A previously healthy 61-year-old male presented to the E.D. due to 1-week history of left forearm swelling. This was his first episode, the swelling was increasing in size and pain. He applied herbal supplements to the swelling which caused it to collect in one area instead of being diffuse, otherwise, no medications were taken. The mass was not associated with fever or chills. Vitals: HR=71 RR=20 BP=100/70 T=36.6 C. PE was unremarkable other than what is seen in the photos, swelling of the forearm with mild erythema and tenderness.

Roses are best known as ornamental plants grown for their flowers in the garden and sometimes indoors. They have been also used for commercial perfumery and commercial cut flower crops. Some are used as landscape plants, for hedging and for other utilitarian purposes such as game cover and slope stabilization. They also have minor medicinal uses.
The rose hip, usually from R. canina, is used as a minor source of Vitamin C. The fruits of many species have significant levels of vitamins and have been used as a food supplement. Many roses have been used in herbal and folk medicines. Rosa chinensis has long been used in Chinese traditional medicine. This and other species have been used for stomach problems, and are being investigated for controlling cancer growth.
The long cultural history of the rose has led to it being used often as a symbol.
