Treatment of eruptive vellus hair cysts (EVHC) is often unsatisfactory. Laser treatment has been described as an adequate treatment in a few reports. Pulsed carbon dioxide (CO(2)) laser has been used effectively for facial EVHC and erbium:yttrium-aluminium-garnet laser has been used to treat truncal EVHC with variable outcomes. We report our experience with(More)
Imiquimod is a topically active imidazoquinoline immunomodulator agent. It works as an indirect antiviral and antitumoral and stimulates the production of INF-alpha and various other cytokines. We assayed topical imiquimod in treating early stages of mycosis fungoides. We applied imiquimod 5% cream in four patients with multi-treatment resistant plaques of(More)
BACKGROUND Actinic cheilitis (AC) is a precancerous lesion of the lip. Treatment of AC is indicated for prevention of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), although the exact transition rate of AC to SCC is unknown. Carbon dioxide (CO(2)) laser vaporization seems to be an adequate therapy for AC, but there are no references about the evolution rate of AC to SCC(More)

Although previous studies detected no higher morbidity for dermatological surgery in senior patients, their exclusion from optimal surgical treatment remains as a common clinical practice. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to(More)
BACKGROUND Ulceration is the most common complication of infantile haemangiomas and constitutes an authentic therapeutic challenge because of associated pain, infection, haemorrhage and subsequent scarring. OBJECTIVE To report our experience with an intense pulsed light (IPL) system in the treatment of ulcerated haemangiomas. METHODS Case 1: A(More)
Lichenoid drug eruptions can mimic idiopathic lichen planus and other dermatoses. The list of drugs that can cause them is long and growing steadily. Although cutaneous side effects of antipsychotics are rare, various cutaneous manifestations have been reported in association with olanzapine. We present the case of a patient who developed an atypical(More)
