Figure 1 Abdomino-pelvic computed tomography without contrast. A: Left kidney stone. Sagittal section of abdomino-pelvic computerized tomograph without IV contrast (not administered due to elevated creatinine) performed on admission in patient reported as case-1 demonstrates a 5.5-mm-wide, round, radiopaque, kidney stone in left ureter (arrow), just rostral to the level of left iliac crest; B: Left-sided hydroureteronephrosis. Axial section of the same abdomino-pelvic CT at level of mid-kidneys shows that this stone has caused left ureteral obstruction, left-sided hydroureter, and left-sided hydronephrosis. Note the severely dilated left renal calyx (vertical arrow) and compressed left renal parenchyma (horizontal arrow), as compared to normal-sized right calyx and right kidney; C: Moderately severe diffuse prostatomegaly. Axial section of the same abdomino-pelvic CT at level of rectum reveals moderately severe diffuse prostatomegaly, as demonstrated by the prostate compressing the bladder [arrow shows upper (ventral) margin of prostrate compressing bladder].

Figure 2 Algorithm. Algorithm summarizing steps to recognize and manage bizarre performance of gastrointestinal endoscopy by an impaired gastroenterologist-endoscopist. The first three steps relate to syndrome recognition. The next two steps describe recommended actions by Chief of Gastroenterology. The last step relates to recommended patient work-up in emergency room. See Discussion section and Supplementary Table 1 for fuller discussion of syndrome recognition and management.
