Cutaneous manifestations of neonatal lupus without heart block: characteristics of mothers and children enrolled in a national registry.
TLDR
Future pregnancies should be monitored by serial echocardiograms, given the substantial risk for heart block and the influence of UV light, prognosis, and recurrence rates in subsequent pregnancies.
Elevated levels of interferon gamma, tumor necrosis factor alpha, interleukins 2, 4, and 5, but not interleukin 10, are present in recurrent aphthous stomatitis.
TLDR
Failure to suppress the inflammatory reaction initiated by trauma or other external stimuli, likely involving a functional deficiency of IL- 10 in the oral mucosa, appears to be important in the pathogenesis of RAS.
Rofecoxib‐Induced Instant Aquagenic Wrinkling of the Palms
TLDR
The rofecoxib‐associated elevation in skin sodium may increase keratin water‐binding capacity and cause exaggerated aquagenic wrinkling of the skin, as occurs in cystic fibrosis.
Location of port-wine stains and the likelihood of ophthalmic and/or central nervous system complications.
TLDR
Port-wine stain involvement of the eyelids, bilateral distribution of the birthmark, and unilateral port-wine stains involving all three branches of the trigeminal nerve were associated with a significantly higher likelihood of having eye and/or CNS complications.
Human herpesvirus 6 is present in lesions of Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
TLDR
The presence of a virus alone does not establish a causal role in the disease, it supports the possibility of an etiologic relationship and underscores the need for further investigation of the potential HHV-6-mediated pathogenesis of LCH.
Initial lesion size as a predictive factor in determining the response of port-wine stains in children treated with the pulsed dye laser.
TLDR
When considering treatment for facial port-wine stains with pulsed dye lasers, it is important to consider not only the age of the child at the beginning of treatments, but also the initial size of the lesion.
Color Textbook of Pediatric Dermatology
TLDR
This practical, clinical textbook of pediatric dermatology written to aid the physician in diagnosing and treating common and uncommon skin diseases in neonates, infants, children and adolescents discusses subjects such as drug eruptions, hair disorders, nail disorders and sun sensitivity.
The Endotoxin‐induced Coagulant Activity of Human Monocytes
TLDR
The results indicate that the monocyte is the cell primarily responsible for the endotoxininduced coagulant activity of mixed leucocyte suspensions, the small amount of activity demonstrated in PMN neutrophil and in lymphocyte suspensions at high cell concentrations being accounted for by monocyte contamination of less than 1%.
