  • HUS
    • Schistocytes are fragmented red blood cells, and indicate mechanical damage causing hemolysis. The commonest cause is probably the presence of a mechanical heart valve, particularly when dysfunctional. Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, and Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation are other causes.
  • NORMAL RETINA
  • RP
  • RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA
    • RP is a retinal degeneration, often hereditary, which affects the photoreceptors (rods and cones) which are the light sensing receptors. Usually, but not always, the rod receptors are affected first causing progressive decrease vision during dark hours, that is ‘night blindness’. There is also loss of peripheral vision leading to tunnel vision. As research into the genetics evolve we are learning more about RP as a spectrum of a number of related retinal degenerations some of which are associated with other disabilities like hearing loss. Most cases of RP are chronic and progress very slowly over decades.

  • Retinitis pigmentosa http://www.blindness.org/content.asp?id=45
  • AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION
    • AMD is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in patients over 60 years of age. It is a degenerative disease of the macula which is the central part of the retina and affects the central vision. There are two forms of macular degeneration: Dry AMD, or nonexudative AMD, where yellow white deposits called drusen accumulate in the deep macula with or without atrophy or ‘balding’ of the layers of the retina/macula. This leads to interference in the function of the photoreceptors responsible for processing of light coming into the eye which in turn causes decrease in vision. This dry AMD can progress to a more severe Wet AMD or exudative type of macular degeneration where abnormal choroidal vessels leak fluid, or rupture and bleed causing severe and often permanent central visual loss.
  • BRANCH RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION
    • BRVO is a retinal vascular disease most often related to hypertension, elevated lipids/triglyceride/cholesterol, diabetes, carotid artery disease, cardiac disease, or hematologic (blood) disorders. In BRVO there is an occlusion of a branch retinal vein by a compressing, sclerotic retinal artery. This often leads to hemorrhage (bleeding), edema (swelling), or ischemia (poor circulation) of the retina and macula with resultant visual loss.
  • CRVO
    • CRVO is also a retinal vascular disease but involves occlusion of the main central retinal vein. Vascular, hematologic, and cardiac disease may predispose individuals to develop CRVO which leads to leakage of blood and fluid into the retina. In many cases the resultant poor circulation (ischemia) can lead to abnormal blood vessel formation in the iris (rubeosis) with painful increases in eye pressure (neovascular glaucoma).
  • RETINAL HEMORRHAGE
    • Bleeding or hemorrhage in the retina occurs when the blood vessels in the retina leak or rupture. Common causes include: diabetes, high blood pressure, blood disorders, cardiovascular problems, trauma, or aging.
  • Macular Edema
    • Swelling in the macula (edema) results from fluid build up and thickening within the layers of retinal tissue. Tiny blood vessels which surround the macula are usually responsible for the leakage. Many disorders including diabetes, vein occlusions, uveitis (inflammation), and cataract surgery can cause macular edema. Depending on the cause there are different treatments which may include eye drops, steroid injections, laser treatment, or if vitreoretinal tractional is present vitreous surger

  • coal workers pneumoconiosis
    • This picture shows complicated coal workers pneumoconiosis. There are diffuse, massive light areas that run together in the upper and middle parts of both lungs. These are superimposed on a background of small and poorly distinguishable light areas that are diffuse and located in both lungs. Diseases which may explain these X-ray findings include, but are not limited to: complicated coal workers pneumoconiosis (CWP), silico-tuberculosis, and metastatic lung cancer.

