Magnesium (Mg) therapy is often proposed against stress and to correct asthenia. Thus our aim has been to review the role of Mg, the mechanisms of its homeostasis before detailing the clinical presentations and etiologies of hypo- and hypermagnesemia and their exploration. Hypomagnesemia frequently occurs but is clinically rarely recognized without biological serum ionic determinations because causing atypical signs miming those of other ion deficiencies. Hypermagnesemia is uncommon but often occurs in the presence of renal insufficiency especially with excess of Mg administration. [less ▲]

Because symptoms associated with hypomagnesia are highly aspecific, this ionic abnormality is rarely searched for although it could be present in as much as 20 % of the population. The mode of correction (oral or intravenous) depends on the etiology, severity and clinical consequences of hypomagnesemia. Significant hypermagnesemia only occurs in the presence of renal insufficiency and/or acute excess administration, mainly by the intravenous route. If interruption of administration does not suffice, renal dialysis might become necessary to quickly correct the magnesemium serum levels. [less ▲]

Our ability to recognise the usual horizontal orientation Of Our own face (mirror orientation) as compared with another very familiar face (normal orientation) was examined in experiment 1. Participants did not use the same kind of information in determining the orientation of their own face as in determining the orientation of the other familiar face. The proportion of participants who reported having based their judgment on the location of an asymmetric feature (eg a mole) was higher when determining the orientation of their own face than when determining that of the other familiar face. In experiment 2, participants were presented with pairs of manipulated images of their own face and of another familiar face showing conflicting asymmetric features and configural information. Each pair consisted of one picture showing asymmetric features of a given face in a mirror-reversed position, while the facial configuration was left unchanged; and one picture in which the location of the asymmetric features was left unchanged, while the facial configuration was mirror-reversed. As expected from the hypothesis that asymmetric local features are more frequently used for the judgment of one's own face, participants chose the picture showing mirror-reversed asymmetric features when determining the usual orientation of their own face significantly more often than they chose the picture showing normally oriented asymmetric features when determining the orientation of the other face. These results are explained in terms of competing forward and mirror-reversed representations of one's own face. [less ▲]

Acne is a multifactorial disorder affecting the vast majority of adolescents and young adults. Among the therapeutic armamentum, estroprogestative contraception can be offered to young women. The choice must, however, be carefully targeted because the estroprogestative associations do not show similar anti-acne efficacy. A new contraceptive associating 20 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and 100 micrograms of levonorgestrel (Lowette) has proven its clinical efficacy in this indication. [less ▲]

Sun is at the origin of life. It can also be responsible for death. In the past decades cutaneous melanoma killed more and more young adults. Currently, the disease still progresses in the population, but survival increases hopefully. Sun is pointed out as the main culprit. Hence, protection against harmful effects of ultraviolets is mandatory. However, preventive measures to be taken generate heated scientific argument. Sunlight exposure particularly in moderation is indeed necessary for health through vitamin D3 synthesis and psychological effects on wellbeing. Vitamin D3 provides numerous biological effects, particularly on bone calcification and also by inhibiting proliferation and migration of malignant cells including melanoma cells. Hence, we are facing the dilemma between too much and too little ultraviolet light exposure. Anyway, one cannot advocate that people lie in the sun until they burn or until they turn a rich brown complexion. [less ▲]

Few diseases exhibit such regional variability in their epidemiology, even in an area as limited as Belgium, as tinea capitis. Thus, anthropophilic tinea capitis is highly predominant in areas where new immigrants from Black Africa and North Africa have settled. By contrast, zoophilic tinea capitis is found largely in areas where the cat population is infected. Kerion often affects professions in which contact with infected livestock is involved. Prevention of tinea capitis thus has distinct regional features. Treatment, on the other hand, has a universal basis. [less ▲]

Venous insufficiency of the legs is a frequent and insidious disorder which, through its consequences' cascade, lead to some cutaneous microangiopathy with relative ischemia. Chronic leg ulcer is the late issue of the process accompanied by varied medical and socio-economic aspects. The pathogeny of the cutaneous lesions is directly related to alterations in hemorrheology and leukocyte adhesion inside capillaries. Elastic contention and some venotropic drugs exert preventive effects on the development of leg ulcers. They also bring some therapeutic improvement of the symptoms of leg heaviness. [less ▲]

The subcorneal pustular dermatosis of Sneddon and Wilkinson belongs to the heterogeneous group of neutrophilic dermatosis. This unique disorder is characterized by a superficial pustular eruption. The pustules are flaccid and aseptic. They develop predominantly on the trunk and in the groins, axillae and submammary areas. This disease is benign and chronic. However, it can be associated with some other conditions such as lymphoproliferative and myeloproliferative diseases. Dapsone is the treatment of choice to control the skin manifestations. [less ▲]

Ashiness describes a common physiological skin condition that may develop in people with dark skin complexion. Environmental influences, particularly cold and dry weather, seem obvious. This condition has seldom been studied so far. In the present study, skin ashiness was assessed in 37 black African women by means of colorimetric assessments and xerosis ratings. Colour changes were measured by the parameters a* and the individual typology angle ITA degrees. Xerosis was assessed by visual inspection, the ultraviolet light-enhanced visualization (ULEV) method, and the cyanoacrylate skin surface stripping (CSSS) method. The assessments were performed on ashy skin of the legs and on the normal looking forehead during the winter season. Ashy skin was lighter but not erythematous. The ITA-revealed colour changes were correlated with xerosis severity as assessed by dry dermoscopy and by the ULEV and CSSS methods. In conclusion, ashiness due to skin weathering does not appear to be related to mild inflammation. It corresponds to a peculiar type of xerosis with reduction in Fresnel reflection by the stratum corneum. [less ▲]
