Pigmented Bowen's disease (pBD) is an uncommon in situ squamous cell carcinoma of the skin usually presenting as a dark scaly plaque involving chronically exposed sites, which is not uncommonly mistaken for other similar pigmented lesions, such as melanoma, pigmented basal cell carcinoma or seborrheic keratosis [1,2]. Dermoscopy has been proven to improve its diagnosis by showing several findings, i.e., gray/brownish dots in linear arrangement, scales, coiled vessels, focal/multifocal amorphous hypopigmentation and bluish structureless areas [1,2]...

BACKGROUND: There are limited studies on the dermoscopic features of mucosal melanoma, particularly early-stage lesions. Described criteria include the presence of blue, gray, or white colors, with a reported sensitivity of 100%. It is unclear if these features will aid in the detection of early mucosal melanoma or improve diagnostic accuracy compared to naked-eye examination alone. CASE: An Asian female in her fifties was referred for evaluation of an asymptomatic, irregularly pigmented patch of the clitoral hood and labia minora of unknown duration...

Lichen planus (LP) is an inflammatory disease that affects the skin-mainly the extremities and the trunk-the mucous membranes, the genitalia, the nails and the scalp. The diagnosis of LP is usually established clinically based on the typical morphology and distribution of the lesions in conjunction with the associated itch. We report a patient with LP manifesting highly psoriasiform lesions, that could only be correctly assessed after the application of dermoscopy, which revealed LP-specific findings.

Tristan Hicks, Ian Katz
We present a case of acquired elastotic hemangioma (AEH), a rare, benign vascular tumor. A Caucasian male in his 60s presented with an asymptomatic, solitary, non-pigmented and violaceous lesion of short duration on the dorsum of his hand. The lesion had unique clinical, dermatoscopic and pathological features. Dermatoscopic images of the lesion are presented for characterization and histopathological correlation that have not previously been published or described.

BACKGROUND: IgA pemphigus is a rare autoimmune vesiculo-pustular skin disease. Only approximately 70 cases have been reported to date. We report a case of IgA pemphigus with IgA antibodies to desmoglein 1 (Dsg1) and desmoglein 3 (Dsg3). CASE REPORT: We report the case of an 60-year-old man with intraepidermal neutrophilic IgA pemphigus with IgA antibodies to Dsg1 and Dsg3. Histologic examination revealed subcorneal neutrophilic pustules with few acantholytic cells...

Efforts have been expended to evaluate the reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) features of different clinical entities in order to more thoroughly delineate benign versus malignant features. In this way, RCM can help clinicians to be more selective in regard to undertaking appropriate skin biopsies and improving their benign to malignant ratio. Herein, we report a case of a histopathologically proven melanoacanthoma, a variant of seborrheic keratosis. There are scarce reports describing the RCM features of melanoacanthoma...

BACKGROUND: Hypomelanotic or amelanotic melanomas are challenging to identify, especially at mucosal sites. The dermoscopic clues to the diagnosis of mucosal melanomas have been reported to be structureless zones with the presence of blue, gray, or white colors. CASE: A female in her seventies noted a new lesion on the inside of her right labia that first appeared two months prior. Her past medical history was significant for rheumatoid arthritis requiring ongoing treatment with methotrexate for 20 years and adalimumab for 10 years...

Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is a chronic disorder of keratinization of unclear pathogenesis. PRP-like eruptions induced by drugs have rarely been described. A previously healthy 29-year-old man presented with a generalized, rapidly spreading, erythematosquamous dermatosis, that started three days after initiation of subcutaneous insulin therapy for diabetes mellitus type 1. Clinical and histopathological features were consistent with a PRP-like eruption, possibly due to insulin therapy. The patient was switched to insulin analogue therapy and a complete healing of all lesions was achieved after two months...

Aleksandra Kulberg, Wolfgang Weyers
BACKGROUND: Benign lichenoid keratosis (BLK, LPLK) is often misdiagnosed clinically as superficial basal-cell carcinoma (BCC), especially when occurring on the trunk. However, BCCs undergoing regression may be associated with a lichenoid interface dermatitis that may be misinterpreted as BLK in histopathologic sections. METHODS: In order to assess the frequency of remnants of BCC in lesions interpreted as BLK, we performed step sections on 100 lesions from the trunk of male patients that had been diagnosed as BLK...

