Tufted angioma (TA) is a rare benign vascular neoplasm characterized histopathologically by the proliferation of endothelial cells arranged in lobules in the dermis and subcutaneous fat. To date, about 200 cases have been reported, most of which are of Japanese ethnicity. TA predominantly affects children and young adults, developing in 80% of pati...

Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS) is characterized by an heterogeneous group of severe dermatologic manifestations and systemic involvement, due to several groups of medicaments. A series of 9 consecutive cases, observed from 2008 to 2013 in the Department of Dermatology, University of Pavia, is reported, all satisfying...
Article
Aim of this work was to define the histopathological features of post-surgical panniculitis. Dermal and hypodermal changes will be analyzed in detail, to understand the cascade of events that characterize the tissue response to surgical trauma. Cutaneous re-excision specimens of cases of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma c...
Article
Thermalism and spa treatments are traditionally considered effective in a number of dermatologic inflammatory conditions, yet there is scarce evidence about spring water effectiveness on psoriasis in a daily setting. We enrolled 34 patients with mild-to-moderate psoriasis in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-contralaterally-controlled trial, to e...
Article
Women with HIV infection are at increased risk of anogenital dysplasia and cancer, related to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. These neoplasms are rare in perinatally HIV-infected girls before onset of sexual activity. We report a case of high-grade anal dysplasia in a ten-year-old African girl with untreated perinatal HIV infection.
Article
Glomuvenous malformations (GVM) are hamartomas characterized histologically by glomus cells, which should be distinguished from glomus tumors. Familial GVM are rare, often present as multiple lesions, and exhibit familial aggregation, with autosomal dominant transmission. GVM are caused by mutations of the glomulin (GLMN) gene on chromosome 1p21-p2...
Article
Renal dysfunction is a common complication in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients and can be attributed to direct viral damage, comorbidities or drug toxicity. The aim of this study was to assess cross-sectional correlates of renal damage in a contemporary European cohort of patients. We performed a case-control study from our coho...

Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) is present at various degrees in kidney transplants. I/R plays a major role in early function and long-term survival of renal allograft. The purpose of our study was to determine if immunosuppressants modulate I/R in a model that separates I/R from all immune responses. Sprague-Dawley rats with monolateral renal I/R recei...
Article
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the skin may metastasize in more than 5% of cases. Metastases usually involve the primary regional lymph nodes in 85% of cases. The skin is rarely involved by metastases of SCC of the skin. The presence of multiple cutaneous metastases in a figurate array is a very rare occurrence, mostly reported in SCC occurring i...
Article
Surrogate markers for monitoring immuno-virological discordant responders, in addition to plasma viral load and CD4 cells, are still lacking. We assessed the diagnostic utility of CD38 expression on CD8 T cell assay, alone or in association with lymphocyte proliferation to mycotic antigens, in evaluating antiretroviral response. 28 vertically HIV-i...
Article
Reported herein is an unusual vascular tumor primary arising in the liver and exhibiting unique histopathological features. A 47-year-old woman underwent left hepatectomy because of a large hepatic mass. On histology the tumor had a composite pattern, consisting of angiomatous, retiform and solid areas, formed by oval to cuboidal to spindle cells,...

Wrinkle reduction and the correction of skin defects using injectable esthetic microimplants are widely performed by dermatologists and plastic surgeons. We describe two cases of mucosal and cutaneous granulomatous reaction to injections of Dermalive®, a filler composed by acrylic hydrogel particles and hyaluronic acid. Two women, respectively 40 a...
Article
We report a case of primary sarcoma of the skin with a biphasic histological pattern, being composed of areas of mixed mesenchymal-epithelial cell proliferation and areas of purely sarcomatous growth. The tumor occurred in the posterior cervical region of a 93-year-old man, and its history was marked by sudden, rapid enlargement after many years of...

Background in early breast cancer, variations in local treatment that substantially affect the risk of locoregional recurrence could also affect long-term breast cancer mortality. To examine this relationship, collaborative meta-analyses were undertaken, based on individual patient data, of the relevant randomised trials that began by 1995. Methods...

To determine whether a dose-dense regimen improves outcome in early breast cancer patients, we compared outcomes with the same fluorouracil, epirubicin, and cyclophosphamide (FEC) chemotherapeutic regimen administered every 3 weeks (FEC21) or administered every 2 weeks (FEC14 including support with filgrastim, a granulocyte colony-stimulating facto...
Article
Appropriate supportive care and identification of long-term sequels of therapy are of paramount importance in HIV-infected pediatric patients. As low bone mineral quality (BMQ) in patients can be considered a marker of possible degeneration in osteopenia and osteoporosis in adulthood, we evaluated bone features in a pediatric population. Forty-four...
Article
The expectation of improvement in patient survival with administration of new chemotherapy agents for metastatic breast carcinoma (MBC) is not consistently supported by data from clinical trials, which are often underpowered and have not detected moderate survival advantage. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of new agents on prognosi...

The aim of this study was to describe the patterns of breast cancer relapse and the factors influencing therapeutic choices in an unselected postmenopausal population. Five hundred and thirty-nine patients were enrolled between October 1999 and March 2001. The majority (92.6%) underwent surgery for the primary tumor: there was no difference between...
Article
Chemotherapy with oxaliplatin, fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin (LV) has proven efficacy in patients with advanced colorectal carcinoma (CRC), although the optimal dosage and administration schedule are still unclear.

Article
Malignant pilomatrixomas are rare tumors of hair matrix origin. Most lesions are localised on the scalp, posterior neck or back. Most patients are middle-aged men. Treatment consists in radical surgical excision, because of frequent local recurrence and possible pulmonary metastasis. Malignant pilomatrixomas are locally invasive, highly recurrent a...

Combination chemotherapy yields better response rates which do not always lead to a survival advantage. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the reported differences in the efficacy and toxicity of monotherapy with doxorubicin (DOX) versus combination therapy with cisplatin (CDDP) in endometrial adenocarcinoma lead to significant advant...

In this paper, we study the geography of publications in clinical cancer research from 1995 to 1999. A Medline search was performed to retrieve papers in clinical oncology reporting phase I, II and III studies published between 1995 and 1999. Only studies reporting antiblastic chemotherapy have been considered, either alone or in combination with o...

Penicillin G was first used in 1941. Since then, the trend in bacterial infections has changed. New antibiotics have been developed and bacterial resistance has spread as a consequence. The spread of Gram positive resistant bacteria is related to an inappropriate use of antibiotics. Antibacterial agents are abused or overused in various fields: med...
