MATTESON and the AMERICAN COLLEGE O F RHEUMATOLOGY AUDIOVISUAL AIDS SUBCOMMITTEE The major project completed by the Audiovisual Aids Subcommittee of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) in 1996 was the development of a pediatric slide supplement. This supplement of 76 slides is now available through the ACR. The materials for the supplement were obtained from members of the College who submitted hundreds of slides of excellent quality, making the selection for the supplement a difficult but pleasurable task. The Subcommittee would like to thank Drs. James W. Bass, Suzanne L. Bowyer, James T. Cassidy, Elizabeth Dugan, Stephen W. George, Donald P. Goldsmith, Michael Henrickson, Susan Hoch, Ronald M. Laxer, Carol B. Lindsley, Richard Mier, Frederick W. Miller, S. Ray Mitchell, Audrey M. Nelson, Donald A. Person, Thomas A. Pressly, and Lisa G. Rider and Ms. Beverly Tobe for their slides. The members of the Subcommittee are especially grateful to Drs. James T. Cassidy and Carol B. Lindsley for their expert assistance Members of the Audiovisual Aids Subcommittee of the Education Committee of the American College of Rheumatology: Eric L. Matteson, MD.

Louisiana. as consultants in assembling and annotating the pediatric slide supplement. The new slides can be integrated into the existing Clinical Slide Collection on the Rheumatic Diseases using the section numbering developed for the 1995 edition of the collection, which classifies the slides according to definition, clinical, radiographic, and pathologic findings, and treatment topics. The winning slides in the 1996 slide competition are depictions of discoid lupus erythematosus involving the ear, Henoch-Schonlein purpura in a 4-year-old boy, Kawasaki disease in a 2-year-old child, polyarteritis nodosa of the fingers, and subcutaneous nodules of acute rheumatic fever in an 8-year-old girl. The Subcommittee is planning to develop a clinical supplement on osteoporosis to be released at the 1997 National Scientific Meeting of the ACR. We welcome submissions of slides for this supplement, as well as additional pediatric slides and slides for the general collection. Please submit your slides and suggestions to Eric L. Matteson, MD, Chair, ACR Audiovisual Aids Subcommittee, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street SE, Rochester, MN 55905. Figure 1. Systemic lupus erythematosus: ear, discoid Iesions.

Acute rheumatic fever: wrist, subcutaneous nodules. Subcutaneous nodules of acute rheumatic fever are seen in this &year-old girl. Three painless nodules on the ventral surface of the wrist were noted after a 1-week history of migratory arthritis. Significant carditis developed subsequently, and the lesions disappeared in 3 weeks. Nodules associated with acute rheumatic fever more often occur on extensor surfaces at bony prominences and are usually associated with more severe disease. Submitted by Donald P.
