Jennifer N Harb, Alexandra L Owens, Kathryn Mooneyham Potter, Michael Montuno, Reordan O De Jesus, Sailesh Konda
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is the most common skin cancer diagnosed in African Americans.<sup>1</sup> Twenty to forty percent of cSCCs reported in African Americans are related to chronic scarring processes or areas of in ammation.<sup>2</sup> Risk factors for developing cSCCs in patients of color include chronic scars resulting from burns, skin ulcers, and radiation sites; and chronic inflammatory diseases such as discoid lupus and hidradenitis suppuritiva.<sup>1</sup> Although skin cancer only accounts for 1% to 2% of cancers diagnosed within African Americans, it is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in this population...

BACKGROUND: The major blood supply of the latissimus dorsi muscle flap is based on the descending and tranverse branches of the thoracodorsal artery. This segmental blood supply allows the muscle to be split and harvested based solely on vascularization from the descending branch, thus sparing the latissimus dorsi muscle function. This article reports the use of the descending branch muscle-sparing latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap in reconstructing defects on the trunk and upper extremities...

BACKGROUND: Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) is a proinflammatory cytokine that plays an immunomodulatory role in a variety of systemic and dermatologic diseases. Currently, three anti-TNF-a drugs are available in North America- infliximab (approved in the U.S. for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, ankylosing spondylitis, ulcerative colitis, and psoriatic arthritis), etanercept (approved in the U.S. for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriasis), and adalimumab (approved for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis)...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppuritiva, a disease of the apocrine sweat glands, has always been a challenging area to the plastic and reconstructive surgeon. The aetiology is idiopathic and medical treatment offers temporary relief only. Radical surgical excision, therefore, is the mainstay of active management. AIM: To present and evaluate a series of 106 patients of hidradenitis suppuritiva treated in the regional plastic surgery unit of southeast Scotland between January 1990 and December 2000...

The distribution, size and density of the apocrine glands in hidradenitis suppuritiva as compared with those in axillary hyperhidrosis and normal controls have been studied. There are no significant differences in the size or density of the apocrine glands in hidradenitis suppuritiva as compared with normal controls. The apocrine glands in axillary hyperhidrosis are significantly larger than those in axillary hidradenitis and in normal controls. A simple method that can be used to demonstrate the distribution of the apocrine glands preoperatively is described...