  • Electrical alternans
    • This EKG is characterized by low voltage and electrical alternans. The QRS axis alternates between beats. In this example it is best seen in the chest leads where the QRS points in different directions!
  • Brudzinski’s sign
  • Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythm
    • This EKG shows a slow wide complex tachycardia with intermittent narrow complex beats. The 5 th and 10 th beats are sinus rhythm and close examination of these beats will give you a clue to the cause of the wide complex rhythm. In Leads II and III you can appreciate ST elevation indicating an acute current of injury due to a myocardial infarction. The wide complex beats therefore represent an Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythm or AIVR which is usually seen following reperfusion after an acute infarct.
    • Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythms are ectopic ventricular rhythms at rates between 40 bpm and 100 to 120 bpm. The ventricular origin of this rhythm can be demonstrated by the usual EKG criteria which include AV dissociation, fusion, and capture complexes. In this EKG the 4 th beat represents a fusion complex and the 5 th beath represents a capture beat proving that these beats are ventricular in origin. The incidence of Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythms following acute MI is reported to be between 8 and 36 percent. This rhythm can also be seen in patients with primarily myocardial disease, hypertensive, rheumatic, and congenital heart disease. It can also be caused by digoxin
  • Torsades de pointes
  • torsades de pointes
    • This ECG is a classic example of torsades de pointes, which is French for &quot;twisting of the points.&quot; Torsades is a form of ventricular tachycardia that can most often be due to medications. The QRS complexes during this rhythm tend to show a series of  &quot;points up&quot; followed by &quot;points down&quot; often with a narrow waist between. Recognition and reporting of this arrhythmia in association with terfenadine, astemizole (Hismanal), cisapride (Propulsid), grepafloxacin (Raxar), and mibefradil (Posicor) ultimately led to the removal of these medications from the market .
  • Facies mitralis
    •   Facies mitralis is associated with prominent livid colour of the cheeks and acral cyanosis in the face (mitral stenosis)
  • Malar fllush
    • It is commonly seen in children with high fever, polycythaemia and severe mitral stenosis. Malar fllush with high fever is often seen in typhoid, pneumonia and pyelonephritis.
  • RV hypertrophy
  • Right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH)
    • Note the qR pattern in the right precordial leads. This suggests right ventricular pressures greater than left ventricular pressures. The persistent S waves in lateral precordial leads and the right axis deviation are other findings in RVH.
  • Right Ventricular Myocardial Infarction
    • This EKG shows an Acute Inferior Myocardial Infarction which is often associated with a Right Ventricular Myocardial Infarction . If there is ST elevation in V1 and V2, the RV infarction should be considered.
  • Acute right ventricular infarction
    • Acute right ventricular infarction with acute inferior wall infarction. Note the ST elevation in the right precordial leads, as well as in leads II, III, and aVF, with reciprocal change in I and aVL. ST elevation in lead III, greater than in lead II, and right precordial ST elevation are consistent with proximal to middle occlusion of the right coronary artery. The combination of ST elevation in conventional lead V 1 (lead V 2 R here) and ST depression in lead V 2 (lead V 1 R here) has also been reported with acute right ventricular ischemia or infarction.

  • Acute pericarditis: Stage 1 ECG
    • J points, except aVR and V1, are elevated. T waves are essentially normal. PR segments, except aVR and V1, are depressed. PR deviations are commonly absent in one limb lead (here, aVL).
  • ACUTE PERICARDITIS
    • 1. &quot;Current of Injury&quot; pattern: thought to be due to pressure and superficial inflammation of the pericardium
    • 2. PR segment changes: PR segment depression (82% of patients)
    • Differentiation from MI: ST segment elevation is typically less pronounced (equal to or less than0.05mV) and the ventricular surface area is greater (more leads involved)
  • PERICARDITIS
    • Note the diffuse ST elevations and PR depressions. The PR depressions are most evidenton this EKG in II and aVF.
    • 
 Pericarditis typically demonstrates PR depressions on EKG and ST elevations globally.
  • echocardiography
    • There are two major types of echocardiography: M-mode (below left) and two-dimensional (below right) (Fig. 2, [3])
  • echocardiography
    • In the M-mode a single beam of ultrasound is used (Fig. 3, [3]) The reflections of the signal are recorded and displayed as monochronic dots. The location is proportional to the distance from the reflective region, and the intensity contains the information about acoustic impedance of the region. The M-mode has excellent axial resolution, but it carries essentially one-dimensional information. The two-dimensional echocardiograph typically uses a multielement transducer, which generates a single ultrasonic beam with changing direction. This technique allows one to create a two-dimensional image, which has good lateral resolution but lacks accuracy in the axial dimension.
  • echocrdiography
    • Examples of two-dimensional still frames obtained from hand-held echocardiographic examinations of four distinct patients. (A) Parasternal long axis view obtained from a patient admitted for septic shock secondary to a severe aortic endocarditis (arrows indicate vegetations) associated with a massive regurgitation and dilated left ventricle. (B) Parasternal short axis view obtained from a patient with an acute respiratory distress syndrome and associated cor pulmonale. The right ventricle was markedly enlarged and the ventricular septum bulged towards the left ventricular cavity at end systole, due to severe pulmonary hypertension (arrow). (C) Apical four-chamber view obtained from a ventilated patient with refractory hypoxemia. The contrast study (intravenous injection of saline microbubbles) revealed a large interatrial right-to-left shunt through a patent foramen ovale, which participated to persistent hypoxemia: left cardiac cavities were filled up by the microbubbles within two cardiac cycles. (D) Subcostal view obtained from a patient presenting with shock and pulsus paradoxus. A mild pericardial effusion responsible for prolonged right atrial collapse during the cardiac cycle (arrow) was consistent with a tamponade, and the patient underwent successful pericardotomy.

