Adipose tissue is not simply a store of excess energy, but also secretes a variety of proteins into circulating blood that influence systemic metabolism. These include tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha), plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1), leptin, resistine and adiponectin. These are collectively known as adipocytokines. Adiponectin (also(More)
We report the case of a 52 year old man who was hospitalized within a context of a persistent deterioration of his general condition. He was suspected of having a chronic inflammatory colitis.

Eruptive seborrheic keratoses (ESK) are rare in dermatology. They are usually inflammatory in nature and may be encountered as Leser-Trélat sign. ESK may also be simultaneously observed with hepatic angiomas, chemotherapy, segmental neurofibromatosis, HIV or erythrodermic pityriasis rubra pilaris, psoriasis, and drug eruption. ESK may be transient and(More)
The TNFalpha antagonists, including adalimumab, etanercept and infliximab, represent a class of anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive drugs. Although cutaneous adverse effects are uncommon, they are varied. There is no particular risk profile to develop cutaneous adverse effects. The principal acute side effects are injection site reactions and pruritus.(More)
