The Health Frontiers in Tijuana (HFiT) clinic is a binational partnership between the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine (San Diego, California); the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California School of Medicine (Tijuana, Mexico); and Desayunador Salesiano Padre Chava, a community grassroots organization in Tijuana, Mexico. Health Frontiers in Tijuana provides accessible quality health care for the underserved in Tijuana's Zona Norte. This article is a narrative meant to share my clinical experience as a dermatology resident who worked with HFiT to establish teledermatology services at this clinic...

Joseph Dyer, Jonathan Weiss, W Stephen Steiner, Julie A Barber
Primary cutaneous Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection is rare, particularly among immunocompetent patients. We present the case of a purportedly healthy patient with primary cutaneous MAC infection arising within the excision margins of multiple infiltrating squamous cell carcinomas.

Keratoacanthomas (KAs) are common skin lesions known for their rapid growth and spontaneous regression. Keratoacanthomas also can occur in sites of prior trauma, such as surgical scars. We report a case of multiple KAs occurring in the site of trauma from a prior surgery and de novo as well as the response to treatment with intralesional methotrexate (MTX).

Vikram Prasad, Wynn H Kao, Grace F Kao
Primary cutaneous apocrine carcinomas are uncommon malignant neoplasms that can be difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish histologically from metastatic breast carcinomas. We present the case of a 71-year-old man with a 5-year history of extensive ulcerated plaques on the posterior neck and posterior scalp. Biopsy revealed a poorly differentiated infiltrating adenocarcinoma consistent with either primary cutaneous apocrine carcinoma or occult metastatic breast carcinoma. Immunohistochemical analysis demonstrated positive staining for cytokeratin (CK) 7, estrogen receptor, and progesterone receptor, and negative staining for p63, podoplanin, CK20, and thyroid transcription factor 1...

Psoriasis is a common dermatologic problem with a chronic and sometimes debilitating course. Psoriasis can impair a service member's ability to perform job-related activities and should certainly be treated; however, use of immunosuppressive treatments can prevent deployment to strategic locations around the world for numerous reasons, such as the need for laboratory monitoring, minimal access to climate-controlled storage, and potential increased risk of exposure to virulent pathogens while on these medications...

Cellulite is a cosmetic condition of subcutaneous fat herniation through fibrous connective tissue that results in a dimpled appearance of the skin. Occurring in approximately 85% to 90% of all women worldwide, cellulite has been well studied. The result has been the development of a plethora of treatment protocols yielding little to no success. We describe a noninvasive mechanical treatment for women with cellulite, evaluating the safety and effectiveness of a technique that utilizes a unique patented device for the reduction of the visible appearance of cellulite...

Favus is an uncommon form of tinea capitis (TC) currently seen in geographic areas with poor sanitation and limited access to health care such as emerging nations. Several variants of this condition have been described including one exhibiting a plaque composed of parchmentlike material. The makeup of this plaque has not been described. Tinea capitis is rare in adults, particularly when the infectious agent is Trichophyton rubrum, and affected patients often exhibit comorbidities associated with diminished immune surveillance...

Vitiligo is a loss of pigment occurring in approximately 0.4% to 2% of the worldwide population. The aim of this study was to determine and characterize barriers to access of care in US patients with vitiligo. An Internet-based, deidentified survey consisting of 82 questions about topics including demographics, recommendations for care, and/or barriers to receiving recommended care was designed and distributed to member participants in an online vitiligo support community consisting of patients (and parents/guardians of adolescents)...

Sarcoidosis is a chronic multisystem disease characterized by the formation of noncaseating granulomas in multiple organs, including the skin. An association between multisystem sarcoidosis and an increased risk for malignancy has been established. Dermatologists should be aware of the increased risk for nonmelanoma skin cancers in patients with sarcoidosis. We report a series of 3 patients with primarily cutaneous sarcoidosis who presented with new-onset cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Two patients were black women and 1 patient presented with lesions of cutaneous sarcoidosis arising concurrently with SCCs in the same location, distinguishable only by biopsy...

Medications in dermatology are used in a variety of different methods and dosages and for numerous different diseases entities that are not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA); however, there are medications that have only recently hit the market that require our attention, as they are either FDA approved for the intended dermatologic use or could be effective in treating conditions that previously have been poorly managed.

Malignant melanoma has continually shown a pattern of increased incidence and mortality in the last 50 years. Currently, wide local excision is the mainstay of treatment of primary cutaneous melanomas. Imiquimod has been shown to clear cases of melanoma in situ, but its role in the treatment of invasive cutaneous melanomas is unknown. We present the case of a patient who achieved complete histologic clearance of invasive melanoma following treatment with topical imiquimod.