  • Long QT Syndrome
    • The QT interval in this tracing is very long, measuring 640 m/sec. This long QT interval is different from others in that it is due to a prolonged ST segment with delayed onset of the T waves. It reflects (choose 1 from below):
  • Dextrocardia
    • This EKG shows marked right axis deviation and loss of voltage across the precordium. There are also inverted p waves in leads I and aVL. The differential for inverted p waves in lead I and aVL is Dextrocardia or Reversed Arm Leads. Since there is loss of voltage across the precordium this is Dextrocardia .

  • Klinefelter Syndrome (47 XXY Syndrome; KS)
  • 47,XXY Klinefelter's syndrome
    • 47,XXY Klinefelter's syndrome in 17-year-old identical twins. At age 15, gynecomastia was noted. The twins had a eunuchoid habitus and poorly developed male secondary sexual characteristics. Both were 187 cm in height; arm spans were 187 cm and 189.5 cm; the voices were high-pitched; the testes measured 1.8 × 1.5 cm; penis length was 7.5 cm. Gynecomastia and signs of androgen deficiency were more evident in the twin on the left. Urinary gonadotropins, greater than 50 mU/24 hours. The testes exhibited extensive tubular fibrosis, small dysgenetic tubules, and clumping or pseudoadenomatous formation of Leydig cells; germ cells were rare. The microscopic appearance was typical of seminiferous tubule dysgenesis.

Serial studies are shown before and after antibiotic therapy (adapted in part from reference 7). (A-C) Initial scans, pre-treatment. Edematous lesions appear centrally hypodense on CT (A) and centrally isointense to hypointense on T1WI (B) and hypointense to markedly hyperintense on T2WI (C), exerting moderate to severe mass effect. Severe surrounding edema is noted which is much larger than the size of the lesions. On T2WI (C), a central and concentric hypointense core gives a &quot;target&quot; appearance to the lesions. A third subtle lesion is apparent on T2WI in the thalamus (C). Note the relatively poor sensitivity of CT vs. MRI for the lesions in the left hemisphere. After contrast administration on both CT (A) and MRI (B), avid ringlike and nodular enhancement is noted. (D) T2WI shows marked improvement in each of the lesions 2 weeks after the completion of anti-toxoplasmosis medical therapy.

Postcontrast T1WI (A) FLAIR (B) and T2WI (Figure 4) show a solitary large ring-enhancing lesion with mild mass effect and moderate vasogenic edema. The hypointensity of the lesion on T2WI (Figure 4) is characteristic of lymphoma. Note that the mass effect and edema is less than expected given the size of the lesion, as is typical for primary brain lymphoma while much more edema and mass effect vs. lesion size is expected in toxoplasmosis (Figure 2). C-D. 30 year-old man with AIDS. Postcontrast T1WI (C) and T2WI (D) show left temporal lobe vasogenic edema, related to a temporal lobe mass lesion (not shown). There are also bilateral lesions in the caudate nuclei on T2WI (D), with periventricular and ependymal extension of enhancement on the right (C). The ependymal spread is characteristic of primary CNS lymphoma.

