I said to the nurse Zinaida Yakovlevna: “Look, look what he has on his hips: bruises like five spread fingers, as though somebody took him with two hands.”
Я говорю этой, как её, фельдшерице, Зинаиде Яковлевне: “Ты посмотри, говорю, посмотри, у него на бёдрах – как будто двумя руками брали, пять растопыренных пальцев, аж синяки.”
Probably, these were so-called "Mongolian blue spots" (very common congenital birthmarks with irregular shape, discovered on and named after Mongolians and prevalent among East Asians, Native Americans, and East Africans). Multiple spots can covers lower back, the buttocks, sides, and shoulders. Among those who are not aware of the background of the Mongolian spots, it may sometimes be mistaken for a bruise.
