Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic inflammatory disease that presents a relapsing form of inflammation due to skin barrier interruption and allergic sensitization . Histologic findings show dilated and tortuous vessels on the dermal papilla, which aggravate the inflammation by recruiting a number of immunoreactive factors then cause a vicious itching cycle . Recently, vasoactive agents including vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which lead to vessel dilatations and proliferations, are overexpressed in the lesions of AD [2, 3]. A therapeutic target to the vessel, thus, becomes an important method for stopping the chronic inflammations in AD .
We encountered two patients who have lichenifications on the periorbital areas caused by chronic AD and treated the areas using a copper bromide laser which is a new type of vascular laser with an output of 578-nm yellow light. A 26-yr-old Korean male patient visited our clinic with a 2-yr AD history of scaly erythematous patches over his whole body. A second 23-yr-old Korean male patient presented to our clinic with chronic AD. He had previously been treated with topical corticosteroids, topical pimecrolimus, antihistamines and moisturizers for 2 yr. However, inflammations and lichenifications on the periorbital area of both patients, referred to Dennie-Morgan folds, cannot be well controlled by the regular use of topical corticosteroids or calcineurin inhibitors combined with oral antihistamines and corticosteroids .
Two sessions of treatment using a 578-nm copper bromide laser (Plus YellowTM; Norseld, Adelaide, SA, Australia) at 6-week intervals were performed for both patients. Two passes of treatment were delivered to the bilateral periorbital area, with settings of 578-nm yellow light, 25J/cm2 and rapid pulse mode using a 1-mm hand-piece. The periorbital lesions of both patients were resolved by laser treatment and remained in an improved state one month after the final treatments In conclusion, 578-nm copper bromide laser treatments using yellow light are a good alternative option for the treatment of periorbital eczema in AD. However, further studies are required to understand the precise mechanisms of vascular laser treatment on AD.
