Augmented intelligence (AI), the combination of artificial based intelligence with human intelligence from a practitioner, has become an increased focus of clinical interest in the field of dermatology. Technological advancements have led to the development of deep-learning based models to accurately diagnose complex dermatological diseases such as melanoma in adult datasets. Models for pediatric dermatology remain scarce, but recent studies have shown applications in the diagnoses of facial infantile hemangiomas and X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia; however, we see unmet needs in other complex clinical scenarios and rare diseases, such as diagnosing squamous cell carcinoma in patients with epidermolysis bullosa...

Herein we describe the case of a Black adolescent who was found to have widely metastatic melanoma originating from a primary vulvar lesion. The lesion presented as a pink, vegetative nodule of the clitoral hood which grew in size over several years and was confirmed to be melanoma on shave biopsy. This patient's amelanotic presentation in conjunction with the rare incidence of vulvar melanoma contributed to the delay in diagnosis. This case exemplifies the challenge of early recognition of potentially malignant vulvar lesions for primary care providers in adolescents...

Intralesional injections of triamcinolone acetonide are widely used to successfully treat several inflammatory nail conditions. This procedure is well described in adults, but less frequently reported in children and teenagers, being largely considered too invasive and fear-provoking for pediatric patients. Our report shows how this procedure is feasible and successful in children, even without a digital block. The step-by-step technique and tips to reduce pain should encourage clinicians to offer it as an alternative option to children with inflammatory nail disorders...

Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is an important diagnosis to consider in patients with dermatitis following specific exposures. Classically, ACD from persulfates is associated with hair-bleaching products and spa water/swimming pool exposure and is most commonly reported in adult men. We report a case of ACD to potassium peroxymonopersulfate (PPMS), a common pool "shocking" chemical, in a 7-year-old boy presenting with recurrent and diffuse dermatitis triggered by swimming pool exposure.

There is limited information on the use of websites and social media platforms among dermatology patients. This survey study of 210 children with atopic dermatitis and their caretakers who attended dermatology clinic from 6/1/2020 through 5/1/2021 revealed that 83.8% had used online sources for information related to their condition. There was wide variation in the sources used and the participants' perceived trustworthiness of these. This study highlights the importance of physicians actively engaging with the online sources used by patients with atopic dermatitis and their caregivers during counseling in clinic...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The emergency department (ED) is a common point of care for many pediatric hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) patients; however, ED care may not align with recommended treatment standards. The objective of this study is to describe the care pediatric HS patients receive in the ED compared to both HS management guidelines and the management of pediatric skin and soft tissue abscess (SSTA) patients. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of pediatric HS and SSTA patients who presented to a single pediatric ED...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common and chronic inflammatory skin disease that can adversely affect quality of life and carry significant burdens on physical, emotional, and social health. Recent evidence suggests that AD may also impair cognition, including attention and memory. In a pilot study of six children with AD, we administered a comprehensive battery of assessments to evaluate cognition and behavior and found that this approach was feasible and practical, which will enable the conduct of future larger-scale studies to characterize the impact of AD on cognitive function...

Raynaud's phenomenon describes symptoms caused by digital vascular spasm and is classically induced by cold exposure. Severe cases can result in ulceration, necrosis, and digital autoamputation. When standard and adjunctive medical therapies fail or are contraindicated, botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) is an effective treatment option that can be added to existing regimens and should be considered before utilizing rescue therapies associated with higher risk and often higher cost. This report describes our technique, highlights considerations relevant to pediatric patients, and provides photos and videos of the procedure performed on a 16-year-old girl...

Patients who undergo solid organ transplantation are at an increased risk of developing atopic dermatitis, potentially due to long-term use of calcineurin inhibitors which results in a shift towards the Th2 immune response. The effectiveness and safety of dupilumab for atopic dermatitis in posttransplant patients is not established. Previous reports of dupilumab use in posttransplant patients have been in adult patients. In this series, we report three young posttransplant patients treated successfully with dupilumab...

Social media (SM) use has accelerated at an unprecedented pace and dermatology literature evaluating SM use is primarily centered on the quality and quantity of dermatologic content, with minimal research on how adolescent patients experience such content. We recruited 15 patients between the ages of 13-18 years from the Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Department of Dermatology to interview regarding their experience with dermatologic content on SM. Despite most participants' insightful comments on SM use and the relative lack of dermatologic content validation on SM, many participants adopted skin care advice from SM...

Topical corticosteroids (TCS) are the most commonly prescribed treatment for children with atopic dermatitis and are supported by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) atopic dermatitis treatment guidelines with level I strength A evidence; however, fear regarding their use, coined "steroid phobia," is widespread. In this study, we analyzed steroid phobia-related content on popular social media platforms. We found much of this content consists of patients describing negative personal experiences with TCS and subsequently discouraging viewer use...

BACKGROUND: Pigmentary mosaicism (PM) is a descriptive term encompassing a range of hyper- and hypo-pigmented phenotypes in various patterns. Information from the neurology literature initially noted neurological abnormalities (NA) in up to 90% of children with PM. The dermatology literature suggests lower associated rates (15%-30%) of NA. Variations in terminology, inclusion criteria, and small population sizes makes interpreting existing PM literature complicated. We aimed to assess rates of NA in children presenting to dermatology with PM...
