    Erythromelalgia involving the face.
    Dermatol Online J 2017 Apr 15;23(4). Epub 2017 Apr 15.
    Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.
    Erythromelalgia is a rare disorder characterized by burning pain, erythema, and increased temperature typically involving the distal extremities. Although it can progress to involve the face, erythromelalgia presenting only on the face is particularly rare. This disorder is often misdiagnosed when it presents on the extremities and is even more likely to be misdiagnosed when presenting only on the face, delaying appropriate treatment and causing considerable frustration for the patient.

    Updating the diagnosis, classification and assessment of rosacea by effacement of subtypes.
    Br J Dermatol 2017 May 6. Epub 2017 May 6.
    Tan, et al.,(ROSCO) propose to "transition beyond a subtype classification", which they ascribe to the National Rosacea Society's Classification of Rosacea (NRSCOR), asserting "Subtype classification may not fully cover the range of clinical presentations and is likely to confound severity assessment, whereas a phenotype-based approach could improve patient outcomes by addressing an individual patient's clinical presentation and concerns"(1). NRSCOR did not invent the phenotypic subtypes, described by expert dermatologists over preceding decades, but sought a common terminology for use in communicating ideas about rosacea (compare use in Fig. Read More

    Department of Dermatology, Andreas Syggros Hospital, University of Athens, 5, Dragoumi str, Athens, 16121, Greece. Electronic address:
    Facial erythema (the "red face") is a straightforward clinical finding, and it is evident even to the untrained eye; however, a red face does not represent a single cutaneous entity. It may be due to a plethora of distinct underlying conditions of varying severity, including rosacea, demodicosis, dermatomyositis, lupus erythematosus, allergic contact dermatitis, drug-induced erythema, and emotional blushing. In clinical practice, dermatologists do not encounter only one type of facial erythema but rather a number of different shades of red. Read More
