Long-term follow up of patients with total hip arthroplasty (THA) revealed a marked deterioration of walking capacities in Charnley class B after postoperative year 4. We hypothesized that a specific group of patients, namely those with unilateral hip arthroplasty and an untreated but affected contralateral hip was responsible for this observation.(More)
Mycetomas are subacute or chronic infections usually localized on unprotected skin areas and caused by fungi or Actinomyces. We report the case of a patient who suffered a splinter injury on his wrist after a motor accident. Six months later a cutaneous abscess with Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans developed on his wrist. Complete healing was obtained(More)
The field of chronic venous disease (CVD) has suffered from a lack of precision in diagnosis. This deficiency has led to conflicting reports in studies of management of specific venous problems. It is believed that these conflicts would be resolved with precise pretreatment diagnosis and classification of each affected limb. Adoption of a single(More)
To investigate late sequelae of deep vein thrombosis, 223 consecutive patients, 148 men, 75 women, aged 61.5 +/- 14.7 years, with phlebographically documented unilateral deep vein thrombosis were reexamined 13 years after the acute event. 29 had an isolated calf vein thrombosis, 45 a 2-level- (calf an popliteal), 72 a 3-level- (calf, popliteal and femoral),(More)
We report a 2-year-old girl with a combination of the ectodermal dysplasia, ectrodactyly, cleft lip/palate (EEC) syndrome, distinctive hair abnormalities, scalp dermatitis and atopic disease. To our knowledge, this is the first report of scalp dermatitis in the EEC syndrome. Distinctive structural hair abnormalities shared by the syndromes of ectodermal(More)
We report the case of a 55-year-old patient with recurrent episodes of generalized pustulosis and febrile temperatures. Histological examination revealed subcorneal and spongiform pustules. After a 4 years' course acute exanthematous generalized pustulosis, induced by acetylsalicylic acid was diagnosed. Clinical features, differential diagnosis and(More)
BACKGROUND Corona phlebectatica (corona) is a clinical sign associated with chronic venous disorders but is not yet included in the CEAP classification. Our aim was to analyze the clinical and hemodynamic correlations of corona to determine its significance and potential usefulness in classification grading and systems such as the CEAP classification.
