Don't forgetEdit

If you add a unique article or redirect, remember to also add it to the list of cutaneous conditions. ---kilbad (talk) 02:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Ah, yes :) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 03:54, 26 August 2009 (UTC)


(This was originally posted on the dermatology task force talk page, but I moved it here due to being more appropriate). Here is the list that needs creating/redirecting or simply ignoring. I am not sure as what to do with it but will leave to your judgment:

Here are my redirects (I need to figure out a way of further classifying some?)
  • Linear and whorled nevoid ‎
  • Zebra-line hyperpigmentation
  • Zimmermann-Laband syndrome ‎
  • Laband Zimmermann syndrome ‎
  • Zinsser-Engman-Cole syndrome
  • Ziprkowski-Margolis syndrome
I will place the ones that are appropriate on your list and that is that.
Will do another letter some other day hehe!
So apart from the above, the letter Z is taken care of. Cheers!Calaka (talk) 08:34, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Only 25 to go. Lәo(βǃʘʘɱ) 08:39, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Zonisamide, hypohidrosis et al. don't merit redirects in my humble opinion. Instead, a note should be added to the "Side effects" section of the Zonisamide article. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 14:54, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I spent some time reviewing Z today, just to see how we are doing, and I think you all are doing a great job! I just thought I would mention one thing so that our efforts continue to improve the derm content here on Wikipedia. When adding a new unique disease synonym to Wikipedia, make sure to do the following three things:
  • At this point, I think Z looks good, so I think we can continue to move on to the other letters. Thanks again for all your help! ---kilbad (talk) 18:41, 28 August 2009 (UTC)


Articles currently missing are:

The redirects, for the most part, are suggested by Bolognia with "See foo". The one exception is X-linked neutropenia, which is listed under Primary_immunodeficiency#Phagocyte_disorders, found through the search results. I'll proceed to make the redirects unless anyone has any objections. I guess it should be noted that I really lack any specific medical knowledge; I'm just here to help out. Lәo(βǃʘʘɱ) 03:02, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

  • I think some of the x-linked items may need their own articles. I will try to work on those topics today. ---kilbad (talk) 19:57, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I have looked through X and am satisfied with the work we have done. What do you all think? Can we move on to the next letter? Thanks again. ---kilbad (talk) 20:43, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Larger letters might need more coordination between members; micromanagement between the specific subsections of each letter? Lәo(βǃʘʘɱ) 21:34, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I think micromanagement between the specific subsections of each letter is a good idea. ---kilbad (talk) 01:53, 30 August 2009 (UTC)


Note that two above do not start with the letter Y but were found within the Y index. All the other items in the letter Y have been taken care of or were already present on Wikipedia.
Cheers!Calaka (talk) 12:19, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Ok, I have looked through Y, and I think we have done a good job. Which letter should we move onto next? How about Q? ---kilbad (talk) 04:06, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Q sounds good. Lәo(βǃʘʘɱ) 04:51, 30 August 2009 (UTC)


I have already done some work on Q. Perhaps someone could review that section and see if we need any additional stubs/redirects? ---kilbad (talk) 04:52, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Here is my overview of Q:
Cheers!Calaka (talk) 13:31, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
I think Optical penetration depth is different than penetration depth. The first deals with eyesight and such (I assume, with the "optical" bit. I'll have to check the book to confirm or disprove this) and the second is about electromagnetic radiation. Lәo(βǃʘʘɱ) 18:27, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I am going to cross Q off if nobody objects? ---kilbad (talk) 13:36, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
None by me. My assumption is that once a list has been looked through and any missing articles/redirects/etc. have been either taken care of or posted her for others to tackle then the letter can be crossed off.Calaka (talk) 09:03, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps we can hold off on crossing letters off until all the redirects/stubs have been created. ---kilbad (talk) 12:11, 2 September 2009 (UTC)


Here's what's missing starting with M:

Question about adding synonyms to the list: are they to be added wikilinked in the main listing, or in parentheses after the preferred name? Sasata (talk) 05:54, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Generally, with diseases that are known by more than one name, if none of those names are found in the list, then add one of the names to the list as a link (I try to use the most common name/preferred name for the link; though this can be a somewhat subjective choice) followed by the remaining synonyms in an alphabetized parenthetical without linking. So, the format is: Some Disease (Synonym 1, Synonym 2, etc). Does that make sense? Also, again, though the synonyms are not made links in the list, they should have redirects created with categories (see above discussions). ---kilbad (talk) 12:21, 31 August 2009 (UTC)


