Hair Loss in Men

Posted on

It’s a significant riddle technology has yet to completely solve, but there’s definite progress. Male pattern baldness is that mysterious condition that has enormous social significance but almost no medical significance… and it’s been a great boon to the baseball cap industry, of course.

In this survey, we take the pulse of American men who have experienced hair loss, to understand three primary things: how men respond to that hair loss (with treatments or lack thereof), what motivates their responses, and how they feel about the subject overall.

Surprising or not, a majority of men do very little to address their hair loss (particularly in the Northeast)—50 percent have responded by cutting their hair short or shaving it all off, while an additional one in four men don’t do anything different as their hair begins to disappear.

The least likely response is to go under the knife—just one percent of men undergo hair transplant surgery. Much more popular are shampoo treatments and medications like Rogaine and Propecia, the former being a spray, the latter being oral medication.
Guys on the West Coast are by far the most likely to explore over-the-counter treatments—nearly twice as many men experiencing hair loss on the West Coast have tried shampoos, than men in the Northeast. West Coast men are also most likely to have used sprays or medications: 34 percent on the West Coast have tried, versus an average of 18 percent throughout the rest of the country.

What motivates a particular guy’s response to his hair loss? Well, it’s not all about sex appeal. The most common answer was that doing something about it makes men feel more confident (sex appeal aside). That said, one in four men copped to wanting to enhance his sex appeal. Just behind that, statistically, was a desire to “fit in.” And the reasons men were least likely to cite as motivators to do something about their hair loss? It’s important to their work… or their significant other.

Multiple Limbal Cysts: An Unusual Presentation of Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Conjunctiva

Posted on

Introduction: Squamous cell carcinoma of conjunctiva or cornea is a rare entity with varying clinical presentations. Often it is misdiagnosed as pterygium and under-treated.
Presentation: An unusual case of 40 year old male, vendor by occupation with multiple cystic lesions with partly gelatinous surface n left eye limbus from 7’o clock to 9’o clock position. It also had a prominent, tortuous blood vessel supplying the lesion. Excision biopsy with 2 mm of healthy conjunctiva was carried out with cryotherapy. Histopathological examination confirmed our diagnosis of invasive squamous cell carcinoma. Eye drop Mitomycin C (0.02%) was instituted for a total of 4 weeks with mid-cycle interval of one week. As the course of MMC finished, another cryo application was done.
Conclusion: Squamous cell carcinoma can present in various clinical picture like in our case it presents uniquely as a cystic mass which has not been described in literature. After excision biopsy, cryotherapies with topical Mitomycin C are effective methods to prevent recurrence.

Prevalence and Factors Associated with Toxoplasma Gondii Immunization among Pregnant Women in Douala – Cameroon

Posted on

Toxoplasmosis, an infection by Toxoplasma (T.) gondii, often occurs without symptoms in immune competent adults, but can affect the fetus, causing miscarriage or severe complications if the infection takes place during pregnancy. Its prevalence varies widely and depends on dietary habits and hygiene levels within the population. The objective was to determine the seroprevalence and factors associated with T. gondii among pregnant women in three health care units in Douala, Cameroon.
