Pulmonary Langerhans' cell histiocytosis (PLCH) represents an uncommon interstitial lung clinical disorder with unpredictable clinical presentation and outcome. The precise incidence of pulmonary LCH is unknown, although it has been estimated as about two cases per million yearly in adults. Some patients take a long time to be correctly diagnosed because of its rarity. In the present clinical image report, we describe a rather unusual case of a smoker man with PLCH presented with pneumothorax.

Isolated deep femoral artery aneurysms often remain undetected as a result of their deep location in the thigh.1,2 Despite being a rare condition, these aneurysms are associated with a high incidence of rupture and high rates of lower extremity major amputation.2 Deep femoral artery aneurysms account for approximately 0.5% of all peripheral aneurysms and 1-2.6% of femoral aneurysms.3 In the vast majority of cases, the etiology of deep femoral artery aneurysm is atherosclerosis, with a higher prevalence in men (92%) and a mean age of 70 years.4,5.

A 54-year-old female patient presented to our clinic with marked skin and soft tissue necrosis on both legs. This condition had been ex- isting for two weeks. Initially, the patient showed redness, swelling, hyperthermia and blistering of the lower legs without fever. Due to elevated markers of infection in the blood and the microbiological evidence of wound colonisation with Enterobacter cloacae complex, an antibiotic therapy with intravenous administration of ceftriaxone was initiated.

Cystinosis is a rare autosomal recessive metabolic disease, with an incidence ranging from 1:100,000 to 1:200,000. It occurs by chromosomal mutation, in which a defect in the active transport of cystine across the lysosomal membrane allows the accumulation of this amino acid in lysosomes.¹ As a result, cystine can form crystals in various tissues such as the kidneys, pancreas, thyroid, testicles, bone marrow, brain, eye, and muscles ²

The use of implant supported fixed prosthesis in partially or completely edentulous patients have gained popularity and many newer techniques have been made to overcome the disadvantages of the conventional Branemark system of implant placements. [1,2] Basal implants or bicortical implants utilize the concept of engaging the highly dense basal bone, which offers a greater primary stability and therefore favors immediate loading without any bone augmentation procedures2.
