Pediculosis pubis is caused by Phthirus pubis. The disease can be sexually transmitted. Patients main complain is of itch in the pubic area. The parasite can be spotted with the naked eye and blue macules can be observed in the pubic area. First line therapy consists of permethrin or pyrethrins with piperonyl butoxide. Second line therapy contains phenothrin, malathion and oral ivermectin. Partner management needs a look-back period of time of 3 months. Pubic lice incidence is increased in populations groups living in crowded spaces with scarce sanitary conditions as in time of war or disaster...

Erythema multiforme (EM) is a skin condition for which main causes are infectious factors (Herpes simplex virus, Mycoplasma pneumoniae). Anti-plakin auto-antibodies are found in some patients (1) . EM must be distinguished from Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), which are drug-induced in most cases (2-5) . This article is protected by copyright.

A 63-year-old man presented in the emergency department with general malaise, asthenia, an erythematosquamous rash on face and forearms and severe hyponatremia. The rash appeared after working in his garden on a sunny afternoon without sunscreen protection (Figure 1A/B/C). Furosemide was stopped and once daily mometason furoate cream was prescribed. Hyponatremia was corrected by IV hypertonic fluids. Five days later, the rash spread to the upper legs, chest and back. Histopathology revealed damage of the basal layer with necrotic keratinocytes and dermal perivascular and adnexal infiltrates (Figure 2)...

BACKGROUND: Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the skin is a highly prevalent neoplasm. The management and the prognosis of this tumor is dependent on its invasiveness and its grade of differentiation. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether specific dermoscopic and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) criteria can predict the diagnosis of invasive SCC vs in situ SCC and poorly differentiated compared with well- and moderately differentiated SCC. METHODS: Dermoscopic and RCM images of SCCs were retrospectively evaluated for the presence of predefined criteria...

In East Asia, herbs are not only used by traditional medical practitioners but also commonly eaten by public. Compositae and Rhus are well-known antigens that can cause allergic contact dermatitis, but the other herbs are not well studied for antigenicity. Hosta plantaginea (also known as 'August lily' or 'Plantain lily') is originated from China and usually grown for ornamental purposes (Fig. 1a~c). In traditional medicine, flowers are used as oral medicines for sore throat or dysuria and sometimes topically applied for burn...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is an inflammatory skin disease causing painful inflammation and suppuration. It may occur in rare syndromes: follicular occlusion, Bazex-Dupré-Christol, Down's, KID, PAPASH, PASS, PASH, and SAPHO syndromes, as well as Dowling-Degos disease. An overview of syndromic HS may inform the search for etiological factors in HS. METHODS: Pubmed, Ovid, and Web of Science were systematically searched using "(hidradenitis OR acne invers*) AND (syndrome OR KID OR PASS OR PAPA OR PASH OR SAPHO OR bazex-dupre OR "dowling degos" OR triad OR tetrad)" and Cochrane Library using "hidradenitis OR acne invers*"...

There is an incomplete understanding in the pathogenesis of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) and cancer broadly. It is essential to discover new pathways of normal cell-cycle regulation and oncogenesis. We identified that the loss of inositol polyphosphate-5-phosphatase (INPP5A) may play a role in the development and progression of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).(1) Loss of INPP5A has been previously linked to cancer development and progression.(2) This article is protected by copyright...

Secukinumab is an interleukin (IL)-17A antagonist approved in 2015 by health agencies around the world for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adult patients. Current knowledge of the efficacy and safety of secukinumab is limited to data from phase III randomized controlled trials (RCT). Despite the acceptable safety profile and promising efficacy results, there remains to be a lack of understanding of treatment outcomes in real-world clinical practice.

Plasma is a partially or fully ionized gaseous state of matter containing chemically active species, such as ions, electrons, photons, reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, and UV light. Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) can be applied onto vital, heat-sensitive surfaces and is currently used in surgery, endoscopic procedures, and wound care with proven antimicrobial efficacy and the ability to deactivate pathogens, stop bleeding and stimulate cell proliferation (1)(2) . Recent pre-clinical observations suggested an anti-tumoral potential, for example in melanoma, glioma and colorectal carcinoma cells (3)(4) ...

Treatment options for metastatic melanoma have changed substantially in recent years. Targeting immune checkpoints has improved prognosis of melanoma patients. For melanomas harboring BRAF mutations, inhibition of the mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway is a promising therapeutic option. Combined BRAF and MEK inhibition improves progression-free and overall survival. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Y Baba, T Funakoshi, M Mori, K Emoto, Y Masugi, S Ekmekcioglu, M Amagai, K Tanese
BACKGROUND: Accumulating evidence suggests that the lipid lytic enzyme monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) promotes tumour invasion and metastasis through up-regulation of pro-tumourigenic signalling lipids in several tumour cell lines. However, the expression status of MAGL in clinical melanoma tissues and its clinico-pathological significance remain unclear. OBJECTIVE: To correlate the tumour expression status of MAGL with the clinico-pathological information of patients with malignant melanoma...

BACKGROUND: Early paediatric dermatosurgery reveals excellent cosmetic results due to high skin-elasticity and pronounced capacity to recover from trauma. Furthermore, the size of skin lesions increases during life proportionally to skin growth and therefore early removal is of major importance. Selected local anaesthetics like prilocaine can cause methaemoglobinemia. However, in contrast to general anaesthesia many other local anaesthetics do not bare any major risks for infants. OBJECTIVE: In this retrospective study, we analysed infants aged less than 7 months receiving tumescent local anaesthesia (TLA) followed by dermatosurgery at our department between 2005 and 2015...

Psoriasis can be a socially isolating disease due to debilitating physical symptoms and the stigma patients feel because of the appearance of their skin. Mental health comorbidities such as anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation and behavior (SIB) are prevalent in patients with psoriasis. Patients with mild psoriasis can experience psychiatric comorbidities; however, disorders such as depression and SIB are more common in patients with severe psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. Psychiatric disorders can both result from and contribute to progression of psoriasis, suggesting that psoriasis and psychiatric conditions, such as depression, may have overlapping biological mechanisms...
