A number of different modalities of surgical treatment for axillary hidradenitis suppurativa have been suggested. This study compares three different methods of surgical excision. Fifty-nine patients (94 axillae) were treated over a 14-year period. There were 42 females and 17 males with an average age of 32 years (range 16-65 years). Twenty-six axillae had(More)
Isolated paralysis of the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve results in an asymmetrical smile with elevation of the lower lip on the affected side. We discuss the surgical options for its correction and present a series of 26 patients who underwent either botulinum toxin injection, anterior belly of digastric transfer or free extensor digitorum(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies from our group had identified c-myc oncoprotein expression as an important prognostic parameter in a series of retrospective studies of primary and metastatic melanoma and other variants of this disease. This study set out to prospectively evaluate the prognostic significance of c-myc positivity in a consecutive series of primary(More)
The c-myc oncogene has been shown to be overexpressed in a number of malignancies, and may play an important role in the pathogenesis of malignant melanoma. Previous prognostic studies have demonstrated c-myc overexpression in a range of cutaneous melanomas, and levels of c-myc oncoprotein expression have been shown to correlate with clinical outcome in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Interferons (IFN) are currently being used to treat melanoma, including some patients with uveal melanoma. IFN is thought to inhibit tumour growth through downregulation of the c-myc oncogene; the overexpression of which has been shown to be associated with resistance in cell lines. The aim of this study was to investigate the relation(More)
