Comparative Evaluation of Efficacy and Safety of Tacrolimus and Dinoprostone Following Dermabrasion in Stable Vitiligo.

J Drugs Dermatol 2021 May;20(5):519-522

Autologous Non-Cultured Epidermal Cellular Grafting in the Surgical Treatment of Stable Vitiligo: The Skin Hospital Protocol.

Dermatology 2021 Apr 23:1-3. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

The Skin Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Autologous non-cultured epidermal cellular grafting is the treatment of choice for patients with stable refractory vitiligo. Recently, studies have shown cost-effective alternatives for this procedure, superseding previous techniques that required large research facilities or expensive pre-packaged kits. We provide modifications to current techniques, including the use of individual Petri dishes to allow for processing larger skin grafts, hyfrecation instead of conventional manual dermabrasion of the recipient site to reduce scar formation as well as better margin delineation, and an intravenous giving set with a filter for improved filtration of the mixed cell population.

Childs Nerv Syst 2020 10 13;36(10):2571-2596. Epub 2020 Oct 13.

Pediatric Neurosurgery, International Neuroscience Institute (INI), Hannover, Germany.

Neurocutaneous melanosis (NCM; MIM # 249400; ORPHA: 2481], first reported by the Bohemian pathologist Rokitansky in 1861, and now more precisely defined as neurocutaneous melanocytosis, is a rare, congenital syndrome characterised by the association of (1) congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) of the skin with overlying hypertrichosis, presenting as (a) large (LCMN) or giant and/or multiple (MCMN) melanocytic lesions (or both; sometimes associated with smaller "satellite" nevi) or (b) as proliferative melanocytic nodules; and (2) melanocytosis (with infiltration) of the brain parenchyma and/or leptomeninges. CMN of the skin and leptomeningeal/nervous system infiltration are usually benign, more rarely may progress to melanoma or non-malignant melanosis of the brain. Approximately 12% of individuals with LCMN will develop NCM: wide extension and/or dorsal axial distribution of LCMN increases the risk of NCM. Read More

Department of Burns and Reconstructive Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University, University Hospital, Pazitkova 4, 821 01, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multi-potent cells characterized by long term self-renewal and by potential for differentiation into cells of different mesenchymal tissue types such as fibroblasts, osteocytes, chondrocytes, and adipocytes. Their unique properties offer broad therapeutic potentials. Bone marrow has been used as the most common MSCs source, but it is gradually going to be replaced by adipose tissue which showed to contain more MSCs per unit than the bone marrow and clinical application of MSCs procured from the adipose tissue have been demonstrating at least similar results.

Tattoo Pigment within Regional Lymph Nodes Mimicking Cutaneous Melanoma Metastasis.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2020 Jul;28(1):47-48

Nikolina Jurišić, MD,

Dear Editor, The diagnosis of malignant melanoma accounts for 1-2% of all cancer diagnoses, around 4% of all malignant skin diseases, and 80% of all skin cancer deaths (1). The prognosis depends on several factors including tumor size, Clark level, Breslow thickness, location, ulceration, and presence of metastases. Detection of lymph node metastasis is initially accomplished by clinical examination and by operative evaluation for occult metastasis using sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) when indicated (2).
