Happy Holidays

This is sort of a fun case that's taken from the blog A Cartoon Guide to Being a Doctor. Hope you all have happy holidays! I think there will be no case this Thursday, but I'll plan for a case a week from today.

Challenge: How many diseases can you name?

Hey Craig, here are some of my findings:

1.Portwine: A port-wine stain or naevus flammeus and or Hemangioma

2.Nutmeg liver: congestive hepathopathy and chronic passive congestive of the liver.

3.Coffee ground hemesis: is a classical sign of upper GI bleeding.

4.Red currant jelly: Klebsiella pneumonia, a form of bacterial pneumonia associated with klebsiella pneumoniae.

5.Strawberry tongue:
a) Kawasaki disease, Toxic shock syndrome and scarlet fever. b)It may mimic glossitis or B12 deficiency

6.Chocolate cyst: Endometrioma, endometrioid cyst, endometrial cyst, or chocolate cyst of ovary is a condition related to Endometriosis.

7.Caseous necrosis: is associated with TB. It can also be caused by Syphilis and certain fungi. A similar appearance can be associated with histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and coccidioidomycosis.

8.Sugar coated liver: Hyaloserositis.

9.Omon skin: Familial systematized epidermal nevus syndrome…(Not really sure).

10.Grape clusters: Staphylococcus Aureus Infections.

I must admit the last ones aren't pretty easy... lol.
Nice job craig! Merry Xmas and Happy new year 2011!
