Understanding Psoriasis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes thick, itchy patches of red skin with silvery scaling. The top two layers of your skin are called the epidermis and dermis. New cells at the bottom of the epidermis constantly move up and replace the older cells above them. Normally, it takes about a month for cells to make this journey. In psoriasis cells reach the skin surface in only six to eight days because of a problem with your immune system. Scientists think your immune system mistakes certain natural substances in your skin as foreign invaders. This causes your immune system to start a counter attack called an inflammatory response. Inflammation is a series of changes that happen in your skin including enlarged blood vessels, growth of more blood vessels, more immune cells in the area forming groups, and faster creation of new skin cells. Over time the process of inflammation becomes a cycle. Damaged skin cells signal more immune cells to come to the area. In turn the immune cells cause your skin cells to multiply rapidly and your skin to get thicker. This results in raised itchy inflamed areas called plaques on your skin. Scientists think that psoriasis is passed down in families through parts of your DNA called genes. You can develop psoriasis if you have these genes then experience certain triggers such as skin injuries, dry skin, infections, stress, smoking, and certain medications. If you have any questions about psoriasis, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury lawyers."

Aaron R. Larson, Esq.

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services. Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."
