We reviewed 200 patient records from 2009 to 2015 of individuals who presented at the authors offices for facial wrinkle reduction and who on physical examination had rhytides, peau d'orange, or thin dermis and underwent novel adipose slurry injections. The patients were evaluated at week 2, 1, 3 and 6 months revealing an 80, 60 and 40% improvement in rhytides and dermis density, respectively. We present the protocol and description of a reasonable alternative or adjunct to manufactured fillers that is comprised of autologous adipose, stem cells, and growth factor slurry...

A 41-year-old male with pseudoxanthoma elasticum who presented with progressive vision loss in his left periphery is discussed. Bilateral angioid streaks, optic disc drusen, choroidal neovascularization, and peau d'orange were present. Imaging of the area with peau d'orange with adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and en face optical coherence tomography at Bruch's membrane (BM) revealed a pattern identical to the patches of peau d'orange visible with conventional fundus imaging techniques. These results show that structural abnormalities at the level of BM, likely a result of calcification, correlate with the characteristic "orange peel" pattern known as peau d'orange...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a rare, aggressive breast cancer diagnosed clinically by the presence of diffuse erythema, peau d'orange, and edema that arise quickly in the affected breast. This study evaluated the validity of medical records in Gharbiah, Egypt in identifying clinical signs/symptoms of IBC. For 34 IBC cases enrolled in a case-control study at the Gharbiah Cancer Society and Tanta Cancer Center, Egypt (2009-2010), we compared signs/symptoms of IBC noted in medical records to those recorded on a standardized form at the time of IBC diagnosis by clinicians participating in the case-control study...

The diagnosis of adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) can be very difficult. There are no specific tests available, and diagnosis is usually based on a symptom complex and the well-described typical evanescent rash seen in the majority of patients. However, in recent years, other atypical cutaneous manifestations of AOSD have been reported. These atypical skin eruptions often present in addition to the typical evanescent rash but may also be the only skin manifestation, resulting in delayed diagnosis because of under-recognition...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is an inherited and systemic metabolic disorder that affects the skin, leading among other things to a peau d'orange appearance. Unfortunately, PXE is still poorly understood and there is no existing therapy to treat the disease. Because the skin is the first organ to be affected in PXE, we propose herein a study of skin microvascular perfusion. By means of this analysis, our goal is to increase knowledge of PXE. METHODS: For this purpose, microvascular data from patients suffering from PXE and from healthy control subjects were recorded using the laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI) modality...

Occupational and recreational aquatic activity predisposes our population to a wide variety of dermatoses. Sunburn, urticaria, jellyfish stings, and contact dermatitis to rubber equipment are common allergies that are encountered in the aquatic environment. Among the infections, tinea versicolor, intertrigo, and verruca vulgaris are widespread. Swimmer's itch may occur due to skin penetration by schistosome cercariae, while free-floating nematocysts of marine coelenterates may precipitate seabather's eruption...

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a genetic multisystemic disorder affecting the skin, eyes and cardiovascular system. Basic fundoscopic findings in PXE result from Bruch's membrane involvement. The most important fundoscopic findings are angioid streaks. Other significant ocular findings are peau d'orange appearance, optic disc drusen, pattern dystrophy-like macular appearance, comet lesions, and choroidal neovascularization. Comet lesions are a pathognomonic ocular finding for PXE. The presence of both angioid streaks in the fundus and typical skin lesions should alert clinicians to PXE...

A 52-year-old woman presented with redness and swelling with a peau d'orange appearance in the whole right breast. Ultrasound revealed elevated subcutaneus fat density and a diffuse hypoechoic area. She was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer(T4dN2M0, Stage III B of the HER2 subtype). After 4 courses of EC treatment as primary systemic therapy, the hypoechoic area was still present. Subsequent chemotherapy with pertuzumab, trastuzumab, and docetaxel was effective, as hypoechoic area was not observed on ultrasound...

A 67-year-old woman with a history of lung adenocarcinoma presented with 3 weeks of redness, pain, swelling and skin changes in her right breast. Her vital signs and physical examination were within physiological limits except for the right breast. She had extensive red streaks radiating from the right nipple with peau d'orange appearance of her overlying skin. Her breast was tender on examination and did not have any associated cervical or axillary lymphadenopathy. Her mammography revealed thickening of the skin, increased parenchymal markings and shrinkage the breast...

BACKGROUND: Screening clinical breast examination (cbe) is controversial; the use of cbe is declining not only as a screening tool, but also as a diagnostic tool. In the present study, we aimed to assess the value of cbe in breast cancer detection in a tertiary care centre for breast diseases. METHODS: This retrospective study of all breast cancers diagnosed between July 1999 and December 2010 at our centre categorized cases according to the mean of detection (cbe, mammography, or both)...

Connective tissue nevi (CTN) are dermal hamartomas characterized by an imbalance in the amount and distribution of the normal components of the extracellular dermal matrix, specifically collagen, elastin, and/or proteoglicans. The term "CTN" was first mentioned by Lewandowsky in 1921 (1), although it was not accepted until the review by Gutmann in 1926 (2). Classification of CTN was established by Uitto et al. (3) in 1980 according to clinical, genetic, and histopathological features. But this classification did not include zosteriform nevi...

BACKGROUND: Beta-thalassemia is a severe genetic blood disorder caused by a mutation in the gene encoding for the beta chains of hemoglobin. Individuals with beta-thalassemia major require regular lifelong Red Blood Cell transfusions to survive. Ocular involvement is quite common and may have serious implications. METHODS: Extensive review of observational studies on beta-thalassemia, to determine the prevalence and spectrum of ocular abnormalities, by clinical examination and multimodal imaging, and to investigate risk factors for their development...

Background. Gestational gigantomastia is a rare disorder without clear etiology or well-established risk factors. Several pathogenic mechanisms contributing to the disease process have been proposed, all of which can lead to a similar phenotype of breast hypertrophy. Case. A 28-year-old Guinean woman presented at 37 weeks of gestation with bilateral gigantomastia, mastalgia, peau d'orange, and back pain. Prolactin levels were 103.3 μg/L (with a normal reference value for prolactin in pregnancy being 36-372 μg/L)...
