A hypothetical action spectrum for the regression of lesions in photochemotherapy of psoriasis is proposed. An ideal detector should have a wavelength response which matches this action spectrum but this is generally not the case with commercially available photometers. The problems that may arise by indiscriminate use of such detectors ...

Hypothyroidism is generally associated with hypogonadotropism. Occasionally, however, increased gonadotropin concentrations are encountered. The mechanisms, presumably hypothalamic, which determine the gonadotropin shift are unclear. A case report of hyperprolactinemic hypothyroidism with associated hypergonadotropism is presented. The previous literature is reviewed. It appears that hypothyroidism is generally associated with a decrease ...
