You are invited to submit a brief case description, including the specialty nursing care provided, and several glossy, color photographs of the clinical situation. The case material will then be sent to another wound, skin, ostomy, or continence care clinician, who will also address management concerns. Alternative solutions to difficult wound, skin, ostomy, or incontinence clinical situations will be published.
