Gerson Dellatorre, Wagner Bertolini, Caio Cesar Silva de Castro
Surgical management of vitiligo is considered an excellent terapeutic option for recalcitrant cases, provided the disease is stable and there is absence of Koebner phenomenom. Among surgical modalities, Suction Blister Epidermal Graft is a low cost and effective option (65 to 100% repigmentation can be achieved in up to 80% of patients). We describe how it can be optimized by using an alternative suction equipment, by customization of graft format and by application of an anesthetic technique that substantially reduces procedure time...

Nail changes are present in about 50% of psoriasis patients and tend to be refractory to conventional treatments. Pulsed dye laser has emerged as an alternative therapy. Our aim is to evaluate the efficacy of pulsed dye laser in nail psoriasis and the impact of treatment on quality of life. Fourteen patients were treated in monthly sessions for three months. The outcome assesment was made by the Nail Psoriasis Severity Index (NAPSI). The median improvement in the scores of the overall NAPSI, nail bed NAPSI, and nail matrix NAPSI were 44...

Basal cell carcinoma and Squamous cell carcinoma, referred to as non-melanoma skin cancer, are the most common malignancies in humans. Their incidence is increasing worldwide every year. In Brazil, even with the advent of educational campaigns on photoprotection and laws that banned tanning beds, they are the most frequent neoplasias, representing a public health problem recognized by the Ministry of health.

Pellagra is a nutritional disease caused by a deficiency of niacin. It may lead to death if not identified and treated timely. We review the literature and report a female patient presented with clinical features of pellagra as a complication of Crohn's disease.

We report a 42-year-old cocaine addicted female patient referred for evaluation of hard palate ulceration resulting in oro-sinus communication with difficulties in swallowing and phonation, an rhino-sinusitis. Acrylic and removable silicone prosthesis was prescribed to relieve severe functional disorders. It is essential that the patient permanently abandons cocaine use to perform surgical reconstruction.

Trichoscopy has become an essential tool for the diagnosis of various diseases that affect the hair and scalp. Through dermatoscopy we identified a set of findings that share a circular shape of hair shafts. The objective of this study is to distinguish among the various forms of circular hairs in order to identify their peculiarities and to describe in which skin disorders they can be found.

Natália Battisti Serafini, Cássio Battisti Serafini, Alanna Santoro Vinhas, Marcio Barbosa Godinho
Neurofibromatosis type 1 is a multisystem genetic disease of autosomal dominant transmission that reveals important cutaneous manifestations such as café-au-lait spots, multiple neurofibromas, and ephelides in skin fold areas, as well as hamartomatous lesions in the eyes, bones, glands, and central nervous system. Moyamoya disease is a rare progressive vaso-occlusive disorder that occurs with important ischemic cerebrovascular events. Despite the rarity of this association in childhood, children diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 1 and focal neurologic symptoms should be investigated for moyamoya syndrome...

Piccardi-Lassueur-Graham-Little syndrome is a rare entity characterized by progressive scarring alopecia of the scalp and keratotic papules on hairless skin, associated with non-scarring alopecia in the axilla and pubic area or lichen planus lesions. We describe the case of a 70-year-old woman who presented a Piccardi-Lasseur-Graham-Little syndrome, along with frontal fibrosing alopecia.

Salivary duct injury can be idiopathic, iatrogenic, or post-trauma and may result in sialocele or fistula. Most injuries regress spontaneously and botulinum toxin A is one of several therapeutic possibilities. We report a case of iatrogenic injury to the parotid duct after Mohs' micographic surgery for a squamous cell carcinoma excision in the left jaw region, treated by injection of botulinum toxin type A. Although the fistula by duct injury can be self-limiting, botulinum toxin injection by promoting the inactivity of the salivary gland allows rapid healing of the fistula...

Rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma is a rare vascular tumor that generally has a good prognosis. The authors describe a case of a newborn girl with a left cervical vascular lesion. Image exams were performed, and the lesion slowly decreased, leaving redundant skin. Considering all of the findings, a final diagnosis of a rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas was suspected.

Cutaneous drug reactions are adverse reactions to medications that may present with different clinical features, ranging from localized to generalized lesions. In this report we describe a case of an unusual drug reaction, resembling the morphology of Sweet syndrome lesions. The patient had a psychiatric illness and was using thioridazine hydrochloride for one year. He developed infiltrated and grouped erythematous lesions on the elbows and knees three days after commencing multiple drugs (promethazine, haloperidol, mirtazapine and levomepromazine)...

Infantile myofibromatosis is a mesenchymal disorder characterized by the fibrous proliferation of the skin, bone, muscle and viscera. It is the most common fibrous tumor in childhood. We present a newborn with skin and bone disease without visceral involvement, who showed good response to vinblastine and methotrexate. Clinical features, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment are reviewed.

Helena Toda-Brito, João Manuel Pires Aranha, Ermelindo Silva Tavares
Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei is a rare inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology that primarily affects young adults. Clinically, it is characterized by an asymptomatic papular eruption mainly involving the central face, typically on and around the eyelids. Characteristic histopathological features include dermal epithelioid cell granulomas with central necrosis and surrounding lymphocytic infiltrate with multinucleate giant cells. Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei has a spontaneously resolving course, yet can be cosmetically debilitating given the location and potential for scarring...

Morbihan disease is a rare condition characterized by chronic and persistent erythematous solid edema localized on the face. It is believed to be a complication of rosacea and may occur at any stage of the disease. Features of this condition include variable therapeutic response and great refractoriness. We report a case of a 61-year-old man with rosacea history diagnosed with Morbihan disease, who showed excellent therapeutic response with the combination of deflazacort and oral isotretinoin but developed recurrence after corticosteroid discontinuation...

Dermoscopy is a non-invasive technique widely used to aid in the characterization and diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions. Recently, it has also been employed for the evaluation of non-pigmented skin tumours, and inflammatory and infectious cutaneous diseases. Although the diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis is confirmed by the demonstration of amastigotes in infected skin or by the growth of promastigotes in culture medium, dermoscopy could be useful as a further diagnostic test. We report a patient with a nodular lesion located on the right cheek for almost two years...
