A new approach for treatment of congenital melanocytic nevi with hypertrichosis: the Depilendolaser technique

ConclusionThe authors describe a new laser technique for depigmentation and epilation and their experience in the treatment of CMN with hypertrichosis. Data collected in this study showed first of all an extreme safety and tolerability of the procedure in children and young patients, with no adverse effects such as skin atrophy, pathological scarring and aesthetic improvement.Level of evidence: Level I, therapeutic; risk/prognostic study.

Sema Turker, Ebru Cilbir, Cengiz Karacin, Mustafa AltinbasJournal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics 2020 16(3):690-692 Anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) antibodies are mainly used in the treatment of advanced stages of solid tumors as a targeted therapy to inhibit tumor proliferation. They cause many dermatological adverse reactions through inhibition of EGFR pathway in the skin. A 39-year-old female patient diagnosed with metastatic colon adenocarcinoma received oxaliplatin, fluorouracil, and folinic acid regimen with cetuximab. The patient noticed increase in fairy hair especially at facial area as well as ...

To the Editor: Oral minoxidil has been used with significant improvement in androgenetic alopecia in patients of either sex.1-4 In men with androgenetic alopecia, oral minoxidil has been used alone and in combination with other therapies and in doses varying from 0.25  mg/day to 2.5 to 5 mg/day.2,3 Some of the reported adverse effects of such lower doses of oral minoxidil include lower limb edema, generalized hypertrichosis, hair shedding, urticaria, and other allergic reactions.1-4 In this case series, we share our experience of using oral minoxidil monotherap y at 1.25 mg/day in 32 patients with male androgenetic alopecia.

Most cases of excessive hair loss and unwanted hair growth (e.g., effluvium, alopecia, hirsutism, hypertrichosis) result in part from major disturbances in the cyclic transformation of hair follicles (HFs), namely in their switch from active growth and pigmented hair shaft production (anagen) to apoptosis-driven HF involution (catagen) (Oh et  al., 2016; Paus and Cotsarelis, 1999). It is now clear that this switch is profoundly influenced by complex neuroendocrine pathways, which still await systematic therapeutic targeting (Paus et al., 2014).

Conclusions: Since Cushing's syndrome is a rare disease and it is often diagnosed later in life, data on the frequency of skin findings are limited and sparse in the literature. In the comparison of endogenous Cushing's and exogenous Cushing's groups, acne, hypertrichosis, and fungal infections were found more frequently in the exogenous Cushing's group and hirsutism more frequently in the endogenous Cushing's group.

AbstractBackgroundSkin lesions are very common among organ transplant recipients (OTR), particularly infections and tumors, because of the immunosuppressive state these patients are put in.Methods177 OTR were examined. Skin lesions were categorized into neoplastic, infectious, and inflammatory diseases.ResultsThe mean age of OTR was 52  years, the mean age at transplantation was 42.7 years, and kidney was the most common organ transplanted (72%). Skin lesions were found in 147 patients (83%). Cutaneous infections were seen in 106 patients (60%). Warts (30%) had the larger incidence and were associated with azathi...
