KINDLER SYNDROME

submitted by: camdic
A case is reported of a 28 year old man referring the appearance of swollen blisters due to insignificant trauma since birth. Later he noticed progressive changes of the skin as teleangectasies, atrophic spots, sensivity to sun, dystrohic fingermails and webbing between fingers. The patient was hospitalized several times for an appropriate diagnosis and asked for the permission to undergo an operation of plastic surgery in Paris to correct webbing of the hands. The rare association of two...

ABCD's of MELANOMA

submitted by: camdic
FOXNEWS.COM HOME > HEALTH. Monday, February 25, 2008. ABCD's of Melanoma. Malignant Melanoma is the most aggressive of malignant cutaneous tumours. Cases with lymphonode involvement, and distant metastases, carry a very poor prognosis, (50% and 20% respectively alive in 5 years), while those presenting without evident lymphonode involvement have a much better survival rate (60% alive in 5 years). It is therefore extremely important to do early malignant melanoma diagnosis. There...
