BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Increased interest in antiaging methods, mandates a development of reliable noninvasive technique to assess skin aging. In this study, we aimed to determine the effects of photoaging at histopathologic resolution by means of reflectance confocal microscopy. METHOD The sun-exposed malar area, the anterior aspect of ear lobule, and the(More)
BACKGROUND Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) has been recently shown to be effective for measuring the Demodex mite density. OBJECTIVES To compare and demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of standardized skin surface biopsy (SSSB) and RCM for measuring the density of Demodex mites. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight patients (30 female, 18(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Demodex mite density is emphasised in the aetiopathogenesis of acne rosacea. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) has been shown to be a good method for determining demodex mite density. The objective was to determine demodex mite density using RCM in acne rosacea patients and compare them with controls. METHODS In all, 30(More)
Most authors believe that vestibular papillomatosis (VP) is an anatomical variant of the vestibular mucosa. But VP is sometimes misdiagnosed as genital warts and this can lead to aggressive investigations, therapy, and anxiety in patients. We present a patient with VP. Dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) were performed to differentiate VP(More)
