dc.description.abstractBrock v. Wright, 315 F.3d 158 (2d Cir. 2003). In December 1998, Vincent Brock, a New York state prisoner, suffered a serious knife injury to his face. While the wound healed, the scar formed a keloid, which brought daily "throbbing, burning pain.", This pain could be "more fairly characterized as. . . chronic" than extreme, but it nonetheless interrupted such common and necessary activities as brushing teeth, eating, yawning, and smiling. Because of his inability to clean his teeth properly, Mr. Brock also suffered significant tooth decay. Although he informed medical staff on "numerous occasions" of his problems, and several doctors recommended steroid injections or other treatment, Mr. Brock never received the advised care.
