BACKGROUND: The subtype of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) influences the choice of treatment. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging tool and recent development of angiographic version of OCT has extended the application of OCT to image the cutaneous microvasculature (so called dynamic OCT, D-OCT). This study explores D-OCT's ability to differentiate the common BCC subtypes by microvascular and structural imaging. METHODS: 81 patients with 98 BCC lesions, consisting of three subtypes: 27 superficial BCC (sBCC), 55 nodular BCC (nBCC) and 16 infiltrative BCC (iBCC), were D-OCT scanned at three European dermatology centres...

Multifocal serpiginoid choroiditis is an infectious variety of serpiginous choroiditis. The disease is characterized by infectious etiology and overlapping clinical features in an intermediary form of acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy and serpiginous choroiditis. In a 33-year-old patient, bilateral multiple placoid partially confluent chorioretinal lesions were diagnosed after a febrile flu-like episode. On the right eye, there was a progressive decrease in visual acuity. Later, the lesions had a prolonged progressive devastating clinical course and widespread distribution of placoid lesions, and took the form of serpiginoid choroiditis...

Hookworm-related cutaneous larva migrans (HRCLM) is caused by the penetration and migration in the epidermis of larvae of Ancylostoma braziliense and Ancylostoma caninum. It is characterized by slightly raised and erythematous tracks, located especially on the feet. These tracks may be single or multiple, serpiginous or linear, ramified and intertwined, accompanied by pruritus. Atypical clinical presentations of HRCLM are currently more frequent than in the past. We present six patients with bullous HRCLM and discuss the possible pathogenetic factors...

OBJECTIVE: Symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), which leads to severe socioeconomic consequences and places a heavy burden on global healthcare system, is a relatively frequent spine disorder. Redundant nerve roots (RNRs) are a relatively common finding in which slender, serpiginous, or tortuous nerve roots are found in the subarachnoid space of the lumbar spine. Previous studies that evaluated the prognostic assessment of RNRs in patients with symptomatic LSS are composed of doubtful results...

Corticosteroids have been a mainstay of therapy for the treatment of many inflammatory diseases for well over 50 years. Cutaneous side effects of local corticosteroid therapy include striae, thinning of the skin, hypopigmentation, and atrophy, which are well known complications of this treatment modality.Herein, we present an unusual cutaneous adverse side effect rarely seen in intra-articular corticosteroid injections.

Detection of right heart thrombi (RHT) in the context of pulmonary thromboembolism (PE) is uncommon (4-18%) and increases the risk of mortality beyond the presence of PE alone. Type A thrombi are serpiginous and highly mobile and are thought to be originated from large veins and captured in-transit within the right heart. Optimal management of RHT is still uncertain. A 79-year-old woman, with a history of recent total hysterectomy with adnexectomy and a Wells procedure, presented to the emergency department following an episode of syncope...
