study alepeciaMesotherapy has become a new method for the treatment of different types of alopecia. However, there is a paucity of data in the literature about its efficacy and side effects. In this retrospective study, safety, efficacy, and feasibility of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections were assessed. Methods Between October 2009 and October 2010, 42 patients (8 women and 34 men) with hair loss or androgenic alopecia were included in this study. Before each session, the hair pull test was performed three times. A total volume of 8 - 12 cc was injected by using 32 or 30.5 G needles. The treatment was repeated five times over a period of 2 months. Outcome measures were assessed after 3 months by clinical examination, macroscopic photos, pull clinical test, and the patient’s overall satisfaction.

Results Before treatment, 90.5 % of our patients had a positive pull test with a mean number of eight hairs. After the third session, the pull test was negative in all patients with an average number of three hairs. Global pictures showed a significant improvement in hair volume and quality, which was confirmed by a high overall patient satisfaction. The results were even more obvious in patients who suffered from alopecia for less than 2 years. Poorer results were found in patients with marked alopecia type VI/VII according Norwood classification in men.

Divided naevus of the upper and lower lids is an infrequent congenital naevus of the human eyelids. It is also known as kissing naevus or split ocular naevus. The histological types of divided naevi may be melanocytic, cellular or compound. Until now about 30 such cases have been reported in the literature. In our clinic, in the last 20 years we have seen seven patients with divided naevus, four female and three male. Three patients, two children of 10 and 11 years and a 77-year-old nun, did not accept any treatment. The remaining four patients, three female and one male, accepted surgical treatment. None of them had received any treatment in the past. Three of these divided naevi were cellular and one was melanocytic. Treatment included a two stage reconstruction in three cases and a single stage procedure in one case. The lower eyelid was usually treated first, and upper eyelid full thickness grafts were mostly used. Lid shortening was common, particularly in the cellular naevi. The results were aesthetically and functionally good. No major complications were observed.

Repair of any defect in the eyelid depends on its size and position and the state of the surrounding tissues. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignant tumour of the eyelids, and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), mixed carcinomas or basosquamous cell carcinomas (BSC), and cutaneous melanomas (CM), also invade the eyelids and periocular zones. Reconstruction of the eyelids and associated orbital structures after resection requires a complete understanding of the anatomy. The adequacy of the reconstruction is judged by the quality of functional restoration and the aesthetic appearance. The purpose of this study was to document various, simple or complex reconstructive procedures that may be used after excision of malignant tumours of the eyelids and to assess the outcome of surgical treatment.
