Idiopathic Guttate Hypomelanosis

Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis is traditionally a disease of the fairer skin. It is one of the few photoinduced hypopigmented lesions. Today I say one patient with multiple IGH. Some dermatologists use topical psoralen preparations though theoretically it can worsen IGH. The treatments of choice include topical steroids, tretinoin and sunscreens.

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
