BACKGROUND Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the skin of the face and the eyes. Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is characterized by flushing, oedema and telangiectasia. Patients with rosacea demonstrate elevated densities of Demodex mites in their skin compared with controls. A bacterium (Bacillus oleronius) isolated from Demodex(More)
the parotid gland has been reported. As PLCNA is considered to be a type of isolated plasmacytoma, such association seems to be relevant. We hypothesize that growth factors and cytokines involved in CREST and other autoimmune diseases may interfere with extramedullary plasma cell proliferation, i.e. in cutaneous amyloidosis. Appropriate reassurance should(More)
This video details the development of an intelligent outdoor Guide robot. The main objective is to deploy an innovative robotic guide which is not only able to show information, but to react to the affective states of the users, and to offer location-based services using augmented reality. The scientific challenges concern autonomous outdoor navigation and(More)
Chromoblastomycosis is a rare, hard to diagnose disease that arises mostly in the tropics, especially in humid areas, affecting mainly males and rural workers. It is characterized by verrucous plaques or nodules that are slow growing and attributed to infection by different pigmented (dematiaceous) fungi. Usually the infection develops after injury, being(More)
BACKGROUND Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory eruption of the face that may significantly impair patients' lives, leading to considerable emotional distress and behavioral withdrawal from normal social interactions. The pulsed dye laser is a device that selectively targets oxyhemoglobin with proved efficacy in the treatment of vascular lesions, especially at(More)
Collision tumor is a term used to refer to the association of various types of tumors in time and space. Despite most of them not being clinically relevant, sometimes there is a union between a benign lesion and a malignant one. The clinical diagnosis in these cases is usually extremely difficult, particularly if one of the lesions is pigmented. Dermoscopy(More)

We present the case of a 84 year-old man from north Portugal with chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia (diagnosed 2 years ago), treated with erythropoietin and hydroxyurea. The patient was referred to our department due to brown macules, papules and patches with a smooth surface and whitish scaling, located in the lower limbs that had appeared two months ago.(More)
Cutaneous infections with the human papilloma virus, despite being almost always asymptomatic, can induce slowgrowing lesions knowed as warts that can remain subclinical for long periods of time. There are several therapeutical options namely keratolytics, retinoids, imiquimod, cryotherapy, electrosurgery, lasers and classic surgery, but none has antiviral(More)
