    Clin Exp Dermatol 2017 Sep 22. Epub 2017 Sep 22.
    Department of Clinical Oncology, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and University of Manchester, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Manchester, UK.
    Folliculitis decalvans (FD) is classified as a primary neutrophilic cicatricial alopecia, and is estimated to account for approximately 10% of all cases of primary cicatricial alopecia. The role of dysfunctional immune activity and the presence of bacteria, particularly Staphylococcus aureus, appear pivotal. We describe a 26-year-old man with a 4-year history of FD that was recalcitrant to numerous systemic and topical therapies, whose disease was virtually cleared during a follow-up of 25 months following a course of treatment with systemic photodynamic therapy (PDT) using ultraviolet light (100-140 J/cm(2) ) with porfimer sodium 1 mg/kg as monotherapy.

    J Cutan Pathol 2017 Mar 26. Epub 2017 Mar 26.
    Department of Dermatology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Los Angeles, Maryland.
    Skin diseases presenting with keratotic papules, atrophy, cicatricial alopecia and/or "lichenoid" histopathologic changes have been described under at least 30 names. This family of diseases contains 2 subgroups, largely based on clinical features: keratosis pilaris atrophicans (KPA; including keratosis pilaris atrophicans faciei/ulerythema ophryogenes, atrophoderma vermiculata, and keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans); and the lichen planopilaris (LPP) subgroup (including LPP, frontal fibrosing alopecia, Graham-Little-Piccardi-Lassueur Syndrome and fibrosing alopecia in a pattern distribution). An interface dermatitis with lichenoid inflammation is characteristic of the LPP group of disorders, but the literature provides scant information about the histopathology of the KPA group.

    Keloid and Hypertrophic Scars Are the Result of Chronic Inflammation in the Reticular Dermis.
    Int J Mol Sci 2017 Mar 10;18(3). Epub 2017 Mar 10.
    Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Nippon Medical School Hospital, Tokyo 113-8603, Japan.
    Keloids and hypertrophic scars are caused by cutaneous injury and irritation, including trauma, insect bite, burn, surgery, vaccination, skin piercing, acne, folliculitis, chicken pox, and herpes zoster infection. Notably, superficial injuries that do not reach the reticular dermis never cause keloidal and hypertrophic scarring. This suggests that these pathological scars are due to injury to this skin layer and the subsequent aberrant wound healing therein. Read More

    Acne necrotica (necrotizing lymphocytic folliculitis): An enigmatic and under-recognised dermatosis.
    Australas J Dermatol 2017 Feb 27. Epub 2017 Feb 27.
    Sherwood Road Dermatology, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
    Acne necrotica is a disorder of adults of obscure aetiology, featuring repeated cropping of inflammatory papulonodules which rapidly necrotise, leaving varying degrees of superficial scarring with pathological features in early lesions of a necrotising lymphocytic folliculitis. A perceived diminishing interest in this entity in recent years prompted a prospective study of patients presenting to a dermatology practice over a 3-year period to reassess the prevalence of this disorder in general dermatological patients, leading to the identification of 47 patients (35 female) with features of acne necrotica, with histopathology undertaken in atypical cases. We identified the importance of the recognition of primary lesions (1-2 mm umbilicated erythematous papules), often difficult to find in excoriated areas, as being paramount in the diagnosis both clinically and histologically in our study, which reveals a significantly more prevalent and clinically diverse disorder than featured in previous textbook and academic journal descriptions.
