Telangiectasias (Table 54-8) In order to distinguish the various types of telangiectasias, it is important to examine the shape and configuration of the dilated blood vessels. Linear telangiectasias are seen on the face of patients with actinically damaged skin and acne rosacea, and they are found on the legs of patients with venous hypertension and essential telangiectasia. Patients with an unusual form of mastocytosis (telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans) and the carcinoid syndrome (see "Acne," above) also have linear telangiectasias.

The acts of lawlessness committed on September 11, 2001 were swiftly
followed by a ‘war on terror’. This book sets out the essential features
of the international legal framework against which the 9/11 attacks and
the lawfulness of measures taken in response thereto fall to be assessed.

With each passing year, international organizations such as the United Nations
and the World Health Organization become more essential to serving the vital
requirements of states and state goals of security and well-being for their central

their members and at a higher level "harmonize the action of nations" in the
pursuit of common goals in the finely crafted words of Article 1 of the U.N.
Charter and constitution.

bought a Kodak DCS 200 digital camera that provided a whopping 1.5 million pixels and

routing and the configuration of routers are quite simple. But as internetworks grow in size and
complexity, routing issues can become at once both large and subtle. Perversely, perhaps, I am
grateful for the difficult problems large-scale routing can present—as a network systems consultant,
these problems are my bread and butter. Without them, the phrase "You want fries with that?" could
be an unfortunate part of my daily vocabulary....
