We herein present the imaging findings in a case of diffuse primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma of the cranial vault with orbital and brain invasion. MR imaging revealed first concomitant orbital and parenchymal invasion in a case of primary diffuse non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the cranial vault. Contrast-enhanced MR imaging revealed a diffuse mass in the scalp of(More)
OBJECTIVES Chronic urticaria (CU) is a common disease in which pathogenesis is unclear and which is resistant to therapy. Recent investigations have indicated that autoimmunity plays a role in nearly one third of CU patients. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I and class II antigens and(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Low levels of vitamin D may play a role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis and is related to increased risk of osteoporosis. There are a few studies showing increased rate of osteoporosis in patients with psoriasis; however, none of them investigated impact of vitamin D levels and gender status together. We aimed to evaluate relationship(More)
Class I human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-B51 is well known to be associated with Behcet's disease in many ethnic groups. However, there has been no published paper with respect to its association with HLA class I and class II among the Turkish people who live in the eastern region of Turkey.

Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is an uncommon disease manifested as an erythematous pustular eruption. It is usually caused by systemic medication. We describe a patient with acute generalized pustular eruption induced by iohexol. A 52-year-old woman developed fever and a generalized pustular eruption on the neck, trunk and extremities(More)
There are only a few case reports about nail changes due to valproic acid in the literature despite its widespread use. We present a 50-year-old man who had onycholysis, roughness of the nail surface and brownish-yellow discoloration of both fingernails and toenails, which remarkably ameliorated upon cessation of valproic acid.
Lichen planus (LP) is a common, pruritic and inflammatory disease of the skin, hair follicles and mucous membranes. Immunologic mechanisms, especially cell-mediated immunity, play a major role in triggering the clinical expression of the disease. P-selectin is an adhesion molecule present within endothelial cells and mediates endothelial-leukocyte(More)
