CASE REPORTS

Cardiac Arrhythmia in a Professional Football Player
Was Ephedrine to Blame?
Sympathomimetic symptoms in an otherwise healthy patient, such as in this case of a 27-year-old professional football player, may suggest an adverse reaction to a dietary supplement containing ephedra. Awareness of supplement use patterns and possible side effects in active patients may help physicians intervene before catastrophic events occur.
Charles N. Krome, DO; Andrew M. Tucker, MD

Facial Trauma in a Softball Player
When blowout fractures of the eye orbit occur from sports trauma, as in the case of a softball player, having a high index of suspicion during the physical exam and when examining x-rays can ensure that more severe underlying injuries, such as ocular globe or nerve damage, are quickly identified and referred to appropriate specialists.
Brian L. Patterson, MD, MS; Thomas Anan, MD
