Case Rep Dermatol Med 2020 16;2020:5217567. Epub 2020 Mar 16.

Strategic Pharmaceutical Advisors, 1750 Tysons Boulevard, Suite 1500 McLean, VA, USA.

Truncal acne is present in approximately half of all patients with facial acne but is also occasionally seen in isolation. Important considerations when selecting treatment options for adult female acne, whether on the face, back, chest, or shoulders, include patient compliance, treatment response time, tolerability of the treatment, and psychosocial impact of the disease. Oral antibiotics are widely prescribed for truncal acne due to the challenges of applying topical therapy to such an extensive body surface area. Read More

Exclusive Cutaneous and Subcutaneous Sarcoidal Granulomatous Inflammation due to Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors: Report of Two Cases with Unusual Manifestations and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Dermatol Med 2019 9;2019:6702870. Epub 2019 Jul 9.

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), California, USA.

Recent emergence of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) has revolutionized the treatment of cancers and produced prolonged response by boosting the immune system against tumor cells. The primary target antigens are cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen-4 (CTLA-4), a downregulator of T-cell activation, and programmed cell death-1 receptor (PD-1), a regulator of T-cell proliferation. This enhanced immune response can induce autoimmune adverse effects in many organs. Read More

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Chiba Cancer Center, 666-2 Nitonacho, Chuo-ku, Chiba 260-8717, Japan.

Dermatofibromas are common benign fibrohistiocytic lesions, usually appearing as slow growing firm dermal nodules with a predilection for the extremities (mostly the lower legs). They are found mostly in middle-aged women and are usually smaller than 2 cm in diameter. Giant dermatofibromas exceeding 5 cm in diameter are rare. Read More

Neutrophilic Dermatosis of the Dorsal Hands: Report of a Case and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Dermatol Med 2019 22;2019:8301585. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, Las Vegas, NV, USA.

Neutrophilic dermatosis of the dorsal hands is an underrecognized entity, which is a distributional variant of Sweet's syndrome. It is often clinically misdiagnosed as an infectious process in overwhelming majority of the cases and the treatment is therefore delayed. Also, its association with underlying systemic and neoplastic disorders makes the need for an accurate diagnosis more crucial. Read More

Department of Anatomy-Histology-Embryology, Faculty of Medicine, School of Health Sciences, University of Ioannina, Ioannina, Greece.

Most primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (PCBCL) are CD5 negative, and only a few cases were found to express CD5. We report the first well-documented CD5+ primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma-leg type (PCDLBCL-LT). A 71-year-old woman with a history of Multiple Sclerosis was admitted because of a nodule at the left thigh. Read More

Diagnosis of Woolly Hair Using Trichoscopy.

Case Rep Dermatol Med 2019 3;2019:8951093. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Dermatology, College of Medical Sciences, Bharatpur 44200, Nepal.

Hair shaft abnormalities including woolly hair are traditionally diagnosed by clinical examination and light microscopy which involves plucking of multiple hairs for examination. This is usually an inconvenient procedure especially in children. Trichoscopy may be a useful tool allowing close visualization of multiple hairs without causing discomfort to the patients.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Muenster, Muenster, Germany.

Bathing suit ichthyosis (BSI) is a rare variant of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) due to transglutaminase-1 gene () mutations leading to a temperature sensitive phenotype. It is characterized by dark-grey or brownish scaling restricted to the "bathing suit" areas. We report two Indian girls with bathing suit ichthyosis and mutations in (patient 1: homozygous for c.

Department of Skin and Venereal Diseases, Faculty of Medicine, School of Health Sciences, University of Ioannina, Ioannina, Greece.

Bowen's disease (BD) is a relatively rare squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with a limited potential of becoming invasive. Ingenol mebutate (IM) was relatively successful for the treatment of BD lesions in small case series. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a promising method for the diagnosis of cutaneous keratinocytic carcinomas, including BD. Read More

Department of Dermatology, University of Texas McGovern Medical School at Houston, Houston, TX, USA.

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a rare cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) which can cause significant morbidity. During the disease course, it classically will progress through three clinical stages in the skin: patch-, plaque-, and tumor-stage. The early stages exhibit various histopathological mimics that often lead to misdiagnosis. Read More

Specialist in Dermatology-Venereology, Chief of State Clinic of Dermatology, Hospital for Skin and Venereal Diseases, Delfon 124, 54643 Thessaloniki, Greece.

We report a case report of lupus vulgaris (LV) presented on the extremities of an 80-year-old man. He was misdiagnosed as having psoriasis and referred to our department for a second-opinion evaluation. The discrepancy between the clinical manifestation which was misleading and the dermatoscopic findings raised the suspicion of an underlying granulomatous disease and we proceeded to skin biopsy.

Dermatology Division, Department of Internal Medicine, Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.

Orf is a highly contagious skin disease commonly seen in goats and sheep that can be transmitted to people who have direct contact with infected animals. Here, we report the clinical manifestation, dermoscopy, and scanning electron microscopy in two women who developed skin lesions on their hands after handling goats with wounds in the udders. Human orf is usually self-limiting and no specific treatment is needed. Read More

Concurrent Diagnoses of Cutaneous Sarcoidosis and Recurrent Metastatic Breast Cancer: More than a Coincidental Occurrence?

Case Rep Dermatol Med 2018 5;2018:2812439. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Department of Dermatology, Mater Misercordiae Hospital, Raymond Terrace, South Brisbane, Queensland 4101, Australia.

Sarcoidosis is a rare, chronic, multisystem disease of unknown aetiology, characterised by non-caseating epithelioid cell granulomas. Its association with internal malignancy, in particular haematological cancers has been strongly documented in the literature, while its link with solid organ malignancies is less extensively reported. We present an atypical case of cutaneous sarcoidosis occurring in association with breast cancer recurrence in a 49-year-old female. Read More

Dasatinib-Induced Hypopigmentation in Pediatric Patient with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Dermatol Med 2018 9;2018:4062431. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

King Abdullah International Medical Research Center, King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences, P.O. Box 9515, Jeddah 21423, Saudi Arabia.

Dasatinib is an oral second-generation multitarget tyrosine-kinase inhibitor (TKI) that is efficacious in treating imatinib-resistant chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) or intolerant cases. Noncutaneous adverse effects with dasatinib are well known in the literature, most commonly cytopenias and fluid retention, while pigmentary abnormalities have rarely been reported. We report the case of a 12-year-old male known case of CML, who presented to dermatology clinic approximately 2 years after initiating dasatinib treatment, with new-onset hypopigmentation of his upper limb, upper chest, and both knees of six months' duration.
