REVIEW
Emily H Smith, May P Chan
Owing to the wide variety and complexity of inflammatory skin diseases, inflammatory dermatopathology can be a challenging topic for dermatopathologists and general surgical pathologists alike. Following a basic tissue reaction pattern approach, this article reviews the most common and important entities of each pattern, with emphasis on differential diagnosis, diagnostic pitfalls, and appropriate workup when indicated. A few dermatologic emergencies are also discussed.

The practice of dermatopathology requires close interaction between dermatologists and dermatopathologists. Yet, in many areas of the developing world, dermatologists lack easy access to pathologists with expertise in skin disease. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media provide free powerful tools that enhance interaction between dermatology and pathology regardless of geographic barriers. Although there are some limitations, the immense potential benefits that social media unlocks for patient care, education, research, and networking cannot be overstated...

Human papillomaviruses have been implicated in many cutaneous diseases. Practicing dermatopathologists often consider using immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization to help clarify the histologic diagnosis, particularly in cases with borderline or non-diagnostic features. We reviewed the current evidence behind the use of these two techniques in dermatopathology. We identified only two studies utilizing the currently available immunohistochemical antibodies. We found more evidence regarding the use of in situ hybridization; however, the majority of this evidence focuses on diagnosing condylomas and other lesions of the genital skin...

BACKGROUND: Digital pathology (DP) systems have been validated for routine, histopathological diagnosis by several investigators. The diagnostic matter in previous studies is composed mostly of neoplasms. However, in dermatopathology, inflammatory diseases constitute a greater proportion of cases and have been under-represented in this literature. Herein, we report the results of a prospective, DP side-by-side validation study comparing the histologic assessment of routine, clinical inflammatory dermatopathology cases by whole slide imaging (WSI) and traditional light microscopy (LM)...

Muir-Torre syndrome is a clinical variant of Lynch syndrome defined by the synchronous or metachronous occurrence of at least one sebaceous neoplasm and at least one Lynch syndrome-related internal cancer. Although screening guidelines for patients with colorectal carcinomas have been established, screening guidelines for cutaneous Muir-Torre associated neoplasms are not currently available. As such, we reviewed the current evidence for the use of MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, and PMS2 immunohistochemistry when cutaneous Muir-Torre associated neoplasms are encountered...

Dermatopathology is a subspecialty of pathology and dermatology involving correlation of clinical information with microscopic observations of skin biopsies to provide diagnostic information. Pediatric dermatology is a subspecialty of dermatology for which specific points need to be known for evaluating and managing skin disorders in children. The histopathological approach and other important factors for definitive diagnoses in pediatric dermatopathology are reviewed. Skin diseases in children are not necessarily smaller versions of those that develop in adults and some diaseases may be confined to pediatric age group...

Syringotropic mycosis fungoides (STMF) is a very rare variant of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. It follows a much milder disease course than its clinically indistinguishable adnexal counterpart, folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF). We report a case of a 36-year-old man who presented with erythematous, studded papules and plaques on the left upper extremity and right anterior thigh diagnosed as mycosis fungoides (MF) Stage 1A on initial superficial shave biopsy. Lesions recurred after initial improvement with narrow-band ultraviolet light therapy demonstrating a concentration of abnormal lymphocytes around eccrine sweat glands on repeat biopsy consistent with STMF...

BACKGROUND: Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma (AEGCG), a rare entity first described in 1979, is very similar to O'Brien actinic granuloma (AG), first described in 1975. Since then, many cases have been published under one or other of the two names. We performed a single-centre histopathology study to identify the distinguishing features and determine whether there was any objective difference between AEGCG and AG. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Cases classed as AEGCG or AG at the dermatopathology laboratory in Strasbourg were included and analysed using haematoxylin-eosin, orcein and Alcian blue staining...

CONTEXT: - Use of social media in the medical profession is an increasingly prevalent and sometimes controversial practice. Many doctors believe social media is the future and embrace it as an educational and collaborative tool. Others maintain reservations concerning issues such as patient confidentiality, legal and ethical risks. OBJECTIVE: - To explore the utility of social media as an educational and collaborative tool in dermatopathology. DESIGN: - We constructed 2 identical surveys containing questions pertaining to the responders' demographics and opinions regarding the use of social media for dermatopathology...

BACKGROUND: FISH has recently emerged as a technique to better assess the malignant potential of histologically ambiguous melanocytic lesions. However, the usefulness of FISH has not been conclusively established. The purpose of this study was to further explore the diagnostic value of FISH in distinguishing the borderline melanocytic tumor (BMT) from melanoma. METHOD: 73 cases with BMT were analyzed retrospectively from a dermatopathology database between 2010-2015...

In the dermatopathological practice, there is a group of atypical melanocytic lesions with borderline histological features between benign simulants and malignant melanoma (MM), due to conflicting diagnostic criteria and inter-observer disagreement. In these cases, the dermatopathologist is authorized to seek consult with an established expert in the field, but even the most experienced specialist may not be sure about the correct diagnosis and the subsequent biological behavior. There is general consensus among qualified dermatopathologists that can be helpful to insert these ambiguous cases into two diagnostic categories: SAMPUS (Superficial Atypical Melanocytic Proliferations of Unknown Significance) and MELTUMP (MELanocytic Tumors of Uncertain Malignant Potential)...

Continuing technological advances are inevitably impacting the study and practice of dermatopathology (DP). We are seeing the transition from glass slide microscopy to virtual microscopy, which is serving both as an accessible educational medium for medical students, residents and fellows in the form of online databases and atlases, as well as a research tool to better inform us regarding the development of visual diagnostic expertise. Expansion in mobile technology is simplifying slide image attainment and providing greater opportunities for phone- and tablet-based microscopy, including teledermatopathology instruction and consultation in resource-poor areas with lack of specialists...

BACKGROUND: Dermatopathology is considered the gold standard for melanoma diagnosis, but a subset of cases is difficult to diagnose by histopathology. OBJECTIVE: The goals of this study were to measure the accuracy of histopathologic features in difficult-to-diagnose melanocytic tumors and the interobserver agreement of those features. METHODS: This is a case-control study of histopathologic features of melanoma in 100 difficult-to-diagnose melanocytic neoplasms (40 melanomas and 60 nevi)...

BACKGROUND: Seborrheic keratosis (SK), a common and benign entity, is generally diagnosed clinically without the need for a biopsy. Given their variable appearance, SK may mimic cancer clinically and require biopsy for clinically equivocal cases. A clinician may also choose to perform biopsies on SK based on other circumstances, such as cosmetic reasons or SK being in an inconvenient and irritative location. METHODS: Dermatopathology samples from 2015 obtained from private and university locations were retrospectively assessed...

Modern dermatology is a reflection of the advances achieved in the general medical world. Thus, in recent years, dermatology encompasses many different fields and consequently, various subspecialties were created. In addition to dermatopathology and dermatosurgery, which are formal subspecialties, other fields of expertise include: autoimmune diseases, especially bullous diseases, hair and nail disorders, allergic diseases, infectious diseases and pigmented lesion clinics and oncodermatology. This current issue of "Harefuah" incorporates research and review articles from experts of the different subspecialties mentioned...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of malignant melanoma (MM) is among the diagnostic challenges pathologists encounter on a routine basis. Melanoma may arise in patients with preexisting dysplastic nevi (DN) and it is still the cause of 1.7% of all cancer-related deaths. Melanomas often have overlapping histological features with DN, especially those with severe dysplasia. Nucleotyping for identifying nuclear textural features can analyze nuclear DNA structure and organization. The aim of this study is to differentiate MM and DN using these methodologies...
