Paging any dermatologists, epidemiologists, or pathology-minded scientists -- any idea what in name of the gods this
is? (Probably SFW, but not safe if you want to eat today or at least not wretch).
So a couple of us in the lab have been somewhat fascinated -- more sickened -- by this, but as we work on viruses (and this doesn't look anything like a viral infection) we've been reduced to guesses, mostly in the realm of fungal/lichen or syphilis (in its older more virulent form, as seen on the BBC News
) and yaws.
