Exit site infection (ESI) is a leading complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD), at an incidence of 0.6 episodes per year in the U.S., and a major risk factor for catheter removal and peritonitis. An estimated 20% of all peritonitis cases are preceded by an ESI, with up to 50% of S. aureus peritonitis associated with ESI. Gram-negative ESIs are less associated with succeeding peritonitis than their gram-positive counterparts, though when present, are associated with a lower peritonitis cure rate...

Objectives: COVID-19 has had a severe impact on morbidity and mortality among nursing home (NH) residents. Earlier detection of SARS-CoV-2 may position us to better mitigate risk of spread. Both asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic transmission are common in outbreaks, and threshold temperatures, such as 38C, for screening for infection could miss timely detection in the majority. Design: Retrospective cohort study using electronic health records Methods: We hypothesized that in long-term care reside...

METHODS The study surveyed 15 commercial health care insurers, 50 BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) plans, Medicare, Medicaid, and Veterans Affairs. Information on treatment coverage for vitiligo, sp...

Over 70% of patients with acne vulgaris wait at least 1 year before seeing a dermatologist and instead use over-the-counter (OTC) acne treatments. This study determined the association between product characteristics (ingredients, vehicles, and marketing claims) and consumer-reported positive and negative features of top-rated acne OTCs. This cohort study evaluated the top 1% of acne OTCs across the five largest online retailers. Products were analyzed for product characteristics and consumer-re...

Actinic keratoses (AK) are common, costly, and may evolve to keratinocyte carcinoma (KC): basal cell (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the skin. Time to malignant transformation is controversial. We used data from the placebo arm (n=166) of a randomized trial of veterans with multiple prior KCs. Study dermatologists examined participants’ faces/ears at enrollment and semiannual visits. Clinically diagnosed AKs were marked, photographed, and treated with cryotherapy (starting at 6 months...
