    ABSTRACT: The various processes by which preservatives may be introduced into wood are discussed. Important variables affecting rate and depth of preservative penetration are considered. As well as process variables such as applied pressure and treatment time, it is shown how mass flow processes are affected by carrier fluid viscosity and surface properties. Because of anatomical variation, wood permeability varies greatly both within and between species. Hence it is necessary to select species carefully when treatment is required. The mechanism of diffusion treatment is discussed and it is shown that this process can provide an effective treatment method for otherwise refractory species.

    ABSTRACT: The incidence of follicle mites (Demodex) has been studied in 206 non-selected subjects by means of adhesive tape impressions on skin during daytime of nose and lids and moist storage of the tape. The incidence was seen to rise with increasing age: 4% in young subjects, 30% in the age group of 20 to 80, and 47% in older. The mite was more often present on the skin of the nose (17%) than on that of the upper lid (8%), while the incidence on the lower lid was between these 2 extremes (13%). A total of 126 Demodex mites were detected (123 Demodex folliculorum and 3 Demodex brevis), all full-grown. Of these, 41% were ghosts. The migration was evenly distributed in all directions within the areas examined. About 0.2% of the mites can be roughly estimated to have migrated at a certain point of time from the follicles of the nose to its skin.

    ABSTRACT: A 49-year-old man presented with an acute onset of folliculitis on his right cheek. The folliculitis was unresponsive to antibiotics. A potassium hydroxide preparation of a scraping from the affected area revealed the presence of numerous Demodex mites. The patient was treated with topical crotamiton (Eurax) cream resulting in rapid resolution of the folliculitis. We believe that this case represents a localized pustular folliculitis resulting from a heavy infestation with Demodex folliculorum. In spite of more than 50 years of investigation, the role of D. folliculorum in human cutaneous disease remains controversial.
