The pulsed dye laser is a device that selectively targets oxyhemoglobin with proved efficacy in the treatment of vascular lesions, especially at(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.

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)
An 84-year-old man with keloids since early adulthood, was referred to our clinic because of the recent appearance of erythematous, tumid plaques upon the old keloids and upon uninvolved skin. The plaques were located mainly on the trunk in a linear distribution. On the back there were round, nodular, erythematous nodules and plaques, with central crusts,(More)
Tumor necrosis factor alfa (TNF-α) is a cytokine with a central role in inflammation. Its blockade can be achieved by using specific inhibitors like etanercept. At present, etanercept is approved for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and psoriasis treatment. However, it has been used with(More)
