  • Good quiz and great pictures. A few thoughts-The 'acanthosis nigricans' which may occur in young people associated with obesity is better termed pseudoacanthosis nigricans. I don't think swabbing ulcers is that helpful as it often shows organisms of no relevance and can result in unnecessary treatment with antibiotics. Angular chelitis is more often associated with candida infection due to the area being constantly wet eg. ill-fitting dentures.
