What Causes White Nails?

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 00:47:12 +0100

Discussion The nail matrix covers the area of the nail plate, and extends proximally in a crescent moon shape with the edges of the crescent extending proximally and inferiorly toward the underlying bone. The nail matrix is a multilayered epithelium that physiologically produces keratinization and gives rise to the nail plate. The distal matrix forms the lower 2/3s of the nail plate and the proximal matrix forms the upper 1/3 of the nail plate. the thickness of the nail plate is proportion to the matrix’s thickness. The nail plate’s free edge contour follows the shape of the nail’s lunula. Melanocytes occur in the nail matrix but are 1/6 as numerous as those in the skin epidermis. In the distal matrix about 50% are activable and 50% are dormant. In the proximal matrix alm...

What is the Criteria for Diagnosing Beçhet’s disease?

Mon, 12 Aug 2013 00:58:11 +0100

Discussion Beçhet’s disease (BD) is a multisystem vasculitis named for the Turkish dermatologist, Hulusi Beçhet. It has a prevalance in one study of 5.2-7.1 per 100,000 adults. It is more common in males than females but it depends on the cohort studied and there is variation among different ancestral groups. Venous vasculitis usually causes thrombotic events whereas arterial vasculitis causes aneurysms and thrombosis. Involvement of the central nervous system vasculature can be a major problem. Central venous thrombosis can cause isolated intracranial hypertension but also aphasia, hemiparesis and seizures. Pulmonary aneurysms are the leading cause of death in adults. Unlike many other autoimmune diseases BD usually does not affect the kidney. Gastrointestinal disease...

Researchers Identify New Gene Variants Associated With Risk For Behcet's Disease

Tue, 08 Jan 2013 09:00:00 +0100

Researchers have identified four new regions on the human genome associated with Behcet's disease, a painful and potentially dangerous condition found predominantly in people with ancestors along the Silk Road. For nearly 2,000 years, traders used this 4,000-mile network linking the Far East with Europe to exchange goods, culture and, in the case of the Silk Road disease, genes. National Institutes of Health researchers and their Turkish and Japanese collaborators published their findings in the advance online issue of Nature Genetics...
