Immunohistochemical analysis of Ki-67, p53, p21, and p27 in benign and malignant apocrine lesions of the breast: its correlation to histologic findings in 43 cases. (1/80)

We examined Ki-67, p53, p21, and p27 immunolocalization in 43 cases of apocrine lesions of the breast and correlated these findings with histologic parameters to understand their biologic significance. Twenty cases were benign, 1 case was borderline, and 22 cases were diagnosed as malignant, including 9 intraductal and 13 invasive apocrine carcinomas. Both the ratio of Ki-67-positive cases (17 of 21 [88.9%] versus 1 of 19 [5.3%]; P < .001) and the Ki-67 labeling index of positive cases examined (15.0% versus 2.7%; P < .005) were significantly higher in malignant than in benign apocrine lesions. None of the benign or borderline cases was immunohistochemically positive for p53, but 15 of 22 malignant cases (68.2%) demonstrated p53 (P < .001). In addition, the ratio of p53-positive cases was significantly higher in high nuclear grade cases (11 of 13 [84.6%]) than in intermediate nuclear grade cases (4 of 9 [44.4%]; P < .05). P53 immunoreactivity was also positively correlated with the nuclear grade of carcinoma cases examined in this study. Neither p21 nor p27 demonstrated any correlation with histologic parameters or findings of the apocrine lesions. Results of these studies suggest that Ki-67 and p53 may be good markers for differentiation between benign and malignant breast apocrine lesions.  (+info)

Immunohistochemical localisation of androgen receptor in apocrine metaplasia and apocrine adenosis of the breast: relation to oestrogen and progesterone receptors. (2/80)

AIM: To investigate the receptor status of the sex steroid hormones in apocrine metaplasia of the breast. METHODS: 82 cases of apocrine metaplasia, including 18 of the rare lesion apocrine adenosis, were studied immunohistochemically for the expression of androgen receptor, oestrogen receptor, and progesterone receptor proteins on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissue sections. The standard avidin biotin complex (ABC) technique was followed and appropriate positive and negative controls were used. RESULTS: All the studied cases (82/82) were positive for androgen receptor, but were negative for oestrogen receptor and progesterone receptor. CONCLUSIONS: Apocrine metaplastic epithelium, unlike the normal breast epithelium, is responsive to androgens, through androgen receptors, rather than to the female sex hormones. This may have clinical implications.  (+info)

A novel aspartyl proteinase from apocrine epithelia and breast tumors. (3/80)

GCDFP-15 (gross cystic disease fluid protein, 15 kDa) is a secretory marker of apocrine differentiation in breast carcinoma. In human breast cancer cell lines, gene expression is regulated by hormones, including androgens and prolactin. The protein is also known under different names in different body fluids such as gp17 in seminal plasma. GCDFP-15/gp17 is a ligand of CD4 and is a potent inhibitor of T-cell apoptosis induced by sequential CD4/T-cell receptor triggering. We now report that GCDFP-15/gp17 is a protease exhibiting structural properties relating it to the aspartyl proteinase superfamily. Unexpectedly, GCDFP-15/gp17 appears to be related to the retroviral members rather than to the known cellular members of this class. Site-specific mutagenesis of Asp(22) (predicted to be catalytically important for the active site) and pepstatin A inhibition confirmed that the protein is an aspartic-type protease. We also show that, among the substrates tested, GCDFP-15/gp17 is specific for fibronectin. The study of GCDFP-15/gp17-mediated proteolysis may provide a handle to understand phenomena as diverse as mammary tumor progression and fertilization.  (+info)

Extramammary Paget disease is characterized by the consistent lack of estrogen and progesterone receptors but frequently expresses androgen receptor. (4/80)

Extramammary Paget disease (EPD) is an uncommon cutaneous malignant neoplasm that arises in areas rich in apocrine glands (perineum, vulva, and axilla). Apocrine gland origin or apocrine differentiation of cells of EPD has been suggested. Estrongen, progesterone, and androgen hormone receptors have been reported to exhibit a characteristic pattern of expression in mammary apocrine type carcinomas; however, their expression in EPD has not been elucidated fully. By using immunohistochemical methods, we studied the expression of steroid receptors in EPD on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples from 28 patients with EPD without associated visceral malignant neoplasms or adnexal carcinoma. Androgen receptor (AR) was identified in 15 of 28 cases. The proportion of AR-positive cells varied from 1% to more than 75%; 8 cases expressed AR in more than 10% of cells. Strong AR expression also was seen in the invasive carcinoma arising from 1 case of EPD. All cases lacked immunohistochemically detectable estrogen and progesterone receptors. The immunophenotype characteristic of apocrine carcinomas (AR-positive, estrogen receptor-negative, progesterone receptor-negative) was seen in a substantial proportion of EPD cases. Results suggest that AR expression is a factor in pathogenesis of EPD. This may be important for the therapy of recurrent or invasive disease.  (+info)

