Müller Rice Syndrome? Did I hear that right?

Hoblip’s medical corner: Müller-Weiss syndrome vs Muller Rice Syndrome

Once again Goerge has asked (pestered) me into coming up with a bit of medical trivia and then added his own whimsical little take on it. I tell you, if he didn’t have claws and  a bite which would give a raging hippo a run for its money, I’d give him a good finger-wagging. No euphemism intended. So here we are, another obscure gem from the medical archive.

Osteochondrose, Typ Müller-Weiss (German), Aseptische os naviculare pedis malacia, Typ Müller-Weiss (German).
