Skin disorders in which a radiograph may detect associated bony changes or abnormalities of calcification are discussed. They are grouped into eight categories: (1) inherited diseases (e.g., alkaptonuria, neurofibromatosis); (2) congenital disorders (e.g., Sturge-Weber and Proteus syndromes); (3) inflammatory conditions (e.g., dermatomyositis, sarcoidosis);(More)

Twenty-six patients with bacteremia caused by group G streptococci were seen during a 29-month period. Our findings suggest that the epidemiology of these infections has not changed appreciably during the last 15 years. The disease occurs most commonly as an acute community-acquired infection in older persons with underlying conditions predisposing to skin(More)

The classic definition of a nevus depigmentosus is a stable congenital leukoderma that may be localized, segmental, or less often, systematized. Herein we report 2 patients whose achromic nevi underwent an unusual change--the development of multiple lentigines. The lentigines ranged in size from 3 to 5 mm and the majority had an irregular outline. Although(More)