Histo-physiology of the scent-marking glands of the penile pad, anal pouch, and the forefoot in the aardwolf (Proteles cristatus). (5/80)

The scentmarking glands of the anal pouch, penile pad, and the forefoot of the aardwolf (Proteles cristatus) were studied by histological, histochemical, immunohistochemical methods, and by electron microscopy. The morphological observations are correlated with eco-ethological aspects of this nocturnal animal. In all studied regions there was a superficial layer of holocrine sebaceous glands and a deeper layer of apocrine scent glands; these two types of glands apparently function in concert. Only in the forefoot were additional tubular glands, resembling eccrine sweat glands found, which may improve the frictional capacities of the paw, while apocrine and holocrine glands serve scent-marking functions of the forefoot. Penile pad and anal pouch are exclusively scent marking organs. The secretion modus of the apocrine glands is both via exocytosis and apocrine mechanism. Homogeneous apical, secretory granules, which contain glycoproteinaceous material, represent evidence for exocytosis. In the anal pouch, additional variably sized granules contain endogenous pigments which are probably responsible for the brownish coloration of the secretory product of the male animals. Variable heights of the glandular cells, frequent apical tall protrusions as well as pinched-off pieces of cytoplasm in the glandular tubules support the concept of an apocrine secretion in the scent glands. The immunohistochemical staining pattern of actin points to the involvement of actin filaments in the pinching-off process of the apical cell protrusion, which does not contain any cell organelles. The variable actin staining patterns suggest a dynamic process during which actin filaments form a ring or sheet at the basis of the pinching-off bleb. Proliferative and apoptotic phenomena show no preference for active and inactive glandular cells suggesting that replacement of cells occurs independently of the functional status of the glands.  (+info)

Aspects of general antimicrobial properties of skin secretions in the common seal Phoca vitulina. (6/80)

Considerable amounts of several saccharide residues (alpha-D-Man, beta-D-GlcNAc, alpha-D-GalNAc, beta-D-Gal, alpha-D-Gal, alpha-L-Fuc, NeuNAc) are demonstrated by lectin histochemistry in the sections of the sebaceous glands, and, particularly, the apocrine tubular glands of the common seal. These sugars may be liberated on the skin surface by microbial activities and, then, represent a general antimicrobial protection mechanism of the skin because of their ability to inhibit the adherence of different bacteria and fungi to the epidermis.  (+info)

Molecular cytogenetic comparison of apocrine hyperplasia and apocrine carcinoma of the breast. (7/80)

The relationship of apocrine metaplasia to invasive breast cancer is controversial. Different authors have reported that apocrine differentiation in proliferative lesions may be a risk factor, a precursor lesion, or have no association with malignancy. The aim of this study was to compare the genetic alterations in benign apocrine hyperplasia with apocrine ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and invasive apocrine carcinomas of the breast using comparative genomic hybridization. The mean number of alterations in apocrine hyperplasia was 4.1 (n = 10) compared to 10.2 in apocrine DCIS (n = 10) and 14.8 (n = 4) in invasive carcinoma. The most common alterations in apocrine hyperplasia were gains of 2q, 13q, and 1p and losses of 1p, 17q, 22q, 2p, 10q, and 16q. Apocrine DCIS and invasive carcinomas showed gains of 1q, 2q, 1p, and losses of 1p, 22q, 17q, 12q, and 16q as their most common DNA copy number changes. Apocrine hyperplasia is considered to be a benign lesion and its relationship to invasive carcinoma remains unclear. Our data suggest that some apocrine hyperplasias may be clonal proliferations. The mean number of alterations are lower in apocrine hyperplasia, however the changes show considerable overlap with those identified in in situ and invasive apocrine carcinoma. These alterations are also commonly seen in nonapocrine breast cancer. The data are consistent with apocrine hyperplasia as a putative nonobligate precursor of apocrine carcinoma.  (+info)

Mixed apocrine/endocrine ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast coexistent with lobular carcinoma in situ. (8/80)

