Hey guys, I figured it would be both fun and beneficial if we quiz each other on photos, all on a single thread!

Format :

1) State your Photo Quiz Number (which is 1 digit after the previous photo quiz)

2) Put up your photo!

3) Give the answer to your photo after 2-3 days. :) (give time for people to guess first, before you break the suspense!):D

All of you are on the right track, another hint is that pic is of a young infant (if you look closely you can see his diaper), and that the rings are around the knee joint.

I'll post the answer tomorrow just to give other people a chance to try, but keep trying to figure it out, you're almost there. :)

candida seems to be a more probable, as diaper rash will follow the area which is in contact with diaper,also will never be in crural fold(though ot show here, where as candida can spread the way in this picture.. candida is characterized by erosions, red plaques and satellite lesions like in here...

Photo Quiz 003


What is this? :D

Update :
Case : A 45 year old circus animal trainer came to the ER with severe anaphylactic shock. He has a history of abdominal discomfort. This organism was found to have caused his condition.

Answer : Echinococcus granulosus

Alrite the answer to the second picture is serum sickness caused by type III hypersensitivity.

When there are immune complexes involved, causing joint symptoms, myalgias and fever, it is usually referred to as a serum sickness reaction, as shown in figure 6. As you know serum sickness is also associated with arthirits, so that's why you can see most of rings over the knee and pelvic joint put skips a portion of the thigh.:)
