Lesson of the month 2: Cauda equina in Cushing's syndrome.

Clin Med (Lond) 2016 Feb;16(1):88-90

Medical Oncology, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, UK.

We present the case of a 34-year old woman who initially presented with obesity and back pain. She was eventually diagnosed with Cushing's syndrome secondary to an adrenocortical carcinoma that had metastasised to her spine, causing cauda equina compression. The delays in reaching the correct diagnosis caused significant morbidity and exemplify the pitfalls of premature closing, a common cognitive error in diagnostic reasoning.

Do suncreens protect us?

Authors:
Douglas L Maslin

Int J Dermatol 2014 Nov 10;53(11):1319-23. Epub 2014 Sep 10.

Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, UK.

Sunlight stimulates a multitude of important biological effects on skin, causing, amongst other pathological changes, photocarcinogenesis. Sunscreens are designed to provide protection against these harmful properties of ultraviolet radiation, and public health campaigns have been employed to encourage their use. Despite this, there has been a continued rise in the incidence and mortality of the most harmful skin cancer, malignant melanoma. This review article therefore looks at the role of ultraviolet radiation in causing skin cancer; summarizes the available evidence on both the beneficial and harmful effects of sunscreen use; and concludes with practical advice on how we might advise our patients to best protect themselves from photocarcinogenesis.
