Diagnosis and Reporting of Dysplastic (Atypical, Clarks) Nevi – a Reassessment

Review Article of American Journal of Dermatological Research and Reviews Diagnosis and Reporting of Dysplastic (Atypical, Clarks) Nevi – a Reassessment Eric Schloss, M.D., FRCP(C), Clinical Professor1, Jaggi Rao, M.D., FRCP(C), Clinical Professor2, Marianne Hrabok, Ph.D.3 1Dermatology & Dermatopathology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alberta; 2Dermatology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alberta; 3Faculty of Medicine, University of Alberta Faculty of Medicine, University of Calgary. This article on dysplastic nevi was compiled and written in August 2004 but never published in a print journal. It is our opinion that now, 15 years later, the same conclusions documented in the initial article still exist. In fact, the further studies and reports strongly support the lack of malignancy (nor evidence of pre-cursors of malignancy) in correctly histologically diagnosed junctional or compound dysplastic nevi and the lack of need of re-excision of these nevi in almost all cases. 1,2,3,4 Keywords: dysplastic, melanoma, pathology ...

Psicanalista Membro do Traço Freudiano Veredas Lacanianas Escola de Psicanálise;3Graduanda de Psicologia na Faculdade Pernambucana de Saúde – FPS Objective: This work has the purpose of analyzing some theoretical reasons which led Dr. Sigmund Freud to distance himself from the Neurology field, consequently creating his own new investigation method called Psychoanalysis, which opened an entirely new field of comprehension and intervention of the treatment of the discontent in its psychic cause. By distance from the Neurological field we can understand the creation of Psychoanalysis, and a conceptual shift where the body is no longer a cause, but an object: in this case, a discursive object. Results: The main consequence of this turnout was the vouching of the effects of language in the sick individual’s body, specifically in reference of the many forms of pain and discontent. Conclusion: The Psychoanalysis, thus founded in the word and in the language, has become fundamental to the health sciences for the understanding of all forms of illness, which can be better understood through the patient’s words and their due listening. Keywords: pain, psychoanalysis, Freud, language, body ...

Introduction. Measles is an acute infectious disease, whose etiological agent is a RNA virus of the paramyxovirus family. It is transmitted by aerosols through nasopharyngeal secretion within four to six days before the appearance of rash up to four days after. The clinical manifestations of the disease are quite characteristic and may evolve with serious complications, being one of the main causes of morbidity in malnourished or immunosuppressed children and under one year old. Currently the triple viral vaccine is the only way to prevent the disease, providing protection against measles, and also for mumps and rubella. However, some outbreaks are becoming more frequent, including in Brazil and may be related to several factors such as individuals who were not vaccinated by individual decision, thus exposing unvaccinated populations to the pathogen. Objective. To verify the prevalence of measles cases in Brazil from 2018 to 2019. Method. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted by surveying the numbers of cases reported by measles in the regions of Brazil from 2018 to 2019, available from the World Health Organization (WHO) database.

From November 26, 2018 to October 19, 2019, there were a total of 16,991 confirmed measles cases in eleven states of Brazil. In 2018, the state of Amazonas had the highest ...
