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

These include pain on injection, redness, post injection flare and skin discoloration. The rate of joint infection is considered to be very low when strict aseptic techniques are followed. Systemic effects include rapid suppression of serum cortisol, adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) and inflammatory markers (erythrocyte sedimentation rate [ESR], C-reactive protein (...) ., the elderly and patients with renal or hepatic impairment). Adverse events such as endocrine dysfunction and sleep-disordered breathing are associated with long-term opioid therapy in chronic pain. Results from two studies showed that oral diclofenac has a higher incidence of adverse GI symptoms, whereas topical diclofenac has a higher incidence of local application site reactions, commonly dry skin, rash, and pruritus. Adverse events associated with topical capsaicin are limited to temporary burning

forms of microsurgery. Their use in microsurgical operations spans a range that includes free tissue flap [1]. The revival of hirudotherapy was spurred by the 1960 paper, “Venous congestion of flaps treated by application of leeches,” by Deganc and Zdravic in the British Journal of Plastic Surgery . It sought to address a major issue plaguing reconstructive microsurgery at the time: the “blue flap.” This term referred to the ominous discoloration seen in a flap that had become cyanotic, [2 (...) ]. To improve blood flow, the pair introduced Hirudo medicinalis , a species of leech native to Europe. In a series of 20 cases of venous congestion, Deganc and Zdravic allowed leeches to bite and attach to patients’ skin and then suck blood from the tissue until they detached of their own volition. A 70% success rate for complete restoration of blood flow was observed, while the other 30% of patients in the cohort experienced at least partial decongestion. Deganc and Zdravic proposed a dual mechanism

The current understanding of acne pathogenesis is continuously evolving. Key pathogenic factors that play an important role in the development of acne are follicular hyperkeratinization, microbial colonization with Propionibacterium acnes , sebum production, and complex inflammatory mechanisms involving both innate and acquired immunity. In addition, studies have suggested that neuroendocrine regulatory mechanisms, diet
