BACKGROUND: Diverse skin alterations may develop in patients under chronic haemodialysis. Among them, signs of premature photo-ageing have been described. AIM: To assess alterations in the physical properties of skin consistent with ageing effects and with cutaneous fluid exchanges during haemodialysis sessions. METHODS: In the first part of the study, 45 haemodialysed patients were compared to 45 age-, sex- and body-mass-index-matched healthy subjects. In the second part of the study, skin of 30 haemodialysed patients was assessed immediately before and after a haemodialysis session. The speed of ultrasound shear wave propagation was measured in each subject. Series of 16 multidirectional resonance running time measurements (RRTM) were performed on the forehead and/or the volar forearm. They were averaged for each subject. The corresponding intra-individual coefficients of variation were calculated as an estimate of the skin mechanical anisotropy. RESULTS: In both haemodialysed patients and their matched controls, RRTM values were significantly higher on the forearms than on the forehead. By contrast, no significant difference was found in RRTM values that could be ascribed to chronic haemodialysis. However, RRTM values were significantly increased as an immediate and probably transient effect of haemodialysis sessions. In healthy subjects, ageing was associated with increased RRTM values. CONCLUSION: Chronic haemodialysis does not appear to influence significantly the functional expression of the dermal ageing process. Subtle fluid movements occurring in the skin during haemodialysis sessions can be assessed by measuring non-invasively the speed of ultrasound shear wave propagation in the skin. [less ▲]

The verification of a 3D hydrodynamic model of the Ligurian Sea is presented. Two assimilation experiments have been carried out with this model: the assimilation of real SST, and the assimilation of SST forecasted by a statistical predictor. The aim of the study is to establish the skill of the model in these two configurations. The assimilation of predicted SST can help to increase the model skill when observations are not available, and preliminary results show that both approaches obtained similar results. The verification is done in a multi-scale approach, by decomposing the model results and the observations into several spatial scales, using 2D discrete wavelet transforms. At each scale the error between the model and the observations is calculated, and the scales where the biggest errors occur can be identified. The variability distribution of the model and the observations is also examined at each scale, to study the impact of the assimilation on the model variability. This methodology provides a scale-dependent insight in the study of the assimilation of SST and predicted SST. The differences between both assimilated data and how these differences affect the model results are examined. [less ▲]

Folliculitis decalvans consists of recurrent patchy painful folliculitis of the scalp causing scarring alopecia. The physiopathology of this condition is still unclear, but is likely a manifestation of chronic neutrophilic bacterial folliculitis. Numerous topical and systemic treatments (corticoteroids, anti-staphylococcal antibiotics) have been used with variable results. Based on the dapsone antimicrobial activity and its anti-inflammatory action especially directed to the neutrophil metabolism, we treated two patients with severe folliculitis decalvans with this drug.

Arachnoid cysts are benign congenital cavities arising in the subarachnoid space. Non-traumatic subdural effusion of cerebrospinal fluid is a rare complication requiring surgical treatment. Case Report: A 15-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital because of symptoms related to acute intracranial hypertension (headache and vomiting). The cerebral CT-scan revealed a subdural hygroma adjoining a voluminous Sylvian arachnoid cyst. Two arachnoid cysts were incidentally discovered 11 years before this dramatic complication. Moreover, the patient had suffered a cerebral concussion 2 years earlier, but interestingly did not develop cystic hemorrhage or rupture, contrary to numerous cases previously described in the literature. The location of the cysts and their regular follow-up did not allow foreseeing a cystic rupture. Hygroma evacuation was first performed after which a subdural peritoneal. shunting, using a programmable opening pressure valve, was implanted. Spontaneous rupture into the subdural space represents an unusual complication of arachnoid cysts. Clinical aspects, radiographic findings, pathogenesis and surgical management are described. It is important to point out that subdural hygroma or haematoma should never be excluded in the absence of trauma history, even in the case of small non-progressive cysts regularly supervised.
