A 32-year-old woman presents with recurrent episodes of lip swelling associated with massive, painful blister formation and crusting. What is this?

This asymptomatic, hyperpigmented lesion was first noted 5 years earlier on the left upper back of a 16-year-old boy. A nevus? Cafe au lait spot?

Here: a gallery of 5 unusual clinical cases and images from our partner Figure 1.

These 2 patients presented with a swollen hand and rapidly proximally progressive edema secondary to a bite. What creature did the biting?

This radiograph from a 53-year-old woman revealed esophageal stricture with proximal dilatation in addition to pneumoperitoneum. Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis (PCI) was diagnosed.

Reactions range from mild and localized to life-threatening and even fatal. All bites must be treated as true emergencies.

A 60-year-old homosexual man presented to the outpatient clinic with a 3-day history of facial rash associated with pain. The rash did not affect any other part of the body. He was not currently taking any immunosuppressive medication. What’s your diagnosis?
