#1
Luis A Sardiña, Melissa Piliang, Wilma F Bergfeld
BACKGROUND: Proliferating tricholemmal tumor (PTT) is a rare neoplasm of controversial biological behavior for which distinction from other more common tumors is essential. Similarly, trichoblastoma (TB) remains a debatable entity that may represent a variation of basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Our goal is to correlate the staining pattern of calretinin and CD34 in these two follicular tumors vs. their major differential diagnoses, invasive squamous cell carcinoma (ISCC) and BCC. METHOD: Descriptive study of 68 cases: 6 PTT, 22 TB, 20 ISCC, and 20 BCC in a period of 15 years...

REVIEW
Annika Silfvast-Kaiser, Ronnie Youssef, So Y Paek
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, recurring, inflammatory skin disorder resulting in skin abscesses and sinus tracts of the skin folds. Hidradenitis suppurativa remains a disease with limited treatment options. Management of disease activity with dietary modification has been of considerable interest to the HS patient community. Limited evidence exists to support dietary changes for treatment of HS. Strategies such as eliminating dairy products, limiting simple carbohydrate and sugar intake, and avoiding nightshades (Solanaceae) and foods containing brewer's yeast have been reported to be helpful in some patients...

Melanonychia striata is characterized by a tan, brown, or black longitudinal streak within the nail plate that runs from the proximal nail fold to the distal part of the nail plate. Melanonychia striata is due to increased activity of melanocytes or melanocytic hyperplasia in the nail matrix with subsequently increased melanin deposition in the nail plate. The most common cause of melanonychia striata associated with melanocytic activation is ethnic melanonychia which occurs in dark-skinned individuals. Other causes of melanonychia striata related to melanocytic activation include pregnancy, chronic local trauma, infections, medications, dermatological disorders, endocrine disorders, alkaptonuria, hemochromatosis, porphyria, graft-vs-host disease, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, and Laugier-Hunziker syndrome...

Anthony K Guzman, Benjamin H Kaffenberger
BACKGROUND: Potassium hydroxide preparations (KOH) and tissue examinations for ova and parasites (O&P) are cost-effective office-based tests. No studies have quantified their utilization and economic impact. METHODS: The objective is to determine the billing patterns and costs of office-based diagnostic procedures in the Medicare population. We conducted a cross sectional study using the Part B National Summary Data File (2000-2016) and the Physician and Other Supplier Public Use File (2012-2015) released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services...

BACKGROUND: Venous lakes are asymptomatic, cosmetically unacceptable vascular malformations commonly present over the lips. Most of the lesions do not warrant any therapeutic intervention. OBJECTIVE: We herein report a 20-year-old male patient with venous lake who was treated using intralesional radiofrequency (RF) by modified insulated intravenous cannula as an extended probe. METHODS: An RF ablation was performed under local infiltration anesthesia using intravenous infusion cannula as an extended insulated probe to deliver current...

BACKGROUND: Drug survival is an important measure of successful treatment of patients with chronic diseases such as psoriasis. Therefore, the objective was to calculate drug survival and examine safety profile of biologics and immunomodulators (adalimumab, apremilast, etanercept, ixekizumab, infliximab, secukinumab, and ustekinumab) from the Slovenian National Registry of patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis. METHODS: Data about the patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis treated with biologics were collected from 2005 until July 2018...

INTRODUCTION: Giant basal cell carcinoma (GBCC) is a tumor ≥5 cm in size, with aggressive biological behavior, that represents 1% of basal cell carcinomas (BCC), and studies regarding it are scarce. Our objective was to investigate the clinical-histopathological characteristics of GBCC and the risk factors associated with its development. METHODS: A retrospective study over 8 years included patients with the clinical and histopathological diagnosis of GBCC. Age, sex, localization, size, evolution time, risk factors, and histological variants were compared to conventional BCC...

BACKGROUND: Previous wide local excision prior to sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) may have the potential to disrupt lymphatic channels, thus incorrectly identifying the sentinel node. The purpose of this study was to investigate: (1) regional recurrence rates of prior wide local excision compared to other biopsy techniques and (2) survival outcomes in patients with melanoma of the head and neck. METHODS: Between the years 2000 and 2016, 391 cases were reviewed with a median follow-up time of 30 months in a large tertiary care center...

BACKGROUND: Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) remains a prioritized neglected tropical disease. CL novel presentations call for updating its features. METHODS: A multiregional cohort of 396 patients with confirmed CL was reviewed. Lesion's clinical stage and eruption type were assigned. Disease was considered as extensive if numerous (≥5), large (>3 cm), disfiguring, threatening vital sensory organs, and/or older than 12 months. Microscopically, Ackerman's inflammatory pattern, Ridley's pattern (RP), and parasitic index (PI) were recorded...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans with fibrosarcomatous transformation (DFSP-FS) is a higher grade tumor arising from dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP). Recent literature highlights its impact on recurrence rates, metastatic rates, and survival. In this article, we aim to describe our experience with 13 cases of DFSP-FS in terms of pathologic findings, molecular alterations, clinical outcomes, management, and also perform a short recent literature review.

BACKGROUND: Changing the resources of vitamin D and antioxidant nutrients may affect the course of allergic diseases. The aim of the study was to investigate the association between CoQ10, vitamin D, retinol, and α-tocopherol serum levels and severity of atopic dermatitis (AD) in children. METHODS: Twenty-nine children with AD aged from 1 to 15 years were enrolled into the study. The severity of AD was categorized into mild or moderate (≤50 points in SCORAD - Scoring Atopic Dermatitis index) and severe (>50 SCORAD points)...
