Mohammad Abid Keen, Iffat Hassan
BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a T-cell-mediated autoimmune chronic skin disorder in which an environmental factor, perhaps a viral antigen, induces T cells to produce cytokines. These cytokines stimulate keratinocyte proliferation and production of antigenic adhesion molecules in the dermal blood vessels. Several mediators and hormones have been implicated in keratinocyte hyperproliferation and among these hormones, prolactin (PRL) has been found to have an effect on epithelial cells, lymphocytes and keratinocytes, thus an effect on the etiopathogenesis of psoriasis...

In 1879, during his specialization in dermatology, Albert Ludwig Sigesmund Neisser (1855-1916) discovered the bacterial cause of gonorrhoea. The gonococcus - Neisseria gonorrhoea - would, however, not bear his name until 1933. Neisser's early research focused primarily on venereal diseases, syphilis in particular, and on leprosy. Later, as a hygienist, he became a passionate advocate of public clinics for venereal diseases, regulated prostitution, and health education. In 1916, Neisser died of sepsis after lithotripsy for nephrolithiasis...

BACKGROUND: According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 80% of the world's population uses medicinal plants in the treatment of diseases and, in African countries, this rate is much higher. In recent years, however, medicinal plants have represented a primary health source for the pharmaceutical industry. No less than 400 compounds derived from plants are currently used in the preparation of drugs, such as vincristine and vinblastine used in the treatment of cancer. Nigerians still depend largely on crude herbal remedies or traditional medicine...

The histopathological features of skin tissue sections in patients clinically diagnosed as leprosy were correlated with the histopathological features of nerve specimens obtained from the same patients. Fifty untreated leprosy patients attending the Outpatient Department of the Department of Dermatology and Sexually Transmitted Diseases of Smt. Sucheta Kriplani and Kalawati Saran Children's Hospitals, New Delhi, India were included in the study. On correlating the histological features of skin and nerve tissue sections, concordant findings were found in 24 out of the 50 patients (48%) but discordance between the histopathological features of skin and nerve tissue sections were found in 26 out of 50 cases (52%)...

Minocycline belongs to the second generation class of cyclines. It was synthesized in 1967 and marketed in 1972. Minocycline has an antiinfectious activity with a spectrum similar to that of other cyclines, notably against Chlamydias, Treonema and Proprionibacterium acenes. The antiinflammatory activity is associated with this antiinfectious action is greater than that of first generation cyclines with specifically a modulator effect on epidermal cytokines. The pharmokinetics of minocycline is characterized by an excellent absorption, a long half-life and an important lipophilic property inducing good tissue distribution...

Thirty three cases of donovanosis have been observed at the Dermatology Department of Cayenne's Hospital between 1970 and 1982, only in black people. The high frequency of rectal lesions of passive homosexual patients and the vagina contamination in women without sexual intercourse postulate for the intestinal reservoir of the bacteria, and the possibility of auto-inoculation. There is probably a cellular immune deficit. Donovanosis is often associated with other diseases, and in our practice in French Guyana, with leprosy...
