Hyaluronic acid (HA) plays multifaceted role in regulating various biological processes and maintaining homeostasis into the body. Huriez syndrome, also referred to as "sclerotylosis," is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis characterized by the triad of congenital scleroatrophy of the distal extremities, palmoplantar keratoderma, and hypoplastic nails. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can be used to treat large fields of actinic keratoses (AKs) with high clearance rates. Raman spectroscopy (RS) has demonstrated great potential for in vivo cancer screening; however, the biophysical changes that occur for specific diagnoses remain unclear. Introduction: Dermatologists of many foreign countries have been successfully using and developing dermatoscopy as a method of early diagnosis of skin tumors for three decades. Many antihypertensive drugs (ADs) are photosensitizing, heightening reactivity of the skin to sunlight. Topical tretinoin cream is the gold standard treatment for skin aging, particularly photoaging. In Germany, approximately 2 to 3 million employees work in outdoor professions. Clues in the stratum corneum (SC) can aide in histopathologic diagnosis of many conditions.To determine if SC configuration and thickness could help differentiate the lichenoid dermatoses.A retrospective study was performed. Skin diseases affect 30-70% of the world population, and globally, skin cancer rates are continuously increasing. Superluminescent diodes (sLED) appear to be an innovative and promising light source in photodynamic therapy (PDT), especially in actinic keratosis (AK) lesions treatment.Assessment of tolerability and efficacy of sLED in topical 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) PDT of AK lesions.27 Lentigo maligna (LM) is an in situ subtype of melanoma, clinically presenting as a pigmented, asymmetric macule that originates mostly on the head and neck and spreads slowly. Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is a rare inflammatory lymphocyte-mediated disease of the scalp considered to have an autoimmune pathogenesis.To identify the prevalence of medical comorbidities in patients with classic LPP (CLPP) and frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA).The medical records of 206 LPP patients and 323 control patients were retrospectively reviewed for existing comorbidities. Skin biopsy for AK diagnosis is usually performed on only a limited part of the whole lesion. Aminolevulinate-based photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) selectively eliminates diseased tissues primarily through the induction of intrinsic apoptotic pathway. Actinic keratosis (AK) is a sun-induced skin lesion that may progress to invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. Topical photodynamic therapy is an established treatment modality for various dermatological conditions, including actinic keratosis. The boundaries between actinic keratosis (AK), Bowen's disease (BD), and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) are sometimes not clear.
