    ABSTRACT: We report a case of Alternaria alternata cutaneous and pulmonary infection in a 62-year-old man after heart transplantation treated by azole antifungals. Alternaria spp. belong to a group of opportunistic dematiaceous fungi with worldwide distribution. The cutaneous form of the infection in human is very rare and occurs predominantly among immunosuppressed patients. Therefore, diagnosis is often delayed or not reached at all. Appropriate treatment is not standardized and remains a matter of discussion. According to current studies, the best results are obtained with systemic azole antifungal therapy combined with surgical intervention.

    ABSTRACT: The basic principle of the management of lymphedema is so called complex decongestive physical therapy. This therapy is divided into two phases: (i) edema reduction phase - an initial intensive treatment phase aiming for limb volume reduction; and (ii) maintenance phase - following long-term phase to sustain a manageable limb volume. The first phase consists of a number of physical therapeutic approaches which are: manual lymph drainage, pneumatic pump drainage, low-stretch bandaging, exercises, and skin care. Long-term maintenance phase consists of self-lymph drainage, low-stretch bandaging, or compressive garments, and sometimes when indicated pneumatic pump drainage, exercises, and skin care.

    ABSTRACT: Atopic dermatitis (AD) still remains one of the most common childhood inflammatory skin diseases. As a chronic disease, it can have a physical and psychological effect on social functioning of the affected child as well as their family. The objective of this study was to evaluate the quality of life of children with AD of different age groups and their families. A total of 203 children with a diagnosis of AD from newborn to 18 years of age and 202 of their parents took part in our study (as one parent did not return the questionnaire). All participants, according to their age, completed the following questionnaires: Infants' Dermatitis Quality of Life Index (IDQOL); Children's Dermatology Life Quality Index (CDLQI) - text and cartoon version; and Dermatitis Family Impact questionnaire (DFI). The mean total IDQOL score in our study was 8.18 (SD = 5.84, n = 120). The mean total CDLQI scores in the groups of children from 7 to 13 and from 14 to 18 years were 8.58 (SD = 4.98, n = 48) and 9.89 (SD = 5.26, n = 35). There was also a proven influence of the child's AD on the quality of life of his parents with the mean score: 7.98 (SD = 6.41, n = 202). The study demonstrated and confirmed that AD significantly impairs the children's quality of life in all age groups and also quality of life of their families. Such data give us patient-oriented information that is of great importance for understanding the situation of individuals with AD and its influence on members of their family.

    ABSTRACT: Lymphogranuloma venereum is a sexually transmitted disease caused by serovars L1-3 of Chlamydia trachomatis. This infection was originally endemic in tropics and transmitted predominantly by heterosexual contact but since the beginning of the century it spreads in industrialized countries mainly among men having sex with men causing them severe proctitis. In the Czech Republic the first case was diagnosed in 2011. Lymphogranuloma venereum can resemble other forms of anorectal disorders inclusive inflammatory bowel diseases and thus it must be included into differential diagnostic considerations. Definitive diagnosis is based on detection of specific serovars of Chlamydia trachomatis by polymerase chain reaction. In patients with lymphogranuloma venereum it is also necessary to exclude other sexually transmitted diseases, particularly syphilis, HIV and also hepatitis C. The therapy of choice is doxycycline administered for three weeks. Key words: Chlamydia trachomatis, serovar L, biovar LGV, proctitis, lymphogranuloma venereum, HIV.

    ABSTRACT: The study describes the case of a patient with a clinical and histopathological diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris accompanied by severe side-effects of combined immunosuppressive therapy, who achieved a remission of the disease with adalimumab. Pemphigus vulgaris is a chronic blistering disease of the skin and mucous membranes. Before corticosteroids were introduced, mortality was high. Corticosteroids are currently used as first-line therapy. To reduce the dose of corticosteroids, therapeutic combinations with corticosteroid-sparing immunosuppressive agents are used. The therapy brings a number of complications due to its side effects. To achieve a remission of the disease by treating our patient with combined immunosuppressives, we administered adalimumab and achieved a very good clinical response.
