BACKGROUND: In-training assessments (ITA) aim to evaluate trainees' progress and give valuable feedback on their performance. Many factors can affect supervisors during their completion of assessments and these can influence the final results recorded. METHODS: This is the second part of a study of supervisors of the Australasian College of Dermatologists (ACD) and presents the qualitative data on their opinions of the ACD ITA process and the influences on their ITA ratings...

Yvonne Nguyen, Gayle Fischer
Chronic vulvovaginal candidiasis is usually responsive to therapy with oral antifungals. We present a case series of 13 patients with this condition who were also using a levonorgestrel intrauterine system (LNG-IUS). All cases responded to ongoing oral fluconazole therapy while the LNG-IUS was in situ. The LNG-IUS was removed in six patients and of these, two experienced clinical improvement with lower fluconazole dosage requirements and three experienced complete resolution of symptoms. One remains on fluconazole 100 mg daily...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: This study documents the perspectives of Australian dermatologists on the adequacy of teaching and training in skin of colour (SOC), and their confidence in diagnosing and treating common medical, surgical and cosmetic issues in SOC and to gauge their desire for further training in this area. METHODS: Surveys were distributed to Australasian Dermatologists during their annual scientific meeting in Melbourne, Australia in 2014. Completed surveys from dermatologists nationwide were collected and evaluated...

Impairment of the protein C pathway, detectable by reduced plasma levels of activated protein C (APC), are risk factors for venous thrombosis. Activated protein C maintains clotting homeostasis by regulation of pro-coagulant factors Va and VIIIa. Both infection and the factor V Leiden mutation reduce the formation of APC from protein C in the blood. With low levels of APC, excess factors Va and VIIIa exist, increasing the risk of thrombus formation. Livedo racemosa is characterised by a striking, violaceous branch-like pattering of the skin...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Data on biologic drug survival in real-world psoriasis treatment are limited. There is a need to evaluate long-term trends of biologic use outside the realm of clinical trials. METHODS: A multicentre chart review was conducted with patients' data from September 2005 to September 2014. Kaplan-Meier plot analysis was used to determine 5-year drug survival rates. A log-rank test was used to compare the rates of drug survival between the studied biologics...

Rebecca Nguyen, Anna Braue, Chris Baker, Peter Foley
This 5-year retrospective analysis is of 22 patients who participated in the product familiarisation program (PFP) at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne, prior to the listing of infliximab on the Pharmaceutical Benefit Scheme. Criteria for inclusion were being an adult with chronic plaque psoriasis, having a psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) score of at least 15 with an inadequate response or intolerance to three of the following: phototherapy, acitretin, cyclosporin and methotrexate. Participants were infused with infliximab 5 mg/kg on the standard induction (weeks 0, 2 and 6) and maintenance (8-weekly) protocols...

Kohei Nojima, Takeshi Namiki, Shown Tokoro, Keiko Miura, Hiroo Yokozeki
An early and accurate diagnosis is critical for the optimal management of subungual melanoma; the absence of Hutchinson's nail sign makes an accurate diagnosis extremely difficult. Previous publications show that most subungual melanomas have Hutchinson's nail sign. In this report, we present a rare case of a subungual melanoma without Hutchinson's nail sign and discuss the importance of cautious evaluations of Hutchinson's nail sign by dermoscopy.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The simplified psoriasis index (SPI) is a three-part multidimensional tool incorporating disease severity, psychosocial impact and historical course completed by the health-care professional (professional SPI, [proSPI]) or the patient (self-assessment SPI, [saSPI]). We aimed to assess the validity and response distribution of proSPI and saSPI in patients with psoriasis undergoing phototherapy. METHODS: The validity and response distribution of SPI was assessed by recording saSPI and proSPI in patients with psoriasis before and after a course of phototherapy...

Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium cationic detergent present in a number of household products, which can act as a major skin irritant. We present the case of six children who developed granular parakeratosis after exposure to benzalkonium chloride in laundry rinse aids, presenting as a brightly erythematous, tender but minimally pruritic, intertriginous eruption followed by superficial desquamation. The eruptions resolved over 3-4 weeks after cessation of exposure.

Hidradenomas are tumours that arise from the adnexal structures, both eccrine and apocrine and are histologically benign. The tumours that arise from eccrine differentiation are known as poroid hidradenomas and when they arise from the apocrine glands they are called nodular hidradenomas. In our centre a 13-year-old boy presented with a slow-growing, painless erythematous fungating nodule on the left upper arm over a period of 18 months at the site of the BCG vaccination. The nodule was surgically excised and sent for histopathological examination, leading to a diagnosis of nodular hidradenoma...

Autoimmune progesterone dermatitis (APD) is a rare skin condition with a varying morphology, which appears on a monthly basis during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and resolves spontaneously with the endogenous decrease in progesterone during menses. We present the case of 39-year-old multiparous Caucasian woman with generalised, self-limited urticaria in her perimenstrual period. APD was diagnosed in light of the cyclical nature of the symptoms. An intradermal test with the administration of 0.5 mg/mL of medroxyprogesterone acetate showed a positive result...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: To describe the method of diagnosis, clinical management and adherence to clinical practice guidelines for melanoma patients at high risk of a subsequent primary melanoma, and compare this with melanoma patients at lower risk. METHODS: The Melanoma Patterns of Care study was a population-based, observational study based on doctors' reported clinical management of melanoma patients in New South Wales, Australia, diagnosed with in situ or invasive melanoma over a 12-month period from October 2006...
