To their astonishment, British scientists last week revealedthey had uncovered strong evidence that phosphine – a toxic, rancid gas produced by microbes – exists in the burning, acid-drenched atmosphere of Venus.Related:If we don't find life on planets like Venus, doesn't it make us that bit more special? | Charles CockellContinue reading...

Smoke in the summer has become common in B.C., a province with a warming climate marked by longer, nastier wildfire seasons. As the environmental catastrophes become more regular, so too do the psychological consequences — a sensation called "ecological grief" or "ecological anxiety," caused by seeing loss in the natural world.

AbstractHyperkeratotic skin adverse events are a group of toxic effects, characterized by the disruption of epidermal homeostasis and interaction with keratinocyte proliferation/differentiation or keratinocyte survival, and frequently reported with systemic anticancer treatments. These types of reactions include hand –foot skin reaction or palmoplantar keratoderma, induced psoriasis, keratosis pilaris-like or pityriasis rubra pilaris-like rashes, Grover’s disease, and contact hyperkeratosis. Cutaneous squamoproliferative lesions are also described because of the presence of abnormal keratinocyte proliferatio n....

Authors: Abstract Kaposi varicelliform eruption, also called eczema herpeticum, refers to a disseminated skin infection due to a virus that usually leads to localized vesicular eruptions, occurring in a patient with an underlying cutaneous disease. Although rare, it is potentially life-threatening disorder. Herpes simplex virus is considered the main causative agent. The most commonly reported cases occur in patients with atopic dermatitis.

Abstract Pityriasis rubra pilaris is a rare heterogeneous dermatosis associating three clinical signs to different degrees: follicular corneal papules, reddish-orange palmoplantar keratoderma and erythematosquamous lesions that may in some cases be very extensive, interspersed with patches of healthy skin. The aetiology is unclear, and in most cases, the trigger factors consist of trauma or infection, probably in subjects with an existing predisposition. In other cases, the condition is associated with immunological disorders or, in familial cases, genetic keratinisation abnormalities similar to ichthyosis. Given ...

Abstract Keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) syndrome is a rare genodermatosis causing ichthyosis-like skin lesions, keratitis, and deafness. Herein, we report a patient with this rare syndrome in association with pityriasis lichenoides chronica, which was succesfully treated with narrow-band ultraviolet B phototherapy despite our concerns regarding the increased risk of squamous cell carcinoma, hyperpyrexia, and keratitis.
