Epidermal Inclusion Cyst Formation After Barbed Thread Lifting.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 May 14. Epub 2020 May 14.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Barbed thread lifting is a widely used method because it is easier to learn, faster, and the lower frequency of complications than the invasive lifting technique. The number of reported cases about complication requiring an invasive procedure is very small, and most cases are limited to minor complications. The authors introduce a chronic, recurrent epidermal inclusion cyst that occurs after Barbed thread lifting. Read More

Parameatal Median Raphe Cyst: A Case Report of a Midline Developmental Defect of True Urogenital Origin.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2020 Mar-Apr;11(2):216-218. Epub 2020 Mar 9.

Department of Dermatology, Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College and General Hospital, Sion, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Median raphe cyst (MRC) is an uncommon, asymptomatic benign lesion, that may present anywhere on the midline ridge between the external urethral meatus and the anus. Although they are developmental in origin, they often present in the postpubertal age, aggravated by trauma, and are frequently infected secondarily. MRCs are often misdiagnosed as epidermal cysts, steatocystoma multiplex, and eccrine cystadenomas. Read More

Skin malignancy initially misdiagnosed as a benign epidermal cyst.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2020 Apr 20;21(2):123-126. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Hallym University Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Skin cancer, which often occurs as a result of skin exposure to ultraviolet light radiation, usually presents with characteristic abnormal features, such as ulcerative lesions, irregular morphology, bleeding, and excessive growth. Therefore, skin cancer rarely resembles a benign tumor on visual inspection. Nonetheless, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma with nodular or polypoid features can have a similar appearance to that of benign tumors, meaning that they are sometimes misdiagnosed as benign.

EGFR signaling promotes basal autophagy for lipid homeostasis and somatic stem cell maintenance in the testis.

Autophagy 2020 Jun 21;16(6):1145-1147. Epub 2020 Mar 21.

Department of Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology, University of California , Los Angeles, CA, USA.

In contrast to stress-induced macroautophagy/autophagy that happens during nutrient deprivation and other environmental challenges, basal autophagy is thought to be an important mechanism that cells utilize for homeostatic purposes. For instance, basal autophagy is used to recycle damaged and malfunctioning organelles and proteins to provide the building blocks for the generation of new ones throughout life. In addition, specialized autophagic processes, such as lipophagy, the autophagy-induced breakdown of lipid droplets (LDs), and glycophagy (breakdown of glycogen), are employed to maintain proper energy levels in the cell.

Department of Radiology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Imaging studies of the hands and fingers are common, and radiologists are generally comfortable with traumatic and degenerative conditions which arise frequently in daily practice. However, a variety of common and uncommon soft-tissue tumors also occur in the hand, the appropriate diagnosis of which can be a source of confusion for both clinicians and radiologists. These lesions often have overlapping imaging characteristics; however, a structured approach can help provide a focused differential diagnosis and impact further workup and management. Read More

Synthetic hair reactions and treatment of complications: Case reports.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2020 Feb 15. Epub 2020 Feb 15.

Department of Dermatology, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Background: Synthetic hair fiber implantation first achieved widespread use in the 1970s, but in 1983, the US Federal Drug Administration banned the fibers due to its complications. Currently available synthetic fibers consist of polyamide material, which has been claimed to be effective and safe. Nevertheless, its use for hair restoration is controversial because of complications such as recurrent infections; the rejection and the faster-than-anticipated loss of fibers; frequent allergic reactions; fears about carcinogenicity; cicatricial alopecia; granulomatous hypersensitivity; and cyst formation.

MRI findings of an atypical testicular epidermoid cyst: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jan;99(3):e18818

Department of Ultrasonography, People's Hospital of Long Hua District, Shenzhen, China.

Introduction: Typical testicular epidermoid cysts (TECs) manifestate as a target sign or onion skin sign on ultrasonography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Clinicians are increasingly aware of the imaging characteristics of typical TECs, which allow accurate diagnosis and successful treatment while preserving the testicle, but atypical TECs are likely to be misdiagnosed as a malignant intratesticular neoplasm, leading to complete testicular resection.

Patient Concerns: A 26 year-old male patient complained of a painless enlargement of the left testicle that had been present for 1 month. Read More

EGFR Signaling Stimulates Autophagy to Regulate Stem Cell Maintenance and Lipid Homeostasis in the Drosophila Testis.

Electronic address:

Although typically upregulated upon cellular stress, autophagy can also be utilized under homeostatic conditions as a quality control mechanism or in response to developmental cues. Here, we report that autophagy is required for the maintenance of somatic cyst stem cells (CySCs) in the Drosophila testis. Disruption of autophagy in CySCs and early cyst cells (CCs) by the depletion of autophagy-related (Atg) genes reduced early CC numbers and affected CC function, resembling decreased epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling.

Mitochondrial fission regulates germ cell differentiation by suppressing ROS-mediated activation of Epidermal Growth Factor Signaling in the Drosophila larval testis.

Sci Rep 2019 12 23;9(1):19695. Epub 2019 Dec 23.

Department of Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, 90095, USA.

Mitochondria are essential organelles that have recently emerged as hubs for several metabolic and signaling pathways in the cell. Mitochondrial morphology is regulated by constant fusion and fission events to maintain a functional mitochondrial network and to remodel the mitochondrial network in response to external stimuli. Although the role of mitochondria in later stages of spermatogenesis has been investigated in depth, the role of mitochondrial dynamics in regulating early germ cell behavior is relatively less-well understood.
