photodynamic therapy for rhinophyma

Written by on September 9, 2005 in PDT, Rhinophyma with 0 Comments

Rosacea News was interested in a recent paper about Photodynamic Therapy and Rhinophyma. It has been mentioned online and at a glance looks very interesting. The trouble with quoting just the title is that you have no idea what the article deals with. Look closely, it is only 2 pages.

Pubmed lists this paper, but it requires a bit more digging to find any more information.

Photodynamic therapy for rhinophyma, J Dermatol. 2004 Sep;31(9):771-2.

It turns out that this paper is a Letter to the Editor, so is unlikely to be as promising as hoped. `J Dermatol’ is The Journal of Dermatology from the Japanese Dermatological Association. The journal lists

key words: topical application; Aminolevulinic Acid, ALA; edema reduction, Photosensitizing Agents, rhinophyma
