Background: Cold-induced peripheral neuropathy has been described in individuals exposed to severe cold resulting in pain, hypersensitivity to cold, hyperhidrosis, numbness, and skin changes. Nerve conduction studies and thermal detection thresholds are abnormal in symptomatic patients, and intraepidermal nerve fiber density (IENFD) in skin biopsies is reduced. Case presentation: A 41-year-old male was included as a healthy subject in a study of the spontaneous variability of quantitative sensory testing (QST), nerve conduction studies (NCS), and IENFD...

Fucosidosis is a rare lysosomal storage disease which has been classified into two subtypes, depending on the severity of clinical signs and symptoms. Fucosidosis patients' skin abnormalities include angiokeratoma corporis diffusum, widespread telangiectasia, thick skin, hyperhidrosis and hypohidrosis, acrocyanosis and distal transverse nail bands. It has been described that >50% of fucosidosis patients have angiokeratoma. At molecular level, fucosidosis is caused by lysosomal alpha-L-fucosidase (FUCA1) gene mutations...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar sympthectomy (LS) was traditionally performed for intermittent claudication but is now eclipsed by revascularisation for that indication. However, it retains a role in the management of critical limb ischaemia and other conditions causing lower limb pain with or without ischaemia. We report the role of LS in modern surgical practice when revascularisation and pain management options have been exhausted. METHODS: A medical chart review was performed on all patients who underwent LS in our unit from 2005 to 2016 (inclusive)...

Primary hyperhidrosis has a prevalence of 3-5% in the United States. It is a psychosocially disabling condition leading to low self-esteem, chronic stress and depressive symptoms. Several medical and surgical treatments exist, including botulinum toxin A, which internationally, has been shown effectively and safely to treat this condition achieving high patient satisfaction. In Australia, botulinum toxin A has been available under the Medicare benefits scheme for axillary hyperhidrosis since 2013, but efficacy and treatment satisfaction had not been evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Primary hyperhidrosis has negative impacts on quality of life. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the impacts of primary hyperhidrosis on quality of life are different depending on the localisation of the sweating. METHOD: We compiled background data, Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS), and Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) post hoc results from 2 previous studies. Cases who described only 1 site as their most problematic area of sweating were included (n = 160/188) while individuals with multifocal primary sites of hyperhidrosis were excluded (n = 28/188)...

We present a 57 year-old man presented with generalized hyperhidrosis and widespread, smooth, flesh colored papules on the torso and extremities.Histological examination from multiple biopsies demonstrated morphologic alteration of the eccrine glands with an apocrine phenotype, suggesting eitherapocrine metaplasia or the presence of "apoeccrine glands." The morphologic similarities between eccrine, apocrine, and apoeccrine as they relate to ourpatient's histologic findings are discussed. We consider secondary causes of generalized hyperhidrosis, which may also play a role in this patient's presentation...

Hyperhidrosis affect 3% of the population and, despite benign nature of the disease, the individuals seek medical advice in order to improve their quality of life which can be severely compromised. The interruption of the sympathetic chain (sympathectomy) and of the nerve of Kuntz established its role as the definitive treatment of primary hyperhidrosis. In this manuscript, we present our extended uniportal technique with the aid of the video. Uniportal approach expresses all its benefit when applied for this procedure because there is no specimen to be retrieved and all the surgery is accomplished through a 1-2 cm port access...

Fibrous hamartoma of infancy (FHI) is a rare entity with a benign nature. The typical clinical features are a single, slowly growing, painless mass on the trunk that appears within the first 2 years of life. We report a 13-month-old boy who presented with a plaque on the lower back since 4 months of age. The plaque had gradually become larger and firm, and hyperhidrosis and hypertrichosis were noticed. No visible connection between the spinal cord and the lesion was found in radiologic studies, indicating a disease other than spinal dysraphism...

