Lichen Planopilaris Arising between Two Linear Surgical Scars.

Int J Trichology 2022 May-Jun;14(3):112-114. Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Dermatology, Graduate School of Medical Science, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is a type of lymphocytic cicatricial alopecia, which can occur at unusual sites. It can be difficult to diagnose at an early stage and may be misdiagnosed as seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis in early stages before alopecia occurs. We report a rare case in which alopecia occurred between two long surgical scars on the scalp several years after surgery. Read More

The Relationship Between the Effectiveness of HMME-PDT and the Dermoscopic Features of Port-wine Stains in Chinese Pediatric Patients: A Retrospective Study.

Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University, Nanning, 530021, China.

Introduction: Although pulsed dye laser (PDL) remains the gold standard for the treatment of port-wine stains (PWS), hematoporphyrin monomethyl ether photodynamic therapy (HMME-PDT) is another treatment modality that has been shown to be effective in the treatment of PWS. This study aimed to observe the clinical efficacy and therapeutic response of HMME-PDT in the treatment of pediatric Chinese patients with PWS and to analyze the association between the efficacy of therapy and the dermoscopic features of PWS.

Methods: Pediatric patients with PWS and negative HMME skin test were enrolled between December 2017 and May 2021. Read More

Dermoscopy of skin parasitoses, bites and stings: a systematic review of the literature.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Institute of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of Udine, Udine, Italy.

Besides classic applications, dermoscopy has gained significant appreciation also for non-tumoral dermatoses (general dermatology). In this field, skin parasitoses (infestations), bites and stings have been reported among the conditions that may benefit most from dermoscopic examination. However, published data on this topic are sparse and often lack a standardized analytical approach. Read More

Discrimination of cancerous from benign pigmented skin lesions based on multispectral autofluorescence lifetime imaging dermoscopy and machine learning.

J Biomed Opt 2022 Jun;27(6)

University of Oklahoma, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Norman, Oklahoma, United States.

Significance: Accurate early diagnosis of malignant skin lesions is critical in providing adequate and timely treatment; unfortunately, initial clinical evaluation of similar-looking benign and malignant skin lesions can result in missed diagnosis of malignant lesions and unnecessary biopsy of benign ones.

Aim: To develop and validate a label-free and objective image-guided strategy for the clinical evaluation of suspicious pigmented skin lesions based on multispectral autofluorescence lifetime imaging (maFLIM) dermoscopy.

Approach: We tested the hypothesis that maFLIM-derived autofluorescence global features can be used in machine-learning (ML) models to discriminate malignant from benign pigmented skin lesions. Read More

Computational Intelligence-Based Melanoma Detection and Classification Using Dermoscopic Images.

Comput Intell Neurosci 2022 31;2022:2370190. Epub 2022 May 31.

College of Computer Engineering and Sciences, Prince Sattam Bin Abdulaziz Univeristy, Al Kharj, Saudi Arabia.

Melanoma is a kind of skin cancer caused by the irregular development of pigment-producing cells. Since melanoma detection efficiency is limited to different factors such as poor contrast among lesions and nearby skin regions, and visual resemblance among melanoma and non-melanoma lesions, intelligent computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) models are essential. Recently, computational intelligence (CI) and deep learning (DL) techniques are utilized for effective decision-making in the biomedical field. Read More
