Karishma Desai, Marc Philip Frey, Jerry Tan
BACKGROUND: Acne grading is an essential component in establishing treatment options, but little is known on how neck acne should be incorporated into grading scales. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to explore the prevalence of neck acne and determine if its own severity category on an acne global grading scale was warranted. METHODS: Acne severity was assessed in 6 categories: face, chest, back, anterior upper (AUN), anterior lower neck (ALN), and posterior neck (PN)...

Sarah Baldwin, Sheila Au
The Skin Cancer Post-Transplant (SCREEN) Clinic is a skin-cancer screening clinic that is fully integrated into the renal transplantation clinic at St Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia. The purpose of this review was to determine characteristics of patients most at risk for skin cancer, to specify types and locations of skin cancers diagnosed, and to identify areas for patient and physician education. Transplant patients (91% renal; 5% heart) screened by a dermatologist during a 12-month period were stratified into low-, medium-, and high-risk groups based on detailed history and skin examination...

BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, pruritic inflammatory skin disease resulting from defects in skin barrier and aberrant immune responses. AD significantly affects the quality of life. Not all patients respond to topical therapies, and often systemic therapy is required to control the disease. OBJECTIVE: To review the treatment options for adult AD patients including those options for patients who do not respond adequately or have contraindications to oral systemic therapy...

#347
Jean-Philip Lacroix, Beatrice Wang
BACKGROUND: Dabrafenib, a novel selective small-molecule inhibitor of BRAF, has been shown to increase overall survival in patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma harboring the BRAF V600E mutation. The development of resistance has led to combination therapy with selective MEK inhibitor trametinib. Compared with vemurafenib, dabrafenib is a more recent BRAF inhibitor approved by the Food and Drug Administration in May 2013 for metastatic melanoma; fewer data are available in the current literature regarding cutaneous toxicity...

Cutaneous reactions to tattoos are well reported and include allergic reactions, infections, and foreign body granuloma or may be a presenting sign of sarcoidosis. There have been very few reported cases of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) arising in tattoo-treated skin. We report a case of SCC arising within a red-ink tattoo and discuss the potential the role of chronic low-grade inflammation in pathogenesis. This should serve to raise awareness of potential tattoo-related serious adverse effects.

#349
Allison K Cinats, Richard M Haber
Autoimmune hepatitis is a subtle diagnosis that has many diverse clinical presentations. It has been reported in the literature to occur concomitantly with pyoderma gangrenosum, a neutrophilic dermatosis. Sweet's syndrome is another neutrophilic dermatosis and has been reported to be associated with autoimmune hepatitis in only 2 previous cases: 1 idiopathic and 1 drug induced. Here we report a third case in a 24-year-old woman diagnosed with Sweet's syndrome in association with autoimmune hepatitis, documenting a possible trend between neutrophilic dermatoses and autoimmune hepatitis...

#350
REVIEW
Mathew N Nicholas, Jensen Yeung
Chronic wounds, including diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, and arterial insufficiency ulcers, are both difficult and expensive to treat. Conventional wound care may sometimes lead to suboptimal wound healing and significant morbidity and mortality for patients. The use of skin substitutes provides an alternative therapy showing superior efficacy and, in some cases, similar cost-effectiveness compared to traditional treatments. This review discusses the different types of currently available commercial skin substitutes for use in chronic wounds as well as the paucity of strong evidence supporting their use...

Lukas Kofler, Markus Wambacher, Katrin Schweinzer, Maritta Scherl, Heinz Kofler
Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is a thermoplastic polymer frequently used in engineering but also in medical devices. Only 1 case of allergic reaction to PEEK used as an implanted medical device has been reported so far; however, the route of sensitization remained unclear. Here we report on a 62-year-old male patient with a preknown, severe type IV allergy to epoxy resin. He reported strong pain in his shoulder after implantation of a PEEK-containing device after a rotator cuff injury. For testing, the device was implanted in a small pouch subcutaneously on the abdomen...

BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cutaneous malignancy. Terminal hair is not routinely removed for assessment of BCCs on the scalp and yet may obscure the true size of scalp BCCs. This can compromise effective management. OBJECTIVE: To underscore the importance of removing terminal hair on the scalp for an accurate assessment of clinical margins of BCC on the scalp. METHODS: We report 2 cases of cutaneous BCC arising on the scalp...

#354
REVIEW
Malika Ladha, Adrian Wagg, Marlene Dytoc
Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) is a condition often encountered by dermatologists. IAD is an inflammatory skin condition secondary to prolonged urine exposure-it is a dermatologic sequela of urinary incontinence. Incontinence should not be dismissed simply as an age-related disorder; rather, it is due to a number of pathologic conditions that can be either reversible or manageable. It is thus critical to identify and treat the underlying causes of urinary incontinence. Clinical management of this common medical issue restores normality to patients' lives while also preventing future dermatologic complications...

#355
Amin Maghari
BACKGROUND: Dysplastic nevi (DN) are graded by their degree of atypia into 3 categories of mild, moderate, and severe. In many practices, DN with moderate or severe atypia are generally excised regardless of the status of the shave specimen margins. OBJECTIVE: With a new approach toward the margins on the shave removal specimens (SRS), the goal herein is to assess whether the shave removal procedure can sufficiently remove DN with moderate or severe atypia. METHODS: A total of 426 SRS diagnosed with DN showing moderate or severe atypia between January and December 2015 along with their post-shave excision specimens were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, recurrent inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous follicle that severely affects patients' quality of life and can be challenging for clinicians to manage. A few case series have reported on the efficacy of acitretin monotherapy in the treatment of intractable HS. OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of acitretin for the treatment of intractable HS. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted involving all patients with HS who received acitretin between January 2011 and January 2015 in a tertiary academic medical center...

#357
Rob Bobotsis, Lyn Guenther
Mohs surgery is considered ideal treatment for many types of skin cancers. Developed by Dr Frederic Edward Mohs (1910-2002), Mohs surgery allows all surgical margins to be viewed microscopically, ensuring no cancer cells go unremoved, yet it failed to achieve immediate acceptance when first introduced in the 1940s. A catalyst to the widespread acceptance of Mohs surgery occurred with the work of dermatologic colleagues who reported excellent results without using the paste. It suggested the real innovation of Mohs surgery lay in its microscopic control and not the paste, the discontinuation of which removed all the problems associated with its use...
