An unusual case of quadriparesis

A 48 year old man presented with a four day history of lethargy, dizziness, and an unsteady gait with recurrent falls, on a background of chronic alcohol misuse. The patient was taking desmopressin for nocturnal enuresis and bendroflumethiazide for hypertension, which were both stopped on admission.

Multiple enlarging nodules on the lower limb

A 99 year old white woman presented with a 12 month history of nodules and plaques on her left shin. They had been slowly increasing in size and bled intermittently. She denied any history of trauma to her leg and had been systemically well. She reported having high blood pressure and that she had previously had “skin problems” affecting her lower left leg that required surgery. Her only regular drug was bendroflumethiazide, and she had no known drug allergies. She was a non-smoker and drank minimal alcohol. She lived in a ground floor flat and used a walking stick. On review of her medical notes, it was discovered that two areas of squamous cell carcinoma were excised from her left shin 10 years earlier.

An abnormality at the hepatic flexure

A 92 year old woman presented to the emergency department after collapsing at home. She recalled standing from her chair, feeling lightheaded, and then collapsing. She had felt generally weak for more than a year, with weight loss of 56 lb (25.2 kg) but no change in bowel habit, dysphagia, or gastrointestinal bleeding. Her medical history included hypertension, hypothyroidism, and anaemia (which was currently being investigated by her general practitioner). Among other drugs, she was taking lisinopril, bendroflumethiazide, and levothyroxine. Her son had died at 60 years of age from large bowel obstruction and perforation secondary to colon cancer.
