Importance: Perineural invasion (PNI) in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) has been associated with an increased risk of poor outcomes. Patients with PNI may present with clinical symptoms and/or radiologic evidence of PNI (clinical PNI [CPNI]), yet most patients are asymptomatic and PNI is often found on histologic examination (incidental PNI [IPNI]). Evidence-based estimates of the risks of disease-related outcomes comparing IPNI and CPNI are limited in the dermatology literature...

PURPOSE: The Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) and the European Quality of Life-5 Dimension (EQ-5D) are separate measures that may be used to gather health-related quality of life (HRQoL) information from patients. The EQ-5D is a generic measure from which health utility estimates can be derived, whereas the DLQI is a specialty-specific measure to assess HRQoL. To reduce the burden of multiple measures being administered and to enable a more disease-specific calculation of health utility estimates, we explored an established mathematical technique known as ordinal logistic regression (OLR) to develop an appropriate model to map DLQI data to EQ-5D-based health utility estimates...

Skin damage induced by UVR is an escalating problem in dermatology, and increasing incidence of skin cancer, especially for non-melanoma skin cancer, has been reported worldwide. UVR from sun exposure and the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is known to be a pivotal factor in the aetiology of skin cancer. The pineal hormone melatonin is recognized as the most potent endogenous antioxidant. Melatonin conducts its antioxidant effects acting directly as a radical scavenger and indirectly by up regulation of antioxidant enzymes...

Long-term utilization of immunosuppression in organ transplant recipients (OTRs) leads to decreased immune-mediated tumor surveillance and development of malignant tumors. A delicate balance needs to be maintained in the intensity of immunosuppression to keep the risk of malignancy low without jeopardizing life-saving graft function. OTRs are prone to developing skin cancers which exhibit unique epidemiologic, pathophysiologic and prognostic characteristics. In this review, we discuss the most commonly reported skin cancers in OTRs: squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), basal cell carcinoma (BCC), Kaposi's sarcoma, Merkel cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma (MM)...

Actinic keratosis (AK) is a common dermatologic condition in which hyperplastic epidermal lesions develop in response to excessive and chronic exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. If left untreated, AK can progress to squamous cell carcinomas of the skin. Incidence is rising worldwide as a result of the progressive aging of populations and an increase in lifetime cumulative exposure to UV radiation. Currently, various treatment options exist, which range from topical medications to light-based therapies and procedural modalities...

Skin disease occur worldwide, affecting people of all nationalities and all skin types. These diseases may have a genetic component and may manifest differently in specific population groups; however, there has been little study on this aspect. If population-based differences exist, it is reasonable to assume that understanding these differences may optimize treatment. While there is a relative paucity of information about similarities and differences in skin diseases around the world, the knowledge-base is expanding...

Photo-induced aging is a natural part of the aging process, but represents a common complaint of both medical and cosmetic dermatology patients. There are many photonumeric grading scales used to assess photo-induced aging, including several based on ethnicity (Caucasians, Asians), and cosmetic units of the face (1), however those specifically validated for older men are lacking. Current photonumeric scales were created using predominantly female subjects age 45 and younger (2-4). Our study sought to evaluate the inter-rater reliability of commonly used photonumeric grading scales in a population of elderly male subjects...
