Prevalence and associated factors of skin cancer in aged nursing home residents: A multicenter prevalence study.

PLoS One 2019 22;14(4):e0215379. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Clinical Research Center for Hair and Skin Science, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany.

Non-melanoma-skin cancer is an emerging clinical problem in the elderly, fair skinned population which predominantly affects patients aged older than 70 years. Its steady increase in incidence rates and morbidity is paralleled by related medical costs. Despite the fact that many elderly patients are in need of care and are living in nursing homes, specific data on the prevalence of skin cancer in home care and the institutional long-term care setting is currently lacking.

Dermoscopy of Pagetoid reticulosis, with dermoscopic-pathologic correlation.

Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed 2019 Apr 21. Epub 2019 Apr 21.

First Dermatology Department, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.

Pagetoid reticulosis (PR), also known as Woringer-Kolopp disease, is a rare variant of mycosis fungoides with distinctive clinicopathologic features. It clinically manifests as a solitary, erythematous, gradually enlarging, scaly or verrucous plaque on the lower extremities, and due to its indolent course and non-specific clinical features, may remain undiagnosed for years. In the current we describe the clinical and dermoscopic characteristics of a rare case of PR disease, and correlate them with the corresponding histopathologic findings. Read More

A Retrospective Study of the Diagnostic Accuracy of In Vivo Reflectance Confocal Microscopy for Basal Cell Carcinoma Diagnosis and Subtyping.

J Clin Med 2019 Apr 3;8(4). Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Dermatology, "Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 050474 Bucharest, Romania.

Current national and European guidelines recommend distinct management approaches for basal cell carcinoma (BCC) based on tumor location, size, and histopathological subtype. In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a non-invasive skin imaging technique which may change the diagnostic pathway for BCC patients. This study aimed to determine the sensitivity and specificity of RCM for BCC diagnosis, assess the predictive values of several confocal criteria in correctly classifying BCC subtypes, and evaluate the intraobserver reliability of RCM diagnosis for BCC.

A Collision Tumor: Reflectance Confocal Microscopy Features and Correlation between Dermoscopy and Histopathology.

Indian J Dermatol 2019 Mar-Apr;64(2):155-157

Department of Pathology, Istanbul Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Coexistence of two types of malignant neoplasms, called 'a collision tumor,' is relatively uncommon. Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) are known to coexist with other cutaneous lesions, but the collision of BCC with malignant melanoma is rare. We report a rare case of BCC with underlying lentigo maligna melanoma, focusing on dermoscopic and reflectance confocal microscopic (RCM) findings and their correlation with histopathology.

Usefulness of the "two-step method" of digital follow-up in early stage melanoma detection in at high risk French patients - A retrospective 4-year study.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

APHP Service de Dermatologie, Hôpital Saint-Louis, Paris.

Dermoscopy was proven more accurate than naked-eye examination and sequential digital dermoscopy imaging (SDDI) superior to dermoscopy alone for melanoma detection . SDDI combined with total-body photography (TBP) namely the "two-step method" of digital follow-up (DFU), seems at present the best surveillance strategy for high risk patients. With the aim to endorse its usefulness, we retrospectively studied 148 at high risk patients included in DFU at the Dermato-oncology Unit of Hôpital Saint-Louis between 2014 and 2018. Read More

Reflectance confocal microscopy in the diagnosis of pigmented macules of the face: differential diagnosis and margin definition.

Photochem Photobiol Sci 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Surgical, Medical, Dental & Morphological Sciences with Interest Transplant, Oncological & Regenerative Medicine, Dermatology Unit, University of Modena & Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy.

In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive high-resolution skin imaging tool that has become an important adjunct to clinical exam, dermoscopy and histopathology assessment, in the diagnosis and management of pigmented macules of the face. The diagnosis of early stage lentigo maligna (LM) and lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) is challenging and RCM improves the diagnostic accuracy in the differential diagnosis of LM with other macules of the face such as solar lentigo (SL), pigmented actinic keratosis (PAK), seborrheic keratosis (SK) and lichen planus-like keratosis (LPLK). Here we review the state-of-the-art of RCM morphologic descriptors, standardized terminology, and diagnostic algorithms for the RCM assessment of pigmented macules of the face including melanocytic, and nonmelanocytic lesions.

[Dermoscopy in special locations : Nails, acral skin, face, and mucosa].

Hautarzt 2019 Apr;70(4):295-311

Hautarzt- und Lehrpraxis, Konstanz, Deutschland.

The use of dermoscopy by dermatologists across Europe has become a standard examination for benign and malignant skin lesions and increasingly also for inflammatory skin diseases. However, based on the experience of the authors from numerous dermoscopy courses, knowledge about important dermoscopic features in special locations such as mucosa or nails is often limited. This may be explained by (1) a different anatomy of the skin and its adnexa in special locations in comparison to the remaining integument, (2) difficult technical access to special locations with a dermatoscope, and (3) a rather low incidence of malignant skin neoplasms in areas of special locations (with the exception of facial skin/scalp).

Automatic lesion border selection in dermoscopy images using morphology and color features.

Skin Res Technol 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Stoecker and Associates, Rolla, Missouri.

Purpose: We present a classifier for automatically selecting a lesion border for dermoscopy skin lesion images, to aid in computer-aided diagnosis of melanoma. Variation in photographic technique of dermoscopy images makes segmentation of skin lesions a difficult problem. No single algorithm provides an acceptable lesion border to allow further processing of skin lesions. Read More
