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)
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)
A 57-year-old male had been suffering from an itchy map-shaped symmetrical erosive erythema with a crust that was attached to his upper arm and buttock, and occasionally he suffered from spiking fever. Laboratory examinations showed neither anti-desmoglein 1/3 antibodies nor anti-BP 180 antibodies, and he fulfilled the criteria for a diagnosis of systemic(More)
BACKGROUND Many case reports have described the coexistence of autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBDs) and psoriasis. Among them, anti-laminin γ1 (p200) pemphigoid is the best known. OBJECTIVES We sought to characterize patients with AIBDs and psoriasis and to investigate common AIBDs occurring in these patients. METHODS This retrospective study included(More)
