Efficacy and Safety of Pimecrolimus Cream (1%) in the Treatment of Discoid Lupus Erythematosus

Abstract
Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) is commonly treated with topical agents, the most important of which are glucocorticosteroids. However, prolonged use of these agents, especially on sensitive areas such as the face, may result in side effects (e.g. atrophy and telangiectases) by altering collagen synthesis. This was a randomized double-blind pilot study, performed in the Department of Dermatology & VD, Ibn-Sina Sina Medical College, Dhaka. Seventy four patients aged 20-53 years with moderate to severe DLE of the face were randomized 8 weeks of treatment and 8 weeks of follow-up after treatment. Read Full Article.
