Klein-Waardenburg Syndrome refers to a disorder that also includes upper limb abnormalities.
Mammalian pigment cells that produce MELANINS, pigments found mainly in the EPIDERMIS, but also in the eyes and the hair, by a process called melanogenesis. Coloration can be altered by the number of melanocytes or the amount of pigment produced and stored in the organelles called MELANOSOMES. The large non-mammalian melanin-containing cells are called MELANOPHORES.

The Sox10(Dom) mouse: modeling the genetic variation of Waardenburg-Shah (WS4) syndrome. (1/94)

Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) is a multigenic neurocristopathy clinically recognized by aganglionosis of the distal gastrointestinal tract. Patients presenting with aganglionosis in association with hypopigmentation are classified as Waardenburg syndrome type 4 (Waardenburg-Shah, WS4). Variability in the disease phenotype of WS4 patients with equivalent mutations suggests the influence of genetic modifier loci in this disorder. Sox10(Dom)/+ mice exhibit variability of aganglionosis and hypopigmentation influenced by genetic background similar to that observed in WS4 patients. We have constructed Sox10(Dom)/+ congenic lines to segregate loci that modify the neural crest defects in these mice. Consistent with previous studies, increased lethality of Sox10(Dom)/+ animals resulted from a C57BL/6J locus(i). However, we also observed an increase in hypopigmentation in conjunction with a C3HeB/FeJLe-a/a locus(i). Linkage analysis localized a hypopigmentation modifier of the Dom phenotype to mouse chromosome 10 in close proximity to a previously reported modifier of hypopigmentation for the endothelin receptor B mouse model of WS4. To evaluate further the role of SOX10 in development and disease, we have performed comparative genomic analyses. An essential role for this gene in neural crest development is supported by zoo blot hybridizations that reveal extensive conservation throughout vertebrate evolution and by similar Northern blot expression profiles between mouse and man. Comparative sequence analysis of the mouse and human SOX10 gene have defined the exon-intron boundaries of SOX10 and facilitated mutation analysis leading to the identification of two new SOX10 mutations in individuals with WS4. Structural analysis of the HMG DNA-binding domain was performed to evaluate the effect of human mutations in this region.  (+info)

Independent evaluation of onchocerciasis rapid assessment methods in Benue State, Nigeria. (2/94)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prevalence of palpable nodules or skin depigmentation as rapid indicators of onchocerciasis epidemicity in at-risk communities. METHOD: We examined data collected in Benue State on 11035 individuals in 32 villages to evaluate these rapid assessment methods. RESULTS: The prevalence of palpable nodules correlates more closely with microfilarial prevalence (r=0.68, P<0.001) and community microfilarial load (r=0.64, P<0.001) than the prevalences of skin depigmentation or other potential rapid indicators. The recommended cut-off value for palpable nodules of 20% or more in males aged >20 years had a sensitivity of 94% and specificity of 50% compared to a cut-off of 40% or more for microfilarial prevalence in all ages. This would mean that in these 32 villages 17 of 18 would have been correctly identified for treatment, and a further 7 at lesser risk would have been targeted for treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Skin snipping and parasitological examination can be replaced by the simpler method of palpating onchocercal nodules to identify communities at serious risk of onchocerciasis. This has important operational benefits for onchocerciasis control programmes.  (+info)

A molecular analysis of the yemenite deaf-blind hypopigmentation syndrome: SOX10 dysfunction causes different neurocristopathies. (3/94)

The Yemenite deaf-blind hypopigmentation syndrome was first observed in a Yemenite sister and brother showing cutaneous hypopigmented and hyperpigmented spots and patches, microcornea, coloboma and severe hearing loss. A second case, observed in a girl with similar skin symptoms and hearing loss but without microcornea or coloboma, was reported as a mild form of this syndrome. Here we show that a SOX10 missense mutation is responsible for the mild form, resulting in a loss of DNA binding of this transcription factor. In contrast, no SOX10 alteration could be found in the other, severe case of the Yemenite deaf-blind hypopigmentation syndrome. Based on genetic, clinical, molecular and functional data, we suggest that these two cases represent two different syndromes. Moreover, as mutations of the SOX10 transcription factor were previously described in Waardenburg-Hirschsprung disease, these results show that SOX10 mutations cause various types of neurocristopathy.  (+info)

