An alternative approach employs temporary occlusion of the tube lumen, using one of several methods Phakic eyes are particularly challenging because the (Fig. Most of these involve an external ligature, natural tendency to avoid the iris and lens can leave the either with or without a removable suture stent.

Discussion Focal interface changes with characteristic small eosinophilic globular deposits seen in the papillary dermis often with scattered dermal melanophages correctly identify this as lichen amyloidosis asthma treatment in toddlers . Irregular epidermal acanthosis with some compressed collagen and scattered dermal melanophages in the papillary dermis can also be seen in chronic dermatitis but the characteristic eosinophilic globules seen in this biopsy are not noted in a chronic and lichenified dermatitis renal asthma definition . Melanin pigment incontinence can serve as a subtle clue and may draw one’s attention to brittle asthma definition the often faintly staining eosinophilic globules asthma triggers . Systemic amyloidosis with cutaneous involvement typically demonstrates pale eosinophilic deposition throughout the dermis but frequently around blood vessels and sometimes outlining adipocytes. Multiple 246 stains are positive in amyloidosis including crystal violet, Congo red, Thioflavin T, cotton dyes (Pagoda Red) and acid-orcein Giemsa. These superficial deposits in cutaneous amyloid may also stain with keratin stains, which will not highlight systemic forms of amyloid. Folliculotropic T-cell lymphoma (Incorrect) Although there is a perifollicular lymphoid infiltrate, there are no interface changes of the follicular epithelium and there are no cytologic atypical lymphocytes for cutaneous lymphoma. Secondary syphilis (Incorrect) Secondary syphilis of the scalp causing alopecia shows similar findings as cutaneous lesions with an interface dermatitis and plasma cells within the infiltrate. Seborrheic dermatitis (Incorrect) Seborrheic dermatitis is either a spongiotic dermatitis or psoriasiform dermatitis and does not show follicular interface changes. Question A biopsy for direct immunofluorescence would typically show what features IgG staining along the dermal epidermal junction (Incorrect) Deposition of immunoglobulins particularly IgG and IgM are seen in 50-90% of cases of lupus erythematous. Linear homogeneous staining of C3 along the interfollicular epidermal basement membrane and dermo-epidermal junction (Incorrect) Deposition of linear, homogeneous of C3 along the basement membrane zone is seen in bullous pemphigoid. Linear IgA along the follicular basement membrane (Incorrect) Deposition of linear IgA just along the follicular basement zone is non-diagnostic. No staining on direct immunofluorescence (Incorrect) Negative staining is usually not seen in lichen planopilaris except in lesions of long standing where the inflammatory component is lost and end staging cicatricial alopecia is found. The diagnosis can be made on both vertically and horizontally sectioned specimens, although the latter allow examination of a greater number of hair follicles. Biopsy from the involved skin where there is erythema and follicular plugging increases the specificity for the diagnosis as opposed to biopsies taken from completely scarred or alopecic skin. A case series of 29 patients with lichen planopilaris: the Cleveland Clinic Foundation experience on evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. Candidiasis (Incorrect) Candidiasis typically is spongiotic dermatitis with some accumulation of neutrophils in the stratum corneum. The unique changes seen in this biopsy of retention of keratohyaline granules and thickened basophilic stratum corneum is not seen. Occasional accumulation of coccobacilli may be found in the stratum corneum on gram stain. Granular parakeratosis (Correct) the thickened basophilic parakeratotic layer with characteristic retention of keratohyaline granules makes this the correct answer. Inverse psoriasis (Incorrect) Although some lesions of granular parakeratosis have a “psoriasiform acanthosis” the accumulation of neutrophils typically seen in psoriasis are not present. The unique changes seen in this biopsy of retention of keratohyaline granules and thickened basophilic stratum corneum are not seen in psoriasis. Irritant/contact dermatitis (Incorrect) Typically both are spongiotic dermatitis with a perivascular infiltrate. The unique changes seen in this biopsy of retention of keratohyaline granules and thickened basophilic stratum corneum are not seen in an irritant or contact dermatitis. Absence of lamellar granules and accumulation of dense core granules (Incorrect) these are the electron microscopy findings seen in Harlequin fetus. Defect in crosslinkage of locrin and involucrin and formation of cornified cell layer (Incorrect) this defect is seen in lamellar ichthyosis. Defect in the processing of profilaggrin to filaggrin in keratinocytes (Correct) this is the proposed etiology of granular parakeratosis. Deficiency of steroid sulfatase (Incorrect) this defect is seen in x-linked