Ninety-four cervical biopsies from normal tissue to high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (SILs) were examined for the presence of intraepithelial Langerhans' cells and subpopulations of stromal macrophages/dendrocytes by immunohistochemistry using anti-S100,-L1, -CD68 and -factor XIIIa antibodies. Human papillomavirus (HPV) detection was performed in(More)
UNLABELLED ADAMTS2 belongs to the "ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif" (ADAMTS) family. Its primary function is to process collagen type I, II, III, and V precursors into mature molecules by excising the aminopropeptide. This process allows the correct assembly of collagen molecules into fibrils and fibers, which confers to connective(More)
Factor XIIIa-positive dendrocytes present at the periphery and inside epithelial neoplasms are an heterogeneous group of cells. They are subsets of mesenchymal cells, cancer-associated macrophages and antigen-presenting cells. Factor XIIIa, other tissue transglutaminases, α2-macroglobulin and tumour necrosis factor-α represent a complex network of mediators(More)
There is increasing awareness of the population about the risk of cutaneous melanoma. In recent years, some improvement was gained in the early recognition of clinical warning signs using dermoscopy. As a result, the number of puzzling cases exhibiting limited classical clues for malignancy are submitted to the dermatopathologist. Thus, the risk of(More)
BACKGROUND Melanotic schwannoma is a pigmented nerve tumor that may be located in the skin and express local aggressivity. This tumor may occur singly. It may also be part of the Carney complex which consists of various, but specific, tumors. OBJECTIVE We report two cases of subcutaneous melanotic schwannoma localized on the trunk in two men aged 37 and(More)
The recognition of the bacteria family Bartonellaceae , genus Bartonella has expanded during the past decade from the single Bartonella bacilliformis to 17 currently identified species (Table 1). At least six of these ( B. bacilliformis, B. henselae, B. quintana, B. elizabethae , B. clarridgeiae and B. vinsonni arupensis ) are responsible for human(More)
The therapeutic outcome of onychomycoses is uncertain. Comparative short-term efficacy studies on antifungals abound and report contradictory findings. Few unbiased follow-up studies have scrutinized the long-term outcome. Basically, none of the current antifungals can guarantee cure in all instances. In addition, relapses are not rare. The causes of(More)
Objective: Prevention of superficial mycoses remains a stubborn problem. The effect of antiseptics for that purpose is largely unknown. We studied the potential fungitoxic activity of povidone iodine (PVP-I) contained in wash solutions. Methods: The corneofungimetry bioassay was conducted using PVP-I at 1.33%, 2.5%, 4% and 7.5% as test products and four(More)
Onychomycosis is a frequent disorder that represents the most prevalent fungal infection, particularly among older individuals. Diverse fungi of the dermatophyte, non-dermatophyte mold and yeast families have been reported to be responsible for onychomycosis. The output from the pharmaceutical industry of new antifungals to treat onychomycosis has been(More)
The misdiagnosis of onychomycosis delays the proper treatment of the nail condition. Nail histomycology refers to the microscopic examination of histologic sections prepared from nail clippings for the purpose of detecting the presence of fungi. This laboratory method is the most sensitive procedure for the diagnosis of onychomycosis. It allows for the(More)
