Photodynamic therapy (PDT) and topical imiquimod immunotherapy (TII) are two recently introduced treatment modalities for certain types of basal cell carcinomas (BCC). We present a review of the relevant literature and report our own findings regarding the efficacy and tolerance of PDT and TII in the treatment of BCCs. According to published studies, the cure rates range from 75-95% for PDT and 42-100% for TII, depending on treatment modalities and BCC type. In our observations, 13 patients with nodular or superficial BCCs were treated by PDT using two courses of 3-hour topical application of methyl aminolevulinate, followed by 8 minutes illumination (lambda = 634 rim, e = 37J/cm(2)). Biopsies were taken before and one month after PDT. Side effects including pain and crusting were assessed. Eight patients with superficial BCC were treated by TII using 3 monthly courses each consisting of 3 weekly applications for 3 weeks followed by one week out of treatment. Biopsies were taken before and after 3 months of TII. Adverse reactions including erythema, oozing, ulceration, and crusting were recorded. Clinico-histological cure was obtained in 12/13 PDT cases as assessed after I month, and in 6/8 TII cases after 3 months. Minimal pain during illumination and crust formation were observed in 7/13 and 3/13 PDT cases, respectively. Variable erythema, oozing, ulceration, and crusting were observed in all TII-treated lesions. It is concluded that PDT represents an active and well tolerated alternative treatment for both nodular and superficial BCCs. TII also shows activity, although the tolerance may be poor and cure needs a longer time to be obtained. The final cosmetic appearance was fine following both PDT and TII procedures. Both PDT and TII may leave intact neoplastic aggregates inside the skin. They cannot be clinically perceived, leading to unexpected recurrences. It is stressed that the currently available efficacy information about PDT and TII deals with short term follow-up periods. A 5-year follow-up must be awaited before drawing firm conclusions.

Nail changes occur in about 25% of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) cases. Onycholysis has been reported as the most frequent abnormality in SLE. Nailbed hyperkeratosis may be observed in both SLE and discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE). Involvement of the nail apparatus in DLE is extremely uncommon and never restricted to it. We report on a patient in whom the clinical features on the proximal nailfold were similar to those observed on the skin of a patient with typical DLE. This has, to the best of our knowledge, not yet been reported. The patient also exhibited a very distinctive prominent subungual hyperkeratosis. Interestingly, the patient developed biological alterations suggesting a systematization of the disease. Only a combination of systemic corticoids, retinoids and antimalarials was able to achieve nail improvement and this partial resistance to therapy may be explained by the very unusual subungual hyperkeratosis.

A series of gastro-intestinal diseases exhibits some connection with various cutaneous lesions. Some skin manifestations are clinically or histologically evocative, while others lack specificity. These manifestations can occur in overt digestive disease or be the clue for a silent one. A careful skin examination can thus reveal some inflammatory or neoplastic diseases of the gastro-intestinal tract, a malabsorption syndrome or food intolerance. [less ▲]
