BACKGROUND: Conventional surgery of toe syndactyly is accomplished using a zig-zag incision and full thickness or split thickness skin grafting. However, this method has an aesthetic problem with a prominent scar on the dorsal side of the foot. The aim of the article was to investigate the efficacy of a cosmetically conscious operation for syndactylies performed using a single technique. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed involving 66 patients with 88 syndactylic toes who presented to the department of plastic and reconstructive surgery at 1 of 3 major institutions during a 16-year period (1998-2014)...

BACKGROUND: Keloids are benign fibro-proliferative skin lesions that very rarely occur on the soles. Because of their rarity, the diagnosis of plantar keloids can be difficult. We describe the clinical and histopathological characteristics of eight plantar keloids. METHODS: All patients presenting with plantar keloids between 2005 and 2012 in our Dermatology unit were retrospectively included. Diagnosis was definitely established by re-reading of pathological slides in all cases...

Keloid formation of the plantar region is rare and a unique challenge to surgeons. We used a conservative "wait and see" approach for recurrent keloid in the plantar region in two patients and recommended that the patients used custom-made shoes. Both patients were pleased with the result. The keloids regressed and flattened. During our minimum of five years follow-up the patients had no pain, tenderness, paraesthesiae, or problems with walking. We found no complications. Keloids should not be treated aggressively, and in plantar keloids the conservative "wait and see" approach may provide successful results without any complication...

Cutaneous cryosurgery refers to localized application of freezing temperatures to achieve destruction of skin lesions. It can be used to treat a broad range of benign and premalignant skin conditions, and certain malignant skin conditions, with high cure rates. Cellular destruction is accomplished by delivery of the cryogen via dipstick, probe, or spray techniques. It is widely used in primary care because of its safety, effectiveness, low cost, ease of use, good cosmetic results, and lack of need for anesthesia...

The keloid scar is a fibrous skin tumor, intradermal, and exuberant. It is commonly found on the glabrous skin. The keloid of the palms and soles are rare. Small series are reported in English literature. The authors report a case of large keloids located on both palms and soles, within a context of keloid disease, in a man of 37 years. On the left hand, the keloid scar caused a partial syndactyly IV-V. Large keloid tumors occupied the inner edge and, weight-bearing areas of both feet. These tumors rendered wearing of shoes impossible and interfered with walking...

SAPHO syndrome is an uncommon clinical entity, recently described in literature, which usually affects children, young adults and middle-aged people. It is defined by the association of skin lesions (severe acne, palmo-plantar pustulosis, supurative hidradenitis), synovitis, hiperosthosis and osteitis; however, not all manifestations are required for correct diagnosis. We report a currently forty-two year-old man who initiated follow-up in 1992 for severe acne. His diagnosis changed along the years and has been treated with antibiotics many times to control pustule formation and hidrosadenitis, which evolved to keloidal scars, requiring neck zethaplasty due to limitation of mobility...

The koranic schools are in poor socio-economical conditions in Dakar and skin diseases are common in these conditions. The goal of our descriptive study was to determine the prevalence of skin diseases occurring in these situations. One hundred five boys from four koranic schools of Dakar were examined. Eighty percent of the examined boys were with unless one skin disease. Tinea capitis (42.66%), scabiosis (13.33%), pyoderma (15.33%), plantar keratodermia (100%) were the skin diseases. In 34.52% these skin disease were associated and antecedents of skin infections diseases were reported in 89...

Polyfibromatosis syndrome is a rare disease entity that is characterized by various clinical features such as palmar, plantar, and penile fibromatoses, keloid formations of the skin, and erosive arthropathy. Its precise pathophysiology or etiology remains unclear. In addition to distinctive diverse skin manifestations, patients with polyfibromatosis have been previously reported to show erosive arthropathy with significant limitation of movement at affected joints. However, the presence of erosive polyarthropathy in polyfibromatosis has not emphasized in previous cases...

Between the two different kinds of the skin covering the body, the glabrous skin is found only on the palmo-plantar surface because of its rather simple function to protect the underlying living tissue with its remarkably thick stratum corneum (SC) from strong external force and friction. Thus, its barrier function is extremely poor. In contrast, the hair-bearing skin covers almost all over the body surface regardless of the presence of long hair or vellus hair. In regard to its SC, many dermatologists and skin scientists think that it is too thin to show any site-specific differences, because the SC is just present as an efficient barrier membrane to protect our body from desiccation as well as against the invasion by external injurious agents...

