Photodynamic therapy: A targeted literature review focussing on outcomes and optimisation in solid organ transplant recipients.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Flinders Medical Centre, Bedford Park, South Australia, Australia.

Squamous cell carcinoma incidence is 65- to 250-fold in solid organ transplant recipients, BCC is 10-fold and in Australia, rates of skin cancer in solid organ transplant recipients reach 70-82% prevalence within the first 20 years; hence, effective, evidence-based treatment of early and precancerous lesions is an essential tool in dermatological patient care. Photodynamic therapy is used to treat a range of conditions including actinic keratoses, squamous cell carcinoma in situ, superficial basal cell carcinoma and nodular basal cell carcinoma. A literature review was undertaken to examine the outcomes of photodynamic therapy in solid organ transplant recipients and methods of optimising outcomes in solid organ transplant recipients.

Keratinocyte cancer excisions in Australia: Who performs them and associated costs.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Department of Population Health, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Herston, Queensland, Australia.

Background/objective: To describe the clinical settings in which keratinocyte cancers are excised in Queensland and describe the types of practitioners who excise them; to examine costs; and to identify predictors of hospital admission.

Methods: We used linked data for participants from the QSkin study (n = 43 794), including Medicare claims and Queensland hospital admissions relating to treatment episodes for incident keratinocyte cancers from July 2011 to June 2015. We used multinomial logistic regression to measure associations between demographic and clinical characteristics and treatment setting. Read More

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Hospital Garcia de Orta, Almada, Portugal.

Generalised eruptive histiocytosis is a self-limited and benign non-Langerhans cell histiocytic disorder, characterised by recurrent crops of symmetrically distributed skin to red to brown coloured papules on the trunk and proximal extremities. Clinical and pathological correlation is required to establish the diagnosis. We herein present the clinical and histological features of generalised eruptive histiocytosis in a 24-year-old female patient. Read More

Key dermoscopic signs in the diagnosis and progression of extrafacial lentigo maligna: Evaluation of a series of 41 cases.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Dermatology Service, Hospital Fundación de Alcorcón, Madrid, Spain.

Background/objectives: Lentigo maligna is usually located on the face. Extrafacial lentigo maligna is less common, and diagnosis of early forms is very difficult. Confocal microscopy of facial and extrafacial lentigo maligna shares the same features (abundant dendritic cells and generalised atypical junctional thickenings) and helps us to identify the dermoscopic features of extrafacial lentigo maligna.

A new indirect immunofluorescence BIOCHIP method for the serological diagnosis of bullous pemphigoid: A review of literature.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Department of Dermatology, St George Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The BIOCHIP (Dermatology Mosaic 7, EUROIMMUN, Lubeck, Germany) is a novel multiplex indirect immunofluorescence technique used in the serological diagnosis of bullous pemphigoid. The BIOCHIP method combines the screening of several autoantibodies and target antigen-specific substrates in a single miniature incubation field to allow for simultaneous processing of the most common autoimmune bullous diseases autoantibodies using a single investigation. This manuscript reviews the literature on the validity of the BIOCHIP in the diagnosis of bullous pemphigoid. Read More

Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp - an Australian perspective: Insights to aid clinical practice.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Dermatology, Prince of Wales Hospital, Randwick, New South Wales, Australia.

Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp has particular relevance in Australia, due to its association with actinic damage. Despite its rarity, the recalcitrant nature of erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp dictates a protracted recovery fraught with relapse and recurrence, posing inherent challenges to successful treatment and complete recovery. In Australia, erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp is prevalent in the elderly, who are negatively affected due to the condition. Read More

The role of radiotherapy in the management of non-melanoma skin cancer.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Mar 31. Epub 2019 Mar 31.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre, Westmead Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The global incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer continues to increase as the global population ages with the highest incidence in the world occurring in Australian and New Zealand patients. There are numerous treatment options available for non-melanoma skin cancer patients of which radiotherapy is an efficacious and versatile tissue preserving non-surgical (or medical) option. In patients where excision may not be an option (medically/technically inoperable) or considered less ideal (e. Read More

Dysplastic/Clark naevus in the era of molecular pathology.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Mar 10. Epub 2019 Mar 10.

Department of Anatomical Pathology, PathWest Laboratory Medicine, QEII Medical Centre, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Dysplastic naevus has been a controversial entity since its first description by Clark in 1978. Despite a recent paradigm shift from the initially proposed notion that dysplastic naevus is a precursor to melanoma, its management has been increasingly more aggressive in the last decade. The latter is due to an unresolved uncertainty regarding its biological nature which necessitates further clarification. Read More

Resolution of acenocoumarol-associated calciphylaxis with drug withdrawal.

Australas J Dermatol 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Dermatology, Clinical Hospital and University and School of Medicine of Santiago de Compostela, Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Calciphylaxis is a syndrome of cutaneous ischaemic necrosis and ulceration due to arteriolar calcification with subsequent thrombosis, which rarely presents in patients without terminal kidney disease. Recently, several reports of coumarins-associated calciphylaxis have stressed the relevance of anticoagulant therapy as an important risk factor for the development of this condition. We report five cases of acenocoumarol-associated, biopsy-proven calciphylaxis in women aged between 64 and 92 years. Read More
