My wife astonishes me

This is the case I posted few days back. Today while going through my Blog my wife asked me.

Is this the same case you missed for your exam in Glasgow? Some Lupus or something.....

After nearly 10 years of dermatology training and publishing a study of treatment options in SLE in nearly 80 patients, I failed to consider papulosquamous SCLE in this patient with psoriasiform lesions over exposed areas while my wife from computer field with zero dermatology training did so! I guess that is how life is. I write better java, php and VB code than her with zero training (smile).

I will investigate him further when he comes next time.

The story of how I missed SCLE for my exam in Glasgow, I will post later.

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
