This patient presented on the third pre-eruptive day with “Koplik spots” indicative of the beginning onset of measles.
In the prodromal or beginning stages, one of the signs of the onset of measles is the eruption of “Koplik spots” on the mucosa of the cheeks and tongue, which appear as irregularly-shaped, bright red spots often with a bluish-white central dot.

REVERSE-NAMASKAR: A NEW SIGN IN EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME: A FAMILY PEDIGREE STUDY OF FOUR GENERATIONS
Abstract: Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a rare group of inheritable connective tissue disorder of defective collagen. Skin, joints and blood vessels are most commonly affected. Clinical signs such as Gorlin sign and Metenier sign have been described in this syndrome. This study reports another new clinical sign called 'Reverse-Namaskar' sign as an important clinical finding in EDS, based on the family pedigree study of the proband.

homo-medicus:

Specimens of urine and specimens from the vagina were cultured and grew Staphylococcus aureus. The patient developed desquamation of her hands. A diagnosis of staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome was made. Desquamation is characteristic of staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome, typically occurring 1 to 2 weeks after the onset of illness and typically involving the palms and soles. Staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome is associated with a wide variety of clinical settings, such as menstruation, postpartum and postsurgical states, and barrier contraceptive use. With supportive care and the administration of floxacillin, the patient recovered completely.

Perhaps the most enjoyable vaccination video I’ve ever seen. Have you seen a health care provider ever do this? I should add it to my repertoire. 

Dr. Michael Darden was the pediatrician for many of my classmates from high school. I went to a public high school in Montgomery County, Maryland just outside of DC. Even though i am not interested in pediatrics, I still want to know the best way to interact with pediatric patients and their guardians so that I can make their visits less daunting.

I watched this video so many times because everything that you must do for pediatric intramuscular injections is what Dr. Darden does in such a creative and efficient way that the baby doesn’t even get a chance to cry long enough to realize what just happened!

He is amazing!
