Shayne D Reitmeier, Brent Schacter, Marni C Wiseman
BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common nonmelanoma skin cancer. There is a clear association between BCC development and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP) is an inherited porphyria disorder that is a result of protoporphyrin accumulation, typically manifesting with phototoxicity. CASE SUMMARY: We report a case of a 24 year-old man with both EPP and BCC diagnoses. At the age of 4 years, the patient was diagnosed with EPP...

BACKGROUND: Friction blisters on the hand are challenging to treat as conventional dressings are prone to saturation, contamination, and loosening with active hand use and other mechanical stresses. Alternative methods and materials for dressing hand blisters warrant exploration. CASE SUMMARY: A 48-year-old male surgeon presented with friction blisters over his bilateral thumbs. The patient complained of significant difficulty in keeping his dressings clean and dry, significant pain with hand hygiene, and functional limitations at work...

BACKGROUND: A practical and up-to-date consensus among experts is paramount to further improve patient care in actinic keratosis (AK). OBJECTIVES: To develop a structured consensus statement on the diagnosis, classification, and practical management of AK based on up-to-date information. METHODS: A systematic review of AK clinical guidelines was conducted. This informed the preparation of a 3-round Delphi procedure followed by a consensus meeting, which combined the opinions of 16 clinical experts from 13 countries, to construct a structured consensus statement and a treatment algorithm positioning daylight photodynamic therapy (dl-PDT) among other AK treatment options...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the current knowledge children possess on melanoma and sun-protective behaviour. METHODS: A one-page survey was administered to students in grades 5, 7, and 9. RESULTS: Three hundred ninety-two students from 11 schools in Edmonton were surveyed. Seventy-one percent of students knew that sun exposure can cause skin cancers. Sixty-nine percent were taught by their parents about sun protection, but only 44% of students received similar instructions from teachers...

#348
REVIEW
Erin Maguire, Alison Spurr
Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) poses a major risk for outdoor workers, putting them at greater risk for skin cancer. In the general population, the incidence of both melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers is increasing. It is estimated that 90% of skin cancers in Canada are directly attributable to UVR exposure, making this cancer largely preventable with the appropriate precautions. A scoping review was conducted on the barriers and facilitators to UVR safety in outdoor workers to elucidate why these precautions are not in use currently...

BACKGROUND: Onychomycosis is a cosmetic and, at times, medical concern; therefore, effective and safe alternatives to treatment are needed. OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of a 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser for the treatment of onychomycosis in a real-world setting. METHODS: A single-centre retrospective chart review was conducted between 2012 and 2013. One hundred consecutive patients with a culture- and/or potassium hydroxide-confirmed diagnosis of onychomycosis were treated at least twice...

Julia N Mayba, Melinda J Gooderham
BACKGROUND: Clinical trial data have shown apremilast, an oral phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor, to be efficacious and safe for the treatment of psoriasis. However, little real-world experience using apremilast in the community setting has been documented. OBJECTIVES: Many patients with psoriasis are often unresponsive to various treatment modalities, including topical, systemic, and biologic medications. The aim of this chart review was to assess the overall patient experience while using apremilast to treat psoriasis...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic skin disorder with adverse impacts on both physical and psychosocial well-being. There is presently no validated HS-specific quality-of-life (QoL) measure. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to develop a QoL instrument for HS (HS-QoL) in accordance with recommended standards. METHODS: Patient interviews (concept elicitation) and expert input were used to develop the conceptual framework for outcomes perceived important to patients with HS...

REVIEW

Many studies that have been recently published investigate the efficacy of laser treatment for onychomycosis. These studies support the current US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of lasers for the 'temporary increase in clear nail'. Clear nail growth is an important treatment goal for patients; however, many do not realise that laser treatment is not a cure for onychomycosis. The current article briefly reviews why lasers may be theoretically effective in treating onychomycosis and critically reviews published laser studies for onychomycosis in light of the standards employed in drug trials...

Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a highly aggressive cutaneous neuroendocrine tumour that is increasing in incidence. We report a case of a 92-year-old white man on long-term immunosuppression for temporal arteritis who presented with a Merkel cell tumour on his left cheek. A wide local excision was performed and the defect was reconstructed with a full-thickness skin graft. Four years later, the patient re-presented with a Merkel cell tumour arising from the right supraclavicular donor site. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a recurrence of MCC into a donor site...

#357
María Librada Porriño-Bustamante, José Aneiros-Fernández, Juan Antonio Retámero, María Antonia Fernández-Pugnaire
Hobnail hemangioma, also known as targetoid hemosiderotic hemangioma, is an uncommon vascular proliferation that clinically presents as a small solitary red to purple papule or macule, located on the limbs or trunk. Multiple lesions and atypical locations have been described. Histopathologically, it exhibits a biphasic pattern, with dilated vessels in the superficial dermis and angulated vessels in the deeper dermis, with endothelial cells that show a hobnail appearance. There is controversy about the histogenetic origin of hobnail hemangioma, although recent studies support that it is a lymphatic malformation...

REVIEW
Connie Zhang, Richard M Haber
Perineal streptococcal dermatitis (PSD) is largely known to be caused by group A β-hemolytic Streptococcus (GAS). We would like to bring cases of non-GAS PSD to the attention of dermatologists, as there are implications for workup and therapy. We report 3 pediatric cases of PSD: 1 caused by GAS, 1 caused by group B β-hemolytic Streptococcus (GBS), and 1 associated with group C β-hemolytic Streptococcus (GCS). GBS and GCS are very rarely reported in pediatric cases of PSD. The literature on non-GAS PSD is reviewed, which additionally revealed several instances of PSD caused by group G β-hemolytic Streptococcus (GGS) and Staphylococcus aureus...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting skin sites with a high density of apocrine glands. HS commonly presents after puberty, with most patients diagnosed in the second decade of their life. Several studies have investigated smoking, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia as possible underlying risk factors for HS. However, we encountered 2 patients with a long-standing history of untreated leukemia who developed late-onset HS...

BACKGROUND: Calciphylaxis is a rare disorder that is very unusual outside the setting of end-stage kidney disease. CASE SUMMARY: A 64-year-old woman with normal renal function presented with painful leg ulcers. She had previously received 300 000 IU of vitamin D3 followed by daily calcium and vitamin D3 supplementation. A skin biopsy was consistent with calciphylaxis, and she was treated with sodium thiosulphate infusions and wound debridement. CONCLUSION: Calcium and vitamin D3 supplements are widely prescribed...
