Successful treatment of areolar Fox ‐Fordyce disease with surgical excision and 1550‐nm fractionated erbium glass laser
We report the successful treatment of a case of bilateral areolar FFD by a combination of surgical excision and 1550‐nm fractionated erbium glass laser in an 18‐year‐old woman. The patient presented with a bilateral areolar eruption of multiple, severely pruritic, 3–4 mm skin‐ to grey‐coloured folliculocentric dome‐shaped papules. The initial treatment plan was for bilateral surgical excision of the larger and more highly elevated papules via circumferential dermal excision, which was intended to maintain the areolar contour and minimise distortion. A 1550‐nm fractional erbium glass laser was then used to control the remnant lesions. The patient was recurrence‐free at 14 months after the final laser treatment, and she was fully satisfied with the treatment results.
Conclusions: Results of the present study support the interpersonal theory of suicide, which suggests that self-reported thwarted belongingness can foster WD. Clinical implications: Clinicians should consider social dissatisfaction and withdrawal as risk factors for WD and design interventions that foster social skills or meaningful connections.

CONCLUSIONS: we found an association between SIBO and allergic disease, especially allergic rhinitis, cow's milk protein allergy and asthma. Thus, SIBO should be ruled out in pediatric patients with CAP and allergic disease. PMID: 31617366 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Taki S, Maekita T, Sakata M, Fukatsu K, Maeda Y, Iguchi M, Ito H, Kitano M Abstract Continuous duodenal levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel delivery by a gastrostomy infusion system improves control of Parkinson's disease. The overall complication rates of percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy were reported to be 41% and 59% for immediate and delayed adverse events, respectively. A 72-year-old woman underwent percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy using the delivery system noted above. Abdominal pain and vomiting occurred 3 months later. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a longitudinal ulcer extending...
Conclusions: Our study is the first to report that endoscopic therapy of PFCs using LAMS is safe and effective even in a community hospital setting with limited resources and support compared to large academic centers. PMID: 31615198 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
