    I've done that when she was drunk... But she got drunk voluntarily and knew what company she was keeping.

    On a serious note, fuck no. That is definitely a violation of privacy. I bet they even pick and choose what patients they "study". Even if it is done with just medical study in mind, it seems there would be a consent form before the surgery.

    It's outrageous if you ask me. I have a rare condition called "axenfeld's anomoly" and used to have my eyes checked every six months at Wills Eye Hospital. They would always ask if I minded if med students could come in and take a look and I always consented. It started to feel like a freak show, so I just started getting checked by the local eye doctor. Of course, he had to bring his partner in to take a look. lol

    I certainly wouldn't consent to that if I had a freakish cervix. :eek:

    Wow - thanks radioman. The funny thing is I had no idea what was so freakish. The part that really ticked me off was they would always have to "take pictures". I would ask them what happened to the last set of pictures they took and they told me the students would steal them for their portfolios. Maybe that's me!

    BTW - The "condition" has no effect on my vision. It's just weird to look at I guess. Still don't get it.

    Axenfeld's anomaly is a bilateral disorder characterized by a prominent, anteriorly displaced. Schwalbe's line (posterior embryotoxon) and peripheral iris strands which span the anterior chamber angle to attach to Schwalbe's line. Although this particular condition is benign, the two clinical features manifested are observed in other ocular disorders with potentially sight-threatening sequelae. An asymptomatic patient with Axenfeld's anomaly presented to our office for routine eye care. A case report, discussion of the condition and differential diagnoses are presented regarding this ocular anomaly and related disorders.
