We describe a rare case of a 77-year-old woman with radiation-induced breast angiosarcoma (RIAS) in whom radical surgery with negative margins determined that at 14-month of follow-up there is no evidence of either local or systemic recurrence without having to resort to adjuvant chemotherapy.

Eye-tracking technology was used to assess aesthetic surgical outcomes in transgender and gender diverse patients who are assigned female at birth and who seek gender affirming chest surgery. Post-surgery, observers focused more on scars than on the nipple-areolar complex. Ratings for similarity to cis-male chests significantly increased. This series highlights the objective evaluation of visual perception and masculinity assessments using eye-tracking.

Our case demonstrates a rare genesis of complex scalp defect with exposed dura mater in the occipital region due to self-mutilation. An early interdisciplinary approach is vital to prevent secondary complications and potentially fatal outcomes, particularly in psychiatric patients with reduced health awareness.

In the early 2000s, medical devices based on acellular matrices multiplied in number. Nowadays, the use of porcine ADMs is to be considered a well-established technology, commonly applied in different surgical specialties. In this retrospective analysis of 110 cases, the use of non-crosslinked porcine ADM EGIS® results a safe and effective tool in many procedures and specialties.

Calciphylaxis is characterized by extremely painful skin ulcers and develops in patients with or without severe kidney diseases. Herein, a female patient without renal dysfunction developed calciphylaxis in the right lower extremity and underwent successful surgical debridement and split-thickness skin grafting. Nevertheless, prompt wound evaluation and proper surgical approaches are essential.

We report the case of a forest ranger who developed a polymicrobial infection with Mucor circinelloides after traumatic forearm amputation. Based on our case report we discuss epidemiology and management of this rare and potentially fatal infection.

Hemangioendothelioma is a malignant vascular tumor, according to ISSVA classification of vascular tumors. This patient presented an epithelioid hemangioendothelioma; this type of tumor can exhibit significant local destruction, sometimes requiring limb amputation. With deferred Mohs micrographic surgery and reconstructive surgery with multiple conventional and microsurgical techniques, partial or total amputation of the hand was avoided.

The correct reconstructive technique following dermoid cyst removal is critical for treatment and aesthetics. This article will discuss the management of nasal dermoid sinus cysts. A mixture of "Turkish-delight" crushed cartilage with Fibrin-based tissue adhesives and non-crushed septal cartilage was used for the primary reconstruction of the nasal dorsum.

We report the case of a HIV-seronegative 57 year-old man, with known classic Kaposi's disease and in whom a secondary localization in the upper left limb led to carpal and metacarpal lysis in the left hand. This unfavorable local evolution led to left transhumeral amputation.

Schwannoma can rarely mimic an intraneural ganglion cyst clinically and radiographically. This is a rare case report of a wrist schwannoma mimicking an intraneural ganglion cyst. The surgery was successful, and the histopathological report confirmed the diagnosis of benign schwannoma. After two years of follow-up, the patient is still symptom-free.

Free tissue flap transfer can be utilized for reconstruction following tumor resection. While flap failure occurs primarily within 72 h post-operation, late failure after day 7 is rare. We present the case of a 14-year-old with a late lower extremity free flap vascular compromise, along with the successful flap salvage.

The right nasal ala had been destroyed and was diagnosed as morpheaform basal cell carcinoma associated with multiple familial trichoepithelioma (Brooke-Spiegler syndrome). After extended resection, the right buccal and nasal ala defect was reconstructed with a flow-through type anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap, which achieved good functional and cosmetic results.

A 3-year-old patient sustained a tripartite mandibular fracture, including bilateral condylar fractures with lateral dislocation of the left condyle and symphyseal fracture. Staged lower jaw reconstruction with closed reduction of the laterally dislocated condyle, transfacial pinning between the mandibular angles, MMF using circummandibular wiring and intermaxillary fixation screws was performed.

We discuss the case of a 42-year-old woman who presented with severe left cubital tunnel neuropathic pain and subsequently developed a vesicular rash spanning the C8-T1 dermatomal distribution. These symptoms resolved after initiation of acyclovir, highlighting VZV brachial plexopathy as a potentially treatable etiology of acute onset severe neuropathic pain.

We report a 60-year-old patient who underwent bilateral mastectomy at different times, followed by immediate autologous reconstruction with different flaps: deep-inferior epigastric-perforator flap on one breast, and fat-augmented latissimus dorsi on the contralateral side. At 20-month follow-up, good symmetry was recorded; patient-reported outcome measurements revealed high satisfaction scores.