A big section in relation to Urticaria (I am guessing much just needs to be redirected but best to double check for sub pages):
That finishes of U.Calaka (talk) 11:49, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Done with "U" ---kilbad (talk) 21:08, 3 November 2009 (UTC)


  • What chapter of the book is it in? ---kilbad (talk) 20:25, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
This is it for now, I am up to Keratoderma.Calaka (talk) 11:10, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
You have all been doing a great job. However, in addition to making redlinks though, perhaps you all could help create these redlink redirects/stibs? I just feel there are too many for one person to take on... ---kilbad (talk) 20:24, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
HAHA! I was actually thinking, boy Kilbad is very generous in creating all the articles we find for him! :) But nah, my plan was to have all the red links down, then to attempt them. Whenever I see articles already here and all is needed is a redirect I usually go for it and only leave the ones I am unsure of. As for creating articles that there is no info on, I would give it a go, but I am not an expert in this field so maybe if someone with expertise can check my articles creations just to make sure I did it right then that would go a lot better (when time permits that is hehe). Cheers!Calaka (talk) 05:00, 6 September 2009 (UTC)


I think I have finished W. Does someone want to spot check me, and then cross it out? ---kilbad (talk) 17:02, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Sure. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 23:02, 8 September 2009 (UTC)


Bojilov (talk) 03:21, 10 November 2009 (UTC)


Ok, I am done with the first of the six sections of T. ---kilbad (talk) 20:45, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Required RedirectsEdit


More will come... Åkebråke (talk) 20:37, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your help. I think the block articles could be merged if you want to. ---kilbad (talk) 00:22, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
At first I thought that they should be merged, but now I am not sure, Inferior alveolar nerve anaesthesia is for dental procedures, but Retrobulbar_block is for eye surgery. Åkebråke (talk) 13:47, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Bolognia push updateEdit

Thank you all for your help on the Bolognia push. We have made a lot of progress, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the community. ---kilbad (talk) 02:44, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Kawasaki diseaseEdit

Kawasaki disease is throwing me for a loop. I see a few potential groups it can go into (Autoinflammatory, Erythemas, maybe like SJD drug related); however, the one I feel is best doesn't exist: Category:Cardiocutaneous. any suggestions? Calmer Waters 20:07, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

It is already in the list under "vascular-related." ---kilbad (talk) 20:09, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Search the list for Kawasaki's disease. Hope that helps! ---kilbad (talk) 20:10, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

T updateEdit

I am on section 5/6 of the letter T. ---kilbad (talk) 14:46, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I am halfway through the last section of T, just FYI. ---kilbad (talk) 17:31, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
T is done ---kilbad (talk) 03:56, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

K updateEdit

I have finished with the keratodermas, I think, and am into the second, and final, section of K. Once I finish K I will move back to S. How is everyone else doing? ---kilbad (talk) 03:54, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

S updateEdit

I am on section 1/6 for the letter S, just FYI. ---kilbad (talk) 21:25, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

I have now finished the massive first section (1/6) of S. ---kilbad (talk) 17:02, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
Done with 2/6 of S ---kilbad (talk) 06:41, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Done with 3/6 of S ---kilbad (talk) 04:18, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
4/6 done ---kilbad (talk) 22:06, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Done with S! ---kilbad (talk) 22:31, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Clouston's hidrotic ectodermal dysplasiaEdit

Please remind me as to which area a disease process should go when it is classified within two. In early 2009, Clouston's hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia was categorized as Category:Genodermatoses, while its synonym Clouston syndrome was categorized as Category:Papulosquamous hyperkeratotic skin diseases. Bolognia haves it under Diffuse keratodermas, so that is also where I placed it under the list. My question is: if a disorder falls into two categories, does it go into both categories on the List of cutaneous conditions? Calmer Waters 13:59, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Makes sense. Those little PPKs I tell you :) Thanks again kilbad. Calmer Waters 16:40, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
  • The PPK's are brutal... no doubt about it! ---kilbad (talk) 23:42, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