Successful bone marrow transplantation in a case of Griscelli disease which presented in accelerated phase with neurological involvement. (4/94)

Griscelli disease (GD) is a rare disorder characterized by pigment dilution, immunodeficiency and occurrence of accelerated phase consisting of hemophagocytosis, pancytopenia and neurological manifestations. Allogeneic BMT in the early period is an important modality of treatment for GD. We carried out an alloBMT from an HLA-identical sibling donor on a 4-year-old girl who presented in accelerated phase with neurological manifestations including convulsions, strabismus, severe dysarthria, ataxia and clonus. She was treated with etoposide, methylprednisolone and intrathecal methotrexate for 8 weeks and underwent alloBMT after receiving a conditioning regimen including ATG (rabbit, 10 mg/kg x 5 days), Bu/Cy. 8 x 108/kg nucleated bone marrow cells were given. Engraftment occurred early and the post-BMT period was uneventful. Currently, she is at 18 months post BMT with sustained engraftment and with a normal neurological examination except for minimal clonus. Long-term follow-up will determine the prognosis regarding the neurological findings.  (+info)

Spatially restricted hypopigmentation associated with an Ednrbs-modifying locus on mouse chromosome 10. (5/94)

We have used the varied expressivity of white spotting (hypopigmentation) observed in intrasubspecific crosses of Ednrb(s) mice (Mayer Ednrb(s)/Ednrb(s) and C3HeB/FeJ Ednrb(s)/Ednrb(s)) to analyze the effects of modifier loci on the patterning of hypopigmentation. We have confirmed that an Ednrb(s) modifier locus is present on mouse Chromosome 10. This locus is now termed k10, using the nomenclature established by Dunn in 1920. The k10(Mayer) allele is a recessive modifier that accounts for almost all of the genetic variance of dorsal hypopigmentation. Using intercross analyses we identified a second allele of this locus or a closely linked gene termed k10(C3H). The k10(C3H) allele is semidominant and is associated with the penetrance and expressivity of a white forelock phenotype similar to that seen in Waardenburg syndrome. Molecular linkage analysis was used to determine that the k10 critical interval was flanked by D10Mit10 and D10Mit162/D10Mit122 and cosegregates with mast cell growth factor (Mgf). Complementation crosses with a Mgf(Sl) allele (a 3-5-cM deletion) confirm the semidominant white forelock feature of the k10(C3H) allele and the dorsal spotting feature of K10(Mayer) allele. MgF was assessed as a candidate gene for k10(Mayer) and k10(C3H) by sequence and genomic analyses. No molecular differences were observed between the Mayer and C57BL/6J alleles of MgF; however, extensive genomic differences were observed between the C3HeB/FeJ and C57BL/6J alleles. This suggests that alteration of MgF expression in C3H mice may account for the k10(C3H) action on white forelock hypopigmentation. Crosses of Ednrb(s) with Kit(WJ-2) (the receptor for MGF)-deficient mice confirmed the hypothesis that synergistic interaction between the Endothelin and MGF signaling pathways regulates proper neural crest-derived melanocyte development in vivo.  (+info)

Tietz syndrome (hypopigmentation/deafness) caused by mutation of MITF. (6/94)

Patients with Tietz syndrome have congenital profound deafness and generalised hypopigmentation, inherited in a fully penetrant autosomal dominant fashion. The pigmentary features and complete penetrance make this syndrome distinct among syndromes with pigmentary anomalies and deafness, which characteristically have patchy depigmentation and variable penetrance. Only one family has been reported with the exact features described in the original report of this syndrome. This family was reascertained and a missense mutation was found in the basic region of the MITF gene in family members with Tietz syndrome. Mutations in other regions of this gene have been found to produce Waardenburg syndrome type 2 (WS2), which also includes pigmentary changes and hearing loss, but in contrast to Tietz syndrome, depigmentation is patchy and hearing loss is variable in WS2.  (+info)

