Look at my pearly white teeth: Exploring adolescents' oral health behavior.

Public Health Nurs 2018 Dec 9. Epub 2018 Dec 9.

College of Health and Human Services, Indiana State University, Terre Haute, Indiana.

Informed by grounded theory, this study explored adolescent oral health behaviors to determine what factors influence them and to develop a substantive theory explaining the social process behind the behaviors identified. Multiple types of data were collected and analyzed simultaneously: demographic and oral health questionnaires, 16 individual interviews, eight small group discussions, field notes, and investigator memoing. Participants were 37 Midwestern adolescents aged 13-18, and most were White or African-American females 14 years of age whose parents had at least a high school education. Read More

Male Genital Dermatology: A Primer for the Sexual Medicine Physician.

Sex Med Rev 2018 Nov 17. Epub 2018 Nov 17.

Tulane University School of Medicine, Department of Urology, New Orleans, LA, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: The dermatologic conditions affecting the male genitalia are diverse and range from normal variants and benign growths to overt malignancy. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of urologic dermatology training in most residency programs, and many dermatologic lesions with a classic appearance on other areas of the body may have atypical presentations on the genitalia. Patients may present to a variety of physicians without receiving a definitive diagnosis, which can be highly distressing to the afflicted individual. Read More

[Scleroatrophic extragenital lichen and inflammatory vitiligo in children: a rare association].

Pan Afr Med J 2018 29;30:75. Epub 2018 May 29.

Service de Dermatologie et Vénérologie, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire IBN SINA, Faculté de Médecine et de Pharmacie, Université Mohammed V, Rabat, Maroc.

Scleroatrophic lichen (SL) and vitiligo are two depigmenting disorders which may occur separately or, rarely, in combination. Their association may seem logical because both these disorders are characterized by the suspicion of an autoimmune pathogenesis. We here report the case of a 8-year old girl, with no notable medical history, presenting with achromic macules and papular nonpruritic lesions evolving over 6 months. Read More

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers for conservation management of the endangered Great-billed Seed-finch, Sporophila maximiliani (Aves, Passeriformes), and cross-amplification in other congeners.

Mol Biol Rep 2018 Sep 19. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Departamento de Ciências Ambientais, Universidade Federal de São Carlos, Campus de Sorocaba, Rod. João Leme dos Santos, Km 110, Sorocaba, SP, CEP 18052-780, Brazil.

The Great-billed Seed-finch, Sporophila maximiliani, is a threatened neotropical bird that has declined mainly due to illegal trapping, with very few records in the wild in the last two decades. Despite the existence of a considerable captive population that could be used for reintroductions into the wild, many individuals are known to be hybrids either with other species or subspecies of the genus. Forensic investigations are urgently needed to distinguish between birds born in captivity from those from illegal trade. Read More

Two novel mutations in the ANTXR2 gene in a Chinese patient suffering from hyaline fibromatosis syndrome: A case report.

Mol Med Rep 2018 Oct 22;18(4):4004-4008. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

Department of Dermatology, Capital Institute of Pediatrics, Peking University Teaching Hospital, Beijing 100020, P.R. China.

Hyaline fibromatosis syndrome (HFS; MIM 228600) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the abnormal growth of hyalinized fibrous tissue at subcutaneous regions on the scalp, ears and neck. The disease is caused by either a homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation of the anthrax toxin receptor 2 (ANTXR2) gene. The present study describes a patient with HFS confirmed by clinical examination as well as histopathological and genetic analyses. Read More

Purpose Of Review: Genital dermatology represents a challenge to many providers. Though dermatologic lesions involving the genitalia may present to any of a number of practices, ranging from primary care to urology, gynecology, and dermatology, few training programs provide significant training regarding the diagnosis and management of genital dermatologic lesions. The purpose of this review is to provide urologists with an overview of common genital dermatological lesions that may be encountered in a clinic. Read More

Pearly Whites Dental Clinic, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Introduction: Mandibular premolars exhibit considerable variations in their root canal system that can be particularly difficult to diagnose. Avoiding mishaps and successful nonsurgical endodontic therapy depends on an absolute understanding of the root and root canal morphology to locate, prepare, and obturate the canals.

Methods: This case report describes the endodontic therapy of a mandibular first premolar with 2 roots and 3 canals with confirmation of cone-beam computed tomography. Read More

Repeatable between-individual differences in the behavioural manifestation of underlying circadian rhythms determine chronotypes in humans and terrestrial animals. Here, we have repeatedly measured three circadian behaviours, awakening time, rest onset and rest duration, in the free-ranging pearly razorfish, , facilitated by acoustic tracking technology and hidden Markov models. In addition, daily travelled distance, a standard measure of daily activity as fish personality trait, was repeatedly assessed using a State-Space Model. Read More

Anatomic dissection of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) in paired fresh-frozen cadaveric knee joints.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2017 Feb 22;137(2):249-255. Epub 2016 Dec 22.

Center for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, University Hospital Marburg, Marburg, Germany.

Introduction: Different dissection studies as well as comparative studies about the anterolateral ligament of the knee (ALL) already exist and the structure's topology and properties have been shown. However, most of the studies investigating the ligament were performed in embalmed knees, which is thought to change the structural integrity of ligaments and thus the topologic and dynamic measurements. Since the biomechanical function of the ALL is not fully understood until today and a correlation with the pivot shift phenomenon is yet speculative, further studies will have to clarify its definitive importance.

Harvesting of wild-living animals is often intensive and may selectively target heritable behavioral traits. We studied the exploitation dynamics and the vulnerability consequences of individual heterogeneity in movement-related behaviors in free-ranging pearly razorfish (Xyrichthys novacula).

There is a lively debate about the existence, origins and discoverer of the anterolateral ligament of the knee. The complex anatomy of the lateral aspect of the knee has made it difficult to differentiate between various structures such as the iliotibial band, capsulo-osseous layer, Kaplan's fibres and the anterolateral capsule.

Pearly penile papules (PPP) are common, benign lesions that appear on the corona of the glans penis during adolescence or early adulthood. Despite their benign nature, PPP are known to cause significant distress because of their resemblance to sexually transmitted infections such as condyloma acuminata. PPP can be clinically distinguished based on their uniform, dome-shaped papules that orient in one to two rows around the glans penis. Read More
