Consults- Memorable/Dismal/Ridiculous/Unique
I'll get this started with an interesting one.  It's been a while, so I don't recall the specifics but here's the gist:

Patient was on the medicine service and had a pulmonary empyema.  IR was consulted and placed a pigtail catheter.  We get called days later for paraparesis.  The patient can't get an MRI, but ct-myelogram reveals the pigtail is somehow entering through a throracic foramen and traverses the spinal cord.
