This I Believe #23
...that if I were a doctor, every time one of my colleagues suggested a patient might have lupus, I would say, "Whoa! Slow down, Dr. Van Helsing—those symptoms are certainly unusual, but I hardly think the patient is a werewolf!"
And it would never get old.
(This might be why I'm not a doctor.)

My response would be to pedantically insist that the patient has lupum.
The Latin for "werewolf" is versipellis (lit. skin-turner). Wonderful word, got it from Petronius when I was about 14.
