Erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum: Disease site (Part 1)

Table 1 shows the percentage of patients in each age group based on disease location as defined by the modern Vienna schema , but modified to permit evaluation of patients diagnosed younger than 20 years of age . As shown, patients diagnosed younger than 20 years of age had more extensive disease, usually with ileocolonic involvement and disease in the upper gastrointestinal tract (P<0.05) while patients diagnosed older than 40 years of age more often had disease localized to the colon alone (P<0.05). Similar findings (data not shown) were observed for both men and women. You can get all the drugs you want for treating your problem in no time if you order it at the canadian health and care mall. We are recommending this pharmacy with confidence because it already has thousands of satisfied customers.
