    "Post-finasteride syndrome": what to tell our female patients?
    Br J Dermatol 2018 Apr 6. Epub 2018 Apr 6.
    Department of Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, Florida, U.S.A.
    Postmarketing surveillance from men using finasteride, a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor (5ARI), for male pattern hair loss (MPHL) includes reports of various forms of sexual dysfunction, such as decreased libido, erectile and ejaculatory dysfunction, and gynecomastia. Purported mechanisms for these effects include the decreased production of neurosteroids, which may regulate sexual desire and function, and impaired testosterone metabolism, leading to relative estrogen excess. Large randomized controlled trials of men on 5ARIs for benign prostatic hypertrophy have shown increased sexual dysfunction compared to placebo; however, similar association with MPHL was not statistically significant.

    [The forensic medical characteristic of sudden death associated with metabolic syndrome].
    Sud Med Ekspert 2018;61(1):60-64
    Bureau of forensic medical expertise, Moscow Health Department, Moscow, Russia, 115516.
    The detection of grade II-III central obesity on a corpse in conjunction with the identification of two additional criteria (such as arterial hypertension and impaired glucose tolerance) provides, if combined with the autopsy data (including the visual reduction of muscular mass, the increased total amount of the adipose tissue, gynecomastia in men together with hypertrophied abdominal adipose tissue accumulation, decreased face and body pilosis), a basis for diagnostics of metabolic syndrome (MS). The objective parameters for this purpose are waist circumference measurements, corpse weight and height, the degree of visceral obesity, narrowing of the renal arteries as a result of their compression by the surrounding adipose tissue, and accumulation of epicardial fat confirmed by the results of the biochemical analysis. The signs of plasmorrhagia combined with fibrinoid degeneration of the vascular walls in the microcirculatory bed make it possible to suspect, with a high degree of probability, the development of hypertensive crisis that may result in a sudden death of the patients presenting with metabolic syndrome.