An unusual mixed form of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast is described, which exhibits a biphenotypic morphology encompassing a range of differential diagnostic DCIS subtypes. In addition, immunophenotypic and ultrastructural studies demonstrate neuroendocrine and apocrine differentiation, raising questions regarding appropriate classification and biological behaviour. In two cases, coexistence of this mixed form of DCIS with lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) in the same duct lobular units is an additional unusual feature that might, at least in some cases, indicate a closer relation between them.  (+info)

Apocrine is a term used to classify exocrine glands in the study of histology. Cells which are classified as apocrine bud their secretions off through the plasma membrane producing membrane-bound vesicles in the lumen. The apical portion of the secretory cell of the gland pinches off and enters the lumen. It loses part of its cytoplasm in their secretions. Apocrine glands are found primarily in the breast of lactating mammals (i.e. the mammary glands are apocrine glands). Secretion occurs when the release of secretory materials is accompanied with loss of part of cytoplasm. Apocrine secretion is less damaging to the gland than holocrine secretion (which destroys a cell) but more damaging than merocrine secretion (exocytosis). An example of true apocrine glands is the mammary glands, responsible for secreting breast milk. Apocrine metaplasia is a reversible transformation of cells to an apocrine phenotype. It is common in the breast in the context of fibrocystic change. It is seen in women mostly ...

It is not possible to distinguish on histological ground between the ductal portion of eccrine and apocrine glands.. Traditionally most tumours have been considered to show eccrine ductal differentiation. Ackerman and colleagues have reclassified many of the traditional eccrine tumours to apocrine categories.. Extensive sampling may reveal foci of decapitation secretion in tumours classically regarded as eccrine.. Some of the glandular tumours reveal at least small foci of sebaceous or follicular differentiation.. Sweat gland and ductal differentiation: Characterized by formation of glandular/duct structures and presence of intracytoplasmic glandular lumina. True ducts and intracytoplasmic lumina can be highlighted by their diastase-resistant periodic acid-Schiff (PAS), epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) and carcinoembryonic antigen positivity. Currently the diagnostic utility of immunohistochemisty is doubtful. ...
The sweat that leads to body odour is a separate type. It comes from the apocrine glands, which are located close to hair follicles. These glands are focused around furry or hairy regions which includes the armpits and groin. The tube of the gland is simply joined onto the hair follicle and uses the hair as a conduit to flow onto the surface of the skin. This type of sweat is largely used as a signaling mechanism to communicate what state the body is in. Within the case of hormonal fluctuations, tension or emotional stress, fluid made from water, proteins, fatty acids and other materials is secreted by the apocrine glands and empties into the hair follicle. This chemical mix is broken down by bacteria that live on the skins outer surface. ...

This gene is a member of a phylogenetically conserved family of genes that share a common DNA-binding domain, the T-box. T-box genes encode transcription factors involved in the regulation of developmental processes. This protein is a transcriptional repressor and is thought to play a role in the anterior/posterior axis of the tetrapod forelimb. Mutations in this gene cause ulnar-mammary syndrome, affecting limb, apocrine gland, tooth, hair, and genital development. Alternative splicing of this gene results in three transcript variants encoding different isoforms; however, the full length nature of one variant has not been determined ...
We isolated total RNA from 11 normal breast samples, 17 DCIS, and 151 invasive breast carcinomas (Supplementary Table S1). IHC typing of the breast carcinomas showed that 71 lacked ER, PR, and HER2 expression (TNBC), whereas 97 were positive for a single or multiple of the 3 markers. Twenty-three TNBCs represented special histologic types: metaplastic (n = 9), atypical medullary (n = 8), adenoid cystic (n = 2), and apocrine carcinomas (n = 4). In addition, we isolated RNA from 6 ductal breast cell lines (MCF7, MCF10A, HCC38, BT474, MDA-MB134, and ZR-751).. We processed all samples by 3′-adapter barcoded small RNA cDNA library Solexa sequencing (31). A total of 61,319,767 barcoded sequence reads were extracted yielding a median of 134,022 reads per sample (range: 7,403-1,608,855; Supplementary Table S2); these reads were mapped to the genome allowing 1 mismatch/insertion/deletion and then to our noncoding RNA and miRNA databases allowing up to 2 mismatches or 1 insertion/deletion (22).

