Reliable test of clinicians' mastery in skin cancer diagnostics.

Arch Dermatol Res 2020 Jun 28. Epub 2020 Jun 28.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Herlev and Gentofte University Hospital, Herlev Ringvej 75, Herlev, 2730, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Differentiating between benign and malignant skin lesions can be very difficult and should only be done by sufficiently trained and skilled clinicians. To our knowledge there are no validated tests for reliable assessments of clinicians' ability to perform skin cancer diagnostics. To develop and gather validity evidence for a test in skin cancer diagnostics, a multiple-choice questionnaire (MCQ) was developed based on informal interviews with seven content experts from five skin cancer centers in Denmark.

Assessment of Raman Spectroscopy for Reducing Unnecessary Biopsies for Melanoma Screening.

Molecules 2020 Jun 20;25(12). Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX 78712, USA.

A key challenge in melanoma diagnosis is the large number of unnecessary biopsies on benign nevi, which requires significant amounts of time and money. To reduce unnecessary biopsies while still accurately detecting melanoma lesions, we propose using Raman spectroscopy as a non-invasive, fast, and inexpensive method for generating a "second opinion" for lesions being considered for biopsy. We collected in vivo Raman spectral data in the clinical skin screening setting from 52 patients, including 53 pigmented lesions and 7 melanomas. Read More

Reflectance confocal microscopy. Part II. Diagnostic criteria of common benign and malignant neoplasms, dermoscopic and histopathological correlates of key confocal criteria, and diagnostic algorithms.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2020 Jun 18. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

The Kittner Skin Cancer Screening and Research Institute, Sheba Medical Center and Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel; Dermatology Service, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Center, New York, NY.

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a high-resolution, non-invasive tool currently FDA-approved for obtaining and interpreting images of the skin and cutaneous neoplasms with the goal of decreasing biopsy of benign lesions. Part II of this continuing medical education series focuses on identifying key criteria for the diagnosis of common skin cancers-melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. We contrast these findings with RCM features of common benign lesions-melanocytic nevi, solar lentigo, seborrheic keratosis, lichen planus-like keratosis, and sebaceous hyperplasia. Read More

Hereditary Haemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) Marked by ACVRL1C1120T Variant Displays Hypopigmented Naevi and Frequent Bleeding Episodes if CYP2C9 Co-Mutated: Clinical Notes & Rationale of Patient Registry.

Folia Biol (Praha) 2020 ;66(1):1-6

Biocev, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, Vestec, Czech Republic.

Hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) exhibits considerable phenotypic heterogeneity. Therefore, precise mutation screening and evaluation of patient risk must be determined in every HHT family. We present an HHT-2 case with an initial life-threatening bleeding episode that led to identification of a relatively large HHT family. Read More

Ligaclip for Preauricular Skin Tags in the Newborn.

Eur J Pediatr Surg 2020 Jun 8. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Division of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II Scuola di Medicina e Chirurgia, Federico II University, Naples, Campania, Italy.

Introduction:  Skin tags are benign lesions, that often represent only an aesthetic problem; if subjected to trauma, they can occasionally bleed with possible infection and pain. When they occur in the preauricular region, attention should be paid to the diagnosis and approach; in fact, controversy exists in the differential diagnosis between hair follicle nevi, accessory tragus, and skin tag. Misdiagnosis and failure of treatment can lead to serious consequences, such as chondritis. Read More

Deep Penetrating Nevus and Borderline-Deep Penetrating Nevus: A Literature Review.

Front Oncol 2020 20;10:837. Epub 2020 May 20.

Division of Health Care Sciences, Center for Clinical Research and Management Education, Dresden International University, Dresden, Germany.

Deep penetrating nevi (DPN) are rare melanocytic nevi, which can exhibit atypical histological features hampering the differentiation from malignant melanoma. DPN are considered benign melanocytic lesions, but rare spread to lymph nodes and unfavorable clinical outcomes associated with borderline/atypical DPN (B-DPN) has been reported. Since no guidelines are available for DPN and B-DPN, we aimed to review the literature on DPN and B-DPN to assess the management and prognosis. Read More

Use of imaging techniques for melanocytic naevi and basal cell carcinoma in integrative analysis (Review).

Exp Ther Med 2020 Jul 20;20(1):78-86. Epub 2020 Mar 20.

Department of Dermatology, 'Grigore T. Popa' University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine, 700115 Iasi, Romania.

Early detection of skin cancer is essential in order to obtain an improved prognosis. Clinicians need more objective and non-invasive examination methods to support their decision whether to biopsy or not tumoral lesions. These may include several imaging techniques such as dermoscopy, videodermoscopy, also known as sequential digital dermoscopy (SDD), computer-aided diagnosis (CAD), total body photography, imaging and high-frequency ultrasonography (HFUS), reflectance confocal microscopy, multiphoton tomography, electrical impedance spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, stepwise two-photon-laser spectroscopy and quantitative dynamic infrared.

New Therapies for Hypophosphatemia-Related to FGF23 Excess.

Calcif Tissue Int 2020 Jun 5. Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Department of Medicine Section of Endocrinology, Yale School of Medicine, PO Box 802080, New Haven, CT, 06520, USA.

FGF23 is a hormone produced by osteocytes in response to an elevation in the concentration of extracellular phosphate. Excess production of FGF23 by bone cells, or rarely by tumors, is the hormonal basis for several musculoskeletal syndromes characterized by hypophosphatemia due to renal phosphate wasting. FGF23-dependent chronic hypophosphatemia causes rickets and osteomalacia, as well as other skeletal complications. Read More

RKIP Regulates Differentiation-Related Features in Melanocytic Cells.

Cancers (Basel) 2020 Jun 3;12(6). Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Department of Cell Biology and Histology, Faculty of Medicine and Nursing, UPV/EHU, 48940 Leioa, Spain.

Raf Kinase Inhibitor Protein (RKIP) has been extensively reported as an inhibitor of key signaling pathways involved in the aggressive tumor phenotype and shows decreased expression in several types of cancers. However, little is known about RKIP in melanoma or regarding its function in normal cells. We examined the role of RKIP in both primary melanocytes and malignant melanoma cells and evaluated its diagnostic and prognostic value. Read More

Blue Nevus of The Nail: A Case Report and Review.

Dermatol Ther 2020 Jun 4:e13763. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

Department of Dermatology, University of Parma, via Gramsci 14, Parma, Italy.

Blue nevus, in all its clinical variants, rarely affects the nail bed. This leads to difficulty in the diagnosis of blue nevi within the nail bed as well as to challenges with regards to its treatment and follow up management, not solely attributed to the intrinsic difficulty of the anatomical site. We present the first case in literature of an Acquired Cellular Blue Nevus entirely confined within the nail bed, in a female caucasian patient. Read More
