An iatrogenic epidemic of benign meningioma. (1/37)

Head irradiation, the acceptable mode of treatment for tinea capitis in the past, is recognized today as a causative factor for meningioma. This treatment was applied en mass to immigrants coming to Israel from North Africa and the Middle East during the 1950s. In order to estimate the effect of the differential radiation treatment on the rates of meningioma in the total population, the authors assessed time trends of this disease in Israel over the past 40 years by main ethnic origin. Cohort analysis shows a marked incidence rise in the North African-born cohorts born in 1940-1954 starting from the 1980s. A similar pattern is seen in the Middle Eastern born, although the increase is not as sharp. In consequence, there is a crossover of the interethnic incidence curves in the 1940-1949 cohort. Comparison of the relative risk between 1940-1954 cohorts that comprised most of the irradiated with 1930-1939 cohorts, who were largely free of the radiation, shows that the North African born have the largest relative risk of 4.62, followed by the Middle Eastern born, with a relative risk of 1.95, while the European-American born have a relative risk close to 1. The differences between the three areas of birth are statistically significant. The data illustrate the potential risk of administering highly potent therapy for an essentially benign disease that led, in turn, to a drastic change in the national meningioma pattern.  (+info)

Practical management of hair loss. (2/37)

OBJECTIVE: To describe an organized diagnostic approach for both nonscarring and scarring alopecias to help family physicians establish an accurate in-office diagnosis. To explain when ancillary laboratory workup is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Current diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for hair loss are based on randomized controlled studies, uncontrolled studies, and case series. MEDLINE was searched from January 1966 to December 1998 with the MeSH words alopecia, hair, and alopecia areata. Articles were selected on the basis of experimental design, with priority given to the most current large multicentre controlled studies. Overall global evidence for therapeutic intervention for hair loss is quite strong. MAIN MESSAGE: The most common forms of nonscarring alopecias are androgenic alopecia, telogen effluvium, and alopecia areata. Other disorders include trichotillomania, traction alopecia, tinea capitis, and hair shaft abnormalities. Scarring alopecia is caused by trauma, infections, discoid lupus erythematosus, or lichen planus. Key to establishing an accurate diagnosis is a detailed history, including medication use, systemic illnesses, endocrine dysfunction, hair-care practices, and family history. All hair-bearing sites should be examined. A 4-mm punch biopsy of the scalp is useful, particularly to diagnose scarring alopecias. Once a diagnosis has been established, specific therapy can be initiated. CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis and management of hair loss is an interesting challenge for family physicians. An organized approach to recognizing characteristic differential features of hair loss disorders is key to diagnosis and management.  (+info)

Tinea capitis: study of asymptomatic carriers and sick adolescents, adults and elderly who live with children with the disease. (3/37)

Tinea capitis is a dermatophyte infection that occurs mainly in childhood; there are few reports, in Brazil, in adolescents and adults. The detection of asymptomatic carriers is of great importance in the disease control. From February 1998 to February 1999, a study was performed at the outpatient Dermatologic Unit of Instituto de Puericultura e Pediatria Martagao Gesteira (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil) to verify the frequency of asymptomatic carriers and tinea capitis between 79 adolescents, adults and elderly who lived in the same household of 56 children (0-12 years) with tinea capitis. Of these, one female and one male adults (2.5%) were asymptomatic carriers and the cultures revealed Trichophyton tonsurans and Microsporum canis respectively. One female adolescent and two female adults (3.8%) had tinea capitis and all cultures revealed Trichophyton tonsurans. The study has shown that adolescents and adults who live in the same household of children with tinea capitis may be sick or asymptomatic carriers.  (+info)

Tinea capitis infection in school children of Nepal. (4/37)

From among 428 Nepalese schoolchildren hair samples of 102 children with clinical features of tinea capitis, obtained by the sterile hairbrush method, were examined by mycological techniques. Age varied between 4-16 years. Itching was experienced by 96.1% sample subjects and hair loss by 32.4%. Of the 102, 11 (10.8%) were positive for Trichophyton violaceum (TV), 6 being from urban areas, the rest from rural areas. Amongst the 11 patients, 7 (63.6%) were girls and rest boys. Statistical associations were observed between the place of haircut and isolation of the organism (chi2 = 15.2, p <0.01). Statistical association was also present between frequency of bathing and isolation of organism. Sharing of combs was associated with the culture-positive subjects. The prevalence of tinea capitis in the urban and rural children was 2.3% and 3.0%, respectively. The only isolated organism was TV. An association of the isolation of TV was found with risk factors such as family members, sharing of combs, frequency of bathing with the organism. Hair loss was more common in the urban children. Discouragement of sharing combs, increased frequency of hair washing, and use of uncontaminated hair cutting instruments are recommended.  (+info)

