Abstract: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease that affects mainly women, presents several clinical manifestations and has no known exact cause. The skin is one of the organs that can be affected, with subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) being one of the classifications according to cutaneous lupus erythematosus lesions. SCLE is commonly found in young to middle age women and carries characteristics related to sun exposure. In this report, there is a rare case of a male and elderly patient that presents SCLE subgroup initially asymptomatic, with subsequent appearance of macular skin lesions and vitiligo appearance. This is an important case to alert health professionals that the disease can manifest itself and open its clinical profile even in patients of sex and unusual ages.

Abstract: Introduction: Syphilis consists in a systemic infect contagious pathology with a chronic character. The etiological agent consists of an anaerobic spirochete bacterium, Treponema pallidum. Laboratory diagnosis can be made through a direct investigation of the etiologic agent or non-treponemal (VDRL) and treponemal (FTA-Abs) serological tests. False-negative results are rare. Objectives: The present report presents a rare case of a man with a secondary syphilis syndrome who was initially undiagnosed due to the prozone effect, since he presented VDRL in low titers, and was later confirmed with a new diluted serum sample and VDRL and FTA-Abs, which were positive. Conclusion: A close look should be given to patients who, although the clinical condition is compatible, complementary exams may not be, and clinical cases should be carefully evaluated so that the patient is not treated late.

Abstract: Darier disease (DD), also known as follicular keratosis, is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary acantholytic dermatosis caused by a mutation in the ATP2A2 gene. Skin lesions are characterized by persistent confluent papules, preferentially located on the seborrheic areas of the face, chest and back. The hands, feet and nails are also commonly affected. DD has a chronic course with frequent relapses. Their treatment is often difficult and unsatisfactory. We present the case of a 54-year-old male with a history of keratotic papules with a brownish-black color, with a foul-smelling, pruritic and ardent appearance on the back and trunk, since the age of 19, which worsen in the summer. His 27-year-old daughter has a similar picture with her skin lesions started at age of 17 in the region below the breast, back, trunk, feet and hands. After the skin biopsy, the diagnosis was confirmed and acitretin 30 mg/day was instituted. The importance of this case report is to alert health professionals that the diagnosis of DD should be considered in family members of patients, especially those in the first degree, and also in patients with follicular keratolytic dermatoses, being an important differential diagnosis of this group of patients diseases.

Abstract: Henoch-Schönlein purpura is a vasculitis of small vessels, characterized by tissue deposition of IgA, affecting predominantly the skin, intestine, joints and kidneys. It mainly affects the pediatric age group, especially from 2 to 11 years old. Most often, it is preceded by episode of upper airway infection from days to weeks. The most common clinical manifestations are purpuric cutaneous lesions located in the lower limbs and buttocks, abdominal pain in colic, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, in addition to arthralgia/arthritis, usually with spontaneous resolution. Renal impairment usually manifests with hematuria and proteinuria, and renal function may also be impaired. The case described refers to a female patient, 86 years old, with a previous history of infection of the upper airways, followed by purpura in the lower limbs and renal impairment: serum creatinine 3.1 mg/dL (N 0.5 - 1.2 mg/dL); glomerular filtration rate 15 ml/min (N > 60 ml/min); urea 118 mg/dL (N < 40 g/dL); proteinuria 4.497 mg/24h. The present report aims to draw attention to the occurrence of Henoch-Schönlein purpura in an atypical age group, with significant renal impairment, improvement only with conservative treatment, thus avoiding the use of immunosuppressants and the risks of immunosuppression and toxicity related to such drugs.

Abstract: Paracoccidioidomycosis is the most prevalent systemic mycosis in Latin America. It is a fungal infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. This microorganism can penetrate the human body through direct contact and can cause intense lymphadenopathy, ulcerated lesions in the oral cavity and in the skin among other alterations. In this study, we report a case of paracoccidioidomycosis with unusual clinical presentation, as it manifested in the female sex and although it did not present any relevant complaints of respiratory focus, it presented a single ulcerated lesion in the buccal mucosa. A biopsy of the lesion and a mycological examination revealed Paracoccidioidesbrasiliensis infection.

