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...

Shuai Xu, Zaza Atanelov, Ashish C Bhatia
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...

Kara Hoverson, Abel D Jarell, Wendi E Wohltmann
Lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) is a unique subset of chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CCLE) that generally presents as urticarialike papules and plaques with induration and erythema on the face, trunk, and upper extremities. Lesions rarely present on the scalp or below the waist. We report a unique case of LET on the scalp of a woman that presented clinically as alopecia areata. Resistance to the standard treatment for alopecia areata prompted a biopsy that proved the diagnosis.

Various infections, autoimmune diseases, medications, and total-body irradiation are known factors associated with CD4 lymphopenia, defined as a CD4 T-cell count below 300 cells/mL or less than 20% of total lymphocytes. We report a rare case of a patient with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) who developed profound CD4 lymphopenia in the setting of long-term bexarotene therapy. Bexarotene is a third-generation retinoid that inhibits epithelial cell proliferation and is approved for treatment of advanced CTCL (stages IIB-IVB) in adult patients who have failed at least 1 prior systemic therapy...

H Harris Reynolds, Dirk M Elston
Amblyomma americanum, also known as the lone star tick, is found in much of the eastern United States. Since the mid-20th century, the lone star tick has been implicated in human disease. Today, A americanum remains an important vector for tick-borne illness. In addition to others, species of Rickettsia, Ehrlichia, and Borrelia are all transmitted by the lone star tick. Recently described conditions such as Southern tick-associated rash illness and anaphylaxis to red meat following tick bites have been attributed to the lone star tick...

Jeffrey M Milch, Nicholas F Logemann
Protection from UV radiation (UVR) is of paramount importance in preventing skin cancers, the majority of which occur on sun-exposed areas of the face, ears, and neck. A reusable, inexpensive, and truly simple measure of personal protection that greatly reduces exposure to UVR, thereby reducing the risk for developing skin cancers, can be achieved simply by regularly wearing a wide-brimmed hat. In some areas of the world where sunny climates are pervasive and exposure to UVR is part of everyday life, fashion trends, policy, and public health initiatives are in sync, and photoprotection with wide-brimmed hats is embraced as a common and fashionable practice...

We report the case of a 51-year-old man who presented with an atypical inflammatory response of the gingiva and hard palate that was concomitant with widespread cutaneous psoriasis. The patient had discontinued taking adalimumab 6 months prior to presentation, having achieved satisfactory management of his cutaneous lesions; however, he resumed 2 days prior to presentation due to recurrent disease. A gingival biopsy was consistent with oral psoriasis. At a 2-month follow-up, dramatic resolution of oral involvement was evident and the cutaneous psoriatic plaques were greatly reduced in size...

#20
Dane Hill, Steven R Feldman
Growing incentives to control health care costs may cause accountable care organizations (ACOs) to reconsider how skin disease is best managed. Limited data have suggested that disease management by a primary care physician (PCP) may be less costly than seeing a specialist, though it is not clear if the same is true for the management of skin disease. This study assessed the cost of seeing a dermatologist versus a PCP for diagnosis of psoriasis and rosacea.
