In 2000, Galaria et al. proposed the designation neutrophilic dermatosis of the dorsal hands (NDDH). The authors describe a case of NDDH with predominant involvement of the palmar aspect of the hands in a patient suffering from lung cancer, a possible paraneoplastic manifestation. Therefore, the term NDDH is not accurate because palmar manifestations of this dermatosis are also possible.

Erythema exsudativum multiforme is an immunologically mediated skin condition caused by viruses, bacteria, food, and drugs. There are different forms, and depending on the severity of the disease there is a major and minor form. Whereas the minor form passes without consequences, the major form and Stevens-Johnson syndrome affect the mucosa and may result in death. The disease affects all age groups but is more often observed in young individuals. Typical signs of the disease are skin lesions termed herpes iris...

Methotrexate-induced accelerated nodulosis (MIAN) is not an uncommon adverse effect associated with the use of the methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis. Limited case reports describe panniculitis as a pathological finding in this setting. A 31-year-old female with seropositive rheumatoid arthritis on methotrexate therapy presented with a 2-week history of sudden onset of painful infiltrated subcutaneous nodules on both forearms. Based on clinical and histological findings, a diagnosis of methotrexate-induced panniculitis was made...

Erythema dyschromicum perstans is a rare, chronic, pigmentary disorder with unknown etiology. It clinically presents with oval to round, gray, blue, or brown macules of various sizes. The etiology remains unknown; however, cobalt allergy, radio contrast media, intestinal parasites, human immunodeficiency virus, and hypothyroidism have been proposed as causative factors. In addition, vitiligo is characterized by depigmented macules and patches that are widely andsymmetrically distributed. It has been suggested that autoimmune mechanisms play an important role in the etiopathogenesis of vitiligo...

Beta-hemolytic streptococci (BHS) are the most common causative agents of perianal streptococcal dermatitis (PSD). This study evaluates the distribution of BHS isolates in perianal bacterial cultures. We retrospectively reviewed microbiological results for perianal BHS that were isolated in our laboratory between 2006 and 2015. We identified a total of 105 BHS isolates from rectal swabs and swabs of clinically intact perianal skin. The majority of BHS were of group A (GABHS) (73/105; 69.5%), followed by group B BHS (GBBHS) (27/105; 25...

INTRODUCTION: The present study describes the development and evaluation of the first multiplex type-specific quantitative real-time PCR (RT-PCR), enabling simple, rapid, sensitive, and specific concurrent detection and differentiation of human papillomavirus (HPV) types HPV2, 27, and 57 in a single PCR reaction. RESULTS: The HPV2/27/57 multiplex RT-PCR with a dynamic range of seven orders of magnitude (discriminating 10 to 108 viral genome equivalents/reaction) has an analytical sensitivity of at least 10 viral copies of each targeted HPV type/reaction, and no cross-reactivities were observed among the included targets...

A small proportion of HIV-infected patients rapidly progress to AIDS; indeed, some individuals have been known to progress to AIDS within a year after primary infection. Pneumonia caused by Pneumocystis jirovecii (PCP) is the most frequent AIDS-defining illness. However, PCP can also rarely occur during primary HIV infection as a result of the severe immunosuppression that may accompany the early stage of HIV infection. Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) comprises two distinct syndromes: paradoxical IRIS and unmasking IRIS...

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by painful cutaneous ulcers. The etiology remains unknown; however, pyoderma gangrenousm can be triggered by surgery. Here we report the case of a 34-year-old Caucasian female that developed pyoderma gangrenosum following deep inferior epigastric perforator flap breast reconstruction. The patient was successfully treated with systemic immunosuppressive therapy and primary closure.

INTRODUCTION: Of the 350 million individuals chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV) worldwide, approximately 15 to 20 million have been exposed to hepatitis D virus (HDV). This study determined for the first time the HDV prevalence in Slovenian patients with chronic HBV infection. In addition, a literature search was performed to identify all HDV prevalence studies from European countries. METHODS: A total of 1,305 HBsAg-positive serum samples, obtained from the same number of patients, were randomly selected from 2,337 patients referred to the Slovenian national reference laboratory for viral hepatitis between 1998 and 2015...

Introduction: It is well known that adequate hygiene is important for health. Even though this topic has drawn the attention of the media, little or no scientific investigation has been done. Methods: We performed a comparative questionnaire-based cross-sectional study in three groups: patients attending a dermatology outpatient clinic, patients attending an internal medicine consultation, and community members. Results: We analyzed a total of 446 questionnaires (249 from dermatology patients, 98 from internal medicine patients, and 99 from the community group)...

INTRODUCTION: Male pattern hair loss is widespread around the world. Its prevalence indicates the importance of finding the best treatment modalities. This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of minoxidil 5% topical foam in male pattern hair loss treatment and patient satisfaction. METHODS: This study was a before-and-after trial on 17 male patients with male pattern hair loss. Subjects were instructed to apply one capful (1 ml) of minoxidil 5% topical foam on the scalp daily for 6 months...

Acta Dermatovenerologica Alpina, Pannonica et Adriatica (Acta Dermatovenerol APA) is the leading journal in dermatology and sexually transmitted infections in the region. Several important steps were taken during the last 25 years to improve the journal's quality, global visibility, and international impact. After a 1-year trial period, Thomson Reuters recently informed the editorial office that they had accepted Acta Dermatovenerol APA for coverage in Thomson Reuters' new index in the Web of Science Core Collection called the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)...

Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is sexually transmitted infection caused by serovars of Chlamydia trachomatis, mostly seen among HIV-positive men who have sex with men. The first three reports of possible LGV in Slovenia were from April to June 2015, followed by a confirmed case of LGV in August 2015. We present the case of an HIV-positive MSM that presented with an anorectal abscess, discharge, lymphadenopathy, and unusual perianal plaque. Gonococcal proctitis was assumed and he received empirical antibiotic treatment, after which only intermittent improvement occurred...

INTRODUCTION: Bacterial vaginosis is of clinical interest because of its possible causal relationship with complications during pregnancy, postpartum, and complications after surgery. METHODS: Gram stain for clue cells and Gardnerella vaginalis culture methods were evaluated retrospectively in a microbiological medical laboratory for the first half of 2015. We were interested in the proportion of G. vaginalis bacteria isolated from genital samples, correlation with Gram-staining presence of clue cells, referral clinical diagnosis, and pregnancy...

INTRODUCTION: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) take first or second place as the cause of drug-induced hypersensitivity reactions. The oral provocation test (OPT) is a gold standard for the diagnosis of NSAID hypersensitivity. We investigated which analgesics patients took after a negative OPT and determined the proportion of patients that experienced a hypersensitivity reaction despite a negative OPT. METHODS: We selected 115 patients (67.8% female, age 54...
