crusted scabies, for which combination therapy of up to seven courses of ivermectin with topical scabicides is recommended. Nail involvement is another cause of recalcitrance, and combined application of topical scabicides with keratolytic agent is recommended. The favorable tissue accessibility contributes to the scabicid concentration of ivermectin on the(More)
Steatocystoma simplex is a rare benign cutaneous cyst that is thought to be a circumscribed malformation arising from the pilosebaceous duct junction. Reports describing steatocystoma simplex are scarce and many issues remain to be clarified, including frequency and age distribution. Steatocystoma simplex is generally considered to be a solitary,(More)
A number of cases of psoriasis vulgaris developing bullous skin lesions have been diagnosed as either bullous pemphigoid with antibodies to the 180-kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen (BP180) non-collagenous 16a (NC16a) domain or anti-laminin-γ1 (p200) pemphigoid. We report a case of subepidermal bullous disease with psoriasis vulgaris, showing antibodies to(More)
Both anti-laminin γ1 pemphigoid and bullous pemphigoid are autoimmune subepidermal blistering diseases. The former is rare and characterized by autoantibodies to laminin γ1, a 200-kDa dermal protein, while the latter is common among the elderly and characterized by autoantibodies to BP180 and BP230, both of which are hemidesmosomal proteins. We experienced(More)
Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease but psoriasis patients with renal impairment undergoing dialysis are not frequently seen. Furthermore, the published work contains little information on the treatment with biologic drugs of patients with end-stage renal disease. We describe a 57-year-old man with refractory plaque-type psoriasis and(More)
Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease is characterized by marked bilateral uveitis associated with symmetric vitiligo, alopecia, poliosis and dysacousia. Linear immunoglobulin (Ig)A bullous dermatosis (LABD) is characterized by small, tense, subepidermal bullae caused by IgA type autoantibody targeting the basal lamina. LABD patients sometimes show coexistence of(More)
BACKGROUND Aberrant Mongolian spots (AMS) distal to the lumbosacral region are thought to be more likely to persist than typical sacral Mongolian spots. So far, Q-switched ruby laser (QSRL) has been the treatment of choice for AMS. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is obtained from flashlamp devices that emit wavelengths between 515 and 1200 nm. IPL has documented(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the established pathogenic role of anti-desmoglein (Dsg) antibodies in classical pemphigus, the significance of autoantibodies to another desmosomal cadherin, desmocollin (Dsc) is at present unknown. No consistent immunoassay for immunoglobulin (Ig) G autoantibodies to Dscs has been developed. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to(More)
