What smells like a dead mouse?

  1. 1 A patient comes into the ER with c/o a foul smell to her vaginal area. Her actual statement was "It smells like a dead mouse every time I pull down my pants". Of course the physician comes in to do an internal exam after asking the patient a few questions. Well after what seemed like forever due to the smell in the exam room the physician looks up and states "Well I have found something and it does have a tail but I don't think its a mouse." The physician then removes a tampon that appears to have been inserted months ago. The smell seemed to linger in the ER the rest of the shift. That is one experience or smell that I will never forget.
