Medical textbook slammed for describing Cushing's patient as a 'monster'

The offensive language is in the fifth edition of Dr Pestana's Surgery Notes which was published earlier this year

The eyebrow-raising descriptions are contained in the fifth edition of Dr Pestana’s Surgery Notes, published this year.
