Painful tumors of the skin: "CALM HOG FLED PEN AND GETS BACK".

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2019 13;12:123-132. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Compass Dermatopathology, San Diego, CA, USA.

Painful tumors of the skin present as dermal or subcutaneous nodules. They can originate from several sources: adipose tissue, cartilage degeneration, deposition of bone or calcium, eccrine glands, fibrous tissue, infiltration of benign (endometrium) or malignant (metastatic neoplasm) tissue, muscle, nerve, or vascular structures. Although pathologic evaluation of the lesion is necessary to determine the diagnosis, it is possible to make a reasonable differential diagnosis based on knowledge of prior tumors that have appeared as tender lesions.

[Calcific uremic arteriolopathy in hemodialysis patient, review of literature through five cases reports].

Nephrol Ther 2018 Nov 29;14(6):439-445. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Service de néphrologie-hémodialyse et transplantation rénale, université Cadi Ayyad, CHU Mohammed VI, BP 2360 Principal, avenue Ibn Sina, Marrakech, Maroc.

Calcific uremic arteriolopathy, also called calciphylaxis, is a rare and severe disorder that presents with skin ischemia and necrosis, sometimes it presents with systemic necrosis, the process is secondary to the obliteration of the arterioles first by sub-intimal calcium deposits and then by thrombosis. These lesions can often lead to death due to infectious complications and comorbidities such as diabetes, obesity, arteritis, diffuse vascular calcifications, heart disease and undernutrition. The diagnosis is suggested by the characteristic ischemic skin lesions and their distribution, often bilateral and painful, associeted with calcific uremic arteriolopathy risk factors (phosphocalcic abnormalities, anti-vitamin K).

Factors associated with false-negative pathologic diagnosis of calciphylaxis.

J Cutan Pathol 2019 Jan 4;46(1):16-25. Epub 2018 Nov 4.

Massachusetts General Hospital, Dermatopathology Unit, Department of Pathology, Boston, Massachusetts.

Background: Calciphylaxis is a rare, painful, and debilitating disorder of vascular calcification and skin necrosis that typically affects patients with advanced kidney disease. During our routine pathology practice, we noted several missed diagnoses on calciphylaxis consultation cases originating from outside institutions and sought to explore factors associated with false-negative pathologic diagnosis of calciphylaxis.

Methods: The pathology database of a large tertiary academic medical center was retrospectively searched for "calciphylaxis" in inside reports on outside surgical consultation cases between 2007 and 2017. Read More

A Rare Cause of Leg Ulcer: Calcinosis Cutis as a Part of CREST Syndrome.

Int J Low Extrem Wounds 2018 Dec 1;17(4):282-284. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

1 Department of Dermatology, Kocaeli University School of Medicine, Kocaeli, Turkey.

Leg ulcers are not a disease themselves, they are a symptom of a disease. To manage them properly, finding the correct diagnosis of the disease is mandatory. Our case is a model to underline that leg ulcers are a significant burden for the patient, because leg ulcer got ahead of the patient's other serious complaints such as Raynaud's phenomenon or sclerodactyly.

Topical sodium thiosulfate for calcinosis cutis associated with autoimmune connective tissue diseases: the Mayo Clinic experience, 2012-2017.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2018 Sep 25. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Department of Dermatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

In this case series, we retrospectively identified all patients treated with topical sodium thiosulfate (TST) for calcinosis cutis (CC) associated with underlying autoimmune connective tissue diseases at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN, USA) during the period 1 January 2012 to 27 June 2017. Of 28 patients identified (mean age 57.0 years; 96% female), 19 (68%) had clinical improvement of their CC with TST, 7 (25%) had no response and 2 (7%) had unknown response. Read More

Management of calcific myonecrosis with a sinus tract: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Sep;97(38):e12517

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kyung Hee University Hospital, College of medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Korea.

Rationale: Calcific myonecrosis is a very rare late sequela that occurs in patients who have had trauma accompanied by vascular compromise, in which a single muscle or entire muscles in a compartment undergoes necrosis and form a calcified mass. It is mostly a benign entity, but some cases cause bone destruction and form non-healing chronic sinuses. In such cases, wound management becomes difficult and there is a potential risk of secondary infection. Read More

Distinct pattern of neostriatal calcifications in dyskeratosis congenita: A case report and literature review.

Clin Neuropathol 2018 Nov/Dec;37(6):277-282

Dyskeratosis congenita (DKC) is a rare, inherited disorder classically known by the triad of nail dystrophy, mucosal leukoplakia, and lacy reticulated skin hyperpigmentation. Bone marrow failure is a prominent feature and accounts for most deaths in these patients. Genetic mutations resulting in shortened telomeres have been shown to cause DKC, which is the basis for categorizing it as a "premature aging syndrome". Read More

Systemic sclerosis: Current concepts of skin and systemic manifestations.

Clin Dermatol 2018 Jul - Aug;36(4):459-474. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VAMC, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA; Department of Dermatology, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Systemic sclerosis is an uncommon autoimmune connective tissue disease with multiorgan system involvement and significant associated morbidity and mortality. Cutaneous signs and clinical manifestations are of particular importance, as they may be recognized before systemic manifestations, allowing earlier risk stratification into the limited and diffuse cutaneous subtypes, as well as earlier initiation of treatment. Important cutaneous manifestations include Raynaud's phenomenon, digital ulcers, cutaneous sclerosis, calcinosis cutis, telangiectasias, pruritus, and dyspigmentation. Read More
