Utility of Insulinoma-Associated Protein 1 (INSM1) and Mucin 2 (MUC2) Immunohistochemistry in the Distinction of Endocrine Mucin-Producing Sweat Gland Carcinoma From Morphologic Mimics.

Am J Dermatopathol 2021 Jun 2. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Abstract: Endocrine mucin-producing sweat gland carcinoma (EMPSGC) is a rare low-grade adnexal malignancy with a predilection for the eyelids of elderly White women, which is associated with invasive mucinous carcinoma with endocrine features in one-third of cases. EMPSGC is characterized by the presence of neuroendocrine differentiation and mucin production. However, EMPSGC displays a variety of architectural patterns including solid, cribriform, papillary, and cystic growth. Read More

The purpose of this case report is to demonstrate the outcomes of reconstruction in small-to-moderate-sized benign tumors of eyelids by using the propeller flap technique. Propeller flaps have been used by plastic surgeons for facial reconstruction and other body parts. However, very few oculoplastic surgeons have utilized this technique in eyelid reconstructive surgeries. Read More

Basal cell carcinoma of the eyelid margin: Dermoscopic clues in a case series.

Dermatol Ther 2021 May 27:e15006. Epub 2021 May 27.

Division of Melanoma Surgery, Sarcoma and Rare Tumors, IRCCS, Istituto Europeo di Oncologia, Milan, Italy.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) can sometimes affect the eyelids and in particular the eyelid margin, where it can often be misdiagnosed, mimicking other benign, more common diseases. Dermoscopy may provide additional diagnostic criteria for an earlier diagnosis of eyelid margin BCC, although the dermoscopic features of BCC affecting this anatomical site have seldom been reported. We highlight the peculiar presence of linear vessels perpendicular to the eyelid margin in BCCs of the eyelid margin. Read More

Clinical integration of fast Raman spectroscopy for Mohs micrographic surgery of basal cell carcinoma.

Biomed Opt Express 2021 Apr 11;12(4):2015-2026. Epub 2021 Mar 11.

School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, United Kingdom.

We present the first clinical integration of a prototype device based on integrated auto-fluorescence imaging and Raman spectroscopy (Fast Raman device) for intra-operative assessment of surgical margins during Mohs micrographic surgery of basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Fresh skin specimens from 112 patients were used to optimise the tissue pre-processing and the Fast Raman algorithms to enable an analysis of complete Mohs layers within 30 minutes. The optimisation allowed >95% of the resection surface area to be investigated (including the deep and epidermal margins). Read More

Optical Coherence Tomography of Peri-Ocular Skin Cancers: An Optical Biopsy.

Ocul Oncol Pathol 2021 Mar 2;7(2):149-158. Epub 2020 Dec 2.

The MUHC, McGill University Ocular Pathology and Translational Research Laboratory, McGill University, Montreal, Québec, Canada.

Introduction: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging has been used as a diagnostic tool for retinal disease for several years, and OCT apparatuses are becoming increasingly powerful. However, OCT has yet to reach its full potential in ophthalmology clinics. Alike retinal layers, it has been shown that OCT is able to generate cross-sectional images of the skin and allows visualization of skin lesions in a histopathology-like manner. Read More

A modified method for upper eyelid reconstruction with innervated orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flaps and lower lip mucosal grafts.

JPRAS Open 2021 Jun 24;28:131-139. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Department of Plastic Surgery, National Hospital Organization Osaka National Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

Background: Numerous reports have described methods for repairing full-thickness upper eyelid defects using lower eyelid tissue. To avoid sacrificing the lower eyelid and thereby prevent lower eyelid sagging or dysfunction, we used innervated orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flaps harvested from the upper eyelid for upper eyelid reconstruction.

Methods: We modified a method reported by Moschella and Cordova for repairing full-thickness upper eyelid defects using innervated bipedicled orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flaps mobilized from the upper eyelid and labial mucosal grafts. Read More

Dermoscopic Features of Giant Molluscum Contagiosum in a Patient with Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2020 Dec;28(7):233-235

Martyna Sławińska MD, PhD, Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology Medical University of Gdańsk, Smoluchowskiego 17 Street, 80-214 Gdańsk;

Giant molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a peculiar variant of the disease with the presence of multiple or single lesions larger than 5 mm. In contrast to typical molluscum contagiosum, dermoscopic features of giant lesions have been poorly described, and none of the reports included multiple giant lesions in an immunocompromised patient. We present a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome diagnosed with multiple giant molluscum contagiosum along with the dermoscopic features of this entity. Read More
