Concomitant fibrofolliculoma and trichodiscoma on the abdomen.

Cutis 2018 Oct;102(4):E30-E32

Department of Dermatology, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, California, USA.

Fibrofolliculoma and trichodiscoma are adnexal tumors that arise from or around hair follicles and are two of the many characteristic features of Birt-Hogg-Dubé (BHD) syndrome. Fibrofolliculoma and other hair follicle hamartomas can be differentiated from their clinically indistinct counterparts (eg, trichodiscomas, trichoadenomas) by histologic and staining comparison. We report a rare case of a 54-year-old man who presented with a subcutaneous papule on the abdomen that was histologically proven to have features of both a solitary fibrofolliculoma and trichodiscoma.

Cutis 2018 Oct;102(4):E8-E11

Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, Dayton, and Jobst Vascular Institute/ProMedica Health System Toledo Hospital, Ohio, USA.

Angiosarcoma is a vascular malignancy that can affect various anatomic sites. Although rare, cutaneous angiosarcoma is the most common clinical manifestation, accounting for approximately 50% to 60% of cases. Cutaneous angiosarcoma typically is known to occur in 3 settings: (1) idiopathic, (2) following radiation treatment, and (3) in the setting of chronic lymphedema following mastectomy (known as Stewart-Treves syndrome).

Investing in the future of inpatient dermatology: the evolution and impact of specialized dermatologic consultation in hospitalized patients.

Cutis 2018 Oct;102(4):226-228

Department of Dermatology, Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, New Hyde Park, New York, USA.

Inpatient dermatology has transitioned from units that admitted and cared for patients with chronic dermatoses to consultative services that provide a wide breadth of care, leading to a paradigm shift in the role and impact of dermatologists in the inpatient setting. Consultative dermatology provides a distinct and essential service in the care of hospitalized patients, leading to improved care quality along with reductions in inappropriate health care spending.

Primary cutaneous apocrine carcinoma arising within a nevus sebaceus.

Cutis 2018 Oct;102(4):291-294

Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine/Largo Medical Center, Florida, USA.

Nevus sebaceus (NS)(organoid nevus) is a benign follicular neoplasm that commonly occurs on the scalp, face, or neck. With time, it may give rise to benign or malignant tumors such as trichoblastoma, syringocystadenoma papilliferum, and basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Rarely, other types of neoplasms may develop.

Xanthogranulomatous reaction to trametinib for metastatic malignant melanoma.

Cutis 2018 Oct;102(4):283-286

Department of Dermatology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA.

Trametinib, a mitogen-activated extracellular signal-regulated kinase (MEK) inhibitor, has demonstrated great promise in treating metastatic melanoma associated with BRAF V600E and V600K mutations; however, it also is highly associated with cutaneous adverse events (AEs). As both BRAF and MEK inhibitors become increasingly used to treat malignant melanoma, it is important to better characterize these AEs so that we can manage them. Herein, we present a case of a 66-year-old man who developed erythematous scaly papules on the face and bilateral upper extremities after beginning therapy with trametinib. Read More

Leukemia cutis in acute myeloid leukemia signifies a poor prognosis.

Cutis 2018 Oct;102(4):266;271;272

Department of Clinical Biomedical Science, Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton; ClearlyDerm, Boca Raton, Florida, USA.

Leukemia cutis (LC) is a rare neoplastic infiltration of the skin or subcutaneous tissue by leukemic cells. Because it correlates with sites of additional extramedullary involvement, it typically portends a poor prognosis. Although most cases of LC present concurrently with bone marrow infiltration, skin findings may precede systemic involvement in some cases; thus, early detection by dermatologists is essential.

Acral cutaneous metastasis from a primary breast carcinoma following chemotherapy with bevacizumab and paclitaxel.

Cutis 2018 Sep;102(3):E12-E14

Tru-Skin Dermatology, Cedar Park, Texas, USA.

Acral cutaneous metastasis from internal malignancy is rare, and the pathogenesis is not completely understood.

Nevus of Ota associated with a primary uveal melanoma and intracranial melanoma metastasis.

Cutis 2018 Sep;102(3):E2-E4

Department of Dermatology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, USA.

Nevus of Ota is a blue, hyperpigmented, benign dermatosis of the skin and mucosae that most often occurs unilaterally in the distribution of the ophthalmic (V1) and maxillary (V2) branches of the trigeminal nerve. Although uncommon, association with malignant melanoma is a complication that must be considered in the evaluation of patients with nevus of Ota. Mutations in the and genes in patients with nevus of Ota place them at higher risk for malignant melanoma and metastasis. Read More

Departments of Pathology and Social Sciences & Health Policy; Center for Dermatology Research, Department of Dermatology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA.

Although topical corticosteroids are the mainstay of treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD), these medications may lose efficacy over time, a phenomenon known as tachyphylaxis. However, the underlying mechanism for tachyphylaxis may be due to lack of treatment adherence rather than loss of efficacy of topical corticosteroids. In this study, we aimed to determine if AD patients who were previously unsuccessfully treated with topical corticosteroids would respond to desoximetasone spray 0. Read More

Molluscum contagiosum virus infection can trigger atopic dermatitis disease onset or flare.

Cutis 2018 Sep;102(3):191-194

Departments of Dermatology and Pediatrics, Mt Sinai St. Luke's of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA.

Predisposition to cutaneous viral infections is known to be a minor criterion of Hanifin and Rajka's diagnostic standard of atopic dermatitis (AD); however, the causal relationship between molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) infection and AD onset or aggravation has not been widely explored. The objective of this study was to identify pediatric patients with AD onset or flare triggered by MCV infection as well as to characterize the setting under which MCV may trigger AD onset or flares in children. Fifty children with prior or current MCV infection presenting sequentially to an outpatient pediatric dermatology practice over a 1-month period were evaluated. Read More

Department of Dermatology, George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, Washington, USA.

Dermal fillers are medical devices regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA); therefore, reported adverse events (AEs) are publicly available via OpenFDA. Evaluation of historical AE data trends may help distinguish between AEs related to expected learning curves associated with a new type of filler from AEs related to inherent characteristics of a product. In this study, the full history of AE data was evaluated to establish reproducible learning curves for FDA-approved dermal fillers. Read More
