BACKGROUND: The use of glucocorticoids in various forms of administration is complicated by their systemic side effects. Although intravenous pulse therapy is considered to have lesser systemic side effects, there are few studies in literature comparing the effects of intravenous pulse glucocorticoids versus oral daily glucocorticoids on bone mineral density. AIM: To compare the effects of intravenous pulse glucocorticoids and oral daily glucocorticoids on bone mineral density with the aim of finding any site-specific osteopenic side effect...

Rosai-Dorfman disease is difficult to cure. In situ photoimmunotherapy combines local photothermal therapy with immunoadjuvant. In the present case report, a 39-year-old Chinese man with Rosai-Dorfman disease lesions below the left nostril and left preauricular region was treated with in situ photoimmunotherapy. The patient was treated with daily application of topical imiquimod (5%) and laser irradiations every 2 weeks for 8 weeks. After three cycles of treatment, the lesions improved markedly without adverse effects...

BACKGROUND: Toxic epidermal necrolysis and Stevens-Johnson syndrome comprise life-threatening, drug-induced mucocutaneous disease spectrum. Interest in cyclosporine, a calcineurin inhibitor that can block the function of T-cells, has increased with the discovery of the importance of granulysin in apoptosis in toxic epidermal necrolysis. In our hospital, cyclosporine is given to Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis patients as an adjunctive therapy. AIMS: This study is an observational, record-based study comparing the effectiveness and safety of patients receiving cyclosporine versus only supportive therapy...

BACKGROUND: Cutaneous leishmaniasis is a common parasitic infestation in Iran. With recent advantages in digital imaging, we have devised a novel non-contact objective method of measuring lesions. AIM: The aim of the study was to design a software system that analyzes images of cutaneous leishmaniasis lesions, objectively assess and monitor volume. METHODS: A photographic technique along with an image processing algorithm was applied to extract a three-dimensional map of the lesion from a simple two-dimensional picture...

BACKGROUND: Tinea incognito is a dermatophytic infection with a clinical presentation that is modified due to previous treatment with topical or systemic steroids, as well as topical immunomodulators. It tends to mimic other dermatological conditions. AIMS: To evaluate the various clinical manifestations, sites, predisposing factors and causative agents of tinea incognito. METHODS: A prospective observational study was done on one hundred clinically suspected cases of tinea incognito, with a history of topical or systemic steroid use for a period of at least six weeks...

BACKGROUND: Pemphigus is a chronic autoimmune blistering disease where systemic steroids and immunosuppressants are the mainstay of therapy, but long-term treatment with these agents is associated with many side effects. Rituximab, a chimeric monoclonal anti-CD20 antibody, in low doses has shown efficacy as an adjuvant to reduce the dose of steroids. AIM: To study the clinical efficacy and safety of low-dose rituximab as an adjuvant therapy in pemphigus. METHODS: Fifty patients with extensive pemphigus were selected, who either had recalcitrant pemphigus, were steroid dependent, had relapsed after pulse therapy, had anti-desmoglein levels >20, had contraindications to conventional treatment or wanted to avoid conventional treatment and its side effects...
