Classification of the primary cicatricial alopecias on the basis of pathology provides a diagnostic and investigational framework and, it is hoped, will facilitate future enlightenment. Expand
Primary cicatricial alopecias: clinicopathology of 112 cases.
TLDR
It is suggested that a scalp biopsy is mandatory in all cases and an aggressive multiple modality therapeutic approach is often necessary to prevent further irreversible follicular destruction, implying cicatrical alopecia should be considered a trichologic emergency. Expand
The pattern and profile of alopecia areata in Singapore – a study of 219 Asians
Background Alopecia areata is believed to be an autoimmune condition with a worldwide occurrence. It usually presents as patchy, nonscarring hair loss. There is a paucity of clinical data in Asians.
A Clinical Study of Childhood Alopecia Areata in Singapore
TLDR
For limited AA, topical and/or intralesional corticosteroid was the first‐line treatment used and squaric acid dibutyl ester was the choice of treatment for patients with extensive involvement, and the profile of the poor respondents to therapy included young age of onset, past history of AA, Down syndrome, and extensive involvement.

A randomized bilateral vehicle-controlled study of eflornithine cream combined with laser treatment versus laser treatment alone for facial hirsutism in women.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the addition of eflornithine to laser hair removal results in a more rapid and complete reduction of unwanted facial hair in women when the combination is used for up to 6 months. Expand
Non‐ablative 1,450‐nm diode laser treatment of striae distensae
TLDR
The aim is to evaluate the efficacy of the 1,450‐nm diode laser in the treatment of striae rubra and striae alba in Asian patients with skin types 4–6. Expand
Retrospective study of Behcet's disease seen at the National Skin Centre, Singapore.

Photodynamic therapy with 20% aminolevulinic acid for the treatment of recalcitrant viral warts in an Asian population
TLDR
Topical photodynamic therapy is well established for the treatment of actinic keratoses and superficial nonmelanoma skin cancers and good efficacy when using PDT to treat viral warts in the Western population is reported. Expand
