Abstract Germinomas presenting with a pituitary stalk lesion and panhypopituitarism are rare in children, and their definite diagnosis is challenging. An invasive diagnostic approach, such as a transsphenoidal biopsy, is often required prior to establishing a treatment regimen. A 13-year-old female presented with 1 year of secondary amenorrhea, fatigue, and ...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) can cause numerous skin lesions. Despite being rare, lupus-specific bullous lesions demonstrate characteristic clinical and immunopathological features and require differential diagnosis among numerous bullous conditions that may overlap with SLE. The present study presents a case of bullous systemic lupus erythematosus (BSLE) in a pregnant woman.

Limited dorsal myeloschisis (LDM) is a distinctive form of spinal dysraphism characterized by two constant features: a focal "closed" midline skin defect and a fibroneural stalk that links the skin lesion to the underlying cord.
