Epidermal or epidermoid cysts usually are benign, solitary-growing masses located in the mid- or lower dermis. They are believed to derive from pilosebaceous units and are lined with an epidermis-like epithelium including a granular cell layer. The occurrence of multiple epidermal cysts on the scalp of nonsyndromic patients is extremely ...

Abstract : Selection on parasites should favor adaptations that maximize the probability of transmission to the definitive host, such as the preference for and use of intermediate hosts or encystment substrata that are likely to be consumed by the definitive host. Eye flukes in the genus Philophthalmus are passed to ...

Blood flow rate in the microcirculation is proportional to the arteriole-venule pressure difference and inversely proportional to the blood flow resistance (BFR). Generally, the BFR studies to date have focused on using invasive methods and were carried out in non-physiological conditions. Moreover, few studies have been concerned with the relationships ...

Leishmaniasis is a parasitic infection caused by the obligate intracellular protazoa leishmania. The most commonly encountered form is cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL), which generally manifests as a chronic, painless ulcer. Recent increases in the incidence of CL worldwide due in large part to increased immigration and international travel, combined often with ...
