Giant basal cell carcinoma associated with vitiligo
We report a woman with two giant basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) on the back, the largest with 12  cm in diameter, inside a vitiligo plaque. They were metatypical subtype BCC associated with a nodular subtype area. Thinking of BCC in vitiligo lesion is extremely important. Giant BCC and vitiligo are rare association.

Pulmonary artery ‐focused contrast echocardiography with supplemental oxygen(PCESO) for echocardiographic diagnosis of anomalous origin of left coronary artery from pulmonary artery: Novel use of an old technique
Pulmonary artery ‐focused agitated saline contrast echocardiography unveils tricky cases of ALCAPA by the entry of microbubbles into the left coronary artery (LCA) during systole and retrograde flow from LCA into the main pulmonary artery during diastole. Associated pulmonary hypertension, if present, augments the former flow and supplemental oxygen increases the latter. AbstractPulmonary artery ‐focused agitated saline contrast echocardiography unveils tricky cases of ALCAPA by the entry of microbubbles into the left coronary artery (LCA) during systole and retrograde flow from LCA into the main pulmonary artery durin...

Pure erythroid leukemia, presenting with pancytopenia. Images in Hematology
Pure erythroid leukemia is an aggressive form of acute leukemia, presenting with pancytopenia. It is defined as a neoplasm of erythroid lineage without a significant myeloblastic component, representing>80% of marrow, with 30% or more proerythroblasts. The disease has a rapid clinical course with median survival of only 3  months. AbstractPure erythroid leukemia is an aggressive form of acute leukemia, presenting with pancytopenia.

Crescentic IgA nephropathy along with simultaneous cellular and antibody ‐mediated rejection in a kidney transplant leading to rapid allograft failure
Crescentic IgA Nephropathy in a renal transplant can lead to rapid loss of graft function despite treatment. Concurrent treatment ‐resistant acute cellular and antibody‐mediated rejection make the prognosis even worse.
