"We’ve selected our image of the week. A 5 year-old patient presents with this lesion, which began as a blister and evolved into the above growth over the course of 5 days. Other members of the Figure 1 community have suggested subcutaneous horn, verruca vulgaris, and pyogenic granuloma. Which do you think is the most likely?" By figure1 on Instagram

"Today marks the first anniversary of the outbreak of #Ebola in #Guinea, the first country affected in the #epidemic. Over the past year, more than 1,300 #MSF international staff and 4,000 local staff have been deployed in #WestAfrica, where they cared for nearly 5,000 confirmed Ebola #patients. “The Ebola outbreak has often been described as a perfect storm: a cross-border epidemic in countries with weak public health systems that had never seen Ebola before,” says Christopher Stokes, MSF general director. “Yet this is too convenient an explanation. For the Ebola outbreak to spiral this far out of control required many institutions to fail. And they did, with tragic and avoidable consequences.” A report released today, ‘Pushed to the limits and beyond’, describes MSF’s early warnings one year ago about cases of Ebola spreading in Guinea, the initial denial by governments of the affected countries, and the unprecedented steps that MSF was forced to take in the face of global inaction as the outbreak engulfed neighbouring states.
