    Learning points Ainhum presents as a soft tissue constriction of the digits and can lead to autoamputation.[casereports.bmj.com] […] of the digit[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] rotation; in grade III there is osseous involvement and grade IV when autoamputation has occurred. 2 Conservative therapy includes topical or injectable corticosteroids,[casereports.bmj.com]

  • Frostbite

    Frostbite may result in loss of skin and tissue requiring amputation; it occurs most often on the exposed areas such as extremity digits, ears, etc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The usual treatment is observation for demarcation of the injury before amputation or autoamputation of the dry gangrene that may set in between 1 and 3 weeks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation

    Although it is widely accepted that uterine artery embolization (UAE) is an effective therapeutic strategy for postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), no consensus has been reached regarding the efficacy of UAE in patients with PPH with disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). This single-center retrospective cohort[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Electrical Injury

    Upper-extremity wounds can be covered with a variety of flaps. However, pedicled distant flaps still have a place in treatment, especially in the early stages of wound restoration after a severe electrical injury. The purpose of this clinical study was to present the use of the pedicled abdominal flap, using the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dactylitis

    To identify isolated peripheral enthesitis and/or dactylitis as a subset of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and to define the clinical characteristics of these patients. We examined 401 unselected patients with PsA seen in 3 Italian rheumatological centers over a 6 month period. The diagnosis of PsA was based upon the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tungiasis

    Complications include severe itching, pain, inflammatory reaction leading to autoamputation of digits, pyoderma (cellulitis) and tetanus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    We report an as yet undocumented association of generalized epidermal nevus with striate keratoderma, ainhum-like digital constriction, and autoamputation of the right fifth[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitochondrial DNA Depletion Syndrome

    Navajo neurohepatopathy includes the above manifestations, as well as fractures, mutilation and autoamputation of the digits, and eye problems.[sema4genomics.com]

  • Leprosy

    More than 200 000 new cases of leprosy are detected worldwide annually.

Skin biopsies of 33 patients with TL and 24 with sarcoidosis were reviewed on hematoxylin and eosin- and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Extensive Burns

    The potential of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) to improve cosmetic and functional outcomes has been demonstrated; however, there have been few clinical comparative studies assessing the long-term morphological, histological and functional changes after ADM placement. This study was designed to retrospectively[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
