REVIEW
Margit Marisa Polcz, Deshan Frank Sebaratnam, Pablo Fernández-Peñas
Atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) is a rare spindle cell neoplasm predominantly found on the head and neck of elderly individuals with sun-damaged skin, with no evidence-based guidelines for their management. A systematic retrospective review of the literature focusing on treatment modality found a recurrence and metastasis rate of 8.0% (5.6% when adjusted for incomplete excisions) and 0.5% for local excision and 4.6% and 3.2% for Mohs micrographic surgery, respectively. Our results suggest that with clear surgical margins, AFX is unlikely to recur and metastases are rare, with significantly higher rates in the immunosuppressed population...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Juvenile melanoma (before 20 years of age) is a rare condition with poorly defined risk factors. We describe features of juvenile melanoma in Western Australia over the last two decades. METHOD: A retrospective review of juvenile melanomas was conducted from prospectively maintained databases, reviewed for patients' characteristics, clinical information, histology, treatment, recurrence and survival data. RESULTS: Altogether 95 cases of juvenile melanoma were reported to the Western Australian Cancer Registry between 2000 and 2013...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to investigate treatment modalities and outcomes in oral mucosal melanoma. METHODS: The clinical and pathological data of 38 consecutive patients with oral mucosal melanoma were retrospectively analyzed. Patients' characteristics were analyzed and overall survival (OS) rates were calculated. RESULTS: Sixteen patients had stage III (42%), 19 IVA (50%), and three had stage IVC (8%) disease...

We report the first case series of hidradenitis suppurativa in patients of Indigenous Australian heritage. The incidence and ethnicity of populations affected by this condition are not known. The high comorbid disease burden and socioeconomic disadvantage that is well recognised in the Indigenous Australian population poses significant challenges to therapeutic outcomes.

Immediate and delayed hypersensitivity reactions may occur after the first or many exposures to tocilizumab, and they have varying presentations. Here, we describe a Wolf's isotopic response that manifested in a patient as erythema on the same site of a previous healed herpes zoster infection. This phenomenon has rarely been reported in the literature.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of hand eczema among nurses in northern China and to analyse associated risk factors. METHODS: A retrospective self-reported questionnaire was designed and distributed to 1322 nurses who were selected from three regional hospitals. Risk factors related to hand eczema in nurses were analysed using multivariable logistic regression. RESULTS: Hand eczema was present in 183/934 respondents (20%) and was not significantly associated with gender or workplace (P > 0...

Acute generalised exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is a rare toxicoderma characterised by an acute onset rash, with many sterile pustules on the surface, high fever and increased acute phase reactants. We report the case of a patient who presented to the dermatology department with an AGEP and polyarthritis, in which a novel CARD14 mutation was identified. The pathophysiological mechanism of AGEP remains unclear, although mutations in the IL36RN gene have been identified in a small subset of AGEP patients. Similarly, mutations in the CARD14 gene have been linked to pustular types of psoriasis and familiar cases of pityriasis rubra pilaris; however, there are no reports associating mutations in the CARD14 gene with AGEP...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Lymphocytic hidradenitis is a non-specific histopathological feature observed in many dermatoses such as lupus erythematosus, morphea or scleroderma. When it occurs it is usually accompanied by the other distinctive histological features of those conditions. Isolated lymphocytic hidradenitis is uncommon and its clinical features and associated underlying medical conditions are still undetermined. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of patients who clinically presented with annular erythema between 2000 and 2016...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Bacterial skin infections in Indigenous children in Australia frequently lead them to access primary health care. This systematic review aims to identify and analyse available studies describing the treatment and prevention of bacterial skin infections in Indigenous children. METHODS: Electronic databases including Scopus, MEDLINE, CINAHL, ProQuest, Informit and Google Scholar were searched. Studies in English published between August 1994 and September 2016, with the subject of bacterial skin infections involving Indigenous children and conducted in Australia, New Zealand, the USA or Canada were selected...
