Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease is a multisystem disorder characterized by bilateral granulomatous panuveitis resulting in serous retinal detachments, disk edema, and a sunset glow fundus development. Furthermore, it is associated with various extraocular findings, such as tinnitus, hearing loss, vertigo, poliosis, and vitiligo (1). VKH is considered to be an autoimmune disease mediated by T-cells targeting melanocyte antigen tyrosinase peptide (2). Moreover, VKH more often occurs in individuals with a genetic predisposition to the disease, including those of Asian and Hispanic heritage (3)...

Dear Editor, Ticks carry many diseases, bacteria, and viruses and represent a very important healthcare issue both in Croatia and globally. Although most ticks are not infected with pathogens dangerous to humans, some ticks can transmit infectious diseases with significant morbidity and mortality. This is caused by the increasing incidence of many tick-borne diseases over a growing geographical area. Many factors influence which species of ticks are present in a given geographical area, as well as the density of their population and the risk of human exposure to infected ticks...

Mycosis fugnoides (MF) is an indolent cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTLC) and is the most common of all cutaneous lymphomas. An increased risk for developing a second primary malignancy in patients with CTCL has been described in several studies, with a range from 1.04 to 2.4 (1-4). Caucasian males are at higher risk for MF development. MF is often diagnosed at ages between 55 and 67 years, and second malignancy usually occurs 5 or 6 years after the diagnosis of MF was established (5). The most common second primary malignancies include non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), lung carcinoma, bladder carcinoma, and melanoma...

While basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer in humans, its subepidermal presentation is extremely rare. The risk factors for basal cell carcinoma development are well-known, but it remains unclear in which setting the tumor restricts itself to the dermal compartment. We present the fifth known case of subepidermal basal cell carcinoma. However, this particular presentation is unique due to arising beneath a capillary malformation. The patient had previously undergone multiple laser treatments which yielded no success...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by painful inflammatory lesions, predominantly affecting areas of the skin rich in apocrine glands, such as inguinal, axillary, submammary, and anogenital regions, with an estimated global prevalence between 1%-4%. The treatment of HS is challenging with various treatment modalities employed to control the disease. Since the condition is chronic and life-impairing, many patients have looked for ways to complement their conventional treatment procedures with non-medical interventions, among which dietary interventions have been of particular interest...

BACKGROUND: Multifocal infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are focal cutaneous lesions affecting more than 1 anatomic site. The multifocal distribution pattern is the rarest form of IH manifestation, accounting for only 3-4% of all affected infants. This type of cutaneous IHs may be a marker for extracutaneous disease, with the liver being the most frequently affected organ. METHODS: We investigated the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of a small case series of infants with multifocal IHs presenting with different clinical patterns, all diagnosed and treated in a regional tertiary-care pediatric clinic...

Plasma cell mucositis (PCM) is an unusual disorder most evident in the accessible mucosa and usually reported in the upper aerodigestive tract, although it is named according to its specific anatomical site of involvement, such as plasma cell cheilitis, plasma cell gingivitis, plasma cell vulvitis, and Zoon's balanitis. PCM reflects a dense polyclonal, rather than a monoclonal, plasma cell proliferation of unclear and unknown etiology. This perplexing disorder tends to be treated by avoiding possible triggers and intralesional and/or systemic steroids...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of subcorneal hematoma (SH) can be challenging because the clinical presentation of SH can resemble melanocytic lesions. Few studies have examined the characteristic dermoscopic features of SH, but a more detailed large-scale study is needed to overcome the diagnostic challenge of differentiating it from acral melanoma. OBJECTIVES: To describe the dermoscopic features of SH. METHODS: We evaluated the clinical and dermoscopic features of 50 SH lesions from 43 patients at the Pusan National University Hospitals (Busan and Yangsan)...

INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are rare diseases characterized by infiltration of malignant T-cells into the skin. We evaluated the prevalence, epidemiology, and therapy of CTCLs, focusing on its most well-known subtypes, namely mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the medical data of patients with a histologically confirmed diagnosis of CTCL presenting to our outpatient department during a 5-year period from January 2015 to December 2019...

BACKGROUND: Pemphigus diseases are a subgroup of autoimmune bullous diseases characterized by autoantibodies against desmogleins and occasionally desmocollins. Desmocollin 3 is the main desmocollin isoform that contributes to cell adhesion in the epidermis. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the presence and level of anti-desmocollin 3 antibodies in pemphigus diseases, and to investigate whether their presence is associated with a specific type, presentation, or clinical pattern...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used in medicine as a source of autologous growth factors in different indications. At present, PRP is applied increasingly frequently in aesthetic medicine with the aim of skin revitalization. Until now, the mechanisms of PRP effects in healthy human skin treated with aesthetic goals have not been identified in detail. This study aimed to examine PRP effects on the synthesis of procollagen type I in human skin. This study was a prospective, single-center, single-dose, open-label, non-randomized controlled clinical study...

