Becker's nevus is a focal epidermal hypermelanotic disorder. It morphologically presents as unilateral, hyperpigmented, hypertrichotic patch on upper trunk, proximal upper extremities and arms. However, Becker's nevus presenting as bilateral, symmetrical patches is rare. Herein, we report a rare case of giant Becker's nevus with bilateral symmetrical presentation in an adult male. Source

Coexistence of two different histopathological types of basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) in the same anatomical site is rare and interesting. Herein, we report a case of coexistence of nodular and adenoid BCC in a 78-year-old peasant who presented with a plaque and a globular swelling on left paranasal region of few years duration. Histopathology of skin biopsy with immunohistochemistry study using antibodies to S100, epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) and cytokeratin 7 (CK 7) from the margin of the ulcer and globular swelling confirmed the diagnosis that revealed features of nodular and adenoid basal cell carcinoma, respectively. Investigative work up did not reveal evidence of metastasis. Source

Tick bites are uncommon and are vectors of a number of skin diseases; some are innocuous and others deleterious. Herein, we report a case of tick bite in a 50-year-old man who presented with an insect in the abdominal wall, unassociated with systemic involvement. Examination revealed the presence of a tick in the abdominal wall (near the right hypochondrium) with head embedded in it. There is an erythematous, edematous swelling surrounding the bite with elevated skin fold covering the head of the tick. Biopsy from the swelling after the removal of tick revealed foci of fibrinoid material with perivascular lymphocytes, neutrophils, and histiocytes in the dermis. © 2016 Annals of Tropical Medicine and Public Health | Published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow.

This is a longitudinal study of 109 pregnant women over a period of 2 years who attended the antenatal clinics between 30-40 weeks of gestation with a clinical or sonological diagnosis of SGA fetuses without any clinical causes excluding preeclampsia. In the present study, fetal umbilical artery Systolic/ Diastolic ratio(S/D), Pulsatility index (PI), resistance index (RI) were studied. Fetuses with elevated S/D ratios were associated with oligohydramnios (P<0.05). Umbilical artery S/D ratio had a sensitivity of 74% and a specificity of 78%in prediction of abnormal NSTs. Only 13% of fetuses with abnormal S/D ratios had birth weight less than 10th percentile. It was significantly associated with caesarean sections (P<0.05). Absent end diastolic flows were associated with poor prognosis and 100%mortality in this study. The resistive index is a sensitive predictor of antenatal factors such as oligohydramnios and non-reassuring fetal cardiac tracings. Fetuses with abnormal RI had abnormal CTG in 52% cases, with a sensitivity of 52% and specificity of 59%. RI is not a good predictor for neonatal outcome measures. Elevated PI with associated sensitivity for prediction of oligohydramnios was 65% and specificity was 76%.It was significantly associated with NICU stay >48 hours (p<0.05).Abnormal PI was associated with non-reassuring fetal heart tracings (p<0.05). © 2014 Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development.

Aloe vera gel of 50% and 96.4% were tested for its wound healing activity by topical application in experimental rats. The effect of Aloe vera gel on wound healing was evaluated by wound excision model and histopathology was used to study the effect on wound healing. The effect produced by Aloe vera gel with reference to wound contraction, wound closure, decrease in surface area of wound, tissue regeneration at the wound site and histopathological characteristics were significant in treated rats. The effect of Aloe vera gel on biochemical studies revealed significant increase in collagen and decreased hexosamine content and malondialdehyde levels when compared with control. The present study thus provided scientific rationale for the traditional use of Aloe vera gel for management of wounds. Source