Syndactyly and polysyndactyly are common congenital conditions involving the foot, and surgery to reconstruct the toes may be indicated for cosmetic, psychological, and practical reasons. A dorsal flap is traditionally used for web space reconstruction, with skin grafts for the bases of the toes. Skin grafting has associated morbidity and can result in pigmentation mismatch. Single-stage direct closure with a specially designed flap has advantages including a reduction of morbidity from avoidance of skin grafting and shorter surgery...

Polyfibromatosis is a rare condition in which several cutaneous fibrotic conditions, such as Dupuytren's contracture, keloid formation, Peyronie's disease and plantar fibromatosis, may coexist. Interstitial granulomatous dermatitis with arthritis is also a rare condition characterized by arthritis and infiltrated rope-like lesions with granulomatous histologic features. We report a case of the simultaneous occurrence of both conditions in the same individual. To our knowledge, this has not been previously described...

By examining the keloid scars of 211 Afrocaribbean patients presenting to the Plastic Surgery unit in Kingston, Jamaica, we have described site-specific morphologies of scarring; keloid disease is not a homogenous biological entity. All cases conformed to clinical criteria for diagnosis of keloid scarring: 369 keloid scars were present in 137 females (2-83 years; mean 29.6 years; SD+/-14.9 years) and 74 males (5-90 years, mean 29.5 years; SD+/-15.0 years). Morphologies were specific to each anatomical site: trunk scars (n=45,12...

Plantar keloids are a management problem as a result of the pain and mechanic restriction with ambulation. We present the treatment of a patient with a particularly large plantar keloid that was refractory to multiple excisions, adjunctive intralesional steroids, and radiation therapy, who was successfully treated with excision, intralesional steroids, and tissue-engineered allograft placement.

A 28-year-old mentally retarded, institutionalised woman was referred to us for evaluation of multiple plantar warts and ingrown nails of both great toes. The patient was born to unrelated parents of North African origin and had one brother and three half-brothers, all of whom were healthy. Physical examination revealed short stature, slight obesity, facial abnormalities (Fig. 1), short and broad thumbs and big toes (Figs. 2 and 3). A keloid was found on the right forearm, that had developed after surgical correction of a fracture (Fig...

Proteus syndrome is a rare, congenital hamartomatous syndrome that presents with a wide range of abnormalities. Regardless of different manifestations found in different patients, there exists three mandatory criteria for the diagnosis of this syndrome: a mosaic distribution of the lesions, a progressive course, and sporadic occurrence. When these criteria are met, the presence of additional connective tissue nevi, which are encountered mostly on the plantar surface of the feet, suffices for the diagnosis of Proteus syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy of benign diseases is controversial and rarely applied in Anglo-American countries, whereas in other parts of the world it is commonly practiced for several benign disorders. Similar to a European survey, a patterns of care study was conducted in Germany. METHOD: Using a mailed questionnaire, radiation equipment, treatment indication, number of patients, and treatment concepts were assessed in 1994, 1995, and 1996 in 134 of 152 German institutions (88%): 22 in East and 112 in West Germany; 30 in university hospitals and 104 in community hospitals...

Keloids of the plantar foot present a unique challenge to the surgical dermatologist. Many of the established regimens often fall short of their desired goals. Some of the obstacles to overcome include the repetitive nature of ambulation, the inability to primarily close the plantar foot, and the exquisite tendency for even fine suturing of skin grafts to form keloids. The use of excision, postoperative electron beam therapy, and secondary intention healing provides a useful approach in the management of plantar keloids...

OBJECTIVE: To review the principles of use, common techniques, and effectiveness of cryosurgery for common skin lesions that can be treated by family physicians in their offices. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: MEDLINE and the Cochrane Database controlled trials register (1998 version) were searched. Much of the evidence for the effectiveness of cryosurgery or cryotherapy is based on of cryosurgery for treating common warts, external genital warts, lentigines, and basal cell carcinomas...
