There are a number of ‘medical’ terms for patients believed to be somewhat intellectually challenged. Some are well known like LOBNH (Lights On But Nobody Home); some less so like CNS-QNS (Central Nervous System - Quantity Not Sufficient). But one reader of this blog recently referred me to the delightful term "pumpkin positive". This refers to the implication that a penlight shone into the patient's mouth would encounter a brain so small that the whole head would light up. That had to go on this blog!
