Striae periodicity refers to the number of cross-striations between successive lines of Retzius in tooth enamel. A regular time dependency of striae periodicity, known as the circaseptan interval, has been proposed. Previous studies on striae periodicity have been carried out on both modern and early humans given its potential applications in forensic age estimations and anthropology. Nevertheless, research comparing striae periodicities across gender groups and populations in different geographical locations, particularly in Asia, is lacking...

BACKGROUND: Patients who suffer from scars or wrinkles have several therapeutic options to improve the appearance of their skin. The available treatment modalities that provide desirable results are often overtly invasive and entail a risk of undesirable adverse effects. Microneedling has recently emerged as a non-ablative alternative for treating patients who are concerned with the aesthetic changes that result from injury, disease or ageing. OBJECTIVE: This review aims to evaluate the current evidence in the literature on microneedling...

Background Needleless transcutaneous pneumatic injections (TPI) are a minimally invasive way to deliver solution into the skin for therapeutic purposes. The suggested action mechanisms of TPI therapy include mechanical stimulation, immediate tissue shrinkage, and late wound healing. Methods Thirteen Korean patients were treated with TPI for atrophic skin disorders, including acne scars, striae albae, post-furuncle or carbuncle scars, and horizontal wrinkles with lipoatrophy. At each TPI treatment session, a single pass was made along on the atrophic skin lesions without overlapping...

INTRODUCTION: Pregnancy produces many cutaneous changes, some of which are specifically related to pregnancy (dermatoses of pregnancy), some are modifiable by pregnancy and others that are common are named physiologic. These physiologic skin changes, usually do not impair the health of the mother or the fetus but some of them can be cosmetically significant and of importance to the dermatologist. AIM: The present study was undertaken to find out the prevalence of the physiological and pathological skin changes in pregnancy, and to correlate the prevalence of the major cutaneous changes and diseases in relation to different trimesters of pregnancy and with gravidity...

An 11-year-old boy living in Otsu City, Shiga Prefecture, Kansai Region, Western Honshu, Japan had zoonotic onchocercosis. The patient developed a painful swelling on the little finger of his left hand. The worm detected in the excised mass had external transverse ridges but did not have inner striae in the cuticle. On the basis of the parasite's histopathological characteristics, the causative agent was identified as a female Onchocerca dewittei japonica (Spirurida: Onchocercidae). The species of the filarial parasite was confirmed by sequencing the cox1 gene of the parasite...

Oral lichen planus is a relatively common T-cell mediated inflammatory disease with potential malignant transformation. It may present itself with pain and oral lesions such as ulcers and Wickham’s striae. Treatment includes topical corticosteroids, preferably Clobetasol, immunosuppressive drugs and retinoids. Hyaluronic acid and aloe vera have been proven to be successful. If topical treatment fails, systemic therapy with corticosteroids may be needed. Because of the potential malignant transformation periodic follow-up is mandatory...

The chronology of dental development and life history of primitive catarrhines provides a crucial comparative framework for understanding the evolution of hominoids and Old World monkeys. Among the extinct groups of catarrhines are the pliopithecoids, with no known descendants. Anapithecus hernyaki is a medium-size stem catarrhine known from Austria, Hungary and Germany around 10 Ma, and represents a terminal lineage of a clade predating the divergence of hominoids and cercopithecoids, probably more than 30 Ma...

We report a 16-year-old adolescent male with multiple violaceous, atrophic, vertical linear striae isolated to the axillae and proximal arms of approximately one-year duration. In the past two years, he indulged in heavy weight-lifting. He experienced a growth spurt over the past few years. The patient was otherwise in good health and was not on any medications. Physiological striae atrophicae of adolescence where the striae were restricted to the axillae and proximal arms have very rarely been reported.

Corticosteroids have been a mainstay of therapy for the treatment of many inflammatory diseases for well over 50 years. Cutaneous side effects of local corticosteroid therapy include striae, thinning of the skin, hypopigmentation, and atrophy, which are well known complications of this treatment modality.Herein, we present an unusual cutaneous adverse side effect rarely seen in intra-articular corticosteroid injections.

Early diagnosis of congenital glaucoma allows surgery to be performed at the stage of reversible glaucomatous alterations of the optic disc and retina. In primary congenital glaucoma, the main reason for visual acuity reduction following surgical stabilization of the intraocular pressure are corneal changes. These include an increased corneal diameter, Haab's striae, areas of thickening and a greater posterior elevation. The resultant irregular astigmatism leads to amblyopia and a marked decrease in visual acuity...

The influence of early life stress on later life experiences has become a major focus of research in medicine and more recently in bioarchaeology. Dental enamel, which preserves a record of childhood stress events, represents an important resource for this investigation when paired with the information from adult skeletal remains, such as age at death. The purpose of this research was to use a life history approach to the exploration of sex differences in the relationship between childhood stress and adult longevity by examining accentuated striae of Retzius (AS)...