Oa1 knock-out: new insights on the pathogenesis of ocular albinism type 1. (7/94)

Ocular albinism type I (OA1) is an X-linked disorder characterized by severe reduction of visual acuity, strabismus, photophobia and nystagmus. Ophthalmologic examination reveals hypopigmentation of the retina, foveal hypoplasia and iris translucency. Microscopic examination of both retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and skin melanocytes shows the presence of large pigment granules called giant melanosomes or macromelanosomes. In this study, we have generated and characterized Oa1-deficient mice by gene targeting (KO). The KO males are viable, fertile and phenotypically indistinguishable from the wild-type littermates. Ophthalmologic examination shows hypopigmentation of the ocular fundus in mutant animals compared with wild-type. Analysis of the retinofugal pathway reveals a reduction in the size of the uncrossed pathway, demonstrating a misrouting of the optic fibres at the chiasm, as observed in OA1 patients. Microscopic examination of the RPE shows the presence of giant melanosomes comparable with those described in OA1 patients. Ultrastructural analysis of the RPE cells, suggests that the giant melanosomes may form by abnormal growth of single melanosomes, rather than the fusion of several, shedding light on the pathogenesis of ocular albinism.  (+info)

Ophthalmic manifestations of tuberous sclerosis: a population based study. (8/94)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) has retinal and non-retinal ophthalmic manifestations. This study was designed to determine the prevalence of the ophthalmic manifestations and of refractive errors in a population of patients with TSC. METHODS: 179 patients identified were in a prevalence study of TSC in the south of England and 107 of these agreed to full ophthalmic examination which was successful in 100. Ophthalmic examination included examination of the eyelids, cover test, examination of the irides, dilation funduscopy using both direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy, and refraction using retinoscopy. Myopia was defined as a spherical equivalent <-0.5D and hyperopia as a spherical equivalent >+0.5D. RESULTS: Retinal hamartomas were seen in 44 of the 100 patients. The commonest morphological type of hamartoma seen was the flat, translucent lesion in 31 of the 44 patients (70%). The multinodular "mulberry" lesion was seen in 24 of the 44 patients (55%) and the transitional type lesion was seen in four of the 44 patients (9%). Punched out areas of retinal depigmentation were seen in 39 of the 100 patients but only six of 100 controls. 27% of eyes were myopic, 22% were hyperopic, and 27% had astigmatism >0.75D. Of the non-retinal findings, 39 patients had angiofibromas of the eyelids, five had non-paralytic strabismus, and three had colobomas. CONCLUSION: Apart from the higher prevalence of flat retinal hamartomas, the findings of this study compare closely with previous large clinic based series of TSC patients. Refractive findings were similar to previous studies of a similarly aged non-TSC population. This is the first series to document the statistically significant association of punched out chorioretinal depigmentation with TSC and the authors believe that it should be looked for as an aid to diagnosis.  (+info)

Purpose:: The zebrafish mutant, golden, is hypopigmented due to a mutation in a novel cation exchanger, NCKX5 (SLC24A5). Pigmentation has been shown, at least epidemiologically, to be an important factor in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In addition, NCKX5 has been demonstrated in human RPE, and the gene encoding NCKX5 is located on chromosome 15q21, a region that also has a major susceptibility locus associated with AMD. The aim of this study is to evaluate the morphologic features of the retina/RPE of the golden zebrafish in comparison with human AMD in order to establish a possible animal model for this disease. Methods:: Wildtype (Lyles) and mutant (golden, golb1) zebrafish (sacrificed in light) were fixed in paraformaldehyde or glutaraldehyde. Eyes were removed and investigated by light (LM) or electron microscopy (EM), respectively. 22 eyes were obtained from wildtype (wt), age range 8-34 months, and 18 from golden, age range 9-33 months. Results:: By LM, there was an obvious ...

