Laser treatment of Ota nevi can be complicated, particularly in darker skin types, as there is a higher risk for adverse effects if the laser is not carefully employed. We report a case of successful treatment of an Ota nevus in a patient with Fitzpatrick skin type IV with the novel 532-nm solid-state picosecond laser after 2 treatments.

Ryan E O'Leary, Jennifer L Hsiao, Scott D Worswick
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune condition characterized by a thrombotic event and/or pregnancy morbidity in the presence of persistently elevated antiphospholipid (aPL) antibody titers, which are most prevalent in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus but also have been associated with other autoimmune, malignant, and infectious diseases. In contrast to the clear correlation between high aPL antibody titers and thrombotic events in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, the pathogenic role of these autoantibodies in association with other diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), is not as well defined...

Palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) is a dermatosis that presents as hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles. It may be acquired or heritable. Acquired PPK often occurs as a paraneoplastic response as well as a stigma of other dermatoses. We report a rare case of a 72-year-old woman with acquired PPK secondary to metastatic uterine adenocarcinoma. We also review other rare cases of cutaneous paraneoplasia secondary to uterine cancer and describe the salient features of acquired PPK. Acquired PPK most commonly presents as a paraneoplastic response to visceral malignancies that include localized esophageal, pulmonary, urinary/bladder, and gastric carcinomas, as well as myeloma...

Disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP) is a chronic condition characterized by numerous atrophic papules and patches with a distinctive peripheral keratotic ridge, typically found on sun-exposed areas. Treatment of DSAP is warranted not only for cosmetic and symptomatic benefits but also to prevent malignant transformation. Successful treatment of DSAP often is difficult and frequently requires the use of multiple modalities. Ingenol mebutate gel 0.05% is a topical medication primarily used for the treatment of actinic keratosis (AK) by inducing cell death...

Herpes zoster (HZ), or shingles, is commonly seen in older adults but does occur in children. Routine administration of the varicella vaccine started in 1995 in the United States; since then, the incidence of varicella and HZ has declined. We report a case of HZ in an otherwise healthy 19-month-old boy who had been vaccinated at 13 months of age and recovered fully after acyclovir treatment. We review previously reported cases of HZ in healthy vaccinated children.

Topical agents, including retinoids and antibiotics, are commonly used to treat acne vulgaris (AV) and remain as components of acne treatment guidelines. Approved topical combination formulations offer the advantages of established efficacy, decreased frequency of application, and improved convenience for patients. This article discusses both clindamycin phosphate (CP) and tretinoin (Tret) as components of a topical aqueous-based combination gel that has been shown to be effective, safe, and well tolerated for treatment of facial AV...

Niloofar Yari, C Helen Malone, Antonio Rivas
Crusted scabies is a severe, highly contagious form of classic scabies caused by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei var hominis. Crusted scabies is more common in immunosuppressed populations and overcrowded environments. In this condition, the host's immune system is overwhelmed and unable to defend against the mites on the skin, resulting in hyperinfestation of the host. Diagnosis can be challenging because the condition resembles other common skin conditions, such as plaque psoriasis. Furthermore, delayed diagnosis and inappropriate treatment can lead to worsening of the condition...

The use of oral contraceptive pills (OCPs), which can be an effective treatment of acne in women, is poorly understood among many dermatologists. In this study, we surveyed 116 US dermatologists about their knowledge, comfort, and prescribing practices pertaining to the use of OCPs. The majority of respondents had previously prescribed OCPs and believed they were an effective treatment of acne in women. Despite adverse effects such as increased risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) associated with OCPs, especially those containing drospirenone, our study indicated that many dermatologists believe the benefits of increased treatment efficacy may outweigh the risks...

Imatinib mesylate (imatinib) is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor initially approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2001 for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Since then, the number of indicated uses for imatinib has substantially increased. It is increasingly important that dermatologists recognize adverse cutaneous manifestations of imatinib and are aware of their management and outcomes to avoid unnecessarily discontinuing a potentially lifesaving medication. Adverse cutaneous manifestations in response to imat-inib are not infrequent and can include dry skin, alopecia, facial edema, and photosensitivity rash...

Roberto Arenas, Ramón F Fernandez Martinez, Edoardo Torres-Guerrero, Carlos Garcia
Mycetoma is a chronic infection that develops after traumatic inoculation of the skin with either true fungi or aerobic actinomycetes. The resultant infections are known as eumycetoma or actinomycetoma, respectively. Although actinomycetoma is rare in developed countries, migration of patients from endemic areas makes knowledge of this condition crucial for dermatologists worldwide. We present a review of the current concepts in the epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of actinomycetoma...

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is the gold standard for treating high-risk skin cancers and skin cancers in areas where skin sparing is essential. However, relatively little is known about patient-reported satisfaction with this procedure. In this study, we used qualitative research methods to determine themes of patient-reported satisfaction and dissatisfaction with MMS on one popular online resource (RealSelf). Real-world patient feedback provides an opportunity for physicians to explore the patient mind-set and to target areas of potential improvement in MMS patient satisfaction...
