It should be differentiated with neonatal lupus erythematosus, nummular eczema, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, erythema annular centrifugum, annular urticaria, and annular erythema of infancy. Tinea capitis usually needs oral antifungal therapy, but the data of use in newborn is limited. Read More

When working with dermatology patients, the question sometimes arises which diagnostic tests and tools should be used for workup, particularly in cases of chronic urticaria (CU) and discoid nummular eczema, where the treatment of associated systemic diseases and infections may be crucial for patient outcome. The aim was to investigate retrospectively the influence of associated diseases on skin disease outcomes based on medical records of CU and nummular eczema patients in comparison to controls. We included patients admitted to our Dermatology Department over a 6-year period and analyzed their laboratory findings, related factors and outcomes recorded after two years of workup and treatment.

Int J Dermatol 2020 Jun 20;59(6):716-721. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Dermatologic Clinic, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Effectiveness of dupilumab for the treatment of nummular eczema phenotype of atopic dermatitis in adults.

Dermatol Ther 2020 05 11;33(3):e13290. Epub 2020 Mar 11.

Department of Health Sciences Vincenzo Tiberio, University of Molise, Campobasso, Italy.

Nummular eczema (NE) is currently considered as one of the clinical phenotypes of atopic dermatitis (AD) of the adult. In this multicentre study, 30 adult patients (age ≥ 18 years) affected with nummular-like AD were treated with dupilumab, a monoclonal antibody against the receptor for interleukin(IL)-4 and IL-13. The evaluation of the results after 16 weeks of treatment showed a significant improvement of the disease, as demonstrated by reduction in Eczema Area Severity Score (EASI), visual analogue score (VAS) of pruritus, and Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) scores.

The Unna Boot: A Historical Dressing for Varicose Ulcers.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2019 Dec;27(4):273-274

Assoc. Prof. Halil Tekiner, MD, PhD, Department of the History of Pharmacy and Ethics, Erciyes University School of Pharmacy , 38280 Kayseri, Turkey;

The German dermatologist Paul Gerson Unna (1850-1929) is a prominent figure in the history of medicine for pioneering modern dermatopathology and dermotherapy (Figure 1) (1). Aside from writing extensively on anatomy, histopathology, and treatment of skin diseases, he contributed to medicine in many other ways: he originated the idea of using coated pills to enhance local absorption in the intestine, introduced ammonium bituminosulfonate (ichthyol) and resorcinol into medicine, and described several skin conditions including seborrheic dermatitis. Moreover, in 1881 he established a private clinic in Hamburg, Germany, which became a leading expert center in the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders, hosting postgraduate physicians from all over the world for training (2).

The Role of Moisturizers in Addressing Various Kinds of Dermatitis: A Review.

Clin Med Res 2017 12 11;15(3-4):75-87. Epub 2017 Dec 11.

Politeknik Kesehatan Jakarta, Indonesia.

Moisturizer is a major component of basic daily skin care, particularly in presence of epidermal barrier alteration and reduced epidermal water content. It is an important part of a dermatologist's strategy to maintain skin health as well as treating various dermatoses which co-exist with skin dryness and are linked to impaired skin barrier function, such as in atopic disorders as well as other types of dermatitis. Mastering the knowledge regarding mechanism of action, application, dosage, adverse effects as well as specific clinical usage of moisturizers is a must for a dermatologist in order to support their use, particularly for evidence-based, therapeutic purposes.

Clin Dermatol 2017 Jul - Aug;35(4):354-359. Epub 2017 Mar 24.

Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai, New York, NY. Electronic address:

Atopic dermatitis is a complex, systemic inflammatory disorder associated with a variety of clinical features. The original criteria of Hanifin and Rajka include major criteria and a list of about two dozen minor criteria however, even the minor criteria do not include some features of atopic dermatitis noted less commonly but still seen with some frequency. This contribution first reviews the common clinical appearance of atopic dermatitis in infancy, childhood, and adulthood, as well as the less typical appearances, including lichenoid atopic dermatitis; juvenile plantar dermatosis; nummular-type atopic dermatitis; follicular atopic dermatitis; alopecia of atopic dermatitis; eczema coxsackium; and psoriasiform, perineal, and lip licker's dermatitis.

Adult-Onset Atopic Dermatitis: Fact or Fancy?

Jon M Hanifin

Dermatol Clin 2017 Jul;35(3):299-302

Department of Dermatology, Oregon Health & Science University, 3303 Bond Avenue, Portland, OR 97239, USA. Electronic address:

Atopic dermatitis therapy can be a challenge in many cases. Persistence into adulthood often reflects the more severe cases and such patients have the added problems of hand eczema and thick nummular lesions that resist topical medications. Within this group are patients labeled as having adult-onset atopic dermatitis, a designation that is hard to define and probably represents those whose childhood eczema was simply forgotten.

Diagnostic usefulness of dermoscopy in differentiating lichen aureus from nummular eczema.

J Dermatol 2017 May 3;44(5):533-537. Epub 2016 Dec 3.

Department of Dermatology, Kosin University College of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Lichen aureus (LA) is a variant of pigmented purpuric dermatosis that is characterized clinically by rust macules, papules or plaques, mainly on the legs. In some cases, LA can be difficult to be distinguished from nummular eczema (NE) with the naked eye. Dermoscopy can be applied to skin lesions, revealing additional features that can be highly valuable for correct diagnosis. Read More
