1.  Oxaliplatin-induced coronary artery spasm: first report of an important side-effect 
BMJ Case Reports  2009;2009:bcr06.2008.0334.
A 67-year-old woman with metastatic colorectal cancer was given her first oxaliplatin infusion as part of the XELOX protocol. She developed chest pain with ECG changes leading subsequently to a diagnosis of coronary artery spasm. To our knowledge, this is the first report of oxaliplatin-induced coronary artery spasm.

2.  Contact burns from hair straighteners: a new hazard in the home 
This series highlights a previously unreported hazard for children within the home, hair straightening irons. Thermal injury is a common reason for presentation at the emergency department. Contact burns from domestic irons and hair curling tongs are well documented in the literature. We have become aware of this new hazard in the home, which has resulted in several presentations to our department with deep partial thickness or full thickness burns.
