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...

Plaque psoriasis affects approximately 2% to 3% of the global population, with psoriatic arthritis observed in approximately 20% to 30% of these individuals. Upon advances in research pathophysiology and treatment over the past decade, biologic therapies have been used more to treat moderate to severe psoriasis. In Canada, reimbursement bodies have defined prior authorization criteria to determine patient eligibility for funding of biologic treatments in moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. Generally, patients will have been treated with conventional therapies such as topical steroids, phototherapy, or systemic treatments such as methotrexate and cyclosporine before starting a biologic therapy...

William Kromka, Michael Cameron, Ramin Fathi
BACKGROUND: Full-thickness skin grafting is a well-established technique in the reconstruction of various tissue defects and wounds. However, lack of uniformity in the procedure of closing and securing the grafts has led to a wide range of different techniques. OBJECTIVE: This article reviews the use of tie-over bolster dressings compared to basting sutures for the fixation and postsurgical immobilization of full-thickness skin grafts (FTSGs), discusses details of each method, and proposes a practice guideline for the closure of FTSGs...

BACKGROUND: Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is a surgical modality that achieves high cure rates of nonmelanoma skin cancers but is dependent on accurate histologic examination of surgical margins. Therefore, quality assurance is essential to ongoing assessment of histological margins. OBJECTIVES: To prospectively determine the concordance rate between a Mohs surgeon (MS) and dermatopathologist (DP) with respect to tumour status (ie, present or absent) and tumour type...

BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis is a common inflammatory condition of the skin. Moderate to severe cases not responding to topical treatments and lifestyle changes may need second-line therapy. Methotrexate has been suggested as an effective treatment in such cases. OBJECTIVE: This study was done to determine the efficacy, adverse effects, and safety profile of methotrexate therapy in patients with atopic dermatitis. MATERIALS/METHODS: All adult patients with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis seen in the dermatology clinic at this tertiary hospital from January 2015 to December 2015 who were treated with methotrexate were reviewed in a retrospective chart review...

Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is a member of the non-Langerhans cell group of proliferative disorders of mononuclear phagocytes. JXG is a benign tumour of histiocytic cells. Classic JXG is divided into 2 main clinical subtypes: dome-shaped papules (<0.5 cm) and single/multiple nodules (<2.0 cm). A rare variant is referred to as giant; this term encompasses JXG lesions larger than 2.0 cm. In this article, we report a case of a congenital cutaneous giant JXG. In addition, we reviewed and analyzed all cases (n = 51) of giant JXG reported in the English literature...

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...

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...

OBJECTIVES: Although atopic dermatitis (AD) has significant impacts on quality of life, data from Canada on the subject are limited. This survey aims to assess the burden of moderate to severe AD on quality of life and disease management for pediatric patients and their caregivers in Canada. METHODS: The Eczema Society of Canada conducted an online national cross-sectional survey in English and French. We included children with self-reported moderate to severe AD...
