However, the actual term "alopecia areata" was first used by Sauvages in his "Nosologica Medica", published in 1760 in Lyons, France. From the 1800's onwards there was considerable debate about the cause of alopecia areata. Two main hypotheses were put forward, one based on parasitic infection, the other based on a nervous
During the early 1920s, the naturopathic movement had reached its peak in awareness and popularity. The suppression of the naturopathic movement occurred during 1930-1970 due to an incline in social and political dominance of allopathic medicine. it re-emerged in the 1960s, which saw the opening of universities and the gradual integration of alternative healing in society (ANTA 2015). Today, only those sufficiently qualified may treat a patient by identifying and diagnosing ailments. Due to this, the term 'iris analysis' developed which indicates how iridologists find weaknesses in
(Baylina, 2011). I will summarize what actions have been taken and what new quality concerns are being taken to prevent this high mortality condition. HAIs are not new to healthcare, they are referred to as nosocomial infections. In 1959 a report was published by the central health services UK, which identified the prevalence of contraction of the infections during patients hospital stay. The number one disease then was and still plagues hospitals today is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, also known as MRSA.
In 1866 he was appointed visiting lecturer atPavia, and later took charge of the insane asylum at Pesaro in 1871. He became professor of forensic medicine and hygiene at Turin in 1878, where he was later professor of psychiatry (1896) and criminal anthropology (1906]. He died in Turin in 1909) Cesare Lombroso holds a prominent position in the modem chronology. In fact he is considered to be the “father of modern criminology” (Mannheim, 1972: 232), During the 19th century his work gained attention as he integrated the concepts of atavism and “throwback” of criminals to an earlier stage in human evolution (Schaefer, 1969: 126). His work emphasizes on the different categories and types of criminals such as born criminals, criminaloids, and insane criminals, as well as research on female offenders.
Horace Miners article Body Ritual among the Nacirema offers great insight into the relevance of Anthropology to modern society by way of satire. The article characterizes the Nacirema people of North America, “discovered” by Miner, and their perceived obsession with the human body. The author claimed to analyze rites and rituals among the Nacirema people. Upon realizing that the word Nacirema read backwards is American, it was easy to deduct that the article was in fact an elaborate description of American oral hygiene as well as a crude sketch of hospital and psychiatric care in our society. Miner detailed their rites and rituals from a purposely ethnocentric point of view which also served the purpose of describing American culture from the point of view of an extreme outsider.
Compare and contrast Cézanne’s Bathers (Plate 1.3.4) with Correggio’s Leda with the Swan (Plate 1.3.8) When I look at Cézanne’s Bathers and Correggio’s Leda with the Swan one of the first things that hits me is the delineation, which is ‘the representation of shapes and means by drawing’ (Harrison, 2008. P64) Correggio’s painting shows much more detail then Cézanne’s and can be seen by looking at how the figures are painted. Correggio shows the facial expression on each character along with life like bodies as shown in their nudity, which is something Cézanne’s painting shows, as apart from the outline of the person being visible the only real detail given to the Bathers is on their breasts. Looking at Correggio’s painting you can get the feeling of actually being there at the same time as Leda, such is the delineation of the picture. By looking at its picture plane you can imagine the woodland setting carrying on outside the frame with the swan flying off into the distance.
Alopecia is a kind of disease where the autoimmune system of the body attacks the new cells forming in the hair follicles by mistake. Its main characteristic is hair loss that is sudden and random, as well as recurrent in some cases. Alopecia affects both men and women, regardless of age. There are different kinds of alopecia; the variation depends on where the disease occurs in the body, as well as its probable causes. The different kinds of alopecia are as follows: 1.
This had a very large effect on his memory systems. After the operation, HM was unable to form new memories for facts or events. However, he showed only mild difficulty in recalling events from around 11 or so years before the operation, and could remember virtually everything from 16 or more years before the operation. Eventhough he had severe difficulty transferring information to his long-term memory, his short-term memory was virtually normal. Question: Does the above case study support the multi-store model of memory?
A case of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome or simply progeria was first reported in 1886 by Hutchinson. Gilford was the first to describe HGPS in 1904. Gilford later coined the syndrome with the term progeria (Agarwal). Progeria derives from the Greek word, gēras, which means old age (Pollex). The diagnosis of progeria is based upon physical appearance (Gulli).
The reservoirs of the virus are typically ocular, oral, or genital epithelial cells (Hodge). Herpes Virus Infections have been prevalent as early as ancient Greek times. Hippocrates is known to have described the cutaneous spreading of herpes simplex lesions and scholars of Greek civilization define the greek word "herpes" to mean "to creep or crawl" in reference the spreading nature of the herpetic skin lesions. Even Shakespeare is thought to have been familiar with recurrent herpes simplex lesions and their transmission. In Romeo and Juliet, he writes Queen Mab to say "O'er ladies lips, who straight on kisses dream, which oft the angry Mab with blisters plagues, because their breaths with sweetmeats tainted are."
