Immunosuppression Doctor: The faculty is very grateful to Lorenzo for doing this.
(Door opens, indistinct chatter) Immunosuppression Doctor: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Lorenzo Odone; whom I've spoken to you about. Now; young Mr. Odone, you need to come with me. You're getting so big! I'm gonna put you up here so we can all see you, okay? Attaboy. Ten weeks after diagnosis, we observe hemianopia. The pupillary light reflexes are still intact and, as yet, there is no optic atrophy. However, there is evidence of early occipital lobe involvement."
Lorenzo Odone: Why are all these people here?
Immunosuppression Doctor: I beg your pardon, Lorenzo?
Lorenzo Odone: Why are all these people here?
Doctor: He asks why all these people are here.
Immunosuppression Doctor: Well, they're all doctors and they want to learn how to help other boys in the future.
Lorenzo Odone: Other boys with the boo-boo?
Michaela Odone: Yes, Darling.
Lorenzo Odone: Mm-hm.
Immunosuppression Doctor: Thank you, Lorenzo. Now in the scanning speech, we look for both ends of the pathology: centrally for the dysphasia and peripherally for the dysarthria. Now, Lorenzo, would you walk for me please? Attaboy. That's right, hold my hands. That's right. Two months ago, there was simply motor lag. Now, note the characteristic gait, it's due mostly to hyperreflexia but exacerbated by the encroaching paresis. You're doing very well, Lorenzo! Keep coming!
Lorenzo Odone: Only if you stop talking like that.
