The “Christmas tree” orientation of scaling lesions along the skin tension (Langer) lines in pityriasis rosea is well known. This pattern is best appreciated on complete examination of the trunk, in which the eruption follows the long axis of the V-shaped lines of the upper chest and back, emanating around the axillae, and running transversely along the abdominal wall and lower back. Secondary syphilis has a similar presentation. When patients present with asymptomatic, larger, nonscaling patches along Langer lines, another condition deserves diagnostic consideration.

This study demonstrates the effect of only simultaneous infection by B. burgdorferi and B. microti on each pathogen, immune response and on disease manifestations with respect to infection by the spirochete and the parasite. In our future studies, we will examine the overall effects of sequential infection by these pathogens on host immune responses and disease outcomes.

AbstractExogenous anabolic androgen steroid use is associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes. A 53 ‐year‐old bodybuilder presented with 3 months of exertional dyspnoea. Physical examination showed tachycardia and pan‐systolic murmur; an echocardiogram showed a left ventricular ejection fraction (EF) of 15%. Evaluations included normal coronary angiogram, iron panel and thyroid studies, a n egative viral panel (human immunodeficiency virus, Lyme disease, and hepatitis), and urine toxicology. He admitted to intramuscular anabolic steroid use; his testosterone level was 30 160.0 ng/dL (normal 280&nd...
