BACKGROUND: Palms and soles are the readily visible areas of the body that are affected in various dermatoses. This may have considerable concern to the patient and can cause diagnostic dilemma. Moreover, palmoplantar dermatoses also limit our day to day activities with a significant impact on quality of life. AIM: To study the clinical profile of patients suffering from palmoplantar dermatoses at a tertiary care centre. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective observational study was carried out from June 2014 to May 2015 in the Department of Dermatology, Venerology and Leprosy at a rural tertiary care centre after taking approval from the institutional ethical committee...

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are one of the most common and universal problems of public health. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and STD infections are clearly interrelated, and share risks, incidence and transmission mechanisms. The aim of this document is to inform health professionals about the current situation and management of STDs, which, because of their relevance, need greater care, both in the general population and in the population with HIV. These guidelines for STD treatment, although clinically oriented and focused especially on treatment, contain other aspects related to assessing and evaluating patients, as well as recommendations for diagnosis...

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Historical medical sources can be still queried for forgotten cures and remedies. Traditional Chinese medicine has dealt with lues venerea (syphilis) since the Five Dynasties period (10th century). Chinese indigenous materia medica and remedies recorded, studied or imported by the Europeans can reveal known or quite unknown medicinal plants. The studied Jean Astruc's work is a published ethnopharmacological survey carried out in Beijing in the 1730s and it deserves a modern interpretation...

The prevention and the early diagnosis of melanoma malignum are essential because of the aggressive spreading and poor therapeutic response of the tumor. Since survival mainly depends on the tumor stage, in the first part of the Ph.D. thesis the stage distribution of melanomas was assessed in the melanoma patients treated at the Department of Dermatology, Dermatooncology and Venerology, Semmelweis University. This work filled a gap, because the Hungarian National Cancer Registry, similarly to other cancer registries, does not include the tumor stages...

IMPORTANCE: The CD133 protein has been considered a key biomarker of cancer stem cells in various cancers. However, the expression status and prognostic significance of CD133 in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) are poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression of cancer stem cell biomarker CD133 in cSCC tissue and its effect on clinicopathological features and outcomes in patients with cSCC. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Immunohistochemistry was performed on a tissue microarray to investigate the expression levels of CD133 in cSCC tissue...

OBJECTIVES: Genital infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) has become one of the most frequently viral sexually transmitted diseases. The infection may remain asymptomatic, may take the form of external genital warts and may give raise to cervical cancers. The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of the patients with genital warts addressing to five tertiary referral dermato-venereological units in Romania (where patients from several counties are referred) and to compare the results with the out-patient data reported by all Romanian hospitals...

Risk of human papillomavirus (HPV) transmission during laser vaporisation of genital warts or loop electrode excision procedure is controversial. An oral rinse, a nasal swabs, history of HPV related diseases and data on HPV exposure were collected from 287 employees at departments of dermato-venerology and gynaecology in Denmark. A mucosal HPV type was found among 5.8% of employees with experience of laser treatment of genital warts as compared to 1.7% of those with no experience (p = 0.12). HPV prevalence was not higher in employees participating in electrosurgical treatment or cryotherapy of genital warts, or loop electrode excision procedure compared with those who did not...

In no other medical field former rare infections of the 1980(th) and 1990(th) occur again as this is seen in the field of venerology which is as well based on the mobility of the population. Increasing rates of infections in Europe, and increasing bacteriological resistances face health professionals with new challenges. The WHO estimates more than 340 million cases of illnesses worldwide every year. Diseases caused by sexually transmitted infections (STI) in a strict sense are syphilis, gonorrhea, lymphogranuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale, and chancroid...

From January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2011, from 33,753 blood samples for syphilis screening, Treponema pallidum infections were confirmed in 241 pregnant women at the Department of Dermatology, Venerology, and Dermatooncology of Semmelweis University Budapest. In this period, four children born to inadequately or untreated women were confirmed to have connatal syphilis. The height of rapid plasma reagin (RPR) titer was measured to determine the stage of the infection and to examine the success of the antilues therapy...

BACKGROUND: Painful nodule of the ear was described at the start of the 20th century as a form of chronic chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis (CNH). It comprises a painful erythematous papule or nodule appearing on the ear and adhering to cartilage, and which may or may not have a central scab. The aim of this study was to describe the clinical characteristics of CNH as well as the population currently affected by such lesions, and to identify predisposing factors. The secondary aim was to describe treatments commonly used in private dermatological practice and to examine their efficacy...

BACKGROUND: STIs like HIV and syphilis are acquired as comorbidities by high risk populations and may influence their original course and prognosis. METHODS: Between January of 2005 and 2013 data of syphilis and HIV patients were collected at the Department of Dermatology of Semmelweis University, Budapest. Diagnostic procedures included clinical analysis and screening of serum samples for Treponema pallidum and HIV antibodies. RESULTS: A total of 1,401 new syphilitic and 338 new HIV infections were diagnosed...

The Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) organized a Fellows Symposium adjacent to the European Academy of Dermatology and Venerology (EADV) spring meeting in Verona, Italy, in 2012. Wolf-Henning Boehncke from Geneva and Brian Kirby from Dublin formed the faculty. Five papers were presented, followed by extended discussions among participants and faculty. Two contributions were on comorbidities of psoriasis patients and 2 on treatment of non-plaque-type psoriasis; the fifth presentation was a discussion of possible modes of action of vitamin D derivatives in the treatment of psoriasis...

In the second half of the nineteenth century venereal diseases attained more attention and explosiveness in public discourse than ever before. Collective fear of the so-called French disease culminated in the emergence of melancholic syphilophobia a previously unknown form of hypochondriac suffering. This paper addresses the question of how this development occurred and focuses more specifically on the epistemological implications of the pathological fear of syphilis and highlights the systematic significance of etiological interpretation and nosological conceptualization of venereal disease...

INTRODUCTION: Survival of patients with malignant melanoma primarily depends on tumor stage. Hungarian National Cancer Registry does not specify tumors according to TNM stages. AIM: The authors aimed to survey the stage distribution of melanomas at the Department of Dermatology, Dermatooncology and Venerology, Semmelweis University. METHOD: 1160 patients (558 males and 602 females, aged 60.5±16 and 57±17 years, respectively) diagnosed with cutaneous melanoma between 2004-2009 were included...

BACKGROUND: Melasma is a common acquired cause of facial hyperpigmentation seen predominantly among females with significant psychological and social impact. It is often recalcitrant to treatment. Several topical hypopigmenting agents have been used to combat melasma. Hydroquinone and Kojic Acid are well established monotherapeutic agents for treating melasma. OBJECTIVES: This study focuses mainly on the efficacy of once daily application of 4% Hydroquinone and 0...