An apocrine sweat gland (/ˈæpəkrən, -ˌkraɪn, -ˌkriːn/; from Greek apo- "away" and krinein "to separate") is composed of a coiled secretory portion located at the junction of the dermis and subcutaneous fat, from which a straight portion inserts and secretes into the infundibular portion of the hair follicle. In humans, apocrine sweat glands are found only in certain locations of the body: the axillae (armpits), areola and nipples of the breast, ear canal, eyelids, wings of the nostril, perianal region, and some parts of the external genitalia. Modified apocrine glands include the ciliary glands in the eyelids; the ceruminous glands, which produce ear wax; and the mammary glands, which produce milk. The rest of the body is covered by eccrine sweat glands. Most non-primate mammals, however, have apocrine sweat glands over the greater part of their body. Domestic animals such as dogs and cats have apocrine glands at each hair follicle but eccrine glands only in foot pads and snout. Their ...
Similar to other skin diseases, the life quality of patients with acne inversa is considerably limited, not only due to the symptoms but also to its successions such as depressions and social isolation. Again and again, patients have to face the accusation that they dont take care of their body hygiene which causes their symptoms. But - despite intensive research - the exact cause for this disease is not known yet. One is for sure though: Genetic predisposition. In nearly one third of the patients the disease is considered genetically determined. Today it is considered certain that acne inversa is a disorder of the terminal hair follicle and not of the apocrine sweat glands. The inflammation of the apocrine sweat glands is a secondary phenomenon thus the old term hidradenitis suppurativa incorrect. In addition to smoking, over weight, increased sweating, tight clothing, diabetes mellitus as well as a weakened immune defence are being discussed as predisposing factors.. Mostly the diagnosis is ...
We all sweat. Its our bodys way of cooling us down. Sweat doesnt stink, yet we do. Why is that? The zinc oxide Mum used suggests that the 19th-century inventor knew that bacteria, not perspiration itself, made underarms reek. Zinc oxide is an antibacterial. Bacteria were relatively new concepts at the time, which makes Mums reasoning (if he so reasoned) more than amazing. Since then, scientists have figured out that bacteria feeds on some of the substances in sweat, thereby causing our bodies to smell. Your underarms are ground zero.. Underarms brim with apocrine glands, one of two main types of sweat glands that cover your body. Usually found in areas laden with hair follicles, apocrine glands produce a milky perspiration comprising water, proteins, lipids, fatty acids, cholesterols and iron-containing salts. When you perspire, the walls of the apocrine glands shrink, allowing the fluid to glom onto your hair follicles. The perspiration, which at this point is odorless, eventually pushes ...

Y1 - 1994/8/15. N2 - Nine dogs and 9 cats with ceruminous gland carcinoma were evaluated to determine whether they would receive radiation therapy. Tissue samples were reviewed to confirm the diagnosis and to assess completeness of resection in animals that had undergone surgery. Seven animals were excluded because surgical excision was determined histologically to have been complete (5) or because the owners did not wish to pursue treatment, because of advanced disease (2). The remaining 6 cats and 5 dogs, 6 of which had previously undergone surgery, were included in the study. The radiation therapy dose was 48 Gy, given in 12 fractions over 4 weeks. The product-limit estimate of mean progression-free survival time was 39.5 months. The estimate of 1-year progression-free survival rate was 56%. The tumor ...
Apocrine carcinoma is a rare malignant adnexal neoplasm. The differential diagnosis between apocrine carcinoma and cutaneous metastasis is often difficult. Here, we report a case of locally recurrent penile apocrine carcinoma initially diagnosed as metastatic adenocarcinoma of the colon. A 75-year-old man with a history of surgical resection due to sigmoid colon cancer and penile metastasis two years prior to this study presented with a nodule at the left penile base. He underwent a wide local resection of the penile mass under a suggested preoperative diagnosis of extra-mammary Pagets disease (EMPD) associated with previous sigmoid colon cancer ...
THE DEVELOPMENT OF PYODERMA. It is believed that staphylococcal pyoderma develops following surface spread from the carrier sites. Factors that ordinarily prevent the development of pyoderma are:. 1. The physical barrier of the intact skin. Normal desquamation is extremely important in preventing niches in which pathogenic bacteria could become established.. 2. Antibacterial substances present in normal sebum, and secreted onto the skin surface from apocrine secretions. This would include immunoglobulin, and other non-specifically acting substances such as those produced by resident bacteria.. 3. The bacterial barrier. If non-pathogenic bacteria occupy all available colonization sites, pathogens will not become established. There is thus a dynamic balance between the host defenses, the virulence of any potential pathogens and their ability to gain access, and the host defenses that are brought into play in a damage limitation exercise.. FACTORS THAT PREDISPOSE TO RECURRENT PYODERMAS. Pyoderma is ...