ichthyosis. Typical clinical diagnoses include inverse psoriasis, intertrigo, erythrasma and contact or irritant dermatitis. Although some lesions of granular parakeratosis have a “psoriasiform acanthosis” the accumulation of neutrophils typically seen in psoriasis are not present. The unique changes seen in this biopsy of retention of keratohyaline granules and thickened basophilic stratum corneum are not seen in psoriasis nor in dermatitis. The defect in maturation of profilaggrin to filaggrin is thought to be the cause of this distinct and recognizable entity. Granular parakeratosis: pathologic and clinical correlation of 18 cases of granular parakeratosis. The patient presents with a two-month history of a papulovesicular eruption on the trunk and extremities. Direct immunofluorescence (Correct) Direct immunofluorescence would show granular deposits of IgG, IgM, IgA, and C3 along the dermoepidermal junction. All of the above (Correct) Question You are provided with a direct immunofluorescence which shows granular deposits of IgG, IgM, IgA, and C3 along the dermoepidermal junction. About 60% of cases show a granular pattern of deposits while 40% have a linear pattern. The eruption appears as large and tense or small and clustered clear to hemorrhagic vesicles or bulla arising on normal or inflamed skin. Lesions resolve, leaving behind hypopigmented, or less often, hyperpigmented macules without scarring. Sun exposed skin of the upper trunk, neck, supraclavicular region, axillary folds, and proximal extremities is most often affected. Mucous membranes, including nasal, oral, and vulvar, are also frequently involved. If there is a linear pattern of immunoglobulin deposition, immunoelectron microscopy should be done to demonstrate the immune reactants below the basal lamina. Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus: differential diagnosis with dermatitis herpetiformis. The rash is intermittent and recurring and resolves spontaneously, lasting only one to several days. Question the best diagnosis is: A) Sweet syndrome (Incorrect) Pronounced papillary dermal edema is a classical feature of Sweet’s syndrome. In addition, in Sweet’s syndrome, the dermal neutrophilic infiltrate is usually much more dense. B) Urticarial vasculitis (Incorrect) the presence of leukocytoclastic vasculitis is the hallmark feature in well-developed urticarial vasculitis. Early lesions may be more challenging, but show mild perivascular neutrophils with leukocytoclasia, as well as eosinophils, and subtle leukocytoclastic vasculitis with evidence of vascular damage, even if only focal. C) Adult-onset Still’s disease (Correct) A variety of cutaneous eruptions can occur in adult onset Still’s disease, most showing nonspecific subtle microscopic features including a mild superficial perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate with occasional scattered neutrophils. Persistent pruritic papules and plaques have a more characteristic histology with dyskeratosis confined to the upper layers of the epidermis, a sparse superficial dermal infiltrate with scattered neutrophils, and often an increase in dermal mucin deposition. Urticarial lesions of adult-onset Still’s disease usually show mild perivascular and interstitial superficial dermal neutrophilic inflammation without significant dermal edema, eosinophils, or vasculitis. These latter features, of no dermal edema, eosinophils, or vasculitis, are the main findings that allow distinction from classical urticaria or urticarial vasculitis. D) Interstitial granulomatous dermatitis (palisading neutrophilic granulomatous dermatitis) (Incorrect) Interstitial granulomatous dermatitis is often associated with rheumatoid arthritis, and can show variable histological patterns, including interstitial and perivascular inflammatory infiltrates, predominately consisting of neutrophils, as well as neutrophilic debris, histiocytes, lymphocytes, and some eosinophils. E) Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus (Incorrect) In addition to a subepidermal blister in bullous systemic lupus erythematosus, there is a dense inflammatory infiltrate in the superficial dermis, predominately consisting of neutrophils, as well as lymphocytes and some eosinophils. However, other cutaneous eruptions have been described in association with adult-onset Still’s disease, the most common being persistent pruritic papules and plaques with scale and linear pigmentation, reported to occur, over time, in 65% of patients with the disease. Additional cutaneous manifestations seen in adult-onset Still’s disease include vesiculopustules on the hands and feet, acne-like lesions, purpura, persistent generalized erythema, generalized peau d’ orange-like lesions with diffuse cutaneous mucinosis, intermittent and recurrent urticaria-like eruption with non-pruritic erythematous macules or slightly elevated plaques, and a prurigo pigmentosa-like eruption. Persistent pruritic papules and plaques with scale and linear pigmentation (Correct) B. Evanescent non-pruritic non-scaly salmon-colored morbilliform eruption (Correct) C.

