We recently published “The 10 Worst Medical Sentences Ever Written” slideshow-10 unadultered and unedited sentences culled from articles submitted by physicians to this Web site over the years. That slideshow got a lot of attention, and a number of you appended comments to tell of memorable transcription and autocorrect errors.Here we present 5 especially memorable autocorrect (autoincorrects?), and 1 transcription error that kept an MD up at night . . .Thanks for the comments! We hope you enjoy . . .