The breasts are apocrine glands that develop milk for that feeding of toddler small children; Each and every breast incorporates a nipple within an areola (nipple-areola intricate, NAC), the skin color of which may differ from pink to dim brown, and has sebaceous glands. Within the mammary gland, the lactiferous ducts generate breast milk, and are dispersed through the breast, with two-thirds of your tissue within thirty mm of the base from the nipple. In Every breast, four-eighteen lactiferous ducts drain on the nipple; the glands-to-Fats ratio is two:1 in lactating women, and to one:one in non-lactating women; Apart from milk glands, the breast is composed of connective tissue (collagen, elastin), adipose tissue (white Fats), as well as suspensory Coopers ligaments ...

Background Breast cancer is currently classified in 3 groups based on estrogen receptor alpha (ER) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2/ERBB2) gene expression: one basal-like (ER-ERBB2-), one HER2−enriched (ERBB2+) and one luminal (ER+). Yet, in transcriptome-based classifications, ER-ERBB2+ group partially overlaps with more recently defined ER-AR+ (androgen receptor positive) group. This type was named molecular apocrine, in reference to the histopathologically characterized apocrine carcinomas (H-Apo), in which a marked activation of AR signaling was demonstrated with a distinct proteomic signature. H-Apo tumors correspond to 1% of invasive breast carcinomas and are clearly morphological distinct from other AR+ tumors. However, no specific H-Apo transcriptome signature has been reported for this sub-group. In an effort to better characterize those tumors, we have performed a meta-analysis of genomic data, focusing on the ER- AR+ breast subset.. Samples and Methods: Chips were ...

Non-primate mammals have eccrine sweat glands only on the palms and soles. Apocrine glands cover the rest of the body, though they are not as effective as humans in temperature regulation (with the exception of horses).[8] Prosimians have a 1:20 ratio of follicles with apocrine glands versus follicles without.[22] They have eccrine glands between hairs over most of their body (while humans have them between the hairs on their scalp).[9]. The overall distribution of sweat glands varies among primates: the rhesus and patas monkeys have them on the chest; the squirrel monkey has them only on the palms and soles; and the stump-tailed macaque, Japanese monkey, and baboon have them over the entire body.[23]. Domestic animals[which?] have apocrine glands at the base of each hair follicle, but eccrine glands only in foot pads and snout. Their apocrine glands, like those in humans, produce an odorless oily milky secretion evolved not to evaporate and cool but rather coat and stick to hair so ...

Considered a severe form of acne, hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic skin inflammation that usually occurs deep in the skin in areas of the body with sweat glands, such as the groin or armpits. It is characterized by a combination of blackheads and red lesions that break open and drain pus, which may cause itching or sweating. As the red bumps grow in size, they can become more painful.. Hidradenitis suppurativa occurs when oil glands and hair follicles become blocked with sweat gland fluid, dead skin cells and other elements found in hair follicles. These substances become trapped and push out into the surrounding tissue. A break or cut of the skin then allows bacteria to enter the area and cause the inflammation.. Treatment depends on the severity of the condition. For mild cases, home remedies work well, such as warm compresses and regular washing with antibacterial soap. In more difficult cases, a topical or oral antibiotic medication may be needed to treat the infection. Your ...
Antibiotics are frequently prescribed for Hidradenitis Suppurativa, even though they are not proven to be effective. However, they can treat secondary infections and may provide an anti-inflammatory action with subsequent symptomatic relief. The choice of antibiotics should be based on a culture test of the drainage, as there is a wide variety of bacteria that can infect the lesions and not all antibiotics are equally effective. Both oral and topical antibiotics can be used, and at least a two month course is generally prescribed ...
We look forward to you posting soon. Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic disease of a type of sweat gland. It can occur in one or multiple areas of your body. HS usually develops in your armpit...
Where the sweat and oil glands are found in prominent areas is where you are likely to find an outbreak of hidradenitis suppurativa. The main areas are the groin, armpit and even anal area, three places where people sweat the most. In addition, areas of the body that tends to rub together like the buttocks, breasts or inner thighs may also have an outbreak. People can have this skin infection in more than one part of their body unfortunately.. Typical signs of hidradenitis suppurativa include the development of red, painful bumps which fill with pus and then break open to drain. Excessive sweating, itching and foul odor may accompany this discharge. Some of these painful bumps may just leak pus continually and take a long time to heal. Sometimes they never fully heal and instead scar up.. Sometimes, the affected area looks pitted and contains blackheads which is trapped sebum from the oil glands that are exposed to the surface. Small painful bumps may swell under the skin and form hard cyst-like ...

