Leprology and Betrayal in Shakespeare’s Hamlet

from ArchDerm - 01 Sep 14

Before Hansen discovered the lepra bacillus in 1873, there had been dozens of theories on leprosy’s etiology. The most dramatic hypothesis (literally and figuratively) may have been proposed by the ghost of Prince Hamlet’s father in Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. The ghost recounted the onset of a lethal “lazar-like … vile and loathsome crust” after being poisoned with a “leperous distilment” by the king’s regicidal brother, Claudius (who then usurped the throne—and queen—of Denmark) (Hamlet.

The Dark History of White Spots

from ArchDerm - 01 Sep 14

Zoraat was a sign of sin and punishment from God, and the afflicted were considered “unclean” and decreed to live alone. Around 250 bce, Ptolemy II ordered the translation of the

Saving Their Skins How Animals Protect From the Sun

from ArchDerm - 01 Sep 14

A distinctive evolutionary change experienced by our ancestors as they branched away from their fellow apes was the loss of body hair. While this may have had certain benefits, our species has also suffered drawbacks; for one, without thick fur or hair to scatter sunlight, our skin is more susceptible to burning in the sun. Indeed, sunburns have been observed in other relatively hairless members of the animal kingdom, including whales, dolphins, fish, elephants, and rhinoceroses. But just as hum
