164. Preventive chemotherapy to control soil-transmitted helminth infections in at-risk population groups

helminthiases are endemic and where sanitation is inadequate, parasite eggs are excreted in the faeces of infected individuals and contaminate the soil. Humans become infected through ingestion of eggs or larvae that are passed in the faeces of infected people. In addition, hookworm eggs hatch in the soil, releasing larvae that mature into a form that can actively penetrate the skin. There is no direct person-to-person transmission, or infection from fresh faeces, because eggs passed in faeces need about 3

and less likely to achieve remission off-treatment than purely mucosal PV. 13 6.1 Clinical presentation The diagnosis of PV should be suspected in any patient with mucocutaneous erosions or blisters. The oral mucosa is the ?rst site of involvement in the majority of cases, and PV may remain con?ned to the mucosal surfaces or extend to involve the skin (average lag period of 4 months). 14–16 Diagnostic delay is very common when PV is con?ned to the oral mucosa. 17 A minority of patients will present (...) with cutaneous erosions, but oral erosions will, eventually, occur in most cases. PV presents across a wide age range with peak fre- quency in the third to sixth decades. 7.0 Laboratory diagnosis Perilesional skin biopsies should be taken for histology and direct immuno?uorescence (DIF). In patients with isolated oral disease, a histology specimen should be taken from per- ilesional mucosa and a DIF sample taken from an uninvolved area, ideally from the buccal mucosa. 18 Suprabasal acantholysis with blister

For reference, the inferior tip of the scapula is at the 7th rib in the average, upright adult with the arms by the side.
