Dermoscopic aspects of Bowen's disease are discussed for over a decade, but with no definitive criteria that would lead to a definitive diagnosis. Read More

    Is Ki-67, keratin 16, involucrin, and filaggrin immunostaining sufficient to diagnose inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus? A report of eight cases and a comparison with psoriasis vulgaris.
    An Bras Dermatol 2017 Sep-Oct;92(5):682-685
    Department of Dermatology, Affiliated Hospital of Guangdong Medical University, Zhanjiang, Guangdong, China.
    Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus and linear psoriasis are sometimes hard to differentiate clinically and pathologically. Although immunohistochemical expression of keratin 10 (K10), K16, Ki-67, and involucrin may be useful for differentiating both entities, these results have been reported in only a few cases. We collected data from 8 patients with inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus, 11 with psoriasis vulgaris, and 8 healthy controls and evaluated immunohistochemical expression of Ki-67, K16, involucrin, and filaggrin among them.

    Etanercept in erythema nodosum leprosum.
    An Bras Dermatol 2017 Jul-Aug;92(4):575-577
    Professor Rubem David Azulay Dermatology Institute, Santa Casa de Misericórdia do Rio de Janeiro (DPRDA-SCMRJ) - Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Brazil.
    One of the biggest challenges in treating leprosy is the control of reaction events. Patients with lepromatous leprosy may present reaction type II, or erythema nodosum leprosum, during treatment, and this reaction can remain in a recurrent form after being released from the hospital, requiring the use of thalidomide and/or prednisone for long periods of time, in turn increasing the risk of side effects. Two reports of the use of antiTNF to treat erythema nodosum leprosum were found in the literature. Read More
