BACKGROUND Aquagenic acrokeratoderma (AA) is a rare condition with female predilection that occurs after brief water exposure and disappears minutes to an hour after drying. The pathogenesis remains unclear. METHODS Four Chinese patients with AA were reported and analyzed. RESULTS There were 2 males and 2 females (age range: 14-33 years) who presented(More)
AIM To evaluate the effects of tanshinone IIA (Tan IIA), a lipophilic diterpene from the Chinese herb Salvia miltiorrhiza, on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in rabbits. METHODS LPS-induced DIC model was made in adult male New Zealand rabbits by continuous intravenous infusion of LPS (0.5 mg/kg) via marginal(More)
Acral persistent papular mucinosis is a rare subtype of localized lichen myxedematosus. It shows symmetric, asymptomatic, chronic, ivory to flesh-colored, 2-5 mm sized papules arranged on the dorsa of the hands and extensor aspects of the distal forearms. Thirty-two cases including two from China, appear to fit the proposed diagnostic criteria. We report a(More)
OBJECTIVE Erythromelalgia is a rare clinical syndrome characterized by episodic attacks of burning pain, erythema, and increased temperature, primarily affecting the extremities, and in rare instances, involving the ear, face, neck, and the scrotum. The dermatoscopic features of erythromelalgia in a case with solely facial involvement have never been(More)
INTRODUCTION Quercetin is widely distributed in plants and has been reported to have effects of anti-inflammation and anti-thrombosis. In this study, we evaluated the protective effect of quercetin on LPS-induced experimental DIC in rabbits, and tried to clarify its mechanism against DIC. MATERIALS AND METHODS LPS-induced DIC model in rabbits was(More)
Interdigital ulcer is an exceptionally rare condition while erosio interdigitalis blastomycetica is common for candidiasis. Four Chinese patients with Candida interdigital ulcers were reported. The exudates were examined directly and cultured for fungi. Skin biopsies were stained with haematoxylin-eosin and periodic acid Schiff. There were a man and three(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether atractylenolide Ⅰ (ATL-Ⅰ) has protective effect on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in vivo and in vitro, and explore whether NF-κB signaling pathway is involved in ATL-Ⅰ treatment. METHODS New Zealand white rabbits were injected with LPS through marginal ear vein over a period(More)
