To the Editor: A frontal band of scarring alopecia with eyebrow involvement in postmenopausal women (ie, frontal fibrosing alopecia [FFA]) evolved from a “recently described disease” to the status of “a growing epidemic” in less than 2 decades. Since the first report by Kossard,1 additional features and variants not contemplated in the original description have been incorporated into the clinical picture. For such, I read with great interest the paper by Rossi et al reporting 3 unusual clinical patterns of FFA.

Elbers, Jeanet A. van der Goot The transmissibility of the H7N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV), which caused a large epidemic in commercial poultry in Italy in 1999-2000, was studied in chickens and compared with that of the low pathogenic precursor virus (LPAIV). Group transmission experiments using the HPAIV were executed to estimate the infectious period (IP), the transmission parameter (β) and the basic reproduction number (R0). These estimates were then compared wi...

If 2.6 billion people were suffering from an illness, you’d think we’d all be more familiar with it. That figure represents 33.7% of the population of the world, after all. It also represents the share of that population that will at some point experience an anxiety disorder, according to the National Institutes of Health. For those billions, the experience of clinical anxiety can range from a persistent fretfulness, distractedness and a sort of whole-body clenching, to the paralytic crisis of a full-blown panic attack. All of it feels lousy; all of it is a state you race to escape — which typically only ...
