BACKGROUND: Palmo-axillo-plantar hyperhidrosis (HH) exists in approximately 70% to 100% of patients complaining of HH. Many studies have documented variable effects of thoracoscopic sympathicotomy (TS) on plantar sweating. The present trial evaluated sequential extended thoracoscopic sympathicotomy for the treatment of palmo-axillo-plantar HH regarding its feasibility and outcome on each domain of HH, particularly the plantar domain METHODS: Forty-two patients with severe palmo-axillo-plantar HH underwent sequential extended (T3 to T12) thoracoscopic sympathicotomy...

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating beyond what is expected for thermoregulatory needs. Nearly 3 % of the population has hyperhidrosis. It may be primary or secondary to medications or general medical conditions, including diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, Parkinson disease, etc. History taking and clinical examination are essential to differentiate primary from secondary origins. Blood tests and a consultation with a specialist (endocrinologist, neurologist) is sometimes necessary to establish the diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Lymphocytic colitis is a cause of chronic diarrhea. It is a subtype of microscopic colitis characterized by chronic, watery, non-bloody diarrhea and normal endoscopic and radiologic findings. The etiology of this disorder is unknown.Therapy is based mainly on case series and uncontrolled trials, or by extrapolation of data for treating collagenous colitis, a related disorder. This review is an update of a previously published Cochrane review. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of treatments for clinically active lymphocytic colitis...

Hyperhidrosis affects 4.8% of the U.S. population and has been underestimated by physicians for long time despite considerable interference with quality of life. Many patients suffer from primary (idiopathic) hyperhidrosis which results from over-activity of sympathetic nerves and is restricted to specific body areas, mostly the axillae, palms, soles, or head. Secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by an underlying disease or the intake of medications and often involves large parts of the body. Numerous effective therapies with topical or systemic drugs and surgical options are available...

INTRODUCTION: Facial hyperhidrosis (FH) may lead patients to a significantly impaired quality of life (QOL). Video-assisted thoracoscopic sympathectomy (VATS) is reserved for more severe cases refractory to common first-line agents. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of VATS for FH and to compare the results between patients with facial hyperhidrosis as main complaint (FHMC) and patients with facial hyperhidrosis as non-main complaint (FHNMC). METHODS: This was a retrospective study based on medical charts analysis from March 2000 to January 2014: 40 patients with FHMC and 136 patients with FHNMC...

Axillary hyperhidrosis combined with osmidrosis is a common problem, especially in Asian communities, that patients find annoying. Even though several surgical techniques have been reported to treat hyperhidrosis/osmidrosis permanently, patients would prefer a non-surgical approach. A microwave-based device was invented during this decade, and it has proven to be a safe and efficient way to treat axillary hyperhidrosis/osmidrosis without major complications. Mild complications reported are vacuum-associated marks, oedema, tenderness, and temporary altered skin sensation...

Limited efficacy, costs, side-effects and complications are issues of concern for most current therapeutic modalities for focal hyperhidrosis. This study evaluated the efficacy of topical oxybutynin 10% gel in treating 61 patients with primary focal hyperhidrosis. The gel was applied to the right or left axilla, and palm or sole and a placebo compound to the contralateral side for 30 days. A blinded visual grading of the change in starch-iodine tests was performed by 2 non-involved physicians. The Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS) and Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) questionnaires were administered before and after treatment...

Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare, clinically variable congenital disorder involving capillary malformations, soft tissue or bone hypertrophy, and venous malformations or varicose veins. We report a 28-year-old man who presented with a hypertrophic right arm as well as markedly increased ipsilateral axillary hyperhidrosis and erythematous patches on the back, chest, and arm. This case of KTS is unusual because our patient presented with a markedly increased unilateral axillary hyperhidrosis ipsilateral to the hypertrophic limb...

Shapiro Syndrome is a rare entity defined by the triad of recurrent spontaneous hypothermia, hyperhidrosis, and agenesis of the corpus callosum. Fewer than 100 cases have been reported so far and there are only few cases without a complete agenesis of corpus callosum ("Shapiro Syndrome Variant"). In this article, we report the clinical, electroencephalographic, and neuroimaging data of a patient with early-onset Shapiro Syndrome Variant. The case study describes a 4-year-old patient with episodes characterized by generalized hyperhidrosis, hypotonia, impaired consciousness, and hypothermia with onset before the first year of age...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopic sympathicotomy has been determined to be the best way to treat palmar hyperhidrosis. However, satisfaction with the surgical outcomes decreases with the onset of compensatory hyperhidrosis (CH) over time. The ideal level of sympathicotomy is controversial. Therefore, we compared the long-term results of R3 and R4 sympathicotomy. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 186 patients who underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic sympathicotomy between September 2001 and September 2015...

BACKGROUND: Based on the traditional application of traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs), Ephedra Herba (EH) is used to cure cold fever by inducing sweating, whereas Ephedra Radix (ER) is used to treat hyperhidrosis. Although they come from the same plant, Ephedra sinica Stapf, but have play opposing roles in clinical applications. EH is known to contain ephedrine alkaloids, which is the driver of the physiological changes in sweating, heart rate and blood pressure. However, the active pharmacological ingredients (APIs) of ER and the mechanisms by which it restricts sweating remain unknown...

Hyperhidrosis is the excessive production of sweating, which can be primary and focal or secondary to various pathologies. The exact cause of primary focal hyperhidrosis is still unknown, although a genetic basis is recognized, and its prevalence varies from 1% to 2.8%. The most affected sites are the armpits, palms, soles and face. It causes much discomfort, affects the quality of life, and is estimated to be undervalued by health professionals. Many treatment options are proposed, both clinical and surgical...
