Ribeiro JP, Marcelino P, Marum S, Fernandes AP, Grilo A. Case report: purple urine bag syndrome. Crit Care. 2004 Jun;8(3):R137. Epub 2004 Mar 31.
I’m starting a petition to change it’s name to purple urine bag efflorescing syndrome.
from your link:
Considering the known etiologic and physiopathologic mechanisms of PUBS, it is surprising how rarely this situation is observed and/or reported.
A rose by any other name…. Whatever name you end up with I think this is one syndrome people are going to want to avoid as polite dinner conversation! LOL!
