Shukran is an 8-year-old boy, who has been brought into hospital shortly after starting treatment with a severe, blister-like rash. He is one of three critically ill children admitted with similar symptoms. These films follow children over time, recording clinic visits or admissions to hospital, stopping to ask questions whenever treatment decisions need to be made. Suggested answers are contained in accompanying notes, which can be downloaded. Editable versions for adapting to different settings can be obtained from info@picturinghealth.org
