Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini in a young adult: a case report.

Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini in a young adult: a case report. Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat. 2019 Mar;28(1):45-46 Authors: Begolli Gerqari A, Ferizi M, Gerqari I Abstract Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini is a skin atrophy presenting as single or multiple sharply demarcated, hyperpigmented, non-indurated patches, with a slight depression of the skin, that can converge and form a confluent area with atrophy as a consequence. The condition was first described by Pasini in 1923 and subsequently by Pierini in 1936. They distinguished this form of atrophy from other diseases and conditions in which the atrophy is morphologically and clinically different. The disease was initially associated with Borrelia burgdorferi infection; however, at present, various theories have emerged for the appearance of the disease, linked to genetic, neurogenetic, and immunological factors. Here we present a patient that was admitted to the hospital due to disseminated lesions on the skin of the lower limbs, with slightly pigmented and atrophic skin along with irregular borders varying in size, from several mm to a few cm, clearly demarcated from the healthy skin, with no history of a tick bite or a family history of similar skin disorders.

CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that reduced VS-frontal, within-putamen, and putamen-cingulate RSFC in currently depressed patients is dependent on current depressive episode and has implications for symptomatic monitoring, while increased caudate-insular and reduced VS-cerebellar RSFC in remitted patients and first-degree relatives might be related to the disease itself and have potential for predicting risk for and recurrence of MDD.

CONCLUSIONS: An increased frequency of depressive and neurotic disorders was observed in patients with LB, particularly in patients with neuroborreliosis. Neurotic disorders, mainly adaptive, were most common in males with LB, while depressive disorders were more frequent in females. An increased frequency of cognitive deficits was observed in patients with neuroborreliosis, particularly in females. PMID: 28378969 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Lyme neuroborreliosis is a tick-borne infectious disease caused by the spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. Clinical manifestations are classified as early and late Lyme neuroborreliosis. Early manifestations are much more common than late manifestations. Serological testing should only be performed when typical neurological symptoms are present because false positive results are common due to a high seroprevalence in the population. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis should be performed if Lyme neuroborreliosis is suspected. A systematic review found similar effects of bet...

Growing up a musically-obsessed child in the 80's, Daryl Hall was one of my biggest inspirations. A masterful, inventive songwriter with an ocean of soul, he set me on the path to being an artist, to never waste a word, and to sing because I mean it. With six number ones and five additional top ten hits throughout the 70's and 80's Daryl Hall and John Oates are the number one duo in music history. Still at the top of his game at 69 years old, Daryl has won legions of new fans with his hit MTV Live show Live From Daryl's House. In February of 2015, at my very sickest from chronic Lyme and Bartonella, after it was missed b...

We present a case of a 37-year-old man with no known psychiatric history who developed panic attacks, severe depressive symptoms and suicidal ideation, and neuromuscular complaints including back spasms, joint pain, myalgias, and neuropathic pain. These symptoms began 2 years after being successfully treated for a positive Lyme test after receiving a tick bite. During inpatient psychiatric hospitalization his psychiatric and physical symptoms did not improve with antidepressant and anxiolytic treatments. The patient's panic attacks resolved after he was discharged and then, months later, treated with long-term antibiotics ...

Although the editors of did not participate in the care of Andreas Lubitz, we are following news reports closely. Multiple sources today are reporting that he was under continuing care of a physician who recommended that he stop flying as a commercial airline pilot for Lufthansa controlled Germanwings air service. Lubitz seems to be a well-liked, non-controversial young man from a stable upbringing who by all accounts loved being a pilot. What could have caused him to fly his airliner with another 149 people aboard to their certain annihilation into a French mountainside? One wonders what medical conditi...
