BACKGROUND: Vulvar dermatoses are often difficult to classify due to histopathologic overlap. We aimed to report our experience at a single institution. METHODS: A total of 183 non-neoplastic, non-infectious vulvar biopsies were reviewed. Associations between histopathologic features and specific diagnoses were analyzed by Chi-squared tests. RESULTS: Twenty-two biopsies (12.0%) showed two concurrent processes. A limited differential rather than a definitive diagnosis was rendered in 15 cases (8...

Seborrheic dermatitis (SD) is a common skin condition seen frequently in clinical practice. The use of varying terms such as sebopsoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, seborrheic eczema, dandruff, and pityriasis capitis reflects the complex nature of this condition. Despite its frequency, much controversy remains regarding the pathogenesis of SD. This controversy extends to its classification in the spectrum of cutaneous diseases, having being classified as a form of dermatitis, a fungal disease, or an inflammatory disease, closely related with psoriasis...

Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory disease affecting 1-3% of the world's population. Joints can be affected in up to 30% of patients. About one third of patients have either severe or moderate (involving more than 10% of body surface area) disease. Patients affected with extensive psoriasis have an impaired quality of life. Psoriasis has a large spectrum of clinical features and evolution, so no complete agreement on the classification of the clinical variants exists. Plaque psoriasis is the commonest form (more than 80% of affected patients)...

Current possibilities of using antimycotic drugs in the treatment of various skin disorders. The purpose of this article is to review the literature data on the therapeutic protocols and the results of using some antimycotics in different skin diseases. In addition to the antimycotic action, particular antifungal drugs such as itraconazole, ketoconazole and terbinafine exhibit anti-inflammatory activity by inhibiting the synthesis of 5-lipooxygenase metabolites. As these metabolites are involved in a number of inflammatory and immunoreactive processes the dual action of the drugs may be suitably exploited in the treatment of some skin diseases which are otherwise difficult to cure...

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common superficial dermatosis, characterized by red, flaking areas of the skin, which may in some cases be covered with yellowish flakes. The most commonly affected areas are the nasolabial folds, ears, eyebrows, scalp and chest. While seborrheic dermatitis may be easy to recognize clinically, the variability of the lesions in both appearance and location may complicate the diagnosis. Seborrheic dermatitis has been described as resembling psoriasis (in which case, the condition may be called "sebopsoriasis") and, when affecting the eyes or ears, has also been described as blepharitis and otitis, respectively...

After determining the usual malassezic biota of the scalp in adult, normal persons, 259 patients with different desquamative diseases were studied by a simple adhesive tape technique. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the utility of this technique to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Most patients with seborrhoeic dermatitis and sebopsoriasis demonstrated large numbers of Malassezia spp. cells corresponding to the so called "pityrosporosis". Only 43.6% of patients with pityriasis capitis (dandruff) presented with such a diagnosis...

A 71-year-old woman visited our clinic due to the presence of widespread scaly erythema on her face, scalp, and lower extremities. She was tentatively diagnosed as having seborrheic dermatitis but the symptoms were difficult to distinguish from psoriasis vulgaris. As a result, she was diagnosed as having sebopsoriasis. She was treated topically with an active vitamin D3 compound, 1a-24 (R)-dihydroxycholecalciferol D3 (tacalcitol) cream. She applied tacalcitol cream twice daily for 4 weeks, and her facial eruptions thus cleared up completely...

Psoriatic epidermis demonstrates a defective program of growth and differentiation, including an abnormal permeability barrier. Despite the fact that damage to the epidermis often initiates the disease, psoriasis is commonly viewed as triggered by aberrant immune phenomena in deeper skin layers. Permeability barrier homeostasis requires the formation and secretion of lamellar body contents, as well as the extracellular processing of lamellar body contents into lamellar bilayers. To address the hypothesis that psoriasis is triggered by exogenous rather than internal factors, we assessed permeability barrier function, lamellar body structure, and extracellular lamellar bilayer formation in untreated patients with different psoriatic phenotypes...

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common condition that usually appears as simple dandruff. It may affect the scalp, the central part of the face and the anterior portion of the chest, as well as flexural creases of the arms, legs and groin. It occurs most often in infants and in adults between 30 and 60 years of age. Patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome may have particularly resistant cases of seborrheic dermatitis. Diagnosis of this condition is generally straightforward, but the differential diagnosis includes a variety of conditions, such as psoriasis vulgaris (sebopsoriasis), atopic dermatitis, tinea capitis and candidiasis, as well as other, more rare conditions...

1% Bifonazole cream and gel were used for the local therapy of sebopsoriasis and psoriasis in a pilot study with 20 patients. 3 of the 9 patients with psoriasis and 9 of the 11 patients with sebopsoriasis had improved markedly. The mechanisms of the effectiveness of this therapy will be discussed together with the results of some provocation tests with bacterial antigens.

In a biometrically controlled study on psoriatic patients, we investigated the efficacy and tolerability of bifonazole 1% plus urea 20% cream. In each of our ten patients, two lesions were treated over a period of 29 to 40 days (34 days on the average). Therapeutic results were not satisfying with lesions on extremities in comparison to those on head and body. On head and trunk, the size of the lesions amounted to 11.8 and 10.3 cm2, resp., before treatment, 2.8 and 4.3 cm2, resp., after therapy. On the extremities, we only noticed a reduction in size from 15...

9 patients suffering from psoriasis vulgaris associated with sebopsoriasis lesions as well as 21 patients showing sebopsoriasis only were treated with 1% bifonazole cream and gel. We found good and excellent results in 86% of the sebopsoriatic, but only in 40% of the psoriasis vulgaris lesions. These results were achieved independently of the galenic preparation. In some of the sebopsoriasis patients, typical lesions were brought about by intracutaneous injection of bacterial antigens like steptococcus viridans and staphylococcus albus; my be, this is a hint on the etiology...

Bifonazole is a substituted imidazole antifungal agent structurally related to other drugs in this group. It possesses a broad spectrum of activity in vitro against dermatophytes, moulds, yeasts, dimorphic fungi and some Gram-positive bacteria. Both non-comparative and comparative clinical trials have clearly demonstrated the efficacy and safety of various formulations of bifonazole 1% (cream, gel, solution and powder) applied once daily in the treatment of superficial fungal infections of the skin such as dermatophytoses, cutaneous candidiasis and pityriasis versicolor...

Occasionally we observe particular varieties of psoriasis and in rare cases transitional features with other diseases, which pose problems concerning the differential diagnosis and the nosological classification. This communication deals with the following clinical and histological aspects of psoriasis: 1) Sebopsoriasis. Relationship of psoriasis to pityriasis rubra pilaris. 2) Erythema annulare centrifugum type of psoriasis. 3) Is subcorneal pustular dermatosis an expression of pustular psoriasis? 4) Salient histopathological criteria for the diagnosis of the different atypical forms of psoriasis...
