Comorbid psychiatric disease significantly mediates increased rates of alcohol use disorder among patients with inflammatory and pigmentary skin disorders: a case –control study in the All of Us Research Program
AbstractDermatologic diseases have a well-documented association with depression and anxiety, which are in turn often comorbid with alcohol use disorder (AUD). Nonethleess, the relationship between dermatologic disease and AUD, and the relative contribution of depression and anxiety, are poorly understood. Here, we utilize the National Insittutes of Health All of Us Research Program to investigate the association between inflammatory and pigmentary dermatologic diseases with AUD. Furthermore, we investigate whether comorbid depression and anxiety mediates this relationship. We employed a matched case –control model with ...

Practical management of hypertrophic scarring: the mayo clinic experience
This study aims to identify patient- and provider-preferred treatment patterns. This is a single-center, retrospective study of adult patients that developed post-surgical hypertrophic scarring between 2007 and 2017. Specifically, trends in procedural management for hypertrophic scarring among this cohort were examined. A total of 442 procedures (intralesional steroid injection, surgical excision, laser-based treatment) were identified in 218 patients with a clinical diagnosis of hypertrophic scarring. Approximately 73% were female; 87% were Caucasian. The median age at first procedure was 45.6  years (SD = 17.4). The...

Can the mucosal attacks of Beh çet’s disease be predicted?
AbstractThe primary objective of this study was to investigate the association between disease activity and serum and salivary procalcitonin (Pct) levels in patients with Beh çet’s disease (BD). The study included patients diagnosed with BD and age-matched healthy volunteers (N: 48,N: 32). Serum and salivary Pct levels were quantified using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in the laboratories of Diskapi Yildirim Beyazit Training and Research Hospital. No significant disparity was observed in serum and salivary Pct levels between the patient and control groups (p >  0.05). Furthermore, there was no notewo...

Chemical exposures and demographic associations in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma: a large single institution physician validated cohort study
AbstractCutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are a rare group of T-cell neoplasms which infiltrate the skin and can result in substantial morbidity and mortality. Risk factors for CTCL are still poorly understood though recent studies suggest chemical exposures may play a role in its development. To further characterize patient-centered risk factors for CTCL, especially compared with matched controls, we performed one of the largest prospective cohort survey studies to date to examine patient-reported exposures and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in association with concurrent clinical disease characteristics. Patient ...
