How do we increase patient adherence to therapy? As dermatologists, we will see thousands of patients over the course of our careers, most with treatable conditions that will improve with therapy and others with chronic or genetic conditions that will at least be made more tolerable with therapy. Approximately half of patients with chronic conditions are adherent to therapy. Why some patients adhere to treatment and others do not can be difficult to understand. The emotional makeup, culture, family background, socioeconomic status, and motivation of each person is unique, which leads to complexity...

The adverse impact of chronic corticosteroid therapy on wound healing has been well characterized, as has abnormal wound healing known to occur in the classic type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). In contrast, abnormal wound healing is absent in cases of EDS benign hypermobility type (EDS-BHT). We present the case of a patient with EDS-BHT with no history of abnormal wound healing who developed large nonhealing ulcers to sites of minor trauma after initiating therapy with high-dose systemic corticosteroids for dermatomyositis...

Sneddon syndrome (SS) is a rare condition and the diagnosis is made only when other more common disease entities have been excluded. Common manifestations in SS patients include hypertension, coronary artery disease, venous thrombosis, miscarriages, psychiatric disturbances, and arterial and venous thrombotic events. Most patients present in their early 30s with classic neurovascular and dermatologic signs. Currently, the main criteria for the diagnosis of SS include livedo racemosa, focal neurological deficits or evidence of stroke on magnetic resonance imaging, or characteristic vascular alterations seen on biopsy...

Patient-reported treatment outcomes are important for evaluating the impact of drug therapies on patient experience. A randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter, phase 3 study was conducted in 961 participants to assess patient perception of efficacy, utility, and effect on quality of life (QOL) of an azelaic acid (AzA) 15% foam formulation for the treatment of papulopustular rosacea (PPR). Secondary end points included patient-reported global assessment of treatment response, global assessment of tolerability, and opinion on cosmetic acceptability and practicability of product use...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an acquired, autoimmune, subepidermal blistering disorder. A possible paraneoplastic association has been suggested; however, debate remains regarding the precise relationship of these neoplasms with BP. We present a case of recalcitrant BP in a 67-year-old man with a pancreatic neoplasm that was found to be a lymphoepithelial cyst. Immunoperoxidase staining of the cyst demonstrated C3d along the basement membrane of the stratified squamous epithelium, suggesting that the BP may have involved the lymphoepithelial cyst itself...

Educating patients about the risks of treatment is obligatory. An inherent problem with risk education is that patients can become terrified of rare risks associated with the treatment, resulting in possible treatment refusal, poor adherence, and continued disease symptoms. Such fears are a common obstacle observed with the use of biologic medications to treat psoriasis. In this article, we use graphical presentation of psoriasis safety data to illustrate how patients subjectively interpret objective information...

Primary cutaneous anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (pcALCL) is part of a spectrum of CD30+ primary cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorders (pcLPDs) that also includes lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP). Localized radiotherapy at doses of 34 to 44 Gy is first-line treatment of pcALCL, but the use of low-dose radiotherapy for pcALCL has not been reported. We present the case of a patient with a history of pcALCL/LyP who was treated with low-dose radiotherapy while on oral low-dose methotrexate (MTX) once weekly. This report suggests that low-dose radiotherapy can be an effective palliative treatment of pcALCL...

Diet has been considered as an influence in dermatology for several years. Unfortunately, although correlation has been breached, causation is yet to be determined. Over the last couple years, a few reviews of the literature have been published regarding the influence of diet in acne vulgaris and atopic dermatitis. This article reviews some dietary restrictions and supplements that may have beneficial effects in managing patients with acne vulgaris and atopic dermatitis.

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune subepidermal blistering disease that most commonly affects adults older than 60 years, whereas psoriasis vulgaris (PV) is a chronic immune-mediated disease that affects both children and adults. Bullous pemphigoid and PV may coexist with each other as well as with various other internal disorders, which may lead to early death. We report the case of a 35-year-old man with a 15-year history of PV and obesity who developed tense blisters with annular arrangement and normal-appearing perilesional skin localized mainly on the trunk, arms, and legs resembling linear IgA bullous dermatosis...
