Kate E Oberlin
This article exhibits the most common presentations of vesiculobullous diseases in newborns and reviews the clinical characteristics unique to each diagnosis. Furthermore, a schematic for the workup of neonatal vesicular disorders is presented to empower dermatology residents to execute accurate diagnoses and maximize patient care.

Clinical diagnosis of lymphomatoid granulomatosis (LYG) often is difficult, especially in patients with multiple comorbidities. We present a 60-year-old woman with worsening fatigue, night sweats, unintentional weight loss, and dyspnea of 2 weeks' duration. Her medical history was remarkable for recent radiation therapy for recurrent breast cancer and antisynthetase syndrome complicated by interstitial lung disease and controlled with azathioprine. Computed tomography showed ground-glass opacities and nodular infiltrates in all lung lobes, raising concern for radiation pneumonitis and drug toxicity...

There currently are 3 topical agents approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat onychomycosis: tavaborole, efinaconazole, and ciclopirox. The phase 3 clinical trial designs for these treatments and their notable differences make it difficult for clinicians to interpret the data into clinical practice. For example, the primary end point predominantly used to assess efficacy in all the trials is complete cure, defined as no involvement of the nail plus mycologic cure; also, a notable number of patients fail to achieve a complete cure despite clear improvement in the nail...

We present a unique case of 3 vascular malformations-Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS), facial infantile hemangioma (IH), and cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita (CMTC)-with dermatologic manifestations presenting in the same patient. This case highlights the possibility of occurrence of multiple vascular malformations in the same patient; the potential role of epigenetic factors; and the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to diagnose, treat, and manage this complicated interplay of vascular abnormalities to achieve the best outcome...

Skin of color (SOC) populations (ie, blacks, Hispanics, Asians) are at a notably higher risk for mortality from skin cancers such as melanoma than white individuals. In this article, we seek to answer the following question: Do knowledge-based interventions increase skin cancer awareness among SOC patients? Following an extensive literature search, a total of 4 articles were analyzed and discussed in this review.

Facial aesthetic procedures are central to cosmetic dermatology. Success depends not only on improving individual structures but also on establishing facial harmony. Several canons of aesthetic dimensions have been described, and these concepts can provide a useful basis for procedural planning. Here, we review aesthetic facial measurements and proportions as well as the variations that may occur in different ethnic groups and the changes that develop with age.

Military pilots may be at greater risk for skin cancer, particularly melanoma. Military-specific studies are limited, but skin cancer rates in civilian pilots and aircrews have previously been examined. Risk factors for all pilots may include exposure to UV radiation (UVR) at higher altitudes, cosmic radiation, and electromagnetic energy from cockpit instruments, as well as altered sleep-wake cycles. The study of aviation-specific risk factors for skin cancer is relevant to all pilots and dermatologists who care for them...

#17
Erin E Quist, Dominick J DiMaio
Trichoblastomas are rare cutaneous tumors arising from the hair bulb and mesenchyme. Although they are benign, they can pose a diagnostic dilemma for the clinician and pathologist because they clinically and histologically mimic more common lesions such as basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and trichoepitheliomas. It is important for the clinician and pathologist to be aware of such tumors and their variants. We present a case of a melanotrichoblastoma, an exceedingly rare variant of trichoblastoma, as well as review the current literature on the clinical presentation and histologic differentiation of these unique tumors with their more commonly seen mimics...

Granulomatous pigmented purpuric dermatosis (GPPD) is a rare histologic variant of pigmented purpuric dermatosis (PPD). It includes classic histology changes of PPD with superimposed granulomas. This variant is thought to be associated with hyperlipidemia and is found predominantly in individuals in the Far East; however, a review of the literature that included 26 documented cases of GPPD revealed these associations might be becoming less clear. We report a case of GPPD in an elderly white man who had an eruption involving the majority of the lower legs...

Introduced in 2008 and subsequently popularized in South Korea, cosmetic eye whitening has been offered as a treatment of chronic conjunctival hyperemia. Patients undergo conjunctivectomy with topical mitomycin C (MMC) 0.02% application to achieve a whitened appearance from bleaching of avascular sclera. Much speculation has arisen from this procedure given the limited available evidence on its efficacy and safety. A literature search was performed to review common complications of cosmetic eye whitening, including chronic conjunctival epithelial defects, scleral thinning, avascular zones in the sclera, dry eye syndrome, and diplopia requiring strabismus surgery...

We describe a painful atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) arising in a setting of erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp. Complete excision was curative and also was associated with resolution of pain and clearance of the erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp. We review the diagnosis and management of AFX and discuss the role of actinic damage in this process.
