Skin Atrophy

Atrophic Skin


Presentation

  • AHO can be associated with pseudohypoparathyroidism type IA (PHP-IA) with upregulation of parathyroid hormone, whereas in pseudo-pseudohypoparathyroidism (PPHP), an endocrinopathy is not present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Finally, so-called "natural" anti-inflammatory agents are useful in the present invention.[google.ch]
Short Stature
  • Patients with AHO have short stature, obesity, brachydactyly and subcutaneous calcifications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Skin atrophy with pigmentary changes, telangiectasia, short stature, premature aging, and skeletal abnormalities are characteristic. There is an increased risk of malignancy, particularly osteosarcomas and skin cancer.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
Heat Intolerance
  • Hypohidrosis in the affected areas, heat intolerance, and febrile convulsions were noted in infancy and childhood. No new skin lesions developed, and the existing ones, the sweating disturbance, and the heat intolerance gradually improved with time.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Rhinitis
  • Psoriasis vulgaris 25 Mean age (years) 43 (range 22-57) Mean duration of treatment with Group III or IV topical steroids (years) 16 (range 6-25) Localization of skin atrophy: Extremities 40 Face 28 Trunk 12 Concomitant Diseases: Arthritis 7 Hypertonia 6 Rhinitis[llogo.hu]
Lesion of the Tongue
  • Scarring alopecia, congenital absence of three toenails, and a scarlike lesion of the tongue were also present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Cutis Laxa
  • Convert to ICD-10-CM : 701.8 converts approximately to: 2015/16 ICD-10-CM L11.9 Acantholytic disorder, unspecified Or: 2015/16 ICD-10-CM L57.2 Cutis rhomboidalis nuchae Or: 2015/16 ICD-10-CM L57.4 Cutis laxa senilis Or: 2015/16 ICD-10-CM L66.4 Folliculitis[icd9data.com]
Brachydactyly
  • Patients with AHO have short stature, obesity, brachydactyly and subcutaneous calcifications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Skeletal Dysplasia
  • This is likely the same disorder as the previously described ‘mesodermal dysgenesis of the iris and skeletal dysplasia’ and formerly listed as 270240 in OMIM. Systemic Features: This is a clinically heterogeneous disorder.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
Thin Lips
  • The face appeared to be emaciated, with a pinched nose, thin lips, sunken cheeks, and prominent eyes. A punch biopsy specimen from an individual papule from the left arm was obtained and analyzed under Verhoeff–van Gieson stain ( Figure, C).[jamanetwork.com]
Suggestibility
  • The results suggest that, compared with other fluorinated topical steroids, fluocortin butylester 0.75% is unlikely to produce significant dermal atrophy when used in the short and medium term.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • I called the nurse at my dr's office and she suggested that I use the triamcinolone cream on my face to clear up the reaction.[medhelp.org]
  • One other doctor i saw recommended not to do Articoll and just massage the spots (like all of you suggested) and he also suggested doing Ultra Sound on the spots to "lossen" them.[skincell.org]
Vaginal Bleeding
  • These symptoms include burning sensations, itchiness, vaginal bleeding, bleeding after intercourse, painful intercourse, recurrent urinary infection, urgency, problems reaching orgasm, decreased libido and vaginal dryness.[fbwgynplus.com]
Febrile Convulsions
  • Hypohidrosis in the affected areas, heat intolerance, and febrile convulsions were noted in infancy and childhood. No new skin lesions developed, and the existing ones, the sweating disturbance, and the heat intolerance gradually improved with time.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • The reduced expression of CD44 and HAS3 in patients was specifically restored in dermatoporotic patients after treatment. No difference in skin thickness was observed in controls after treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Pruritis Ani: Etiology and Management. Surg Clin N Am 2010; 90: 125-135.[fascrs.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Risk factors for reduced skin thickness and bone density: possible clues regarding pathophysiology, prevention, and treatment. J Am Acad Dermatol 1998;38(2 Pt 1):248-255. Havill S, Rademaker M.[medsafe.govt.nz]

Prevention

  • (ii) Since the present invention lay in the realisation of the practical application of the discovery that retinoids prevent skin atrophy, namely use of retinoids in the preparation of a medicament for use in the said prevention, there was no basis to[epo.org]
  • Moreover, calcipotriol is able to restore betamethasone-impaired HA synthesis in keratinocytes and prevent betamethasone-induced epidermal thinning in minipigs upon treatment with the calcipotriol/betamethasone gel.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The paper focus on steroid-induced changes related to skin atrophy and the interest of calcipotriol/betamethasone dipropionate fixed-combination gel to prevent steroid-induced reduction of dermal extracellular matrix components.[genoskin.com]
  • Below we provide some information in the prevention and management of these conditions.[pivotalmotionpodiatry.com.au]
  • Your skin Holds body fluids in, preventing dehydration Keeps harmful microbes out, preventing infections Helps you feel things like heat, cold, and pain Keeps your body temperature even Makes vitamin D when the sun shines on it Anything that irritates[icdlist.com]
