Poynter's sign in practice
Enlargement is graded with a bell (end) shaped normal distribution curve - the Soysa scale. Through stages 1-5, with stage 3 being considered of normal/acceptable size. Stages 1 and 5 are attributed to extreme manifestations of underlying pathology/low pitch.
Investigation and diagnosis is by means of a trou-down, and diagnosis is confirmed by means of illicited transillumination with the laser-Poynter (head torch with multiple light modes).
Treatment is 8x25ml doses of jager (stat) over a one minute period. Relapse is often noted on long bus journeys or in shared accomodation.
