The harmonic mean age of patients was 31 years; the female-to-male ratio was 1:1, and the most common locations were lower extremities (47%) and the trunk (29%). In the most recent years several pediatric cases were described, lowering the mean age of the patients in the literature. Most tar...

The project brings to light a little noticed group of women– women who experienced past sexual abuse that can be triggered duri...