A possible association between ionizing radiation and pituitary adenoma: a descriptive study. (5/37)

BACKGROUND: Despite the recognition of ionizing radiation as a causal risk factor for a variety of solid tumors (including brain tumors), to date, such an association with pituitary adenoma (PA) has not been demonstrated. METHODS: To evaluate a possible association between past exposure to radiation and the occurrence of PA, the authors reviewed about 4900 medical records of patients who had been irradiated in childhood for tinea capitis. An additional search for patients was performed using the Israel Cancer Registry. The average radiation dose to the pituitary gland was estimated as 0.56 grays, and, for all patients, a meticulous validation of the irradiation was performed. RESULTS: A group of 16 patients who developed symptomatic PA after childhood exposure to radiotherapy were identified. Overall, the clinical and demographic characteristics of these patients were similar to other series reported in the literature. There was an apparently high rate of second primary tumors (25%), all of them in the irradiated area, diagnosed among this group. The methodologic issues that limit the demonstration of a possible association between radiation and PA and the epidemiologic and experimental findings in the literature are discussed. CONCLUSIONS: In view of the ample amount of evidence identifying low-dose ionizing radiation as a risk factor for a number of intracranial tumors as well as for tumors arising in endocrine organs, a radiation immunity of the pituitary gland is difficult to accept. Hence, the authors suggest that this series should be considered as preliminary observation that supports the role of ionizing radiation in the development of this tumor.  (+info)

Secondary bacterial infections complicating skin lesions. (6/37)

Secondary bacterial infection in skin lesions is a common problem. This review summarises a series of studies of the microbiology of several of these infections: scabies, psoriasis, poison ivy, atopic dermatitis, eczema herpeticum and kerion. Staphylococcus aureus and group A beta-haemolytic streptococci were the most prevalent aerobes and were isolated from all body sites. In contrast, organisms that reside in the mucous membranes close to the lesions predominated in infections next to these membranes. In this fashion, enteric gram-negative bacilli and Bacteroides spp. were found most often in buttock and leg lesions. The probable sources of these organisms are the rectum and vagina, where they normally reside. Group A beta-haemolytic streptococci, pigmented Prevotella and Porphyromonas spp. and Fusobacterium spp. were most commonly found in lesions of the head, face, neck and fingers. These organisms probably reached these sites from the oral cavity, where they are part of the normal flora. This review highlights the polymicrobial aerobic-anaerobic microbiology of secondarily infected skin lesions.  (+info)

Common hair loss disorders. (7/37)

Hair loss (alopecia) affects men and women of all ages and often significantly affects social and psychologic well-being. Although alopecia has several causes, a careful history, dose attention to the appearance of the hair loss, and a few simple studies can quickly narrow the potential diagnoses. Androgenetic alopecia, one of the most common forms of hair loss, usually has a specific pattern of temporal-frontal loss in men and central thinning in women. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved topical minoxidil to treat men and women, with the addition of finasteride for men. Telogen effluvium is characterized by the loss of "handfuls" of hair, often following emotional or physical stressors. Alopecia areata, trichotillomania, traction alopecia, and tinea capitis have unique features on examination that aid in diagnosis. Treatment for these disorders and telogen effluvium focuses on resolution of the underlying cause.  (+info)

Ant-induced alopecia: report of 2 cases and review of the literature. (8/37)

Localized scalp hair loss is associated with many processes, including alopecia areata, trichotillomania, tinea capitis, and early lupus erythematosus. There are several reports of localized alopecia after tick- and flea-bites and bee stings, but there are only two reports of ant-induced alopecia in the literature. We present two cases of alopecia induced by ants of genus Pheidole (species pallidula) and review the literature for insect-induced alopecia. Ant-induced alopecia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of localized sudden-onset alopecia, at least in some geographic areas of the world.  (+info)

