Dermoscopy is used as an adjunct to clinical examination in the diagnosis of skin lesions, including melanoma. Videodermoscopy, which allows for the concurrent examination of dermoscopic features at high magnification by instructors and trainees, may serve as a useful educational tool during bedside instruction. This article presents images of common cutaneous lesions taken with a standard optical dermatoscope and a videodermatoscope to highlight the potential educational advantages conferred by videodermoscopy...

Travis J Morrell, William S Mortensen, Shawna Langley
Amyopathic dermatomyositis (ADM) represents a substantial subset of dermatomyositis (DM). Patients with this symptom of the disorder may present initially to a dermatologist. Amyopathic dermatomyositis shares cutaneous findings with DM and both overlap and differ with respect to other key disease characteristics, including autoantibody profile, associated lung disease, and malignancy risk. Plantar keratoderma is a rare skin finding in DM. We report a case of ADM uniquely marked by the finding of plantar keratoderma, which resolved with oral methotrexate therapy...

Atypical vascular lesions (AVLs) of the breast are rare cutaneous vascular proliferations that appear as flesh-colored or erythematous papules or macules in women who have undergone radiation treatment for breast carcinoma. These lesions can develop in the irradiated area up to 20 years after the radiation treatment but most commonly occur within 3 to 6 years. The general consensus agrees on the benign nature of AVLs; however, their identity as benign lesions has been a source of controversy over the years, with some investigators proposing that AVLs may be a precursor lesion to postirradiation angiosarcomas...

Traumatic ulcerative granuloma with stromal eosinophilia (TUGSE) is an underreported diagnosis in dermatologic literature. Rapid expansion with an ulcerative clinical appearance often provokes fear of malignancy despite its benign nature. Traumatic ulcerative granuloma with stromal eosinophilia is thought to be a reactive tissue response to trauma, but CD30(+) mononuclear cells within a TUGSE lesion suggests the possibility of an underlying lymphoproliferative disorder. This case highlights the clinical and histological features of TUGSE and provides a brief review of the literature addressing this debate...

Flaura K Winston, Albert C Yan
The popularity of mobile wearable health devices has skyrocketed. Some of these devices are worn on the wrist and have been associated with the development of allergic contact dermatitis. Although nickel has been the suspected culprit in cases reported by the media for consumers, we present a rare report of a patient who developed a localized contact dermatitis that was linked to acrylate allergy on epicutaneous patch testing. We surmise that the source of this acrylate might derive from leaching of this compound from the rechargeable battery housing given its correspondence to where the rash arose...

Steven D Daveluy
Patients with delusional infestation frequently bring specimens and examining these specimens is important in establishing a therapeutic relationship. The minute brown scavenger beetle is a member of the family Latridiidae. It is found in moist environments and feeds on mold. It poses no threat to humans, but it is important that dermatologists recognize it because it may be contained in specimens brought by patients.

Confocal microscopy is an imaging tool that uses a laser system to image the skin noninvasively with cellular resolution. With both in vivo and ex vivo systems, tissue can be imaged rapidly without damaging the sample. Herein, we discuss the capabilities of the ex vivo confocal microscope and its implementation for treatment and management of cutaneous malignancies.

In this study, we investigated the role of successive potassium hydroxide (KOH) tests for the diagnosis of tinea pedis with different clinical presentations. The study included 135 patients with 200 lesions that were clinically suspicious for tinea pedis. Three samples of skin scrapings were taken from each lesion in the same session and were examined using a KOH test. This study offers an inexpensive, rapid, and useful technique for the daily practice of clinicians and mycologists managing patients with clinically suspected tinea pedis...

Kate Ross, Jessika Contreras, David Aung-Din, Mary Lien
Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa (CPAN) is a rare cutaneous small- to medium-vessel vasculitis of unknown etiology. Clinically it ranges in manifestation from livedo reticularis to large cutaneous ulcers and necrosis. Prognosis is favorable and progression to systemic polyarteritis nodosa is rare. There are multiple treatment options, none of which have proven to be definitively effective. Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa has been associated with abnormal antibody testing with elevations of antiphospholipid cofactor antibody, lupus anticoagulant, anticardiolipin antibody, and anti-β2-glycoprotein I-dependent cardiolipin antibodies, as well as elevated anti-phosphatidylserine-prothrombin complex antibody...

The loss of the 3-dimensional contour of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) following surgical breast reconstruction is a technical challenge for the physician and a psychological burden for many breast cancer patients. The use of injectable dermal fillers to enhance nipple projection is a simple noninvasive procedure with immediate and adjustable volume results that positively impact patient satisfaction. The utility and safety of injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) gel make it an ideal filler for restoring the natural feel and contour to the delicate structure of the NAC and in some cases may represent a simple solution following breast reconstruction...
