If you have ever been confounded by a case or have correctly interpreted a subtle finding, then you probably have encountered a diagnostic puzzler that you might want to share with other readers of The Journal of Respiratory Diseases.

We are looking for unusual cases, uncommon findings, or good teaching examples. The photo shown above is an example of polka-dot lesions caused by cupping.

All we need is a brief case presentation (usually a paragraph) and a slide or photograph of the finding that provided the clue. Please also include the diagnosis and a discussion of the steps you followed to arrive at it. Of course, we will give you printed recognition for your submission and $200, as a small token of our appreciation. Residents (under supervision) are also invited to make submissions.

Address your submissions to:
