Introdução: A hanseníase pode acometer a pele e o sistema nervoso periférico podendo levar a graves deformidades. É causada pelo Mycobacterium leprae, bacilo álcool-ácido resistente, parasita exclusivamente intracelular. Atualmente, a hanseníase é classificada em dois grandes grupos: paucibacilar (menos de cinco lesões) e multibacilar (mais de cinco lesões). É um problema de saúde pública, estando o Brasil entre os países de maior endemicidade no mundo. A morbidade dessa doença milenar se deve ao fato de causar incapacidades, por vezes irreversíveis, além do estigma que a acompanha, levando ao comprometimento da qualidade de vida. Vários trabalhos têm sido realizados a respeito da qualidade de vida em doenças dermatológicas, como psoríase, dermatite atópica, acne, herpes genital, hanseníase, no sentido de se tentar avaliar o grau de comprometimento do bem-estar físico, psicossocial e de atividades da rotina diária, assim como se tentar melhorar a relação médico-paciente e das ações de saúde, com o intuito de se minimizar os problemas decorrentes de cada enfermidade. Objetivo: avaliar o comprometimento da qualidade de vida nos pacientes do grupo paucibacilar de hanseníase em tratamento ambulatorial. Métodos: aplicação dos questionários Dermatology Life Quality Index e Short Form-36. O Dermatology Life Quality Index é um questionário específico para a dermatologia e é constituído de 10 questões...

Os problemas dermatológicos afetam aproximadamente um terço da população em algum momento da sua vida e, em aproximadamente 10 a 15% de todas as consultas médicas, a queixa principal deve-se a um problema dermatológico. A despeito desta importância, diversos estudos têm demonstrado deficiências no ensino de dermatologia nos cursos de graduação em medicina. Os sistemas de educação a distância baseados na internet representam uma das alternativas para corrigir esta deficiência e oferecer um maior contato do estudante de medicina com a especialidade. Considerando este cenário, o objetivo deste estudo foi desenvolver um programa de educação a distância em dermatologia para estudantes de graduação em medicina e avaliar o impacto deste mecanismo de ensino no aprendizado dos alunos. Foi realizado um estudo prospectivo incluindo estudantes do segundo ano da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Tecnologia e Ciências de Salvador Bahia Brasil. Os 44 alunos selecionados foram divididos em dois grupos; o grupo que participou de atividades presenciais apenas e o grupo que participou das atividades presenciais associado ao curso de educação a distância (curso híbrido). Todos os alunos foram submetidos a uma avaliação pré e pós curso e o desempenho foi comparado entre os dois grupos. Os estudantes que participaram do curso híbrido apresentaram escores pós-teste superiores (8...

FUNDAMENTOS: Alguns sintomas presentes nos pacientes com melanoma estão diretamente relacionados à tensão psicológica, o que reforça a necessidade de avaliar a qualidade de vida em todas as fases da doença. OBJETIVOS: Avaliar a qualidade de vida dos pacientes diagnosticados com melanoma por meio do questionário Fact-G. MÉTODOS: Estudo descritivo transversal que incluiu todos os pacientes em seguimento no serviço de dermatologia do Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre entre julho e dezembro de 2006. RESULTADOS: Sessenta pacientes foram incluídos. A idade média foi de 55,6 anos. O nível de escolaridade até primeiro grau foi correlacionado a escores mais baixos no Fact-G. Os pacientes com história familiar apresentaram maiores escores de QoL em três das quatro categorias avaliadas: bem-estar físico, emocional e funcional (P < 0,01). Pacientes casados mostraram melhor qualidade de vida (82,42) que os solteiros (70,28; P < 0,01). Os pacientes com metástase obtiveram uma menor pontuação no questionário no domínio bem-estar funcional. CONCLUSÕES: Os fatores relacionados ao tumor, assim como o sexo, a idade e a situação de emprego, não foram preditores de qualidade de vida. Pacientes com metástases apresentaram pior qualidade de vida no domínio bem-estar funcional. Pacientes casados têm mais conforto e apoio emocional para lidar com o diagnóstico do tumor. Os pacientes com história familiar de melanoma tiveram melhor qualidade de vida e os com baixa escolaridade...

