BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis supppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the apocrine sweat glands affecting 1-4% of the population. While surgical excision is a mainstay of therapy, lesions often recur. Biologic therapies, including tumor necrosis factor-α and IL-12/23 inhibitors, are effective for mild to moderate HS. However, longitudinal studies investigating biologic therapy in conjunction with surgery are limited. The purpose of this analysis was to investigate impact of surgery and biologic therapy on HS disease activity...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to determine the presence of anti-Dsg1 and Dsg3 antibodies in healthy subjects of the high Peruvian Amazon (Tuemal, Rodriguez de Mendoza province, department of Amazonas) to establish the theoretical presence of environmental factors or triggers in the area. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Cross-sectional study. The study population included persons of any age or gender, clinically healthy, who were evaluated by a dermatologist to confirm the absence of blistering diseases...

Tsung-Ju Lee, Yu-Hung Wu
BACKGROUND: Epidermolytic acanthoma (EA) is an uncommon benign cutaneous lesion. Multiple epidermolytic acanthomas (multiple EAs) are rarely reported. METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients diagnosed with multiple EAs between 2005 and 2017 from our dermatopathology database and analyzed their clinical, pathological, and immunohistochemical features. We also evaluated the association of multiple EAs with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. RESULTS: In total, eight patients (average age 51 years; 3 : 1 male predominance) with multiple EAs were found...

BACKGROUND: Becker's nevus (BN) presents as a hairy patch or plaque with or without proliferation of the dermal smooth muscles. BN has been described as acquired as found in a similar entity, congenital smooth muscle hamartoma (CSMH). This study was aimed at evaluating the clinicopathological aspects of BN in Korean cases in differential diagnosis with CSMH. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of 103 patients histopathologically diagnosed as having BN or CSMH...

Khalaf Kridin, Reuven Bergman
BACKGROUND: No ethnic or geographic predisposition to bullous pemphigoid (BP) was reported so far. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate trends in the incidence of BP in northern Israel, shedding light on differences between two distinct ethnic populations who inhabit the same region, namely Jews and Arabs. METHODS: Bullous pemphigoid incidence was retrospectively estimated from January 2000-December 2015 in two Israeli regions with a total population of 1...

Christopher Dainton, Charlene H Chu
BACKGROUND: Skin disorders are prevalent on primary care medical service trips in Latin America and the Caribbean and commonly include scabies, superficial mycoses, and pyoderma. There have been no previous attempts to describe protocols that international volunteer clinicians use in managing these patients. The purpose of this study was to collect North American clinical protocols used by sending organizations in their volunteer operations in Latin America and the Caribbean, summarize the most common pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management strategies, and compare these to published international practice recommendations...

Romain Blaizot, Christophe Vanhecke, Philippe Le Gall, Alexandre Duvignaud, Marie-Catherine Receveur, Denis Malvy
BACKGROUND: Furuncular myiasis is likely to be seen by Western dermatologists because of the increasing number of international travelers but remains unfamiliar to most of them, who tend to refer these patients to hospitals. Different treatments have been proposed, but many of them are not achievable in outpatient consultation. METHODS: We reported three typical cases of furuncular myiasis, according to each species involved, and proposed diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines for dermatologists in outpatient consultation...

BACKGROUND: Syphilis remains a major challenge and a complex diagnosis. We aim to evaluate the role of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in Treponema pallidum (Tp) detection in various types of biological samples in the diagnosis of early syphilis. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study including all attendees of the STI clinic with clinical suspicion of early syphilis. One or more specimens for the detection of Tp by PCR testing were collected. RESULTS: The overall sensitivity of Tp PCR test was 82...

BACKGROUND: The presence of HLA-B*15:02 allele is considered a risk factor for development of Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN) in patients taking aromatic anticonvulsant drugs like carbamazepine and phenytoin. The genetic association is ethnicity specific. Testing for HLA-B*15:02 allele is suggested as a prerequisite before starting carbamazepine in certain ethnic groups. There are only a few/no studies from south India on HLA association of SJS/TEN. AIMS: To identify any association between HLA-B*15:02 allele and SJS/TEN induced by carbamazepine/phenytoin among native population...

REVIEW
Juan Carlos Robles-Méndez, Paulina Rizo-Frías, Maira Elizabeth Herz-Ruelas, Amit G Pandya, Jorge Ocampo Candiani
Lichen planus pigmentosus (LPP) is considered a rare variant of lichen planus (LP). It is characterized by acquired dark brown to gray macular pigmentation located on sun-exposed areas of the face, neck, and flexures, commonly found in dark-skinned patients. In patients with LPP, an inflammatory lichenoid response results in marked pigmentary incontinence. It has been associated with hepatitis C virus, sun exposure, and contactants such as mustard oil and nickel. LPP-inversus affects fair and dark skin, predominantly involving flexural and intertriginous areas, while sun-exposed areas are spared; friction is an associated trigger...

BACKGROUND: Vitiligo is essentially a clinical diagnosis, and dermoscopy may aid in noninvasive confirmation of diagnosis by excluding other clinically simulating hypopigmentary conditions. More importantly, dermoscopy is rapidly gaining ground as an important adjunct tool to evaluate disease activity. AIM: To study the dermoscopic features of vitiligo and ascertain their correlation with disease activity. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of dermoscopy of 60 cases suffering from vitiligo was undertaken...
