The concept of animal therapy to promote overall wellness is not new, and research has shown that animal interactions can improve the mood of patients with cancer.

More cancer treatment centers are embracing this concept and now provide animal therapy through dog visits as a treatment supplement with the hope of uplifting patients’ spirits during a tumultuous time in their lives.

Daily life can be frustrating. Everybody, at least once, has had problems with their Internet connection. You’re in front of your computer, in a hurry to check your email account or PubMed research, and the Internet connection does not work.

Frustration and anger usually interfere with straight thinking, but surely you have noticed a little old-style animal made of gray pixels and might have wondered what is the meaning of that small dinosaur in the upper right of the screen of one of the most used browsers in the world: Google Chrome.

I took Latin with Mrs. Wheeler many years ago, but I still remember that a noun ending in an “a” is often a feminine noun, and its plural typically ends in an “ae”.

So I was confused when I first learned about corneal guttata: Where did this “ata” suffix come from? When we see a patient with characteristic bumps on the endothelium (neutered, singular form), which term should we put on the chart: corneal gutta, guttata or guttae?
