BACKGROUND AND DESIGN The frequency of melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancer is increasing rapidly in the United States. However, the linkage of these cancers to sun exposure has been questioned because of differences in anatomic site distribution. To obtain insights into the development of these skin cancers, we examined reports of 132 patients with(More)
Fanconi anemia (FA) is a recessive disorder associated with diverse congenital anomalies, progressive bone marrow failure, and a marked predisposition to develop cancer. At the cellular level, FA is characterized by a prolonged G(2) phase in proliferating cells and a marked hypersensitivity to both the cytotoxic and the clastogenic effects of agents which(More)
Despite the documented importance of the protein hormone relaxin in reproduction in various mammalian species, the role of relaxin in human reproduction is poorly understood, largely because of the lack of studies in women or in suitable non-human primate models. Here we describe the establishment of a non-human primate model of early human pregnancy and(More)
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a chronic, autoimmune vesiculobullous disease that frequently occurs in the elderly population. Previous epidemiological studies have suggested an association between BP and neurological diseases; some studies, however, showed conflicting results. This study aimed to investigate if patients with BP have significantly higher risks(More)
We examined histochemically and immunohistochemically the distribution of B- and Z-DNA in the epithelium and terminally differentiating dog lens fiber cells. On the basis of anti-DNA antibody reactivity, qualitative and quantitative data on B- and Z-DNA in cells were determined. Anti-B-DNA immunoreactivity gradually declined throughout nucleated fibers,(More)
Leishmaniasis is an emerging disease in HIV-infected persons; visceral leishmaniasis is an AIDS-defining opportunistic infection. The parasite that causes this infection is usually transmitted by the sandfly and occasionally by nonsterile needles among intravenous drug users. Diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis (DCL) is a rare anergic variant of leishmanial(More)
Cutaneous involvement by myeloid leukemic cells is an unusual phenomenon. Clinical manifestations vary from erythematous papules to plum-colored plaques and nodules that may become purpuric and ulcerate. The definitive diagnosis of myeloid leukemia cutis requires the analysis of biopsy specimens using immunohistochemical staining to determine the expression(More)
Erythroderma, or generalized exfoliative dermatitis, is a disease characterized by erythema and scaling of greater than 90% of the body's surface. The resultant dysmetabolism is potentially life threatening. A detailed history is to identify and treat the underlying cause of this dermatitis. We present two cases of erythroderma in African patients and(More)
Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), or Mucha-Habermann disease (MHD), is a cutaneous disorder evident with crops of erythematous macules and papules, usually on the trunk and flexural areas of the extremities. Its etiology remains unknown. PLEVA is speculated to be an inflammatory reaction triggered by certain infectious agents, an(More)
Medications should be employed with caution in women of childbearing age who are pregnant or considering pregnancy. Compared to oral or parenteral agents, topical medications have limited systemic absorption and are deemed safer. However, their safety profile must be assessed cautiously due to the limited available data. In this article, we aggregate human(More)
