BACKGROUND Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic and often a recalcitrant inflammatory skin condition. OBJECTIVES To present the results of carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment of recalcitrant HS in nine patients who had failed to improve on medical and other surgical treatments. METHODS HS lesions consisting of abscesses, sinuses and granulation(More)
Nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs), which include basal and squamous cell cancers are the most common human cancers. BCCs have a relatively low metastatic rate and slow growth and are frequently underreported. Whilst there is a definite role of sunexposure in the pathogenesis of BCC, several additional complex genotypic, phenotypic and environmental factors(More)
Surgical excision and radiotherapy for extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) at specific sites such as the groin and genitalia is often inappropriate. An 80-year-old man with histologically proven EMPD of the left groin and scrotum was referred for PDT. The lesion and normal skin thickness were measured by a 20MHz, two-dimensional 'B' ultrasound scanner (US).(More)
BACKGROUND Rhinophyma is a progressive, localized or generalized nasal deformity resulting from hypertrophy of sebaceous and connective tissue. The CO(2) laser has been used for treatment of rhinophyma, but the long-term efficacy of the treatment is unknown. OBJECTIVES To review the outcome of 124 patients with rhinophyma treated with the CO(2) laser(More)
The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs) comprise polymyositis, myositis overlapping with another connective tissue disease, dermatomyositis (DM) and inclusion-body myositis (IBM). IIMs are characterized by the presence of proximal muscle weakness, increased levels of muscle-specific enzymes, specific electromyographic abnormalities, and the presence(More)
The rising incidence and morbidity of non-melanoma skin cancers has generated great interest in unravelling of their pathogenesis and in the search for new non-invasive treatments. Whereas the role of cumulative sun exposure in pathogenesis of squamous-cell carcinoma seems clear, the relation between sun-exposure patterns and subtypes of basal-cell(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of medium-sized congenital melanocytic naevi (CMN) can be challenging. OBJECTIVES To present the results of treatment of 55 CMN with the carbon dioxide (CO(2) ) and pigment-specific lasers. METHOD CO(2) and Q-switched lasers (frequency-doubled Nd:YAG, Nd:YAG and alexandrite) were used to treat 55 CMN. Patients were treated at(More)
