Facial lichen planus pigmentosus (LPPig), a rare variant of classic lichen planus, was first described in patients with frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) by Dlova [Br J Dermatol 2013; 168: 439-442] in 2013. The diagnosis of facial LPPig is sometimes not easy, since clinical signs and histopathological features may frequently be confused with melasma or postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. We describe a case of a postmenopausal black woman diagnosed with FFA who presented with an identical brown-grayish pigmentation of the face and upper eyelids and typical dermoscopy analysis on both regions...

Half-and-half nails were originally described as a transverse leukonychia in patients with chronic renal disease; other conditions (such as Behcet's and Crohn's disease) and medications (such as isoniazid) have also been associated with the nail changes. However, longitudinal half-and-half nails (affecting the medial aspects of the nails) have previously been reported on the great toes of an older woman and, in the present case, on the thumbs of an elderly man; neither person had Behcet's, Crohn's, or kidney disease or was receiving isoniazid...

Onychogryphosis is a disorder of nail plate growth that is clinically characterized by an opaque, yellow-brown thickening of the nail plate with associated gross hyperkeratosis, elongation, and increased curvature. It is most common in older adults and patients with poor personal care. It is a relatively common and important condition because patients may suffer from pain, secondary complications, and cosmetic concerns. We present the case of a 67-year-old man with a 30-year history of severe thickening, abnormal growth, and yellow discoloration of his left great toenail, clinically consistent with onychogryphosis...

Nail involvement is a very common finding in patients with alopecia areata (AA). Most commonly evidenced by nail pitting, nail abnormalities can affect up to 66% of AA patients. We present two cases of the unusual association between habit tic nail deformities and AA.

Bullous aplasia cutis congenita (BACC) is a rather uncommon entity. The diagnosis can be quite tricky as the entity is not very frequent. Trichoscopy might in these cases be helpful to achieve the correct diagnosis. In this article, we describe for the first time a new sign for BACC that we believe can be useful to arrive at the correct diagnosis.

We have observed three patients on anticancer therapies presenting with asymmetric acral spared phenomenon and found six identical cases in the literature. All of them had common features, an alteration of the peripheral nerves affecting a limb unilaterally that was spared by a hand-foot syndrome or hand-foot skin reaction. A drug-induced neurotropic effect sounds logical for developing such alterations with specific chemotherapeutic agents (taxanes, cap-ecitabine), while we have not found good explanations concerning the multikinase inhibitor sorafenib nor the topo isomerase inhibitor adriamycin...

Chikungunya (CHK) fever is a re-emerging RNA viral infection caused by the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes which presents with a multitude of mucocutaneous manifestations, including a characteristic morbilliform rash, centrofacial pigmentation, aphthae-like lesions, and vesiculobullous lesions sparing mucosae. The majority of these lesions resolve spontaneously and do not require specific therapy. With regular and cyclical outbreaks in many countries for many decades, it is obligatory for dermatologists to be aware of the different skin lesions in the wake of early diagnosis and the need for conservative management...

Brunsting-Perry type pemphigoid (BPP) is a rare subepidermal blistering disease and a cause of secondary cicatricial alopecia. It was originally described by Brunsting and Perry in 1957 as a rare variant of cicatricial pemphigoid, characterized by bullous lesions limited to the head, neck, scalp, and upper trunk with mild or no mucosal involvement. We report 2 cases of BPP cicatricial alopecia with histopathology of subepidermal blister formation, different clinical presentation, and different salt-split test results...

Background: There is limited research into normative hair density values in individuals of Hispanic descent. Methods: In order to help establish baseline density values in these individuals, we evaluated the hair density in 99 Americans of Hispanic descent and compared them with the values in 44 individuals of African descent and 23 Caucasians. Participants were recruited from a New York City medical center and self-identified their ethnicity. Biracial individuals were excluded from the study...

Introduction: Acne is a chronic disorder of the pilosebaceous unit affecting all ethnic groups. It remains in the top 5 skin conditions seen worldwide. The paucity of data characterizing acne in South African Blacks led us to the documentation of types and sequelae of acne. Methods: This is a cross- sectional study describing the spectrum and variants of acne in 5 tertiary hospitals in the second most populous province in South Africa over 3 months (January 1 - March 31, 2015)...

Purpose of the Study: The aim of the present prospective multicenter open study was to clinically and instrumentally evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of a shampoo, Mellis Cap® shampoo, containing ichthyol, zanthalene, mandelic acid, and honeydew honey in the treatment of mild to moderate scalp psoriasis. Procedures: Thirty subjects with mild to moderate psoriasis applied the shampoo three times a week for 12 weeks. The outcome was evaluated at 30 days (T1), 60 days (T2), and 90 days (T3) of treatment, comparing it to baseline (T0) by means of clinical and patients' evaluation, digital photographs, and videodermoscopy...

Background: Data about the contribution and the implications of dermoscopy in trichostasis spinulosa (TS) are lacking in the literature. Objective: To describe dermoscopic features of TS in a large sample of patients and to correlate dermoscopy with clinical characteristics of the patients and therapeutic responses to medical treatments. Methods: A descriptive study was conducted (from October 2015 to June 2016) at the Department of Dermatology of Fez in Morocco...

Background: Alopecia areata (AA) is a disease characterized by focally, nonscarring hair loss on the scalp or any hair-bearing surface. The etiology is unknown, although the evidence suggests that AA is an immunologically mediated disease. In the pathogenesis of AA, Th1 immune response is predominant. A special cytokine profile is created by Th1 cells, which disturbs the natural balance of the cytokine networks and leads to inflammatory reaction and follicle damage. Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate serum concentrations of IL-2 in patients with AA and healthy subjects...
