Managing pregnant patients with a history of melanoma or with a melanoma diagnosis can be daunting and confusing for dermatologists. We present three clinical scenarios that raise questions about the safety of pregnancy in patients with a history of melanoma, skin biopsies during pregnancy, and excisions and sentinel lymph node biopsies during pregnancy. Our recommendations incorporate the most up-to-date clinical data to help guide clinicians when faced with pigmented lesions and melanoma in a pregnant patient...

Pemphigus is a rare autoimmune disease during pregnancy. Among the different pemphigus types, pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is even rarer than pemphigus vulgaris. We present a case of PF in a 36-year-old female patient who presented with PF onset during pregnancy in the form of a disseminated, erythematosquamous rash. A diagnosis was made on the basis of histologic, immunofluorescence, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay results. A complete remission was recorded a month after steroid treatment initiation. The patient delivered a premature (33 weeks) but otherwise healthy baby girl...

The immunoassays that are available for the serological diagnosis of the more common subtypes of autoimmune blistering diseases such as pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and pemphigus foliaceus (PF) include enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) testing to specific antigens desmoglein (Dsg)1 and Dsg3, direct immunofluorescence (DIF), indirect immunofluorescence (IIF), and immunoblotting. A review of the literature on the biochip assay was conducted. Six studies investigated the validity of a new biochip, mosaic-based, IIF test in patients with pemphigus and demonstrated its relatively high sensitivity and specificity (Dsg3: 97...

Background: Dry skin and the associated impaired epidermal barrier function are postulated to constitute a major element in the development of atopic dermatitis. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of two plant-based formulations on the epidermal barrier function in a defined cohort of infants with a predisposition for atopic dermatitis. Methods: Over a period of 16 weeks, 25 infants who were ages 3 to 12 months and had an atopic predisposition and dry skin received two emollients that contained pressed juice of the ice plant...

Background: Alopecia areata is a relapsing hair disorder characterized by a sudden hairloss and has a considerable impact on patient's quality of life. The goal of this study was to determine quality of life among patients with mild and severe forms of alopecia areata and compare the two groups. Methods: During one year, 176 patients (96 mild, 80 severe) were selected and asked to complete Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) questionnaires. Results: Our study revealed that the severe group was predominantly female and had higher amount of unemployment, more prolonged disease duration, unstable disease course and facial involvement...

Background: Cutaneous warts are caused by a small group of specific types of human papillomaviruses. Cryotherapy is a highly effective treatment for patients with viral warts; however, it is a painful method and usually requires several treatment sessions. Zinc is a trace element with many proven effects on the immune system. Objective: Our aim was to assess the efficacy and safety of oral zinc sulfate in the treatment and recurrence rate of common warts. Methods: Eighty-three patients with common warts participated in this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial...

Background: The variety and complexity of dermatologic diseases in Afghanistan and the associated diagnostic resource constraints have not been previously studied. Moreover, the utility of store-and-forward teledermatopathology in this resource-limited setting has not been investigated. Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 150 store-and-forward teledermatopathology cases that were composed of a clinical history, clinical images, and histologic images that were sent from an academic teaching hospital in Kabul to a dermatology-trained dermatopathologist at Emory University in the United States between November 2013 and June 2017...

REVIEW

This review focuses on the treatment options for adult female patients with acne. Acne in adult female patients may start during adolescence and persist or have an onset in adulthood. Acne has various psychosocial effects that impact patients' quality of life. Treatment of acne in adult women specifically has its challenges due to the considerations of patient preferences, pregnancy, and lactation. Treatments vary widely and treatment should be tailored specifically for each individual woman. We review conventional therapies with high levels of evidence, additional treatments with support from cohort studies and case reports, complementary and/or alternative therapies, and new agents under development for the treatment of patients with acne...

REVIEW
Swaranjali V Jain, Dedee F Murrell
Inherited and autoimmune blistering diseases are rare, chronic, and often severe disorders that have the potential to significantly affect patients' quality of life. The effective management of these conditions requires consideration of the physical, emotional, and social aspects of the disease. Self-esteem is integral to patients' ability to cope with their illness, participate in treatment, and function in society. This article discusses quality-of-life studies of patients with blistering diseases with a particular focus on self-esteem issues that patients may face...

S Higgins, A Wysong
With the increasing volume and popularity of cosmetic procedures and surgeries, physicians in related specialties are increasingly likely to encounter patients with body dysmorphic disorder. Given the ethical, safety, and legal considerations involved in aesthetic procedures in these patients, accurate identification and appropriate selection for procedures is crucial.

Melasma is a common disorder of hyperpigmentation characterized by tan or brown macules and patches affecting sun-exposed areas, particularly the face. Melasma has been shown to have a significant impact on the quality of life and self-esteem of those affected. We interviewed six patients who were diagnosed with moderate-to-severe melasma with regard to the effect of their disorder on their self-esteem. All patients reported a significant negative effect on their quality of life and self-esteem. With successful therapy using a triple combination of cream and oral tranexamic acid to treat their melasma, all reported a marked improvement in self-esteem...

REVIEW
D S Davis, V D Callender
Alopecia is a dermatologic condition that affects the pilosebaceous unit in both men and women. In addition to a thorough medical history and physical examination, a host of diagnostic tools may be warranted to differentiate nonscarring and scarring alopecias. Female pattern hair loss represents the most common form of hair loss experienced by up to 40% of women by a certain age. Although alopecia is a benign disorder, even the most negligible amount of hair loss can be devastating to a patient's self-esteem, self-image, and overall quality of life...

R B Shah
There is a strong known link between the mind and the skin, with studies indicating that some individuals who live with skin disorders can exhibit high levels of psychological distress. Historically, the psychological impact of skin conditions has often been disregarded by health professionals, friends, and family members. However, more recently, clinicians are becoming aware of the benefits of combining medical and psychological treatment for these patients. Within the United Kingdom, this is becoming more popular within dermatology due to a recent study that measured clinical utility and cost savings...

REVIEW
N Rumsey
This article offers an overview of the current understanding of the psychological factors and processes that play a part in the continuum of distress and positive adjustment in people who are affected by dermatological conditions that affect appearance. Despite research demonstrating the significant psychosocial challenges posed by visible difference and mounting evidence of the role played by psychosocial variables in the etiology, exacerbation, and treatment of skin conditions, current healthcare provisions focus predominantly on the amelioration of physical manifestations...
