afuturemd Pemphigus vulgaris: autoimmune disease where Ab attack desmoglein. Epidermal cells lose cell-cell adhesion (#desmosones) capability and skin can easily blister. Blisters can slough off and cause erosions. Blister formation can occur on any part of the skin but more common in areas when skin-skin friction more common. (Sorry, this isn't very detailed or concise, also lacks diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, mortality/morbidity, everything...just going off of quick memory. More detail to follow.) #dermatology #pemphigusvulgaris #autoimmune #desmoglein #blisters #erosions #medschool #MDPhD #medstudent #medicalschool #premed #postbacc #biomed #medicine #medical #biology #genetics #science #premedstudents #afuturemd #futuredoc #getthatMD #getthatDO 1mon

afuturemd It has been over 7 weeks since I posted. #medschool is incredibly demanding and this Instagram, my blog, and my life aren't the only things being neglected. I'm going to post a few photos to help me review for an exam. Enjoy!️ "Mesenchymal stem cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a human mesenchymal stem cell (MSC). MSCs are multipotent stromal (connective tissue) cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), and adipocytes (fat cells). The youngest, most primitive MSCs can be obtained from the umbilical cord tissue."

What study tips do you have for other students? What motivates you to actually learn instead of memorize? #medicine #medschool #proteins #premed #prehealth #postbacc #biochem #biochemistry #science #chemistry #ochem #orgo #medstudents #medicalschool #medicalstudents 3mon

afuturemd People say that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary situation but some people have suffered so long in sorrow that none of us can truly understand their pain, decisions, and life. I hope that Robin Williams and the members of his family find peace. If you ever need to talk to someone, please call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or suicide[dot]org (US & International) #genieyourefree #robinwilliams #RIProbinwilliams #suicideprevention #pleasedonotgiveuohope #aladdin #peterpan #popeye #flubber #mrsdoubtfire #jumanji 4mon

afuturemd "What is it that I’m fighting?” That simple but fundamental question was posed to Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee by a patient who had just been diagnosed with cancer. As he considered the magnitude of the question, Sid realized that we, as a society, had not yet provided an answer. Thus, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer was born. Four years after Sid’s biography of cancer became a New York Timesbestseller, I am honored to adapt his Pulitzer Prize-winning book to film. The Story of Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies is a three-part, six-hour major television event that will chronicle the past, present and future of cancer at a moment of enormous promise in the search for a cure. (Letter from Barak Goodman, the director of "The Story of Cancer".

afuturemd What Is Anthropodermic Bibliopegy, and How Do You Do It? "Rising in popularity during the 17th and 18th Centuries, the practice of binding books in human skin, anthropodermic bibliopegy, fell off due to its macabre nature near the end of the Victorian Age. Physicians enjoyed the practice, often using human skin, regardless of the source, to bind anatomy texts. A few examples of books with anthropodermic binding are bound out of affection for the author, but most early examples of anthropodermic bibliopegy are the result of human skin claimed from medical cadavers or criminals sentenced to death, with their skin used to bound the record of their trials as a form of punishment that surpasses death." Source: Keith Veronese, "Anthropodermic Bibliopegy, or The Truth About Books Bound In Human Skin". Photo: Houghton Library's copy of Des destinées de l'ame, bound in human skin, 1880s (Harvard University). 6mon
