OBJECTIVE: Although the etiology of Behcet's disease is not clarified yet, the vascular endothelial damage and thrombosis are prominent features of the disease. The underlying mechanisms of increased risk of thrombosis in Behcet's disease are not completely understood. It is stated that the changes in blood rheology such as erythrocyte deformability take part in the thrombosis. There are limited numbers of studies with conflicting results about the erythrocyte deformability in Behcet's disease...

Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) antagonists are employed increasingly during recent years in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis who do not respond to disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs. Contraindications such as infections, auto-antibody formation and hypersensitive reactions can be observed during the treatment with TNF-α antagonist drugs. Our case was a 52-year-old woman, followed by several centers for a period of 21 years with a seropositive, erosive and nodular RA diagnosis. Anti TNF-α treatment was commenced due to the failure to control the disease...

Temporary henna tattoos have become increasingly widespread. Although reactions to henna tattoo are becoming progressively more common, only one case of a henna pseudotattoo resulting in temporary hypertrichosis has been reported so far. We report three patients who received paint-on henna tattoos on their right upper arm. Approximately 1 week later, localized hypertrichosis was observed over the same area as the tattoo, which resolved spontaneously within 3-4 months. Clinicians should be aware of this complication and it should be noted that treatment is not necessary as hypertrichosis resolves spontaneously...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of ingrown toenails using chemical matricectomy in patients with diabetes has been difficult, because delayed wound healing, wound infections, and digital ischemia can interfere with the procedure. Chemical matricectomy with 10% sodium hydroxide is an effective treatment for ingrown toenails in a normal population. OBJECTIVES: Investigation of the effectiveness and safety of chemical matricectomy with 10% sodium hydroxide solution for ingrown toenails in patients with diabetes...

OBJECTIVES: Partial nail avulsion with phenol matricectomy is one of the most widely performed procedures for the treatment of ingrowing nails. We compared phenol applications of different durations with respect to efficacy and safety. METHODS: The study included 148 ingrowing nails (grade 2-3) of 110 patients (54 males, 56 females). The patients were randomized to three groups for 1-, 2-, and 3-minute applications of phenol cauterization of the germinal matrix following surgical removal of ingrowing nails...

Treatment of acrodermatitis continua of Hallopeau (ACH) is known to be difficult. A 24-year-old man presented with an 11-year history of recurrent flares of painful pustular and scaly lesions on the distal portion of his fingers and toes, with persistent nail dystrophy. Based on the clinical and histopathological findings, ACH was diagnosed. The patient was treated with topical 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) without occlusion, plus local narrowband ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) phototherapy. The patient did not use any other medication between sessions except topical emollients...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy and safety of retreatment with pimecrolimus in SD patients. METHODS: A total of 45 patients who had been treated previously with pimecrolimus 1% cream were retreated with the same agent using the same treatment protocol after the disease reoccurred...

BACKGROUND: Interleukin-8 (IL-8) has been shown previously to associate with different individual clinical manifestations and activity of Behcet's disease (BD), but its association with vascular involvement has not been established. METHODS: Forty-five untreated patients with BD and 29 healthy individuals were included in the study. The activity of patients was based on the existence of two or more symptoms and a statistically significantly high Behcet's Disease Activity Index (BDAI) at the time of the study...
