BACKGROUND: Epidermolytic acanthoma (EA) is an uncommon benign cutaneous lesion. Multiple epidermolytic acanthomas (multiple EAs) are rarely reported. METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients diagnosed with multiple EAs between 2005 and 2017 from our dermatopathology database and analyzed their clinical, pathological, and immunohistochemical features. We also evaluated the association of multiple EAs with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. RESULTS: In total, eight patients (average age 51 years; 3 : 1 male predominance) with multiple EAs were found...

Academic advancement in dermatopathology requires evidence of scientific production. The H-index is a useful bibliometric for measuring scientific production because it weights both volume and impact of an individual's scholastic production. The H-index distribution among academic dermatopathologists is unknown. In this cross-sectional study of 299 dermatopathologists with academic appointments in North America, H-index, publication counts, and citation counts were retrieved from Thomas Reuters Web of Science...

CONTEXT: - Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common human malignant neoplasm and is a frequently encountered diagnosis in dermatopathology. Although BCC may be locally destructive, it rarely metastasizes. Many diagnostic entities display morphologic and immunophenotypic overlap with BCC, including nonneoplastic processes, such as follicular induction over dermatofibroma; benign follicular tumors, such as trichoblastoma, trichoepithelioma, or basaloid follicular hamartoma; and malignant tumors, such as sebaceous carcinoma or Merkel cell carcinoma...

Importance: Digital pathology represents a transformative technology that impacts dermatologists and dermatopathologists from residency to academic and private practice. Two concerns are accuracy of interpretation from whole-slide images (WSI) and effect on workflow. Studies of considerably large series involving single-organ systems are lacking. Objective: To evaluate whether diagnosis from WSI on a digital microscope is inferior to diagnosis of glass slides from traditional microscopy (TM) in a large cohort of dermatopathology cases with attention on image resolution, specifically eosinophils in inflammatory cases and mitotic figures in melanomas, and to measure the workflow efficiency of WSI compared with TM...

Although carcinoma in situ has been accepted as a well-established concept and diagnostic category, for reasons unknown sebaceous carcinoma in situ has not been recognized yet in general pathology or dermatopathology. Such lesions have always been misinterpreted as either benign neoplasm or sebaceous carcinoma. In the present essay, we provide a convincing account supporting sebaceous carcinoma in situ as a valid concept and diagnostic entity via critical literature review and histopathological assessment and illustration...

While histological examination is considered by most as the gold standard for burn depth assessment, it has no practical use in the clinical setting. It has, however, been used in the research setting, as a mean for evaluating emerging techniques of depth measurement. Due to the limitations of the H&E stain, other stains have also been explored, such as lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), as presented in this issue, in "Improving the Histologic Characterization of Burn Depth." As the determination of burn depth is not a typical subject in dermatopathology, a summary of selected techniques and the possible role for the LDH stain in future research, is described herein...

OBJECTIVES: Pathologist-clinician communication has been an ongoing topic in the literature. Pathology reports are geared to assisting clinicians with patient therapy, but sometimes there are barriers to communication. This survey aims to explore clinicians' understanding of their pathology reports in the membership of the International Society for Vulvovaginal Disease (ISSVD). METHODS: An email survey was sent to all members of the ISSVD. RESULTS: Surveys were emailed to 397 members, with 91 responding (23 %)...

Whitney A High
The assessment of melanoma by light microscopy with hematoxylin-eosin staining remains an often subjective process. However, there are additional diagnostic measures that may be of utility, such as immunohistochemical staining and genetic evaluation. Adjunctive genetic assessment to augment the diagnosis of melanoma includes comparative genomic hybridization or fluorescent in situ hybridization to assess for gains or losses in genetic material, or gene expression profiling in some form, to ascertain the expression of genes associated with malignancy...

Clinicopathological classification, diagnosis and management of spitzoid melanocytic lesion presents one of the most intriguing issues in dermatopathology (1,2). No single clinicopathological feature can offer reliable differentiation of Spitz nevus and melanoma. Although not all the experts agree with the concept of Spitzoid neoplasms as a morpho-biological spectrum, there is a four-tiered classification system proposed by Da Forno et al. and encompassing: 1) Spitz nevus; 2) atypical Spitz nevus; 3) (atypical) Spitz tumor; 4) Spitzoid melanoma (1,3)...

Nicolau syndrome is a rare form of iatrogenic cutaneous necrosis which affects injection sites. Although classically associated with intramuscular injections, it may develop after subcutaneous or other routes of parenteral drug administration. Clinically, it manifests as necrotic ulcers that often develop in a background of erythematous and livedoid reticular patches. The histopathologic characteristics of Nicolau syndrome are poorly documented in the dermatopathology literature and features only rarely as one of the obscure causes of cutaneous thrombotic vasculopathy...

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...
