First Japanese case of atypical progeroid syndrome/atypical Werner syndrome with heterozygous LMNA mutation
Sun, 19 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Journal of Dermatology
We report the first Japanese case of APS/AWS with a LMNA mutation (p.D300N). A 53‐year‐old Japanese man had a history of recurrent severe cardiovascular diseases as well as brain infarction and hemorrhages. Although our APS/AWS patient had overlapping features with Werner syndrome (WS), such as high‐pitched voice, scleroderma, lipoatrophy and atherosclerosis, several cardinal features of WS, including short stature, premature graying/alopecia, cataract, bird‐like face, flat feet, hyperkeratosis on the soles and diabetes mellitus, were absent. In immunofluorescence staining and electron microscopic analyses of the patient's cultured fibroblasts, abnormal nuclear morphology, an increase in small aggregation of heterochromatin and a decrease in interchromatin granules in nuclei of fib...

Hypothyroid symptoms and the likelihood of overt thyroid failure: a population-based case-control study.
Thu, 16 Oct 2014 03:45:05 +0100 | European Journal of Endocrinology
CONCLUSIONS: None of the individual symptoms of hypothyroidism had high LRs or DORs. Thus, neither the presence nor absence of any individual hypothyroidism symptom was reliable in the decision making of who should have their thyroid function tested. Therefore, even minor suspicion should lead to a blood test.

Docetaxel induced Lyell's syndrome: A rare life threatening cause of dermatitis medicamentosas
Tue, 14 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics
We report a rare case of toxic epidermal necrolysis following administration of docetaxel, a semi-synthetic taxane. A female diagnosed as having metastatic breast carcinoma received chemotherapy in form of docetaxel after being exposed to adjuvant chemotherapy, developed severe involvement of skin and mucus membrane. Diagnosis of TEN was made and she was managed with steroids, antibiotics, intravenous fluids and antiseptic dressings. Common toxicities reported with this drug include myelosuppression, alopecia, nail damage, erythema multiforme major and neuropathy. We believe this is the first case report of Lyell's syndrome following docetaxel. Main aim of this case is to make physicians aware of the severe skin reactions with docetaxel, measures to avoid them, early recognition and...
