Polymorphic Light Eruption In Children

PMLE: The exact cause of polymorphous light eruption isn't well understood. The rash appears in people who have developed a sensitivity to ultraviolet (uv) radiation from the sun or other sources, such as tanning beds or tanning lamps. This sensitivity results in sunlight-induced immune system activity that produces inflammation and a rash. No patients with pmle have progressed to lupus. ...Read more

Can you tell me why the major histocompatibility complex of genes is considered to be both polygenic and polymorphic.?
Loci and alleles:
There are multiple loci for the MHC genes, three for just the MHC class I genes, this would be polygenic. Each locus has different types of genes at the site in different people. The latter is called polymorphism.
See this site for details.

Can an NSVT be mistaken as monomorphic when really polymorphic in etiology? I have a long QT, syncope with exertion, and NSVT but NSVT said tobebenign
NSVT = nonsust VT?: Your abbreviations need some clarification. Is NSVT a supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) or a nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (VT)? Polymorphic VT can be mistaken for MVT as it is seen on a telemetry (single channel) tracing. Only by continuous 12-lead EKG can you exclude polymorphic VT (AKA torsades de pointe or TDP). Use HealthTap Prime or TTYD, as we are limited to 400 characters here. GL. ...Read more

Describe these: The term "eruptions" can have many different meanings to different doctors. If you could describe these (flat, elevated, small, large, colored, itchy, tender, pus-filled, and so on) it would be far easier to have some idea of what they might be. The best solution, however, is to have your local doctor take a look at them. ...Read more
For a 9yr old?: 9 is very late for eruption of a lower incisor (one the four first permanent teeth in the center of the mouth). A cuspid or canine tooth (more to the side) to be delayed at 9 is in the normal range. In the case of an incisor it could just not exist. In the case of a cuspid it could be blocked out. Generally reasons for this are too many to list. ...Read more

In the interim, have your doctor prescribed a topical steroid to speed up resolution. ...Read more

Urticaria: Hives comprise their own category of eruption. They are unique primarily due to their transient nature (each hive will last for less than a day and will be replaced by new ones as they crop up).

No blistering, ulcer or pus ...Read more

Below 500 is getting dangerous. ...Read more
Could a first molar eruption cause enlarged submandibular node in a child? The node is 1.7 CM w/ bening features in us ('"reactive node").
Yes, but...: A molar eruption, mouth sores, gum damage, or anything else in that part of the mouth can lead to an enlarged node nearby (such as submandibular or neck nodes). However, the more common causes are strep throat and viral infections in kids. If there is nothing wrong with a child, and the only thing is one enlarged node, some doctors just recheck it each month for 2-3 months. ...Read more
