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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
The reticulohistiocytoses are a rare group of non-Langerhans cell histiocytic disorders. Recently, dermatoscopic features have been reported for some of the xanthomatous disorders. We report a case of diffuse cutaneous reticulohistiocytosis with 29 reticulohistiocytomas. On dermatoscopy of these lesions, we saw three typical features: a homogeneous pattern(More)
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)
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)
