BACKGROUND: Alopecia areata is a relatively common condition affecting patients seen in community dermatology clinics. A 2014 study implicated the JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor, ruxolitinib in short-term treatment of alopecia, however little information exists about the long-term use in otherwise healthy individuals in the community setting. METHODS: A patient with chronic alopecia areata and a patient with acute onset alopecia universalis were treated with oral ruxolitinib for over a year...

BACKGROUND: Incidence of skin cancer is rising in Hispanic populations and minorities often have more advanced disease and experience higher mortality rates. Community health worker (CHW) programs to promote primary and secondary prevention show promise for many diseases, but an adequate training program in skin cancer prevention is not documented. We present a model for CHW specialty certification in skin cancer prevention for underserved, Hispanic communities. METHODS: We designed a culturally appropriate CHW training program according to an empowerment model of education for skin cancer prevention and detection in underserved Hispanic communities...

BACKGROUND: Gathering health information from Internet websites is increasingly utilized by patients. No data exist about hidradenitis suppurativa (HS)-related online health information. Thus, we aimed to study the quality, popularity, readability, and timeliness of the most frequented websites on HS. METHODS: Google Trends was used to evaluate the public interest in HS. An Internet search on Google was performed for the terms "hidradenitis suppurativa," "acne inversa," and "Verneuil's disease...

BACKGROUND: The number of very elderly patients who require surgery for cutaneous tumors is increasing. However, there is limited information on the safety of cutaneous surgery in such patients. METHODS: To evaluate the safety of cutaneous surgery in patients 90 years of age and older, we retrospectively reviewed the elderly patients who underwent surgery for cutaneous tumors under local anesthesia. Consecutive patients 90 years of age and older and 75-80 years old were included in the elderly group and the control group...

BACKGROUND: Histoid leprosy is a rare variant of lepromatous leprosy characterized by varied morphological and histopathological appearance while having a high bacillary load. These factors contribute to an ominous threat to the elimination status of leprosy, whereby these patients may act as a reservoir of infection. OBJECTIVE: To identify the clinicopathological characteristics of histoid leprosy in Chitwan, Nepal. METHODS: A retrospective hospital-based study spanning a period of 6 years was carried out at our department...

Porphyrias are a group of intriguing genetic diseases of the heme pathway, of which porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is the most common. Resulting from a defect in enzymes in the porphyria pathway, PCT has been linked to several conditions. Recent studies have demonstrated a change in thinking regarding the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and development of PCT. The exacerbation of PCT with contraction of HIV is now believed to result from coinfection from the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Blistering of sun-exposed skin, a classic presenting sign of PCT, is not exclusive to the condition...

BACKGROUND: Deep cutaneous fungal infections, including subcutaneous mycoses and systemic fungal infection with cutaneous involvement, cause significant morbidity and mortality in light of increasing immunocompromised patients and global warming. Although a few studies reviewed deep fungal infections in temperate regions, a relevant study in tropical regions is lacking. We evaluated features of deep cutaneous fungal infections in southern Taiwan among the tropical regions. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all histopathological specimens with deep cutaneous fungal infections in a single referral center from 2001 to 2014 and successfully identified 23 cases...

REVIEW
Louis Habbema, Anne Berthe Halk, Martino Neumann, Wilma Bergman
Recently, the unregulated use of untested synthetic alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) analogues, commonly known as melanotan I and II, appears to have increased. These analogues are primarily used for their tan-stimulating effects. Dermatologists see many patients in their clinic who tan. This review provides an overview of the risks of the unregulated use of these substances. Other topics discussed here include the history and safety of afamelanotide, which is the only α-MSH analogue that is approved for use in a limited number of medical indications...

BACKGROUND: The 4th generation topical corticosteroids (TCS) have demonstrated a most favorablerisk-benefit ratio. Methylprednisolone aceponate (MPA) is a non-halogenated corticosteroid with a methyl group at C6, which confers higher intrinsic activity. MPA is included in the group of potent TCS (category III/IV). METHODS: A literature review is carried out of the clinical efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and adverse effects of MPA, especially for the treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD)...

BACKGROUND: Although the exact incidence of pediatric oral lichen planus (OLP) is unknown, the oral mucosa seems to be less commonly involved, and the clinical presentation is often atypical. The aim of the study is to present a case series of OLP in childhood. METHODS: From our database, we retrospectively selected and analyzed the clinical data of OLP patients under the age of 18 where the diagnosis had been confirmed by histopathological analysis. RESULTS: The case series from our database shows eight patients, four males and four females...

Dan Slodownik, Shlomo Moshe, Eli Sprecher, Ilan Goldberg
BACKGROUND: Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most frequent type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. MF has long been considered to develop as the result of a combination of genetic defects and exogenous triggers. Although no specific MF-associated environmental trigger has been established to date, some studies have suggested that occupational exposures may occasionally trigger the onset of MF. OBJECTIVE: In this observational study, we aimed at underscoring the potential association between occupational exposure and MF...
