    I did a little research after I gave my answer and read that high levels of acetone in the body may be a cause of HSC (wikipedia). Interesting. Scary!

    We had a case locally that we heard about in the medical college in the 1990s.

    No I don't know why either or what anyone may think causes it. I just don't know what to think! I do believe it has happened though and I don't think anyone is denying it does.

    There are some online pictures that look authentic but sort of gross!
