C. trachomatis is an obligate intracellular pathogen. The infection cycle starts with the entry of an infectious particle (elementary body or EB) into an epithelial cell. The EB-laden(More)
BACKGROUND Phototherapy can be an option in unresponsive alopecia areata (AA); however, variable results have been reported with its use. We could not find literature of treatment with UVA-1 in AA. A study was designed to evaluate progressive dosimetry to determine the initial dose and its increments. METHODS Patients with unresponsive AA were recruited.(More)
Balloon cell melanoma (BCM) with metastasis is a rarely occurring neoplasia. The incidence of BCM is low, and hence, the frequency of these lesions presenting metastasis is even less frequent. This review exposes the balloon cell metastasis cases that have been published and a new case. These cases share the histopathological features but the location of(More)
Non-traumatic small bowel perforation is rare in adults but carries a high morbidity and mortality. The diagnosis is made on clinical suspicion, and the most common causes in developing countries are infectious diseases, being cytomegalovirus infection in immunocompromised patients the main etiology. We describe a patient with a recently diagnosed advanced(More)
