A novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is an acute life-threatening disease, emerged in China, which imposed a potentially immense toll in terms of public health emergency due to high infection rate and has a devastating economic impact that attracts the world's attention. After that, on January 30, 2020, it was officially declared as a global pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO). The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) recognized it as a Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) and the disease named Coronavirus Disease-19 (COVID-19). Several studies have been ameliorated the active role of COVID-19 transmission, etiology, pathogenicity, and mortality rate as serious impact on human life. The symptoms of this disease may include fever, fatigue, cough and some peoples are severely prone to gastrointestinal infection. The elderly and seriously affected peoples are likely concerned with serious outcomes. In this review, we mainly aimed to provide a benchmark summary of the silent characteristics and findings of some candidates for antiviral drugs and immunotherapies such as plasma therapy, cytokine therapy, antibodies, intravenous immunoglobulin, and pharmaceutical health concerns that are related to this disease.

Reconstruction of postleishmaniasis scar with lateral cheek rotation flap.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2003 Jul;13(7):405-7

Department of Anatomy, Gomal Medical College, Dera Ismail Khan.

Objective: the aim of this study was to find a simple and economical technique to remove postleishmaniasis scar from the face.

Design: a non-randomized descriptive case series.

Place And Duration Of Study: the study was conducted between 1st January 1998 to 31st July 2000 in a private hospital of D.I.Khan.

Patients And Methods: Ten patients with postleishmaniasis scar on the face were selected for excision and reconstruction in this study. They were operated as day care under local anesthesia. Their age ranged between 18-30 years, with an average of 23.5 years. The size of scar varied from 2 cm2 to 6 cm2 with an average of 4.1 cm(2). After scar excision, lateral cheek rotation flap (reverse face-lift) was used to reconstruct the defect. Results were statistically analyzed.

Results: No major complications were encountered. However, minor complications like edema of the flap, seroma under the flap, flap tip necrosis and temporary neurapraxia were noted in two patients.

Conclusion: This is an excellent technique, which can be done on a day care basis under local anesthesia. Larger studies will help to explore this technique further.