BACKGROUND: In the pre-microbiological era, it was widely accepted that diseases, today known to be infectious, were hereditary. With the discovery of microorganisms and their role in the pathogenesis of several diseases, it was suggested that exposure to the pathogen was enough to explain infection. Nowadays, it is clear that infection is the result of a complex interplay between pathogen and host, therefore dependant on the genetic make-up of the two organisms. Dermatology offers several examples of infectious diseases in different stages of understanding of their molecular basis. In this review, we summarize the main advances towards dissecting the genetic component controlling human susceptibility to infectious diseases of interest in dermatology. Widely investigated diseases such as leprosy and leishmaniasis are discussed from the genetic perspective of both host and pathogen. Others, such as rare mycobacterioses, fungal infections and syphilis, are presented as good opportunities for research in the field of genetics of infection.

BACKGROUND: Sepsis is a common cause of morbidity and mortality among hospitalized patients. The prevalence of this condition has increased significantly in different parts of the world. Patients admitted to dermatology wards often have severe loss of skin barrier and use systemic corticosteroids, which favor the development of sepsis. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the prevalence of sepsis among patients admitted to a dermatology ward compared to that among patients admitted to an internal medicine ward. METHODS: It is a cross-sectional, observational, comparative study that was conducted at Hospital Santa Casa de Belo Horizonte. Data were collected from all patients admitted to four hospital beds at the dermatology and internal medicine wards between July 2008 and July 2009. Medical records were analyzed for the occurrence of sepsis, dermatologic diagnoses, comorbidities, types of pathogens and most commonly used antibiotics. RESULTS: We analyzed 185 medical records. The prevalence of sepsis was 7.6% among patients admitted to the dermatology ward and 2.2% (p = 0.10) among those admitted to the internal medicine ward. Patients with comorbidities, diabetes mellitus and cancer did not show a higher incidence of sepsis. The main agent found was Staphylococcus aureus...

The history of women in medicine has been marked by many challenges and achievements. Although the role of women in the "art of healing" can be traced back many centuries, only males are traditionally highlighted in history. Across antiquity, access to medical education was denied to females. Dermatology is a medical specialty in which women displayed particular skill and proficiency. Gradually, determination and competence allowed women to lay claim in an essentially male-dominated world. This article presents a brief review of the performance, progress and achievements of women in the history of medicine and dermatology.

Programmatic changes for the dermatology residency program at The University of Texas Medical Branch were first introduced in 2005, with the faculty goal incorporating formal dermatology research projects into the 3-year postgraduate training period. This curriculum initially developed as a recommendation for voluntary scholarly project activity by residents, but it evolved into a program requirement for all residents in 2009. Departmental support for this activity includes assignment of a faculty mentor with similar interest about the research topic, financial support from the department for needed supplies, materials, and statistical consultation with the Office of Biostatistics for study design and data analysis, a 2-week elective that provides protected time from clinical activities for the purpose of preparing research for publication and submission to a peer-reviewed medical journal, and a departmental award in recognition for the best resident scholarly project each year. Since the inception of this program, five classes have graduated a total of 16 residents. Ten residents submitted their research studies for peer review and published their scholarly projects in seven dermatology journals through the current academic year. These articles included three prospective investigations...

