Clinical Study of Porokeratosis Associated with Immunosuppressive Therapy: MATERIALS AND METHODS
We reviewed the charts of 20 patients diagnosed with PK by skin biopsy at our Department of Dermatology from January 2001 to December 2006. Of these 20 patients, 9 patients with a history of renal transplantation were included, and their clinical characteristics and skin biopsy slides were reviewed. During this period, 298 renal transplantations were conducted at our hospital.
Clinical evaluations were performed on all 9 patients with respect to age, gender, medical and family history of PK and associated diseases. In addition, we examined the clinical features of the lesions, PK onsets after renal transplantation, regimen types, and durations of immunosuppressive therapy, and assessed therapeutic responses.
