  • treatment of Angiokeratoma of fordyce with pulsed dye laser
    Dermatologic Surgery, 2006
    Co-Authors: Moshe Lapidoth, Ron Azaria, Dean Adel, Michael David

    Abstract:

    BACKGROUND: Angiokeratomas of Fordyce are typically asymptomatic vascular lesions characterized by blue-to-red papules with a scale surface, most often located on the scrotum. Although considered benign, the lesions may bleed, either spontaneously or secondary to rupture, leading to patient anxiety and social embarrassment. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to determine the safety and effectiveness of 585-nm pulsed dye laser for the treatment of Angiokeratomas of Fordyce. METHODS: Twelve patients with Fitzpatrick skin type II to IV were treated for Angiokeratomas of Fordyce with pulsed dye laser (5.5-8.0 J/cm(2)) in two to six sessions. Lesion clearance was evaluated by two specialists on the basis of digital photographs taken before the first treatment and 2 months after the last treatment. RESULTS: Seven patients had an excellent response (clearance rating 75%-100%) and five patients had a good response (clearance rating 50%-75%). Transient purpura and pain were present in all patients. Bleeding during treatment occurred in five patients. There were no permanent side effects. CONCLUSION: Pulsed dye laser is effective and safe for the treatment of Angiokeratoma of Fordyce, with minimum side effects, providing an additional nonablative therapeutic option.
