BACKGROUND Autologous platelet-rich plasma has attracted attention in various medical fields recently, including orthopedic, plastic, and dental surgeries and dermatology for its wound healing ability. Further, it has been used clinically in mesotherapy for skin rejuvenation. OBJECTIVE In this study, the effects of activated platelet-rich plasma (aPRP)(More)
BACKGROUND Aquaporins (AQPs) are a family of water transporting proteins present in many mammalian epithelial and endothelial cell types. Among the AQPs, AQP3 is known to be a water/glycerol transporter expressed in human skin. OBJECTIVE The relationship between the expression level of AQP3 and transpidermal water loss (TEWL) in the lesional and(More)
BACKGROUND Epigenetic modulation of gene expression occurs by various methods, including DNA methylation and histone modification. DNA methylation of specific genes may affect the chromatin structure, preventing access by the transcriptional machinery. Although gene expression is dramatically changed during keratinocyte differentiation, there is no evidence(More)
Classic Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a rare human herpes virus 8-associated angioproliferative disease, and the disseminated classic type of KS in Korea is even rarer. The treatment options for classic KS vary and range from surgical excision to ionizing irradiation or chemotherapy. Recently, there have been a few reports of treating classic KS with paclitaxel,(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis (AD) patients suffer from xerosis. Proper skin care, including the use of emollients, may help improve xerosis and minimize disease exacerbation. Lactobacillus sakei probio 65, isolated from the Korean vegetable-based product kimchi, can decrease interleukin 4 and immunoglobulin E levels and inhibit Staphylococcus aureus.(More)
Imatinib mesylate (Gleevec™, STI571), a selective inhibitor of BCR-ABL, c-Kit, and platelet-derived factor receptor, has been used to treat chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Although its use has been associated with various adverse cutaneous reactions, pityriasis rosea-like drug eruptions are rare. Here, we report a(More)
Trastuzumab (Herceptin), a humanized monoclonal antibody, is a cancer drug developed to target the human epidermal receptor (HER) 2, which is overexpressed in some cancer cells. Cutaneous side effects, such as folliculitis, xerosis, and alopecia have not been reported with therapies targeting HER2, in spite of the frequent observances of such with the(More)
A 28-year-old Asian male was referred for dermatologic evaluation of diffuse bluish-red maculopapules in the lower trunk and genital regions. There was no family history, and with the exception of dispersed skin lesions and hypohidrosis, no other complaints or symptoms were present. Histological evaluation of the skin lesions revealed angiokeratomas. When(More)
The principles determining the primary localization of lesions in fixed drug eruption (FDE) are still unknown. Studies investigating the predilection areas in FDE have indicated drug-related, trauma-related, or inflammation-related specific site involvement, as well as visceracutaneous reflex-related specific site involvement. The importance of(More)
Pseudocyst of the scalp is described in the Japanese literature as a skin-colored cystic tumor localized on the forehead, whereas alopecic and aseptic nodules of the scalp are described in the French literature as asymptomatic nodules on the scalp that lack a pseudocyst-like architecture. The etiology of these diseases is unknown, but the lesions are likely(More)
