When the PPD test on Charles shows positive Mantoux reaction he is brought pills by Cameron. He tosses them one by one naming them, refusing to take them. One of them is streptomycin. Streptomycin is used sometimes for TB but it belongs to the aminoglycoside group of antibiotics which are highly ionized and thus not absorbed enterically. Thus streptomycin is always given as IV or IM injection rather than orally as pills.

Nesidioblastoma is a focal, non-malignant hypertrophy of pancreatic beta-cells, distinct from both an insulinoma (malignant tumour of pancreatic beta-cells), and nesidioblastosis (diffuse, non-malignant hypertrophy of pancreatic beta-cells). By this definition, the first case report of a nesidioblastoma in the adult literature occurred in 2010 (http://www.humanpathol.com/article/S0046-8177(09)00330-X/abstract), some five years after this episode was aired (at the time the existence of this condition was merely theorised).
