Identification of Epidermal Signatures in Patients With Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a skin disorder with an itchy, red skin rash. This may be because certain proteins are increased in the skin of AD patients. The increased expression of these proteins...

Evaluation of Patients Who Have Skin Diseases

RATIONALE: Evaluating patients who have skin diseases may help doctors plan more effective treatment and follow-up for skin diseases and systemic diseases that show up in the skin. PURPOS...

The Role of Bacterial Toxins in Human Skin Disease

Atopic dermatitis and psoriasis are two skin diseases often associated with bacterial infections and inflammation. Studies indicate that skin cells from these patients may have some change...

Exploratory Study of Natural Killer Cells in Human Skin

Natural Killer (NK) cells play a unique role during innate immune responses as they are able to recognize and eliminate, without specific sensitization, tumors, microbe-infected cells as w...

Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation in Treating Patients With Hematologic Cancer or Other Hematologic or Metabolic Diseases

RATIONALE: Umbilical cord blood transplantation may be able to replace cells destroyed by chemotherapy or radiation therapy. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of umbilica...

Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography-Supervised Biopsy.

Currently, only skin biopsy can provide definitive histological confirmation for the diagnosis of skin diseases. To improve the diagnostic accuracy and to assist the dermatologist, various imaging tec...

Utility of abdominal skin plus subcutaneous fat and rectal mucosal biopsy in the diagnosis of AL amyloidosis with renal involvement.

Skin fat biopsy of the abdominal wall is a simple and safe method for detecting amyloidosis, and rectal mucosal biopsy is also frequently used for screening for the disease; however, the sensitivity o...

Comparison of Enterococcus faecium Bacteremic Isolates from Hematologic and Non-hematologic Patients: Differences in Antimicrobial Resistance and Molecular Characteristics.

Enterococcus faecium, especially vancomycin-resistant E. faecium (VREfm), is a major concern for patients with hematologic diseases. Exposure to antibiotics including fluoroquinolone, which is used as...

Handheld reflectance confocal microscopy, dermatoscopy and histopathological correlation of common inflammatory balanitis.

The term balanitis includes a variety of inflammatory skin diseases involving the glans penis whose clinical diagnosis may be challenging. A biopsy is often required to obtain a definitive diagnosis, ...

When to ask for a skin biopsy in a patient with leg ulcer? Retrospective study of 143 consecutive biopsies.

A vascular cause is found in around 85% of leg ulcer patients, but non-vascular causes are also observed. Their diagnosis is based on a set of clinical arguments and skin biopsy with histological anal...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The co-occurrence of pregnancy and a blood disease (HEMATOLOGIC DISEASES) which involves BLOOD CELLS or COAGULATION FACTORS. The hematologic disease may precede or follow FERTILIZATION and it may or may not have a deleterious effect on the pregnant woman or FETUS.

Disorders of the blood and blood forming tissues.

Hematologic diseases caused by structural or functional defects of BLOOD PROTEINS.

Hematologic diseases and diseases of the lymphatic system collectively. Hemic diseases include disorders involving the formed elements (e.g., ERYTHROCYTE AGGREGATION, INTRAVASCULAR) and chemical components (e.g., BLOOD PROTEIN DISORDERS); lymphatic diseases include disorders relating to lymph, lymph nodes, and lymphocytes.

Skin diseases affecting or involving the cutaneous blood vessels and generally manifested as inflammation, swelling, erythema, or necrosis in the affected area.
