Ichthyoses are a common group of keratinization disorders. A non-inflammatory generalized persistent skin desquamation is observed. It is characterized by increased cell turnover, thickening of the stratum corneum and functional changes of sebaceous and sweat glands. All of these favor fungal proliferation. Dermatophytes may infect skin, hair and nails(More)
The genus Vibrio is a member of the family Vibrionaceae, and among their disease-causing species, Vibrio vulnificus, a lactose-positive gram-negative bacillus, is one of the most virulent pathogen of the noncholerae vibrios. We describe the case of a 39-year-old male patient, who was using immunosuppressive therapy, admitted to the hospital for liver(More)
INTRODUCTION Influenza A (H1N1) virus was first reported on April 2009 and, since then, several studies have reported the characteristics concerning the clinical presentation and pulmonary involvement. However, accurate information about the acute kidney injury (AKI) and kidney histopathological findings in these patients remain scarce. OBJECTIVE To(More)
We report a case of adult-onset Still's disease in a female patient with fever, myalgia, vanishing rash and bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy, diagnosed after extensive workup to exclude other rheumatic, infectious and neoplastic diseases. The patient initially responded to corticosteroid therapy, but progressed to increased lymph nodes size that when(More)
BACKGROUND Colorectal cancer has an important genetic component. Microsatellites are considered phenotypic markers of prognosis, therapeutic response and identify patients with mutations in DNA repair genes. AIM To evaluate the molecular profile of tumors underwent to transanal endoscopic microsurgery-TEM in surgical treatment of rectal cancer. METHOD(More)

The present article describes the use of thioglycolic acid peelings in Schamberg's disease, with histological and photographic analyses. A 43-year-old female patient with clinical and histological diagnoses of Schamberg's(More)
Introduction. The communication between the trachea and esophagus is called tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). It can occurs as a congenital malformation (0.025-0.05%) (in particular related to the esophageal atresia) or can occurs as an acquired pathology. Endoscopic evaluation is the gold standard for the diagnosis of TEF and must be performed, in presence(More)
Imaging findings from a single case of disseminated infection with Fusarium are presented. This common fungus has been reported as a rare pathogen to the immunocompromised. Disseminated foci were identified on a Tc-99m HMPAO labeled WBC study. Two foci were localized to the proximal tibia using MRI. In this case, imaging was more sensitive to the extent of(More)
