Current controversies in early-stage melanoma: Questions on management and surveillance.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2019 Jan;80(1):15-25

Department of Dermatology, University of Utah Health Sciences Center, Salt Lake City, Utah; Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah Health Sciences Center, Salt Lake City, Utah. Electronic address:

There are a number of controversies and uncertainties relating to the management and surveillance of patients with early-stage, localized (ie, stage 0, I, and II) cutaneous melanoma. While tumor stage is a critical predictor of clinical outcome and guides treatment, accurate determination of stage may be affected by the biopsy technique used and the method of sectioning before histologic review. A new molecular prognostic test is available but has not been formally incorporated into staging or treatment guidelines. Read More

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Dermatology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.

Chemical peeling, or chemexfoliation, has been used for centuries to improve signs of ultraviolet light-induced sun damage. Over the last 30 years, the science behind chemical peeling has evolved, increasing our understanding of the role of peeling ingredients and treatment indications. The depth of peels is directly related to improved results and to the number of complications that can occur. Read More

Advanced chemical peels: phenol-croton oil peel.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Dermatology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.

Once considered the gold standard for deep facial resurfacing, the classical Baker-Gordon phenol-croton oil peel has largely been replaced by formulas with lower concentrations of phenol and croton oil. The improved safety profile of deep peels has ushered in a new era in chemical peeling. Wrinkles can be improved and skin tightened with more subtle and natural results. Read More

Part I - Emerging Imaging Technologies in Dermatology: Basic Principles.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Chairman and Clarence S. Livingood Chair, Department of Dermatology, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Michigan. Electronic address:

Dermatologists rely primarily on clinical examination in combination with histopathology to diagnose conditions; however, clinical examination alone may not be sufficient for accurate diagnosis and skin biopsies have associated morbidity. With continued technological advancement, there are emerging ancillary imaging technologies available to dermatologists to aid in diagnosis and management. This two-part review article will discuss these emerging technologies including: digital photographic imaging, confocal microscopy, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and high frequency ultrasound (HFUS) as well as several additional modalities in development.

Center for Clinical Studies, Houston, TX, USA; Department of Dermatology, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Houston, TX, USA.

In 1964, the first human oncovirus, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), was identified in Burkitt lymphoma cells. Since then, six other human oncoviruses have been identified: human papillomavirus (HPV), Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV), hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV and HCV), human T-cell lymphotropic virus-1 (HTLV-1), and human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8). These viruses are causally linked to 12% of all cancers, many of which have mucocutaneous manifestations. Read More
