Human infants are frequently hospitalized due to infection with the paramyxovirus respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). However, very little is known about the neonatal response to paramyxoviral infection. Here, a neonatal model of paramyxoviral infection is developed using the mouse pathogen Sendai virus (SeV). Adult mice infected with SeV developed a(More)
Recent guidelines from the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) have been proposed for the assessment of "high-risk" cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCCs). Though different in perspective, both guidelines share the common goals of trying to identify "high-risk" cSCCs and improving patient outcomes.(More)
We report a 2-month-old boy with a painful ulcerated hemangioma on the lower mucosal lip extending to the vermillion border that caused feeding difficulty. It was successfully treated with topical brimonidine 0.2% and timolol 0.5%, a combination selective α2 -adrenergic agonist and nonselective β-blocker. After 6 weeks of treatment, the lesion(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common chronic pediatric skin disease, and it can profoundly affect a family's quality of life.

BACKGROUND Skin cancer commonly occurs on areas that are salient to body image perception (i.e., head and neck). Patients with head and neck skin cancer (HNSC) may experience negative body image perceptions related to their disease, which is concerning, given the numerous negative sequelae of poor body image. However, there are no existing disease-specific(More)
We present the case of a 76-year-old man with gastroduodenal intussusception secondary to a gastric hyperplastic polyp. Intussusception in the adult population occurs infrequently. Our patient presented with gastroduodenal intussusception, which is very uncommon and accounts for <10% of all types of intussusception. This case is unique in that partial(More)
