The current treatment of vitiligo is not satisfactory according to the opinions of both the patient population and the dermatologists. Recently, combination therapies have been introduced, which are both systemic and targeted (microphototherapy). To evaluate the effects of topical treatments given alone or in combination with 311-nm narrow-band microphototherapy. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of: (1) 311-nm narrow-band microphototherapy;(2) tacrolimus 0.1% ointment twice a day; ...

OBJECTIVE: This study is a retrospective analysis evaluating the presence of comorbidities, as well as the changes in body weight and clinical parameters in psoriasis patients following treatment with anti-TNF-alpha agents and with the anti-CD11a agent efalizumab.

RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A total of 268 patients affected by chronic plaque psoriasis, and receiving systemic monotherapy with efalizumab, etanercept, or infliximab, were included. The follow-up period was 2, 4 and 6 ...

The major therapeutic approaches (5-fluorouracil, imiquimod, vermilionectomy, and CO(2) Laser ablation) for actinic cheilitis are aimed at avoiding and preventing a malignant transformation into invasive squamous cell carcinoma via destruction/removal of the damaged epithelium. Recently, photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been introduced as a therapeutic modality for epithelial skin tumors, with good efficacy/safety profile and good cosmetic results. Regarding actinic cheilitis, PDT could be ...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a treatment technique that permits the clearance of different skin lesions with high success rates in many dermatological diseases. Worldwide recognized uses for PDT in dermatology include non-melanoma skin cancer, actinic keratoses, acne vulgaris, photorejuvenation, and hidradenitis suppurativa. In the European Union, and in the USA, its indication is for the treatment of nonhyperkeratotic actinic keratoses (AKs) of the face and scalp, for basal cell ...

Psoriasis is a common dermatosis affecting the skin, mucosal surfaces, and cutaneous adnexa, and joints and bones can be involved at some degree in the clinical features of the disease, configuring psoriatic arthritis. Moderate to severe psoriasis has a high impact on quality of life and requires an integrated and long-term treatment schedule. However, management of psoriasis in patients affected by other systemic diseases can be challenging because of the possible side effects or ...

Melasma (cloasma) is a typical hypermelanosis and a common dermatologic skin disease that involves sun-exposed areas of the skin. It mostly affects women of reproductive age. Solar and ultraviolet exposure are the most crucial etiologic factors. Pregnancy, certain endocrine disorders and hormonal treatments, cosmetics, phototoxic drugs, and antiseizure medications are well-known inducing and exacerbating factors. A classification of melasma is based on Wood's light examination, ...

Current vitiligo treatments are not always satisfactory for both patients and dermatologists. Recently, combination therapies have been introduced in order to obtain better results and reduce risks in the management of the disease. Novel efficacious products are needed to improve the therapeutic possibilities of dermatologists in the respect of safety for the patients. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effects of a novel topical in a gel formulation containing ...

Environmental mycobacteria are the causative factors of an increasing number of infections worldwide. Cutaneous infections as a result of environmental mycobacteria are often misdiagnosed, and their treatment is difficult because these agents can show in vivo and in vitro multidrug resistance. The most common environmental mycobacteria that can cause cutaneous infections are Mycobacterium fortuitum and Mycobacterium marinum. All mycobacteria are characterized by low pathogenicity and ...

Emotional tensions in predisposed subjects may play a key role in inducing a pruritic sensation, leading to a scratching that, becoming a self-perpetuating pathomechanism, may represent the main feature of two distinct cutaneous clinical entities: prurigo nodularis and lichen simplex chronicus. Psychogenic factors play a relevant role in both conditions, and they are often associated with depression and dissociative experiences. Hence, the importance of the evaluation of these patients ...

Paraneoplastic syndromes are localized or diffuse pathologic manifestations that may occur in subjects affected by neoplastic diseases, even occult ones. Among the many clinical manifestations of paraneoplastic syndromes, cutaneous ones are quite common. It is estimated that skin manifestations may represent the very first diagnostic sign of a neoplastic disease in about 1% of patients. Many paraneoplastic syndromes with skin manifestations are caused by vascular alterations. In case of ...

This article deals with new and experimental treatments that can be used to treat various forms of depigmenting disorders. Ultraviolet B-focused therapies and new surgical approaches are analyzed in this article. These therapies were mainly or only developed to treat vitiligo, which is the most studied and probably the most challenging of all the hypomelanoses, but the results obtained in trials and clinical experiences about vitiligo sometimes can be referred to other depigmenting disorders.

Vitiligo is a manageable disease. However, current vitiligo treatments can be considered suboptimal as they do not guarantee high efficacy and cannot be standardized for most patients. Recently, combination therapies have been introduced in order to obtain better results and reduce risks in the management of the disease. Novel efficacious products are hereunder discussed to improve the therapeutic options for vitiligo patients.
