BACKGROUND   Scientific productivity is closely related to gross income, population, and cultures of the countries. Every country, more or less, has a responsibility of contributing to science. MATERIALS AND METHODS The publications, citations received, and the h-index under the category of "dermatology" in 43 journals between the years of 1999-2003 and(More)
Bacillary angiomatosis (BA) is an infectious disease which occurs predominantly in immunosuppressive patients and rarely in immunocompetent individuals. We had a case of BA who presented with a red cutaneous nodule on his left leg of which histopathological examination revealed marked lobular proliferation of capillaries throughout the interstitium and(More)
BACKGROUND Nail involvement morphologically resembling onychomycosis frequently accompanies psoriatic lesions. The role of psoriasis as a predisposing factor for onychomycosis and the possible influence of psoriasis on responsiveness of onychomycosis to treatment are controversial. AIM To investigate the frequency of onychomycosis, the aetiological agents(More)
BACKGROUND Plantar warts are refractory to any form of treatment. High cure rates have been reported with a topical proprietary formulation consisting of 1% cantharidin, 5% podophyllotoxin and 30% salicylic acid (CPS). However, no data exists comparing the efficacy of this formulation with another treatment. Cryotherapy is a method that is also widely used(More)
BACKGROUND Dermoscopy is a useful method allowing the non-invasive visualization of dermal and epidermal structures. OBJECTIVE To determine the scientific output in dermoscopy between 1985 and 2009 using ISI Web of Knowledge. METHODS The ISI Web of Knowledge was searched for articles on dermoscopy published between 1985 and 2009 using appropriate terms.(More)
IMPORTANCE Nodular melanoma (NM) is a rapidly progressing potentially lethal skin tumor for which early diagnosis is critical. OBJECTIVE To determine the dermoscopy features of NM. DESIGN Eighty-three cases of NM, 134 of invasive non-NM, 115 of nodular benign melanocytic tumors, and 135 of nodular nonmelanocytic tumors were scored for dermoscopy(More)
Several studies have shown the value of dermatoscopy in the treatment of basal cell carcinoma and lentigo maligna; however, the efficacy of various treatments for actinic keratoses (AK) has been evaluated mostly by clinical examination. In this study, we aimed to assess the usefulness of dermatoscopy in monitoring the progress of AK treated with imiquimod.(More)
OBJECTIVE Reliable assessment of severity in nail psoriasis is essential to document treatment responses in clinical trials and routine clinical usage. In this study the correlation between Nail Psoriasis Severity Index (NAPSI) and Cannavo's scoring system was assessed, and inter-rater correlation of NAPSI scores were evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Acne vulgaris is a multifactorial disease of the skin. Several studies have shown that elevated levels of serum insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) correlate with overproduction of sebum and acne. Recently functional relationship between IGF-I (CA) polymorphism and circulating IGF-I levels in adults has been reported. AIMS The aim of our study(More)
