INTRODUCTION: Actinic cheilitis (AC) is a lip intraepithelial neoplasia, whose cells present alterations similar to those presented by invasive squamous cell carcinomas (SCC). OBJECTIVE: To conduct clinical and laboratory evaluation by histopathology and immunohistochemistry of the efficacy of actinic cheilitis treatment using photodynamic therapy (PDT) with methyl aminolevulinate (MAL) and non-coherent red light. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with actinic cheilitis detected by histopathological examination were submitted to two sessions of photodynamic therapy with a two-week interval between them...

BACKGROUND: Skin microtopography as a measure of photoaging is a non-invasive approach to measuring chronic ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure, and reflects the degree of dermal elastosis in populations of European descent in the subtropics. Less is known about the utility of this approach in populations at different latitudes, and whether it relates to skin cancer risk. METHODS: A population-based case-control study of 342 SCC cases and 331 age- and gender-matched controls were evaluated for histologic evidence of solar damage and severity of photoaging based on microtopography on a six-grade scale...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of vitiligo is still one of the most difficult dermatological challenges, although there are many therapeutic options. Narrow band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) phototherapy is considered to be a very important modality for generalized vitiligo. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore whether a combination of NB-UVB and topical agents would be superior to NB-UVB alone for treating vitiligo. METHODS: We searched the electronic databases such as PUBMED, EMBASE, Cochrane Library and Web of Science...

BACKGROUND: Skin hyperpigmentary disorders including postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma, solar lentigines, and conditions like freckles are common. The light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are the latest category of nonthermal and noninvasive phototherapy to be considered in skin pigmentation disorder treatment. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of 660-nm LED on inhibition of melanogenesis. We investigated whether a 660-nm LED affected melanin synthesis in in vitro and in vivo models, and we explored the mechanisms involved...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Vitiligo is the most commonly acquired depigmentation disorder of the skin and is characterized by the destruction of melanocytes. Ultraviolet phototherapy with narrow band (UVB-NB) induces proliferation, differentiation, maturation, and migration of melanocytes. The clinical repigmentation is featured by follicular, marginal, and diffuse patterns. The aim of this study was to observe the process involved in the melanocyte migration and proliferation among these patterns and the unresponsive lesions following UVB-NB phototherapy...

BACKGROUND: Seasonal variation in glycated hemoglobin levels has been observed, and sun exposure has been considered as one of the factors associated with this relationship. Fructosamine is a short-time marker of blood protein glycation. AIM: We investigated the effect of seven days of sunbathing on blood fructosamine concentration in healthy volunteers using different ultraviolet radiation (UVR) protections. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Participants were assigned to one of three groups: group A - used a UVA and UVB absorbing sunscreen (N = 15), group B - used a UVB absorbing sunscreen (N = 18), and group C - followed uncontrolled sun protection habits (N = 22)...

Overlap chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) associates both features of acute and chronic GVHD. Trigger factors for chronic GVHD are unclear. We describe two patients who received allogenic haematopoietic stem-cell transplantation, and who later developed overlap chronic GVHD after sun exposure. Available data from in vivo investigations suggest ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) has a beneficial effect on acute and chronic GVHD. The role of sun irradiation as a trigger for isomorphic cutaneous GVHD has been rarely reported in the literature...

BACKGROUND: Photodermatoses are typically investigated by analyzing the individual or combined effects of ultraviolet A (UVA), ultraviolet B (UVB), and visible light using light sources that simulate portions of the solar spectrum. Infrared radiation (IRR), however, accounts for 53% of incident solar radiation, but its effects are not taken into account in standard phototest protocols. AIMS: The aim was to analyze the effects of IRR, alone and combined with UVA and visible light on solar urticaria lesions, with a distinction between infrared A (IRA) and infrared B (IRB)...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, excimer light treatments have come to the fore in localized vitiligo because of their high efficacy and safety. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of 308-nm excimer lamp as a monotherapy and its combination with tacrolimus 0.1% or clobetasol 17-propionate 0.05% ointment in localized vitiligo. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study including a total of 82 patients who were treated with excimer lamp monotherapy (EL group) (n = 30), excimer lamp + topical tacrolimus (EL + T group) (n = 29), or excimer lamp + topical clobetasol 17-propionate (EL + CS group) (n = 23)...

BACKGROUND: Phototherapy especially narrow-band UV-B (NBUVB) has been considered as mainstay of therapy in nonsegmental vitiligo (generalized type). Topical tacalcitol has also been claimed to be effective, either as monotherapy or as combination therapy. PURPOSE: Comparison of clinical efficacy and safety of NBUVB in combination with topical tacalcitol vs. NBUVB alone in vitiligo. MATERIAL & METHODS: Thirty patients with symmetrical vitiliginous lesions were enrolled for 24 weeks...
