—In this paper, an improved fast SPIHT algorithm has been presented. SPIHT and NLS (Not List SPIHT) are efficient compression algorithms, but the algorithms application is limited by the shortcomings of the poor error resistance and slow compression speed in the aviation areas. In this paper, the error resilience and the compression speed are improved. The… (More)

Tender, violaceous and highly edematous papules and plaques were detected on the forearms and legs, some of which were pseudovesicular. Similar edematous papules were detected on the dorsum… (More)
Vulvovaginal-gingival syndrome is characterized by erosions and desquamation of the vulva, vagina, and gingiva.
