Behçet's disease is a chronic relapsing multisystemic inflammatory disorder characterized by four major symptoms (oral aphthous ulcers, genital ulcers, skin lesions, and ocular lesions) and occasionally by five minor symptoms (arthritis, gastrointestinal ulcers, epididymitis, vascular lesions, and central nervous system symptoms). Although the etiology of(More)
BACKGROUND The nonablative 1,550-nm erbium-doped fractional photothermolysis system (FPS) has been effectively used for scar treatments, but it seems that several sessions of treatment must be delivered to achieve satisfactory improvement. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combined use of two treatment modes of an ablative 10,600-nm(More)
In Asian patients, ablative laser therapies are seldom used to treat burn scars due to posttreatment dyschromia, especially when nonfacial areas are treated. The non-ablative 1550-nm erbium-doped fractional photothermolysis system, although effective, requires multiple treatment sessions. In the authors hands, a 34-year-old Korean woman achieved improved(More)
BACKGROUND Adequate laser settings in the treatment of scars using a carbon dioxide fractional laser system (CO(2) FS) have not been established. OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy and safety of low-fluence, high-density with high-fluence, low-density treatment with CO(2) FS on acne scars and enlarged pores. METHODS Ten patients with mild to severe(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of syringoma aims to destroy the dermal tumor using methods that can include surgical excision, electrodessication, cryosurgery, chemical peeling, and laser ablation, but complete removal of syringomas is often unsuccessful, and recurrence occurs frequently. OBJECTIVE To investigate the therapeutic efficacy of an ablative 10,600-nm(More)
BACKGROUND Pinhole method has been used to treat various types of scars and dermal tumors by making multiple small holes in target tissues of the deep dermis using an ablative 10,600-nm carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. OBJECTIVES We prospectively investigated the efficacy and safety of using a CO2 laser to treat periorbital syringomas via the pinhole method.(More)
Keratosis pilaris (KP) has beenpresented as small keratotic follicular papules with or without surrounding erythema. Various treatments with laser or light therapy have been used for the management of KP with various clinical outcomes. In the present study, we investigated the efficacy and safety of a combination therapy for KP. A total of 29 anatomical(More)
Behçet's disease (BD) is a chronic, multisystemic vasculitis that theoretically affects all sizes and types of blood vessels. Although pathogenesis remains enigmatic, endothelial cells are believed to be the primary target in this disease. We detected the target protein using western blotting and immunoprecipitation and determined the amino-acid sequence of(More)
BACKGROUND S100A12 is a member of the S100 family of calcium-binding proteins and is secreted either in inflamed tissues or in the bloodstream by activated neutrophils. Expression of S100A12 has been reported in various diseases, especially non-infectious inflammatory diseases, such as Kawasaki disease, giant cell arteritis and inflammatory bowel disease.(More)