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive Considered a defect: no Key variant known: yes Year key variant first reported: 2015 Key variant is published: no Species-specific symbol: OH History: As reported by Hollman et al. (2017), via a personal communication from Dr Jon Beever, Recently an alteration of iris coloration has been observed in Angus and Simmental breed. Affected cattle showed an oculocutaneous hypopigmentation (OH) with a pale blue iris and a tan periphery coupled with a change in coat color from black to chocolate. It is assumed that this aberration was introduced into the Simmental breed in the late 1950s by Angus founders and is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. As described by Dr Beever in a 2015 press release from the American Simmental Association (Anon., 2015), In the spring of 2012, the American Simmental Association (ASA) received an abnormality report indicating the occurrence of a newborn calf with white-colored eyes and a ...

The photopathology of retinal lesions produced by extended exposure (1000 sec) to low corneal power levels (62 microW) of blue light (441 nm) was investigated by light microscopy in 20 rhesus eyes over an interval ranging from 1 hr to 90 days after exposure. Results indicate a nonthermal type of photochemical lesion originating in the retinal pigment epithelium and leading to a histological response with hypopigmentation which requires 48 hr to appear. This type of lesion helps to explain solar retinitis and eclipse blindness and has significance for aging and degenerative changes in the retina.. ...

Progressive macular hypomelanosis (PMH) is an acquired disorder of skin pigmentation, which is mostly under-diagnosed. It is characterized by nummular hypopigmented lesions appearing on the trunk in young persons. Several treatment options are available, although topical clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide have been used traditionally. However, good results have recently been achieved using narrow-band ultraviolet B (NBUVB) phototherapy. We present the case of a 13-year-old girl with hypopigmented lesions on the trunk and limbs that had progressed over 1 year and that were diagnosed as PMH. The patient was initially treated with topical clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide. However, little improvement was seen and treatment was then started with NBUVB phototherapy. After 25 sessions, with a total cumulative dose of 18 J/cm2, the patient showed almost total repigmentation of the lesions. The treatment of PMH is often difficult, and very little is currently known about the treatment response in this ...

The skin findings associated with hypomelanosis of Ito include small patches of pale or white skin that merge to form larger, asymmetric patches arranged in whorled or linear patterns. These patterns follow the lines of Blaschko which represent a developmental pattern of the skin. The pale or hypopigmented areas can be found in any part of the body including the head, face, neck, trunk and extremities. Typically a v-shape pattern is seen over the face and spine, an s-shape pattern is seen over the trunk, and a linear pattern is seen over the extremities. Additionally, it is important to note that the hypopigmentation is not preceded by vesicular or verrucous stages as this is a hallmark of another disorder that appears similar to hypomelanosis of Ito, known as incontinentia pigmenti.. Hair abnormalities can also be seen with hypomelanosis of Ito and can include changes in hair color, hair breakage and/or loss as well as hair with a white-gray color.. Individuals with hypomelanosis of Ito may ...

