Alexandre Laroche, Evelyn Alarcon Chinchilla, Emilie Bourgeault, Marc-André Doré
BACKGROUND: We report a case of nivolumab-related sarcoidosis-like syndrome that initially presented with erythema nodosum. Sarcoidosis development has been described in single and combination immunotherapy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 68-year-old white woman with metastatic ocular amelanotic choroid melanoma was treated with nivolumab. The patient developed histologically confirmed erythema nodosum lesions and pulmonary granuloma sarcoidosis. Nivolumab was discontinued and the patient started ipilimumab therapy...

BACKGROUND: Cutaneous infections caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) occur infrequently. Nonetheless, the incidence of NTM infections is reported to be increasing. In Canada, cutaneous NTM infections have not been well described. OBJECTIVES: A database review from 2006 to 2016 was done to assess species frequency, incidence, and trends of the most common cutaneous NTMs in the province of Alberta, Canada. We also reviewed major diagnostic and epidemiologic aspects of NTM cutaneous infections with a focus on Mycobacterium marinum...

BACKGROUND: Patients with psoriasis of all severities employ topical treatment, either alone or in combination. Promoting Patient Engagement at the Leading Edge of Topical Psoriasis Treatment (PROPEL) surveyed Canadian dermatologists and their patients about their attitudes toward topical care. OBJECTIVES: To identify gaps between patients and dermatologists regarding the burden of psoriasis, the burden of treatment, and priorities for topical care to Canadian patients with psoriasis...

Joel C Bergman, Thai Yen Ly, Margaret-Mary Keating, Peter R Hull
BACKGROUND: Dasatinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor indicated for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Skin rashes are common, occurring in about a quarter of patients treated, and are generally mild. The commonest rash is a keratosis pilaris-like eruption. A neutrophilic dermatosis has rarely been reported. OBJECTIVE: We report a patient whose CML was successfully treated with dasatinib and who several years later developed episodes of a neutrophilic dermatosis recurring at the same sites...

Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is an uncommon papulosquamous dermatosis characterized by follicular, erythematous, hyperkeratotic papules coalescing to salmon-coloured plaques with islands of sparing. The disease tends to be self-limited and resolves spontaneously after a few years. In some cases, the disease is persistent. However, recurrence of this disease has rarely been described. An 8-year-old male was diagnosed with type III (classic juvenile) PRP. He was treated with acitretin, and his skin was clear after 6 months...

BACKGROUND: Melanoma is a serious, potentially lethal disease. It is one of very few common cancers whose incidence is rising in North America. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to examine trends in melanoma incidence in Ontario, Canada's most populous province, over the past 20 years. METHODS: Using data from the Ontario Cancer Registry (OCR), this retrospective cohort examined all incident cases of melanoma in Ontario from 1990 to 2012...

Generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) is a rare but serious and difficult to treat cutaneous disease, with high morbidity and mortality rates. Despite the numerous treatment regimens available, the overall quality of evidence-based research is limited with a lack of an algorithmic approach available. In this review, we aim to evaluate the current level of evidence regarding the efficacy and safety/tolerability of systemic monotherapies available in the treatment of GPP. A comprehensive MEDLINE, EMBASE, and PubMed search of clinical studies examining systemic monotherapy treatment options for GPP was conducted...

#8
Jessica G Fudge, Richard I Crawford
BACKGROUND: Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the most common subepidermal autoimmune disorder characterized by tense bullae. It is associated with circulating autoantibodies against BP antigen-1 and BP antigen-2. Diagnosis is based upon clinical, histopathologic, and immunopathologic examination. Direct immunofluorescence (DIF) of perilesional skin highlights C3 with or without IgG in a linear pattern along the basement membrane. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that repeat biopsies may be required for a definitive DIF diagnosis of BP, as initial DIF evaluation may result in a false-negative result...

Ulcerated infantile hemangiomas may present a therapeutic challenge, especially if there is concurrent hemorrhage or infection. The aim of this study was to systematically review the published evidence on the treatment of ulcerated hemangiomas, focusing on wound healing as the outcome of interest. We searched MEDLINE, Embase, SCOPUS, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), and Web of Science from inception to July 2016. Seventy-seven studies met our inclusion criteria. One study was a randomized controlled trial, 30 were observational studies, and 46 were case reports or case series...

Cutaneous reactions to tattoos can be attributed either to trauma or to the exogenous pigment introduced into the skin. Red pigment is associated with a high sensitizing potential and is the most frequently implicated pigment inducing various types of histological reactions. Herein, we describe a patient with red tattoo pigment-induced granulomatous dermatitis that histologically revealed a very rare granuloma annulare-like reaction.

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic debilitating disease with long-lasting comorbidities that impose direct and indirect costs on the health care system. However, limited studies have estimated the burden of this disease in Canada, and no population-based studies have previously addressed this condition. OBJECTIVES: This work describes the characteristics of a population-based HS cohort to address the existing knowledge gap on the burden of HS for the Canadian health care system...

INTRODUCTION: The diagnosis of exaggerated bite reactions is based on the clinical and pathological characteristics of the lesions. These reactions can be an indicator of impending immune suppression. METHODS: The authors report the case of a 35-year-old pregnant woman who presented with a pruriginous vesicular and pustular eruption over her thighs and buttocks. The clinical and pathological findings were compatible with an exaggerated bite reaction. The patient did not report any severe or exaggerated reaction to insect bites in the past...

BACKGROUND: Diphenylcyclopropenone (DPCP) immunotherapy for viral warts has been used for many years, but no studies have analyzed the treatment effects of DPCP alone, without the use of conventional therapy before immunotherapy. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated clinical efficacy of DPCP monotherapy compared to cryotherapy and pulsed dye laser (PDL) therapy. We also assessed the impact of initial sensitization on clinical response. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 250 patients with multiple viral warts between January 2008 and December 2015...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Elephantiasis nostras verrucosa (ENV) is a disfiguring skin condition that is difficult to treat. Existing treatment modalities serve to improve cosmesis or treat symptoms. Herein, we report a case of ENV with lymphocutaneous fistula successfully treated with ablative carbon dioxide laser. STUDY DESIGN/PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 57-year-old woman with biopsy-proven ENV with lymphocutaneous fistula was treated with ablative carbon dioxide laser to the symptomatic area of her right thigh in 3 treatment sessions over 6 months...

BACKGROUND: Changes in the practice patterns and demographics of Canadian dermatologists remain largely unknown and would be helpful in assessing the future practice of dermatology across Canada. OBJECTIVE: To assess changes in the population of Ontario dermatologists over time and the factors that influence their practice patterns, caseload, and the procedures they perform. METHODS: A retrospective population-based analysis was performed using comprehensive administrative data on Ontario Health Insurance Plan insured dermatology visits and procedures from April 1, 2009, to March 31, 2015...

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem inflammatory condition of unknown etiology. Variability in the cutaneous features of sarcoidosis is profound, and its protean manifestations affirm the condition's designation as one of dermatology's "great mimics." Cutaneous phenotypes of sarcoidosis include but are by no means limited to ichthyosiform, alopecic, erythrodermic, angiolupoid, and verrucous variants. Verrucous sarcoidosis is an exceedingly rare manifestation, and previous reports of this phenotype are limited to 15 cases...
