Dermatologists must be familiar with the peculiarities of the micro-organisms that may affect the elderly, in order to optimize the diagnosis and treatment of infections, which may affect their skin, especially because the world population is rapidly aging. It is estimated that there will be 434 million individuals over 80 years of age in 2050. Since the elderly population is rapidly increasing and their infections are usually more severe and different from those observed in younger adults, it leads to a statistical increase of the rates regarding hospitalization and mortality caused by infectious diseases among people over 85 years...

In the present study 66 layer flocks housed in different alternative husbandry systems were monitored from placement of birds on the farm until slaughter to evaluate a possible influence on the occurrence of selected non-infectious as well as infectious diseases. Postmortems were performed and the occurrence of extraintestinal Escherichia coli and Gallibacterium anatis was investigated. No specific postmortem findings were seen in pullets. Non-infectious diseases were mainly found in layers. Most prominent postmortem findings in layers were reproductive tract lesions and the presence of intestinal helminths...

S M Schellong
Symptoms of the leg or of both legs, may indicate a need for evaluation and/or treatment, which must be clarified urgently or even as an emergency situation. Among the diseases which must be considered from a vascular viewpoint are critical limb ischemia, suspicion of deep leg vein thrombosis and special forms of venous insufficiency. With respect to infections erysipelas and the syndrome of infected diabetic foot must be considered as well as peripheral and central leg paresis as orthopedic and neurological disorders, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Hemophagocytosis is well known in cytotoxic cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs), in which it may represent a sign of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis syndrome (HLHS), and is also typical of cutaneous Rosai-Dorfman disease (cRDD) (without prognostic relevance). Only rarely, has cutaneous hemophagocytosis (CH) been described in other skin conditions. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the clinicopathologic features of CH in skin biopsy specimens from patients with conditions other than CTCL or cRDD...

AIM: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common autoinflammatory disease. One of the common characteristics of this disease is its young age predominance. Nearly 90% of patients experience disease flares during early adult age periods. Currently there are limited data for the comparison of early versus late onset FMF and therefore the primary aim of this study was to investigate these two subsets with regard to their certain demographic, clinical and genetic differences. METHODS: Early (≤ 20 years, Group 1) and late (> 20 years, Group 2) onset FMF patients were identified from the national FMF registry that involves 2246 patients from 15 adult rheumatology clinics located in different geographical areas of Turkey...

BACKGROUND: There is an emerging need to develop consistent outcomes in clinical trials to allow effective comparison of treatment effects. No systematic review has previously looked at the reporting of outcome measures used in randomised controlled trials (RCTs) on treatment and prevention of cellulitis (erysipelas). OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this review was to describe the breadth of outcomes reported from RCTs on cellulitis treatment and prevention. The secondary aim was to identify outcome themes from patient and health care professionals' feedback from a cellulitis priority setting partnership (PSP)...

Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae is the causative agent of animal erysipelas and human erysipeloid. E. rhusiopathiae HP0728 and HP1472 have been reported to be down regulated in low-virulence or avirulent strains, but their pathogenic roles are not known. In this study, it was found that E. rhusiopathiae HP0728 and HP1472 were displayed on the surface of E. rhusiopathiae. Moreover, recombinant HP1472 could adhere to pig vascular endothelial cells. Recombinant HP0728 could bind host plasminogen but could not bind fibronectin...

Charcot foot is also known as Charcot disease or Charcot arthropathy. The associated aseptic destruction of the bones and joints of the foot results due to peripheral neuropathy accompanied by impaired pain perception, impaired vasomotricity with increased vasodilation, and an unequal weight distribution. Because it is frequently diagnosed late and, thus, incorrectly treated, serious complications often result. An 86-year-old man in poor health was diagnosed with erysipelas of the right foot. The foot was glossy and edematously swollen, showing necrosis of the distal phalanx of the third toe...

BACKGROUND: Cutaneous metastases represent 2% of all skin tumours. Their recognition can be challenging, as they may present with different clinical features, with consequent frequent delay and failure in diagnosis. OBJECTIVES: To review our series of cutaneous metastatic lesions, analyse their frequency according to patient gender, histotype, localization of the primary tumour, and site of cutaneous metastasis, and correlate this data with clinicopathological parameters...

PURPOSE: St. John of the Cross (1542-1591) died aged 49 years after 3 months of excruciating pain following a trivial lesion in his right foot. Erysipelas, a superficial bacterial infection of the skin, and subsequent sepsis were previously suggested as the cause of his death. Here, an alternative diagnosis is proposed. METHODS: An accurate perusal of his biography allowed the symptomatology, the clinical evolution, the depth of the infection and the associated systemic manifestations displayed by Fray John to be reconstructed...
