A Case Report of Calcifying Epithelioma of Malherbe (Pilomatrixoma) Mimicking Breast Carcinoma in Male Patient  [PDF]
Maria Marta Martins, Adrienne Pratti Lucarelli, José Mendes Aldrighi, Aline Forattini
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2014.35063
Abstract:

Pilomatricoma or calcifying epithelioma of Malherbe is a rare benign tumor of the skin and/or the subcutaneous tissue originating from the hair matrix. It is usually seen in children and adolescents, however a smaller second peak of onset is seen in the elderly. The head, neck, or upper extremities are the most common anatomical sites of pilomatricomas, being less frequently seen on the trunk and lower extremities, and very rarely have they been diagnosed in the breast. Its malignant counterpart, pilomatrix carcinoma, is rare and found more often in men. Due to its incapacity of regression, treatment consists of surgical excision. We present the case of a man with a pilomatrixoma of the breast, presenting as ACR BI-RADS 4, and we review the literature regarding pilomatrixomas.

ADRB2, ADRB3, BDKRB2 and MTNR1B Genes Related to Body fat Modulation and Its Interaction with Physical Activity and Blood Pressure  [PDF]
Aline Marcadenti
Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojemd.2015.57012
Abstract: Hypertension (HTN) is the risk factor that most contributes to mortality rates in the world, followed by physical inactivity and obesity. Despite the influence of genetic factors on the genesis of HTN, blood pressure levels are strongly influenced by environmental factors such as physical inactivity and overweight, characterizing it as a polygenic disease. Genetic components and environmental factors such as physical exercise may modulate the phenotype of individuals predisposed to medical conditions such as HTN, independently of modifiable factors such as increased levels of adiposity; however, studies have shown that polymorphic forms detected in genes involved in the mechanisms of blood pressure regulation and also related to body fat modulation may interact with physical activity levels and HTN. The aim of this article is to review the interactions between polymorphisms in ADRB2, ADRB3, BDKRB2 and MTNR1B genes, physical activity and blood pressure.
O Brasil e a medicina tropical
Forattini,Oswaldo Paulo;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1997, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101997000200002
Abstract: endemic infectious diseases still constitute a threat to latin american countries. in view of this, research on tropical medicine should be encouraged, particularly in countries like brazil where this kind of scientific investigacion was historically highly early in this century. it is suggested that more resources should be made available to stimulate such studies and the publication in english, portuguese and spanish.
Paridade e desenvolvimento ovariano de Anopheles albitarsis l.s. em área de agroecossistema irrigado
Kakitani,Iná; Forattini,Oswaldo Paulo;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89102000000100007
Abstract: introduction: to determine the parity, ovarian development and survival rates of anopheles albitarsis species, in order to estimate the potential of malaria transmission. methods: two populations of anopheles albitarsis a and b in an experimental farm of s. paulo state, brazil were captured during the crepuscular sunset, between 5pm and 8pm, using shannon traps. dissections were performed using polovodova's technique, and the evaluation of follicular development was according to christophers and mer's criterion. the vercruysse method was used to estimate daily survival and we applied davidson method to determine the duration of the gonotrophic cycle. results: a total of 2,612 specimens was dissected, of these, 237 of population a and 2,375 of population b. the daily survival rates were 0.5339±0.047 and 0.5566±0.015, respectively, for the populations a and b. the duration of the gonotrophic cycle for population a was 1,990 days and for population b 2,046 days. conclusions: the results help to estimate the malaria transmission potential in the region.
A tríade da publica??o científica
Forattini,Oswaldo Paulo;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101996000100002
Abstract: considerations are made about the competitiveness, impactedness and internationality as characters required for the scientific publications evaluation in brazil. the relative merits of this judgement system is appraised in the face of the third world realities.
Qualidade de vida e meio urbano: a cidade de S?o Paulo, Brasil
Forattini,Oswaldo Paulo;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1991, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101991000200001
Abstract: the concept of the quality of life is presented: its main aspects and the possibilities of this assessment and measurement are presented. community and individual features arc described and related to causal factors. s. paulo city, brazil, is seen to be an urban environment with quality of life problems on which some considerations are offered.
Mosquitos Culicidae como vetores emergentes de infec??es
Forattini,Oswaldo Paulo;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1998, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101998000600001
Abstract: a review is presented of the relationships between the so-called emerging infectious diseases and what may be defined as emerging vectors. these include not only those that have recently appeared but also those that present remarkable behavioral changes. specific factors leading to that emergence can be associated with the powerful human influence on the environment. so the man-made, i.e. anthropic environment, exercises a selective pressure inducing vector populations to adapt to new circumstances. these may arise from ecological, environmental, or demographic factors that increase contact with the new vector. with this in mind, data on anomalous culicidae breeding places in the americas are reported. an interpretation of these findings is offered in the light of epidemiological surveillance. the question is whether vector emergence or re-emergence may constitute an epidemiological problem. thus it is suggested that plane for all inclusive surveillance be prepared.
Biogeografia, origem e distribui??o da domicilia??o de triatomíneos no Brasil
Forattini,Oswaldo Paulo;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89102006000700004
Abstract: an association is established between the brazilian geographical pattern of the domiciliarity of the triatominae bugs and open lands characterized by natural savanna vegetation or artificial, man-made landscapes. the brazilian open lands involved are the "caatingas'' and "cerrados", both wholly included in brazilian territory, while the mixed southern subtropical prairies belong to systems extending bevond national boundary lines. the other open lands are anthropic-lands opened mainly by the destruction of primitive forests of the tropical atlantic system. attempts were made to subject the four synanthropic species of epidemiological importance to model paleoecologic refuges and endemic centers. triatoma sordida, triatoma brasiliensis, and triatoma pseudomaculata seem to have their endemic centers in the "cerrados" and "caatinga", while the panstrongylus megistus may have originated in the tropical atlantic forest system. the triatoma infestans, however, seem to have originated in bolivia, then were spread to large dispersal regions by man. thus it can be assumed that domiciliarity is arrived at through an opportunistic mechanism stimulated by shelter and food availability factors. once established, domiciliarity favors the species survival and dispersal, and this is of particular interest to control and surveillance programs because it increases the probability of the triatominae's success in synanthropic specialization. the present intense anthropic activities in the amazonian system will lead to even greater expansion into the open lands; consequently, a triatominae domiciliarity spread can be expected, due to either autochthonous or man-introduced populations. a public health problem will then arise in a region where it has, heretofore, been unknown.
A língua franca da ciência
Forattini,Oswaldo Paulo;
Revista de Saúde Pública , 1997, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89101997000100002
Abstract: there is a trend, with a view to achieving greater scientific visibility and international projection, that favors the adoption of the english language in brazilian journals dealing with nosological problems. this argument is here questioned. latin america is a large continent with characteristic health problems. thus it is to be recommended that scientific public health journals should accept for publication papers written in the three main language: english, portuguese and spanish.
