Have you ever looked at a visual patient clue - a rash, a lesion, a possible drug reaction - and wondered, What is this? What am I looking at?   Understanding the skin, skin conditions, and rashes can be complex. Skinsight is authored by the same team that has developed VisualDx. Let our experts help to improve your skills and understanding of skin conditions.

Cocaine Levamisole Toxicity : Cocaine contaminated with levamisole has been detected in the United States since 2003, and the incidence of toxicity caused by this contamination has been increasing rapidly since 2008. Use of cocaine that has been adulterated with levamisole can lead to a constellation of symptoms including agranulocytosis, neutropenia, and a vasculitis-like purpuric tender skin eruption.
