Dermal Titanium Dioxide Deposits in Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia – A Pilot Study

1. To the Editor Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA) was initially described in 6 patients in 1994 as a “frontal variant of lichen planopilaris [1]. Considered a primary lymphocytic chronic cicatricial alopecia [2,3], it was a relatively uncommon diagnosis following its reporting, however in the past 15 years it has begun to be seen with increasing …

The Soaring Increase of Resistant Microorganisms Demands Immediate Action. Solutions are Available

1. Abstract Clinical environments provide an ideal reservoir for the growth, proliferation, and transmission of pathogenic organisms. Surfaces in hospitals e.g. hospital furniture, ECG lead wires and other cables, push buttons of infusion pumps, control knobs of ventilation machines, textiles as well as implantable biomaterials like central venous catheters, urologic catheters, endotracheal tubes are contaminated …

Skin Lesions – An Unusual Expression of Impending Multiorgan Failure

Summary An 89-year-old woman was referred to the hospital because of multiple red spots on the soles of her feet. She had been healthy until 3 months prior when she suffered a thrombotic cerebrovascular incident. Treatment with clopidogrel had been started. She was cared for in a nursing home. On admission, the patient was alert …

In Silico Approach to Predict Indian Pharmacogenomics Variants Based on Analysis of Linkage Disequilibrium (LD) and Expression Quantitative Trait Locus (eQTL)

1. Abstract The drug response can vary based on ethnicity as it arises from differences in genetic makeup among the individuals and is associated with drug action, metabolism and action. The efficacy of drugs can be determined by genetic variation and may also lead to adverse effects. The drug responsive variants (Single nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs) …

Diffuse Bone Marrow Involvement of Gastric Cancer Diagnosed by Positron Emission Tomography Computed Tomography

1. Abstract Bone metastases from gastric adenocarcinoma are rare, accounting for less than 2% of cases. Bone marrow (BM) metastases are even less frequent. For those patients suspected for bone and bone marrow metastases, a biopsy is normally the method of choice for diagnosis. In our case, bone and BM metastases were diagnosed using PET-CT, …

Cervical Collar

1. Abstract Any patient who arrives in our environment with a cervical collar, globally or partially immobilized by this and/or other systems should suggest to us, from the outset, an observational and respectful care attitude at first, before making decisions to free them from the containment procedures they may be carrying.

A Novel GNAS1 Mutation with an Atypical Albright Hereditary Osteodystrophy Phenotype with Normal Weight and Cognition

1. Introduction A 10-year-old female presented for evaluation of short stature, with height <3% since age 3 years. On initial exam: height at 1%, BMI at 6%, with arm span 5.4cm <height. No goiter. Hands were small with short #4 and #5 metacarpals. Broad and short thumbs (Figure 1). Negative Madelung. Big toes were broad …

Voxel-Based Analysis of I-123 IMP by SPECT/CT in Patients with Uveal Malignant Melanoma: A Comparison with ROI Analysis

1. Abstract 1.1. Purpose: To estimate I-123 N-isopropyl-p-iodoamphetamine (IMP) accumulation using a voxel-based analysis method for the differentiation of malignant melanoma from other ocular lesions. 1.2. Materials and Methods: Fifty patients (53 examinations) with malignant melanoma (n = 30) or benign pigmented lesions or tumors other malignant melanoma (n = 20) were analyzed. Voxelbased analysis …