Recurrent hyperhidrosis after thoracic sympathectomy is an uncomfortable condition, and compensatory hyperhidrosis (CH) is one of the most troublesome side effects. Here, we describe two patients with recurrent palmar hyperhidrosis (PH) and CH over the whole body simultaneously. They were treated with bilateral T4 sympathetic clipping and reconstruction of the sympathetic nerve from a T5 to T8 sympathetic nerve graft, which was transferred to the resected T3 sympathetic bed site. They reported improvements in sweating and were fully satisfied with the results...

BACKGROUND: Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) affects 1-3% of the population. Primary focal hyperhidrosis most commonly affects the axilla, palms, and soles. There are few case reports of hyperhidrosis of the genital region, typically described as inguinal hyperhidrosis or Hexsel's hyperhidrosis. CASE: A17-year-old girl presented with 3 years of copious, clear "vaginal" discharge causing significant emotional distress. After extensive gynecologic and urologic work up was negative, further review of her history was notable for excessive axillary sweating...

A 14-year-old girl and a 30-year-old woman presented with localised hyperhidrosis on the dorsal hand and wrist, respectively, provoked by different stimuli such as physical activity and minor trauma to the skin. The skin was seemingly normal in both patients where an iodine-starch test revealed a well-demarcated area of hyperhidrosis. Following histopathological examination, the diagnosis was unilateral localised hyperhidrosis in both cases; one with normal histology and one with a nevus sudoriferous. Both patients were successfully treated with botulinum toxin type A...

INTRODUCTION: Anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase (anti-GAD65) antibodies are a rare cause of autoimmune encephalitis. This entity is mainly recognized in adults and very few cases were reported in children. We report on a paediatric case of anti-GAD encephalitis with severe presentation and uncontrollable dysautonomia. CASE STUDY: A 9-year-old girl was referred to our department for refractory seizures and behavioral disturbances. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was normal...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: There are no reliably effective, well-tolerated topical agents for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. We sought to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of oxybutynin 3% gel in adolescents and young adults with primary focal hyperhidrosis. METHODS: Patients with severe axillary hyperhidrosis were treated with topical oxybutynin 3% gel for 4 weeks. Response to treatment was assessed by calculating change in Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Score from baseline to weeks 1 and 4...

Hyperhidrosis o`ccurs when the body produces sweat beyond what is essential to maintain thermal homeostasis. The condition tends to occur in areas marked by high-eccrine density such as the axillae, palms, and soles and less commonly in the craniofacial area. The current standard of care is topical aluminum chloride hexahydrate antiperspirant (10-20%), but other treatments such as anticholinergics, clonidine, propranolol, antiadrenergics, injections with attenuated botulinum toxin, microwave technology, and surgery have been therapeutically implicated as well...

INTRODUCTION: Palmar hyperhidrosis is of great concern to patients because of its physical, occupational, and psychological impact on quality of life. Topical clove oil has been used in many conditions due to its major component Eugenol that exerts blocking effect on nerve transmission. AIM OF THE WORK: To assess the efficacy of topical liposome incorporated clove oil in decreasing the rate of sweating among patients with idiopathic palmar hyperhidrosis. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Forty patients with palmar hyperhidrosis were treated with clove oil 45% in liposome and another twenty patients were treated as a control group with 0...

BACKGROUND: Recent advance of genetic testing has contributed to the diagnosis of hereditary pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PPGL). The clinical characteristics of hereditary PPGL are varying among the types of mutational genes. It is still difficult to specify the pathognomonic symptoms in the case of rare genetic mutations. Here, we report the case of synchronous bilateral pheochromocytomas and paraganglioma with novel MYC associated factor X (MAX) gene mutation. CASE PRESENTATION: A 24-year-old female had hyperhidrosis and hypertension...

RATIONALE: Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematologic malignancy characterized by proliferation of clonal plasma cells in the bone marrow. The median survival has increased to 6 years in recent years. But MM remains incurable. Some studies about the effects of Chinese herb medicine on MM have been carried out. Long survival in MM patients through Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapies has been reported rarely before. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of a female patient who was diagnosed with MM in 2000 at the age of 49...
