Publication date: Available online 3 September 2015 Source:Clinical Lymphoma Myeloma and Leukemia Author(s): Emanuele Cozzani, Alessandra Iurlo, Giulia Merlo, Daniele Cattaneo, Martina Burlando, Ivana Pierri, Luigi Gugliotta, Aurora Parodi Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is a myeloproliferative neoplasm characterized by an increase of the blood platelets and dominated by a predisposition to vascular events.

Erythromelalgia is found in 6% of the cases, whereas livedo reticularis, minor bleeding, acrocyanosis and Raynaud’s phenomenon are rare manifestations. It i...

Deslorelin for the treatment of alopecia in intact male dogs
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Advances in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery
Hair cycle arrest (alopecia X) is an idiopathic noninflammatory alopecic condition of dogs. Its dermatological features are very similar to endocrine disorders, particularly hyperadrenocorticism. The disorder is characterized by symmetrical nonpruritic and noninflammatory alopecia of the neck, tail, perineum, and caudal thighs and trunk. The head and distal extremities are usually not affected. Plush-coated dogs are at higher risk for hair cycle arrest, and the condition occurs in both neutered and unneutered male and female young adult dogs.

Biotinidase deficiency: Spectrum of molecular, enzymatic and clinical information from newborn screening Ontario, Canada (2007–2014)
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Molecular Genetics and Metabolism
This study elucidates the molecular, biochemical, and clinical findings from the pilot project. Information from initial screens, serum biotinidase activity level assays, molecular testing, and family history for 246 positive newborns screens were analyzed. A mutation spectrum was created for the province of Ontario, including common mutations such as D444H, D444H/A171T, Q456H, C33fs, and R157H. Individuals with partial deficiency were separated into 3 groups: D444H homozygotes (Group 1); compound heterozygotes for D444H with another profound allele (Group 2); compound heterozygotes with two non-D444H alleles (Group 3). Biochemical phenotype-genotype associations in partial deficiency showed a significant difference in serum biotinidase activity in between any given two groups. Three child...
Acne - a potential skin marker of internal disease
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 03:28:38 +0100 | Clinics in Dermatology
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most prevalent endocrine disorder in adult women. Hyperandrogenism is the crux of the pathogenesis of both acne and hirsutism, the most frequent clinical presentations of the syndrome. The chronic anovulation that may occur, often but not always associated with enlarged cystic ovaries, has long been recognized as an important feature of PCOS.In recent years major changes have occurred with regard to PCOS:Although management of the common cutaneous manifestations, mainly acne, hirsutism, alopecia, and acanthosis nigricans, remains strictly within the realm of daily dermatologic practice, the pendulum is shifting toward greater awareness of the longer-term systemic implications of PCOS, with emphasis on the unique opportunity and privileged position of...
