Guidelines for the management of actinic keratoses
These guidelines stemmed from a consensus meeting held by the British Photobiology Group (BPG) in 1999 and were reviewed and discussed by the contributors to the BPG Workshop (see Acknowledgments ).

Keratin expression in pilosebaceous epithelia in truncal skin of acne patients
IF techniques were found to be less sensitive than the IP method in the detection of individual keratins, but the use of multiple antibodies and many different transverse and longitudinal sections of follicles permitted full conclusions to be made.
Treatment of the depressed and dysmorphophobic acne patient
Sixteen patients with minimal facial acne but with symptoms of dysmorphophobia related to their acne were treated with isotretinoin, 0.5 mg/kg/day, for 16 weeks, and formal psychiatric assessment was not possible through lack of cooperation.
Comparison of techniques for the non‐invasive assessment of skin tumours
In 24 patients with malignant melanoma there was a significant positive correlation between the value for dermal expansion obtained by ultrasound A‐scan measurement and the histological depth of the lesion.
A double‐blind evaluation of topical isotretinoin 0.05%, benzoyl peroxide gel 5% and placebo in patients with acne
A double‐blind, randomized study comparing isotretinoin gel (Isotrex‐®), its vehicle base, and benzoyl peroxide was performed on 77 patients with mild to moderate acne vulgaris.
Doppler ultrasound as an adjunct to the differential diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions
This simple test has been sufficiently reliable to prove a useful adjunct in the diagnosis of raised pigmented skin lesions and has been found particularly helpful in the common clinical problem of differentiation of nodular melanoma from basal cell papilloma and benign intradermal naevus.
Clinical improvement in Darier's disease with photodynamic therapy
A patient with Darier's disease successfully treated with photodynamic therapy was trialled with significant clinical improvement in her cutaneous symptoms and signs that was maintained for over 27 months.
