Congenital generalized lipodystrophy (CGL) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by near complete absence of adipose tissue from birth. Recently, mutations in 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase 2 (AGPAT2) and Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy 2 (BSCL2) genes were reported in pedigrees linked to chromosomes 9q34 and 11q13,(More)

An open label trial of Lamisil (Terbinafine) 500 mg daily for 16 weeks was conducted on 20 patients with Onychomycosis due to candida. Of these, 15 patients could complete the trial. Total number of target nails infected was 21. The follow-up period was from 16 to 52 weeks. At 16 weeks, 71% cases showed clinical improvement and 67% had mycological cure.(More)

Most of these papules were bilateral and multiple. All cases examined were painless. Biopsy showed fragmentation of dermal elastic tissue and herniation of subcutaneous fat into the dermis. Histology(More)
