Skin Cancer Acral-Lentiginous Melanoma Dr. James L. Campbell Jr., MD discusses Skin Cancer Acral-Lentiginous Melanoma. See more at PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT!!! Acral lentiginous melanoma accounts for 7% of all melanomas. Acral lentiginous melanoma is more common in males than females, and usually in older people. It occurs primarily on the hands and feet, including about the nails of people with darker skin types (IV-VI). Similar lesions also occur on the modified skin around the mouth, *** and genitalia. Acral lentiginous melanoma is the most common form of melanoma in the skin of Asian and Black people, accounting for more than half of melanomas in these groups. It is the least common form of melanoma in Caucasian people. Other than location, the lesion is similar in appearance to lentigo maligna and lentigo maligna melanoma, appearing as a flat slowly expanding pigmented macule with a fairly uniform, mottled color. It appears and evolves over years. The sudden appearance of a pigmented band originating at the proximal nail fold or pigmentation in the proximal or distal nail fold is called Hutchinson's sign is suggestive of acral-lentiginous melanoma.
Vandenbos procedure for ingrown toenails The Vandenbos procedure is a rational physiologic approach to the problem of onychocryptosis/ingrown toenail (overgrown toe skin) and yields a cosmetically excellent result that will never recur. For more information regarding this procedure, please visit www.ingrowntoenails.ca The Vandenbos procedure was first described by Vandenbos and Bowers in 1959. They theorized that pressure necrosis of the soft tissues surrounding the nail due to weight bearing is the primary cause of ingrowing toenails.Unlike other procedures, the nail is not touched. The overgrown toe skin is removed with a generous and adequate excision. When healed, the nail fold skin remains low and tight at the side of the nail.

Cold Sores NYC - (212)-644-9494 - NYC Cold Sores (212)-644-9494 Herpes simplex Herpes simplex is a common viral infection that presents with localised blistering. It affects most people on one or more occasions during their lives. There are two main types of herpes simplex virus (HSV), although there is considerable overlap. Type 1, which is mainly associated with facial infections (cold sores or fever blisters) Type 2, which is mainly genital (genital herpes) Both type 1 and type 2 herpes simplex viruses reside in a latent state in the nerves which supply sensation to the skin. During an attack, the virus grows down the nerves and out into the skin or mucous membranes where it multiplies, causing the clinical lesion. After each attack it 'dies back' up the nerve fibre and enters the resting state again. First or primary attacks of Type 1 infections occur mainly in infants and young children, which are usually mild or subclinical. In crowded, underdeveloped areas of the world up to 100% of children have been infected by the age of 5. In higher socioeconomic groups the incidence is lower, for example less than half of university entrants in Britain have been infected. Type 2 infections occur mainly after puberty, often transmitted ***ually. The initial infection more commonly causes symptoms. How do you get the infection? The infection can be passed on from someone else with an active infection and it can also be passed on from individuals without symptoms. The virus is shed in saliva and genital ...
