    ABSTRACT: Bromhidrosis is a common problem with a severe negative impact on the patient's social and emotional life. The objective of this open-label study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a local product with the main active ingredient of glycine-soja sterocomplex in the treatment of local bromhidrosis. Eighteen patients with axillary bromhidrosis and eight patients with bromhidrosis of the genital area were included. Bromhidrosis was evaluated through a sniff test of a worn garment on a four-point scale. Patients applied a glycine-soja sterocomplex topical agent twice daily on the affected areas for 15 days and bromhidrosis was evaluated again. Subjective mean level of bromhidrosis at baseline was 3.50 ± 0.50 and after treatment 1.53 ± 0.51. Mean impact on quality of life at baseline was 3.30 ± 0.48 and after treatment 1.30 ± 0.49. Investigators objective evaluation revealed an improvement in intensity of odor from 3.23 ± 0.83 to 1.53 ± 0.53 and in acceptability of odor from 3.1 ± 1.01 to 1.65 ± 0.76. Conclusions: The glycine-soja sterocomplex topical agent shows encouraging improvement on both the intensity and quality of odor in patients with bromhidrosis and has a profound improvement on the patients' quality of life without any side effects.

    ABSTRACT: Pityriasis rubra pilaris is an uncommon inflammatory and hyperproliferative dermatosis of juvenile or adult onset. The etiology of the disease is still unknown. We present the cases of two Caucasian men aged 53 and 48 who presented with pityriasis rubra pillaris type 1; both patients also exhibited an abnormal immunological profile. Pityriasis rubra pillaris is currently classified as a keratinization disorder. The abnormal immunological profile reported in our patients along with the comorbidity of pityriasis rubra pilaris with autoimmune disorders reported in the literature poses the question of a possible pathogenetic role for the immune response in this disorder.
