There are several recent studies that propose search output clustering as an alternative representation method to ranked output. Users are provided with cluster representations instead of lists of titles and invited to make decisions on groups of documents. This paper discusses the diculties involved in representing clusters for usersÕ evaluation in a(More)
BACKGROUND Even though several case studies have reported a relationship between Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma (CTCL) and atopic diathesis, this association is still controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the actual presence of atopic status in CTCL patients. METHODS A total of 78 patients with both clinical and histological features typical(More)
BACKGROUND Giant condyloma acuminatum is a warty lesion that is characterized by its large size and propensity to infiltrate into deeper tissues contrasting with its microscopically benign pattern. It is proposed that giant condyloma represents an intermediate lesion between condyloma acuminatum and verrucous carcinoma. OBJECTIVE A primary therapeutic(More)
Mycosis fungoides is very rare in children. Hypopigmented lesions of this disease are usually observed in dark-skinned individuals and often show a T supressor CD8(+) phenotype. Two Caucasian children with predominantly hypopigmented lesions of mycosis fungoides are presented here. Atopy was a concomitant feature in both.
Tissue expansion can be used for a variety of reconstructive problems including the management of giant congenital nevi and the reconstruction of extensive burn scars. This procedure allows use of sensate tissue of similar color, texture, and thickness for resurfacing of the affected areas [1, 7]. Despite a rigorous methodology with precise preexpansion(More)
Mycosis fungoides is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. The extent and type of skin involvement (T classification) and presence of lymph node or visceral involvement are important predictors in selecting the type of treatment. Skin directed treatment represents the most appropriate therapy for early stage disease. Current topical treatment(More)
Pustulotic arthro-osteitis, first described by Sonozaki, is a relatively rare disorder. Its prevalence is however probably underestimated in dermatological literature. Early recognition of the signs can prevent misdiagnosis. We describe a Turkish patient who presented with palmoplantar pustulosis and involvement of the sternoclavicular joint and peripheral(More)
