Actinomycosis : Article by Talib Najjar, DMD, MDS, PhD
Actinomycosis - Many infectious and inflammatory diseases affect the skin and the oral mucosa. Actinomycosis is one such characteristic and persistent infection. It is a subacute, chronic, cellulitic invasion of the soft tissues that causes the formation of external sinus tracts that discharge sulfur granules. This process spreads unimpeded by traditional anatomic barriers after the endogenous oral commensal organisms invade the tissues of the face and neck. The infection may spread to the pulmonary and gastrointestinal systems as well (Schaal, ...

Advancement Flaps : Article by Anthony P Sclafani, MD
Advancement Flaps - Skin defects created by trauma or excision of benign or malignant lesions may be repaired by numerous methods. Techniques include healing by secondary intention, full or partial-thickness skin grafts, or local skin flaps (ie, rotation, advancement flaps). More substantial defects, or those that also involve soft tissue, bone, and nerve, usually are repaired with axial pattern flaps, regional flaps, or revascularized free flaps.Many variables determine the type of repair chosen. Variables include defect size, functional deficit, ...

Alopecia Areata Hair Loss
Alopecia areata is the name for a condition in which round patches of hair loss appear suddenly. The hair-growing tissue is attacked by the patient's own immune cells for unknown reasons. There are three stages: first, there is sudden hair loss, then the patches of hair loss enlarge, and last, new hair grows back. This process takes months, sometimes more than a year, but rarely does the hair never grow back.
Alopecia Mucinosa : Article by Gervaise L Gerstner, MD
Alopecia Mucinosa - Alopecia mucinosa, often referred to as follicular mucinosis, was first reported by Pinkus in 1957. The dermatologic eruptions consist of follicular papules and/or indurated plaques that demonstrate distinct histological changes in the hair follicles that lead to hair loss. The accumulation of mucinous material in the damaged hair follicles and sebaceous glands creates an inflammatory condition and subsequent degenerative process. The face, neck and scalp are the sites most frequently affected, although lesions may appear ...
Anagen Effluvium : Article by Bryan D Seiff, MD
Anagen Effluvium - Normal human hairs can be classified according to the 3 phases of their growth cycle: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Anagen hairs are in a growing phase, during which the matrix cells of the hair follicle undergo vigorous mitotic activity. These hairs have long, indented roots covered with intact inner and outer root sheaths, and they are fully pigmented.Toward the end of the anagen phase, the amount of pigment decreases at the base of the follicle, which expands ...
Androgenetic Alopecia : Article by Robert Feinstein, MD
Androgenetic Alopecia - Androgenetic alopecia is an extremely common disorder affecting both men and women. The incidence is generally considered greater in males, although some evidence suggests that the apparent differences in incidence may be a reflection of different expression in males and females. This genetically determined disorder is progressive through the gradual conversion of terminal hairs into indeterminate hairs and finally to vellus hairs. Patients have a reduction in the terminal-to-vellus hair ratio, normally at least 2:1. ...
Anetoderma : Article by Stephen C Ho, MD
Anetoderma - Anetoderma (anetos, Greek for slack) is a benign condition with focal loss of dermal elastic tissue resulting in localized areas of flaccid or herniated saclike skin. The condition has been reported under various names including macular atrophy and dermatitis atrophicans maculosa.

However, both types of lesions may be found in the same patient, and they are histologically similar. Currently, ...

Individual ulcers typically last 1-2 weeks. Large ulcers may last several weeks to months.Though the process is self-limited, in some individuals there is almost continuous ulcer activity. Similar ulcers ...
