Introduction: Lately, a new idea has caught the attention of young people of both genders, being debated in consultation rooms, during classes, and especially on social media: is using horse shampoo for human hair wrong or not?

Material and methods: A simple questionnaire about horse shampoo and its use in humans was addressed to 85 students.

Results: Thirty-eight responders were aware of its existence, 27 have tried it and 3 were still using it as a weekly shampoo. All positive responders were young women who declared being completely satisfied by horse shampoo and none of them have reported side effects.

Conclusion: Although it has good reviews, horse shampoo is not available in human pharmacies. As dermatologists, we are still looking for an answer.

The research of Han summarized the clinical data of 48 patients who received treatment with pig ATG, the total therapeutic effect was 82.2%, almost the same as rabbit ATG.

Traumatic bilateral dissection of the carotid arteries is a rare condition with potentially life-threatening complications. The case of a 57-year-old male patient with acute onset left sided hemiparesis, twelve hours after a blunt head injury, caused by a horse kick, is reported. A cerebral CT scan revealed right middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory infarction. Based on Duplex ultrasound and Angio CT scan findings, a diagnosis of bilateral ICA dissection was established. Despite antithrombotic treatment, the patient presented with a progressive worsening of his neurological status. The control CT scan evidenced malignant right MCA territory infarction that required decompressive craniotomy. The patient was discharged with significant neurological deficits. Together with this case, the aetiologies, clinical manifestations, diagnostic and therapeutical options and outcome of carotid artery dissection are discussed.
