    Context: Molluscum contagiosum is a common viral cutaneous infection. Despite multiple treatment options, there is no definitive treatment. In some cases, the lesions are severe, recurrent, and cosmetically odd. Modified autoinoculation is a novel technique that induces cell-mediated immunity resulting in clearance of local as well as distant lesions. Potassium hydroxide acts by dissolving the keratin and penetrating deeply destroys the hyperproliferative tissue. We would here...

    Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery 2022 15(1):33-39
    Background: Surgical treatment of vitiligo is reserved for stable recalcitrant vitiligo patches. Split-thickness skin grafting is an important established modality for the surgical treatment of vitiligo, whereas autologous, non-cultured, non-trypsinized epidermal cell transplant, also known as Jodhpur technique , is an unconventional innovative surgical modality for the treatment of stable vitiligo. Aims: To compare the two techniques, JT and STSG...

    Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery 2022 15(1):17-23
    Background: Chronic non-healing ulcers are often associated with some underlying pathology which prevents timely healing thus increasing the patients morbidity and healthcare expenses. Autologous non-cultured non-trypsinized keratinocyte and melanocyte grafting also known as Jodhpur technique , an epidermal graft and autologous platelet-rich fibrin matrix are newer modalities with promising results. Aims: To compare the efficacy and safety of JT and autologous PRFM in the treatment of...