Tinea capitis, or scalp ringworm, is an exogenous infection. Psoriasis (including plaque and pustular varieties). Conventional sampling of a kerion (pus-filled boggy mass which looks like a bacterial abscess) can be difficult. Steroids were once thought to be useful to reduce scarring but are no longer recommended for the treatment of kerion or indeed any other type of tinea capitis infection. The only difference between the ringworm and psoriasis is that in psoriasis the Autonomic Nervous System is underperforming and fungus can spread. There are three type of tinea capitis, microsporosis, trichophytosis, and favus; Tiniea capitis may be difficult to distinguish from other skin diseases that cause scaling, such as psoriasis and seborrhoeic dermatitis; the basis for the diagnosis is positive microscopic examination and microbial culture of epilated hairs. Some are conditions confined to the scalp (e.g., tinea capitis, also called ringworm), some are scalp manifestations of a more general or ...
Whereas all three genera attack the skin, Microsporum does not infect nails and Epidermophyton does not infect hair. Tinea capitis is caused by dermatophyte fungi, species in the genera Microsporum and Trichophyton. Single fungus can produce more than one clinical type of tinea capitis. Hair shaft infection is preceded by invasion of the stratum corneum of the scalp. Because of the cuticle, the fungi cannot cross over from the perifollicular stratum corneum into the hair but must go deep into the hair follicle to circumvent the cuticle. This helps explain why topical antifungals fail to treat tinea capitis. The fungus grows down through stratum corneum layer into the hair follicle and gains entry into the hair in the lower intrafollicular zone, just below the point where the cuticle of the hair shaft is formed. Thus, infection originates inside the hair shaft in all patterns of hair invasion. The growth of hyphae occurs within the hair above the zone of keratinization of the hair shaft (Adamson ...
Tinea Capitis is also known as scalp ringworm. Tinea capitis may present with itchy, dry, erythematous ring like lesion which appear on the scalp. The lesions may present as an area of alopecia.
In Brazil, from 1959 to 1995, one case was reported in adolescent (sex not related), with isolation of T. tonsurans35 and four cases in female adults, with isolation of T. tonsurans (2 cases) and M. canis (2 cases)31,34,40,43.. T. tonsurans can cause infection with no evidence of clinical disease5, what makes its control difficult. A healthy adult carrier can reinfect the children5 and has epidemiological implications because silent focuses of infection are more difficult to detect and eradicate19.. The following criteria define the asymptomatic carrier state: 1) no clinical signs of tinea capitis: alopecia, scaling, erythema, broken hairs, black dots, crusts, inflammatory lesions, favus and pruritus5,19,44; and, 2) infected hairs, with isolation of the dermatophyte5,7,30,37,42,44,45,51.. The asymptomatic carriers among children and adolescents are observed in percentages varying from 0.2 37.2%, occurring mainly in female, with predilection of anthropophilic dermatophytes; in adults, in ...

PMID: 972927, UI: 77013736 This study is a further investigation of radiation dose to various head structures in the children given X-ray therapy for tinea capitis (ringworm of the scalp). In this work, estimates of the dose to the thyroid and pituitary gland were obtained with lithium fluoride thermoluminescent dosemeters using a childs head phantom. Doses were also measured for the parotid gland and several skin sites where skin tumours developed in the irradiated cases. In a previous study, brain and scalp doses of 140 and 500-800 rad had been estimated for the treated group using this same head phantom. In this work dosemeters were also placed in the same brain locations so that comparisons could be obtained between the two studies. The thyroid dose was estimated to be 6 +/- 2 rad and the pituitary dose was 49 +/- 6 rad for the conventional tinea capitis treatment. The dose to the parotid gland was 39 rad and the dose to skin sites on the face and neck where tumours occurred ranged from 20 ...

Rapid in office testing can be done with scraping of the nail, skin, or scalp. Characteristic hyphae can be seen interspersed among the epithelial cells. Trichophyton tonsurans, the causative agent of tinea capitis (scalp infection) can be seen as solidly packed arthrospores within the broken hairshafts scraped from the plugged black dots of the scalp.. Fungal culture medium is used for positive identification of the species. Usually fungal growth is noted in 5 to 14 days. Microscopic morphology of the micro- and macroconidia is the most reliable identification character, but a good slide preparation is needed, and also needed is the stimulation of sporulation in some strains. Culture characteristics such as surface texture, topography and pigmentation are variable so they are the least reliable criteria for identification. Clinical information such as the appearance of the lesion, site, geographic location, travel history, animal contacts and race is also important, especially in identifying ...
Once they enter school, the most common fungal infection in children is tinea capitis, which is usually caused by Trichophyton tonsurans. Clinical findings may include dandruff-like flaking, with minimal or no hair loss.. Because clinical findings may be subtle and nondiagnostic, confirmation of the diagnosis by microscopic examination or fungal culture is necessary. The traditional method of obtaining a culture consisted of scraping scale and hair with a no. 15 scalpel blade or plucking hairs from the scalp. Either of these methods may be difficult to use with a small, uncooperative child. Other methods have included using toothbrushes, hairbrushes, wet gauze and adhesive tape to collect specimens. A potassium hydroxide test is useful in the diagnosis of cutaneous fungal infections, but assessment of hair and scalp samples is often difficult to interpret, and interobserver variability is high. Friedlander and associates compared the accuracy of the cotton swab technique with that of the ...

