Rosacea: clinical presentation and pathophysiology
Department of Dermatology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA.Journal of drugs in dermatology: JDD (Impact Factor: 1.45). 02/2006; 5(1):8-12.
Acne rosacea is one of the most common diagnoses seen in the clinical dermatologic practice. The classic presentation of rosacea, acneiform papules, and pustules on a background of telangiectasia, is often easily identified by primary care physicians, patients, or their similarly afflicted friends or family members. However, rosacea actually represents a spectrum of disease from chronic skin hypersensitivity and flushing to rhinophyma. Although the pathogenesis of rosacea remains unknown, it is important to understand its various presentations and possible etiologies prior to developing individualized treatment protocols.

ABSTRACT: This paper critically reviews the current literature on extragastric diseases associated with Helicobacter pylori infection, with an emphasis on methodologic issues that complicate interpretation of study findings. This review reveals common study limitations and overall uncertainty that H. pylori infection plays a role in extragastric diseases, although such a role has not been clearly ruled out for specific diseases of relevance. Evidence suggests that anti-H. pylori therapy may lead to improvement of a few extragastric diseases, in particular, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, iron deficiency anemia, and chronic idiopathic urticaria, but the data from randomized controlled trials are insufficient to confirm this beneficial effect; if the benefit of anti-H. pylori therapy for specific diseases is real, it is not clear if it results from removing H. pylori-specific injurious effects, eliminating some other infectious pathogen, or reducing the total infectious burden.Current Gastroenterology Reports 01/2007; 8(6):458-64.