The mountainous slopes brought with it the downslope wash of most buildings following their abandonment and the num ber of destruction assemblages is surprisingly low asthmatic bronchitis with acute exacerbation . Consequently asthma treatment using fish , almost all of the finds derive from earth fills that were placed in order to new asthma treatment 2013 bridge between topo graphical levels asthma fever . This fact leaves us with the former tool: Access analysis based on the architecture. Many more buildings were exca vated over the years in and around Jerusalem; we excluded those whose full plan was unclear or that were built on an ad hoc basis. This space teaches most about daily conduct, the Introduction of the Open-Courtyard Building 215 social values, and the demarcation of private versus public spaces (Byrd 1994). Four types of buildings were defined based on recurring patterns that indicate shared perceptions: Four-Room Buildings, Inner-Courtyard Buildings, Long-Axis Buildings, and the Open-Courtyard Buildings (fig. Abu Shwan, Building 200 (according to: Baruch 2007, plan 1) (8) Ras Abu Ma’arof (according to: Seligman 1994, Plan 3); Inner-Courtyard Building: (9) ‘Alona (according to: Weksler-Bdolah 1997, fig 136) 10. The Long-Axis Buildings are built without a courtyard and are usually com posed of three broad rooms arranged one next to the other. The courtyards of the Four-Room Buildings and Inner-Courtyard Buildings are located inside the build ings themselves and are similar in size to all surrounding spaces. The location of the courtyard turns it into a hub that allows direct access to all of the building’s wings. In the Four-Room Building, the courtyard is nested within the building and is surrounded by three wings. A set of pillars serve in some cases to divide between the court yard and the spaces at its sides. The pillars had a cardinal impact on both the physical and sensory interactions taking place within the building. Regardless of their ethnic affiliation, the buildings share a unique syntax that shaped and ex pressed economic and social conduct within them (Faust and Bunimovitz 2003). In the Inner-Courtyard Building, separation between the courtyard and the surrounding spaces was achieved with fully built walls. Excavations at the site exposed a building in its entirety which the excavators described it as a Four Room House. An analysis, however, shows the main courtyard is actually located outside of the building, in a space that is shared with at least another building, and 4 thus it cannot be categorized as a Four-Room House. A smaller courtyard is lo cated inside the building, and it allows access to a set of rooms to its west and to its south. Another example of such a building was exposed at Beit HaKerem (Da vidovich et al. Here the courtyard is positioned in front of the other rooms and not in direct contact with all of them. Both examples show a very dif ferent concept of space usage and access, and they should not be considered as subtypes of the Four-Room Building. And it is the uniqueness of the courtyard and its relation to other components of the building that rightly drew Ruth Amiran and Immanuel Dunayevsky’s attention when they defined these buildings as a distinct type (Amiran and Dunayevsky 1958, 31). First, the courtyard is much larger than the inner courtyards that typifies all the other types of building, a fact which makes it probable that it was used for a 4. We wish to thank Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah for sharing with us unpublished data from the site. The positioning of the courtyard in the Open-Courtyard Building in front of the two wings turns it into an area that can serve an administrative, public func tion. Such action cannot be performed within the inner courtyard of the Four-Room Building or the Inner-Courtyard Building. To accomplish this task, the cart and the workers would have had to stay outside in the street, in the public space. In contrast, Tal has claimed that Open-Courtyard Buildings continue the tradition of the typical Canaanite Central Courtyard Building (Tal 2009, 107–9) and that there is not much of difference between the two types. In our opinion, if one evaluates the location and character of the courtyard in the two types of buildings, it becomes apparent that they are essentially different. As described above, the courtyard of the Open-Courtyard Buildings was a public arena; the courtyard of the Classic Canaanite buildings were positioned at the heart of the dwellings and were surrounded from all sides by rooms so that the courtyard was an area that was not only private but also offered an environment that was completely disconnected from any of the public spaces (Gadot and Ya sur-Landau 2006, 596). The typological division presented above, which is