A clinic in Malaysia has shot to fame after accidentally diagnosing a student with “chicken chop”.

An image of the medical certificate, which was given to a secondary school student suffering from the chicken pox, has been circulating on WhatsApp, causing much amusement – and embarrassment for the clinic in Sungai Buloh.

Chicken chop, for the uninitiated, is a popular Malaysian-Western dish similar to a schnitzel. We guess it must have been lunch time in the clinic, as the individual who filled out the form clearly had food on their mind!

The clinic has apologised for the mistake, telling news outlet The Rakyat Post that it was “an inadvertent error” from which they would like to move on. Adding that the mistake was made by clinic staff, not the doctor, the representative told the news outlet that the clinic had been inundated with calls since the picture of the medical certificate began circulating on social media this week.

The only question now is, how can we too get a diagnosis of chicken chop? And does it come with a KFC foldable trolley bag?
