    [Keratoacanthomas on recent tattoos: Two cases].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2017 Nov 7. Epub 2017 Nov 7.
    Consultation « tatouage », service de dermatologie, hôpital Bichat - Claude-Bernard, hôpitaux universitaires Paris-Nord-Val-de-Seine, 46, rue Henri-Huchard, 75018 Paris, France.
    Background: Increasing numbers of reports of rapidly arising, isolated or eruptive keratoacanthomas (KA) and squamous cell carcinomas (CSC) on the red part of tattoos tend to suggest a non-fortuitous link with the procedure. We report herein two different presentations of KAs on tattoos: one patient with multiple eruptive KAs on sun-exposed areas of a recent red tattoo and another with a solitary lesion on a recent tattoo. We discuss the issues related to the distinction between KAs and CSCs in this particular context. Read More

    [Ehlers-Danlos syndromes].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2017 Oct 9. Epub 2017 Oct 9.
    Service de génétique médicale, UFR des sciences de la santé Simon-Veil, université de Versailles-Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, 2, avenue de la Source-de-la-Bièvre, 78180 Montigny, France. Electronic address:
    Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a heterogeneous group of inheritable connective tissue disorders characterized by skin hyperextensibility, joint hypermobility and cutaneous fragility with delayed wound healing. Over and above these common features, they differ in the presence or absence of various organ and tissue abnormalities, and differences in genetic causal mechanisms and degree of severity. They are complex and multisystem diseases, with the majority being highly disabling because of major joint problems and neurosensory deficiencies, and in some cases, they may be life-threatening due to associated complications, especially vascular disorders.

    [Cosmetics and topical medications in acne: Where is the boundary?]
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2017 Oct 6. Epub 2017 Oct 6.
    Département de dermato-cancérologie, Hôtel-Dieu, CHU, place Alexis-Ricordeau, 44093 Nantes cedex, France. Electronic address:
    Acne is a chronic disease that may cause sequels such as atrophic or hypertrophic scars or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Topical and systemic medications with proven pharmacologic activity and which have received marketing authorization are the key actors in the treatment of acne. However, these topical or systemic treatments frequently cause adverse effects related to impairment of the skin barrier, and cosmetics must therefore be used in combination to help protect the skin barrier.

    [Self-tanning and sunless tanning products].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2017 Oct 18;144(10):638-644. Epub 2017 Aug 18.
    109, route de Limonest, 69380 Lissieu, France. Electronic address:
    Practically all currently available self-tanning products have as their active ingredient dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which may or may not be combined with erythrulose, tyrosine derivatives, and occasionally a naphthoquinone. The resulting skin tone, which resembles a natural tan, is due to chemical combination of the DHA with amino acids in the skin through the Maillard reaction. Polymer pigments known as melanoidins are formed and are fixed in the stratum corneum, where they remain until corneocyte desquamation occurs. Read More

    Service de dermatologie, hôpital d'instruction des armées Sainte-Anne, 83800 Toulon, France. Electronic address:
    Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a ubiquitous Gram-negative bacillus characterized by its greenish color and sweetish smell, is at the origin of potentially severe forms of dermatosis, such as ecthyma gangrenosum which marks immunosuppression or reveals blood-poisoning, especially in children. It frequently colonizes chronic wounds and serious burns, and spongiotic or acantholytic dermatosis, especially when severe or localized in skinfolds. It requires special care because of its high resistance to antibiotics and antiseptics. Read More
