ARTHRITIS & RHEUMATISM Vol. 58, No. 3, March 2008, pp 908–909 DOI 10.1002/art.23393 © 2008, American College of Rheumatology Winners of the 2007 American College of Rheumatology Annual Slide Competition American College of Rheumatology Audiovisual Aids Subcommittee The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Audiovisual Aids Subcommittee is pleased to present the winners of the 2007 Annual Slide Competition. This year’s competition was the largest ever, with almost 400 images submitted. Among the submissions were images depicting Charcot arthropathy, histiocytosis X, central nervous system vasculitis, psoriatic arthritis, and juvenile dermatomyositis. Each submitted image was meticulously evaluated not only for possible selection as a competition winner, but also for possible inclusion in the ACR Slide Collection on the Rheumatic Diseases. The 2007 overall competition winner was a colonoscopy image of intestinal Henoch-Schönlein purpura (Figure 1). A slide showing the evolution of heart block in sarcoidosis (Figure 2) was selected as the case study winner. In the still image category there was a first-place tie between radiographic images of Charcot arthropathy (Figure 3) and a histologic depiction of urate nephropathy (Figure 4). A slide showing osteolysis with detritic synovitis (Figure 5) received third place. The ACR encourages the continued submission of high-quality images to the competition. Prizes for the winning slides include complimentary registration for the annual meeting, complimentary hotel accommodations for the annual meeting, and copies of the slide collection, and the winning slides are published in Arthritis & Rheumatism. The Audiovisual Aids Subcommittee is targeting particular images to enhance the slide collection; the wish list can be found at http://www. rheumatology.org/educ/slidecompetition/wishlist.asp. If you have quality images that illustrate findings included in the wish list or other interesting rheumatologic conditions, please join the 2008 competition; the deadline for submission is September 1, 2008.

The series of electrocardiograms demonstrates the progressive evolution of heart block. Submitted by Irina Rakylar, MD, Washington, DC. Figure 3. Charcot arthropathy (composite). Neuroarthropathy is seen in the wrist, marked by osseous resorption, carpal malalignment, and flattening and sclerosis of the distal aspect of the radius and ulna. Note the syrinx in the thoracic spinal cord. Submitted by Rupert Abdalian, MD, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Figure 4. Urate nephropathy: photomicrograph. Precipitated uric acid is seen as washed-out areas on this hematoxylin and eosin–stained specimen. Submitted by Simon Chatfield, MD, Parkville, Victoria, Australia. Figure 5. Osteolysis with detritic synovitis (composite). Note the soft tissue swelling of the distal aspects of the fingers in the clinical image. The radiograph shows band-like resorption of the tufts of the distal phalanges. Submitted by Lester Miller, MD, Santa Cruz, CA.
