żul K Abstract Treatment of skin conditions with medicinal plants has been an ongoing human activity lasting over thousands of years. The use of specific plant species developed regionally, based on local flora. Commonly used medicinal plants for dermatological complaints are: Phlebodium aureum (L.) J. Sm., Ginkgo biloba L., Rosmarinus officinalis L., Panax ginseng C.A.Mey., Allium cepa L., Aloe vera (L.) Burm.f., Capsicum annuum L., Berbe ris aquifolium Pursh, Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze, and Podophyllum peltatum L. The demand for complementary therapeutics is an emerging trend due to the awareness of potential...
This article describes the features of podophyllotoxin, utilized in diluted solution as podofilox, a topical treatment for external genital warts, such as condylomata acuminata.
This study was based on patients with clinical manifestations of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and a control group of patients with psoriasis who were admitted over a period of one year to the Dermatology Department of Karlovac General Hospital. A total of 122 patients participated in the study, either with a confirmed diagnosis of clinical manifestations of HPV infection (n=66) or in a psoriasis control group (n=56). The aim of this study was to determine which coping strategies are used in patients with clinical manifestations of HPV infection. We used the Recent Life Changes Questionnaire and Brief COPE test for ...
Authors: Köhn FM Abstract During complete inspection of skin a variety of penile skin alterations may be found. Not all dermatological findings have clinical relevance. Pearly papules and heterotopic sebaceous glands are physiological variations. Most penile melanotic macules, angiokeratoma, fibroma and angioma have not to be treated. However, other more severe diseases such as malignant skin lesions (erythroplasia of Queyrat), infectious disease (human papillomavirus-induced penile warts) or systemic skin diseases (psoriasis) may be detected. Since patients are alarmed by genital skin lesions and their s...
CONCLUSIONS: The diagnoses made were described, including their associations with non-circumcision and atopy. Several of these observations have not been recognised before in the literature. We discuss lessons learned in the management of male genital disease and its psychosocial impact. PMID: 27170096 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: This study provides greater knowledge of dermatological diseases in prison and shows teledermatology to be a tool suited to the specific constraints of this universe, while providing inmates with medical care as close as possible to that of the general population, and it thus helps ensure that their fundamental human rights are upheld.

Sonia P Jain, Sachin Gulhane, Neha Pandey, Esha BisneIndian Journal of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and AIDS 2015 36(2):201-203Psoriasis is an autoimmune chronic inflammatory skin disease known to be triggered by streptococcal and HIV infections. However, human papilloma virus infection (HPV) as a triggering factor for the development of psoriasis has not been reported yet. We, hereby report a case of plaque type with inverse psoriasis which probably could have been triggered by genital warts (HPV infection) and discuss the possible pathomechanisms for their coexistence and its management.
This paper gives a short review on the function, pharmacokinetics, and therapeutic application of recombinant interferon-gamma (rIFN-gamma) in dermatology. Simultaneously, our own experiences are presented for 57 patients (phase II study) suffering from genital warts (21 patients), psoriatic arthritis (10 patients), psoriasis vulgaris (three patients), malignant melanoma (six patients), bowenoid papulosis (four patients), Behcet's disease (four patients), basal cell carcinoma (six patents), as well as herpes simplex recidivans, epidermodysplasia verruciformis, and mycosis fungoides (one patient each).
