Medical Must-See: Diagnosed with 'eczema', something kept bugging the patient
A patient's 'eczema' diagnosis seemed a little fuzzy when his symptoms failed to improve with the usual treatment.
The man, in his 50s, was prescribed topical steroid cream and oral antihistamines to no avail, with his erythematous left wrist with sharp pain persisting for five months.
But then dermatologists, like a moth to a flame, discovered why.
On physical examination, they noted scattered erythematous papules and nodules on the left wrist and performed a biopsy.
