that a proliferating hemangioma is an attempt to normalize hypoxic tissue that occurred in utero . Clinical presentation Most infantile hemangiomas are not present at birth but precursor lesions such as telangiectasia or faint discoloration of the skin or hypopigmentation can often be seen. The lesion can be mistaken as a bruise from birth trauma or as a capillary malformation (port wine stain) (refer to ).[ , ] Figure 1. The photos on the left depict the precursor lesion (faint color with halo ). The photos (...) of hemangioma growth. Permanent sequelae, such as telangiectasia, anetodermal skin, redundant skin, and a persistent superficial component, can occur after hemangioma involution (refer to ). In a retrospective cohort study of 184 hemangiomas, the overall incidence of significant sequelae was 54.9%. Sequelae were more common in combined hemangiomas, hemangiomas with a step or abrupt border, and cobblestone surface hemangiomas. Furthermore, this study revealed that the average age to hemangioma involution

, trauma, tumours and various skin diseases. Prolonged exposure to water and irritants or allergens can cause nail brittleness and loss, coloration anomalies. Nail damage is observed in many general medical conditions, including psoriasis and other skin diseases and chronic illness. Several drugs expose patients to nail lesions through various mechanisms, particularly cytotoxic agents (anticancer drugs) and anti-infectives. Cytotoxic drugs often cause embarrassing and sometimes severe or painful nail (...) lesions. Anti-infectives, including tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones, antimalarial and leprosy drugs expose patients to lesions associated with light, such as nail loosening and discoloration. Retinoids, used in the treatment of acne, expose patients to nail brittleness, inflammation and deformation. The damage is generally reversible but sometimes persists for several years. ©Prescrire 1 July 2014 Download the full review. | | | Prescrire Your change of address has been received and will be processed

Most people with varicose veins have no symptoms but venous insufficiency may cause fatigue, heaviness, aching, throbbing, itching and cramps in the legs. Chronic venous insufficiency can lead to skin discoloration, inflammatory dermatitis and ulceration. Great saphenous vein insufficiency is the most common form of venous (...) insufficiency in people presenting with symptoms. 2.2 A NICE guideline describes recommendations for the diagnosis and management of varicose veins. Many people have varicose veins that do not cause any symptoms or need treatment on medical grounds. However, some people will need treatment for the relief of symptoms or if there is evidence of skin discolouration, inflammation or ulceration.

Congenital Erythropoietic Porphyria with Erythrodontia: A Case Report. The causes for intrinsic tooth discoloration can be separated into two categories as systemic and local. Systemic causes are either genetic or drug-induced effects. The development of dentition can also be affected by a number of systemic factors and metabolic diseases such as porphyria. Congenital erythropoietic porphyria (CEP), also known as Gunther's disease, is a metabolic disease caused by a transformation in the gene (...) that codifies uroporphyrinogen-3 synthesis, leading to porphyrin aggregation in urine, skin, bone, and dentin.A 21-month-old girl with erythrodontia was referred to Paediatric Dentistry Department in September 2017.

In vitro and in vivo activities of the riminophenazine TBI-166 against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The riminophenazine agent clofazimine (CFZ) is repurposed as an important component of the new short-course multidrug-resistant tuberculosis regimen and significantly shortens first-line regimen for drug-susceptible tuberculosis in mice. However, CFZ use is hampered by its unwelcome skin discoloration in patients. A new riminophenazine analog TBI-166 was selected (...) as a potential next-generation antituberculosis riminophenazine following an extensive medicinal chemistry effort. Here, we evaluated the activity of TBI-166 against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and its potential to accumulate and discolor skin. In vitro activity of TBI-166 against both drug-sensitive and drug-resistant M. tuberculosis is more potent than that of CFZ. Spontaneous mutants resistant to TBI-166 were found at a frequency of 2.3x10-7 in wild strains of M. tuberculosis TBI-166 demonstrates at least
