Photo-induced aging is a natural part of the aging process, but represents a common complaint of both medical and cosmetic dermatology patients. There are many photonumeric grading scales used to assess photo-induced aging, including several based on ethnicity (Caucasians, Asians), and cosmetic units of the face (1), however those specifically validated for older men are lacking. Current photonumeric scales were created using predominantly female subjects age 45 and younger (2-4). Our study sought to evaluate the inter-rater reliability of commonly used photonumeric grading scales in a population of elderly male subjects...

BACKGROUND: Acne is a chronic dermatological disease predominantly afflicting young adults and is often associated with the development of scars. Acne scarring is usually avoidable when acne is managed early and effectively. However, acne patients often fail to seek early treatment. New and innovative tools to raise awareness are needed. OBJECTIVE: This study presents the development and assessment of a tool aiming to assess the risk of atrophic acne scars. METHODS: A systematic literature review of clinical risk factors for acne scars, a Delphi-like survey of dermatological experts in acne and secondary data analysis were conducted in order to produce an evidence-based risk assessment tool...

BACKGROUND: Current treatment of bullous pemphigoid (BP) is based on the long-term use of topical and/or systemic corticosteroids associated with a high rate of adverse events and increased mortality. OBJECTIVE: To study the corticosteroid-sparing potential of azathioprine and dapsone. METHOD: A prospective, multicenter, randomized, non-blinded clinical trial that compares efficacy and safety of two parallel groups of BP patients treated with oral methylprednisolone 0...

BACKGROUND: Australia's health disparity, combined with evolving technologies, has evoked increasing interest and funding in health services that could address inequities. One such emerging service is tele-medicine. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this report is to discuss and evaluate the current literature regarding patient and practitioner satisfaction with tele-medicine, and more specifically tele-dermatology. METHODS: We searched for literature relevant to tele-dermatology use among Australia's indigenous population...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of allelic polymorphism of the FLG and MTHFR genes and their associations in gynecological patients with ichthyosis vulgaris. Gynecological disorders are observed in presence of some forms of ichtyosis. From the prospective of improving nation's healthcare, the greatest attention is drawn to reproductive disorders. Based on this, the research was also tasked with studying of the genetic nature of gynecological diseases, as well as the influence of geographical latitude on the frequencies of mutagenic alleles of the FLG gene and heterogeneous carriers of these mutations...

BACKGROUND: According to the World Health Organization criteria, geriatric population is people above 60 years of age. In this phase of life, a woman has already gone through menopause and its associated emotional, physical, and hormonal changes. These changes are due to gradual loss of estrogen that comes with menopause which results in dramatic changes in the appearance of vulva and vagina. With age, skin of vulva becomes thin, loses elasticity, and moisture so that the patient starts feeling burning and itchy sensation...

Mass cytometry by time-of-flight experiments allow analysis of over 40 functional and phenotypic cellular markers simultaneously at the single-cell level. The data dimensionality escalation accentuates limitations, inherent to manual analysis, as being subjective, labor-intensive, slow, and often incapable of showing the detailed features of each unique cell within populations. The subsequent challenge of examining, visualizing, and presenting mass cytometry data has motivated continuous development of dimensionality reduction methods...

BACKGROUND: Spitz nevi are uncommon melanocytic neoplasms found in children. Historically, the diagnosis and management of these tumors has lacked consensus among oncologists, pathologists, plastic surgeons, and dermatologists. Once interpreted and treated as a "juvenile melanoma", many have argued for the benignancy of such tumors in certain patient age groups, encouraging a conservative approach. The lack of consensus surrounding the diagnosis and perceived malignant potential of these tumors has led physicians to approach them on a case-by-case basis and institutional protocols...

BACKGROUND: Since July 2015, Lebanon has been experiencing a waste management crisis. Dumpsites in inhabited areas and waste burning have emerged due to the waste accumulation, further adding to the gravity of the situation. However, the association between the crisis and health of the population has not been scientifically reported. METHODS: A comparative cross-sectional study was conducted to assess whether exposure to open dumpsites and waste burning is associated with acute health symptoms...

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.

BackgroundThe recent WHO burden of disease project showed that the non-fatal skin disease related burden is high, but also that prevalence rates of many common skin diseases are not well documented. The aim of this study is to give an overview of (untreated) skin diseases in a population based sample of elderly.MethodsIn 2010, a full body skin examination (FBSE) was embedded in the Rotterdam Study, a prospective population based cohort study of an elderly white-skinned population in the Netherlands. The examination was conducted by a dermatology-trained physician and focused on most common skin diseases (e...

BACKGROUND: Incidence of skin cancer is rising in Hispanic populations and minorities often have more advanced disease and experience higher mortality rates. Community health worker (CHW) programs to promote primary and secondary prevention show promise for many diseases, but an adequate training program in skin cancer prevention is not documented. We present a model for CHW specialty certification in skin cancer prevention for underserved, Hispanic communities. METHODS: We designed a culturally appropriate CHW training program according to an empowerment model of education for skin cancer prevention and detection in underserved Hispanic communities...

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a disease of enormous socio-economic impact. Despite approval of numerous highly efficient and costly therapies, a minor proportion of severely affected patients actually receives sufficient treatment.
