BACKGROUND: Plane warts are a common therapeutic problem. Our aim was to assess the efficacy and safety of oral versus topical isotretinoin in the treatment of plane warts. METHODS: Forty patients with multiple plane warts were randomized into two groups. Group A was treated with oral isotretinoin capsules in the dose of 0.5 mg/kg/d and Group B with topical isotretinoin 0.05% in gel formulation once daily at night. Treatment was given to the patients for 3 months or until the complete clearance of lesions, whichever was earlier...

OBJECTIVE: The epidermis is an epidermal barrier which accumulates lipid substances and participates in skin moisturizing. An evaluation of the epidermal barrier efficiency can be made, among others, by the measurement of the following values: the lipid coat, the transepidermal water loss (TEWL) index, and pH. MATERIALS: The study involved 50 Caucasian, healthy women aged 19-35 years (mean 20.56). METHODS: Measurements were made using Courage & Khazaka Multi Probe Adapter MPA 580: Tewameter TM 300, pH-Meter PH 905, Sebumeter SM 815...

INTRODUCTION: Taking care of newborn skin is necessary to avoid skin infections. The normal daily exposure to external factors affects the skin negatively. Skin hygiene and proper skin cleansing as well as protection of the infant skin barrier are essential to maintain barrier function and overall infant health. AIM: The aim of this work is to assess the neonatal skin care effectiveness in promotion of normal skin development and protection of the optimal skin function by avoiding the different neonatal skin disorders which cause skin infection...

SAPHO (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis) syndrome is a rare inflammatory condition describing the combination of skin, bone, and joint manifestations that has a heterogeneous presentation. We report a case of severe SAPHO syndrome in association with hidradenitis suppurativa and pyoderma gangrenosum in a 27-year-old male. The patient had an initial migratory arthritis affecting the knees, ankles, metacarpophalangeal joints, proximal interphalangeal joints, wrists, shoulder, and lower back, which progressed to a persistent arthritis and swelling at the sternum, shoulders, wrists, hands, feet, and lower back...

BACKGROUND: Some vascular malformations are difficult to manage with surgical treatment. Thus, percutaneous sclerotherapy has been utilized with several advantages over surgical treatment. Bleomycin is one of several sclerosing agents used for the treatment of vascular malformations. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate therapeutic efficacy and safety of percutaneous sclerotherapy using bleomycin for the treatment of vascular malformations. METHODS: Thirty patients diagnosed with vascular malformations, including four with capillary malformations with nodular change, nine with lymphatic malformations, and 17 with venous malformations, were involved in the study...

BACKGROUND: Scalp is a common location of autoimmune bullous diseases. Trichoscopy is a noninvasive method for diagnosing hair and scalp diseases. Data on trichoscopy in autoimmune bullous diseases are limited to the studies on pemphigus including a small number of patients. Trichoscopic characteristics of bullous pemphigoid and dermatitis herpetiformis were not reported to date. The aim of the study was to determine the value of trichoscopy in the differential diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris, pemphigus foliaceus, bullous pemphigoid, and dermatitis herpetiformis...

BACKGROUND: Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the most prevalent autoimmune blistering skin disease in Western countries and in Israel. Initial disease control is achieved in 60-90% of BP patients within 1-4 weeks of corticosteroid therapy. In the remainder of patients, recalcitrant disease is controlled with additional immunosuppressive treatment. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate the rate of BP patients who needed adjuvant therapy to achieve initial disease control and to identify potential predictors for recalcitrant disease...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies suggest that calciphylaxis is a thrombotic condition in which arteriolar thrombosis leads to painful skin infarcts and consequent morbidity and mortality. Paradoxically, warfarin is implicated as a risk factor for calciphylaxis. Our objective is to report the use of oral direct thrombin and factor Xa inhibitors (termed direct oral anticoagulants [DOACs]) in patients with calciphylaxis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of 16 patients with calciphylaxis who received concomitant administration of novel anticoagulants...

REVIEW
Dalal Almutairi, Kimberly LeBlanc, Afsaneh Alavi
A stoma is an artificial opening to the skin formed when a part of the gastrointestinal tract is resected and opened to the skin in order to divert the bowel content to the skin surface. The incidence of stomal and peristomal complication varies from 30 to 67% with a significant negative impact on patient quality of life. Despite their prevalence, care providers tend to show insufficient awareness of peristomal skin complications, and research-based evidence related to peristomal skin complication and management options particularly in dermatology literature is sparse...

INTRODUCTION: Leprosy is a chronic granulomatous condition caused by Mycobacterium leprae, and borderline tuberculoid (BT) leprosy is the most common type of leprosy and presents with large, well- to ill-defined hypopigmented patches. It is known for atypical presentations. Dermoscopy of granulomatous conditions is well documented. However, there is no description of dermoscopy of BT leprosy in the literature. Authors evaluated the dermoscopic patterns of BT leprosy. CASE REPORT: Patients with BT leprosy were studied for dermoscopic patterns...

BACKGROUND: Clinical and dermoscopic features of Bowen's disease (BD) show great diversity. Some lesions of BD are often difficult to be differentiated from seborrheic keratosis, actinic keratosis, lichen planus-like keratosis, etc. It is necessary to fully describe the dermoscopic features of the disease, considering differential diagnosis. OBJECTIVE: To describe the dermoscopic feautres of Bowen's disease and summarize the dermoscopic differential diagnosis of the disease...
