A 7-year-old girl had fever, arthralgia, and a mild cutaneous vaculitis with papules, nodules, and livedo. A biopsy specimen of a papule showed lymphocytic small-vessel vasculitis, with some atypical lymphocytic nuclei. Splenomegaly developed, and results of subsequent studies supported a diagnosis of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, with atypical(More)
The lupus band test is widely regarded as a sensitive test in the diagnosis of lupus erythematosus, particularly as applied to cutaneous lesions. It is commonly said to be positive in 90% or more of lesions in discoid and systemic lupus. Other criteria for diagnosis are often not specified in previous studies. This and the subjective element of(More)
A man who had been circumcised in adulthood developed, in sequence, balanitis xerotica obliterans (lichen sclerosus et atrophicus), multiple dysplastic keratoses, and a superficial, well-differentiated squamous-cell carcinoma on the glans penis. Squamous-cell carcinoma that develops after circumcision in adulthood tends to be more aggressive in biologic(More)
Forty-six patients with clinical and histologic criteria of bullous pemphigoid, and on whom direct immunofluorescence testing had been done, were analyzed by anatomic region of the lesions and by the region from which the immunofluorescence biopsy specimens were taken. One third of immunofluorescence tests from the lower extremities were negative, compared(More)
Two patients with discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) had lesions exhibiting prominent atrophy and telangiectasia. At the time of biopsy, the skin specimens were grossly mucinous. Light and immunofluorescence microscopy findings confirmed the diagnosis of DLE in both cases. Abundant mucin deposition throughout the dermis was also seen microscopically in both(More)
This study examined the effect of manipulating the motivational climate on achievement goal orientations, satisfaction/boredom, and perceived competence in physical education (PE). Participants were 40 English students (M age = 15.9, SD = 0.51) participating either in an experimental group that included a series of highly task involving lessons, based on(More)
Seventy-one patients with discoid lupus erythematosus were studied for anatomic regional variations in the lupus band test. The test was positive in 82% of biopsies from the scalp, face, neck, and upper extremity. Only three out of fourteen biopsies (21%) from the trunk were positive. Discoid lupus erythematosus could be confirmed or strongly suspected in(More)