A poorly defined, lucent or absent inferior posterior rib margin is an unreliable finding as ribs are normally thin here to accommodate the intercostal neurovascular bundle. However, an absent or abnormal superior posterior rib margin is usually suspicious. Loss of the ANTERIOR end of a rib is, however, a fairly common normal finding (see this case for an example).

  • Pneumonia right middle lobe - X-ray
  • Right middle lobe pneumonia
    • PA and lateral views show increased opacity obscuring the right heart border on the PA view and anteriorly over the heart on the lateral view. The right middle lobe is the part of the long adjacent to the right heart border. A silhouette sign involving the right heart border indicates a process in the right middle lobe, in this case a pneumonia.
  • Right middle lobe pneumonia
    • This 25 year-old female patient’s PA chest xray shows evidence of right middle lobe consolidation. There is an opacity in the right mid-to-lower zone medially, which silhouettes the right heart border. The opacity has a straight upper border suggesting margination along the horizontal fissure. There is little evidence of volume loss. The lateral film confirms right middle lobe consolidation.
    • The most common cause of lobar consolidation is Streptococcal pneumonia. Other causes include infection with other bacteria (eg Klebsiella, TB); bronchial obstruction with postobstructive pneumonia; or consolidation associated with neoplasm, particularly lymphoma or bronchioloalveolar carcinoma.
  • Right middle lobe pneumonia
    • Right middle lobe pneumonia. On the posteroanterior chest x-ray (A), the alveolar infiltrate obscures the right cardiac border. This silhouette sign means that the pathologic process is up against the right cardiac border and therefore must be in the middle lobe. This is confirmed on the lateral view (B) by noting that the consolidation is anterior to the major fissure but below the minor fissure.
  • chest x-ray with right middle lobe pneumonia.

Note the remaining right lung is blacker than the opposite side. In addition the hilum is pulled up. There is a mass arising from the right hilum (arrow); this is the obstructing bronchial carcinoma which is causing the collapse
  • Right middle lobe collapse
    • Antero-posterior chest radiograph. Right middle lobe collapse. The right middle lobe lies adjacent to the right heart border, so the right heart outline is lost.
  • Left lower lobe collapse.
    • Antero-posterior chest radiograph. Left lower lobe collapse. The lower lobes collapse posteriorly and inferiorly so that the contour of the hemidiaphragm is lost. The collapsed left lower lobe may form a &quot;sail&quot; shape behind the heart border on the Antero-posterior film (arrow)
  • Left upper lobe collapse
  • Right middle lobe collapse
  • L lower lobe collapse
  • Right upper lobe collapse
    • When the right upper lobe collapses there is increased opacity in the right upper zone, which is delineated inferiorly by the horizontal fissure. As collapse progresses the fissure moves and bows upwards. Right upper lobe collapse is less visible on the lateral film as the upper zone is often partly obscured by the overlying shoulders and upper arms
  • Right upper lobe collapse
    • Right upper lobe collapse is less visible on the lateral film as the upper zone is often partly obscured by the overlying shoulders and upper arms. This example (from a different patient) demonstrates the triangular opacity of the upper lobe.
  • Right lower zone shadowing
    • Right lower zone shadowing is combined with obliteration of the hemidiaphragm (silhouette sign). This needs to be differentiated from a pleural effusion . The right heart border, which is anterior, is usually still clearly seen (silhouette sign again). The oblique fissure lies more horizontally and may become visible, giving a sharp upper margin to the shadowing. If the lobe collapses completely, it may appear as a triangular opacity behind the right heart border. The heart border, being anterior will still be clearly seen.

