Pustular psoriasis has different clinicomorphologic forms such as generalized, localized (mainly palmoplantar or acral), and annular. There are also few cases with a linear distribution pattern. We report a case of pustular psoriasis with a striking linear distribution probably related to Blaschko's lines. We suggest that linear pattern should also ...

The authors draw attention to the possibility that some of the equivocal cases of internal diseases diagnosed variously and treated in various hospitals may actually be caused by Chlamydia trachomatis or other species of the genus Chlamydia. We report a case of a generalized chlamydia infection which brought about multiple ...

The distribution of the number of loci out of the 13 in the CODIS STR set that would show an exclusion (i.e., a genotype set incompatible either with the prosecution hypothesis or with Mendelian transmission) was estimated in different scenarios. The knowledge of this distribution would provide a framework against ...

The loss of human life resulting from environmental contaminants generally does not occur contemporaneously with the exposure to those contaminants. Some environmental problems produce harms with a latency period whereas others affect future generations. One of the most vexing questions raised by the cost-benefit analysis of environmental regulation is whether ...

Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) is generally described as non-addictive. However, this report describes three cases in which criteria for dependence were met. A wider understanding that MDMA can be addictive in rare cases is important as very heavy use may cause lasting neuronal changes. This risk could be reduced with effective identification ...

Distinct, structurally different forms of sn-1,2-diacylglycerol are found in cells, these are polyunsaturated, mono- or di-unsaturated and saturated. The pathways that generate or metabolise sn-1, 2-diacylglycerol are reviewed. The evidence that it is the polyunsaturated forms of sn-1,2-diacylglycerol, but the more saturated forms of phosphatidate which function as intracellular signals ...

Novel species are introduced into a network of interacting replicators either (i) as mutants of members of the network (ii) as unrelated immigrants. We consider the meta-population dynamics of such a system. In the first case the appearance of mutants leads to a slow growth of the replicator network, proportional ...

We hypothesized that psychiatrists with high dual-agency potential (military and health maintenance organization [HMO] psychiatrists) were more likely than non-HMO civilian psychiatrists to engage in dual relationships, report pressures to do so, participate in other general boundary-crossing activities, and report associated counter-therapeutic outcomes (boundary violations). Ninety military and 191 demographically ...

Adverse drug events (ADEs) are both common and costly. Most hospitals identify ADEs using spontaneous reporting, but this approach lacks sensitivity; chart review identifies more events but is expensive. Computer-based approaches to ADE identification appear promising, but they have not been directly compared with chart review and they are not ...

Five patients suffering from idiopathic cricopharyngeal dysfunction (without Zenker's diverticulum) were treated surgically. Together with cricopharyngeomyotomy biopsies were taken at the level of the cricopharyngeus. Histological, enzyme hystochemical and electronmicroscopic examinations were performed on all patients. In two cases the histology revealed myogen dystrophy (presence of necrosis, myophagocytosis, abnormal fiber ...

Amyloid is usually deposited in the tongue, as a part of generalized amyloidosis. Isolated localized amyloidosis of the tongue is relatively rare. We report such a case which presented with glossodynia and glossopyrosis and was thought clinically to represent median rhomboid glossitis. Histologically the amyloid stained positively with Congo-red giving ...