Eye pigmentation abnormalities in cattle are often related to albinism, Chediak-Higashi or Tietz like syndrome. However, mutations only affecting pigmentation of coat color and eye have also been described. Herein 18 Holstein Friesian cattle affected by bicolored and hypopigmented irises have been investigated. Affected animals did not reveal any ophthalmological or neurological abnormalities besides the specific iris color differences. Coat color of affected cattle did not differ from controls. Histological examination revealed a reduction of melanin pigment in the iridal anterior border layer and stroma in cases as cause of iris hypopigmentation. To analyze the genetics of the iris pigmentation differences, a genome-wide association study was performed using Illumina BovineSNP50 BeadChip genotypes of the 18 cases and 172 randomly chosen control animals. A significant association on bovine chromosome 8 (BTA8) was identified at position 60,990,733 with a -log10(p) = 9.17. Analysis of genotypic and
White nails or leukonychia is the most common chromatic abnormality of the nails 1. Leukonychia may be acquired or inherited and can be divided into (a) true leukonychia due to matrix involvement, (b) apparent leukonychia due to subungual tissue abnormality, and (c) pseudoleukonychia due to external factors affecting the nail plate 1.. Acquired leukonychia may be caused by a wide range of abnormalities; however, it is frequently associated with trauma (most common), drugs such as chemotherapeutic agents 2, infections, liver cirrhosis, ulcerative colitis or leprosy, hypocalcaemia and various dermatoses among others 1.. The clinical presentation of leukonychia ranges from complete nail whitening to discrete white punctata or striae 3. True leukonychia punctata is the most common form of leukonychia, in which small white spots appear on the nails as a result of repeated minor trauma to the matrix, such as picking and biting of the nails in young children and nail biters 1,4.. ...
Leukonychia (or leuconychia), also known as white nails or milk spots, is a medical term for white discolouration appearing on nails. It is derived from the Greek words leuko (white) and nychia (nails). The most common cause is injury to the base of the nail (the matrix) where the nail is formed. It is harmless and most commonly caused by minor injuries, such as nail biting, that occur while the nail is growing. Leukonychia occurs most commonly in healthy individuals, unrelated to any known nutritional or physiological deficiency. When caused by injury the marks will disappear as the nail grows outwards, however a dietary deficiency will cause recurrent leukonychia. Other possible reasons for this problem with nail colour can be linked to: Arsenic poisoning Lead poisoning Pneumonia Heart disease Renal failure Ill health Hypoalbuminemia Vitamin deficiency Ulcerative colitis Hepatic cirrhosis Psychogenic stresses Onychophagia Occupational trauma Zinc deficiency Protein deficiency Psoriasis as ...

I was sitting at my orthodontists chair when my orthodontists assistant, who was doing some work in my mouth, said: You have discoloration on your chin, I see. Here it comes again, I thought. One more comment about my hypo. As if I needed a reminder, I thought. Yep, I replied. Ive had it for 12 years. Wow, thats a long time, she said. My mother and I have it too, but we got it under control, she said. I immediately jumped out of the chair and took a look at her face. Not one sign of discoloration. HOW DID YOU GET RID OF IT? I asked. Well, she said, I was on treatment for years and years without success. The latest technology on the market is a cleaning solution that I was supposed to use to clean the area first. That solution cost me about $300. After I prepared the affected area with the solution, I was supposed to put on a cream which cost me about $1,000 a tube. Im not using that anymore. LET ME BUY IT FROM YOU! I exclaimed. I had gone to the dermatologist a ...
Familial progressive cardiac conduction defect (PCCD) is a is a cardiac (heart) conduction disorder that may progress to complete heart block. Affected people may not have any symptoms, or the condition may cause shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, abdominal pain, heart failure, or sudden death. Mutations in several genes, including the SCN5A, SCN1B and TRPM4 genes, can cause PCCD. Several other genes may be the cause when PCCD occurs with congenital heart disease. Familial PCCD is usually inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. However, not all people that have the mutated gene will have the condition; in those that do, symptoms and severity can vary (known as reduced penetrance and variable expressivity). Autosomal recessive inheritance and sporadic cases have been reported, but are rare. Treatment includes implantation of a pacemaker ...

Griscelli syndrome (GS; MIM 214450) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that results in a characteristic pigmentary dilution of the skin and the hair, with the presence of large clumps of pigment in hair shafts and an abnormal accumulation of end-stage melanosomes in the center of melanocytes (1-4). So far, two forms of GS have been described. Type 1 (GS1) associates characteristic albinism with a severe primary neurological impairment. Patients exhibit severe developmental delay and mental retardation occurring early in life. These patients carry mutations of the myosin 5A gene (MYO5A) (2), which encodes an organelle motor protein, Myosin Va (MyoVa), with a determining role in neuron function (5). The second type of Griscelli syndrome (GS2) is characterized by the same hypopigmentation associated with an immune defect, leading to episodes of a life-threatening uncontrolled T lymphocyte and macrophage activation syndrome known as accelerated phase or hemophagocytic syndrome (HS) (6). During ...