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 hidradenitis suppurativa (hs) is an inflammatory, chronic skin disease characterized by recurrent, painful, boil-like lumps (nodules) under the skin. hs affects the areas around skin folds (e.g., armpits, groin, and breasts) and where apocrine glands (a form of sweat gland) and hair follicles are found. it is not contagious. it typically manifests as a single pocket of pus (abscess) or hard, sebaceous lumps (lumps composed of sebum, or oil, which is excreted by the sebacous glands associated with hair follicles). it may progress to painful, deep-seated, inflamed clusters of lesions with chronic seepage involving significant scarring. in most cases, the cause of hs is unknown. it is likely that it results from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. some cases of hs have been associated with specific genes, including ncstn, psen1, and psenen. last updated: 3/6/2015 ...
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic devastating skin disorder affecting areas rich in apocrine glands. Nodules appear in the affected areas; they progressively become swollen and rupture with the release of pus. This process occurs repeatedly leading to sinus tract formation and scars. This disease course creates a frustrating situation for the patients but also for physicians. Traditional treatments comprise short-courses of antibiotics and surgical excision. However, relapse is the rule so that HS leads to severe impairment of the quality of life. The Dermatology Quality Life Index (DQLI) for HS is 8.9 being higher than any other skin disorder.. This devastating disorder has often been neglected and considered a rare situation. However, HS seems to indiscriminately affect the global population. Although the exact epidemiology is largely unknown, the point-prevalence is reported to range between 1% and 4%. A recent large epidemiological survey in France reports 0.97% disease ...
From iO9. ...Most of the body is covered with eccrine sweat glands that secrete water and a little salt. This doesnt feed anything, and so the sweat evaporates without stinking. So far, so good. It turns out, though, that around the rest of the body there are things called apocrine sweat glands. Theyre just about everywhere people have thick body hair, and both the hair and the glands really get going only after puberty. These glands dont just give off water and salt. They mix in sialomucin. Mucins, as the name suggests, result in a lot of the body secretions that could be described as gelid. Sialomucin is a component in breast milk. It feeds children, when secreted by the right body part, but when secreted by the apocrine sweat glands, it feeds a lot of bacteria. The armpits are the best place on the body to get it, since they are always warm and moist, have no cleaning systems, and almost always have a free buffet.. Thats what the bacteria get out of living in an armpit, but what do humans ...
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a serious skin condition centred on the inflammation of the large specialised sweat glands. Heres what you need to know.
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic condition that can be very painful and have a huge impact on the day-to-day life of the affected individual. It occurs mainly in the armpit (axillae), groin, anal, and breast regions.. In HS, hair follicles get obstructed (occlusion), and infection develops creating a blackhead / comedone or a boil / papule / postule. The pressure of the infection causes the hair follicles to rupture - not to the skin surface but laterally - causing painful, reddish nodules and pus-containing cavities to form under the skin (abscesses). Abscesses may rupture through the skin and drain its pus-containing contents onto the skin surface. The created wound needs to heal. Antibiotics have only limited effects on these infections and the healing is often associated with extensive scar formation. New abscesses causing new wounds are likely to develop adjacent to the initial nodules. As the condition progresses, these abscesses may become interconnected with tunnels running ...
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (also known as Apocrinitis, Apocrine Acne, Verneuils disease, Velpeaus disease, Fox-den disease, Pyodermia sinifica fistulans and Acne inversa) is an uncommon skin disorder characterized by the eruption of painful lesions predominantly under the arms and in the groin area. As a disease of the hair follicle, it is related to other follicular diseases, such as acne or pilonidal cyst.
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS; or acne inversa) is a scarring and frequently persistent inflammatory disorder of the terminal hair follicles of apocrine gland-bearing skin in adults. Treatments include local or systemic antibiotics, hormones, retinoids and systemic immunosuppressive agents (1), although on evaluation these have been shown to have only limited or temporary effect. In refractory cases, surgery is necessary, and should be radical and performed as early as possible (2, 3). It is essential to establish a registry of HS in order to address the following important issues: to assess the safety and effectiveness of different treatments; to identify which specific patient subgroups have the best risk/benefit ratio for a given treatment; and to create benchmark data for quality assurance of the medical service. This manuscript presents the Scandinavian Registry for HS, HISREG ...
Background There are many situations in integument surgery in which secondary intention healing (SIH) may bring results comparable or even superior to those obtained with primary intention healing.. Objective To present our own methods of employing SIH in surgical treatment of different skin lesions. Moreover, to delineate the extended indications for SIH as a first-line method of wound treatment.. Methods Between 1999 and 2009, we conducted 236 operations followed by SIH in the group of 195 patients. Two independent investigators and the patients carried out post-operative assessment (at 12 months) of both cosmetic and functional results of operations (data for 142 patients). Moreover, at 3 and 12 months, patients were asked for self-evaluation of the outcomes of surgical procedures using the visual analogue scale (VAS).. Results The most frequent indications for SIH were defects after the excision of non-melanoma skin cancers and hidradenitis suppurativa lesions. Depending on localization, the ...

