Those amazing photos are the result of a meeting between Pope Francis and a man whose face has been badly disfigured by neurofibromatosis*, as part of the Pope’s General Audience in St. Peter’s Square.

There are somethings that medicine can’t provide. And this is one of them. Although medicine and science and surgery may be able to heal this man of his disease.. the love and comfort that the pope provides to this man is something that medicine cannot. 
This picture really reminds me that often medicine is too focused on treating the disease and we have to constantly remind ourselves that we are treating people.

Neuroblastoma, Homer Wright Rosettes are circular groupings of dark tumor cells surrounding pale neurofibrils (small blue cell tumors from neural crest ectoderm). This histologic finding is found in neuroblastoma, medulloblastoma and retinoblastoma.
Characteristics of neuroblastoma include overexpression of the N-myc oncogene, bombesin tumor marker and neurofilament positive histological stains. 
Note: Do not confuse with Perivascular Pseudorosettes/Rosettes found in Ependymomas


Homer Wright rosettes are characteristic in primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNETs).
PNETs are meduloblastomas, Ewing sarcomas etc


Note the tumor cells surrounding a central acidophilic region.[X]

homo-medicus:

Harlequin color change is a dramatic but benign phenomenon in which the color on the dependent half of an infant turns deep red while the upper half is pale. Usually, this benign change in color is abrupt, lasts between 30 seconds and 20 minutes, and resolves with increased activity. Up to 10% of infants undergo this color change, which occurs between the second and fifth days of life. Attributed to a temporary imbalance in autonomic regulation, the phenomenon is more common among low-birth-weight infants.

Ludwig’s Angina


 Ludwig’s angina is an infectious process involving the submental, sublingual, and submandibular spaces. It can rapidly progress to hemodynamic instability and airway obstruction; in rare cases, it spreads into the mediastinum. Compromise of the airway can progress rapidly, with lethal consequences; therefore, immediate consideration should be given to surgical débridement of the infected areas and antimicrobial therapy.

Calcified hydatid cyst, CT
Eggshell calcifications of a hepatic cyst on CT. Hydatid cysts are caused by echinoccus granulosa, an infectious worm associated with close and intimate canine contact. These cysts can occur in liver, lung, muscle and bone, frequently undergoing calcification.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis

  • Rare, severe, atypical form of chronic pyelonephritis due to infection (E. coli, Proteus) or stones, but resembling renal cell carcinoma; correct preoperative diagnosis is unusual
  • Destructive inflammatory process that may complicate chronic pyelonephritis
  • Characterized by foamy (lipid laden) macrophages (epitheloid cells) replacing renal parenchyma
  • Usually unilateral, ages 40+, 2/3 women