Data on switching between agents in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) are scarce (1-3). We report the case of a patient with severe AD and inadequate response to upadacitinib who showed a complete response after switching to abrocitinib. A 23-year-old male patient with severe AD was enrolled in the Measure Up double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 3 randomized clinical trial. At baseline, the Eczema Area Severity Index (EASI) was 50.6, the Investigator's Global Assessment (IGA) was 4, the affected Body Surface Area (BSA) was 80%, and the Worst Pruritus-Numeric Rating Scale (WP-NRS) was 10/10 (Figure 1)...

Spitz tumors are a subset of melanocytic neoplasms characterized by epithelioid or spindled melanocytes(1). The benign nature of the "Spitz nevus" has since been clarified, but the debate regarding Spitzoidtumors (STs) is still ongoing. Spitzoid tumors encompass a wide spectrum of cutaneous lesions ranging from benign Spitz nevus (SN) to Spitzoid melanoma (SM), the latter displaying capacity for widespread metastasis and a potentially lethal outcome (2). The term atypical Spitz tumors (ASTs) refers to melanocytic tumors exhibiting the morphological features of SN, as well as some features associated with malignancy, but not sufficient to classify them as SMs...

A 39-year-old Caucasian woman affected by Noonan Syndrome (NS) mutated in RAF1 was referred to us with itchy lesions on her limbs that had appeared two months earlier. Clinically, there were multiple umbilicated papules with a hyperkeratotic central plug, localized on the upper and lower limbs (Figure 1, a-b). The patient had no personal history of diabetes mellitus or chronic renal failure, but suffered from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Blood tests showed no abnormalities. On histological examination of a skin lesion, an ectatic hair follicle with a hyperkeratotic ostium was observed with fragments of hair, inflammatory cells, and epidermal perforation...

In 1980, Hanifin and Rajka (1) proposed major and minor diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis (AD). Major associations included pruritus, dry skin, and history of atopy. One minor feature included Dennie-Morgan Folds (DMFs), which manifest as secondary creases in the skin underneath the inferior eyelid, usually found in infants (2). In an attempt to refine these criteria, a study evaluating 210 patients with an existing AD diagnosis observed DMF in 84% of AD cases. A pediatric study in Bijapur, India on 174 children under 16 years of age with AD identified DMF to be the most prevalent minor criterion...

The mortality risk factors for Corona Virus Disease-19 (COVID-19) infection (caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2)) include advanced age, male sex, certain comorbidities, and immunosuppression (1). Pemphigus vulgaris is a rare mucocutaneous autoimmune disease with autoantibodies against desmosomal desmoglein-1 and desmoglein-3, resulting in acantholysis and blister formation. This epithelial barrier defect increases susceptibility to infections, which may lead to relapses (2)...

Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare and highly aggressive primary cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma most often occurring in the elderly. Risk factors include chronic sun exposure and immunosuppression (1). MCC is associated with frequent recurrences and a high metastatic potential and mortality rate (1). It is the second most common cause of skin-cancer-related death after melanoma. At primary diagnosis with an apparent cutaneous tumor, loco-regional metastases are present in up to 30% of patients, and 6-12% have distant metastatic disease (2-3)...

A 38-year-old Hispanic man without comorbidities presented to our dermatology clinic for the evaluation of an asymptomatic dark macule on his left hand, which had gradually grown since he was a child. The hyperpigmentation involved the dorsum and palm (Figure 1). The patient was right-handed and denied previous trauma, inflammation, occupational exposure to chemicals, or using any medications. During physical examination, no other similar pigmentation was found on the rest of his body. An incisional biopsy of the left palm was performed (Figure 2)...

Neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands (NDDH) is a localized variant of Sweet's syndrome which has been recently introduced. Strutton et al.in 1996 and then in Galaria et al. in 2000 reported cases with violaceous papulonodules on the dorsal surfaces of the hands with histopathological findings of a neutrophilic dermatosis in association with leukocytoclasia, but clinically and histologically without true vasculitis findings. Eventually, they proposed the term NDDH for these lesions (1,2). A 46-year-old man was referred to our outpatient dermatology clinic with a painful ulcerative lesion on the dorsal side of the left hand that had been present for one year...

Muir-Torre syndrome (MST) is a rare autosomal dominant subtype of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal carcinoma. The diagnosis is established based on the coexistence of sebaceous gland tumors and visceral organ malignancies. Mutations in the mismatch repair genes are responsible for Muir-Torre syndrome. Internal malignancies seen in MTS are most commonly colorectal, gastrointestinal system, endometrial, genitourinary system, breast, lung, brain, and hepatobiliary system malignancies. Detection of sebaceous neoplasia is essential in investigating Muir-Torre syndrome, allowing early detection of internal malignancies...