based on the location of courtyards within the building, allowed us to recognize a sequence in the degree of privacy the building offers its inhabitants. On one end of the continuum is the Long-Axis Buildings that have no courtyard and its rooms are built as a long chain where one room led to another and, creating spatial hierarchy in which the front 5 room can be shared by all while the back room is relatively segregated. The In ner-Courtyard Building and Four-Room Building are characterized by a sheltered courtyard that is accessible and visible only to the occupants of the building. While fully built walls serve to define segregated and private spaces in the Inner Courtyard Building, the separation into spaces in the Pillar Buildings is essentially symbolic, with no real physical separation. Finally, at the other end of the contin uum from the Long-Axis Building stands the Open-Courtyard Building type where the courtyard was much larger and more accessible by the public. This kind of floor fits better an administrative or civic function that De Groot and Amit have suggested for the buildings at Mamilla and Area E of the Southeastern Ridge. The size of the buildings identified with this type hints that they were not used as dwelling and they served as small warehouses positioned near the farmed lands. This was not a direct borrowing, and in the process of adoption the buildings were adapted by the local elite. Other traits, such as straight walls, carried less significance and were abandon when the buildings were set into the local environment. Finding such buildings at a site like Megiddo, a province capital built along Assyrian concepts (Peersman 2006, 81–86), should not be a surprise. But finding them in Jerusalem, which was not under direct As syrian rule, is not self-evident. The kingdom of Israel was depopulated and its relatively large territory was divided into three provinces. Judah, on the other hand, was turned into a vassal kingdom and its territory to the west was given to the Philistine kingdom of Ekron. While most scholars agree on the violent nature of Assyria’s military cam paigns, the nature of their rule in the century that followed their takeover is disputed. Some scholars claim the Assyrian policy was exploitative and left be hind a ruined country (Stager 1996; Faust and Weiss 2005; Faust 2011; 2015; Master 2014). According to this view, if there were regions that flourished during the seventh century, it was despite the Assyrian policy, not because of it. A dif ferent viewpoint, expressed by many other scholars, sees the Assyrians as developing and maintaining a web of economic cooperation that insured the flow of wealth and taxes (Na’aman 1995; Gittin 1995; Stern 2001; Finkelstein and Na’aman 2004; Thareani 2009; 2016, Lipschits Sergi and Koch 2011; Sapir-Hen, Gadot and Finkelstein 2014). Judah became part the imperial sphere already in the days of Ahaz and possi bly even before. Jerusalem—as the capital of the kingdom, the location of the main temple, and the seat of the ruling dynasty—must have been exposed to Assyrian cultural, economic, and political pressure. Assyrian in fluence can be identified in Judah’s economic and administrative systems (Katz 2008, 179–82; Lipschits, Sergi and Koch 2011, 5–41; Sapir-Hen et al. The Introduction of the Open-Courtyard Building 219 the Assyrian strategies were adapted to their geopolitical needs, in kingdoms that remained independent, the Assyrians developed a client-patron relationship with local elites (Thareni 2009, 186–89). In light of this understanding, the ap pearance of “foreign” material culture should be seen against the background of cultural negotiation that ensured the loyalty of local leaders. In Jerusalem, the Assyrian presence is seen mostly through the elite’s selective adoption of aspects of Assyrian culture (Aharoni 1964, 32–33; Matthiae 1964, 85–94; Romer 2005, 68–106; Steymans 2013, 12; Winderbaum 2012, 98–99). The introduction of the Open-Courtyard Buildings is an expression of this phe nomenon. The building’s plan offers a distinctly different mundane pattern of activities from those that are conducted in other households in Judah’s urban and rural landscape. This can be the result of a choice by local Judahites to adopt the Assyrian lifestyle, and, in cases where the buildings served for administrative rule, to adopt the Assyrian administrative system. Finally, the fact that the building continued to be used in the Persian period should be stressed. Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians but the rural sec tor surrounding the city partially recovered by the Persian period (Lipschits 2005, 372–78; 2011, 57–90; Gadot 2015). Two Open-Courtyard Buildings were excavated recently at a site located in the Beit-Shemesh hills (Kogen-Zehavi 2014, 120–33).

