Fluorescent photodiagnostic evaluation of field cancerization treated with a medical device containing piroxicam 0.8% and sunscreen SPF 50+ for actinic keratosis.

Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Dermatological Clinic, Department of Clinical and Molecular sciences, Polytechnic Marche University, Ancona, Italy.

Actinic keratosis (AK) is the most common cutaneous intraepithelial neoplasm that typically develops on sun-damaged skin of elderly patients. Some untreated AK lesions may progress into invasive squamous cell carcinoma (iSCC) (1). Treatments for AKs could be classified in "lesion-directed treatments" including cryotherapy, laser, curettage, and dermabrasion; "field-directed treatments" including imiquimod, PDT, ingenol mebutate, diclofenac and piroxicam (1).

Ultrasonography Superior Over Visual Assessment in Evaluation of Wound Healing After Dermabrasion.

J Surg Res 2019 Feb 11;234:202-209. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery, Shandong Provincial Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University, Ji'nan, China. Electronic address:

Background: Dermabrasion as one kind of treatment for partial thickness wounds is controversial. Visual assessment as the main way to evaluate the healing process of burn wounds is also inaccurate. In this study we try to explore whether dermabrasion accelerates healing in wounds of partial thickness and determine a reliable way to evaluate epithelialization. Read More

Facial Scar Improvement Procedures.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Oct 8;34(5):448-457. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Utah Hospital, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Scars are a natural part of dermal healing following lacerations, incisions, or tissue loss. The ideal scar is narrow, flat, level with surrounding tissue, and difficult for the untrained eye to see due to color match and placement parallel to relaxed skin tension lines; however, scarring that is dyspigmented, hypertrophied, widened, contracted, or atrophic can be aesthetically displeasing or causing functional limitations. When the scar has unfavorable characteristics, scar revision is often indicated and the cosmetic surgeon must be knowledgeable of the minimally invasive as well as surgical techniques to improve aesthetics, reduced reoccurrence, or correct functional limitations.

Laser-Assisted Drug Delivery.

Actas Dermosifiliogr 2018 Dec 25;109(10):858-867. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Unidad de Láser, Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal, Madrid, España.

Absorption of topical products through the epidermis is limited by the skin's barrier function. Numerous techniques and agents such as microneedling, dermabrasion, radiofrequency, and lasers have been used to increase penetration within an approach known as transdermal drug delivery. One of these techniques is laser-assisted drug delivery (LADD), which often uses ablative fractional lasers (CO or erbium:YAG lasers) because of their capacity to produce microscopic ablated channels.

PDT and BF-200 ALA: The therapy option for the treatment of Poikiloderma of Civatte.

Dermatol Ther 2018 Jul 17;31(4):e12648. Epub 2018 Jul 17.

Hospital Universitario San Cecilio, Granada, Spain.

Poikiloderma is a chronic skin condition affecting middle-age men and women that comprises cutaneous atrophy, telangiectasias, and changes in the pigmentation of the skin usually of mottled appearance (both hyper- and hypopigmentation). There is no specific medical treatment for Poikiloderma of Civatte (PC), but the use of photoprotector/sunscreen + SPF 50 to avoid prolonged sun exposure is highly recommended in these patients. Some authors recommend the use of topical corticoids in early stages; however, the results have not been satisfactory. Read More

Department of Dermatology, University of California, Davis, 3301 C Street, Suite 1400, Sacramento, CA, 95816, USA.

As we gain a greater understanding of acne pathogenesis, both new agents as well as new uses for established drugs are being considered for the treatment of acne vulgaris. Multiple clinical trials assessing new formulations or combinations of established acne treatments have been conducted, and novel uses of antimicrobials such as modified diallyl disulfide oxide and nitric oxide are being assessed in clinical trials. There are also a multitude of new therapies currently being studied that target the inflammatory cascade of acne pathogenesis, including sebosuppressive and anti-inflammatory phytochemicals, and  small molecule inhibitors targeting sebaceous glands and enzymes, among others.

Combination of Follicular and Epidermal Cell Suspension as a Novel Surgical Approach in Difficult-to-Treat Vitiligo: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

JAMA Dermatol 2018 Mar;154(3):301-308

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Importance: Epidermal cell suspension (ECS) and follicular cell suspension (FCS) are successful surgical modalities for the treatment of stable vitiligo. However, repigmentation in generalized and acrofacial vitiligo and over acral or bony sites (eg, elbows, knees, iliac crests, and malleoli), which are difficult to treat, is challenging.

Objective: To study the efficacy of transplanting a combination of autologous, noncultured ECS and FCS (ECS + FCS) compared with ECS alone in stable vitiligo. Read More

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Medical University of Plovdiv, 15A Vasil Aprilov blvd., 4002 Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

We present a 6-month-old male patient, who was consulted with dermatologist by his parents, because of a pigmented lesion, present since birth, covering almost the all skin of the back and buttocks. A sharply bordered, unequally coloured congenital pigmented nevus, measuring approximately 21 cm in diameter was observed in the whole body skin examination. The lesion was affecting the lower 2/3 of the skin of the back and the top half of the gluteus area, extending to the lateral part of the tors, forward the abdomen and the upper lateral part of the hips, composed by multiple darker-pigmented nests and several lighter areas, with single depigmented zones, hairy surface, irregularly infiltrated on palpation.

Scar Revision and Recontouring Post-Mohs Surgery.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2017 Aug 30;25(3):463-471. Epub 2017 May 30.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, College of Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago, 1855 West Taylor Street, Chicago, IL 60611, USA.

Following Mohs reconstruction, several options are available to improve the appearance of the resulting scars.

Isotretinoin and Timing of Procedural Interventions: A Systematic Review With Consensus Recommendations.

JAMA Dermatol 2017 08;153(8):802-809

Pennsylvania State University, Hershey.

Importance: The notion that systemic isotretinoin taken within 6 to 12 months of cutaneous surgery contributes to abnormal scarring or delayed wound healing is widely taught and practiced; however, it is based on 3 small case series from the mid-1980s.

Objective: To evaluate the body of literature to provide evidence-based recommendations regarding the safety of procedural interventions performed either concurrently with, or immediately following the cessation of systemic isotretinoin therapy.

Evidence Review: A panel of national experts in pediatric dermatology, procedural/cosmetic dermatology, plastic surgery, scars, wound healing, acne, and isotretinoin was convened. Read More
