  • instead they are usually the result of wound colonization, opportunistic infections secondary to decreased resistance (often the result of viral infections), or secondary to other conditions (pyoderma secondary to skin allergies or pyometra secondary to cystic endometrial hyperplasia). (wikipedia.org)
  • In the case of endometrial hyperplasia usually a Pap smear is done, also a biopsy during the pelvic examination, may be done of the individuals endometrial tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Endometrial hyperplasia - Hyperproliferation of the endometrium, usually in response to unopposed estrogen stimulation in the setting of polycystic ovary syndrome or exogenous administration of hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • Atypical endometrial hyperplasia may represent an early neoplastic process which can lead to endometrial adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • The development of endometrial adenocarcinoma from endometrial hyperplasia is a typical example of how the effects of pathologic hyperplasia can lead to neoplasia, and females who exhibit hyperplasia of the endometrium are indeed more likely to develop cancer of these cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • ductal
  • Hyperplasia of the breast - "Hyperplastic" lesions of the breast include usual ductal hyperplasia, a focal expansion of the number of cells in a terminal breast duct, and atypical ductal hyperplasia, in which a more abnormal pattern of growth is seen, and which is associated with an increased risk of developing breast cancer.

  • recurrence
  • These latter two factors do not cause ear disease in their own right but may prevent resolution of the disease and lead to recurrence if they are not dealt with adequately. (bmj.com)
  • affects

  • Fordyce
  • Fordyce spots (also termed Fordyce granules are visible sebaceous glands that are present in most individuals. (wikipedia.org)
  • When seen as a streak of individual glands along the interface between the skin of the lip and the vermilion border, the terms Fox-Fordyce disease and Fordyce's condition have been used. (wikipedia.org)
  • In some persons with Fordyce spots, the glands express a thick, chalky discharge when squeezed. (wikipedia.org)
  • hormonal
  • Cause - The exact etiology of sebaceous gland tumors is largely unknown but hormonal dysfunction could be a possible reason. (wearethecure.org)
  • Hyperplasia may be due to any number of causes, including increased demand (for example, proliferation of basal layer of epidermis to compensate skin loss), chronic inflammatory response, hormonal dysfunctions, or compensation for damage or disease elsewhere. (wikipedia.org)
  • In order to exclude these other diseases, hormonal studies are done. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms
  • Symptoms of swollen thyroid gland? (healthtap.com)
  • Lyme disease, or borreliosis, is caused by Borrelia burgdorferi and spread by Ixodes pacificus on the West coast of the United States and by I. scapularis (deer tick) in the rest of the U.S. Signs and symptoms include fever, joint swelling and pain, lameness, and swelling of the lymph nodes. (wikipedia.org)
  • eyelids
  • Sebaceous glands are also found in hairless areas (glabrous skin) of the eyelids, nose, penis, labia minora, the inner mucosal membrane of the cheek, and nipples. (wikipedia.org)
  • infection
  • However, it is emphasised that these factors contribute to disease and should never be treated without addressing both secondary infection and primary causes. (bmj.com)
  • One of the most common fungal diseases in dogs is ringworm, or dermatophytosis, an infection of the skin, hair, or nails. (wikipedia.org)
  • acnes
  • P. acnes can be found in bronchoalveolar lavage of approximately 70% of patients with sarcoidosis and is associated with disease activity, but it can be also found in 23% of controls. (wikipedia.org)
  • decreases
  • After birth, activity of the glands decreases until there is almost no activity during ages 2-6 years, and then increases to a peak of activity during puberty, due to heightened levels of androgens. (wikipedia.org)
  • genitals
  • It is produced from the less potent testosterone by the enzyme 5α-reductase in select tissues, and is the primary androgen in the genitals, prostate gland, seminal vesicles, skin, and hair follicles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Certain infectious diseases are a concern from a public health standpoint because they are zoonoses (transmittable to humans). (wikipedia.org)
  • These examples are not considered infectious diseases because they do not satisfy Koch's postulates - for example Staphylococcus intermedius, a commonly isolated bacteria from skin infections in dogs, would not cause pyoderma when introduced to a healthy dog. (wikipedia.org)
  • humans
  • Some of these diseases are unique to dogs or closely related species, while others are found in other animals, including humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rabies (hydrophobia) is a fatal viral disease that can affect any mammal, although the close relationship of dogs with humans makes canine rabies a zoonotic concern. (wikipedia.org)

  • When they appear on the penis, they are also called penile sebaceous glands. (wikipedia.org)
  • DHT is biologically important for sexual differentiation of the male genitalia during embryogenesis, maturation of the penis and scrotum at puberty, growth of facial, body, and pubic hair, and development and maintenance of the prostate gland and seminal vesicles. (wikipedia.org)
