In this case report, the authors describe a first-time trial of a variation of extracorporeal shockwave therapy in a patient with disseminated granuloma annulare. Radial pulse therapy was administered in an outpatient clinic of a university hospital to a 72-year-old woman with a 14-year history of disseminated granuloma annulare. The authors describe changes in clinical appearance and results of histological evaluation, reporting observable positive changes in all four treated plaques. The authors conclude that radial pulse therapy was well-tolerated and seemed to influence the course of disseminated granuloma annulare plaques positively...

REVIEW
Joseph M Dyer, Richard A Miller
Thin skin and the appearance of bruises, seemingly unprovoked, are frequent complaints of elderly patients. Chronic cutaneous insufficiencies such as these are termed dermatoporosis. Although it is seldom the primary reason for consultation, dermatoporosis is associated with bleeding and healing complications and presents an opportunity for patient education and prevention. In this review, the authors explore the risk factors, pathogenetic mechanisms, clinical expression, and evidence-based therapies reported for chronic skin fragility due to aging...

Trousseau syndrome is a rare phenomenon in cancer patients characterized by superficial migratory thrombophlebitis. In this brief report, the authors describe three recent case presentations of patients without a prior history of cancer who were treated for cellulitis prior to be admitted to the hospital. All three patients were found to have "negative" testing on venous duplex scanning. Communication with the technicians and additional clinical and laboratory evaluations confirmed Trousseau syndrome as well as an underlying hematologic cancer in each patient...

Venous leg ulcers can lead to debilitation and a decrease in quality of life and can require costly treatments. Compression therapy remains the foundation of conservative treatment. However, some ulcers become indolent, chronic, and unresolved for years, even with adherence to standard of care. Here, the authors describe the case of a 56-year-old male patient with a recalcitrant recurrent distal leg ulcer. The ulcer was treated initially with debridement and compression therapy, respectively, and then subsequently with hyaluronic acid sodium salt 0...

Psoriasis is one of the most common chronic inflammatory skin diseases, characterized by erythema and the formation of plaques. The diagnosis of psoriasis is based on clinical examination, and its severity is assessed by the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index. Histologic examination is still the standard method for the final diagnosis. Sonography has proved to be a suitable noninvasive imaging method for studying soft tissue in dermatologic diseases such as psoriasis. This study evaluated the effect of Doppler sonography in the assessment of psoriasis in comparison with histopathology...
