1/33. Potentiation of warfarin's hypoprothrombinemic effect with miconazole vaginal suppositories.

    A 53-year-old woman being treated for a vaginal yeast infection experienced ecchymosis. Laboratory evaluation revealed a prolonged prothrombin time. It is possible that the bleeding was due to an interaction between warfarin and miconazole. health care professionals should be aware of the potential for drug interactions with vaginally administered miconazole, especially in women receiving anticoagulation therapy.

2/33. Trigeminal autonomic cephalgia with periorbital ecchymosis, ocular hemorrhage, hypertension and behavioral alterations.

    We describe a 38-year-old male in whom severe unilateral headache was associated with marked palpebral edema, periorbital ecchymosis, lacrimation, conjunctival injection, nasal congestion and rhinorrhea. A second, less severe headache form developed subsequently. The patient often presented severe labile hypertension and behavioral disturbances during the crises, and there was an episode of intra-ocular hemorrhage. General, neurological and ophthalmological examinations revealed nothing remarkable. We discuss possible pathogenetic mechanisms and the nosology of this case within the trigeminal autonomic cephalgias.

3/33. Facial features of widespread neuroblastoma: a case report.

    A case report of stage IV neuroblastoma which presented with periorbital swelling and ecchymosis originally misdiagnosed as facial trauma. The child soon developed a sinister pancytopenia, which following extensive investigations was revealed to be due to an underlying neuroblastoma. Periorbital ecchymosis associated with neuroblastoma is termed 'raccoon eyes' and is a diagnostic trap for the unwary.

4/33. Mogul skier's palm: traumatic hypothenar ecchymosis.

    A unique purpuric--golden lesion on the hypothenar eminence of each palm is described in a mogul skier. These painful lesions, resulting from vigorous repetitive pole planting in the "bumps" at a ski area, are postulated to represent a form of localized soft tissue injury.

5/33. back to the basics: hemorrhage after vaccination: a case report.

    A 50-day-old girl with swelling and ecchymosis of right hand dorsum after DTP vaccination on ipsilateral deltoid area was referred to the pediatric infectious disease outpatient unit with a presumed diagnosis of gangrenous cellulites. physical examination and laboratory evaluation revealed intramuscular bleeding as a result of vitamin k deficiency. We would like to emphasize the importance of both vitamin K prophylaxis in the newborn to prevent hemorrhagic disease of the newborn and of the education of persons administering vaccines about this very basic aspect of pediatrics for early recognition.

6/33. giant cell arteritis presenting as peri-orbital ecchymosis.

    Neuro-ophthalmic manifestations are common in giant cell arteritis (GCA) and sometimes may be the only presenting feature. Clinicians should be aware of typical and atypical features of GCA in order to intervene in time before permanent damage occurs.

7/33. Periorbital ecchymosis as a sign of perforating injury of the globe.

    The distinction between penetrating eye injury with retained intraocular foreign body and perforating globe injuries is not always easy clinically. The case is presented of a 25-year-old man who sustained a perforating eye injury that was through a clear self-sealing corneal entry site and had no conjunctival or periorbital injury. He had periorbital ecchymosis on presentation suggesting that the globe had been perforated with resulting retro-orbital blood tracking to the periorbital region. This sign would not be expected had the foreign body remained intraocular. The management options of these cases are discussed.

8/33. Seat-belt injuries in children involved in motor vehicle crashes.

    BACKGROUND: The efficacy of seat belts in reducing deaths from motor vehicle crashes is well documented. A unique association of injuries has emerged in adults and children with the use of seat belts. The "seat-belt syndrome" refers to the spectrum of injuries associated with lap-belt restraints, particularly flexion-distraction injuries to the spine (Chance fractures). methods: We describe the injuries sustained by 8 children, including 2 sets of twins, in 3 different motor vehicle crashes. RESULTS: All children were rear seat passengers wearing lap or 3-point restraints. All had abdominal lap-belt ecchymosis and multiple abdominal injuries due to the common mechanism of seat-belt compression with hyperflexion and distraction during deceleration. Five of the children had lumbar spine fractures and 4 remained permanently paraplegic. CONCLUSIONS: These incidents illustrate the need for acute awareness of the complete spectrum of intra-abdominal and spinal injuries in restrained pediatric passengers in motor vehicle crashes and for rear seat restraints that include shoulder belts with the ability to adjust them to fit smaller passengers, including older children.

9/33. Parry-Romberg syndrome.

    The authors report an unusual case of Parry-Romberg syndrome (PRS). magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography scan of the craniofacial region and surgical correction of enophthalmos were performed. Results after the operative intervention included persistent palpebral edema and ecchymosis and transient choroid vasculitis of the right eye, highlighted with echography and fluorescein angiography. The fundus oculi examination showed retinal choroid folds. Immunological test results were weakly positive. The authors conclude enophthalmos, associated with right side hemi atrophy, and the transient choroids vasculitis support the diagnosis of PRS. Furthermore, it is suggested the case had an autoimmune etiology, rather than a hemi facial asymmetry caused by a facial trauma that occurred in puberty.

10/33. Cullen's sign: it doesn't always mean hemorrhagic pancreatitis.

    Periumbilical ecchymosis, Cullen's sign, is most often considered a sign of hemorrhagic pancreatitis. We present a case of splenic rupture secondary to infectious mononucleosis in a middle-aged patient whose presenting complaint was the presence of Cullen's sign, secondary to the hemoperitoneum. The splenic rupture was managed conservatively, and the Cullen's sign resolved within 14 days of presentation.
