colleugue and I fumbled around with some random suggestions, thrown by the acute onset of the task. We were well and truly embarrassed. As a result, I vowed to devise a way to force the causes of clubbing to stay in my head, and this poem (or rap) is the result. Ideally it would have been in the form of a video with a trendy, young rapper delivering it, but I'm right in the middle of exams and time is precious.

Lung Cancer

When we talk about lung cancer, we are generally referring to tumour of the bronchus. 95% of lung cancers are carcinoma of the bronchus 2% are alveolar tumours 3% are benign or less invasive malignant tumours. Death normally occurs after 30 ‘cell doublings’ of malignant cells. In this document I will be referring to bronchial carcinoma unless otherwise stated

Molecular Pathology of Lung Cancer

As with other books in the Molecular Pathology Library Series, Molecular Pathology of Lung Cancer bridges the gap between the molecular specialist and the clinical practitioner, including the surgical pathologist who now has a key role in decisions regarding molecular targeted therapy for lung cancer. Molecular Pathology of Lung Cancer provides the latest information and current insights into the molecular basis for lung cancer, including precursor and preinvasive lesions, molecular diagnosis, molecular targeted therapy, molecular prognosis, molecular radiology and related fields for lung cancer generally and for the specific cell types. As many fundamental concepts about lung cancer have undergone revision in only the past few years, this book will likely be the first to comprehensively cover the new molecular pathology of lung cancer. It provides a foundation in this field for pathologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, thoracic radiologists and their trainees, physician assistants, and nursing staff.
