Systemic 5-fluorouracil producing an inflammatory response in porokeratosis.
ABSTRACT Topical 5-fluorouracil has been used as an effective treatment for porokeratosis. Upon its treatment, an inflammatory effect occurs with the topical 5-fluorouracil. We report a case of a patient with disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis displaying a comparable inflammatory process following therapy with systemic 5-fluorouracil used to manage a metastatic breast cancer.

ABSTRACT: It is shown that the 10° sections of the ecliptic, called decans by the Greeks, were originally constellations rising heliacally 10 days apart, and invisible for 70 days. Such stars belong to a zone south of the ecliptic and include Sirius and Orion. The use of the decans for time measurement at night leads to a twelve-division of the period of complete darkness. From this is eventually derived the twenty-four division of day and night.
