Re-examining the Optimal Use of Neuromodulators and the Changing Landscape: A Consensus Panel Update

Re-examining the Optimal Use of Neuromodulators and the Changing Landscape: A Consensus Panel Update J Drugs Dermatol. 2020 Apr 01;19(4):s5-15 Authors: Kaminer MS, Cox SE, Fagien S, Kaufman J, Lupo MP, Shamban A Abstract Since initial US Food and Drug Administration approval of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) for aesthetic use in 2002, clinical evidence and experience with BoNT-A and understanding of facial anatomy have greatly increased, leading to rapid advances in treatment planning and implementation. BoNT-A use has expanded from the upper face to the midface, lower face, and neck, so that BoNT-A injection is the most common cosmetic procedure worldwide. Trends in facial aesthetics reflect growing patient diversity with respect to age, gender, and ethnicity. In October 2019, a multidisciplinary panel of 6 experts in minimally invasive injectable procedures in the specialties of dermatology and plastic surgery convened at the 2019 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) meeting in Chicago, IL. Their goal was to discuss recent advances in BoNT-A use in facial aesthetics, including implications of the introduction of new agents in light of an evolving patient population.

We report a rare case of 74-year-old female of primary hyperparathyroidism caused by parathyroid carcinoma (PC) and coexisting multiple parathyroid adenomas. She was referred to our hospital for primary hyperparathyroidism and a suspected thyroid tumor. She had no family history of malignant tumor. Computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography of the neck revealed some masses posterior to both thyroid lobes. Those masses were believed to be parathyroid lesions. However, another mass located posterior to the right upper thyroid lobe seemed to be heterogeneous, which indicated a malignant thyroid tumor as well as parathyroid ...

We describe a unique, complex case of a man resulted affected by both APS-2 and MEN-2a. The patient developed Hashimoto's thyroiditis, diabetes mellitus type 1 and AAD, despite testing negative for adrenal cortex autoantibodies (ACA) and steroid 21-hydroxylase autoantibodies (21-OHAb). Moreover, he had also a family history for MEN-2a and he first developed medullay thyroid cancer, then bilateral pheochromocytoma on the adrenal substrate of an AAD. On adrenal histology we found complete bilateral cortical atrophy in the presence of a lymphocytic infiltration and fibrosis, confirming an ACA and 21-OHAb-negative AAD. This da...

CONCLUSIONSAmong women with a high school diploma, elements other than childbearing and marital status —such as contraceptive preferences and access—appeared to influence their contraceptive behavior. Sterilization differentials between high school and college graduates may reflect or exacerbate other socioeconomic disparities that affect women's health and well‐being.
