  Paraphenylene diamine hair dye poisoning in an adolescent.
Abdelraheem M, Ali el-T, Hussien R, Zijlstra E.
Toxicol Ind Health. 2011 Nov;27(10):911-3.

PPD in its pure form is available in the local market and until recently there was no restrictions for its use or trade. Adolescents are well aware of its toxic effects and it is commonly used to attempt suicide. Legislation and laws should prevent its use in different hair dye formulations and look for another substitute. Clinical management is hampered by the lack of a rapid diagnostic test; no other treatment other than supportive measures can be offered.  Read More...

Chemical peels for melasma in dark-skinned patients.
Sarkar R, Bansal S, Garg VK.
J Cutan Aesthet Surg. 2012 Oct;5(4):247-53.

in darker races, the choice of the  peeling agent becomes relatively limited; so, there is the need for priming agents and additional maintenance peels. Although a number of new agents have come up, there is little published evidence supporting their use in day-to -day practice. The traditional glycolic peels prove to be the best both in terms of safety  as well as efficacy. Lactic acid peels being relatively inexpensive and having shown equally good results in a few studies, definitely need further experimentation.  We also recommend the use of a new peeling agent, the easy phytic solution, which does not require neutralisation unlike the traditional alpha-hydroxy peels.

Rasheed H, Mahgoub D, Hegazy R, El-Komy M, Abdel Hay R, Hamid MA, Hamdy E.
Skin Pharmacol Physiol. 2013 Feb 20;26(2):101-107.

The contribution of teledermatoscopy to the diagnosis and management of non-melanocytic skin tumours.
Senel E, Baba M, Durdu M.
J Telemed Telecare. 2013 Feb 19.

The reliability increased significantly when dermatoscopy was added, to 0.86 and 0.88 respectively (P < 0.05). The reliability of management plans without dermatoscopy was 0.67 and 0.70, but it did not increase significantly when dermatoscopy was added. The accuracy of the diagnoses was significantly increased by the addition of dermatoscopic images, from 85% to 94% for dermatologist A and from 88% to 95% for dermatologist B. Teledermatology is a reliable technique for the diagnosis and management of non-melanocytic skin tumours and the addition of dermatoscopic images increases the reliability and the accuracy of teledermatology.  Read More..
