    Transparency

    A fundamental principle in our charter states, "Sources of funding to the institute will be publicized including the name of the donor unless the donor requests anonymity. Expenses of the institute will be publicized down to the last cent, showing where all the spending went and for what purpose." So transparency (behavior) is at the core of our charter. 

    All funding expenses and donations will be reported on this page including exactly what was spent on each item, line by line. The names of all donors and the amount donated will be included, unless the donor requests anonymity. To make a donation click here.

    The RRDi reports all financial statements so that you can see where the money is coming from and where it is going. What other non profit organization for rosacea does this? Can you find all the financial reports for a non profit organization for rosacea from the time of its inception to the most recent report? We believe in transparency. From 2004 thru 2013 we went the extra mile and filed Form 990 Schedule A and Form EZ. However, since we receive donations less than $50,000 we are only required to fill out Form 990N. So from 2014 we file only Form 990N and include a Google Doc Spreadsheet of our financial report which you can review below.

    • After a couple of pool visits, I noticed a rash forming on my arms and blotchy, red patches on my face. Like a responsible adult woman, I decided to see my family doctor who told me that the condition of my skin was “concerning” and “may have been caused by chlorine.” The doctor diagnosed it as “probably rosacea” and prescribed me an antibiotic compound cream which I have to slather on my face three times a day.

      Mascarenhas et al. report that TRPV4 expression is upregulated in mast cells in response to the proteolytic cathelicidin fragment LL37 in a murine rosacea model and that TRPV4 loss of function attenuates mast cell degranulation. These findings render TRPV4 a translational-medical target in rosacea. However, signaling mechanisms causing increased expression of TRPV4 await elucidation. Moreover, we ask whether TRPV4-mediated Ca(++)-influx evokes mast cell degranulation.

      Rhinophyma is considered the end stage in the development of rosacea, accompanied by hypertrophy of the sebaceous glands, which causes an enlargement of the nose. It is an uncommon condition that often results in both functional and cosmetic impairment. A large variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatments have been published to treat it. Closure is usually obtained by wound granulating in by secondary intention, skin grafting or local flaps. Rarely these lesions can attain a giant size and pose a challenge in surgical treatment. We present a 63-year-old male with the necessity for tracheostomy at the ICU due to total nasal obstruction and recurrent episodes of pneumonia caused by a huge giant rhinophyma, which had undergone extreme growth in the last five years. The tumor was removed under general anesthesia by decortication with an electrosurgical wire loop to recreate the aesthetic units of the nose preserving the alar cartilage as well as the pilosebaceous appendages. The wounds healed in by secondary intention with a very pleasant cosmetic and improved functional result. The relevant literature is discussed.
