The study was performed to analyse the spectrum of dermatomycoses in southwest Poland during the period 2003-2007. A total of 10,486 patients were investigated for fungal skin infections by means of native specimen and cultivating procedures. Skin scrapings, plucked hairs and nail clippings were examined and identified by direct microscopy and culture. From(More)
INTRODUCTION Chemokines play an important role in tumor growth, invasion and metastasis. The CXCR4/CXCL12 axis has been implicated in development of both solid tumors and hematological malignancies and is also relevant in the pathogenesis of the most common primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, mycosis fungoides (MF). AIM To evaluate the expression of CXCR4(More)
Trichophyton rubrum, an anthropophilic dermatophyte fungus, is the predominant causative agent of superficial skin infections in human population. There are only scanty reports on drug susceptibility profiling of T. rubrum. Neither mechanisms for drug resistance development nor correlation between in vitro drug susceptibility and in vivo response to(More)
INTRODUCTION Data about genetic alterations in mycosis fungoides (MF) are limited and their significance not fully elucidated. The aim of the study was to explore the expression of various oncogenes in MF and to assess their influence on the disease course. MATERIAL AND METHODS Skin biopsies from 27 MF patients (14 with early MF and 13 with advanced(More)
Trichophyton rubrum is the most significant agent of dermatomycoses worldwide, primarily causing tinea pedis and tinea unguium. PCR analysis of tandemly repetitive subelements (TRS) within the rDNA nontranscribed spacer region is a major tool for molecular typing of T. rubrum. The aim of this study was to investigate the stability of TRS PCR patterns by(More)
The spectrum of disease caused by parvovirus B19 infection ranges from asymptomatic to a serious disease. Parvovirus B19 plays a role in the pathomechanism of gloves and socks syndrome, erythema infectiosum, acute polyarthralgia, aplastic crisis in persons with hemolytic anemia, and birth defects. Gloves and socks syndrome has an acute febrile course.(More)

Darier disease (follicular dyskeratosis) is a rare genodermatosis determined by an autosomal dominant gene with variable penetration, characterized by a symmetrical eruption of hyperkeratotic papules with predilection to the seborrheic areas of the body. Unilateral, focal form is the one of the rare type of the Darier disease. Two clinical and genetical(More)
