Objective: Wilderness expeditions inevitably involve risk to participants. Understanding of expedition-related illnesses and injuries allows institutions and individuals to develop strategies to mitigate risk. We describe findings and trends in soft tissue injuries, the second-most common type of injury, among participants in the National Outdoor Leadership School expeditions from 1984 to 2012. Read More

Background: Lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) is characterized clinically by erythematous, succulent, edematous, nonscarring plaques in sun-exposed areas. Results of histological examination show perivascular and periadnexal lymphocytic infiltration and interstitial mucin deposition. The main differential diagnoses are polymorphous light eruption, Jessner's lymphocytic infiltration of the skin, reticular erythematous mucinosis, and pseudolymphoma. Read More

Investigators conducted a detailed clinical examination and administered a validated questionnaire that covered medical history, disease evolution, lifestyle habits, previous treatments, skin care and quality of life.

Background: Contrary to other countries, in which a unique entity is recognized, two sub-groups of light eruption, benign summer light eruption and polymorphous light eruption, are identified in France. Benign summer light eruption was individualized with a few criteria: age at onset between 25-35 years old, female predominance, onset within 12 hours after an intensive exposure to sun, presence of lesions on areas which have not been regularly exposed to sunlight such as the upper chest, absence of lesions on the face, improvement during the summer period and negativity of the polychromatic phototest. In fact patients usually presenting with benign summer light eruption do not have all the criteria and they gradually develop a polymorphous light eruption. Read More
