Electrical current has been recommended for use on chronic wounds; however, the ability of this modality to improve healing of various types of chronic ulcers, arterial, venous, mixed arterial and venous ulcers, diabetic, and pressure ulcers is not well established. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of frequency rhytmic electrical(More)
The incidence of all forms of cutaneous tuberculosis, including lupus vulgaris (the most common form) decreased progressively in developed countries during the twentieth century, this change being attributed to improved living standards and specific therapy. Despite the decrease in cutaneous tuberculosis, some cases are still found and correct diagnosis and(More)
Acrokeratosis paraneoplastica of Bazex is rare condition, characterized with scaly hyperkeratotic psoriasiform plaques on acral parts of body (helices, nose, and malar and acral surfaces), and in later stages propagation to the limbs and trunk.This syndrome is distinct marker for different neoplastic conditions, predominantly squamous cell carcinoma of the(More)
High frequency ultrasound examination of the skin lesions is a relatively new, increasingly important additional diagnostic method in dermatology. Using 20-MHz ultrasound, we have analysed eight skin lesions clinically suspected and subsequently pathohistologically verified as malignant melanoma. The echograms of the examined lesions showed in dermis, under(More)
Basosquamous carcinoma of the skin is a relatively rare cutaneous neoplasm that has significant metastatic potential and a metastatic rate greater than that of basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. We describe the use of lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymph node biopsy in a 63-year-old man after identification of basosquamous carcinoma. Sentinel lymph(More)
BACKGROUND Many current guidelines provide detailed evidence-based recommendations for acne treatment. OBJECTIVE To create consensus-based, simple, easy-to-use algorithms for clinical acne treatment in daily office-based practice and to provide checklists to assist in determining why a patient may not have responded to treatment and what action to take.(More)
Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma represents less than 1% of all lymphomas, but is more common in Asia and South America. We present a 67-year-old female with a 10-month history of four reddish-blue firm and painful nodules in the parietal region of the head, ranging in size from 1 to 5 cm. Two nodules were taken for biopsy, which showed atypical lymphoid cells(More)
It is a case study of a 62-yr-old female with crusted (Norwegian) scabies, which appeared during her treatment with systemic and topical corticosteroid therapy, under the diagnosis of erythroderma. In the same time, the patient had been suffered from hypothyoidism, and her skin changes were misdiagnosed, because it was thought that they are associated with(More)
The fact that the skin is the most visible organ makes us aware of the ageing process every minute. The use of plant extracts and herbs has its origins in ancient times. Chronological and photo-ageing can be easily distinguished clinically, but they share important molecular features. We tried to gather the most interesting evidence based on facts about(More)
