Dermoscopy of cutaneous adnexal tumors: a systematic review of the literature.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2022 May 10. Epub 2022 May 10.

Centro Oncologico ad Alta Tecnologia Diagnostica, Azienda Unità Sanitaria Locale - IRCCS di Reggio Emilia, Italy.

Cutaneous adnexal tumors (ATs) encompass a variegated group of hamartomas and benign or malignant tumors, originating from the hair follicle, sebaceous, eccrine or apocrine glands that may simulate other cutaneous neoplasms. This study aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the spectrum of clinical and dermoscopic features of ATs, to better define these lesions and assist in differential diagnosis. We performed a two-step systematic search of literature in PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases from inception until September 4, 2020. Read More

Development of a targeted gene panel for the diagnosis of Gorlin syndrome.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2022 Apr 15. Epub 2022 Apr 15.

Department of Biochemistry, Tokyo Dental College, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan. Electronic address:

Gorlin syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disease caused by mutations in the PTCH1, PTCH2, and SUFU genes. Each symptom of the disease has a different time point of onset, which makes early diagnosis based solely on symptoms challenging. In this study, a gene panel was developed to overcome the challenges in the diagnosis of Gorlin syndrome and allow diagnosis using a single test. Read More

Metastatic Basal Cell Carcinoma Arising From a Primary Cutaneous Carcinosarcoma.

Oncology (Williston Park) 2021 12 20;35(12):812-815. Epub 2021 Dec 20.

University of Missouri Department of Dermatology.

Primary cutaneous carcinosarcoma is a rare malignant tumor composed of both an epithelial and mesenchymal cell population. We present a case of a man, aged 56 years, found to have a 26-mm exophytic lesion on the vertex scalp identified to contain a distinct population of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) as well as another population of spindled cells representing a poorly differentiated sarcomatous component. Five years after the removal of the primary lesion, the patient presented with metastatic BCC to the right scalp, right cervical nodes, lung, and rib. Read More

Clinical and pathological features associated with high-risk, multiple, and recurrent basal cell carcinomas: a retrospective cohort analysis from the Levantine coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

Arch Dermatol Res 2022 Jan 21. Epub 2022 Jan 21.

Dermatology department, School of Medicine, Université Saint-Joseph, and Hôtel-Dieu de France University Hospital, Hôtel-Dieu de France, Boulevard Alfred Naccache, Beirut, 16-6830, Lebanon.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) data coming from the Levantine coast of the Mediterranean Sea are limited. The study aimed to primarily analyze the demographic, clinical, pathological, and prognostic characteristics of BCC in this region of the world and secondarily identify features associated with high-risk, recurrent, or multiple BCCs. Patients with at least one diagnosis of BCC registered in the pathology department between January 2015 and December 2019 were included in this analytical retrospective single-center cohort study.

Real-world assessment and treatment of locally advanced basal cell carcinoma: Findings from the RegiSONIC disease registry.

PLoS One 2022 14;17(1):e0262151. Epub 2022 Jan 14.

Dermatology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York, United States of America.

Background: Limited information is available regarding real-world treatment patterns and their effectiveness and safety in patients with locally advanced basal cell carcinoma, including patients not typically represented in clinical trials. The purpose of the current study was to describe how clinicians diagnose and treat locally advanced basal cell carcinoma in the United States.

Methods: This prospective, multicenter, observational registry study included patients with newly diagnosed, Hedgehog pathway inhibitor-naive locally advanced basal cell carcinoma without basal cell carcinoma nevus syndrome (n = 433) treated at 75 US academic and community practices, including dermatology, Mohs surgery, and medical oncology sites.

MTA-SE Hereditary Tumors Research Group, Eötvös Loránd Research Network, Budapest, Hungary.

Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS) or nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is a rare tumour-overgrowth syndrome associated with multiple developmental anomalies and a wide variety of tumours. Here, we describe a case of a man aged 23 years with GGS with bilateral giant tumours adjacent to both adrenals that raised the suspicion of malignancy on imaging. Histological analysis of both surgically resected tumours revealed perivascular epitheloid cell tumours (PEComas) that were independent of the adrenals. Read More

Evaluation of Hedgehog Pathway Inhibition on Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome Fibroblasts and Basal Cell Carcinoma-Associated Fibroblasts: Are Vismodegib and Sonidegib Useful to Target Cancer-Prone Fibroblasts?

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Nov 22;13(22). Epub 2021 Nov 22.

Laboratory of Cutaneous Physiopathology and Integrated Center of Metabolomics Research, San Gallicano Dermatological Institute, IRCCS, 00144 Rome, Italy.

Activating mutations in the Hh pathway underlies the development of sporadic and familial skin BCC. For these oncogenic proliferations displaying ligand-independent activation of the intracellular pathway, two molecules have been approved for therapeutic purposes: vismodegib and sonidegib. Improper Hh signalling occurs in many human tumours also via a paracrine mechanism (ligand-dependent) in which the secretion of Hh ligands by stromal cells support tumour growth. Read More

Basal Cell Carcinoma and Sebaceoma Within Nevus Sebaceous of the Scalp.

Cureus 2021 Oct 9;13(10):e18632. Epub 2021 Oct 9.

Pathology, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland, USA.

This case describes the occurrence of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and sebaceoma within a nevus sebaceous (NV), which has not yet been previously reported. This is significant to dermatologists as it emphasizes the importance of close monitoring of benign sebaceous nevi in the event that malignant transformation occurs, although such occurrences are rare. Prompt consideration for prophylactic excision of NS is warranted prior to malignant transformation. Read More

Sporadic Cutaneous Keratocyst of the Scalp: A Report of an Extremely Rare Lesion.

Cureus 2021 Nov 2;13(11):e19206. Epub 2021 Nov 2.

General Surgery, Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah, SAU.

Keratocysts, which are benign cystic lesions that usually arise in the jawbones, particularly the mandible, can rarely occur in the skin and soft tissues. Odontogenic keratocysts, which are keratocysts in the jaw, are considered hallmarks of nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS). In contrast, cutaneous keratocysts (CKCs), which can occur in association with NBCCS, are rare. Read More

A nationwide study of the incidence and trends of first and multiple basal cell carcinomas in the Netherlands and prediction of future incidence.

Br J Dermatol 2022 03 27;186(3):476-484. Epub 2021 Dec 27.

Department of Research and Development, Netherlands Comprehensive Cancer Organisation (IKNL), Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Background: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy worldwide and an ever increasing annual incidence is observed. However, nationwide registries of BCCs are very rare, and often extrapolation of the data has been necessary to estimate the absolute number of diagnoses. As of September 2016, all histopathologically confirmed BCCs are registered in the Netherlands, due to developments in automatic notification and import in the Netherlands Cancer Registry. Read More

Background: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most commonly occurring neoplasm in patients with Gorlin syndrome. It is widely accepted that multiple basal cell carcinomas simultaneously develop in middle-aged patients with this syndrome. However, the presence of driver genes other than the PTCH1 in Gorlin syndrome has not been explored. Read More

Department of Human and Molecular Genetics, Virginia Commonwealth University Health System, Richmond, VA, USA.

Background: Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is a rare genetic disorder associated with basal cell carcinomas (BCC), skeletal anomalies, and jaw cysts, and a number of ocular abnormalities. We describe a case of a 12-year-old boy diagnosed with NBCCS found to have several ophthalmic manifestations including a myelinated retinal nerve fiber. We conducted a literature review targeting the ocular and systemic manifestations of NBCCS, with a focus on the ophthalmic findings that have not been well characterized. Read More
