OBJECTIVES To compare the effect of graded physiotherapeutic training of the rotator cuff versus arthroscopic subacromial decompression in patients with subacromial impingement. METHODS Randomised controlled trial with 12 months' follow up in a hospital setting. Ninety consecutive patients aged 18 to 55 years were enrolled. Symptom duration was between(More)
BACKGROUND Quantification of quality of life (QoL) related to disease severity is important in patients with atopic eczema (AE), because the assessment provides additional information to the traditional objective clinical scoring systems. OBJECTIVES To measure health-related QoL (HRQoL) in patients with AE; to analyse discriminant, divergent and(More)
BACKGROUND Psoriasis is characterized by infiltration with mononuclear cells. Especially activated memory CD4+ T cells are critical in the pathogenesis. Interaction between the CD4 receptor and the major histocompatibility complex class II molecule is important for T-cell activation. OBJECTIVE To test safety and efficacy of a fully human monoclonal(More)
BACKGROUND Patient-oriented medicine is an emerging concept, encouraged by the World Health Organization, to greater involvement of the patient in the management of chronic diseases. The Patient-Oriented SCORing Atopic Dermatitis (PO-SCORAD) index is a self-assessment score allowing the patient to comprehensively evaluate the actual course of atopic(More)
PURPOSE The aim of our study was to evaluate the potential of real-time spatial compound imaging (RTSCI) in dermatology. MATERIALS AND METHODS An ATL 5000 SonoCT equipped with compact linear 15-7 MHz and linear 12-5 MHz transducers was obtained for skin visualization in a group of dermatological patients with various skin diseases. RESULTS Thirty-four(More)
Acne is generally considered to be a disease of adolescence. However 20% of newborns have acne neonatorum, which may to be overlooked because it is usually mild and transient. Acne can also be seen in infants and children, where the skin lesions are normally more severe. We describe a case of a ten-month-old boy with severe acne without other underlying(More)
BACKGROUND Quantification of skin diseases can be carried out in many ways. Clinical scores are widely used in atopic eczema (AE), and noninvasive instruments are a relevant supplement. OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to validate 5 noninvasive instruments in quantification of AE severity. METHODS In all, 101 patients with AE and 30 control subjects were(More)
Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is more frequent in immunocompromised patients, for example, patients with organ transplants. A number of studies have been published from different countries that present a similar picture of tumors in transplant patients. In addition, the behavior of these tumors is often more aggressive in this group of high-risk patients.(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have suggested that women overreport symptoms in nondermatologic disease. Gender-dependent differences in patients' perception of dermatologic disease are poorly described. The description of possible gender differences in morbidity in a skin disease with comparable prevalence in men and women may therefore provide relevant data. (More)
