Abstract Background: Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disease. Recent studies have suggested that it is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular comorbidities. Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess and compare arterial stiffness and cardiovascular hemodynamics in patients with lichen planus and a healthy control group. Methods: Fifty-five patients with lichen planus and 42 healthy controls were enrolled. All patients underwent echocardiographic examination, and arterial stiffness was measured using applanation tonometry. Results: No statistically significant difference was deter...

Syringoma is an adnexal tumor typically observed on the periorbital region and readily diagnosed by clinical examination. Eruptive syringoma is a rare variant that is commonly confused with mastocytosis and lichen planus clinically. The diagnosis is generally confirmed by typical histopathological features. Herein, we report two eruptive syringoma cases along with the dermoscopic features. Through our dermoscopic evaluation before skin biopsy, we detected features also reminding that of maculopapular mastocytosis as reticular light brown lines, structureless light-brown areas, and reticular vessels. Additionally, as an add...

Authors: Abstract Vulvar skin disorders include a variety of inflammatory conditions of the vulva that also may affect the extragenital area. Pruritus and pain are two of the most common presenting symptoms in vulvar clinics (). Vulvovaginal symptoms often are chronic and can adversely affect sexual function and sense of well-being. The purpose of this Practice Bulletin is to provide updated diagnostic and management recommendations for the most common vulvar skin conditions associated with inflammation: contact dermatitis, lichen simplex chronicus, lichen sclerosus, and lichen planus. Other vulvovaginal disorder...

Authors: Gissi DB, Gabusi A, Tarsitano A, Asioli S, Rossi R, Marchetti C, Montebugnoli L, Foschini MP, Morandi L Abstract BACKGROUND: A non-invasive sampling procedure for the early detection of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC) based on DNA methylation analysis of a panel of 13 genes was applied in 4 different OSCC risk-group of patients. Aim of the study is to evaluate the between-group differences and the variables related to the methylation profile of each group. METHODS: Oral brushing samples were collected from 54 healthy subjects, 31 Oral Leukoplakia (OL) patients, 18 Oral Lichen Planus (OLP) patients ...
