BACKGROUND: Discontinuation of aspirin therapy before cutaneous surgery may cause serious complications. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the bleeding risk of split-thickness skin transplantation repair to chronic wounds in patients on aspirin therapy. METHODS: A total of 97 patients who underwent split-thickness skin transplantation surgery of chronic wounds during a 2-year period were enrolled. They were categorized on the basis of aspirin therapies...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-associated Kaposi sarcoma (KS) among the pediatric population is a rare entity in North America and Europe, and its cutaneous manifestations are not well defined in the literature. The investigators report the case of a boy with an AIDS-associated KS presenting as an infiltrated hyperkeratotic plaque of the plantar arch. METHODS AND RESULTS: An 11-year-old African boy with congenital human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) had a skin biopsy of the plantar lesion that was consistent with a KS...

Venus Valbuena, Dalal Assaad, Jensen Yeung
BACKGROUND: Pseudoxanthoma elasticum-like papillary dermal elastolysis (PXE-PDE), a rare acquired elastolytic disorder, occurs in postmenopausal, elderly women and is characterized by soft, white-yellow papules that localize on the neck and supraclavicular regions and often coalesce into cobblestone plaques. It has no systemic involvement and is histologically distinct from the clinically similar inherited pseudoxanthoma elasticum. CASE SUMMARY: A 64-year-old Caucasian woman presented with a 2-year history of multiple, asymptomatic soft yellow 1- to 2-mm papules on her neck, which were increasing in number...

Qi Tan, Huan Yang, En-Mei Liu, Hua Wang
BACKGROUND: Although CD4(+) T cells are known to contribute to the pathology of atopic dermatitis (AD), the role of T helper 17 cells and interleukin (IL)-17 in skin inflammation remains poorly understood. The aim of this study was to characterize the role of IL-17 in AD-related inflammation and immunopathology. METHODS: Blood samples were collected from 87 children with AD and 60 healthy control subjects. In addition, 10 skin biopsies from each group were collected...

BACKGROUND: Different methods can be used in the surgical treatment of patients with rhinophyma. There are limited numbers of reports on high-frequency electrosurgery treatment. In addition, an efficient scoring system is required to evaluate severity of the disease in clinical progress and recurrence after treatment. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated patients with rhinophyma who were treated with high-frequency electrosurgery and discussed the methods used to assess severity of the disease...

BACKGROUND: Organ transplant recipients (OTRs) are at an increased risk of developing a de novo malignant neoplasm compared to the general population. The primary contributor to skin cancer in all patients is sun exposure. OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aim to ascertain both OTR skin cancer awareness and photoprotection practices. METHODS: A questionnaire-based study of Saskatchewan transplant recipients. RESULTS: Nearly all respondents were aware that sun exposure is the best-known cause of skin cancer and that as an OTR, they are at increased risk of skin cancer (99...

BACKGROUND: Sweet syndrome (SS) is an infrequent skin disease characterised by sudden onset of fever, leukocytosis, neutrophilia, and tender erythematous plaques infiltrated by neutrophils. Multiple conditions have been associated with this syndrome. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical, epidemiological, laboratory, and histopathological findings and associations of patients with SS. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of 83 patients with SS followed between January 1, 2006, and January 31, 2015...

Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is the most frequent form of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis. We present a case of giant congenital JXG in a 7-week-old boy, who had a firm and incompressible lesion, measuring 3 × 4 cm in diameter, on his right flank. The clinical appearance of the lesion and the ultrasound results suggested a vascular tumor, such as a hemangioma. Histology confirmed a JXG, although there was an absence of Touton cells, which are usually pathognomonic of JXG. In light of these findings, it would be important to include JXG in the differential diagnosis of congenital tumours, particularly vascular lesions...

INTRODUCTION: First Nations people have a long history of working with medicinal plants used to treat skin diseases. The purpose was to assess the dermatologic therapeutic potential of western red cedar, white spruce, birch, balsam poplar, and black spruce. METHODS: Based on expert recommendations, 5 trees were selected that were used in First Nations medicine for cutaneous healing and have potential and/or current application to dermatology today. We searched several databases up to June 12, 2014...

BACKGROUND: Contact allergy to methylisothiazolinone (MI) or to the combination of methylchloroisothiazolinone and MI (MCI/MI) is an important and increasing cause of allergic contact dermatitis, with prevalence rates higher than 10% in some centers. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this retrospective chart review is to provide a western Canadian perspective on whether the positive patch testing rate to MCI/MI or MI increased during the testing period of 2008 to 2015 and whether the addition of MI at 2000 ppm resulted in increased detection...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common disease associated with an underappreciated increased risk of depression and suicidality. Current literature investigates associated risk factors, including severity of disease, age, sex, and atopic comorbidities, which may help identify patients with AD at high risk for depression or suicidality. Increasing severity of AD and female sex are associated with an increased risk for both depression and suicidality, while increasing age is associated with an increased risk for depression only...

Blastomycosis is an uncommon infection caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis. While management is fairly straightforward, diagnosis can be quite challenging. We describe a case of a healthy 37-year-old man who presented with progressive mucocutaneous lesions, without lung or other systemic involvement. Treatment with itraconazole resulted in complete resolution of signs and symptoms. This case showcases the variety of blastomycosis clinical presentation and the importance of blastomycosis in the differential diagnosis of verrucous and papillomatous mucocutaneous lesions...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the current knowledge children possess on melanoma and sun-protective behaviour. METHODS: A one-page survey was administered to students in grades 5, 7, and 9. RESULTS: Three hundred ninety-two students from 11 schools in Edmonton were surveyed. Seventy-one percent of students knew that sun exposure can cause skin cancers. Sixty-nine percent were taught by their parents about sun protection, but only 44% of students received similar instructions from teachers...

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...
