Interest in sebaceous gland physiology and its diseases is rapidly increasing. We provide a summarized update of the current knowledge of the pathobiology of acne vulgaris and new treatment concepts that have emerged in the last 3 years (2005-2008). We have tried to answer questions arising from the exploration of sebaceous gland biology, hormonal factors,(More)
Eosinophilic ulcer of the oral mucosa is a benign lesion of unclear pathogenesis mostly affecting the tongue. It has been suggested to represent a reactive pattern to several stimuli. We report on a 12-year-old boy who presented with a painless infiltrating ulcer on the gingiva of the lower jaw, which was covered by necrotic yellowish slough. There were no(More)
Age-associated skin lesions linked to UV radiation (UVR) include actinic keratosis, non-melanoma skin cancer-such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma-lentigo senilis and lentigo maligna. Their incidence is increasing worldwide, mainly due to exaggerated UV exposure and to an aging population. Early diagnosis and therapy of pre-malignant(More)
Ichthyoses are a heterogeneous group of cutaneous keratinization disorders that can be congenital or acquired. Apart from neoplastic disorders, the acquired form of ichthyosis (AI) has been associated with a variety of diseases including infections, autoimmune/inflammatory and endocrine/metabolic diseases as well as nutritional conditions, medications and(More)
Age-related skin changes are induced by chronological aging, also known as intrinsic aging, and photoaging or extrinsic aging. Extrinsic skin aging is characterized by elastosis in the upper dermis, destruction of its fibrilar structure, augmented intercellular substance and moderate inflammatory infiltrate. With accelerating age, skin functions deteriorate(More)
BACKGROUND Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) at the early, usually oral and relatively stable stage, represents the majority of PV patients. Treatment modalities usually do not differ compared to those for the fully established disease. OBJECTIVES To prospectively assess a standardized and effective therapeutic approach that aims at less morbidity due to adverse(More)
The results of Primary Prevention programs, aiming at the decrease of melanoma incidence, were less encouraging than those of Secondary prevention which aims at an early diagnosis of malignant melanoma. Australia was the country with the best results obtained in both Prevention strategies, especially in avoiding intense, though intermittent, UV exposure.(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite the impressive increase of knowledge on acne etiology accumulated during the last 20 years, few efforts have been overtaken to introduce new therapeutic regiments targeting the ideal treatment of acne. The increasing emergence of microbial resistance associated with antibiotics, teratogenicity, particularly associated with systemic(More)
