Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors are becoming more common in the treatment of moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis. These medications have a low incidence of serious adverse events and are generally considered safe; however, they do make patients more susceptible to tuberculosis (TB) infection both through latent reactivation and primary infection. We describe a case of a patient who had an initial negative tuberculin skin test (TST), began TNF inhibitor therapy, and then 11 years later was diagnosed with active TB...

Psoriasis is a largely researched topic with abundant potential for publication in dermatologic journals. We used the Thomson Reuters' Web of Science citation database using the search term "psoriasis" in the titles of any literature published in 4 high-impact dermatology journals. We compiled a ranking of the top 25 cited first authors and top 25 cited authors overall on the subject of psoriasis between 2000-2012. We hope our analysis highlights the achievements of our colleagues and predecessors.

Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a disorder of follicular keratinization that is characterized by keratin plugs in the hair follicles with surrounding erythema. A 46-year-old man with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) was started on nilotinib, a second generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). Two months later the patient noticed red bumps on the skin and patchy hair loss on the arms, chest, shoulders, back, and legs. Cutaneous reactions to nilotinib are the most frequent non-hematologic adverse effects reported...

Diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers are chronic wounds frequently encountered by dermatologists. Choosing appropriate wound dressings can effectively promote wound healing and potentially reduce morbidity and financial burden experienced by patients. The objective of our systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate wound healing efficacies of synthetic active dressings in diabetic foot ulcer and venous leg ulcer management. For data collection, PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, CINAHL, and clinicaltrials...

Thrombocid® ointment (Lacer, Barcelona, Spain) is widely used in Spain and other countries for varicose veins and 22 hematomas. To our knowledge, there are no reported cases of allergic contact dermatitis following its use. Herein we present 23 two cases of allergic contact dermatitis to Thrombocid® ointment, owing to cetearyl alcohol.

Teledermatology (TD) is an emerging modality for providing remote dermatologic care with high diagnostic and management 25 concordance compared to face-to-face clinic dermatology. TD training among dermatology residency programs in the United 26 States has not been characterized. We disseminated a survey to all dermatology residents at ACGME accredited programs in the 27 United States to explore the prevalence and distribution of TD training and trainee perceptions of TD. One hundred out of a 28 potential 1170 responses (RR 8...

BACKGROUND: Botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) injections are an effective treatment for controlling hyperhidrosis at sites of amputation. Hyperesthesia associated with amputated limbs is a major barrier to performing this procedure under local anesthesia. OBJECTIVE: To present a novel method for improving local anesthesia with BTX-A injections. Methods & RESULTS: A 29-year-old military veteran with a below-the-knee amputation of his right leg was suffering from amputation site hyperhidrosis, which was impeding his ability to comfortably wear a prosthesis...

Eltrombopag is a thrombopoietin mimetic used for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia, hepatitis C patients undergoing antiviral therapy, and thrombocytopenia secondary to aplastic anemia that is refractory to immunosuppressive therapy. We report a case of a 25-year-old man with a history of aplastic anemia who presented with fever and a monomorphic papular rash. Subsequent labs, biopsy, and clinical course favored drug-induced cutaneous toxicity, with eltrombopag as the likely culprit...

Infantile myofibroma is a rare fibromatous tumor that is variable in presentation and is frequently mistaken for hemangioma or rhabdomyosarcoma. We describe a 14-month-old boy who presented with multiple, enlarging, firm lesions on the shoulder. Biopsy revealed a proliferation of small spindle cells with myxoid and hyalinized stroma infiltrating into the superficial adipose tissue. We provide a brief review of the clinical presentation, histopathologic features, management, and recent advances in our understanding of this rare condition...

La criptococosis cutánea es una micosis propia de pacientes inmunodeprimidos, sobre todo aquellos con infección por el virusde la inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH). Sin embargo, existen casos infrecuentes de criptococosis cutánea en pacientes inmunocompetentes, que suelen simular otras dermatosis, lo que retrasa su diagnóstico y tratamiento. Presentamos el caso de un varón pluripatológico de 79 años, con úlceras dolorosas en dorso de mano derecha que no respondían a tratamientos tópicos. A través del estudio histopatológico y micológico se alcanzó el diagnóstico de criptococosis cutánea primaria, lográndose la remisión de las lesiones tras 6 meses de tratamiento con fluconazol...

Keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) syndrome is a rare genodermatosis causing ichthyosis-like skin lesions, keratitis, and deafness. Herein, we report a patient with this rare syndrome in association with pityriasis lichenoides chronica, which was succesfully treated with narrow-band ultraviolet B phototherapy despite our concerns regarding the increased risk of squamous cell carcinoma, hyperpyrexia, and keratitis.

The experimental advantages of zebrafish make this model system highly amenable to the field of dermatology. Zebrafish skin development is similar to humans and its genome is ~70% orthologous to the human genome. Its external developmental process allows for genetic manipulation and analysis of embryogenesis within a short time frame with all important internal organs and skin compartments formed within 6 days. Zebrafish models of cutaneous human diseases offer insight into pathogenesis and a unique platform for testing of potential therapies...

Uremic pruritus (UP) is a common condition among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on hemodialysis (HD). We report 19 a case of severe UP recalcitrant to conventional therapy including topical corticosteroids, anti-histamines, and phototherapy, 20 which was treated successfully with the Goeckerman regimen consisting of topical coal tar, topical corticosteroids, and broadband 21 UVB (BB-UVB). Little is known about the pathophysiology of UP, and there is currently no consensus or evidence-based 22 treatments for UP...

Kaposi disease (KD) is an angiogenetic tumor process, characterized by its various clinical aspects. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial and it was attributed to HHV-8 infection. We report an original case of disseminated KD revealed by solitary lesion of external ear in a patient treated by corticosteroids for bullous pemphigoid.

A boy presented initially to a Rheumatology clinic with a three year history of asymptomatic swelling of the third to fourth proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints bilaterally. A presumptive diagnosis of seronegative arthritis was made. Sulfasalazine was commenced without improvement and resulted in mood disturbance. Blood tests including ESR, lupus anticoagulant, rheumatoid factor and CCP antibodies were unremarkable. Hand radiographs were normal. MRI showed oedema within soft tissues around PIP joints. His care was transferred to the Rheumatology unit in our hospital and the rheumatological diagnosis was revised; sulfasalazine was stopped and skin biopsy organised...

Primary superficial leiomyosarcoma is a very uncommon malignant tumor which occurs most commonly the lower limbs. We report one case of unusual topography of this tumor. An 81-year-old female patient presented with a 2 year history of a periungual tumor of the left index finger. The histopathological and immunohistochemical examination of a biopsy specimen was compatible with the diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma. There was no evidence of metastatic disease. An amputation of the index was performed.