The need for understanding and reflecting on evidence-based dermatology (EBD) has never been greater given the exponential growth of new external evidence to inform clinical practice. Like any other branch of medicine, dermatologists need to acquire new skills in constructing answerable questions, efficiently searching electronic bibliographic databases, and critically appraising different types of studies. Secondary summaries of evidence in the form of systematic reviews (SR), that is, reviews that are conducted in a systematic, unbiased and explicit manner, reside at the top of the evidence hierarchy, because they are less prone to bias than traditional expert reviews. In addition to providing summaries of the best external evidence, systematic reviews and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are also powerful ways of identifying research gaps and ultimately setting the agenda of future clinical research in dermatology. But like any paradigm, EBD can have its limitations. Wrong application, misuse and overuse of EBD can have serious consequences. For example, mindless pooling together of data from dissimilar studies in a meta-analysis may render it a form of reductionism that does not make any sense. Similarly, even highly protocolised study designs such as SRs and RCTs are still susceptible to some degree of dishonesty and bias. Over-reliance on randomized controlled trials (RCT) may be inappropriate...

peer-reviewed; Working in dermatology, one quickly learns that applying a simple medical model approach of diagnosis and treatment is neither suitable nor sufficient. In some patients the dermatological disease makes the patient suffer so much that psychological support is clearly needed and for others their skin condition does not respond to appropriate treatment so the patient requires ongoing support for their condition. Furthermore, some patients have primary psychiatric disorders - such as delusional parasitosis (DP) - but do not want or will not consult psychiatrists (Lyell 1983). These patients thus need psychologically adapted care in dermatology. During my training in Dermatology, I have developed a special interest in studying the impact on quality of life of chronic dermatoses like atopic eczema and psoriasis. So, this thesis focuses on the effects of atopic dermatitis on quality of life and on patients‘ knowledge, expectations and fears about their skin conditions. I also have included DP, a psychiatric illness that has significant morbidity but which presents to dermatologists and poses unique difficulties, Finally as part of evaluating how we should respond to the psychological challenges seen in our patients, I studied the use of an assessment and counselling service provided by a clinical psychologist in the dermatological outpatient setting.

AbstractBACKGROUND:Some research indicates that physicians do not dominate the expected dermatological content for the proper exercise of the profession. This fact compromises their diagnostic and therapeutic performance, generating unnecessary costs.OBJECTIVE:The aim of this study was to evaluate the relevance of Dermatology and the knowledge acquired in the specialty during the undergraduate course in clinical practice of graduates at the State University of Campinas Medical School (FCM/UNICAMP).METHOD:A questionnaire with 22 closed questions and two open ones was electronically sent to physicians who had graduated more than 10 years ago and others for less than 10 years. In the first group, physicians were trained by the same curriculum and in the second group there were subjects trained by the old and the new curriculum.RESULTS:Of the 126 respondents, 83% had completed a specialization course. Among all, 82% did not study dermatology after graduation. The majority considered that Dermatology has high relevance in clinical practice, regardless of the group. There was a statistically significant difference between non-dermatologist doctors graduated for more than 10 years and those graduated for less than 10 years regarding confidence about lesion diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Skin diseases cause negative impact on the emotional state, social relationships and daily activities, due to the stigma caused by the appearance of the lesions. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess the quality of life of pediatric patients with skin diseases attending a dermatology service, compare the scores obtained among the dermatoses found in the sample and associate them to the variables, in addition to observing how the skin disease specifically affects quality of life. METHODS: Cross-sectional study, with patients between 5 and 16 years attending the Dermatology Service of the University of Health Sciences of Porto Alegre, Brazil, between July 2010 and February 2011. The data collection instruments were the Children's Dermatology Life Quality Index questionnaire and the AUEQI questionnaire. RESULTS: A total of 161 patients were interviewed, with mean age of 9,66 years. The main dermatoses were atopic dermatitis (29.8%), warts (13%) and molluscum contagiosum (7.5%). Chronic diseases (73.9%) were the most prevalent. The overall mean Children's Dermatology Life Quality Index score was 5.01 for chronic dermatoses and 2.07 for acute illnesses, indicating a compromised quality of life among chronically ill patients. The comparison between the scores obtained with the AUEQI scale and the Children's Dermatology Life Quality Index scores indicates that the overall quality of life is less affected than the specific quality of life related to the dermatosis. CONCLUSIONS: The data presented reinforce how important it is that the patients...
