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]

UCLA Health Rates of sexually transmitted diseases have risen for the past four years to record highs in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ’slatest analysis. In California, the state health departmentfound that the number of people diagnosed with syphilis, gonorrhea or chlamydia in 2017 was 45 percent higher than five years prior.These sorts of statistics may spark a fear that there ’s little we can do to protect ourselves — but that’s not the full story.Dr. Leena Nathan, an obstetrician/gynecologist at UCLA Health-Westlake Village, consults with peo...

Syringocystadenoma papilliferum is a very rare, benign adnexal tumor that originates from the apocrine sweat glands. Herein, we report a 25-year-old male who presented with a 10-year history of an asymptomatic slowly growing skin lesion on his face. Skin examination revealed a solitary rounded 3 × 3 cm erythematous plaque with central crustation on the right side of his face. Punch skin biopsy was taken from the lesion. The epidermis showed downward papillomatous extensions. The dermis showed multiple epithelial sheets and dilated ducts that were lined by columnar cells. On the basis of th e above clinicopathological...

This study aimed to investigate the presence and perform molecular characterization of Anaplasmataceae, Rickettsia spp., and Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (sl) in tick species collected in Corsica. Ticks from cattle (Bos taurus), sheep (Ovis aries), and rodents (Rattus rattus) were collected from May to September 2016. DNA was purified from ticks, submitted to quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and sequenced for phylogenetic analysis. In total, 660 ticks were collected from 111 animals during the study. The most abundant collected tick species from cattle was Rhipicephalus bursa (n = 49...

In this study, 277 sheep blood samples were collected from 7 counties in Qinghai and tested by PCR to detect and identify the above mentioned tick-borne pathogens. Among the 277 sheep, 176 (63.5%) were infected with at least one pathogen. A. ovis was the most prevalent pathogen (n = 112, 40.4%), followed by T. luwenshuni (n = 108, 39.0%), T. uilenbergi (n = 65, 23.5%) and B. motasi sp. L/N/T (n = 11, 4.0%). Interestingly and importantly, 83 (30.0%) infections with two or more pathogens were identified. The results of sequence analysis indicated that A. ovis msp4, B. m...

In this study, we describe the clinical use of a recently developed human dermal matrix (HDM) in combination with graft skin as an alternative reconstructive solution for the treatment of full-thickness skin wounds. The HDM was applied in combination with autologous graft skin on three different clinical cases in which full-thickness skin wounds occurred. The clinical outcomes were evaluated in the patients during their follow-up. Histological as well as ultra-structural analysis were also performed on skin biopsy of the clinical case 3 one year after the treatment with HDM. The use of HDM stimulates the wound healing proc...

Higgins, Andrea Casteriano, Laszlo Irinyi, Valentina S.A. Mella, Mathew Crowther, Wieland Meyer, Mark B. KrockenbergerAbstractChlamydiosis, caused by Chlamydia pecorum, is regarded as an important threat to koala populations. Across the koala’s geographical range, disease severity associated with C. pecorum infection varies, with pathogen diversity and strain pathogenicity being likely important factors. To examine C. pecorum diversity on a sub-population level a Multi-Locus...
