Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated September 15 through October 15. What is now a 30-day celebration started as a weeklong celebration in 1968. On August 17, 1988, the week was expanded to 30 days by President Ronald Reagan. This month celebrates the history, culture, and contributions of people whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. This particular four-week period was chosen because it encompasses the national anniversaries of independence across much of Latin America including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Mexico.

For those who may not know, Latinx people have a long history in our country dating back to the first-known colony founded by the Spanish at Saint Augustine, Florida in September 1565. More recently, Hispanics and Latinx have become the fastest growing group in the United States, with their ranks growing 23 percent in the past decade, according to the 2020 Census. Today, nearly one in five people in the U.S. population identifies as Hispanic or Latinx.

What is the difference between Latinx and Hispanic? In basic terms, Latinx describes the people and culture of Latin American descent. Hispanic describes the people and culture of Spanish-speaking countries.

We encourage everyone to learn more about Hispanic and Latinx history, culture, and people.

Feline: This condition we call early-life eye disease. The characteristics are broad central corneal obliteration with anterior uveal and/or lens prolapse, surface epithelialization, relatively bland inflammation (variable), a history suggesting a neonatal onset, and symblepharon. This was a 4-year-old cat living comfortably with the iris protruding from the cornea, probably since birth. That is also a feature of the condition.

Almost looks like something from space!

A “sunflower” cell: A neoplastic mesothelial cell in a pleural fluid from a dog with mesothelioma contains large amounts of hemosiderin in the cytoplasm. The cytoplasmic fringe or extensions of the cell give a corona or, in this case, a “sunflower” appearance to the cells. Another mesothelial cell with hemosiderin is also in this image (Prussian blue stain). Macrophages also contained abundant hemosiderin - the dog had a hemorrhagic effusion. This is the same case as the previous post.

Congratulations to Alisia Weyna for telling us the horse in last week's question is OK for purchase! The circled feature is a granula iridica - a normal feature of equine ocular anatomy.

We're going to look at another horse this week. B&W is up on the locker with a color version soon to follow. Derm path students - this is an easy one!

03/21/2019

Don't forget - today is your last day to tell us whether or not this horse is OK for purchase! Winner gets candy (we have Reese's, Sour Patch Kids, and more!)!

Question of the Week - This one will extend through spring break into the next week of classes. So, you have almost 2 whole weeks to "ponder the path" 😂.
