A mzungu family medicine resident from California was working here for a month, and he rotated through all the wards. On the pediatric ward, he saw a child with the following lab results. (Keep in mind, this patient is alive.)

Hemoglobin 1.2!
I didn't know that was consistent with life, but apparently in Uganda, it is. Go figure.
