Department of Orthopaedics, Chiayi Christian Hospital, Chiayi, Taiwan.

Epidermal inclusion cyst is a benign lesion that commonly occurs due to inclusion of epidermal cells into the dermal or deeper layers in a trauma event. Percutaneous release is a minimally invasive technique, and good surgical outcomes can be achieved. However, the percutaneous procedure is a puncture injury, and the epidermal inclusion cyst is reasonable to become a possible complication. Read More

Sensation-Sparing Correction of Inverted Nipples Using the 'Drawbridge' Flap Approach.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

St. Andrew's Centre for Plastic Surgery and Burns, Chelmsford, UK.

Introduction: An inverted nipple can cause significant functional and psychologic disturbance to women. The holy grail of any surgical technique to correct this is to restore adequate nipple projection and at the same time, try to preserve lactation and nipple sensation. We describe our experience using an inferior dermal nipple-areolar interposition flap to correct the inverted nipple alongside with selective release of the lactiferous ducts of the nipple.

Primary cutaneous mycotic cysts are uncommon dermal or subcutaneous fungal lesions. The most commonly implicated organisms are species within a heterogeneous group of pigmented fungi called dematiaceous fungi. Mycotic cysts usually present as solitary lesions and can be caused by traumatic introduction of fungal elements by foreign bodies or present as a cutaneous manifestation of systemic fungal infections, especially in immunocompromised patients.

Division of Neurosurgery, IRCCS Istituto Giannina Gaslini, Genoa, Italy.

Background: Dermoid and epidermoid cysts are among the most frequent lesions of the scalp in the pediatric population. Optimal management of a suspected dermoid or epidermoid cyst in children is debated: Some authors advocate conservative management on the basis of the benign histology of these entities, while others prefer surgical excision.

Objective: Our objective is to demonstrate that excision of dermoid and epidermoid cysts is a safe procedure and that early surgery is effective in preventing potential complications related to cyst growth. Read More

Subcutaneous scalp nodule as the presenting symptom of systemic light-chain amyloidosis.

Dermatol Pract Concept 2018 Jul 31;8(3):184-187. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN, USA.

We present a case of subcutaneous nodular amyloidosis mimicking a pilar cyst. Further evaluation led to the diagnosis of malignant systemic light-chain amyloidosis. The epidemiology and histopathological features of light-chain amyloidosis with cutaneous involvement are reviewed, as well as current recommendations for initial evaluation. Read More

Somatic ERK activation during transit amplification is essential for maintaining the synchrony of germline divisions in testis.

Open Biol 2018 Jul;8(7)

Department of Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai 400005, India

Transit amplification (TA) of progenitor cells maintains tissue homeostasis by balancing proliferation and differentiation. In testis, the germline proliferation is tightly regulated by factors present in both the germline and the neighbouring somatic cyst cells (SCCs). Although the exact mechanism is unclear, the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activation in SCCs has been reported to control spermatogonial divisions within a cyst, through downstream activations of Rac1-dependent pathways.

Analysis of KRT1, KRT10, KRT19, TP53 and MMP9 expression in pediatric and adult cholesteatoma.

PLoS One 2018 18;13(7):e0200840. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Department of Human Genetics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Debrecen, Debrecen, Hungary.

Cholesteatoma is an epidermal cyst with still unknown pathomechanism. The aim of the current study was to investigate molecular differences in the background of the hyperproliferative property and aggressive behavior typical of the cholesteatoma epithelium. The expression of three cytokeratin genes (KRT1, KRT10 and KRT19), the matrix metalloproteinase 9 gene (MMP9) and the tumor suppressor TP53 gene was measured by qRT-PCR in surgical samples of pediatric and adult cholesteatoma cases and their expression level was compared to that of normal skin samples from the retroauricular region of control individuals.

Plasma Exeresis Treatment for Epidermoid Cysts: A Minimal Scarring Technique.

Dermatol Surg 2018 Dec;44(12):1509-1515

All authors are affiliated with the Dermatology Unit, Surgical, Medical and Dental Department of Morphological Sciences Related to Transplant, Oncology and Regenerative Medicine, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy.

Background: Epidermoid cysts are cutaneous benign tumors commonly seen in young or middle-aged adults. Plasma exeresis is an innovative technique for several skin conditions: it causes ionization of the atmospheric gas between the proximal tip of the device and the tissue to be treated, creating sublimation of the tissue.

Objective: To remove the cyst with a novel technique that allows a good cosmetic result. Read More

Cutaneous Adnexal Cysts Revisited: What We Know and What We Think We Know.

Dermatopathology (Basel) 2018 Apr-Jun;5(2):79-85. Epub 2018 Jun 7.

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

Cutaneous cysts have been classified by dermatopathologists in many different ways. Here, we propose a novel classification of cutaneous adnexal cysts according to their origin in the folliculosebaceous unit and the sweat glands. By examining the lining of the cystic structure, its origin can be easily identified. Read More

A new biomarker for the early diagnosis of ovarian torsion: SCUBE-1.

Clin Exp Reprod Med 2018 Jun 29;45(2):94-99. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Department of Clinical Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine, Harran University, Sanliurfa, Turkey.

Objective: Prompt diagnosis and management are essential for saving the adnexal organs from infarction in cases of ovarian torsion (OT). This study aimed to determine the diagnostic significance of signal peptide, complement C1r/C1s, Uegf, and Bmp1 (CUB), and epidermal growth factor-like domain-containing protein-1 (SCUBE-1) levels in cases of OT, an emergent ischemic condition, and the relationship of SCUBE-1 with oxidative stress parameters.

Methods: This prospective study was conducted among 15 OT patients and 20 age- and gravidity-matched healthy women. Read More

[Epidermoid Cyst in the Fourth Ventricle:Report of One Case].

Zhongguo Yi Xue Ke Xue Yuan Xue Bao 2018 Jun;40(3):436-438

Department of Radiology,Hainan Branch of Chinese PLA General Hospital,Sanya,Hainan 572013,China.

We reported a case with epidermoid cyst (EC) in the fourth ventricle. The insinuation and scalloping growth pattern were the distinctive imaging characteristics of EC in the fourth ventricle on magnetic resonance imaging. The accurate identification of the punctate enhancement of vessels around the lesion may be helpful for its differential diagnosis from hemangioblastoma. Read More
