Congenital hemangiomas (CHs) are fully developed hemangiomas that are present at birth. There are 2 possible types: rapidly involuting CHs (RICHs) and noninvoluting CHs (NICHs). We conducted a retrospective study (2008-2012) of 6 patients (2 females, 4 males) with CHs (mean age, 16 days). We analyzed the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and clinical outcome of CHs over this 5-year period.

The reported sensitivity and specificity of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for bullous pemphigoid (BP) diagnosis is approximately 87% and 98%, respectively. These statistics suggest that ELISA is a reliable diagnostic test; therefore, the use of ELISA for BP diagnosis has increased. We report the case of a man who was diagnosed with BP and was treated for 3 years based on a positive ELISA for IgG against BP180. After reevaluation, his revised diagnosis was not consistent with BP based on clinical presentation, histopathology, and direct immunofluorescence (DIF)...

Onychomadesis is the proximal separation of the nail plate from the nail matrix due to a temporary cessation of nail growth. It can occur in children of all ages including neonates. Diagnosis is made clinically through palpation and inspection of the nail plate. Physicians should consider underlying associations. A review of the patient's history for any viral illnesses 1 to 2 months prior to nail changes often will help identify the causative disease. Onychomadesis typically is mild and self-limited. There is no specific treatment, but a conservative approach to management is recommended with treatment of any underlying causes and supportive care...

Submental fat (SMF) accumulation is a cosmetically distressing concern for which there have been recent advances in minimally invasive and noninvasive therapeutic options. In this article, we review the newest treatments available for SMF, including laser-assisted lipolysis (LAL), radiofrequency (RF)-assisted lipolysis, deoxycholic acid (DCA), and noninvasive devices. These treatments provide additional options for patients seeking nonsurgical approaches to treatment of SMF.

Adekemi Akingboye, Heather Schultz, Gina A Taylor
Epidermal nevus syndrome (ENS), also known as Solomon syndrome, is a rare neurocutaneous disorder defined by mosaicism. Epidermal nevus syndrome may be associated with a variety of systemic findings, several of which have been described in the literature, including but not limited to central nervous system abnormalities and internal malignancies. There is a paucity of reports of patients with both epidermal nevi and papillary transitional cell bladder carcinoma in the literature. We present a rare case of systematized epidermal nevi associated with development of papillary transitional cell bladder carcinoma in a young woman...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most prevalent malignancy in white individuals and continues to be a serious health problem. Individuals who have sustained exposure to UV radiation are at the highest risk for developing BCC. The aim of this study was to compare the features of BCC in outdoor workers (OWs) with a history of occupational exposure to UV radiation versus indoor workers (IWs). We found that OWs are more likely to develop nodular BCC with no increased risk for superficial BCC. The age of onset of BCC was older in OWs than in IWs...

Sahil Sekhon, Susan T Nedorost
Adverse drug reactions result in a substantial number of hospital admissions and inpatient events. Diagnosis usually is made with clinical judgment and circumstantiality without diagnostic testing. Furthermore, even in situations where diagnostic testing is performed, no safe gold standard tests exist. Oral rechallenge is currently the gold standard but carries the risk of recrudescence of severe allergic symptoms. Other tests include skin prick tests, the lymphocyte transformation test, immunohistochemistry, and patch testing...

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare autoimmune disease of the cartilaginous structures of the body with many systemic manifestations including meningoencephalitis (ME). We present a case of a man with RP-associated ME that was responsive to steroid treatment. An updated literature review of 7 cases of RP-associated ME also is provided. Early diagnosis of this condition may be of benefit to this select population of patients, and further research regarding the prognosis, mechanisms, and treatment of RP may be necessary in the future...

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.
