INTRODUCTION: Genital involvement is observed in approximately 60% of patients with psoriasis, presenting clinicians with formidable challenges in treatment. While new biologic drugs have emerged as safe and effective options for managing psoriasis, their efficacy in challenging-to-treat areas remains inadequately explored. Intriguingly, studies have shown that interleukin (IL)-17 inhibitors exhibit effectiveness in addressing genital psoriasis. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to determine the effectiveness profile of bimekizumab in patients affected by moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis with involvement of genitalia...

Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a surgical procedure aimed to detect nodal metastases in patients with clinically occult disease. Since the advent of new systemic therapies, its role in melanoma has been extensively debated over the last years. In this article, three possible scenarios are discussed, considering the SLNB impact on the management of melanoma patients. First, pT1b and pT2a patients with negative SLNB (stages IA and IB) and those with positive SLNB (stage IIIA) would all not benefit from adjuvant treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Although trichoscopy has been used successfully in the diagnosis of androgenetic alopecia (AGA), its utility in monitoring the therapeutic outcome is not clear. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the value of trichoscopy in the follow-up of treatment response in patients with AGA. METHODS: Ninety-five patients with AGA were included. Trichoscopic images were obtained on a 1 cm2 circular area in the left frontoparietal scalp pre- and post-treatment in all and in 61 patients, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Vitiligo is thought to be an autoimmune disorder caused by melanocytes dysfunction and depigmentation. Among different executors of the immune system in developing the disease, the role of various cytokines has been defined. OBJECTIVES: We have focused on IL-38, the tenth member of IL-1 cytokine family with a proposed anti-inflammatory role, which has not hitherto been introduced as an anti-inflammatory factor in vitiligo. METHODS: Sixty-nine generalized vitiligo patients and 72-year-old- and sex-matched healthy individuals were included in this study...

INTRODUCTION: Many topical drugs are used in the treatment of erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR). However, dapsone 5% gel has never been used in ETR to date. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of dapsone 5% gel as a new treatment option for ETR. METHODS: Thirty-five patients with ETR were included in the study. Diagnosis was made with National Rosacea Society criteria. Dapsone 5% gel was used topically twice a day for 12 weeks. Investigator Global Assessment (IGA) 4-point scale ( 0 → Clean, 1 → mild, 2 → moderate, 3 → severe, 4 → very severe), Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) were used for evaluation (at baseline, 2nd, 6th, and 12th weeks)...

INTRODUCTION: Pityriasis versicolor (PV) often exhibits recurrence even despite treatment, and a standardized therapy with a complete cure rate remains elusive. Given the fungicidal property of amphotericin B, its potential for PV treatment warrants investigation. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to compare the efficacy of topical liposomal amphotericin B and clotrimazole cream in treating PV. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial was conducted with 44 PV patients, aged 15 to 70 years, who were equally assigned to either the amphotericin or clotrimazole group...
