Several unusual clinical presentations of bullous pemphigoid have been described such as localized, vesicular, vegetating, nodular, and sine bulla pemphigoid. Patients with erythroderma who fulfill diagnostic criteria for bullous pemphigoid and in whom bullae develop have been reported. We describe a patient with exfoliative erythroderma without any(More)
The evolutionary responses of infectious pathogens often have ruinous consequences for the control of disease spread in the population. Drug resistance is a well-documented instance that is generally driven by the selective pressure of drugs on both the replication of the pathogen within hosts and its transmission between hosts. Management of drug(More)
Vernonia herbacea (Vell.) Rusby (Asteraceae) is a perennial herb native to the cerrado vegetation of tropical areas in Brazil, which accumulates inulin in the underground reserve organs. The aim of this paper was to determine whether the inulin extracted from V. herbacea could replace commercial inulin for the measurement of glomerular filtration rate(More)
Coumarin concentrations that inhibited growth of Pythium sp. rapidly decreased the rate of incorporation of [14C]glucose into the mycelium. Coumarin also reduced drastically the carbohydrate and protein content of the cytoplasm and, to a lesser extent, the amino acid content and cell wall fraction. Enzymes related to the metabolism of cell wall(More)
