NEJM Clinical Practice Center: Image in Clinical Medicine: A 65-year-old man presented with a 6-week history of severe itching in the inguinal area. A crab-shaped parasite moving along a pubic hair was revealed by dermoscopy. See the image (and watch the video) at the link below.

NEJM Journal Watch Emergency Medicine: It is common practice and standard dogma to perform a pelvic exam when a pregnant woman presents with vaginal bleeding or abdominal pain. But is this practice really necessary?
