The significance of sun exposure in the pathogenesis of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) was assessed. A total of 262 tumors were studied. Most of the tumors occurred in patients over 40 years of age, with a male to female ratio of 3:2. The majority of tumors were present on the head and neck, mostly on sites maximally exposed to sun. Solar elastosis of varying degrees was recorded in 93% of tumors, some of which occurred in relatively covered areas such as the scalp and trunk. Exposure to ...

It has been clearly demonstrated that cutaneous blood vessels will be selectively damaged by a laser whose wavelength matches one of the three absorption spectral peaks of the chromophore, oxyhemoglobin, for example, 577 nm. A restriction in the application of this wavelength for the treatment of benign cutaneous vascular tumors, such as portwine stains, has been the penetration depth of 577 nm irradiation of approximately 0.5 mm from the dermal epidermal junction (DEJ). This study was ...

Superficial benign cutaneous pigmented lesions that commonly present to the dermatologists and plastic surgeons have been treated by many conventional modalities such as dermabrasion, depigmenting creams as well as several types of lasers. Many of these treatment modalities lack specificity of injury, which has meant that normally pigmented and even non-pigment containing structures such as collagen as well as the hyperpigmented lesion itself have all been indiscriminately destroyed. ...

Several reports have been published over the last two decades describing the successful removal of benign cutaneous pigmented lesions such as lentigines, café au lait macules' nevi, nevus of Ota, and lentigo maligna by a variety of lasers such as the excimer (351 nm), argon (488, 514 nm), ruby (694 nm), Nd:YAG (1060 nm), and CO2 (10,600 nm). Laser treatment has been applied to lesions with a range of pigment depths from superficial lentigines in the epidermis to the nevus of Ota in the ...

The clinical and pathologic presentations of cutaneous leishmaniasis in the various countries of the Middle East are well documented. The defined patterns currently encountered in the region emphasize the rarity of local extension of the infection from the bite site. Between 1970 and 1980 we have seen 24 patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis who acquired the infection in Saudi Arabia. In these patients there were several interesting variations from the hitherto described patterns of ...

Tests designed to measure psychopathological characteristics common to the neurotic population were administered to patients with atopic dermatitis, patients with other dermatological disorders and to a control group of normal individuals. The parameters tested were manifest anxiety, neurosis, extroversion, depression, hypochondriasis and hysteria. The scores were statistically analyzed. The results showed that patients with atopic dermatitis responded significantly differently from ...

Ten patients with portwine stains (PWS) with test sites previously exposed to an argon laser were evaluated and subsequently treated with five pulsed dye (585 nm) laser treatments over a 10 month period. Clinical assessments, skin surface texture analyses using optical profilometry, and light microscopic histological evaluations were performed prior to commencement and at the end of the study in all ten patients. A change in the skin texture with return of skin markings approximating ...

Albino pig skin was exposed to the copper vapor (CVL) and flash-lamp pulsed dye (PDL) lasers at 578 nm with a 3 mm diameter spotsize over a range of fluences until purpura and whitening were first established. The total irradiation time was the parameter that was varied in order for the CVL to reach the desired fluence. The lowest fluence producing each clinical endpoint was designated the threshold fluence: 34 J/cm2 was required to produce purpura using the CVL compared to 7.5 J/cm2 ...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of psoriatic alopecia in psoriatic patients is underwhelming, given the prevalence of psoriasis in the North American population. Recently, a 60-year-old Albanian female, lacking a significant medical history for psoriasis, presented to our clinic with a 1-year history of "dandruff" associated with itch, hair thinning, and histopathologic evidence consistent with prior reports of "psoriatic alopecia."

AN inhibitor of fibrinolysis has recently been found in bovine mesothelium1. Recent experiments in our laboratory, using Todd's technique of fibrinolysis autography2 on normal and traumatized human skin (unpublished results), suggested the possibility that human epidermis contains an inhibitor of fibrinolysis. Experiments were therefore designed to determine if inhibition by the epidermis could be demonstrated.

Behçet's disease is a multifaceted syndrome characterized by oral and genital ulcerations and ocular abnormalities including keratitis, optic neuritis, and uveitis. The disease has multiple systemic associations that include involvement of the gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and central nervous systems as well as the joints, blood vessels, and lungs. Infrequently observed in the Americas and Western Europe, it has been more commonly seen in Turkey and Japan. Human lymphocyte antigen ...

The presence and levels of furocoumarins in several parts of Ficus carica including the milky sap, were investigated. The results show that psoralen and bergapten are the only significant photoactive compounds, and are present in appreciable quantities in the leaf and shoot sap but are not detected in the fruit or its sap. These compounds are more concentrated in the leaf sap compared to the shoot sap. The psoralen levels are several times higher than those of bergapten. Lower ...
