The translation here submitted to the public is the second translation of this work into English, it having before this been rendered by Dr. When it was proposed to reprint this translation, there was a strong protest made against the old version on the ground of its being to some degree inexact, and on account of its omitting not only the initials of the provers but besides this, also a great number of symptoms. These complaints have been proved well founded, especially with respect to the latter part of the work. We have taken a hundred symptoms at random here and there and compared them with the original, with the following results : in Alumina 555-655 we found only the omission of a part of symptom 556 and a partial omission and joining together of symptoms 617 and 618. So also in Graphites there is no omission except 53 (a repetition) in the first hundred, nor any other until we reach 200, 201 and 202 which are omitted.

flavoxate 200 mg otc

A midbasilar artery occlusion could cause ataxia of limbs by involving pontine nuclei; paralysis of the face buy cheap flavoxate 200mg line, arm cheap flavoxate 200mg line, and leg by involving corticospinal tracts; and impairment of facial sensation by involvement of fifth nerve nucleus cheap 200mg flavoxate. Occlusion of the entire middle cerebral artery results in contralateral hemiplegia, hemianesthesia, and homonymous hemianopsia. When only a penetrating branch of the middle cerebral artery is affected, the syndrome of pure motor hemiplegia is produced, as the infarct involves only the pos- terior limb of the internal capsule, involving only motor fibers to the face, arm, and leg (lacunar infarct). A 20-year-old woman complains of skin problems and is noted to have erythematous papules on her face with blackheads (open comedones) and whiteheads (closed comedones). She is prescribed a topical tretinoin (Retin-A), but without a totally acceptable result. Systemically administered isotretinoin therapy cannot be considered unless concomitant contraceptive therapy is provided c. Antimicrobial therapy is of no value since bacteria are not part of the patho- genesis of the process d. Isotretinoin is without important side effects as long as it is not used in sexually active women 392. A 22-year-old male presents with a 6-month history of a red, nonpru- ritic rash over the trunk, scalp, elbows, and knees. These eruptions are more likely to occur during stressful periods and have occurred at sites of skin injury. The rash is unrelated to stress 215 Copyright © 2004 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. A 25-year-old complains of fever and myalgias for 5 days and now has developed a macular rash over his palms and soles with some petechial lesions. The patient recently returned from a summer camping trip in the Great Smoky Mountains. Papules and vesicles are noted in a bandlike pattern, with slight ooz- ing from some lesions. A 35-year-old woman develops an itchy rash over her back, legs, and trunk several hours after swimming in a lake. A 30-year-old black female has had a history of cough, and a chest x-ray shows bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy. There is swelling and bleeding of gums around the patient’s teeth as well as tenderness around a hematoma of the calf. A 50-year-old woman develops pink macules and papules on her hands and forearms in association with a sore throat. A 25-year-old female with blonde hair and fair complexion com- plains of a mole on her upper back. The lesion is 6 mm in diameter, darkly pigmented, and asymmetric, with a very irregular border (see photo). A 39-year-old male with a prior history of myocardial infarction com- plains of yellow bumps on his elbows and buttocks. A 15-year-old girl complains of a low-grade fever, malaise, conjunc- tivitis, coryza, and cough. After this prodromal phase, a rash of discrete pink macules begins on her face and extends to her hands and feet. In the next 2 weeks she developed several smaller oval pink lesions with a fine collarette of scale. They seem to run in the body folds and mainly involve the trunk, although a few are on the upper arms and thighs. A 45-year-old man with Parkinson’s disease has macular areas of ery- thema and scaling behind the ears and on the scalp, eyebrows, glabella, nasolabial folds, and central chest. On examination, he has many circular, lighter macules with a barely visible scale that coalesce into larger areas. A 33-year-old fair-skinned woman has telangiectasias of the cheeks and nose along with red papules and occasional pustules. A 22-year-old man from New Jersey suddenly develops a pruritic vesicular rash on his arms, hands, and face. A 25-year-old postal worker presents with a pruritic, nonpainful skin lesion on the dorsum of his hand. On exam, the lesion has a black, necrotic cen- ter and is associated with swelling. The lesion is ecthyma gangrenosum, and blood cultures will be positive for Pseudomonas aeruginosa b. A skin biopsy should be performed and Gram stain examined for gram-positive rods c. Which of the following information obtained from history and physical exam sug- gests that the patient has chickenpox and not smallpox? After 2 weeks, the site of inoculation fails to heal and the lesion progresses in size with central necrosis and dark eschars. This is a smallpox vaccine complication called vaccinia necrosum; the treat- ment of choice is vaccinia immune globulin b. No evaluation for underlying disease process is necessary Dermatology Answers 391. Intralesional triamcinolone is effective for occasional cystic lesions and does not cause systemic side effects. Anti- microbial therapy is of value, in part due to its suppressive effect on Propioni- bacterium acnes. Its characteristic features include sharply bordered, often round papules or plaques with silver scale, usually located on the knees, elbows, and scalp. Stress, certain medications such as lithium, and skin injury commonly exacerbate the disease. In the differential of psoriasis is lichen planus (polygonal pruritic purple papules with lacy mucous membrane lesions), pityriasis rosea (herald patch occurs first, on trunk in Christmas tree pat- tern), and dermatophytes (usually less well demarcated, affecting skin, hair, and nails). Secondary syphilis could present with a macular rash in the same distribution, but the associated symptoms would be atypical. The process is related to direct irritation of the 223 Copyright © 2004 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Herpes simplex produces grouped vesicles, but they are painful and also unlikely to occur around the wrist. Seborrheic dermatitis presents as red, scaly lesions over a circular area with lesions developing in the nasolabial folds, scalp, and retroauricular areas. Folliculitis caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa can cause a rash, often after exposure to hot tubs. The lesions would not be as diffuse, with a line of demarcation depending on the water level. Erythema multi- forme produces target-like lesions and oral blisters often secondary to med- ications. Erythema chronicum migrans usually presents with a large, solitary annular lesion. Agents such as aspirin or alcohol, which aggravate cutaneous vasodilation, are contraindi- cated. Glucocorticoids play a minimal role in management of urticaria unless the process is severe and unremitting.
