BACKGROUND Intradermal botulinum toxin (Btx) produces long-lasting relief of focal hyperhidrosis, but its mechanism of action is poorly understood. OBJECTIVE To study the effect of Btx A on the size and innervation of sweat glands in patients with palmar hyperhidrosis. METHODS Palmar skin biopsy was performed in 26 hyperhidrotic patients before scheduled Btx treatment and in 11 controls. Twelve of the patients also underwent biopsy 1 to 6 months after the Btx injections. Sweat gland… CONTINUE READING
