We established 3 classes of severity depending on the treatment prescribed. Read More

    Impact on Quality of Life in Dermatology Patients Attending an Emergency Department.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Oct 28. Epub 2017 Oct 28.
    Dermatology Service, Ramon y Cajal Hospital, Madrid, Spain.
    Introduction: Dermatological complaints have been estimated to represent up to 5-10% of all the visits to emergency departments. The main objective of our study was to determine how affected is the Health related Quality of Life (HRQL) in a series of patients attending an emergency department due to skin symptoms.

    Patients And Methods: A prospective study during one month (July 2016) was conducted in a hospital with full-time on-call dermatologists. Read More

    Allergic Contact Dermatitis Caused by Acrylates in Long-Lasting Nail Polish.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Nov 3. Epub 2017 Nov 3.
    Hospital General de Alicante, Alicante, España.
    The first reported cases of allergic contact dermatitis from acrylates in manicure procedures in relation to the application of porcelain nails were published decades ago. The frequency of sensitization has increased due to the introduction of the so-called permanent nail polish containing photo-bonded acrylates, mainly involving the beauticians who apply them, and to a lesser extent, the consumers. The recent commercialized permanent polish kits for domestic use could trigger even higher degrees of sensitization. Read More

    Iso-Kikuchi Syndrome: Report of 3 Pediatric Cases.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Nov 1. Epub 2017 Nov 1.
    Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Alemán, Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    Iso-Kikuchi syndrome, or congenital onychodysplasia of the index finger, is an uncommon condition characterized by total anonychia or dysplasia of the nail of the index finger. It is occasionally accompanied by underlying bone abnormalities and is rarely associated with other conditions. Although various hypotheses have been put forward to explain the pathophysiology of the syndrome, its etiology remains unknown. Read More

    Clinical and Histopathologic Findings of Cutaneous Leiomyosarcoma: Correlation with Prognosis in 12 Patients.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Oct 31. Epub 2017 Oct 31.
    Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Madrid, España.
    Introduction: Cutaneous leiomyosarcoma is a malignant neoplasm derived from smooth muscle cells. Its low incidence hampers the development of specific protocols for diagnosis and treatment.

    Objectives: To describe the clinical and histopathologic characteristics of a series of primary and secondary cutaneous leiomyosarcomas and to determine how these characteristics correlate with prognosis. Read More

    Correlation Between Incisional Biopsy Histological Subtype and a Mohs Surgery Specimen for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Oct 21. Epub 2017 Oct 21.
    Dermatology Department, Hospital Universitario Dr. José E. González, Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.
    Background: Histological diagnosis of a clinically suspected nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is recommended before treatment. For NMSC, concordance between the histological subtype of the preoperative biopsy and the excision specimen of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) has been reported to range from 10% to 81%. No large study on the concordance between NMSC histology seen in a preoperative biopsy with the following tumour specimen from Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) has been performed in a Latin American population.

    Fundación Piel Sana, Unidad de investigación de la Academia Española de Dermatología y Venereología, Madrid, España.
    Background And Objective: Bibliometric indicators provide a useful measure of the number of clinical research articles published in scientific journals and their quality. This study aimed to assess the amount and quality of research carried out in Spanish dermatology centers and to describe the research topics.

    Material And Method: Bibliometric study of clinical research articles that met the inclusion criteria and had a definitive publication date between 2005 and 2014 in MEDLINE or Embase in which the corresponding author's affiliation was a Spanish hospital dermatology department or other center.

    Allergic Contact Dermatitis by Anatomical Regions: Diagnostic Clues.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Oct 11. Epub 2017 Oct 11.
    Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital de la Sant Creu i Sant Pau, Barcelona, España.
    Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a common disease in daily clinical practice, and its prevalence has increased in recent years. It is characterized clinically by varying degrees of erythema, vesiculation, flaking, and lichenification, though these signs can also be present in other eczematous diseases. Patch testing is the main diagnostic tool to confirm ACD, but its accurate interpretation requires correct correlation with the medical history (details of exposure) and physical examination.

    Treatment of Malignant Cutaneous Adnexal Neoplasms.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Oct 5. Epub 2017 Oct 5.
    Servicio de Dermatología, Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma, Madrid, España.
    Malignant cutaneous adnexal neoplasms form a group of rare, typically low-grade-malignancy carcinomas with follicular, sebaceous, apocrine, or eccrine differentiation or a combination of the first 3 subtypes. Their clinical presentation is usually unremarkable, and biopsy is required to establish the differentiation subtype and the definitive diagnosis. Due to their rarity, no clear consensus has been reached on which treatment is most effective. Read More

    Prospective Single-Center Observational Study of the Allergenic Potential of Mercromina Film and Other Common Antiseptics in Patients With Contact Dermatitis.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Sep 29. Epub 2017 Sep 29.
    Departamento de Dermatología, Hospital Clínic Barcelona, Universitat de Barcelona, Barcelona, España.
    Introduction: Although Mercromina Film and other topical antiseptics are widely used, they are not included in the standard series recommended by the Spanish Contact Dermatitis and Skin Allergy Research Group for testing suspected allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). Furthermore, no recent studies have investigated the allergenic potential of merbromin.

    Objective: To determine the allergenic potential of merbromin and compare it with that of other topical antiseptics widely used in clinical practice, including povidone-iodine, chlorhexidine, and eosin. Read More

    Practical Management of Immunosuppressants in Dermatology.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Sep 27. Epub 2017 Sep 27.
    Sección de Dermatología, Hospital Universitario Infanta Sofía, San Sebastián de los Reyes, Madrid, España.
    The treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases is challenging because of their frequency and complexity. Treatment of these diseases is based on the suppression of the patient's immune system using corticosteroids, corticosteroid-sparing immunosuppressive agents, and biologic drugs, making an understanding of the management of immunosuppressive therapy essential. Before an immunosuppressive agent is prescribed, a study must be carried out to identify contraindications, detect latent infections, and determine the most appropriate dose. Read More

    Juvenile Dermatomyositis: Key Roles of Muscle Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Early Aggressive Treatment.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Sep 11. Epub 2017 Sep 11.
    Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Universitario Son Espases, Palma de Mallorca, España.
    Juvenile dermatomyositis is a rare systemic connective tissue disease with onset during childhood. It presents clinically with proximal muscle weakness and characteristic skin involvement. Diagnosis is based on the Bohan and Peter criteria, though many authors are now substituting biopsy with muscle magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for both diagnosis and follow-up. Read More
