The noninvasive recognition of the ischemic etiology of such patients is difficult, and for this purpose, usually patients undergo coronary angiography. It has been shown that cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging can detect(More)

BACKGROUND Coronary artery anomalies (CAAs) are a relatively rare condition usually diagnosed in vivo by conventional angiography. In the past few years Magnetic resonance coronary angiography (MRCA) has been used to detect CAAs and found to be highly accurate. No data is available regarding the ability of MRCA to detect previously not suspected anomalies.(More)
Transient reactive papulotranslucent acrokeratoderma (TRPA) is an unusual skin condition characterized by the rapid and transient development of symmetric, edematous white papules with eccrine duct prominence on the palms after exposure to water. We present the case of a 28-year-old woman diagnosed in our clinic with TRPA induced by the use of a(More)
