Molecular Genetics of Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus (Human Herpesvirus 8) Epidemiology and Pathogenesis
A critical literature review explores the pathogenic potential of these genes within the framework of current knowledge of the basic herpesvirology of KSHV, including the relationships between viral genotypic variation and the four clinicoepidemiologic forms of Kaposi's sarcoma. Expand
Human herpes simplex virus infections: epidemiology, pathogenesis, symptomatology, diagnosis, and management.
The epidemiology, pathogenesis, and diagnostic features of HSV infections are reviewed, providing the clinician with an up-to-date understanding of the available management strategies for mucocutaneous HSV-induced disease. Expand
Update on Kaposi's sarcoma and other HHV8 associated diseases. Part 1: epidemiology, environmental predispositions, clinical manifestations, and therapy.
If HAART is able to prevent spreading of KS, local therapy of KS may become an essential component of patient management and rationales and graduated treatment algorithms for local and systemic therapy in patients with KS are presented to appropriately meet the challenges of this extraordinary neoplasm. Expand
Scabies: a ubiquitous neglected skin disease.
This article reviews scabies management strategies in developed countries and resource-poor communities as well as typical complications, including the emergence of resistance and drug-related adverse events, and newer treatments such as ivermectin are also discussed. Expand

Cutaneous metastases represent an opportunity to detect a potentially treatable cancer before other evidence of it is present, to modify therapy as appropriate to the tumor stage, or possibly to use the cutaneous lesion as a source of easily accessible tumor cells for specific therapy. Expand
Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa: a comprehensive review
Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa is a rare form of vasculitis relating to small‐to‐medium‐sized arteries that is distinct from systemic polyarteritris nodosa in that it lacks significant internal organ involvement. Expand
