Behçet's disease (BD) involves oxidative stress (OS) aggression and imbalanced oxidant/antioxidant status. Owing to its antioxidant property, allicin is proposed for treating BD. In this study, we aimed to investigate the efficacy and safety of allicin on patients with BD with mucocutaneous involvement. Twenty patients with active BD were treated with allicin for 12 weeks and followed up to 16 weeks. A clinical manifestations index and scoring system was the primary technique for efficacy evaluation at baseline and Week 4, 12, 16...

Chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis (CNH) is characterized by a tender nodule located on the helix or antihelix. Age groups impacted by CNH vary from study to study, but the majority of studies report an average age range from 50 to 80 years. Various treatment options have been described in the literature, including surgical techniques, laser therapy, curettage, topical and intralesional corticosteroids, and pressure relieving techniques. The main goal of therapy is to reduce pain and improve clinical appearance...

We conducted a cross-sectional study on the occurrence of a specific type of genital human papillomavirus (HPV) among long-term monogamous male partners of women with cervical dysplasia and genital warts. The purpose of the study was to improve knowledge with regards to the management of these couples. The presence of genital HPV-DNA was detected by PCR with broad spectrum primers followed by hybridization. 82 males met the study criteria, 41 in each group. Genital HPV-DNA prevalence was 67.5% in the genital warts group and 72...

Hair shedding in female patients is a frequent complaint in dermatological, endocrinological, and gynecological consults. Previously, the Sinclair Hair Shedding Scale was developed to assess normal versus excessive hair shedding in female pattern hair loss (FPHL) subjects. However, the prevalence of hair shedding in females not suffering from FPHL is unknown. To gain better understanding of hair shedding in the general population, we recruited 300 subjects visiting a public hospital for conditions other than alopecia...

Re-pigmentation and stabilization are the two ultimate goals of any re-pigmenting plan designed for vitiligo management. Furthermore, whether the improvement of some vitiligo lesions could be considered a guarantee for a similar response and/or stabilization of the rest of the lesions or not, remains to be clarified. To evaluate the behavior of non-segmental vitiligo (NSV), while on narrow band-ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) phototherapy. 25 patients with stable generalized NSV were included and received NB-UVB twice weekly...

Intense pulsed light (IPL) has been used for years in treatment of acne vulgaris. However, quantitative evaluation of histopathological changes after its use as a sole therapy was poorly investigated. Accordingly, this study aims to objectively evaluate inflammatory infiltrate and sebaceous glands in acne vulgaris after IPL. Twenty-four patients of acne were treated with six IPL sessions. Clinical evaluation was done at 2 weeks after last session by counting acne lesions. Patient satisfaction using Cardiff Acne Disability Index (CADI) was recorded at baseline, 2 weeks and 3 months after IPL...

Serious complications arising from surgical hair restoration are relatively uncommon following well-performed and well-planned surgery by skillful surgical techniques, good communication, and postoperative follow-up. Surgical complications often categorized as those which occur in the donor site and the recipient site. In this paper among recipient area complication we focused on recipient area necrosis that arises when an increased number of recipient grafts are utilized and de-vascularization of the scalp occurs as a result of the large wound area due to the dense packing splitting of recipient skin...

: Vitiligo is a chronic disorder of depigmentation that has different treatment modalities, but patients' nonadherence is common. This study aimed to assess the influence of patients' medication beliefs on patients' adherence to topical, oral medications, and phototherapy in vitiligo. Between September 2015 and February 2016, 260 patients with vitiligo were asked to fill in the Beliefs about Medicines Questionnaire (BMQ) to assess their beliefs about therapy for vitiligo. Their adherence to the therapy was examined using the 8-item Morisky Medication Adherence Scale (MMAS-8)...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a relatively uncommon malignant soft tissue tumor. Although metastasis is rare, it has significant topo-aggressive characteristics with a high recurrence rate. The common treatment of DFSP is surgical resection. This study reported a case of a 22 years old woman who presented DFSP with single irregular red plaque in the right occipital area. The plaque is about 2 cm × 2 cm in diameter with an irregular and unclear border. In order to minimize the range of resection area, the contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) was used to precisely identify the tumor affected area before the surgery treatment...
