#1
Yi C Lai, Yik W Yew
Lichen planus (LP) and lichenoid drug eruptions (LDEs) uncommonly occur after vaccination, especially for hepatitis B and influenza. The key initiating event that leads to the development of postimmunization LP or LDE is not well understood. There have been prior reports of an association between several vaccines and LP. In this study, we aim to characterize and review cases of LP and LDE after vaccination from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) national database in the United States. Information on vaccine-associated LP and LDE was retrieved from the database (July 1990 to November 2014) to examine the frequency of LP or LDE after vaccination...

This article exhibits the most common differential diagnoses for pediatric leg ulcers and contrasts the etiologies with the adult population. The diagnoses are further categorized into hematologic, infectious, genodermatoses, and autoimmune etiologies to help the dermatologist deduce the accurate diagnosis in this unique patient population.

Acne fulminans is an uncommon and debilitating disease that presents as an acute eruption of nodular and ulcerative acne lesions in association with systemic symptoms. It occurs commonly during treatment of severe acne (eg, acne conglobata) with isotretinoin in young adolescent male patients. Isotretinoin and doxycycline also can potentially induce development of neutrophilic dermatoses in patients with severe acne lesions, which are characterized by the acute appearance of painful ulcerative papulonodules accompanied by systemic symptoms including fever and leukocytosis...

Nicholas A Horan, Dominick J DiMaio
Pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma (PMHE) is a rare vascular tumor that was added to the World Health Organization classification of soft tissue tumors. These tumors have a unique clinical presentation and microscopic appearance as compared to other vascular tumors in the differential diagnosis. Unlike its microscopic mimicker epithelioid sarcoma, PMHE rarely metastasizes and long-term survival in affected patients is excellent. In this report, we present a patient with PMHE and review the current literature on clinical presentation and histologic differentiation of this unique tumor, comparing findings to its mimickers...

Alicia T Dagrosa, Dirk M Elston
The head louse (Pediculus humanus capitis) is a blood-sucking arthropod of the suborder Anoplura. Infestation continues in epidemic proportions in children of all socioeconomic groups. Although not implicated as a disease vector, infestation can lead to considerable distress, missed days of school, and secondary infections. Pyrethroids are recommended for treatment, but resistance is common. Newer agents, including benzyl alcohol and spinosad, have been developed to address this gap in care.

Roselyn Kellen, Nanette B Silverberg
Periorificial dermatitis (POD) has been documented in the pediatric population in patients as young as 3 months, with a slight predominance in girls compared to boys. Many patients have a personal or family history of atopic disorders. Periorificial dermatitis typically presents with erythematous to flesh-colored papules and rarely pustules near the eyes, nose, and mouth. Although the etiology is unknown, many patients have had recent exposure to a topical or less commonly an inhaled or systemic corticosteroid...

Shital Poojary, Mrunal Shah
Sjögren-Larsson syndrome (SLS) is a rare autosomal-recessive neurocutaneous disorder comprising a triad of ichthyosis, mental retardation, and spastic diplegia or quadriplegia. It has rarely been reported in Asian and Indian populations. We report the case of an Indian patient with SLS who presented with the classical clinical triad and demonstrated characteristic findings on magnetic resonance spectroscopy. In resource-restricted settings where enzymatic and genetic analyses are not available, magnetic resonance spectroscopy serves as a useful adjunct in confirming the diagnosis of SLS...

The case of a 58-year-old man with a pruritic rash involving the pubic area that had been undiagnosed for 30 years is presented. At least 15 different primary care physicians and dermatologists evaluated the patient during this time period. Multiple treatments were unsuccessful and a definitive diagnosis was not rendered. Wood lamp evaluation of the pubic area revealed hair shaft concretions that were confirmed on histologic evaluation to be white piedra (WP). The patient was successfully treated with topical ketoconazole and the eruption completely resolved...

Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is a rare, autosomal-dominant, cancer-predisposing, multisystem disorder. The clinical manifestations of NBCCS include multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), odontogenic keratocysts, palmar or plantar pits, and calcification of the falx cerebri. We present a case of an 11-year-old boy with Fitzpatrick skin type V who presented with multiple facial lesions and a history of maxillary keratocysts. Skin biopsy was consistent with pigmented BCC of the right nasolabial fold...

A 71-year-old woman presented with pink to violaceous, flat-topped, polygonal papules on the volar wrists, extensor elbows, and bilateral lower legs of 3 years' duration. She also had erythematous, violaceous, infiltrated plaques with microvesiculation on the bilateral thighs of several months' duration. She reported pruritus, burning, and discomfort. Her medical history included type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and asthma with no history of skin rashes. Workup revealed lichen planus pemphigoides (LPP), a rare papulosquamous and vesiculobullous dermatosis that shares features of both lichen planus (LP) and bullous pemphigoid (BP)...

Dermatology departments in the United States face difficulties in recruiting dermatologists to academic positions, raising concerns for the future of dermatology education and research. This preliminary study aimed to explore the impact of student loan burden on career plans in dermatology and to determine if the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program can be used as a recruitment tool for academic positions in dermatology. Results from this electronic survey, which was distributed to dermatology residents and attending physicians, revealed that debt burden may influence career decisions in dermatology...

The direct and indirect costs of dermatology clinic visits are infrequently quantified. Indirect costs, such as the time spent traveling to and from appointments and the value of lost earnings from time away from work, are substantial costs that often are not included in economic analyses but may pose barriers to receiving care. Due to the national shortage of dermatologists, patients may have to wait longer for appointments or travel further to see dermatologists outside of their local community, resulting in high time and travel costs for patients...
