    Classification of the clinical images for benign and malignant cutaneous tumors using a deep learning algorithm.
    J Invest Dermatol 2018 Feb 8. Epub 2018 Feb 8.
    Department of Dermatology, Asan Medical Center, Ulsan University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea. Electronic address:
    We tested the use of a deep learning algorithm to classify the clinical images of 12 skin diseases-basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, intraepithelial carcinoma, actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, malignant melanoma, melanocytic nevus, lentigo, pyogenic granuloma, hemangioma, dermatofibroma, and wart. The convolutional neural network (Microsoft ResNet-152 model) was fine-tuned with images from the training portion of the Asan dataset, MED-NODE dataset, and atlas site images (20,826 images in total). The trained model was validated with the testing portion of the Asan, Hallym and Edinburgh datasets. Read More

    Localized Gingival Overgrowths: A Report of Six Cases.
    Contemp Clin Dent 2017 Oct-Dec;8(4):667-671
    Department of Periodontics, Guru Nanak Institute of Dental Sciences and Research, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
    Localized gingival overgrowths are commonly encountered in our day-to-day clinical practice and often present a diagnostic dilemma to the clinicians. These lesions vary depending on the location, site, extent, histology, and/or etiopathology. Although most of the localized gingival enlargements represent the reactive lesion to plaque accumulation, the differential diagnosis ranges from peripheral fibroma to pyogenic granuloma to peripheral fibroma with ossification and/or calcification, peripheral giant cell granuloma, etc. Read More

Although rare, it is the most common subtype of melanoma found in patients of African or Asian ethnicity and has a poor prognosis, often because of the more advanced stage of presentation at diagnosis. In the second of this two-part series, we review the clinical presentation, histopathology, diagnosis and management of AM. Read More

    Acral angioosteoma cutis: A rare case.
    Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2017 Nov 1. Epub 2017 Nov 1.
    Department of Pathology, Kırklareli State Hospital, Kırklareli, Turkey.
    Acral angioosteoma cutis is a rare and benign cutaneous lesion clinically characterized by an exophytic growth resembling pyogenic granuloma on the acral skin; first described in 2006. Its pathogenesis is still unclear while well-formed capillaries, pale stroma, bland fibroblast-like cells, and multiple tiny spicules of woven bone constitute the histological hallmarks. Here, we present a case of acral angioosteoma cutis in a 34-year-old man to increase awareness regarding this rare condition. Read More

    Extragingival Pregnancy Pyogenic Granuloma on the Lip.
    J Craniofac Surg 2018 Jan;29(1):e49-e50
    School of Medicine, University of Seville, Virgen del Rocio University Hospital, Seville, Spain.
    Pregnancy pyogenic granuloma is considered a benign common growth that usually develops on the gingiva in the second and third trimester of gestation, in response to local irritation, trauma or hormonal factors. Here, the authors report a case of a primigravida who presented an extragingival pyogenic granuloma with a rapid progression in the post-partum. The occurrence on the lower lip in the first few days after delivery was a relatively rarity in the present case which provoked a meaningful state of anxiety and cancerophobia to the female.

    A Research of Pyogenic Granuloma Genesis Factor With Immunohistochemical Analysis.
    J Craniofac Surg 2017 Nov;28(8):2068-2072
    *Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery †Department of Pathology, College of Medicine, Soonchunhyang University, Cheonan, Republic of Korea.
    Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a type of vascular tumor for which the growth mechanism is poorly understood. Estrogen and progesterone may influence vascular malformations by increasing neovascularization in the lesions. Pregnancy tumor is a term for PG that occurs on the gingival mucosa of pregnant women in response to local irritation or injury. Read More

    Masses of the Nose, Nasal Cavity, and Nasopharynx in Children.
    Radiographics 2017 Oct;37(6):1704-1730
    From the Department of Radiology, Nationwide Children's Hospital, 700 Children's Dr, Columbus, OH 43205 (D.P.R.); and Department of Radiology, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio (E.S.O., B.L.K.).

These lesions may arise from the nasal ala or other structures of the nose, including the mucosa covering any surface of the nasal cavity, the cartilaginous or osseous portion of the nasal septum, the nasal turbinates, and the nasal bones. Lesions may also arise from the nasopharynx or adjacent structures and involve the nose by way of direct extension. Read More

    Soft Tissue Applications of Er,Cr:YSGG Laser in Pediatric Dentistry.
    Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2017 Apr-Jun;10(2):188-192. Epub 2017 Jun 1.
    Professor and Principal, Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Eklavya Dental College, Kothputli, Rajasthan, India.
    Soft tissue laser, such as diode and Nd:YAG lasers were initially used in soft tissue lesions because of its increased success rate. It was because of the fact that these lasers were well-absorbed by chromophores, such as hemoglobin and melanin which are found abundant in the oral mucosa. The introduction of erbium family in 1990 comprising the Er:YAG and Er,Cr:YSGG lasers made the hard tissue laser a boon for dentistry. Read More

    Division of Cancer Biology, National Cancer Center Research Institute, Tokyo, Japan.
    Human angiosarcoma is a rare malignant vascular tumor associated with extremely poor clinical outcome and generally arising in skin of the head and neck region. However, little is known about the molecular pathogeneses and useful immunohistochemical markers of angiosarcoma. To investigate the mechanisms of angiosarcoma progression, we collected 85 cases of human angiosarcoma specimens with clinical records and analyzed ISO-HAS-B patient-derived angiosarcoma cells.

    A Comparative Study of CSF Viral RNA Loads between HIV Positive Patients with Neurological Manifestations and Neurologically Asymptomatic HIV Patients.
    J Assoc Physicians India 2017 Aug;65(8):14-17
    Assistant Professor, Microbiology, JNUIMSRC, Jaipur, Rajasthan.
    Introduction: There are conflicting reports in literature about correlation of CSF viral RNA levels with neurological manifestations in HIV positive patients. Many studies in animals and human subjects have shown that CSF HIV-1 RNA can be useful as a specific marker of HIV induced neuropathology. To the contrary there are studies which show that neurological disease states can occur in absence of significant increase of CSF HIV RNA. Read More

    Clinical and sonographic features of pediatric soft-tissue vascular anomalies part 1: classification, sonographic approach and vascular tumors.
    Pediatr Radiol 2017 Aug 4;47(9):1184-1195. Epub 2017 Aug 4.
    Department of Diagnostic Imaging, The Hospital for Sick Children, 555 University Ave., Toronto, ON, M5G 1X8, Canada.
    Sonography can be used in the management of pediatric soft-tissue vascular anomalies for diagnosing, for assessing lesion extent and for evaluating complications and response to therapy. The sonographic technique includes a combination of gray-scale imaging with color and spectral Doppler techniques. However the interpretation of the sonographic findings requires correlation with the clinical findings, some of which can be easily obtained at the time of scanning. Read More

    Sebaceous gland carcinoma of the ocular adnexa - variability in clinical and histological appearance with analysis of immunohistochemical staining patterns.
    Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2017 Nov 24;255(11):2277-2285. Epub 2017 Jul 24.
