#1
Jenna M Kim, Michael S Ehrlich
Marking of the eyelid is a crucial presurgical step in blepharoplasty. A number of markers are available for this purpose with variable ink characteristics. In this study, we measured the ink drying time and spread width of 13 markers used for preoperative marking for blepharoplasty. Based on the results, we propose markers that may be best suited for use in this procedure.

Kate E Oberlin
Propranolol as a dermatologic therapeutic tool was first described in 2008. Since then, propranolol has had a pivotal role in the dermatology arena for a myriad of cutaneous disorders. This article highlights the timeline of the incorporation of propranolol as a treatment option for a number of vascular lesions.

Fran E Cook-Bolden, Tina Lin
Onychomycosis is a common progressive fungal infection of the nail bed, matrix, or plate leading to destruction and deformity of the toenails and fingernails. The prevalence of onychomycosis is increasing in the United States, particularly in the growing population of Latino patients. In this study, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of efinaconazole solution 10% in Latino patients with onychomycosis. Once-daily application of efinaconazole solution 10% may be an effective topical option for treatment of onychomycosis in this patient population...

Sally Engelhart, Robert J Segal
Allergy as a cause of adverse outcomes in patients with implanted orthopedic hardware is controversial. Allergy to titanium-based implants has not been well researched, as titanium is traditionally thought to be inert. We highlight the case of a patient who developed systemic dermatitis and implant failure after surgical placement of a titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) plate in the left foot. The hardware was removed and the eruption cleared in the following weeks. The plate and screws were submitted for metal analysis...

Microneedling therapy is an increasingly popular treatment of several dermatologic conditions. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may serve as a valuable adjunct to improve the regenerative effects of treatment. We review the evidence comparing the results of microneedling therapy with and without PRP. Based on the current preliminary literature, PRP appears to augment the cosmetic outcomes of microneedling without increasing the risk for adverse events.

Patient satisfaction has become an important measure of quality under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In this study, we assessed and analyzed patient satisfaction, nonattendance rates, and cycle times in an outpatient dermatology clinic. This study provides a snapshot of patient satisfaction in an urban dermatology clinic. Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, providers will be challenged to increase access to care and to validate quality of care through patient satisfaction.

Eruptive melanocytic nevi (EMN) are rare multiple benign melanocytic nevi that develop within a few months. The phenomenon has been associated with a variety of dermatologic and systemic conditions, including Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, epidermolysis bullosa, Addison disease, human immunodeficiency virus infection, and internal malignancy, among others. It also is commonly attributed to medications, particularly immunosuppressive and chemotherapeutic agents. We report a case of EMN in a 50-year-old man undergoing azathioprine therapy for antisynthetase syndrome...

The use of online educational resources and professional social networking sites is increasing. The field of dermatology is currently under-utilizing online social networking as a means of professional collaboration and sharing of training materials. In this study, we sought to assess the current structure of and satisfaction with dermatology resident education and gauge interest for a professional social networking site for educational collaboration. Two surveys-one for residents and one for faculty-were electronically distributed via the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and Association of Professors of Dermatology (APD) listserves...

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...

Isabella Anderson, Ethan T Routt, Shelbi C Jim On
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...