I am a 50-year-old brown skinned man. During the preceding couple of months, 8-10 |b|white spots, 2-4 mm in diameter, have developed|/b| on my right shin, right thigh, left forearm, near left palm, left side of waist, and abdomen. In addition, some pale and many black/dark brown spots have also appeared on both my legs, thighs, forearms, waist and abdomen. Till now, the total number of light coloured/pale spots is 10-12 and that of black/dark brown is 15-20. There is no significant increase in the size or number of the white spots during the last one month. However, the number of light coloured and black spots has gone up a little. Almost all spots are smooth and not causing any discomfort. I have consulted two dermatologists. One says it is vitiligo. However, the other says it is idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis (IGH), a common problem of middle-aged people and has not recommended any treatment for it. I am totally confused and under severe psychological stress of vitiligo and dont understand what to
Having skin discoloration such as hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation can be life-altering. Hypopigmentation shows up as a loss of pigment in splotches on the skin, and on the other hand, hyperpigmentation comes forth as darker pigment than the natural skin color.

Statistics has shown that between 35 and 70 million people worldwide live with vitiligo.. Generally, signs of vitiligo begin to appear before the age of 20, but they can show up at any time. Beneath the skin, vitiligo can be associated with a greater risk of certain medical issues like celiac diseases, Type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.. Causes of Vitiligo. The exact cause of vitiligo is still unknown. Scientists and doctors have theories about causes of this disorder. The most common form being an autoimmune disease, which means that a persons own immune system accidentally attacks the skin pigment cells also known as melanocytes. And as a result can no longer produce pigments in normal amount, which then causes the skin to turn white (de-pigmentation). Heredity may also be a factor as there are increased incidents of vitiligo in some families. Some believe single events such as sunburn or emotional distress triggers this condition. However, none of these theories has been proved to be ...

0041] The protrusions 110 can be provided with an approximately circular cross-sectional shape. The cross-sectional shape can refer to the shape of a section that is substantially parallel to the lower surface of the base 120 and/or substantially parallel to the skin surface when the protrusions 110 are contacting the skin surface. Other cross-sectional shapes may be used, such as square, rectangular, hexagonal, ovoid, and the like. Further, the cross-sectional shape of the distal or tip portion of the protrusions 110 can have a different cross-sectional shape than other portions of the protrusions 110. For example, the distal end of a protrusion 110 can be provided with a substantially circular cross-sectional shape, whereas a proximal portion of the protrusion 110 can be square or rectangular in cross section. The distal portion of the protrusions 110 can have cross-sectional shapes, for example, that are round, square, polygonal, ovoid, or irregular. Other shapes can also be used. The ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Vitiligo following intense pulsed light treatment. AU - Shin, Jung U.. AU - Roh, Mi Ryung. AU - Lee, Ju Hee. PY - 2010/7. Y1 - 2010/7. N2 - Vitiligo is an acquired depigmenting disorder characterized by the progressive loss of melanocytes from the epidermis and epidermal appendages, which results in milky-white macular lesions. Various factors are suspected to affect the induction and progression of vitiligo such as emotional shock, sunburn, pregnancy, physical illness and trauma. The intense pulsed light (IPL) device which mostly affects redness and dyspigmentation has a broad spectrum of emissions of white light with wavelengths between approximately 515 and 1200 nm. Adverse effects such as purpura and pigmentary changes are known to be rare. We present a 41-year-old woman who developed multiple round, hypopigmented macules on both the cheek and mandibular area following the treatment with IPL for lentigines and dyspigmentation. Based on biopsy and Woods lamp examination, ...

It has been determined that the pearl phenotype arises from mutation in the Ap3b1 gene, which encodes the b3A subunit of the AP-3 adaptor complex, which in turn regulates vesicular trafficking. It has been demonstrated that depletion of the b3A subunit in the pearl mouse results in the depletion of the whole AP-3 adaptor complex which in turn leads to abnormalities of biogenesis/function of subcellular organelles like lysosomes, melanosomes and platelet dense granules. ...

