'Read my lips...'


Peter Devitt

Professorial Surgical Unit
Royal Adelaide Hospital


The title provides the theme for these ten Spot Diagnoses. In most instances the diagnosis should be apparent from the appearance of the lips lesions. Occasionally some history will help...

For those who wish to know more about the title. 'Read my lips: no new taxes' was the main theme of George H.W. Bush's acceptance speech for the Presidential nomination at the Republican Party Convention. During his time as President, Bush introduced and raised taxes. This phrase was used against him to devastating effect by the contender for the next Presidential election - Bill Clinton.
