#1
REVIEW
Erin Maguire, Alison Spurr
Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) poses a major risk for outdoor workers, putting them at greater risk for skin cancer. In the general population, the incidence of both melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers is increasing. It is estimated that 90% of skin cancers in Canada are directly attributable to UVR exposure, making this cancer largely preventable with the appropriate precautions. A scoping review was conducted on the barriers and facilitators to UVR safety in outdoor workers to elucidate why these precautions are not in use currently...

Derek To, Jillian Macdonald
BACKGROUND: Tumour size is a crucial factor used to plan Mohs procedures. Larger tumours require more time and stages of excision, and they need to be triaged as a higher priority. Therefore, the accuracy in measurement of tumour size is critical. OBJECTIVE: To investigate if there is a significant difference in accuracy of tumour measurements in referrals between dermatologists and nondermatologists. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Performed a retrospective study of 180 referrals from dermatologists and 47 referrals from nondermatologists to The Ottawa Hospital Riverside Mohs Surgery Clinic...

Laura E Pickett, Jillian Macdonald
BACKGROUND: Lidocaine-allergic patients pose a challenge for cutaneous surgical procedures. We present a case of a successful wide local excision with flap closures on the face using topical tetracaine followed by infiltration with 1% diphenhydramine. CASE SUMMARY: An 84-year-old woman, with a lidocaine intolerance, presented to the Mohs surgery clinic for wide local excision of a nodular basal cell carcinoma on her right medial cheek. Successful anaesthesia was achieved using topical 4% tetracaine followed by intradermal and subcutaneous injection of 1% diphenhydramine...

REVIEW
Jason K Rivers, Brianne J Vestvik, Jonathan Berkowitz
BACKGROUND: Onychomycosis is a cosmetic and, at times, medical concern; therefore, effective and safe alternatives to treatment are needed. OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of a 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser for the treatment of onychomycosis in a real-world setting. METHODS: A single-centre retrospective chart review was conducted between 2012 and 2013. One hundred consecutive patients with a culture- and/or potassium hydroxide-confirmed diagnosis of onychomycosis were treated at least twice...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic skin disorder with adverse impacts on both physical and psychosocial well-being. There is presently no validated HS-specific quality-of-life (QoL) measure. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to develop a QoL instrument for HS (HS-QoL) in accordance with recommended standards. METHODS: Patient interviews (concept elicitation) and expert input were used to develop the conceptual framework for outcomes perceived important to patients with HS...

Shayne D Reitmeier, Brent Schacter, Marni C Wiseman
BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common nonmelanoma skin cancer. There is a clear association between BCC development and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP) is an inherited porphyria disorder that is a result of protoporphyrin accumulation, typically manifesting with phototoxicity. CASE SUMMARY: We report a case of a 24 year-old man with both EPP and BCC diagnoses. At the age of 4 years, the patient was diagnosed with EPP...

BACKGROUND: Friction blisters on the hand are challenging to treat as conventional dressings are prone to saturation, contamination, and loosening with active hand use and other mechanical stresses. Alternative methods and materials for dressing hand blisters warrant exploration. CASE SUMMARY: A 48-year-old male surgeon presented with friction blisters over his bilateral thumbs. The patient complained of significant difficulty in keeping his dressings clean and dry, significant pain with hand hygiene, and functional limitations at work...

REVIEW
Aditya K Gupta, Kelly A Foley, Sarah G Versteeg
Many studies that have been recently published investigate the efficacy of laser treatment for onychomycosis. These studies support the current US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of lasers for the 'temporary increase in clear nail'. Clear nail growth is an important treatment goal for patients; however, many do not realise that laser treatment is not a cure for onychomycosis. The current article briefly reviews why lasers may be theoretically effective in treating onychomycosis and critically reviews published laser studies for onychomycosis in light of the standards employed in drug trials...

REVIEW
Pedro Herranz, Colin Morton, Thomas Dirschka, Rosario Rodríguez Azeredo, Rodrigo Roldán-Marín
BACKGROUND: Actinic keratosis (AK) lesions have the potential to develop into invasive squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs), and approaches to treatment are evolving to try to reduce the burden of SCC. OBJECTIVE: To present the published clinical research surrounding the use of 0.5% 5-fluorouracil with 10% salicylic acid (low-dose 5-FU/SA) for the treatment of hyperkeratotic AKs. METHOD: A review of published clinical evidence for low-dose 5-FU/SA for the treatment of AKs...

BACKGROUND: Diffuse cutaneous bullous mastocytosis is the most rare subtype of cutaneous mastocytosis, characterized by generalized skin infiltration with mast cells and blistering. OBJECTIVE: To increase the awareness of the natural history and potential adverse complications of this rare cutaneous condition. METHOD AND RESULTS: We report a case of a male diagnosed on day 7 of life with follow-up of his progression over 6 years. When he was 2...

BACKGROUND: The Norwood classification system is commonly used to ascertain the progress of androgenetic alopecia (AGA) with a robust and quick assessment, but it lacks precision in the frontal region, notably during the onset of male pattern hair loss. OBJECTIVE: Due to the ongoing technical improvement in restorative hair transplantation practices, we aim to develop simple quantitative methods for measuring the progression of AGA. METHODS: Here, we used a quantitative system to evaluate the progress of AGA of the frontal receding hairline in a case study with 41 patients...

IMPORTANCE: Scurvy remains prevalent in certain populations, including addicts, people of low socioeconomic status, and the severely malnourished. It classically presents as follicular hyperkeratosis and perifollicular hemorrhage of the lower extremities, as well as bleeding in other areas such as the gingiva and joints. This case presentation and literature review highlights the common pathophysiological findings associated with scurvy and current methods of diagnosis and treatment. OBSERVATION: The patient described in this case presented with sudden oligoarthritis and purpura of the lower extremities...