BACKGROUND: Biologic agents are routinely used in the treatment of severe psoriasis. The evaluation of treatment response is mainly based on the physician's global clinical assessment. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether dermoscopy might enhance the assessment of response of psoriasis to treatment with biologic agents. METHODS: Patients with severe psoriasis scheduled to receive a biologic agent were enrolled in the study. A target lesion from each patient was clinically and dermoscopically documented at baseline and after one, two and six months...

BACKGROUND: Early detection of melanoma is vital for treatment outcome and survival. Short-term sequential digital dermoscopic monitoring (ST-SDDM) involves the capture and assessment of dermoscopic images of one or more atypical melanocytic lesions (AMLs), at baseline and after four months, in order to detect early morphologic changes. Electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a diagnostic tool with high sensitivity for the detection of malignant melanocytic lesions. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess whether EIS, in addition to ST-SDDM, could improve the selection of AMLs requiring surgery...

Molluscum contagiosum is a benign cutaneous viral infection which is caused by double- stranded DNA poxvirus. It affects mainly children and young adults and usually presents with single or multiple umblicated papules or nodules on face, arms, legs and anogenital regions. It may present in atypical size and clinical appearance in patients with altered or impaired immunity and rarely in immuncompetent patients. Herein we present an immuncompetent young adult patient with isolated giant molluscum contagiosum, which was mimicking epidermoid cyst clinically...

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is an FDA approved noninvasive optical imaging technique that acquires cellular level-resolution skin images in vivo. Herein, we report a case of histopathologically proven large cell acanthoma (LCA) whose RCM features simulate those of squamous cell carcinoma in situ.

Enzo Errichetti, Giuseppe Stinco
Clinical distinction between pityriasis amiantacea-like tinea capitis and pityriasis amiantacea due to noninfectious inflammatory diseases is a troublesome task, with a significant likelihood of diagnostic errors/delays and prescription of inappropriate therapies. We report a case of pityriasis amiantacea-like tinea capitis with its dermoscopic findings in order to highlight the usefulness of dermoscopy in improving the recognition of such a condition.

Eccrine poroma is a rare benign adnexal tumor of epithelial cells originating from the terminal ductal portion of the sweat glands that is typically located on palms and soles, although other cutaneous sites can be affected [1]. It is usually nonpigmented even if there is a pigmented variant that corresponds to 17% of cases and it is usually underdiagnosed, since it is mistakenly confused with other pigmented tumors [2,3]. Dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) may assist in the correct diagnosis of this tumor...

A number of neutrophilic dermatoses are associated with malignancies and their treatment. These rarely occur together in the same patient. A Caucasian 72-year-old male was treated for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with chemotherapy including daunorubicin and cytarabine. Within 48 hours of commencing treatment, he developed pyrexia and, two days later, disseminated non-tender pink plaques on the limbs and trunk. A skin biopsy showed a dermal interstitial infiltrate of lymphocytes, histiocytoid cells and predominantly neutrophils...

Cristián Navarrete-Dechent, Shirin Bajaj, Ashfaq A Marghoob, Sergio González, Daniel Muñoz
Trichoepitheliomas are uncommon benign adnexal neoplasms that originate from the hair follicles. Multiple familial trichoepithelioma constitute an autosomal dominant disease characterized by the appearance of multiple flesh-colored, symmetrical papules, tumors and/or nodules in the central face and occasionally on the scalp. Although clinical diagnosis is usually straightforward in light of the family history and naked-eye examination, dermoscopy may aid in its confirmation. Dermoscopy of each papule revealed in-focus arborizing vessels, multiple milia-like cysts and rosettes amidst a whitish background...

Superficial angiomyxomas (SA) of the skin are rare benign cutaneous tumors of soft tissue composed of prominent myxoid matrix and numerous blood vessels. SA are more common in males [1] and they are usually located on the trunk but can also appear on the lower limbs, head, neck and genitalia [2,3]. Treatment is surgical, the total excision is curative, but local recurrence is possible [4]. Herein we present a 72-year-old patient with a history of melanoma in situ, with a new lesion on the lower back.
