In 30 patients with foliaceous pemphigus the frequency of strongyloidiasis was 40%, by three Baermann- Moraes examination. In the "Hospital do Penfigo", for patients with pemphigus of Uberaba, the frequencies of strongyloidiasis in the employees (n = 14) and students (n=47), of the annexed nursery, also were high, respectively 35.7 % and 23.4%. In 7(58.3) of 12 samples from the soil of the hospital courtyard were found free-life forms of Strongyloides. The environmental factor and the susceptibility of the pacients were associated with the high transmission of the strongyloidiasis.

Abstract Pemphigus is a serious autoimmune skin disease associated with a high morbidity and a significant mortality rate. Prior to the advent of steroid therapy, mortality rates of 70–100% were reported. 1 With the use of corticosteroids and antibiotics, the mortality associated with pemphigus has dropped to 15–44%. 2,3 Currently, where corticosteroids are used in conjunction with immunosuppressives, the mortality rate is approximately 10–20%. 4 Therapy of a pemphigus patient should include a t...

Abstract Fogo Selvagem (Wildfire) is a cutaneous disease characterized by a specific epidemiology, generalized distribution of bullae followed by an exfoliative erythroderma, and frequently, a grave prognosis, if untreated. Its etiology is unknown and the pathogenesis only partly understood. The histopathologic hallmark is the presence of acantholysis in the superficial layers of the epidermis. The acantholysis is due to the binding of immunoglobulin to the intercellular cement substance of the ...

Pemphigus is frequently a fatal skin disease. The cause of death and the events leading to it were investigated by examining patient records and autopsy data of thirteen patients who died as a result of this disease at the UCLA Hospital between 1965 and 1980. The diagnosis was confirmed histologically and/or by immunofluorescent studies of the skin and serum. Infection was the most frequent cause of death, and septicemia was found in nine of thirteen cases. The most commonly found organism was S...

: A study was made of the number of T lymphocytes and thier functional activity in 16 patients with pemphigus vulgaris, 5 with involvement of the mucosa, 3 with involvement of the skin and 8 with involvement of both; 2 patients had been suffering from the disease for 7 years, one for one year and the remainder for one to 6 months prior to this investigation. Patients were tested prior to institution of treatment, while receiving initially high doses of steroids and subsequently on maintenance do...

SUMMARY This paper is based upon a study of all available records of patients certified as having died in hospital from pemphigus and pemphigoid in England and Wales from 1962 to 1969. The results differ from most published series in that many of the 210 patients died still with extensive skin lesions and with biochemical abnormalities, such as low serum albumin, sodium and chloride, which were secondary to this. Side-effects of treatment, such as diabetes, peptic ulceration, and infections, wer...

Background Environmental and genetic factors may contribute to the pathogenesis of pemphigus vulgaris (PV) as an autoimmune disease. We aimed to determine rates of seropositivity for immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies against a number of infectious agents in untreated and treated PV patients and in healthy individuals. Methods Eighty-two newly diagnosed untreated PV patients (34 men and 48 women; mean ± standard deviation [SD] age: 44.18 ± 14.43 years) and 36 previously diagnosed patients under i...

: A case of presumed person-to-person transmission of Strongyloides steracolis is described. The index case was immunocompromised following high dose glucocorticosteroid therapy for myelodysplasia, which resulted in reactivation of latent strongyloides infection with the hyperinfestation syndrome. Physicians unfamiliar with this disease should realize that a history of foreign travel is unnecessary to acquire this parasite, and that transmission to persons in close proximity to the index case do...

Um levantamento retrospectivo de 473 casos de acidentes ofidicos admitidos em um hospital-escola brasileiro de 1984 a 1990 revelou 91 casos sem envenenamento e/ou causados por serpentes nao-peconhentas. Em 17 casos a serpente foi identificada e um paciente foi mordido por um reptil que se assemelha as serpentes (Amphisbaena mertensii). Em 43 casos o diagnostico foi clinico (sinal das presas na ausencia de sinais de envenenamento). Os demais 30 casos foram de pacientes que se queixavam de terem s...