This disorder has a wide variety of clinical features and many occur in only a few patients. The skin has focal areas of hypoplasia with hypopigmentation, often appearing in a streak or linear pattern. These areas may be present at birth and contain bullae or urticarial lesions with signs of inflammation. Telangiectases and herniated fat may appear in these areas. Oral, esophageal, and laryngeal fibrovascular papillomas occur but they may also be seen in the perineal, vulvar, and perianal areas. These may be large, friable, and recurrent. The teeth erupt late and are usually hypoplastic. The nails are often dysplastic and the hands and feet may be split with syndactyly of the third and fourth fingers giving a lobster claw appearance. Polydactyly may be present. Most have thin protruding ears. A variety of skeletal anomalies have been reported including absence of metatarsals and metacarpals. A considerable number of patients have mild to moderate mental deficits. Severely affected females ...
Kamada S., Shimono A., Shinto Y., Tsujimura T., Takahashi T., Noda T., Kitamura Y., Kondoh H., Tsujimoto Y.. Transgenic mice homozygously lacking in the bcl-2 gene were generated using homologous recombination in embryonal stem cells. The complete absence of Bcl-2 alpha and -beta proteins did not interfere with normal embryonic development. Abnormalities became evident after birth, although the severity varied among homozygous null mice, bcl-2-/-mice displayed pleiotropic abnormalities similar to those in the previously described bcl-2-/-mice, including growth retardation, smaller ears, short lives, polycystic kidney, atrophic thymus and spleen with accelerated apoptotic cell death of lymphocytes, and hair hypopigmentation in the second hair follicle cycle. Our bcl-2-/-mice also revealed novel defects in the small intestine, characterized by retarded development, accelerated exfoliation of epithelial cells, and very few mitotic progenitor cells..

How does laser skin resurfacing work?. Its all about using beams of light. Your licensed and certified provider uses the laser to send short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner one layer at a time.. The laser beam used in laser resurfacing removes the outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. It simultaneously heats the underlying skin, called the dermis. This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.. Laser skin resurfacings targeted approach means there are fewer problems with hypopigmentation, or a lightening of skin for procedures such as laser acne scar reduction.. Ablative Lasers vs. Non-Ablative Lasers. In general, laser resurfacing treatments fall under one of two categories: ablative lasers and non-ablative lasers. Both ablative and non-ablative resurfacing can give you dramatic improvements, but they do differ ...

According to the American Academy of Dermatology and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, ultraviolet (UV) radiation from tanning beds, tanning booths and sun lamps are known carcinogens (cancer-causing substances). Exposure to UV radiation during indoor tanning has been proven to increase the risk of all skin cancers, including melanomas, squamous cell carcinomas and basal cell carcinomas. In fact, the risk of melanoma increases by 75 percent when indoor tanning devices are used before the age of 30. The UV radiation during indoor tanning also leads to skin aging, hyper - and hypopigmentation, immune suppression and eye damage, such as cataracts.. Therefore, the use of tanning beds, tanning booths and sun lamps is not recommended by dermatologists.. ...

A 6 month old infant was seen by doctors on the 16th July at one of our mobile medical clinics in rural Zambia. The rash developed 1 week before attending clinic. Some lesions were crusting and the rash was present on the face, arms, back and buttocks. The rash did not appear to be bothering the infant and there was no fever or systemic symptoms. The infant was otherwise fit and well, HIV negative and had been seen previously by our doctors at which time there was no evident rash. This rash had been treated by the community health worker with IM benzylpenicillin with some effect.. We sent the case to a Professor specialising in Paediatric Dermatology from the USA.. This very prominent facial rash with an overall annular scaly appearance and impressive hypopigmentation is characteristic of NEONATAL LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSIS, a rare disorder in which infants have maternal antibodies (SS-A, SS-B sometimes called Ro and La antibodies, rarely RNP antibodies) which are photosensitizing so the rash appears ...
