Title: Snapshot quiz 14/14

  • Legend:

    Bullosis diabeticorum is a rare skin manifestation of diabetes mellitus. Historically, the lesions were termed ‘phlyctenar’, owing to their resemblance to blisters caused by burns. Tense painless blisters appear rapidly, most commonly over the feet. The causes of these bullae are unclear, with multiple pathophysiologies hypothesized. The condition should be managed by a multidisciplinary diabetic foot care team. Treatment includes early surgical debridement and topical negative pressure wound therapy. This allows better management of the high levels of wound exudate and therefore helps restore plantar skin integrity.

  • Legend:

    This patient was admitted because of a tender irreducible perineal mass. He had an abdominoperineal resection for rectal cancer 9 years previously. The pelvic floor was reconstructed with a gluteal muscle flap. CT shows herniation of small bowel below and behind the sacral bone. At laparotomy, 150 cm of gangrenous small bowel was resected with primary anastomosis. The perineal defect was closed with a biological mesh (porcine collagen). Posterior perineal hernias are only seen as a surgical complication.

Title: Snapshot quiz 14/12

  • Authors: Ma F

    This woman had polyacrylamide injection breast augmentation 5 years previously. Ultrasound examination revealed large areas of liquid under the breast. At operation, around 200 ml yellowish gel-like substance was squeezed and sucked out from each breast through an areolar incision. Polyacrylamide had been used legally as a human soft tissue filler in China from December 1997 to April 2006, affecting more than 300 000 people. The Chinese government banned the use of polyacrylamide for this application in 2006.
