Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is uncommon and has an insidious onset with slow evolution and a paucibacillary nature. Here, we present a case of disseminated tuberculosis in an adult immunocompetent man presenting with morphologically different types of cutaneous lesions (i.e., multiple subcutaneous abcesses and multiple noduloulcerative lesions with discharging sinuses with seropurulent fluid). Extensive screening in the form of routine blood investigations, serologies, skin biopsy, Montoux test, sputum examination, chest and skull roentgenogram, noncontrast computed tomography chest and abdomen, contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the skull, and magnetic resonance imaging of lumbosacral spine with screening of the whole spine revealed extensive involvement of the skin, subcutaneous tissue, lungs, lymph nodes, skull bone, mandible, ribs, scapula, pelvis and Pott's spine, and thyroid...

The majority of available data on the prevalence, grading, and management of acne vulgaris (AV) are based on studies that evaluate facial AV. Data are limited in all of these areas with truncal AV. This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of topical management of truncal AV involving the chest and back in a three-center, open-label, 16-week study. Enrolled subjects (N=20), 12 years of age or older, applied dapsone 7.5% gel once daily as monotherapy. The primary endpoint of the study was the percent of subjects who achieved a two-grade improvement and a rating of clear or almost clear based on the Investigator Global Assessment scale...

Background: Severe scarring caused by acne is associated with substantial physical and psychological distress, both in adolescents and adults. There are two basic types of scars: atrophic (depressed) and raised (hypertrophic). Microneedle fractional radiofrequency (MFRF) is a new technology that uses extra sharp microneedles to heat the depths of the dermis, which promotes dermal collagen remodeling. In this study, we used electronically controlled non-insulated microneedle radiofrequency treatment to treat atrophic acne scars, improve skin texture, and reduce pore size...

Niamh Corduff
Soft tissue filler augmentation for beautification is a common aesthetic request from women who wish to enhance facial features. These interventions are performed in both younger and older women and can result in exaggerated or over-augmented lips and cheeks. This unsatisfactory outcome in older women might be due to the inappropriate application of filler enhancement principles that are based the characteristics of a young face. These existing principles do not necessarily translate well to an older face due to underlying facial skeletal changes associated with aging...

This case report highlights a unique variant of seborrheic dermatitis (SD) in a 30-year-old African-American woman with progressive facial papules. Four weeks of uninterrupted mild potency topical corticosteroid therapy produced marked improvement of signs and symptoms of biopsy-confirmed SD. SD mimicking cutaneous sarcoidosis is a unique treatment-responsive variant of SD that may be more likely to be encountered in African-American patients.