My life with Hidradenitis Suppurativa started at age 14, just as I was entering the throes of puberty. I found the first painful lump in my groin as I was getting ready for gym class. Mom took me to the doctor, who wrote it off as a boil and tried to lance it. Nothing came out, and the pain was indescribable.. Soon I was breaking out in my groin area, inner thighs, and buttocks regularly, with big, painful lesions that would sometimes drain, sometimes not. They left scars if they opened and bruising if they didnt. The bumps ranged in size-anywhere from as small as a dime to as large as a Ping-Pong ball in diameter-and they were always excruciatingly painful. By 15, I had what can only be described as "pizza-groin.". As a teenager, without a proper diagnosis for my condition, I was ruled by feelings of self-consciousness. I would hide to change in the locker rooms at school and I refused to go swimming without shorts on. Sometimes I couldnt even wear underwear, and the draining lesions would ...

Anal Sac Tumors("apocrine gland adenocarcinomas"). These are not often painful and do not usually have redness on the overlying skin or any open wounds. They occur mostly in older female dogs (spayed as well as unspayed). They can cause an increase in blood calcium levels, which can cause clinical signs such as increased drinking and urination. They most often spread to the sublumbar lymph nodes, which are located in the abdomen right below the lumbar (lower back) vertebrae. If the lymph nodes become enlarged due to spread of the cancer, they can obstruct flow of feces by putting pressure on the colon. This may show itself as difficulty defecating or producing ribbon-like stools. Dogs with anal sac tumors can also have symptoms associated with other types of anal sac disease ("scooting," excessive licking, straining to defecate, reluctance to sit, or sitting asymmetrically ...

Early-onset adrenal activation, known as premature adrenarche, increases the risk of developing PCOS in women by 50%.7 In a young woman, an early onset of pubic/axillary hair and apocrine sweat gland development can mark this condition.. When it comes to the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, circulating ACTH levels in women with PCOS are actually similar to those found in age/weight-matched control women.2 The ACTH response to corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) stimulation has also been found to be similar in PCOS and control women. However, the production of adrenal androgens in response to ACTH stimulation is exaggerated in women with PCOS.2. As excessive stimulation of the adrenals by stress responses increases androgen output, it is helpful to look at the impact of stress in individual womens case histories. Along this same line of thinking, one suggested cause of PCOS-related adrenal androgen excess is peripubertal stress.2. Women with PCOS also secrete more cortisol than ...
Hidradenitisis suppurativa (HS) is also known as acne inversa. It is an unusually rare, long term skin disease that consists of small, painful and pimple-like lumps under the skin. It can appear similar to acne, boils and cysts.
Tumours of the apocrine glands of the anal sac represent 2% of all canine skin and subcutaneous tumours, and 17% of all perianal malignancies. Most tumours are malignant (adenocarcinoma) with 46-90% of tumours having spread at time of diagnosis. Early diagnosis, aggressive surgery and adjunctive therapy are crucial in achieving the best possible outcome for an individual patient. In this review, Katie McNaught and Professor Jo Morris of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences aim to highlight the clinical signs and importance of early diagnosis and staging and discuss the different treatment options available.. ...
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, debilitating, autoinflammatory skin disease with a prevalence rate of approximately 1% in Europe. HS usually presents in the adolescence with inflammatory nodules and abscesses, followed by sinus tract formation and scarring in predominantly the inverse body areas such as the axillae and groins. Key symptoms of HS include pain, discomfort, and a purulent, foul-smelling discharge. The physical and psychological consequences of the disease can profoundly reduce several aspects of patients quality of life. Although the pathophysiology of HS is not fully understood, follicular occlusion is supposed to be the key triggering event. This is followed by dilatation and subsequent rupture of the hair follicle causing an intense immune response. Exogenous factors such as smoking, obesity, and mechanical friction in addition to genetic predisposition and alterations in the microbiome may contribute to the onset and progression of the disease. Rapidly evolving ...
No one knows for sure what causes HS. Because it occurs after puberty, hormones likely play a role. The persons immune system also seems to play a role.. It is possible that HS develops when the persons immune system overreacts. HS begins in the hair follicles (where hair grows out of the skin). Like everyday acne, HS forms when the hair follicles clog with bacteria and other substances. It is possible that HS develops in people who have an immune system that overreacts to the plugged hair follicle.. Lifestyle also seems to play a role. It seems that smoking, being overweight, or taking lithium may trigger HS. These things do not cause HS. If a person is susceptible to getting HS, any of these could make HS appear for the first time or worsen existing HS. Although the exact cause is still unknown, dermatologists have learned the following from studying HS:. ...

