We compared several such assays with a panel of 88 specimens from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients with Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) (current-KS patients; n = 30), HIV-infected patients who later developed KS (later-KS patients; n = 13), HIV-infected(More)

Four of these patients had, on other occasions, suffered from typical polymorphic light eruption. The clinical features, histological changes, and results of phototesting suggest that juvenile spring eruption of the ears is a(More)
The coexistence of disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP) with other variants of porokeratosis is rare. We report three such cases: DSAP with porokeratosis of Mibelli; DSAP with linear porokeratosis; and DSAP occurring in the mother of a girl with linear porokeratosis. Although different areas of skin and different family members usually(More)
The growth characteristics of human herpesvirus 7 strain SB (HHV-7 (SB)) were studied in human umbilical cord blood lymphocyte (CBL) cultures. The virus has approximately a 4-day growth cycle, as measured by immunofluorescence analysis, quantitation of the relative viral DNA concentration, and examination of infected cells by electron microscopy on(More)
