Congratulations to the 2002 winners: April Chang-Miller, MD and Mark V. Larson, MD won first place in the competition, for their endoscopy demonstrating an array of linear striping resembling the appearance of a watermelon, in the stomach of a 53-year-old man with diffuse scleroderma. Drs. ChangMiller and Larson will receive one registration to the 2003 ACR Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando October 24–28, plus hotel reservations for 4 nights during the meeting. The second-place winner was Patrick J. Riccardi, MD, who submitted a slide depicting severe ischemic changes in the hands and nose of a young woman with elevated cold agglutinin levels. Dr. Riccardi will receive registration to the 2003 ACR Annual Scientific Meeting. Third place was awarded to Joseph H. Korn, MD. Dr. Korn’s entry illustrated tophaceous deposits resulting in severe deformity in a 56-year-old man with longstanding gout. He received one copy of the ACR Clinical Slide Collection in 35-mm slide format and one copy in CD-ROM format. The committee would also like to acknowledge the following individuals for their outstanding medical images: Glenn C. Douglass, MD (Charleston, SC), Petros Efthimiou, MD (New York, NY), Jane L.

Submitted for publication May 27, 2003; accepted July 3, 2003. 2737 2738 MILLER ET AL Figure 1. Watermelon stomach: esophagogastroduodenoscopy. Endoscopy demonstrates an array of linear striping resembling the appearance of a watermelon in the stomach of a 53-year-old man with diffuse scleroderma. Vascular ectasia is responsible for this appearance. The condition is often complicated by upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Submitted by April Chang-Miller, MD and Mark V. Larson, MD, Rochester, MN. Figure 3. Tophaceous gout: hand. Tophaceous deposits have produced severe deformity in this 56-year-old man with longstanding gout. Submitted by Joseph H. Korn, MD, Boston, MA. Figure 2. Cold agglutinin disease: ischemic changes, hands and face. Severe ischemic changes are present in the hands and nose of this young woman with elevated levels of cold agglutinins. The ischemic changes resolved with warming, intravenous corticosteroids, and plasmapheresis. The cold agglutinins were thought to be due to quinine used for restless leg syndrome.
