REVIEW
Shawn Shih, Amor Khachemoune
Acquired digital fibrokeratoma (ADFK) is a rare, benign, fibrous tumor that most often occurs on fingers. It may resemble a rudimentary supernumerary digit and is often misdiagnosed as another common benign condition, such as common wart. It is typically asymptomatic and occurs as a solitary nodule less than 1 cm in diameter. Oftentimes ADFK shares clinical and/or histologic resemblance with other benign and malignant cutaneous conditions so it is crucial that careful examination is undertaken. In this article, we will discuss the clinical presentation, epidemiology, etiology, dermoscopic and histologic findings, management, and differential diagnoses for ADFK, with the hope that this review will facilitate timely diagnosis and management for this distinct condition...

BACKGROUND: The most widely recognized eyebrow model was described by Westmore in 1974. With the rapidly changing concept of beauty, an accurate up-to-date model is needed. METHODS: The Westmore model was tested on fashion models that were randomly selected from the covers of the 1965-1975 (group 1) and 2006-2016 (group 2) Vogue magazine. The eyebrows of fashion models, which represent the beauty ideals of these decades, were objectively measured and compared. We proposed a modified eyebrow model more adapted to the modern standards of beauty, applied it to group 2, and objectively compared it to the Westmore model...

BACKGROUND: Connective tissue autoimmune diseases (CTADs) constitute a group of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis; systemic lupus erythematosus; mixed connective tissue disease; calcinosis, Raynaud's phenomenon, esophageal dysmotility, sclerodactyly, and telangiectasia (CREST) syndrome; scleroderma; dermatomyositis; and Sjögren syndrome. There are few studies on the alterations in filiform papillae in CTAD. Thus, the objective of this work was to determine whether there are changes in the macroscopic and dermoscopic patterns of filiform papillae...

BACKGROUND: Pityriasis rotunda is a rare skin disease characterized by the presence of multiple, round or oval, sharply demarcated hyperpigmented scaly patches. It has been described in Japan, South Africa, and in some other countries. The cause of pityriasis rotunda is usually idiopathic but may be associated with certain internal malignancy or systemic diseases. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to describe this rare entity in Jordan in a retrospective study during the last 10 years...

BACKGROUND: Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is used to treat cutaneous malignancies in locations to maximize tissue sparing. The authors' aim is to demonstrate the utility of conservative thickness layers (CTL) in MMS and review patient and tumor characteristics and the potential anatomic locations where this technique may be most useful. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients with tumors treated with CTL in MMS of 339 tumors, recording patient demographics, tumor characteristics, MMS stages for clearance, repairs, complications, and follow-up...

BACKGROUND: A paucity of knowledge exists regarding the use of ertapenem in hidradenitis suppurativa. Our retrospective chart review and telephone interview aims to investigate the utility of intravenous ertapenem in severe, refractory hidradenitis suppurativa. METHODS: This retrospective chart review and telephone interview included patients with severe, refractory hidradenitis suppurativa treated with intravenous ertapenem between March 2013 and December 2016...

Skin disease is one of the most common human diseases and affects between 30% and 70% of individuals, which requires a lot of attention to their treatments. The delivery of active pharmacological ingredients at the topical level is a challenge because of the difficulties in overcoming the mechanical barrier created by the skin and reaching greater depths, since delivery specificities are decisive for the degree of effectiveness. In this way, the nanoemulsions emerge as a potential system for the incorporation of active substances in the cells and for the controlled release of active principles...

BACKGROUND: Indian data on dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is not available. The aim of this study was to investigate the demographic and clinicopathological characteristics of patients with DH and to study its association with other autoimmune diseases. METHODS: All data were collected from case record forms of patients registered in immunobullous disease clinic of our institute. The diagnosis was based on characteristic clinical and immuno/histopathological features...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: The importance of socioeconomic factors and healthcare treatment and outcomes for lower income patients is tremendous, affecting not only those afflicted by poverty and decreased quality of care but also physicians, healthcare professionals, and society at large. METHODS: The National Cancer Database was used to identify 80,907 patients with stage 0-4 melanoma and analyze variables to track patterns in survival and outcome. RESULTS: This study demonstrates that disparities in income, insurance status, and education affects treatment and survival rates across all stages of melanoma and seeks to establish further understanding surrounding socioeconomic factors and quality of healthcare in America...
