Background And Objective: Progressive ascending telangiectasia (PAT) is a distinct entity with telangiectatic superficial vessels on lower extremities as its main clinical feature. A relationship with occult infections and response to antibiotic and antifungal drugs have been described, although not all cases can be successfully managed with these therapies. Our objective was to treat a woman with PAT that had failed to respond to systemic antibiotic and antifungal drugs. Read More

Background: Although several lasers and light sources are now available for vascular lesions, treatment of leg veins has not been very satisfactory. Lengthening the pulse width should theoretically result in improved response rates.
Objective: This study compared the efficacy and safety of 595 nm pulsed lasers at 1. Read More

Background: The flashlamp-pumped pulsed dye laser (577,585 nm) with 300 to 450 microseconds pulsewidths has been demonstrated to effectively and safely treat port-wine stains, telangiectases, and superficial hemangiomas in children.
Objective: The objective of this manuscript is to review the indications of the pulsed dye laser in the treatment of vascular lesions in children.
Conclusion: Pulsed dye laser treatment of port-wine stains can remove or lighten the lesions with multiple treatment sessions. Read More
