Abstract: This is still the mid-1980s and the medical scene in Malta is still “under duress”, with the MAM strike still on and with many specialist procedures requiring visiting consultants from the UK. A clinician from my year at medical school, practicing in Malta, has two infant daughters, the younger of whom has had a recurrent nodule in one of her toes. I was sent the recurrent nodule for opinion – the first nodule was probably not referred to pathology. Local recurrence raised a suspicion of possible malignancy.
