The present study was designed to assess the hemodynamic conditions, by means of impedance cardiography methods, and the relation existing between vascular reactivity to isometric stress (isometric handgrip test) and the day/night blood pressure variations, estimated by ABPM. Fifty unselected untreated non-obese EEH adult subjects (WHO class I) with a(More)
AGS: Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome CTCL: cutaneous T-cell lymphoma SAMHD1: SAM domain and HD domaincontaining protein 1 SAMS: stroke, aneurysm, moyamoya, and stenosis SLE: systemic lupus erythematosus INTRODUCTION Mutations in the SAMHD1 (SAM domain and HD domainecontaining protein 1) gene are implicated in SAMS (stroke, aneurysm, moyamoya, and stenosis)(More)
Head and neck cancer most often requires a multimodality approach to treatment that includes the use of radiotherapy. Unfortunately, radiation treatment can cause significant locoregional adverse effects with the particularly debilitating sequelae of late pathologic fracture. We aimed to define comprehensive metrics that will allow us to evaluate the(More)
Plasma fibrinolytic activity and tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) were defective in response to venous stasis in five out of ten patients with peripheral occlusive artery disease. Discontinuous infusions of iloprost, a stable synthetic analogue of prostacyclin, restored a normal fibrinolytic response in all five patients but did not induce a(More)
Fig 1. Axillary eccrinehidrocystomas. Involving thepatient’s bilateral axillae are dozens of confluent, smooth, yellowto flesh-colored papules. INTRODUCTION Hidrocystomas are small, thin-walled, benign cystic growths of the sweat glands, typically found on the face, and most often occurring on the periorbital and malar skin. These lesions may proliferate(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe the reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) features of focal dermal mucinosis (FDM). The entity clinically and dermatoscopically mimics other diagnostic entities, most notably nonpigmented basal cell carcinoma. We describe two cases that highlight the dermatoscopic, RCM and histopathological attributes of FDM. RCM(More)
We report a case of cutaneous plasmacytomas developing in a patient with a 7-month history of progressive multiple myeloma refractory to bortezomib and combination chemotherapy. When involving the skin, plasmacytomas typically arise in the setting of multiple myeloma as contiguous extensions from underlying bony disease. More rarely, cutaneous plasmacytomas(More)
