RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To expose students in the premedical years to imaging and its indications, to enhance their understanding of pathologic processes by allowing direct visualization, and to teach physical diagnosis through an integrated, multispecialty approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 166 second-year medical students participated in a(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have suggested that a series of low-energy, single-pass ablative laser resurfacing micropeels can reduce photoaging with decreased downtime. This randomized, prospective single-blinded trial sought to determine the ideal settings of sequential erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) laser treatments that maximize efficacy and(More)
The survival outlook in advanced mycosis fungoides (MF) is poor. Autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants (SCT) have been shown, in small case series and case reports, to have the potential for long-term remission or to alter disease course. Allogeneic SCT is thought to have a curative potential secondary to a graft-versus-lymphoma (GVL) effect. A(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW As the number and uses for targeted therapies such as epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors (EGFRIs) increase, so does the need to recognize and treat the dermatologic side-effects of these agents. Although agents such as gefitinib, erlotinib, cetuximab, lapatinib, and panitumumab have less systemic side-effects than traditional(More)

BACKGROUND The authors performed a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on interventions for any stage of typical mycosis fungoides (MF). They searched electronic databases including the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Medline, Embase, and the Latin American and Caribbean Health Science Information database, and included(More)
Both infantile hemangiomas (IH) and congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are common birthmarks that affect approximately 4% to 5% of infants and 1% of newborns, respectively. No previous association has been established between these birthmarks. We report a series of 6 patients who were remarkable for either the proximity or extent of anatomic involvement of(More)
Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is the primary cause of non-relapse-related morbidity and mortality in patients who undergo hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Dermatologic manifestations are common in both acute and chronic GVHD. In the acute setting, skin involvement often provides the first indication of GVHD and may progress to erythroderma and(More)
PURPOSE Retinal prosthetic devices that use microelectrode arrays to stimulate retinal nerve cells may provide a viable treatment for degenerative retinal diseases. Current devices are based on electrical field-effect stimulation of remaining functional neural elements. However, the distance between target neurons and electrodes limits the potential density(More)
