A retrospective study of allograft bone retrieved from 401 donors between January 1987 and March 1996 was performed to determine the incidence of bacterial contamination. Contamination according to type of donor (live, multiorgan, cadaveric) was also determined. Live donors donating a femoral head demonstrated a contamination rate of 13%; multiorgan donors,(More)
To the Editor: As an osteopathic pediatrician who has used osteopathic manipulative treatment for patients with infantile colic, it was a pleasure to read about the research of Hayden and Mullinger1 that was summarized by Michael A. Seffinger, DO,2 in the May installation of “The Somatic Connection.” Hayden and Mullinger1 focused on the use of osteopathic(More)
We report on the cases of two patients in whom linear perilesional hypopigmentation and atrophy developed after intralesional injection of corticosteroids for treatment of keloids. Evaluation of our patients and the previously reported cases showed that perilesional linear atrophy or hypopigmentation (or both) is a distinct complication after intralesional(More)
A garment worker developed erythema multiforme concurrently with allergic contact dermatitis of the hands. Patch testing revealed sensitivity to nickel (which was present in her scissors) and to paraphenylenediamine (a commercial dye). During the course of the patch-test evaluation, both the hand dermatitis and the erythema multiforme became exacerbated.(More)
From 1950 to 1982, fifteen patients were seen at the Mayo Clinic with a diagnosis of sclerodermoid changes of porphyria cutanea tarda. Fourteen patients had changes similar to scleroderma limited to the skin, and one patient had scleroderma-like skin changes accompanied by visceral abnormalities. Both light-exposed and unexposed areas of the body were(More)
Meniscal cysts are common lesions, but extensive bony changes arising from these cysts are exceedingly rare. These changes are usually erosive defects about the tibia. Dull pain with an associated mass are classic findings. Magnetic resonance imaging is useful in making the diagnosis and arthroscopic management yields excellent results. A 47-year-old man(More)
We report two sisters with granuloma annulare who possessed identical histocompatibility antigens. The occurrence of granuloma annulare in families and the demonstration of particular human lymphocyte antigens (HLA) with granuloma annulare may indicate that hereditarily predisposed individuals could develop this specific cell-mediated immune reaction in(More)
Of four patients with mycosis fungoides and monoclonal gammopathy, one died of multiple myeloma that developed 4 years after the mycosis fungoides. The other three had monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance. This association does not appear to occur with a high frequency in patients with mycosis fungoides than in the general population. However,(More)
We present two patients who developed granuloma annulare in the scars from previous herpes zoster. The development of granuloma annulare in herpes zoster scars may represent an atypical delayed hypersensitivity immune reaction to herpes zoster/varicella virus antigen(s) or a tissue antigen altered by the virus.
We present two unrelated patients with numerous infraocular milium-like lesions that histologically revealed syringoma with many overlying keratin cysts in the papillary dermis. A Fontana-Masson stain revealed no melanin-containing cells in the keratin cyst walls, suggesting that they originated from eccrine ductal structures. A classification of the(More)
