Conventional, full-body phototherapy equipment is costly and therefore patients are usually treated in dermatology centres. Such office-based therapy is often not feasible for those patients who live far away from a phototherapy centre due to lost time and wages, inability to travel because of extensive skin disease, or prohibitive travel costs. Home phototherapy has emerged as a modality that meets the needs of those patients. Our aim was to review available studies on UV sources, treatment protocols, efficacy, and safety of home phototherapy...

INTRODUCTION: Acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) is an aggressive variant of melanoma; the incidence, prevalence, and prognosis differ among populations. We analyzed clinicopathological features and survival in Hispanics, a population with high ALM prevalence. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From 1144 patients with melanoma, we analyzed 715 ALMs and 429 non-ALMs from the National Referral Cancer Centre and compared survival. RESULTS: Of the ALM group, 62...

Palmoplantar pustular psoriasis (PPPP) is a form of psoriasis that can be difficult to treat. We describe a case of PPPP in a patient who failed multiple therapies, including ustekinumab. The patient subsequently developed inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and restarting ustekinumab, with inflammatory bowel disease loading doses and optimization, resulted in complete resolution of her PPPP. This success occurred after she developed tachyphylaxis against the usual dosing of ustekinumab, demonstrating a recapture of the treatment response...

Dermatitis herpetiformis is a cutaneous manifestation of celiac disease that classically presents as a symmetric pruritic vesicular eruption on extensor surfaces. Typical locations include elbows, knees, and buttocks. Facial involvement has been reported rarely. Here, we report a case of a 44-year-old woman with dermatitis herpetiformis presenting as pruritic vesicles on the face that had previously been misdiagnosed as allergic contact dermatitis. Diagnosis was confirmed with direct immunofluorescence demonstrating granular IgA in the papillary dermis...

BACKGROUND: Over the past decade, new technologies, devices, and methods have been developed to assist in the diagnosis of cutaneous melanocytic lesions. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to evaluate the performance of an augmented intelligence system in the assessment of atypical pigmented lesions. METHODS: Nine atypical pigmented lesions on 8 patients were evaluated prior to surgical removal. No lesions had received previous treatment other than a diagnostic biopsy...

Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition affecting 2% to 3% of the population and is associated with several comorbidities, including cardiovascular disease, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, metabolic syndrome, mood disorder, psoriatic arthritis, and weight gain. Psoriasis is treated with a number of topical and systemic therapies, including biologic drugs that directly target proinflammatory cytokines. This cross-sectional retrospective study investigated comorbid conditions reported in the Newfoundland and Labrador psoriasis population, outcomes associated with therapeutic treatment, and use of health care resources...

The purpose of the present review was to describe evidence-based indications for Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) in patients with a diagnosis of skin cancer. Relevant studies were identified from a systematic MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews search of studies published from 1970 to 2017. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs), prospective and retrospective comparative studies with greater than 30 patients, and single-arm retrospective studies with multivariate analyses were included...

BACKGROUND: Lichenoid keratosis is a benign cutaneous lesion exhibiting many clinical faces and different dermoscopic features. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to determine the pattern of different clinical subtypes of lichenoid keratosis and to establish whether there is any correlation between the clinical variants of lichenoid keratosis and their dermoscopic appearance. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records and clinical database of patients who had received a histological diagnosis of lichenoid keratosis...

BACKGROUND: An eczema action plan (EAP) is an individualized tool to help caregivers and patients self-manage eczema. While novel illustrated EAPs have been developed and validated, there is limited literature examining the value of EAPs from patient and caregiver perspectives. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to test the usability, satisfaction, and usefulness of our validated EAP from the perspective of patients and caregivers. METHODS: Consecutive patients from the pediatric dermatology clinic of a tertiary children's hospital from July 2016 to July 2017 were offered enrolment in a prospective survey study; informed consent was obtained from participants...

Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is an autoimmune skin disease that manifests as scarring, dyspigmentation, erythema, and pain. Topical corticosteroids are a mainstay of treatment. Irritation, messiness, and tediousness may deter use. Thus, nonadherence, rather than nonresponse, can result in treatment failure. Prior adherence studies were limited to systemic lupus erythematosus. We performed a single-center, open-label pilot study to assess adherence to topical medication in patients with CLE. CLE adherence to topical medications is suboptimal and declines over time...