The terms focal and segmental refers to the pattern of damage in the kidney as seen under a microscope. Focal means that some of the glomeruli are scarred while others are normal. Segmental means that only a part of an individual glomerulus is damaged.
  • type I MPGN
    • shows the characteristic histologic features of type I MPGN (and most cases of type II MPGN). There is thickening of capillary walls. This is usually global and diffuse but is occasionally at least focally and segmentally variable. There is also hypercellularity. Much of this hypercellularity is mesangial proliferation, and some of the capillary wall thickening is caused by mesangial interposition into the subendothelial zone of the capillary loops. This is the basis for the term mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis.
  • Mesangiocapillary Glomerulonephritis

    • Langerhans cell histiocytosis. Cutaneous abnormalities are present in about 80% of patients and are frequently the initial sign of the disease. The eruption may be extensive, involving the scalp, the face, the trunk, and the buttocks as well as the intertriginous areas. Lesions may consist of petechiae or yellow-brown papules topped with scale and crust. The papules may coalesce to form an erythematous, weeping eruption mimicking seborrheic dermatitis.

    • Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an idiopathic disease characterized in its early stages by granulomatous nodules containing Langerhans histiocytes and eosinophils. In its later stages, the granulomas are replaced by fibrosis and the formation of cysts. It is an uncommon condition. The majority of patients are young or middle-aged adults presenting with nonspecific symptoms of cough and dyspnea. Up to 20% of patients present with pneumothorax and over 90% of patients are smokers. Most cysts appear round, but can also have bizarre shapes (bilobed or clover-leaf shaped). An upper lobe predominance in the size and number of cysts is common.

  • Pagets disease
    • There is antero-posterior bowing of the tibia. The process involves grossly disordered architecture with loss of the usual cortico-medullary distinction. The process extends to the knee joint and the bone is larger and more disordered towards the knee. It appears more normal towards the ankle. The wide, dense lower margin of the abnormal area is flame-shaped. On the anterior cortex of the bone there are linear defects. Such increment fractures are also typical of this process. When such an appearance occurs, it implies microfracture and an attempt at healing. The process may be seen in metabolic diseases that affect bone mechanics in mature subjects. The implication is that the healing process has the potential to temporarily weaken the bone.
  • Pagets disease

  • Hypertensive retinopathy
  • papilledema
    • The cardinal feature of malignant hypertension is papilledema, which appears as blurring and elevation of disk margins. This image also demonstrates a flame-shaped hemorrhage and dilated veins.

  • Hypertensive retinopathy
    • Hypertensive retinopathy is traditionally divided into four grades. A, Grade 1 shows early and minor changes in a young patient. Increased tortuosity of a retinal vessel and increased reflectiveness (silver wiring) of a retinal artery are seen at 1 o'clock in this view. Otherwise, the fundus is completely normal. B, Grade 2 also shows increased tortuosity and silver wiring (arrowheads). In addition, there is “nipping” of the venules at arteriovenous crossings (arrow). C, Grade 3 shows the same changes as grade 2 plus flame-shaped retinal hemorrhages and soft “cotton wool” exudates. D, In grade 4, there is swelling of the optic disc (papilledema), retinal edema is present, and hard exudates may collect around the fovea, producing a typical “macular star.”
    • In this 15° view, note the arteriovenous crossing changes, presence of collateral vessels, and dilated capillary bed .
  • Hypertensive retinopathy
    • Advanced hypertensive retinopathy. Lipid deposits in the macula (1), cotton-wool spots (2), small flame hemorrhages (3), vascular light reflex changes, venous tortuosity, and early disc edema are present. 
  • Hypertensive retinopathy
    • Bilateral optic nerve edema. Associated subretinal fluid, flame-shaped hemorrhages, and lipid exudation in a macular star configuration are evident in this patient with malignant hypertensive retinopathy.
  • Leuco-erythroblastic reaction
    • Leuco-erythroblastic reaction can be the bone marrow response to any irritation, including infiltration by any malignancy (or histiocytosis for that matter), but special stains for histiocytes need to be done in the marrow to prove the diagnosis.
