Multiple Primary Cutaneous Melanomas in a Bulgarian Patient: The Possible Role of One Step Melanoma Surgery (OSMS) As the Most Adequate Treatment Approach!

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2018 Nov 21;6(11):2155-2160. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Medical Institute of Ministry of Interior (MVR), Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Dermatologic Surgery, General Skobelev Nr 79, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Background: Simultaneous occurrence of multiple primary melanomas is a rare, however possible phenomenon, and it is believed that older, male, white, Atypical Mole Syndrome carriers (sporadic and familial) are part of the possible risk factors for its occurrence. In these patients, it is possible to observe involutional changes or (partial/complete) regression of melanocytic lesions, which are likely to be caused by the generation of a spontaneous immune reaction against specific tumour antigens.

Case Report: A 58-year-old male patient is presented with two melanocytic lesions located in the right clavicle (subclavicular area) and left the scapular area that meets clinically and dermatoscopically the requirements for malignant melanoma. Read More

Service d'Hépato-gastroentérologie, Faculté de Médecine et de Pharmacie de Fès, Université Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdellah, Fès, Maroc.

Many disorders of the digestive tract cause cutaneous manifestations that may be an indication of an underlying condition; hence dermatologist plays a key role in recommending that the patient see a gastroenterologist. Conversely, gastroenterologist often sees patients with mucocutaneous lesions suggesting possible association with well-known digestive disorders. Chronic inflammatory bowel diseases are the typical example of this essential collaboration between the two specialities. Read More

Angioinvasive Fungal Infections Impacting the Skin: Background, Epidemiology, and Clinical Presentation (Part 1).

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Aug 10. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

University of Iowa, Department of Dermatology and Pathology, 200 Hawkins Drive, Iowa City, IA 52246. Electronic address:

Angioinvasive fungal infections cause significant morbidity and mortality due to their propensity to invade blood vessel walls, resulting in catastrophic tissue ischemia, infarct, and necrosis. While occasionally seen in immunocompetent hosts, opportunistic fungi are emerging in immunosuppressed hosts, including patients with hematologic malignancy, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), organ transplant, and poorly controlled diabetes mellitus. The widespread use of antifungal prophylaxis has led to an "arms race" of emerging fungal resistance patterns. Read More

Crohn disease-associated neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis: report and literature review of neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis.

Dermatol Online J 2017 Nov 15;23(11). Epub 2017 Nov 15.

Department of Dermatology, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California.

Neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis (NUD) is a useful diagnostic term for urticarial lesions that are less pruritic and more painful than conventional urticaria. The histopathologic features include neutrophilic infiltrates in the interstitial dermis with a higher density than idiopathic urticaria. NUD has been associated with several systemic conditions, which are predominantly autoimmune and autoinflammatory in nature. Read More

Integrated Management of the Thick-Skinned Rhinoplasty Patient.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Feb 6;34(1):3-8. Epub 2018 Feb 6.

Department of Otolaryngology, Universidad Militar Nueva Granada, Bogota, Colombia.

Patients with thick skin are a challenge in facial plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty is still the most frequently performed facial plastic procedure worldwide and it becomes very difficult to obtain optimal consistent results in these patients. A systematic presurgical skin evaluation is performed dividing skin into type I-III depending on the elasticity, oiliness, presence of skin alterations, size of skin pores, and laxity. Read More

Endoscopic Transfer of Flexor Hallucis Longus Tendon for Chronic Achilles Tendon Rupture: Technical Aspects and Short-Time Experiences.

Foot Ankle Spec 2018 Oct 17;11(5):461-466. Epub 2018 Jan 17.

Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway (EEH, KHH, AHS).

Background: Chronic Achilles tendon ruptures can lead to reduced power of plantar flexion in the ankle with impaired gait ability. The open 1- or 2-incision technique for flexor hallucis longus transfer has proven good functional outcome but has the disadvantage of relatively extensive surgery performed at a vulnerable location. To reduce the risk of soft tissue problems, the flexor hallucis longus transfer can be performed endoscopically. Read More