Allergy to Chemical Agents Applied Locally Allergic Stomatitis due to Acrylic the differential diagnosis includes denture Resin stomatitis and reactions to other allergens. Treatment consists of oral antihistamines and con True allergy of the oral mucosa to denture base struction of new dentures with fully polymerized material is very rare. Alternatively, traces of other allergenic substances absorbed within the denture base may be the cause of the allergic reactions. Allergic acrylic stomatitis is characterized by diffuse erythema, edema, and occasionally small vesicles and erosions, especially in areas of contact with the dentures (Figs. The patient complains of intense burning of the mouth and this reaction may extend to areas of the oral mucosa that are not in direct contact with the dentures. In localized reactions there is redness, edema, Allergic Stomatitis due to Eugenol and erosions that are covered with whitish Eugenol has many uses in dentistry as an antisep pseudomembranes (Fig. The skin patch test is usually sitized patients it may cause generalized allergic positive. Periodontal Diseases Gingivitis An early and common feature is gingival bleeding, even after mild local stimulation. Inflammation is Gingivitis is an inflammatory disease of the gin mainly located at the marginal gingiva and the giva caused by dental microbial plaque. Factors interdental papillae without development of that contribute to the accumulation of plaque are periodontal pockets (Fig. However, if gingi poor oral hygiene, faulty restorations, tooth mal val hyperplasia is severe, pseudopockets may be position, calculus, food impaction, mouth breath formed. In addition, several systemic disorders, occasionally acute or subacute forms may occur. If such as endocrine diseases, immune deficiencies, chronic gingivitis is not treated, it frequently nutritional disturbances, and drugs, are known to evolves into periodontitis. Good oral hygiene, complete removal of calculus from the teeth, and repair of faulty is related to local factors and the host resistance.

The teeth involved are tender to percussion root planing, surgical procedures, and, in certain and occasionally mobile. Juvenile Periodontitis the differential diagnosis includes dental abscess, gingival cyst of adults, palatine papilla cyst, naso Juvenile periodontitis is an inflammatory gingival labial cyst, and actinomycosis. Although the exact cause remains obscure, recent evidence suggests that be helpful. Antibiotics during the acute phase and host response play important roles in the patho periodontal treatment. Based on clinical, radiographic, microbiologic, and immunologic criteria, juvenile periodontitis is classified into two forms: localized juvenile periodontitis, which clinically is characterized by severe periodontal pocket formation and alveolar bone loss with mild or moderate inflammation localized mainly in the periodontal tissues of the permanent incisors and first molars, and generalized juvenile periodontitis, which is clini cally characterized by generalized periodontal pockets and alveolar bone loss that involves almost all teeth along with gingival inflammation (Fig. Periodontal Diseases Periodontal Fistula Plasma Cell Gingivitis Periodontal fistula forms when pus bores through Plasma cell gingivitis is a unique disorder that the gingival tissues and drains an underlying histopathologically is characterized by a dense periodontal abscess.
