Acquired atresia of the external acoustic meatus is a rare pathological condition characterized by obliteration of the medial part of the external acoustic canal by a soft fibrous plug. The present article presents an overview of a series of cases of acquired atresia and stenosis of the external acoustic meatus with the description of etiology, pathogenesis, and methods for the treatment of this condition. In the majority of the cases, atresia develops at the final stage of granulation external otitis with or without an accompanying dermatological pathology...

<p>Background: Dermatologists were historically well versed in the use of radiation therapy for the management of non-melanoma skin cancers and various inflammatory dermatologic conditions. With the advent of Mohs micrographic surgery and therapeutic discoveries for treating inflammatory dermatoses, radiotherapy assumed loss of a role in the clinical repertoire of the dermatologist. In recent years, its importance has again been realized for the management of non-melanoma skin cancers not amenable to surgical treatment or as adjuvant or palliative therapy...

Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS) is a rare genetic syndrome with variable expressivity and autosomal dominant inheritance. The major features of GGS include numerous basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), keratocysts of the jaw, palmar/plantar pits and calcification of the falx cerebri. Authors report the case of a 51-year-old male with a 19-year history of GGS and multiple BCCs of the head and neck. He presented with a large ulcerating lesion on the right side of his face involving cutaneous, subcutaneous and muscular tissues of the temporal and orbital region...

We have developed dual-axis optical coherence tomography (DA-OCT) which enables deep tissue imaging by using a novel off-axis illumination/detection configuration. DA-OCT offers a 100-fold speed increase compared with its predecessor, multispectral multiple-scattering low coherence interferometry (ms2/LCI), by using a new beam scanning mechanism based on a microelectro-mechanical system (MEMS) mirror. The data acquisition scheme was altered to take advantage of this scanning speed, producing tomographic images at a rate of 4 frames (B-scans) per second...

Christopher A Stone, Anthony M R Downs
There have been few studies investigating diagnostic accuracy between plastic surgeons, or comparing this with dermatologists. Use of dermoscopy by dermatologists has widened the diagnostic gap between dermatologists and plastic surgeons, with plastic surgery lagging behind dermatology in learning this technique. Consequently, plastic surgeons are likely to have a lower threshold for performing a diagnostic or excisional biopsy than dermatologists, leading to a higher rate of intervention for lesions that could otherwise be managed non-surgically...

Membership in medical societies is associated with a number of benefits to members that may include professional education, opportunities to present research, scientific and/or leadership training, networking and others. In this perspective article, the authors address the value that medical specialty society membership and inclusion have in the development of an academic physician's career and how underrepresentation of women may pose barriers to their career advancement. Because society membership itself is not likely sufficient to support the advancement of academic physicians, this report focuses on one key component of advancement that can also be used as a measure of inclusion in society activities-the representation of women physicians among recipients of recognition awards...

Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic multisystem disorder with prominent skin involvement that frequently occurs in early childhood. Dermatologic manifestations include facial angiofibromas, hypomelanotic macules, fibrous cephalic plaques, shagreen patches, and ungual fibromas. The International TSC Consensus Conference in 2012 provided guidelines for standardized baseline evaluation and follow-up. Detailed clinical dermatological evaluation at the time of diagnosis and annual skin examination is recommended for both pediatric and adult populations...

Patients undergoing Mohs micrographic surgery frequently experience anxiety as a result of multiple potential factors. There is currently no data regarding how this anxiety compares to other common procedures performed in dermatology offices, such as shave biopsy and excision, relative to a general dermatology visit. Herein, we conducted a survey of 471 dermatology patients at an academic medical center, using a validated tool (Visual Analogue Scale from 1 "no anxiety at all" to 10 "extremely anxious").

It is common for dermatology surgery patients to present on the day of surgery with more than one skin cancer needing Mohs micrographic surgery. When these carcinomas are located near one another, it may be more practical to treat both at the same time as the reconstruction for one defect may involve or otherwise affect the treatment or reconstruction for the other carcinoma. Treating both cancers on the same day creates an opportunity for efficient repairs where a creative single reconstruction may minimize the amount of tissue wasted during reconstruction,and minimize morbidity for the patient...

Facial nerve dysfunction can be functionally and cosmetically debilitating and is commonly associated with high anxiety for patients. We report 3 cases of temporary, unilateral facial nerve palsy following dermatologic surgery under local anaesthesia over the preauricular cheek and mandibular angle, which, to our knowledge, has not been reported in the literature. Given its frightening presentation mimicking a stroke, it is essential for dermatologists to become aware of this complication to inform their patients more thoroughly...

BACKGROUND: Currently, the isotretinoin (13-cis-retinoic acid) package insert contains language advising the discontinuation of isotretinoin for 6 months before performing cosmetic procedures, including waxing, dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser procedures, or incisional and excisional cold-steel surgery. It is common practice to follow this standard because of concerns regarding reports of sporadic adverse events and increased risk of scarring. OBJECTIVE: To develop expert consensus regarding the safety of skin procedures, including resurfacing, energy device treatments, and incisional and excisional procedures, in the setting of concurrent or recent isotretinoin use...
