Conjunctival Colloid Milium

Conclusions: Adult periocular colloid milium is an unusual presentation of a rare cutaneous deposition disease. The occurrence of conjunctival colloid milium is rare, and we report this case to increase knowledge and management regarding this rare disease and to differentiate it from other diseases such as amyloidosis, lipoid proteinosis, plasmacytoma, and conjunctival lymphoma, which carry a graver prognosis, and have a similar clinical appearance and can be distinguished only on the basis of histopathological characteristics.

Background Parents of children undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are at risk of adverse health outcomes due to their intense caregiver demands. Objective The aim of this study was to describe adverse health outcomes in parents of children who survived an allogeneic HSCT done within the past 1 to 10 years. Methods This cross-sectional study, conducted at a children's hospital in the western United States, enrolled English- and Spanish-speaking parents of children who survived allogeneic HSCT between 2005 and 2015. Outcome measures included Beck Anxiety and Depression Inventories, Perceived St...

Prognostic refinement in Fanconi anemia (FA) is needed, especially when considering allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT). We studied 20 children with FA and bone marrow failure from a single center. According to Hôpital Saint-Louis risk classification for FA, patients were classified in stage A (no or mild cytopenia/dysplasia), B (single non–high-risk cytogenetic abnormality), C (severe cytopenia and/or significant dysplasia and/or high-risk cytogenetic abnormality), and D (myelodysplastic syndrome with excess of blasts/acute myeloid leukemia) in 4, 2, 13, and 0 cases, respectively. Nine pat...
