What is in the Differential Diagnosis for Red, Orange or Yellow Skin Conditions?
Discussion This is the first in a short case series of differential diagnoses of colored skin conditions. A differential diagnosis by distribution and common pattern can be found here. For green, blue and violet conditions, a review can be found here. For black and white conditions, a review can be found here. For brown and grey conditions, a review can be found here. Note that any color can be a normal variant for an individual or is physiologic for a given state. The skin is the largest organ of the body. It can be easily examined but for many clinicians continues to be difficult to describe what they are seeing. Analo...

Polyuria, Polydipsia and Possible Diabetes Insipidus?
Discussion The body is smart. It has mechanisms for maintaining balances within the body in a closely controlled manner but allows for a variety of states. This is very true for fluid balance in the body which is highly controlled between almost all of the major body organ systems. When fluid is low, the sensor sends signals for us to drink, and conserves fluid until we can. When the fluid is high, the kidneys excrete the excess and sends signals not to drink. Usually it works very well. While there are many pathological states that can cause polyuria and/or polydipsia, the most common reason is excessive fluid intake beca...

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...