The clinical trial identifier is PIONEER I. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of adalimumab and to determine how well it works in the treatment of adults with moderate to severe HS. HS is a chronic skin disease that creates red, swollen, painful bumps which can break open to combine and form tunnels in the skin and scars. Sometimes these bumps can heal themselves quickly and sometimes they will become much worse and create sores that heal with multiple combined scars, or areas that do not heal. In this study, approximately 300 adults will be enrolled at treatment centers worldwide. Subject participation in this study will be up to 50 weeks. There will be a screening period, which will last from 7 to 30 days, and a study treatment period of up to 36 weeks. Study visits occur at Screening, Baseline, and Weeks 2, 4, 8, 12, 14, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32 and 36 (or sooner if subject leaves the study before Week 36). The study is divided into two treatment periods. The first period (Period ...

Vaginal and vulvar tumors are uncommon in dogs. Knowledge of canine primary clitoral neoplasia is restricted to a few case reports, and only carcinomas have been reported. Cytologic and histologic features reported in the literature seem to overlap with those of canine apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinoma (AGASA). Clinical features also recall those of canine AGASA, such as locoregional metastases and hypercalcemia of malignancy (HM). In this study, 6 cases of primary canine clitoral carcinomas (CCCs), with and without HM, were investigated by means of cytology, histopathology, electron microscopy, and immunohistochemistry for neuroendocrine markers including chromogranin A (CGA), synaptophysin (SYN), neuron-specific enolase (NSE), and S-100 ...
The sweat from the apocrines becomes highly volatile, and therefore more of our pheromones can ostensibly travel into the air and Into the vomeronasal organs of the people we encounter. But while the hair on our heads might not be as pheromone-concentrated as the hair under our clothes, the fact that our hair is out in the world means our pheromones are out there, too. Each one of us has a unique body chemistry and a one-of-a- kind pheromonal fingerprint. But is it possible that people with light hair and complexions have a body odor that sets them apart from those with dark hair, who have their own signature body t scents? Men with dark hair sometimes have darker skin than their lighter-haired peers. While Asians have fewer apocrines than whites, blacks have more than both. While whites usually dont have the glands on their chests and abdomens, blacks often have a number of them in these regions. People with dark hair and skin naturally have more apocrine glands throughout their bodies, so it ...

BACKGROUND: The classic concept of axillary glands differentiates between eccrine glands, producing abundant clear, nonodorous sweat; and apocrine glands, excreting small amounts of turbid, odorous milky sweat. A third type of sweat glands, the "apoeccrine" glands, were recently identified. To define the different types of sweat glands and their location and number, the authors carried out a prospective histologic study on adult human axillary skin, including various immunohistochemical markers. METHODS: Forty-three consecutive Caucasian, subjectively normhidrotic patients, who underwent a surgical procedure in the axilla unrelated to the axillary glands, were included in the study. For verification of normhidrosis, the gravimetric test was carried out by measuring the amount of sweat secretion per minute. Then, a 1 x 1-cm measuring piece of skin and subcutaneous tissue was excised in the apex of the axilla, divided into three samples--altogether, 129 samples--and processed for histologic ...

If you have lumps that are particularly painful, inflamed and oozing pus, you may be prescribed a one or two week course of antibiotic tablets, as you may have an infection. However, in hidradenitis suppurativa, a secondary bacterial infection isnt that common, so its best if a swab of the affected area is taken.. If bacterial infection isnt present, low-dose antibiotics (usually tetracycline) may be used as a suppressive treatment (to prevent inflammation). This longer course of antibiotics will last at least three months, with the aim being to reduce the number of lumps that develop.. Topical antibiotics, such as clindamycin 1% used daily on affected areas can also sometimes help. Oral antibiotics (tablets, capsules or a liquid that you drink) include erythromycin, tetracycline, lymecycline and doxycycline, alongside a number of other options.. In severe cases of hidradenitis suppurativa, a combination of clindamycin and rifampicin can be effective, but these antibiotics are usually ...
