    1 Department of Dermatology, Texas Tech Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, TX, USA.
    Sarcoidosis is a multisystem inflammatory condition of unknown etiology. Variability in the cutaneous features of sarcoidosis is profound, and its protean manifestations affirm the condition's designation as one of dermatology's "great mimics." Cutaneous phenotypes of sarcoidosis include but are by no means limited to ichthyosiform, alopecic, erythrodermic, angiolupoid, and verrucous variants. Read More

    Papulopustular rosacea and rosacea-like demodicosis: two phenotypes of the same disease?
    J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2018 Feb 25. Epub 2018 Feb 25.
    Institut de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en Biologie humaine et moléculaire (IRIBHM) & Service de Biostatistique et Informatique médicale (SBIM), Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium.
    Background: Papulopustular rosacea and rosacea-like demodicosis have numerous similarities, but they are generally considered as two distinct entities, mainly because the causal role of the Demodex mite in the development of rosacea is not yet widely accepted. Several clinical characteristics are traditionally considered to differentiate the two conditions; for example, papulopustular rosacea is typically characterized by central facial papulopustules and persistent erythema, whereas small superficial papulopustules and follicular scales rather suggest rosacea-like demodicosis. However, none of these characteristics is exclusive to either entity. Read More

    Dermatoscopic signs in cutaneous leishmaniasis.
    An Bras Dermatol 2017 Nov-Dec;92(6):844-846
    Dermatology Department. University Hospital San Cecilio, Granada, Spain.
    Dermoscopy is a non-invasive technique widely used to aid in the characterization and diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions. Recently, it has also been employed for the evaluation of non-pigmented skin tumours, and inflammatory and infectious cutaneous diseases. Although the diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis is confirmed by the demonstration of amastigotes in infected skin or by the growth of promastigotes in culture medium, dermoscopy could be useful as a further diagnostic test.

    Black peel in facial dermatoses.
    J Cosmet Dermatol 2017 Aug 22. Epub 2017 Aug 22.
    Dermatology department, Academia title for health professional (QU affiliation), Libya, Tripoli.
    Background: Melasma (facial dermatoses) is an acquired chronic disorder of hyperpigmentation over sun exposed parts and continues to be a therapeutic challenge due to the presence of melanin at varying depths in the epidermis and dermis, and many researchers are working hard to find a solution. The main culprit to remain is direct sun exposure, with other factors like drugs, genetic predisposition, thyroid abnormalities, pregnancy, phototoxic and photoallergic cosmetics. Melasma continues to have a remarkable impact on the well-being of affected patients causing deep psychological and social anguish, and with the expansion of cosmetic dermatology globally, treatments that are successful against skin diseases and boost beauty without prolonged recovery periods, or exposing patients to the risks of surgery, are increasingly recognised and acknowledged.
