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...

Lipoid proteinosis (LP) is an uncommon, autosomal, recessively inherited disorder. It is typically characterized by hoarseness from early infancy, together with various cutaneous manifestations such as waxy papules, acneiform scarring, and eyelid beading. A 42-year-old woman was admitted to our dermatology outpatient clinic complaining of rigidity of the oral mucosa and limitation in tongue movement. She also had a burning sensation and decreased taste perception in the mouth while eating, as well as hoarseness of voice...

Pityriasis rubra pilaris is a chronic inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology and great clinical variability. It has been divided into six categories. Types III, IV, and V occur in childhood and are distinguished by their clinical presentation, age of onset, and course. We report a 19-year-old male patient with a 2-week history of pruritic, scaling dermatosis of the hands, feet, elbows, and knees. He had no family history of skin disease. On physical examination, we observed circumscribed, reddish-orange, scaling plaques affecting the elbows and knees and a waxy palmoplantar keratoderma...

We present a patient with HPV 70/85-positive widespread cutaneous warts characterized by clinical and histological features atypical for classic generalized verrucosis or epidermodysplasia verruciformis. The cutaneous HPV infection is characterized by verrucous papules or plaques variable in size, number, and distribution depending on the genotype of HPV involved and the immune status of the patient. Human papillomaviruses comprise five genera (alpha, beta, gamma, mu, and nu papillomavirus) with different life-cycle characteristics, epithelial tropisms, and disease associations...

INTRODUCTION: Occurence of vitiligo lesions is caused by the destruction of melanocytes in a ected skin and therefore by the re- duction of pigment melanin content. Questions remain about the presence of residual melanocytes in the depigmented skin and optimal methods of their identi cation. METHODS: Skin biopsy samples from 16 patients with non-segmental vitiligo and from 10 healthy volunteers were investigated for Melan-A (A103 clone)+ melanocytes expression by immunohistochemical analysis and for melanin by histochemical studies with section staining by Fontana-Masson method...

INTRODUCTION: Angioedema (AE) is a localized swelling of the subcutaneous tissue and mucosa. We aimed to identify how often AE is associated with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI-AE) therapy and whether the severity of AE episodes in these patients differs from the severity in idiopathic AE (IAE). METHODS: We included patients with AE that were referred to a tertiary allergy clinic from 2005 to 2014. We obtained data on AE location, severity, number, and treatment of episodes from patient medical files...

With the increasing popularity of tattoo body decorations, reports of medical complications with tattoos have increased in parallel. Although tattoo reactions can resolve spontaneously, they often last for months or even years, despite the various treatment methods. In our case, we present the successful removal of hyperkeratotic-lichenoid reaction to red ink using a simple and cheap skin grafting knife. The entire tattoo was preserved with a good aesthetic result with minimal scarring.

Parry-Romberg syndrome is an acquired slowly progressive disease characterized by an atrophy mostly involving half of the face. The pathogenesis of this disfiguring condition is still controversial. The relationship between Parry-Romberg syndrome and Lyme disease needs to be considered in depth. A 16-year-old woman from Albania presented with linear depressions of the right side of the face, clinically compatible with Parry-Romberg syndrome. She had a positive history of Lyme disease. Borrelia infection was confirmed by the positivity of PCR and the presence of IgM antibodies...
