Nutrients 2018 Nov 28;10(12). Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Nutrition Science Solutions, LLC, Wimberley, 78676 TX, USA.

Less than 10% of most Western populations consume adequate levels of whole fruits and dietary fiber with typical intake being about half of the recommended levels. Evidence of the beneficial health effects of consuming adequate levels of whole fruits has been steadily growing, especially regarding their bioactive fiber prebiotic effects and role in improved weight control, wellness and healthy aging. The primary aim of this narrative review article is to examine the increasing number of health benefits which are associated with the adequate intake of whole fruits, especially fruit fiber, throughout the human lifecycle.

Male Genital Dermatology: A Primer for the Sexual Medicine Physician.

Sex Med Rev 2018 Nov 17. Epub 2018 Nov 17.

Tulane University School of Medicine, Department of Urology, New Orleans, LA, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: The dermatologic conditions affecting the male genitalia are diverse and range from normal variants and benign growths to overt malignancy. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of urologic dermatology training in most residency programs, and many dermatologic lesions with a classic appearance on other areas of the body may have atypical presentations on the genitalia. Patients may present to a variety of physicians without receiving a definitive diagnosis, which can be highly distressing to the afflicted individual. Read More

Fusing fine-tuned deep features for skin lesion classification.

Comput Med Imaging Graph 2018 Nov 3;71:19-29. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

School of Technology and Health, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.

Malignant melanoma is one of the most aggressive forms of skin cancer. Early detection is important as it significantly improves survival rates. Consequently, accurate discrimination of malignant skin lesions from benign lesions such as seborrheic keratoses or benign nevi is crucial, while accurate computerised classification of skin lesion images is of great interest to support diagnosis.

Skin Lesion Analysis By Multi-Target Deep Neural Networks.

Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc 2018 Jul;2018:1263-1266

Automatic skin lesion analysis involves two critical steps: lesion segmentation and lesion classification. In this work, we propose a novel multi-target deep convolutional neural network (DCNN) to simultaneously tackle the problem of segmentation and classification. Based on U-Net and GoogleNet, a single model is constructed with three different targets of both lesion segmentation and two independent binary lesion classifications (i. Read More

Anatomic Site-Specific Treatment Response With 40% Hydrogen Peroxide (w/w) Topical Formulation for Raised Seborrheic Keratoses: Pooled Analysis of Data from Two Phase 3 Studies.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Oct;17(10):1092-1098

Objective: Seborrheic keratoses (SKs) may present in any non-glabrous skin, but data are limited on the response to treatment as based on the SK location. We aimed to understand the relationship between SK location and clearance with up to 2 treatments of 40% (w/w) hydrogen peroxide topical solution (HP40).

Methods: We conducted a sub-analysis of data pooled from two randomized, double-blind, vehicle (VEH)-controlled clinical trials, including 937 patients, each with 4 target SKs (N=3,748 SKs), with at least 1 on the face and 1 on the trunk or extremities. Read More

Medical Image Classification Based on Deep Features Extracted by Deep Model and Statistic Feature Fusion with Multilayer Perceptron.

Comput Intell Neurosci 2018 12;2018:2061516. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Computer Science and Engineering, South China University of Technology, Guangzhou 510006, China.

Medical image classification is a key technique of Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems. Traditional methods rely mainly on the shape, color, and/or texture features as well as their combinations, most of which are problem-specific and have shown to be complementary in medical images, which leads to a system that lacks the ability to make representations of high-level problem domain concepts and that has poor model generalization ability. Recent deep learning methods provide an effective way to construct an end-to-end model that can compute final classification labels with the raw pixels of medical images. Read More

Managing Seborrheic Keratosis: Evolving Strategies and Optimal Therapeutic Outcomes.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Sep;17(9):933-940

Seborrheic keratosis (SK) is the most common skin tumor seen by dermatologists in everyday practice. Although the lesions are mostly benign, many patients still elect to have asymptomatic SK removed. The historical standards of treatment are cryosurgery and electrocautery, two surgical options that are effective at lesion removal but have high rates of postoperative adverse events such as treatment-site scarring and pigmentary alterations.

Diagnosing Pemphigus Foliaceus: A Rare Blistering Disease Masquerading as a Common Dermatologic Disorder.

Mil Med 2018 Sep 12. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Dermatology, San Antonio Military Health System, 3551 Roger Brooke Drive, San Antonio, TX.

Pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is an autoimmune dermatologic disease that typically presents with painful, superficial blisters that evolve into scaling erosions in a seborrheic distribution. This case study intends to demonstrate that due to the relative scarcity of the disease and its distribution on the body, PF can easily be misdiagnosed. We present a 43-year-old African American male that presented to the dermatology clinic with an 18-month history of non-pruritic, violaceous, scaling patches and plaques most prominent on the malar cheeks, upper chest and upper back.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2018 10;6:2050313X18795071. Epub 2018 Sep 10.

Division of Dermatology, The Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Darier's disease, an autosomal dominant genodermatosis, arises from a mutation in the gene that codes for sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca-ATPase in the endoplasmic reticulum and is characterized by greasy keratotic papules commonly found in seborrheic regions. Conventional treatments, including topical corticosteroids, antibiotics, antifungals and retinoids, often have limited efficacy. The present article reports the novel use of oral magnesium chloride supplementation (300 mg daily) in the treatment of Darier disease. Read More

Scalp Itch: A Systematic Review.

Skin Appendage Disord 2018 Aug 29;4(3):187-199. Epub 2017 Nov 29.

Fredric Brandt Endowed Professor of Dermatology, University of Miami, Miami, FL, USA.

Scalp itch is a frequent complaint in the dermatological setting. It is common for the dermatologist to encounter patients with no evident cause of scalp pruritus, making it a distressing situation for both the clinician and the patient. The aim of this paper is to propose a systematic approach to scalp itch, which classifies scalp pruritus into two types: (1) with or (2) without dermatological lesions, and presence or absence of hair loss.

An Bras Dermatol 2018 Sep-Oct;93(5):746-748

Dermatology Unit, Hospital das Clinicas, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte (MG), Brazil.

Although wound or traumatic myiasis is common in tropical countries, only recently cases associated with underlying dermatoses, such as seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis, have been reported. We describe a patient with seborrheic dermatitis and an ulcerated lesion on the scalp, in which the dermatological examination with the aid of dermoscopy allowed the identification of larvae (maggots) compatible with infestation by Cochliomyia hominivorax. Treatment was performed with oral and topical ivermectin, followed by manual extraction of the larvae. Read More

JunB defines functional and structural integrity of the epidermo-pilosebaceous unit in the skin.

Nat Commun 2018 08 24;9(1):3425. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Department of Dermatology and Allergic Diseases, Ulm University, Ulm, 89081, Germany.

Transcription factors ensure skin homeostasis via tight regulation of distinct resident stem cells. Here we report that JunB, a member of the AP-1 transcription factor family, regulates epidermal stem cells and sebaceous glands through balancing proliferation and differentiation of progenitors and by suppressing lineage infidelity. JunB deficiency in basal progenitors results in a dermatitis-like syndrome resembling seborrheic dermatitis harboring structurally and functionally impaired sebaceous glands with a globally altered lipid profile.
