The role of radiation therapy in the management of cutaneous malignancies. Part II: When is radiation therapy indicated?

J Am Acad Dermatol 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Departments of Dermatology and Head and Neck Surgery, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer, Houston, Texas, USA.

Radiation therapy may be performed for a variety of cutaneous malignancies depending on patient health status, tumor clinical and histologic features, patient preference, and resource availability. Dermatologists should be able to recognize the clinical scenarios in which radiation therapy is appropriate as this may reduce morbidity, decrease risk of disease recurrence, and improve quality of life. The second article in this 2-part continuing medical education series focuses on the most common indications for radiation therapy in the treatment of basal cell carcinoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, Merkel cell carcinoma, Kaposi sarcoma, angiosarcoma, cutaneous lymphoma, melanoma, undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, and sebaceous carcinoma.

Treatment-resistant actinic keratoses are characterized by distinct clinical and histological features.

Ital J Dermatol Venerol 2021 Apr;156(2):213-219

Faculty of Health, University Witten-Herdecke, Witten, Germany.

Background: Actinic keratoses (AK) are generally treated to reduce the risk of progression into invasive cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC). However, this risk of transformation is low, and rather than focusing on these lesions, current treatment studies report on complete clearance of AKs in an entire field. This study aimed to investigate treatment-resistant AKs (trAK) after field therapy compared to randomly chosen AKs prior to treatment. Read More

MLH1 epimutation is a rare mechanism for Lynch syndrome: A case report and review of the literature.

Genes Chromosomes Cancer 2021 May 2. Epub 2021 May 2.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Sinai Health System and University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Endometrial carcinoma is one of the prototypical malignancies associated with Lynch syndrome, an inherited cancer syndrome most commonly caused by germline mutations in DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes, although rare alternative mechanisms also exist. In this report, we describe a patient first diagnosed with colorectal cancer at age 33, then vulvar squamous cell carcinoma, facial sebaceous adenoma/sebaceoma, and finally endometrial carcinoma at age 52. All tumors were MLH1/PMS2-deficient by immunohistochemistry, and MLH1 promoter methylation was identified in the endometrial cancer. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India.

Recurrent chalazion may be associated with bad lid hygiene but can have clinical changes which lead to the suspicion of a more dangerous entity. Particularly in elderly patients, recurrence of chalazion should be suspected to have carcinomatous changes.

A modified method for upper eyelid reconstruction with innervated orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flaps and lower lip mucosal grafts.

JPRAS Open 2021 Jun 24;28:131-139. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Department of Plastic Surgery, National Hospital Organization Osaka National Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

Background: Numerous reports have described methods for repairing full-thickness upper eyelid defects using lower eyelid tissue. To avoid sacrificing the lower eyelid and thereby prevent lower eyelid sagging or dysfunction, we used innervated orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flaps harvested from the upper eyelid for upper eyelid reconstruction.

Methods: We modified a method reported by Moschella and Cordova for repairing full-thickness upper eyelid defects using innervated bipedicled orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flaps mobilized from the upper eyelid and labial mucosal grafts. Read More

An implant-retained auricular prosthesis complicated by a modified temporal bone resection.

J Prosthet Dent 2021 Apr 17. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Professor Emeritus, Division of Advanced Prosthodontics, UCLA School of Dentistry, Los Angeles, Calif.

A patient underwent a modified temporal bone resection and total auriculectomy to remove a sebaceous carcinoma arising from the tragus of the right auricle that extended into the external auditory meatus. Because the tumor extended into the temporal bone, the osseous sites originally selected for immediate placement of the craniofacial implants were resected and no longer available. Subsequently, after an appropriate period of healing, implants were placed into the residual temporal bone, considerably more superior and posterior to the external auditory meatus such that they emerged through hair-bearing skin.

Department and Clinic of Animal Surgery, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Life Sciences in Lublin, 20-612 Lublin, Poland.

Perianal gland tumors are modified sebaceous glands present in the skin of the perianal region in the dog. Hormonal stimulation may induce hyperplasia of the perianal glands or their neoplastic progression. The presence of androgen (AR) and estrogen (ER) receptors have been demonstrated both in normal perianal glands as well as in perianal tumors. Read More
