Make the Diagnosis: IV Heroin User with Neck Pain
Source: MedPage Today Endocrinology [2014.09.23]
(MedPage Today) -- Case Study: A forty-two-year-old man with a history of intravenous heroin use and hepatitis C presented with nuchal pain that had become worse and begun radiating after a low-energy fall without direct trauma to the cervical spine or skull. Physical examination revealed right torticollis with limited motion to the right, dysphagia, dysarthria, and atrophy of the right side of the tongue. The patient had an elevated C-reactive protein level, but blood and urine cultures were negative, and serology was positive only for hepatitis C. Lateral and anteroposterior radiographs of the cervical spine (shown here) revealed abnormal craniocervical alignment, with a right-sided head tilt and atlantoaxial subluxation. CT of the cervical spine showed lytic destruction of the right atlantooccipital joint. MRI showed altered signal intensity of the clivus, occipital condyles, atlas, axis, and surrounding soft tissues. Magnetic resonance angiography identified occlusion of the right vertebral artery at the C1 level. Surgical treatment was proposed.

Make the Diagnosis: Lifelong Left Foot Pain
Source: MedPage Today Radiology [2014.09.09]
(MedPage Today) -- Case Study: A twenty-seven-year-old man presented with lifelong left foot pain that had begun as a ?blood blister? on the plantar aspect of the second metatarsal head at the age of one year. The lesion had originally been diagnosed as a benign ?birthmark? that would spontaneously regress, but over the years it had become progressively painful. Multiple conventional wart treatments had failed to improve symptoms or eliminate the lesion. The pain had increased during the months prior to presentation. Physical examination revealed a tender lesion under the left second metatarsal head composed of petechiae or punctate lesions, surrounded by a callus measuring 2 × 2 cm (shown here). Radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a 15 × 19 × 24-mm lobular lesion with extension into the subcutaneous tissue. Surgeons removed the entire mass. After two weeks of non-weight-bearing in a walking boot, the patient was able to wear his normal footwear and begin weight-bearing. Histopathology of the specimen revealed subcutaneous portions that contained shaggy, lobulated, yellow adipose tissue streaked with gray. Microscopic sections showed hyperkeratosis, papillomatosis, and acanthosis with dilated vascular papillae. What is the diagnosis?
