Granuloma Annulare and Morphea: Correlation with Borrelia burgdorferi Infections and Chlamydia-related Bacteria.

In conclusion, tick-mediated infections can trigger GA in some cases, while correlation of either Borrelia or Chlamydiales with morphea is unlikely. PMID: 29110020 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

However, there is a scarcity of studies about the tick fauna and rickettsial infection in the Amazon region. The present study evaluated ric...

CoutierAbstractMaternal infection during pregnancy by Chlamydia trachomatis (Chlamydia t.) can result in neonatal interstitial lung disease. It remains difficult for physicians to establish this diagnosis and to select the best treatment, as there is no recommendation. In these two cases of neonatal low respiratory tract Chlamydia t. infection, we proposed successfully a diagnosis method based on Chlamydia t. determination by PCR, on any type of sampling, but more ...

CONCLUSIONS: NIID is a rare neurodegenerative disorder usually diagnosed postmortem. The rectal and skin biopsy had proved helpful in antemortem diagnosis. We have increased the diagnostic armamentarium by showing the presence of intranuclear inclusions in smooth muscle cells of the muscle. Hence, a high degree of suspicion, magnetic resonance imaging features, with nerve/muscle/skin biopsy can help in diagnosis of NIID. PMID: 31094708 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Xu W, Wang X Abstract Vitiligo is an acquired pigmentary disorder characterized by the loss of skin color and functional melanocytes. The pathogenesis of vitiligo remains unclear, which means that effective clinical treatment is difficult. However, if melanocyte linkage-specific genes are identified in vitiligo lesions, the appropriate treament for melanocytes may be implemented. The current study aimed to detect the expression of melanocyte lineage-specific genes in vitiligo lesion needle biopsies and to predict the occurrence of perifollicular repigmentation in depigmented macules. A total of 6 patients ...
