Public interest in dermatologic symptoms, conditions, treatments, and procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic: Insights from Google Trends.

Dermatol Ther 2021 Mar 25;34(2):e14895. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Dermatology, Marmara University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic had substantial effect both on daily life and medical practice. Internet data have been used to analyze the trends in public interest in various medical conditions and treatments. The aim of this study is to analyze the public interest in dermatologic symptoms, conditions, treatments, and procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic. Google Trends was queried for a total of 120 dermatological search queries. Three periods of 2020 ([March 15-May 9], [May 10-July 4], and [July 5-October 31]) were compared with the previous 4 years (2016-2019). A significantly decreased interest in skin cancers and certain dermatologic conditions (eg, pityriasis rosea and scabies) was observed throughout the study period. Whereas a significant increase of interest in dry skin, hair shedding, oily hair, atopic dermatitis, and hand eczema was detected during the study. An initial decrease in interest was followed by a significant increase for acne, comedones, melasma, rosacea, botox, dermaroller, and peeling. The study demonstrated a significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the public interest in dermatology. The present results would help to create healthcare policies and information sources, which can meet the public demand. The reasons for the observed trends and their effect on patient outcomes might be of interest for future studies.

The efficacy and safety of targeted narrowband UVB therapy: a retrospective cohort study

Turk J Med Sci 2019 Apr 18;49(2):595-603. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Background/aim: Phototherapy is a safe and effective treatment modality for numerous dermatological conditions. Recently, targeted phototherapy modalities have gained importance due to their advantages over conventional phototherapy.This retrospective study aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of targeted narrowband UVB phototherapy in patients with dermatological disorders

Materials And Methods: This single-center study included 173 patients who were treated with targeted narrowband UVB phototherapy. Demographic features, phototherapy parameters, and adverse effects were evaluated in all patients, and the treatment response was assessed in patients who attended at least one follow-up visit.

Results: A total of 173 patients (102 females; 71 males) with vitiligo, alopecia areata, lichen simplex chronicus, palmoplantar psoriasis, and psoriasis vulgaris were included in the study. Among 73 patients, with whom the treatment was finalized by physician, an excellent response was obtained in 10%, 52.9%, 53.8%, 28.6%, and 40% of patients with vitiligo, alopecia areata, lichen simplex chronicus, palmoplantar psoriasis, and psoriasis, respectively. The treatment was generally well tolerated and was discontinued in only two patients due to adverse effects.

Conclusion: This study demonstrates that targeted narrowband UVB therapy is a safe and effective treatment alternative, particularly for alopecia areata, lichen simplex chronicus, and palmoplantar and plaque-type psoriasis.

Frequency, severity and related factors of androgenetic alopecia in dermatology outpatient clinic: hospital-based cross-sectional study in Turkey.

An Bras Dermatol 2017 Jan-Feb;92(1):35-40

Department of Dermatology - Sisli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital - Istanbul, Turkey.

Background:: Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is a patterned hair loss occurring due to systemic androgen and genetic factors. It is the most common cause of hair loss in both genders. In recent years, many studies investigating the relation between systemic diseases and androgenetic alopecia presented controversial results.

Objectives:: In this study we aimed to investigate the frequency of androgenetic alopecia, the presence of accompanying systemic diseases, the relation between body mass index and androgenetic alopecia severity and the association of hyperandrogenemia signs with androgenetic alopecia in patients who referred to our outpatient clinic.

Methods:: Patients who referred to our clinic between October 2013 and May 2014 were included in the study. Diagnosis of androgenetic alopecia was made upon clinical findings. Presence of seborrhea and acne in both genders, and hirsutism in women, were examined. Age, gender, smoking habit and alcohol consumption, age of onset of androgenetic alopecia, family history, accompanying systemic diseases and abnormalities of menstrual cycle were recorded.

Results:: 954 patients (535 women, 419 men) were included in the study. Androgenetic alopecia prevalence found was 67.1% in men and 23.9% in women. Androgenetic alopecia prevalence and severity were correlated with age in both genders (p=0,0001). Frequency of accompanying systemic diseases were not significantly different between patients with and without androgenetic alopecia (p=0,087), except for hypertension, which was significantly more frequent in men with androgenetic alopecia aged between 50 and 59 years. Study limitations: Despite the exclusion of other causes of alopecia, differentiation of Ludwig grade 1 AGA from telogen effluvium based on clinical features alone is difficult.

Conclusions:: In our study the rate of androgenetic alopecia was found to be higher than the other studies made in Asian and Caucasian populations.
