Persistent Grover's disease can cause significant symptoms of pruritus thereby decreasing quality of life. Many patients undergo successful conservative management of their disease; however, a subset ...
Stationary phase persister/biofilm microcolony of Borrelia burgdorferi causes more severe disease in a mouse model of Lyme arthritis: implications for understanding persistence, Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), and treatment failure.
Although most patients with Lyme disease can be cured with a 2-4 week antibiotic therapy, about 10-20% of patients continue to suffer prolonged persistent symptoms, a condition called post-treatment L...
Bullous pemphigoid is the most frequent autoimmune bullous disease and mainly affects elderly individuals. Increase in incidence rates in the past decades has been attributed to population aging, drug...
Eosinophils are seen in a number of dermatologic conditions. While the extent of their function in these diseases remains to be fully elucidated, pathogenic activity in bullous pemphigoid suggests a m...
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) autoantibody levels are generally elevated in patients with BP but can be present nonspecifically in patients without BP.
Bullous pemphigoid affects mainly elderly patients. It is often associated with neurologic disorders, which represent a major risk factor of the disease
Autoimmune bullous dermatoses are a group of diseases with chronic course. They are provoked by the production of autoantibodies against the dermal-epidermal junction or against the inter-...
Bullous pemphigoid is the most common subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease of the skin in European countries, including France. Immunologically, BP is characterized by the productio...
Bullous pemphigoid is the most common type of bullous skin disease and is clinically characterized by clear-tense bullae, which result in post-bullous cutaneous erosions, altering the skin...
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the most common blistering auto-immune disease of skin with an incidence estimated to 400 new cases per year. Topical corticosteroid therapy is considered the st...
An itching, autoimmune, bullous SKIN disease that occurs during the last two trimesters of PREGNANCY and PUERPERIUM. It also affects non-pregnant females with tissue of PLACENTA origin, such as CHORIOCARCINOMA; or HYDATIDIFORM MOLE. It exhibits antigenic and clinical similarity to bullous pemphigoid (PEMPHIGOID, BULLOUS). This disease does not involve herpes viruses (old name, herpes gestationis).
Designation for several severe forms of ichthyosis, present at birth, that are characterized by hyperkeratotic scaling. Infants may be born encased in a collodion membrane which begins shedding within 24 hours. This is followed in about two weeks by persistent generalized scaling. The forms include bullous (HYPERKERATOSIS, EPIDERMOLYTIC), non-bullous (ICHTHYOSIS, LAMELLAR), wet type, and dry type.
A variant of bullous erythema multiforme. It ranges from mild skin and mucous membrane lesions to a severe, sometimes fatal systemic disorder. Ocular symptoms include ulcerative conjunctivitis, keratitis, iritis, uveitis, and sometimes blindness. The cause of the disease is unknown.
The process in which the neutrophil is stimulated by diverse substances, resulting in degranulation and/or generation of reactive oxygen products, and culminating in the destruction of invading pathogens. The stimulatory substances, including opsonized particles, immune complexes, and chemotactic factors, bind to specific cell-surface receptors on the neutrophil.
A malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymphoid tissue. In the classical variant, giant usually multinucleate Hodgkin's and REED-STERNBERG CELLS are present; in the nodular lymphocyte predominant variant, lymphocytic and histiocytic cells are seen.
