BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is a scarring alopecia whose prevalence is increasing. The pathogenesis of this disease is not well known. Genetic, environmental, hormonal and autoimmunity related factors have been considered; however, only a few cases of familial frontal fibrosing alopecia have been reported. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed at University Hospital in Granada (Spain). Twenty patients with frontal fibrosing alopecia belonging to nine different families were included, and clinical and dermoscopic features were analysed...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Erosive oral lichen planus (LP) may be painful and debilitating. Symptomatic oral LP has been treated with a wide spectrum of topical and systemic therapies, but few have been evaluated in large series. Hydroxychloroquine is suggested to be effective in oral LP. METHODS: Twenty-one consecutive patients with erosive, biopsy-confirmed oral LP were prescribed. hydroxychloroquine sulphate 400 mg/day. Symptomatic improvement was evaluated by means of a visual analogue scale into three groups: no change, moderate to marked improvement and complete remission...

Alopecia areata (AA) severity varies from a single small patch to complete loss of scalp hair, body hair, eyelashes and eyebrows. While 40% of all affected individuals only ever get one patch and will achieve a spontaneous complete durable remission within 6 months, 27% will develop additional patches but still achieve complete durable remission within 12 months and 33% will develop chronic AA. Without systemic treatment, 55% of individuals with chronic AA will have persistent multifocal relapsing and remitting disease, 30% will ultimately develop alopecia totalis and 15% will develop alopecia universalis...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of cutaneous leishmaniasis remains a challenge; new physical treatment modalities including laser systems are of interest in the treatment of localized lesions. METHOD: Fourteen patients (10 females) with 20 lesions of Old World cutaneous leishmaniasis underwent weekly treatments of 1540 nm erbium glass fractional laser (Palomar) using 10 mm spot size hand piece in four passes of 50-70 mJ/cm2 fluence and 10 ms pulse duration. RESULTS: Twelve lesions were available for assessment: six (50%) improved at 6 weeks and eleven lesions (91...

Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is a primary patterned cicatricial alopecia with a complicated pathogenesis yet to be fully understood. FFA appears to be increasing in incidence worldwide, especially in the last decade. In order to consider current treatment options, we reviewed current evidence for its pathogenesis comprising immune-mediated, genetic, hormonal and environmental factors. Th1-mediated inflammation with collapse of hair follicle immune privilege and bulge epithelial stem cell destruction, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-γ) depletion and epithelial-mesenchymal transition are key events leading to permanent hair follicle destruction in FFA...

Harvey Ronald Smith
Peer-derived Australian Mohs data were used to define volume outliers and a benchmark for quality improvement. Higher volume practice was linked to less complex anatomical locations for surgery. Reflection on individual practice compared to peers may reduce the number of volume outliers in Mohs surgery.

High-frequency ultrasonography (HFUS) can help improve dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) recognition. We present three cases of DFSP in which a "jellyfish-like" sonographic pattern was a useful adjunct in formulating the diagnosis. In addition, we review all DFSP ultrasound images available in the literature.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: There are limited population-based data documenting the incidence and management of lentigo maligna (LM) and invasive lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM). We report the data on occurrence and management of LM and LMM in an Australian population. METHODS: Prospective collection of incidence and clinician-reported management of melanoma in situ (MIS; n = 450, capped) and localised invasive melanoma (n = 3251) notified to the New South Wales Cancer Registry over 12-months in 2006-2007...

Burhan Ahmed, Sami Gritli
Growth retardation, Alopecia, Pseudoanodontia and Optic atrophy (GAPO) syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive condition whose cardinal features include a recognizable craniofacial dysmorphosis, growth retardation, alopecia, pseudoanodontia, and premature aging. We report on a 2-year-old Pakistani man affected with GAPO syndrome who additionally shows an androgenetic-like alopecia with normal testosterone levels and telogen hair loss. These are novel findings in GAPO syndrome.
