It is estimated that almost half of patients affected with Crohn disease (CD) experience a dermatologic manifestation of the condition. Metastatic CD (MCD) is a rare dermatologic entity, with as few as 100 cases reported in the literature. As such, MCD presents a clinical dilemma in diagnosis and management. The etiology of MCD is not well defined; however, prevailing theories agree that the underlying mechanism is an immunologic response to gut antigens. Diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion and usually is made by exclusion of other processes...

Previous studies have demonstrated incomplete sunscreen self-application to various facial regions in cosmetic surgery patients, but there is no scientific research on the completeness of facial and periocular sunscreen self-application using ultraviolet (UV) photography for assessment. This prospective, cross-sectional, qualitative study aimed to assess completeness of facial application of sunscreen in oculofacial surgery patients at the Duke Eye Center (Durham, North Carolina). Forty-four participants were enrolled, and completeness of facial sunscreen self-application was assessed using UV photography...

Chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) is one of the mysteries of dermatology. An association between spontaneous CIU and contact allergy sensitization is possible. In this study, we aimed to test the hypothesis that contact allergy might play a role in disease in CIU patients. Furthermore, we examined if patch testing should be routinely performed in patients with chronic urticaria (CU). Ultimately, we concluded that patch testing should be included among the diagnostic procedures for CU.

Primary cutaneous neoplasms of myoepithelial differentiation are uncommon. Cutaneous myoepithelial carcinomas are rare. We report a case of cutaneous myoepithelial carcinoma in a 47-year-old man with a history of end-stage renal disease and renal transplant 19 years prior who presented to the hospital with a 3-month history of diffuse bone pain and an ulcerated scalp mass with multiple satellite lesions. This case illustrates a rare instance of metastatic disease from primary cutaneous myoepithelial carcinoma...

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) has recently received Category I Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for reimbursement comparable to a skin biopsy. In this article, we present a review of RCM imaging and its benefits and limitations in diagnosis and treatment planning. We also comment on guidelines for receiving reimbursement for acquiring, reading, and interpreting RCM images.

#15
Megan E Hohenberger, Dirk M Elston
Belonging to the Trombiculidae family of mites, chigger specifically refers to the larval stage of the mite's life cycle when it is able to bite its host. Although humans act as an accidental host, chiggers will latch on to the skin and their feeding process leads to localized inflammation and irritation. In most cases, these pruritic erythematous papules and papulovesicles are self-healing within a couple weeks, so only symptomatic relief is required as necessary by means of topical antipruritics, oral antihistamines, topical corticosteroids, or an intralesional triamcinolone acetonide injection in severe instances...

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of narrowband UVB (NB-UVB) phototherapy on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) levels and related parameters in patients with psoriasis. Forty-nine participants with moderate to severe plaque-type psoriasis were included in this study and were treated with NB-UVB therapy 3 times weekly for 6 months or until psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) 75 was achieved. Participants' serum 25(OH)D, calcium, phosphorus, parathyroid hormone (PTH), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) levels were measured at baseline and completion of treatment, along with PASI scores...

David A Pate, Luke S Johnson, Michelle B Tarbox
Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is a disease characterized by inflammation of small vessels presenting with petechiae and palpable purpura. Leukocytoclastic vasculitis often spontaneously resolves within weeks and requires only symptomatic treatment. Chronic or severe disease can require systemic treatment with agents such as colchicine, dapsone, or corticosteroids, which are effective but carry a risk for serious adverse events. These side effects and/or medical contraindications preclude some patients from taking systemic medications for LCV...

Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS) is a rare disorder inherited in an autosomal-dominant fashion that belongs to a group of hereditary periodic fever syndromes. It specifically belongs to the cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPSs) in which there is a mutation in the NLRP3 (NLR family pyrin domain containing 3) gene that leads to overproduction of IL-1β, the source of the multisystem inflammatory symptoms. Muckle-Wells syndrome is characterized by a recurrent urticarial eruption that is associated with episodic fever, myalgia, arthralgia, malaise, progressive sensorineural hearing loss, and amyloid nephropathy (the most severe complication)...

Hubert M Chodkiewicz, Aaron K Joseph
Ergonomic practice increases the productivity, quality, and longevity of the dermatologic surgeon. When used properly, magnification devices can be ergonomic and beneficial additions to the dermatologic surgeon's practice. Herein, we review the available magnification options for the dermatologic surgeon and evaluate the options based on cost, design, and functional advantages and disadvantages. Magnification for the dermatologic surgeon may be a useful tool for a healthier, more efficient, and higher-quality practice...
