Systematic Review of the Role of Mohs Micrographic Surgery in the Management of Early-Stage Melanoma of the Head and Neck.

Dermatol Surg 2021 Jun 17. Epub 2021 Jun 17.

Department of Dermatology, Medical Spectrum Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands; Department of Dermatology, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois; Department of Dermatology, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Background: The role of Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) in the management of melanoma of the head and neck (HNM) has been controversial. The authors systematically reviewed the local recurrence rate of melanoma in situ (MIS) and T1a melanomas using MMS compared with conventional wide local excision (WLE) and staged excision (SE).

Objective: To systematically review the local recurrence rate of early-stage melanomas of the HNM treated with MMS versus WLE or SE. Read More

Serial Excision for Treatment of Non-melanoma Skin Cancer.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2021 Jun 10;9(6):e3607. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, D.C.

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) has become the predominant modality of excision for non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC). Patients are referred for MMS under the assumption that it is the most effective procedure for definitive removal of the cancer while also allowing for maximal tissue preservation to achieve optimal cosmesis. The objective of this study was to investigate outcomes of serial excision (SE) as an alternative excision modality for NMSC. Read More

5-Aminolevulinic acid induced photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) for erosive adenomatosis of the nipple: a case report.

Photodiagnosis Photodyn Ther 2021 Jun 6:102387. Epub 2021 Jun 6.

Department of Dermatology, Southwest Hospital, Army Medical University (Third Military Medical University), Chongqing 400038, China.

Erosive adenomatosis of the nipple (EAN) is a very uncommon, benign neoplasm that involves the nipple. Generally, complete surgical excision is the main treatment, and we can take alternative therapeutic methods such as Mohs micrographic surgery and cryotherapy into consideration. Here, we report a case of a 40-year-old woman with a 2-year history of asymptomatic erosion, papillomatous hyperplasia and intermittent serosanguineous discharge from right nipple. Read More

High-Potency Topical Steroid Treatment of Multiple Keratoacanthomas Associated With Prurigo Nodularis.

Cutis 2021 Apr;107(4):221-222

Department of Dermatology, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City.

Patients who present with multiple keratoacanthomas (KAs) associated with prurigo nodularis often pose a treatment challenge. These lesions often require aggressive treatment, such as Mohs micrographic surgery, surgical excision, electrodesiccation and curettage, intralesional steroid injection, and long-term acitretin. 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) cream 5% has been shown to be effective; however, topical options are limited when 5-FU fails.

Auricular reconstruction after Mohs micrographic surgery: analysis of 101 cases.

An Bras Dermatol 2021 Jun 2. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Dermatology Service, Hospital de Clínicas, Universidade Federal do Paraná, Curitiba, PR, Brazil; Postgraduate Program in Internal Medicine and Health Sciences, Universidade Federal do Paraná, Curitiba, PR, Brazil; Private Practice, Curitiba, PR, Brazil.

Background: The ear is a region that has a high prevalence of cutaneous carcinomas and several guidelines indicate Mohs micrographic surgery as the first-choice treatment in such cases. Although the technique allows maximum preservation of healthy tissue, many auricular surgical wounds constitute a challenge due to the peculiar local anatomy, with evident curves and reliefs. Auricular reconstruction should prioritize function before aesthetics, but without leaving the latter aside, since postoperative distortions can have a significant psychological impact. Read More

Skeletal muscle regeneration in post-myofascial flap reconstruction specimens mimicking sarcoma: A potential diagnostic pitfall.

J Cutan Pathol 2021 Jun 4. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Department of Dermatology, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, Iowa, USA.

Skeletal muscle regeneration (SMR) encompasses a sequence of events that unfolds after injury to muscle fibers. Nearby satellite cells become activated and function as precursor muscle cells by proliferating and differentiating into myoblasts, which eventually fuse to form myotubes and ultimately mature muscle fibers. Compared to other forms of mesenchymal repair, SMR has higher morphologic heterogeneity with the potential to show histopathologic similarities to sarcomas and other malignancies. Read More

Recognition, Staging, and Management of Melanoma.

Med Clin North Am 2021 Jul;105(4):643-661

Department of Dermatology, Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA 02466, USA. Electronic address:

Melanoma accounts for approximately 1% of all skin cancers but contributes to almost all skin cancer deaths. The developing picture suggests that melanoma phenotypes are driven by epigenetic mechanisms that reflect a complex interplay between genotype and environment. Furthermore, the growing consensus is that current classification standards, notwithstanding pertinent clinical history and appropriate biopsy, fall short of capturing the vast complexity of the disease.

Melanoma In Situ: A Critical Review and Re-Evaluation of Current Excision Margin Recommendations.

Adv Ther 2021 May 28. Epub 2021 May 28.

Melanoma Institute Australia, The University of Sydney, 40 Rocklands Road, North Sydney, NSW, 2060, Australia.

Most international clinical guidelines recommend 5-10 mm clinical margins for excision of melanoma in situ (MIS). While the evidence supporting this is weak, these guidelines are generally consistent. However, as a result of the high incidence of subclinical extension of MIS, especially of the lentigo maligna (LM) subtype, wider margins will often be needed to achieve complete histologic clearance.