Background Microsporum audouinii (M. audouinii) is an anthropophilic dermatophyte responsible for tinea capitis in young children. Infections caused by this species are very contagious and are responsible for outbreaks in schools and communities. Different proteases are produced by dermatophytes to digest tissue keratin. Among these proteases metalloproteases (Mep) have already been described as potential virulence factors in different zoonotic species such as Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Microsporum canis. In the present study, primers targeting five metalloproteases Mep1-5 have been designed to screen a large scale of Microsporum audouinii strains isolated in Belgium. Material and methods A total of 84 strains of M.audouinii were included in this study. This ...

In most cases, the skin becomes white, soft and peels away between the toes (especially between the fourth and little toes). Fungal transmission occurs through direct contact with infected persons, animals, soil or fomites. Tinea capitis (also called ringworm of the scalp) is a skin disorder that affects children almost exclusively. It can be persistent and contagious, almost to the point of epidemic; however, it often disappears spontaneously at puberty. Although ringworm can affect almost any area of the body, it favors places that are dark and moist, such as skin in the groin area, the spaces between the toes and the deep skin folds of obese people. It looks like a round or oval sore with a red outline, and can be itchy.The classic presentation of tinea infection, known as ringworm, is a lesion with central ...

A 64-year-old man, phototype V in Fitzpatrick scale, presented with a 5-year history of a slowly extending ulcer of the scalp. He had a past medical history of diabetes mellitus and ionizing radiation for tinea capitis in childhood. The physical examination revealed an oval-shaped ulcer measuring 7 cm in width x 5 cm in length, with a raised pigmented border; the center was alopecic, scattered by hemorrhagic, necrotic and crusted erosions. He had neither cervical enlarged lymph nodes nor visceromegaly. The histopathological study of the biopsy specimen confirmed the diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma. A combined cranial, thoracic, abdominal and pelvic computed tomography scan was normal. Particularly, there was no adjacent bone involvement. A surgical excision with reconstruction was undergone. No signs of dissemination or local recurrence have been detected after follow up of two years. We still observe on the 21st century cases of giant basal cell carcinoma. In our case multiple factors could explain

Neuroepithelial tumors. Astrocytic tumors. An increased risk of astrocytic tumors has been observed in patients who receive therapeutic radiation therapy for pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngioma, pineal parenchymal tumors, germinoma, and tinea capitis. In addition, children who receive prophylactic radiation therapy of the CNS for acute lymphoblastic leukemia have an increased risk of developing astrocytomas. Recurrent lesions often signal histologic progression to a higher grade; this malignant progression is associated with a cumulative acquisition of multiple genetic alterations. [4] Pilocytic astrocytoma (WHO grade I) is a grossly circumscribed, slow-growing, often cystic tumor that occurs primarily in children and young adults. [5] Histologically, pilocytic astrocytomas are composed of varying proportions of compacted bipolar cells with Rosenthal fibers and loose-textured multipolar cells with microcysts and granular bodies. This tumor is the most common glioma in children and represents ...

Similar to tumorigenesis in other tissues, development of meningiomas is likely to result from complex interactions between genes and environment. The etiological role of environmental factors in meningioma development has been suggested for ionizing radiation, diet, smoking, head trauma, and occupational exposures to carcinogenic substances. Of these factors, the evidence is convincing only for an association between ionizing radiation and meningiomas. Elevated risk of meningioma development was shown in studies involving patients who received a low-dose radiation therapy for childhood tinea capitis. Meningiomas were also found to occur years after any type of therapeutic cranial irradiation. Moreover, an increased incidence of meningiomas has been recently reported in survivors of atomic bomb explosions. Radiation-induced meningiomas are often aggressive or malignant. They are also.
