It appears as blue-purple coloration of the distal extremities which usually improves over several hours. Blue melanocytosis is also a common normal variant of skin color. It usually is seen on the posterior surface of the body around the spine and buttocks, but can also be on the upper parts of the extremities. It is a blue-black coloration that shows a normal skin undertone when palpated. This is the second in a short case series of differential diagnoses of colored skin conditions.

What Is In That Ear?
Discussion The external auditory canal mainly derives from the ectoderm however it abuts other structures which arise from mesodermal or endodermal tissues.

The canal is lined with squamous epithelium and has various structures such as sebaceous glands, hair follicles and of course ceruminous glands. It is not surprising that this structure is subject to obstruction given its small size. Cerumen, hair and other cellular debris may become impacted if they are not regularly expelled f...

Dacrocystitis in a Teenager?
Discussion Tears are produced in the lacrimal gland which resides in the upper outer quadrant of the eye. The tears flow across the eye medially and are collected in the superior and inferior puncta which drain into their respective canaliculi, and these drain into a common canaliculus. Tears then pass through the valve of Rosenmuler into the lacrimal sac where they are collected. Tears then pass through the nasolacrimal duct, through the distal valve of Hasner and into the nasal cavity. Vascular connections are extensive in this anatomic area and veins do not have valves. Therefore infections can spread easily through dir...

Multiple lesions are characteristic of chronic liver disease. They can disappear over time (especially pregnancy related ones) but may not. The cause of these vascular lesions is unknown.
