Complete healing, without recurrence, of the cutaneous extramammary Paget disease was noted in seven patients whose disease was treated with topical imiquimod 5% cream: three patients with previously untreated extramammary Paget disease (6,13) (also current report) and four patients whose disease was recurrent following various initial treatments such as aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy, (14) electrodes-iccation and curettage, (8) surgical excision using the Mohs micrographic technique, (9-12) and wide surgical excision.
Daylight PDT with aminolevulinic acid or any photosensitizer can be damaging to the skin, and it's not something I would recommend to my patients.

259) hypothesized that associations might be modified by a common variant allele of the aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) gene, which encodes the primary carrier protein for lead in blood.
A single session of photodynamic therapy with aminolevulinic acid in combinatinon with intense pulsed light can significantly improve actinic keratoses and reverse signs of aging.
Aminolevulinic acid is applied to the lesion and then this is followed 14 to 18 hours later with exposure to a special blue light.
OBJECTIVE: The main objective is to determine the role of the aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) gene, which encodes the main carrier protein of lead in blood, in the association between lead exposure and blood pressure (BP) and hypertension in the U.
Another topical agent currently available in Europe and Australia but not yet in the United States, methyl aminolevulinic acid cream (Metvix), is applied and left on the skin for 3 hours, followed by I0 minutes of exposure to red light.
cPDT uses artificial light sources, but dPDT has been demonstrated to have at least comparable results/' The technique involves degreasing the face, gentle curettage of any thicker lesions, and application of aminolevulinic acid for 60 minutes.
