Leyre Falto-Aizpurua, Sarah Seyfer, Bhuvaneswari Krishnan, Ida Orengo
Carcinoid tumors are uncommon neoplasms of neuroendocrine origin that generally arise in the gastrointestinal or bronchopulmonary tracts and typically are characterized by an indolent clinical course. Metastases from these primary neoplasms more commonly affect the viscera, with rare reports of cutaneous metastases to the skin. We report the case of a patient with a cutaneous carcinoid metastasis that was incidentally brought to our attention because of the exquisite tenderness of the lesion. A brief review of the literature also is provided...

Orf is a zoonotic infection caused by a parapoxvirus and is endemic in sheep and goats. It may be transmitted to humans by direct contact with infected animals. We report a case of a giant orf in a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), which proliferated dramatically after surgical excision and resolved after systemic interferon alfa-2a injections.

The mastocytoses comprise a group of proliferative stem cell disorders defined by the abnormal accumulation of mast cells (MCs) in the skin or other body tissues including the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, and liver. Systemic mastocytosis is defined by the presence of one major and one minor criterion or 3 minor criteria delineated by the World Health Organization (WHO). We present the case of a 57-year-old woman with a 10-year history of red-brown pruritic maculopapular lesions on the upper and lower extremities and trunk who was originally diagnosed with cutaneous mastocytosis...

Laura E Levin, Cynthia Magro, James Horowitz, Joanna Harp
Hydralazine-induced small vessel vasculitis is a rare entity with a limited number of cases reported in the dermatologic literature. A characteristic pattern of acral pseudoembolic vesiculopustules with necrosis and ulceration has been suggested along with involvement of the aerodigestive tract, indicating mucosal involvement is an important feature of this disease. We report the case of a patient with hydralazine-induced vasculitis who exemplified this characteristic presentation associated with severe involvement of the aerodigestive tract and gastrointestinal tract bleeding...

Jill K Henley, Eric W Hossler
Acquired epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EDV) is a rare condition occurring in patients with depressed cellular immunity, particularly individuals with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Acquired EDV is less commonly reported in recipients of stem cell or solid organ transplantation. This condition typically manifests within 5 years of initial immunosuppression and can present as multiple hypopigmented to red, tinea versicolor-like macules or as multiple verrucous, flat-topped papules distributed over the trunk, arms, and legs...

H Harris Reynolds, Dirk M Elston
Cheyletiella are nonburrowing mites commonly found on rabbits, dogs, and cats. The mites have been known to cause disease in humans, ranging from mild dermatitis to more severe illness with systemic symptoms. Because these mites do not complete any part of their life cycle in humans, diagnosis can be challenging. Herein, we review various clinical presentations associated with Cheyletiella mites as well as diagnostic techniques and treatment options for both humans and animals.

The US Census Bureau predicts that more than half of the country's population will identify as a race other than non-Hispanic white by the year 2044. Racial disparities also exist in the physician population where black individuals and Latinos are underrepresented. The Skin of Color Society (SOCS) was established to address the need for parity among dermatology patients with skin of color. The society provides educational support on dermatologic health related to skin of color and functions through committees that represent the multifaceted aspects of the organization...

Alexandra Rosenberg, Jon H Meyerle
Early detection of skin cancer is essential to reducing morbidity and mortality from both melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers. Total-body skin examinations (TBSEs) may improve early detection of malignant melanomas (MMs) but are controversial due to the poor quality of data available to establish a mortality benefit from skin cancer screening. Total-body photography (TBP) promises to provide a way forward by lowering the costs of dermatologic screening while simultaneously leveraging technology to increase patient access to dermatologic care...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a common nonmelanoma skin cancer with increasing incidence in the United States and worldwide. It is strongly linked to UV radiation exposure and typically is slow growing. Malignancy in BCCs is due to local growth and invasion rather than metastasis, and the prognosis is generally favorable. We report the case of a 60-year-old man with a large, locally destructive giant BCC on the right side of the upper back that was successfully treated via complete surgical excision (SE) and did not recur in the subsequent 36 months...

Diagnosis and management of lentigo maligna (LM) and LM melanoma (LMM) is challenging. Novel noninvasive imaging technologies such as reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) have advanced the ability to better diagnose and monitor challenging lesions. In addition, the new handheld RCM (HRCM) together with the use of videomosaics has allowed an accurate evaluation of large lesions in concave/convex areas of the body (eg, the face). Herein, we review the impact of HRCM in the detection, treatment decision-making, and monitoring of 5 cases of complex facial LM/LMM...

Children who are not adequately protected from the sun have an increased risk for developing skin cancers later in life. The primary objective of this study was to determine the sun protection behaviors that black and Hispanic parents in Miami, Florida, employ in infants younger than 6 months. Secondary objectives included determining if this patient population is at risk for infant sunburns and tanning, beliefs among parents regarding sunscreen's efficacy in the prevention of skin cancers, and limitations of sunscreen use...

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.
