Scrotal rejuvenation encompasses not only the functional quality but also the aesthetic appearance of the scrotum. It includes medical therapy and procedural interventions to improve scrotal conditions that require morphologic restoration and/or aesthetic alteration. Rejuvenation of the scrotum may be appropriate for aging-related and non-aging-related changes concerning the hair (alopecia and hypertrichosis), the morphology (laxity and wrinkles), and/or the vascularity (angiokeratoma) of the scrotum.

[Acquired facial angiokeratoma].

Pan Afr Med J 2018 19;30:140. Epub 2018 Jun 19.

Service de Dermatologie-Vénérologie, Hôpital Militaire d'Instruction Mohammed V, Rabat, Maroc.

Angiokeratomas are vascular dilations (telangiectasic papules) with keratotic surface caused by capillary dilation in the dermal papilla due to venous hyperpression, vascular malformation or a capillary fragility. They most commonly are benign and just unsightly and they may sometimes reveal a dreaded overload disease known as Fabry Disease. Here we report the case of a 56-year old patient, with no notable medical history, presenting with nontraumatic, nonpruritic, bleeding on contact, grouped cluster erythematous papules without extracutaneous manifestations on the left malar region, that had occurred 4 months before.

Solitary plaque on the leg of a child: A report of two cases and a brief review of acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children and unilesional mycosis fungoides.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Oct 15. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, New York.

Acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children (APACHE) and unilesional mycosis fungoides (MF) are two rare dermatoses in the pediatric population which may have overlapping clinical and histopathologic features, making differentiation between these two diagnoses difficult. We present two similar cases of a solitary plaque on the thigh of a child, one representing APACHE and the other representing unilesional MF with granulomatous features, and we provide a brief overview of the clinical and histopathologic features of APACHE and unilesional MF.

Verrucous hemangioma and histopathological differential diagnosis with angiokeratoma circumscriptum neviforme.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Sep-Oct;93(5):712-715

Dermatology Department and Public Health Dermatology Outpatient Clinic, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul State Health Department, Porto Alegre (RS), Brazil.

Verrucous hemangioma is a rare vascular skin disorder with an immune profile similar to vascular neoplasms, but with behavior and evolution of vascular malformations. Its main differential diagnosis is angiokeratoma circumscriptum neviforme, with an almost indistinguishable clinical presentation because both diseases appear as erythematous patches that evolve to violaceous plaques, becoming scaly and even verrucous, most commonly affecting the lower limbs. Histopathology is crucial for the correct diagnosis: while in angiokeratoma the vascular alterations are limited to the papillary dermis, verrucous hemangioma extends deep into the dermis, reaching the subcutaneous tissue.

Expression of Peripheral Node Addressins by Plasmacytic Plaque of Children, APACHE, TRAPP, and Primary Cutaneous Angioplasmacellular Hyperplasia.

Department of Pathology, University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

High-endothelial venules are a common feature of 3 types of cutaneous pseudolymphomas: pretibial lymphoplasmacytic plaque (PLP) of children, acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children (APACHE), and T-cell rich angiomatoid polypoid pseudolymphoma (TRAPP). In addition, primary cutaneous angioplasmacellular hyperplasia (PCAH) overlaps with these other 3 conditions. We intend to study the expression of peripheral node addressins in PLP, APACHE, TRAPP, and PCAH. Read More

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Diego.

Genital rejuvenation is applicable not only to women (vaginal rejuvenation) but also to men (scrotal rejuvenation). There is an increased awareness, reflected by the number of published medical papers, of vaginal rejuvenation; however, rejuvenation of the scrotum has not received similar attention in the medical literature. Scrotal rejuvenation includes treatment of hair-associated scrotal changes (alopecia and hypertrichosis), morphology-associated scrotal changes (wrinkling and laxity), and vascular-associated scrotal changes (angiokeratomas).

Baywood Dermatology, Ajax, ON, Canada; CCA Medical Research, Ajax, ON, Canada; St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, ON, Canada; Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada; Probity Medical Research, Waterloo, ON, Canada.

Fabry disease (FD) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disease. A lack of alpha-galactosidase activity results in the accumulation of globotriaosylceramide in cells of various systems, leading to multi-systemic effects. The cutaneous hallmark of FD is a specific distribution of angiokeratoma. Read More

Identification of a Missense Mutation in the α-galactosidase A Gene in a Chinese Family with Fabry Disease.

Curr Genomics 2018 Jan;19(1):70-75

Center for Experimental Medicine and Department of Neurology, The Third Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha410013, China.

Introduction: Fabry Disease (FD), the second most common lysosomal storage disorder after Gaucher disease, is characterized by variable clinical manifestations, including angiokeratoma, corneal dystrophy, recurrent episodes of extremity pain, renal impairment, cardiac complications and cerebrovascular manifestations. It is caused by mutations in the α-galactosidase A gene (gene symbol GLA) on chromosome Xq22, which leads to deficiency of lysosomal α-galactosidase A (α-Gal A), and subsequent accumulation of glycosphingolipids in various tissues and organs. The aim of this study is to identify the disease-causing mutation in a five-generation Chinese family with FD. Read More

Advanced Clinical Research Center, Institute of Neurological Disorders, Shin-Yurigaoka General Hospital, Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan.

Fabry disease is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by a deficiency of α-galactosidase A (α-gal A), leading to the progressive accumulation of glycosphingolipids. Classical hemizygous males usually present symptoms, including pain and paresthesia in the extremities, angiokeratoma, hypo- or anhidrosis, abdominal pain, cornea verticillata, early stroke, tinnitus, and/or hearing loss, during early childhood or adolescence. Moreover, proteinuria, renal impairment, and cardiac hypertrophy can appear with age. Read More

Dermoscopy has been documented to increase the diagnostic accuracy of clinicians evaluating skin tumours, improving their ability to detect skin cancer and better recognize benign moles. However, dermoscopically 'false-positive' and 'false-negative' tumours do exist. False-positive diagnosis usually leads to unnecessary excisions. Read More

Département de dermatologie, Hôpital Hôtel-Dieu de France, Faculté de médecine, Université Saint-Joseph, Beyrouth, Liban.

Fabry disease, also known as Anderson-Fabry disease or angiokeratoma corporis diffusum universale, is an X-linked recessive form of sphingolipidosis caused by total or partial deficiency of the lysosomal hydrolase, alpha-galactosidase A. From the youngest age, it results in a gradual ubiquitous build-up of glycosphingolipids that are not degraded by the missing enzyme. Cutaneous, neurological, nephrologic, cardiac, gastrointestinal, ophthalmological, respiratory, cochleovestibular and haematological involvement are responsible for increased mortality and significant impairment of quality of life in subjects affected by the disease.
