Demodicidosis: an uncommon erythema after cranio-maxillofacial surgery - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Luebbers, Heinz-Theo; Lanzer, Martin; Graetz, Klaus W; Kruse, Astrid L (2013). Demodicidosis: an uncommon erythema after cranio-maxillofacial surgery. British Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, 51(8):e267-8.

Abstract

Demodex mites are commonly found in the healthy population, but the pathogenesis of demodicidosis has still not been clarified, though it is usually found in cases of immune deficiency. A 45-year-old man presented with an unusual outbreak of erythema and swelling 6 months after resection and chemoradiotherapy for a squamous cell carcinoma of the anterior floor of the mouth. The cheek was biopsied and histological examination showed demodicidosis. In cases of erythema with a normal blood cell count and no history of allergy, particularly in patients with reduced immunity, demodicidosis should be considered as a diagnosis and should be confirmed by examination of a biopsy specimen.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
