Since identical twins occur as a result of the division of one egg, they have the same genetic structure. Therefore, their phenotypes and sex are also always the same. However, due to the effect of environmental factors, some of the characteristics of twins living in different regions appear to develop differently. In our case of 17-year-old maternal twins, we emphasized that nasal pathologies carried a genetic background in terms of their similarity in septum deviation and external nasal deformity, which were determined to have occurred without a history of trauma...

We describe a case of intramuscular vascular malformation with extensive ossification within the posterior compartment muscles of leg which grossly mimicked long bone leading to equinus deformity of foot. Phleboliths and calcifications are characteristic of vascular malformations, while massive ossification is rare. To our knowledge, no extensive ossified vascular malformation within the leg muscle has been reported. Intramuscular vascular lesions occur with an incidence of 0.8%, most frequent in upper and lower extremities...

Traumatic injuries of ear range from simple lacerations to complex avulsions and crush injuries. The complicating factors involved are cartilage involvement, poor vascularity of the region and need for high cosmetic satisfaction. Various techniques have been described for reconstruction of earlobe after traumatic injuries. Here, we describe the reconstruction of a partially avulsed pinna using the versatile Limberg flap with superior cosmetic outcomes. This is probably the first case to be described in literature to utilizing the Limberg flap for reconstruction of a traumatic avulsion of pinna...
