Todays Medical Challenge


I like to gross out the readers of EverythingHealth and today's medical challenge should do just that. In the interest of full disclosure...this is the first diagnosis I have personally missed in this challenge series from NEJM.

What is your diagnosis?
1. Lichen planus
2. Mycosis fungoides
3. Ostraceous psoriasis
4. Paraneoplastic phemphigoid
5, Staph scalded skin syndrome

Make your diagnosis (click the image for a better view) and the answer will be posted tomorrow.