Importance of nutrition in inflammatory bowel disease
Alfredo José Lucendo, Livia Cristina De Rezende
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2009,
Abstract: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) results from the interaction between an individual’s immune response and precipitant environmental factors, which generate an anomalous chronic inflammatory response in those who are genetically predisposed. Various feeding practices have been implicated in the origin of IBD based on epidemiological observations in developed countries, but we do not have solid evidence for the etiological role played by specific food types. IBD is associated with frequent nutritional deficiencies, the pattern and severity of which depends on the extent, duration and activity of the inflammation. Nutritional support allows these deficiencies in calories, macro- and micro-nutrients to be rectified. Enteral nutrition is also a primary therapy for IBD, especially for Crohn’s disease, as it allows the inflammatory activity to be controlled, kept in remission, and prevents or delays the need for surgery. Nutritional support is especially important in childhood IBD as an alternative to pharmacological treatment. This report discusses the complex relationship between diet and IBD.
A transi o da universidade ao mercado de trabalho na ótica do jovem The transition from university to the work market in the young's view
Simone Lopes de Melo,Livia de Oliveira Borges
Psicologia: Ciência e Profiss?o , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/s1414-98932007000300002
Abstract: O presente estudo tem o objetivo de contribuir para aprofundar a compreens o sobre a vivência de grupos específicos de jovens no que se refere à transi o universidade-mercado de trabalho. Realiza-se análise empírica, por meio de corte transversal de dois segmentos de jovens (graduandos e recém-graduados), de acordo com o grau universitário. Entre os resultados da análise de conteúdo das entrevistas de vinte jovens, observa-se que predominam semelhan as entre os dois grupos quanto aos aspectos transi o universidade-mercado de trabalho, dificuldades e facilidades de conseguir emprego, avalia o da universidade e do mercado de trabalho, imagem da profiss o e projetos futuros de trabalho. Tais semelhan as revelam que a experiência de estágio, pela qual estes passam antes de se tornarem profissionais com nível superior, pode favorecer uma vis o mais realista do mercado de trabalho e uma avalia o mais crítica da Universidade diante de um momento decisivo para o jovem em transi o. The objective of the present study is to contribute for the deepening of the understanding on the specific young groups' experience in relation to the transition University-work market. An empirical analysis through a transversal split of two segments of young people (those graduating and recent graduates) was done, according to their University level. Among the analysis results, based on the interviews of 20 young people, it was noted that similarities predominate between the two groups about aspects of the transition from the University to the work market, difficulties and ease in acquiring employment, evaluation of the University and the work market, the image of the profession and future job prospects. Such similarities suggest that the training period spent by these individuals before becoming professionals with a higher education would do well to include a more realistic vision of the work market and a more critical evaluation of the University at this crucial moment in the life of a young person in transition.

Melo, Glenda Cristina Valim de;
Revista Brasileira de Linguística Aplicada , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-63982012000100006
Abstract: this article presents representations about the kind of work that university professors hope to achieve when using information & communications technology (ict) in the classroom. the theoretical background is based on socio-discursive interactionism, theories about work as developed in clinical activity and ergonomics and in the characteristics of work proposed by machado (2010). six english language professors that use ict at work participated in the research project. data were collected via internet, through e-mail or moodle. each participant provided a text on their experiences and the use of ict. the results indicate that university professors use the ict in the same way, butsome restrictions to this matter are appointed by public university professors.
Constru o identitária da Bahia
Cristina Teixeira Vieira de Melo
Linguagem em (Dis)curso , 2006,
Abstract: Neste artigo, focalizamos a rela o entre linguagem e constru o de identidade. Com base em ferramentas teóricas e metodológicas da Análise do Discurso, analisamos as estratégias lingüístico-discursivas usadas pelo governo baiano em sua campanha publicitária de 2002, cuja assinatura anunciava: “Bahia um estado de espírito, um Estado de vanguarda”. Nessa campanha, a Bahia é representada através de três matrizes discursivas básicas: lugar de beleza natural incomparável; terra de gente alegre, festiva e trabalhadora e local onde o desenvolvimento acontece por meio das parcerias estabelecidas entre governo do Estado e empresariado. A partir da análise do ethos dos atores discursivos postos em cena (governo, empresários e trabalhadores), bem como da sele o verbal e lexical, apontamos aspectos relativos a como se arquiteta, na mídia, a constru o da identidade baiana.
