Successful Treatment of Full Thickness Frontal Skull Bone Defect With Dermal Fat Grafting and Artificial Bone Grafts.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Apr 16. Epub 2020 Apr 16.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Rigid reconstruction for frontal bone defects not only improves function, but also approximates more normal appearance. However, in cases involving dural scar contractures, a concave deformation remains when rigid reconstruction is performed without compensating for dead space created by swelling of the brain. This study involved 4 cases in which a 2-stage reconstruction procedure was used to first eliminate dead space by grafting dermal fat, and subsequently carry out rigid reconstruction to achieve a natural forehead configuration.

Department of Pediatrics, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Miyagi, Japan.

Skin lesions, cataracts, and congenital anomalies have been frequently associated with inherited deficiencies in enzymes that synthesize cholesterol. Lanosterol synthase (LSS) converts (S)-2,3-epoxysqualene to lanosterol in the cholesterol biosynthesis pathway. Biallelic mutations in LSS have been reported in families with congenital cataracts and, very recently, have been reported in cases of hypotrichosis. Read More

Fat Grafting for Facial Rejuvenation.

Semin Plast Surg 2020 Feb 15;34(1):30-37. Epub 2020 Feb 15.

Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic Surgery, Michael E. DeBakey, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

For optimal results, facial rejuvenation procedures should address both the tissue laxity and volume deflation associated with facial aging. The lift-and-fill face lift, in which fat grafting provides volumetric rejuvenation to the face while surgical lift effectively repositions and removes ptotic and redundant tissue, has revolutionized the plastic surgeon's approach to the aged face. An understanding of the intricate anatomy of distinct facial fat compartments and a systematic method to assess areas of fat atrophy and volume depletion are keys to provide patients with a natural and youthful result.

A 9-year-old Korean girl with Fontaine progeroid syndrome: a case report with further phenotypical delineation and description of clinical course during long-term follow-up.

BMC Med Genet 2019 11 27;20(1):188. Epub 2019 Nov 27.

Department of Pediatrics, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul National University Children's Hospital, 101 Daehak-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03080, South Korea.

Background: Gorlin-Chaudhry-Moss syndrome (GCMS) and Fontaine-Farriaux syndrome (FFS) are extremely rare genetic disorders that share similar clinical manifestations. Because a de novo missense mutation of the solute carrier family 25 member 24 (SLC25A24) gene was suggested to be the common genetic basis of both syndromes, it has been proposed recently that they be integrated into a single disorder under the name of Fontaine progeroid syndrome (FPS).

Indicatory external findings in two cases of fatal cervical spine injury.

J Forensic Leg Med 2020 Jan 31;69:101883. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

Institute of Forensic and Traffic Medicine, University Hospital of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany.

A fatality of an 83-year-old female experiencing acute circulatory failure as a result of a type II odontoid fracture is compared with the case of an 86-year-old female who died from delayed cardiopulmonary complications due to a lower cervical spine injury. Falls on the forehead from minor height can cause odontoid fractures especially in elderly patients, hyperextension of the neck on the other hand can lead to lower cervical spine injury with prevertebral hematoma. The latter can lead to extensive hematoma of the neck, but might be difficult to diagnose by computed tomography in the living patient. Read More

Convergent evolution in toothed whale cochleae.

BMC Evol Biol 2019 10 24;19(1):195. Epub 2019 Oct 24.

Department of Life Sciences, Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, SW7 5BD, London, UK.

Background: Odontocetes (toothed whales) are the most species-rich marine mammal lineage. The catalyst for their evolutionary success is echolocation - a form of biological sonar that uses high-frequency sound, produced in the forehead and ultimately detected by the cochlea. The ubiquity of echolocation in odontocetes across a wide range of physical and acoustic environments suggests that convergent evolution of cochlear shape is likely to have occurred. Read More

Severe Peripheral Joint Laxity is a Distinctive Clinical Feature of Spondylodysplastic-Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)- and Spondylodysplastic-EDS-.

Genes (Basel) 2019 10 12;10(10). Epub 2019 Oct 12.

Medical Genetics Unit, Maternal and Child Health Department, Azienda USL-IRCCS of Reggio Emilia, 42122 Reggio Emilia, Italy.

Variations in genes encoding for the enzymes responsible for synthesizing the linker region of proteoglycans may result in recessive conditions known as "linkeropathies". The two phenotypes related to mutations in genes and (encoding for galactosyltransferase I and II respectively) are similar, characterized by short stature, hypotonia, joint hypermobility, skeletal features and a suggestive face with prominent forehead, thin soft tissue and prominent eyes. The most outstanding feature of these disorders is the combination of severe connective tissue involvement, often manifesting in newborns and infants, and skeletal dysplasia that becomes apparent during childhood.

Distribution analysis of infantile hemangioma or capillary malformation on the head and face in Japanese patients.

J Dermatol 2019 Oct 16;46(10):849-852. Epub 2019 Aug 16.

Department of Dermatology, Wakayama Medical University, Wakayama, Japan.

Infantile hemangioma is one of the most common tumors in infancy. Delivery may be a clue for the trigger of infantile hemangioma formation in the head and face areas. In this study, we tried to plot localization of infantile hemangioma as well as capillary malformation on the head and face, and compared them to identify their characteristics and risk factors.

[Locally advanced and metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma treated with cemiplimab].

Rev Med Liege 2019 Jul;74(7-8):436-440

Service de Dermatologie, CHU Liège, Belgique.

The treatment of locally advanced or metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) essentially relies on surgery and eventually radiotherapy of the treated site and afferent lymph nodes. Unfortunately, some cases are no candidates for surgery or radiotherapy and a systemic treatment may be indicated. Chemotherapies are only partially efficacious and associated with potential toxicities. Read More

Successful treatment of frontal fibrosing alopecia with alitretinoin.

Dermatol Ther 2019 09 8;32(5):e13037. Epub 2019 Aug 8.

Department of Dermatology, Dongguk University Ilsan Hospital, College of Medicine, Dongguk University, Goyang, Korea.

Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is an inflammatory disorder characterized by scarring alopecia of the frontotemporal scalp, thinning or loss of facial hair, and facial papules. Prompt treatment is essential to prevent permanent hair loss. Although studies have reported the efficacy of oral retinoids (isotretinoin and acitretin) in FFA treatment, a therapeutic role for alitretinoin is known only for lichen planus and not for FFA.

Cutaneous neoplasms composed of melanoma and carcinoma: A rare but important diagnostic pitfall and review of the literature.

J Cutan Pathol 2020 Jan 11;47(1):36-46. Epub 2019 Aug 11.

Department of Pathology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas.

We report two cases of combined cutaneous tumors composed of melanoma and carcinoma. The first tumor presented as a 5-mm pink-blue macule over the right zygomatic arch in an 85-year-old man. Shave biopsy and immunohistochemical studies revealed that the tumor was composed of melanoma (highlighted by SOX10 and MART-1, with high Ki-67 proliferative index) intermixed with nodular basal cell carcinoma (highlighted by pan-cytokeratin and Ber-EP4).
