AIM We aimed to identify insulin resistance and its possible association with types, duration and severity of psoriasis, and to evaluate various simple insulin-sensitivity indices and beta-cell function in psoriasis. METHODS A cross-sectional study was performed in 110 non-obese adults (18-50 years old): 70 with psoriasis (53 type I, 17 type II psoriasis)(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) in women is characterized by diffuse thinning in the frontal and parietal areas of the scalp; preservation of the frontal hairline is norm. Hair over the occipital scalp is preserved. The purpose of this work was to investigate the findings of phototrichogram (PTG) of the affected and the spared areas in women(More)
We aimed to identify the association of female androgenetic alopecia with insulin resistance and to evaluate various simple insulin sensitivity indices and beta cell function in women with androgenetic alopecia (AGA). A cross-sectional study was performed in 66 non-obese women (24-44 years old), 41 with AGA alone and 25 healthy individuals. Blood glucose,(More)
Environmental fungi, in particular primary pathogens and Cryptococcus spp. can be responsible for skin lesions mimicking sporotrichosis. In this paper, we report a case of subcutaneous cryptococcosis in an apparently healthy, young male patient due to a non-C. neoformans Cryptococcus species, C. diffluens. The isolate showed in vitro phenotypic switching(More)
BACKGROUND Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is characterized by diffuse thinning of hair in the frontal and parietal areas of the scalp, and preservation of the frontal hairline is the norm. Hair on the occipital scalp is thought to be preserved. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the occipital area is involved in FPHL or whether there is a diffuse type of(More)
Juvenile colloid milium is extremely rare, has its onset before puberty, may be inherited, may be caused by ultraviolet light, and is thought to result from the degeneration of keratinocytes. We report a 7-year-old girl with juvenile colloid milium. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case in Turkey.
Myxoid cysts of fingers and toes are observed frequently on the lateral or dorsal aspects of the distal digits. They are usually solitary nodules. Both subungual localization and multiplicity are quite rare. We present a 74-year-old woman with digital subungual mucous cysts located on all toes.
Eccrine spiradenoma is an uncommon tumour of the sweat gland(s) and generally occurs as a solitary small painful nodule. Very rarely, it may present as multiple tumours arranged in a linear/blaschkoid pattern. An 8-year-old girl had many papulonodular lesions, arranged in a linear pattern on the left half of the face, involving the forehead and lateral side(More)
