Dermatological, ophthalmological, neurological and respiratory examinations, as well as spirometry,(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have demonstrated that dermoscopy improves accuracy in diagnosing pigmented and non-pigmented tumors. Recently, there has been increasing evidence that dermoscopy can also be useful in the diagnosis of some skin infections. OBJECTIVE We sought to describe the dermoscopic features of cutaneous leishmaniasis. METHOD Dermoscopic(More)
BACKGROUND Extensive cutaneous burns caused by alkylating chemical warfare agent sulfur mustard (SM) have been associated with the severe suppression of the immune system in humans. We aimed to study the association between late cutaneous and immunological complications of SM poisoning. METHODS Skin examination was performed on all SM-poisoned Iranian(More)
Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) is resistant to chemotherapy and carries a dismal prognosis particularly for the acute and lymphoma subtypes. Promising results were obtained with the combination of zidovudine and interferon-alpha. Chronic ATL has a relatively better outcome, but poor long-term survival is noted when patients are managed with a(More)
