Case Report

First reported by Stringer [1], Pete Throb Figure 1, a midteen from Oink Town, UK, presented with what we now know to be the world’s largest pimple (acne vulgaris). While flareups were normally associated with the nose, other parts of the body, most notably the buttocks, were also reported [2]. Pete’s clinical journey, including several unsuccessful treatment attempts [3-5], were regularly reported in the literature, before ceasing abruptly on June 3rd, 1989 [6], after which point Pete’s case appeared to fall out of favor. However, following an extensive investigation, I am happy to report that Pete did in fact overcame his acne. Although not explicitly referenced, Stringer [7] depicts Pete, in his twenties, free of acne and working as a street performer. Furthermore, in a world exclusive, I can confirm that Pete has since gone on to be one of the world’s leading experts in the study of Periodicum pradatorius [8].
