Mathew N Nicholas, Stephanie K Li, Marlene Dytoc
Oral glucocorticoids are commonly used across every field of medicine; however, discontinuing them in patients can be challenging. The risk of acute adrenal crises secondary to glucocorticoid withdrawal can be fatal and arises from chronic suppression of the adrenal glands. Identifying risk factors for adrenal suppression in dermatological patients, such as doses greater than 5 to 7.5 mg of prednisone equivalent, duration of glucocorticoid use greater than 3 weeks, certain medications, and comorbidities, can help risk-stratify patients...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with adverse physical and psychosocial impacts. The development of an HS quality-of-life measure, HS-QoL, has been recently described. OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to validate the HS-QoL. METHOD: Fifty-five patients with HS from 4 dermatology clinics completed the 30-minute online survey. Item reduction, reliability (internal consistency), and correlation analysis (to assess convergent validity) were conducted...

BACKGROUND: Onychomycosis can be investigated by sampling. Information gleaned includes nail bed involvement, nail plate penetration, fungal viability, and species identification. Testing samples can confirm a diagnosis. While diagnostic testing is considered useful in directing therapy, a substantial number of clinicians do not confirm diagnosis prior to treatment. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to quantify the benefit of confirmatory testing prior to treating toenail onychomycosis...

BACKGROUND: Acitretin has been used for the treatment of severe psoriasis for over 20 years. OBJECTIVE: The current project was conceived to optimise patient care by recognising the role acitretin can play in the treatment of patients with psoriasis and those with other disorders of keratinisation. METHODS: A literature review was conducted to explore the role of acitretin and to assess its value for dermatologic disorders other than severe psoriasis...

Subcutaneous fat necrosis of the newborn (SFNN) is a rare disorder characterised by indurated plaques or nodules with or without erythema, typically distributed over the cheeks, extremities, posterior trunk, buttocks, and thighs, and appears during the first 2 weeks of life. It is commonly associated with perinatal asphyxia and, while usually self-limited, can lead to severe hypercalcemia. There is no known familial association. The present article describes a neonate with extensive disease, counterintuitive hypocalcemia, and a family history of SFNN and reviews the existing literature on SFNN...

Bahman Sotoodian, Muhammad N Mahmood, Thomas G Salopek
INTRODUCTION: Porokeratosis is a benign hyperkeratotic skin tumour due to a clonal proliferation of keratinocytes and is characterised by a telltale annular threadlike configuration along the border of a skin-colored to erythematous papule that can expand centrifugally. CASE PRESENTATION: We are presenting a clinical and dermoscopic case of pigmented disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP) limited to the upper trunk of a white man with sun-damaged skin...

Mikhin George Thomas, Ambooken Betsy
Lichen planus (LP) is a chronic inflammatory disorder that most commonly affects middle-aged individuals. LP involves the skin and/or mucous membranes, including oral, vulvovaginal, esophageal, laryngeal, and conjunctival mucosa. Linear LP, a rare distinct variant of LP, is characterised by pruritic eruption of lichenoid and violaceous papules in a linear distribution. We report an unusual presentation of linear LP in a 14-year-old child that extended from the left anterior nares to upper lip and into the oral mucosa up to the upper gum margin...

Matthew Sandre, Sandra Skotnicki-Grant
Allergic contact dermatitis to benzoyl peroxide can occur in up to 6.5% of those with a history of exposure to this potential allergen. Conversely, irritant contact dermatitis is very common with benzoyl peroxide and can be differentiated from allergic contact dermatitis based on the patient's history and clinical signs and symptoms. We present a case of a paediatric patient with patch test-confirmed severe allergic contact dermatitis to benzoyl peroxide requiring hospitalisation and systemic treatment.

BACKGROUND: Congenital syphilis (CS) is an infectious disease resulting from transplacental transmission of Treponema pallidum spirochetes from an infected mother to fetus during pregnancy. While uncommon, CS has shown an increased incidence in Canada and the United States since 2001 and 2012, respectively. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a 5-week-old female infant with blistering rash on the palms and soles. The infant displayed decreased movement of the left upper extremity, clinically consistent with Parrot pseudoparalysis...

BACKGROUND: Microsporum gypseum is a geophilic dermatophyte that colonises keratinous substances in the soil. Fur-bearing animals carry this dermatophyte but are rarely infected. Human infection can be acquired from the soil, carrier or infected animals, and rarely other humans. M gypseum is an uncommon cause of cutaneous infection in humans and typically manifests as tinea corporis, tinea barbae, and tinea capitis. Onychomycosis is rarely caused by M gypseum. CASE SUMMARY: We present a case of a 32-year-old white man who presented with a red scaly rash and nail dystrophy after adopting a pet rat 10 years prior to presentation...

Angela Hu, Ron Vender
BACKGROUND: Canadian dermatology curriculum was reviewed in 1983, 1987, 1996, and 2008. All these surveys highlighted the disproportionately low level of dermatology teaching in relation to the significant amount of skin disease seen by physicians. Since the official adoption and dissemination of the Canadian Professors of Dermatology (CPD) core curriculum and competencies, there has been no assessment of how these changes have influenced dermatology curriculum. OBJECTIVE: This survey gathered information on the current status of undergraduate dermatology education across Canadian medical schools...

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis treatment involves topical medications, oral medications, phototherapy, and/or biologics. The treatments used depend on a myriad of factors that change over time. OBJECTIVE: To characterise the frequency of and reasons for treatment changes in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis. METHODS: A chart review examined treatment changes at 902 visits by 116 patients seen between January 1, 2010, and June 30, 2015, for moderate to severe psoriasis and the physicians' justifications for those changes...
