UV Rays Leading to Xeroderma Pigmentosum

  title={UV Rays Leading to Xeroderma Pigmentosum},
  author={K. Anuja},
Xeroderma pigmentosum is an acquired condition described by a compelling affectability to bright (UV) beams from daylight. This condition for the most part influences the eyes and ranges of skin presented to the sun. Xeroderma pigmentosum is an uncommon issue transmitted in an autosomal latent way. It is portrayed by photosensitivity, pigmentary changes, untimely skin maturing, and harmful tumor improvement. These signs are because of a cell extreme touchiness to bright (UV) radiation coming… Expand


Overview of Xerodermatic Pigmentsum Mutations, Prognosis, and Treatment
This rare disorder is an autosomal recessive skin disorder where cells are unable to repair the damage caused by UV radiation, which leads to early skin changes, sunburns, dry skin and increased development of skin tumors and damage to the eyes brought on by UV light. Expand
Xeroderma Pigmentosum-A Rare Genodermatosis: Overview of Literature
The etiopathogenesis, clinical features and treatment modalities of this life threatening disease are thrown light and there is a special mention on the oral manifestations and dental health considerations of the rare disorder. Expand
Xeroderma Pigmentosum: Man Deprived of His Right to Light
Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a hereditary autosomal recessive disorder characterized by photo hypersensitivity of sun exposed tissues and subsequent several-fold increased risk for malignant changesExpand
The present status of xeroderma pigmentosum in Japan and a tentative severity classification scale
A nationwide survey on XP was performed to determine the present status of XP in Japan, and a tentative scale for classifying the severity of XP was created, and the neurological symptoms of XP‐A were evaluated using this severity scale. Expand

Evaluation of a patient with oral pigmentation requires a systematic approach with resource to appropriate investigations in certain circumstances, and special attention is given to newly appearing lesions, or those that have changed significantly in appearance. Expand
A genetic cluster of patients with variant xeroderma pigmentosum with two different founder mutations
A community in the state of Goias (central Brazil) with a high incidence of Xeroderma pigmentosum is identified, associated with hypersensitivity to sunlight and a high frequency of skin tumours at an early age. Expand
Pigmented Contact Dermatitis
Patch testing should be performed to identify the causative allergen and besides a papule or vesicle, a brown pigment may develop at the patch test site, which indicates pigment incontinence. Expand
A Rare Cause of Pigmentation Disorder; Tuberous Sclerosis Complex
Skin findings of tuberous sclerosis complex include angiofibromas, known as adenoma sebaceum, in the face and Koenen’s tumor, and skin lesions include cafe-au-lait spots and molloscum fibrosum pendulum resembling acrochordon. Expand
Technical Aspects and Difficulties in the Management of Head and Neck Cutaneous Malignancies in Xeroderma Pigmentosum
Although genetic components of the disease have been elucidated, there is no definitive treatment algorithm and early surgical intervention and close follow-up are the gold standard modalities due to the tendency toward rapid tumor growth and possible recurrence. Expand
Conjunctival Dysplasia and Atypical Secondary Acquired Melanosis inXeroderma Pigmentosum
A 9 year old Indian boy with a history of XP presented with conjunctival lesions over the course of one year and the ocular involvement manifested as conjunctive actinic keratosis/epithelial dysplasia and atypical secondary acquired melanosis, which has not previously been reported in association with XP.
