There is a need for researchers to have easy reference to the wide spectrum of different types of quality of life (QoL) instruments that can be used in atopic dermatitis (AD). Previous reviews on QoL in AD do not cover the full spectrum of QoL measures used in studies on AD. This paper, on behalf of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Task Force on QoL contains information on instruments available for health-related QoL and family QoL assessment in AD including information on validation, experience of QoL assessment in AD for different purposes, peculiarities of QoL assessment in different age groups, expert analysis of available instruments including data on limitations of their use and recommendations of the Task Force...

Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is a rare inflammatory autoimmune disease with heterogeneous subtypes. To date, no therapeutic agents have been licensed specifically for patients with this disease entity and topical and systemic drugs are mostly used "off-label". The aim of the present guideline was to achieve a broad consensus on treatment strategies for patients with CLE by a European subcommittee, guided by the European Dermatology Forum (EDF) and supported by the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV)...

Documents of the Federal Commissioner for the Records of the State Security Service of the former GDR (BStU) show that two percent of the venereologists in the GDR worked for the Ministry of State Security (MfS) [1]. We analyzed documents of two venereologists who were working as unofficial informants with the MfS [2-5]. Both of them, informant "Schneider" and informant "Karl", had insights into the occurrences on closed venereology wards. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Mycoplasma genitalium is a cause of 10-35% of non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis in men and in women, and is associated with cervicitis and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Transmission of M. genitalium occurs through direct mucosal contact. In women, symptoms include vaginal discharge, dysuria or symptoms of PID - abdominal pain and dyspareunia. In men, urethritis, dysuria and discharge predominates. Asymptomatic infections are frequent. In this review, we present the evidence base for the recommendations in the 2016 European guideline on M...

BACKGROUND: Infantile hemangioma (IH) may have implications on parental distress and cosmetic disfigurement. To date, ultrapotent corticosteroids are used as a treatment of choice for superficial IH. However, due to their side effects and sometimes lack of IH regression, it is necessary to find alternative topical therapies. Timolol maleate 0.5% solution and gel are nonselective β-blockers that could inhibit proliferation and trigger regression of IH. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of topical ultrapotent corticosteroids and timolol maleate 0...
