The case, which was originally published in the New England Journal of Medicine before Dr. Hsu reenacted it, details how a 19-year-old boy, referred to only as “JC,” quickly developed incomprehensible abdominal pain and nausea after consuming chicken, rice, and lo mein leftovers.

Vomiting, chills, generalized weakness, chest pain, shortness of breath, neck stiffness, and blurry vision followed, per the publication. Soon after, his skin turned purple and his kidneys began failing.
