Verrucous lesions over external genitalia as a presenting feature of pemphigus vegetans

We report a case of pemphigus vegetans in an 85-year-old female presenting with hypertrophic verrucous lesions over external genitalia and perianal region. There was no history of preceding oral lesions. The diagnosis of pemphigus vegetans was considered on the clinical ground and confirmed by histopathological examination.

We report the isolation, characterization of bioactive small molecule ([crocetin (β-D-glucosyl) ester] from the leaf biowastes saffron plant of Kashmir, India. MTTC assay and Bio-autography aided approach were used to assess anticancer activity and anti-cancer properties of crocin (s) against DPPH free radical and breast cancer cell line respectively. Crocetin beta-D-glucosyl ester restrained proliferation of human breast adeno-carcinoma cell model (MCF-7) without significantly affecting normal cell line (L-6). This is further explained using molecular docking based predicted binding affinity of crocetin beta-D-g...

This study aimed to assess the balance function in children with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) using different tests to assess vestibulospinal pathway and tests to assess vestibular system and to compare the result obtained with those of children with normal hearing sensitivity. Detailed balance assessment was done for 15 children with severe to profound SNHL and 15 children with normal hearing sensitivity in the age range of 6 –10 years. The audiological evaluation included pure-tone audiometry, speech audiometry, immittance evaluation, otoacoustic emission, vestibular evoked myogenic potential (cervical VE...

ConclusionsOne-third of local health departments reported no safety-net sexually transmitted disease services or were not aware of the services, and availability of specific services varied. Without an expansion of resources, local health departments might explore collaborations with healthcare systems and innovations in testing to expand sexually transmitted disease services.
