Abstract :

Laser treatment of onychomycosisis a quick and easy method without complicationes. Two hundred patients with a KOH(+), onychoscopy(+), confirmed clinical diagnosis of onycho micosis were included in the present study. All of the patients were treated in a single sesiĆ³n with a 1064-nm neodymium-dopedyttrium-aluminumgarnet (Nd:YAG)q-switch laser. There was a 100% clinical response rate within the 18-month follow-up period with no side effects. This method is proposed as a novel and safe method for the treatment of ungual pathology.
