Neurotropic Cutaneous Malignancies: Case Report on Keratinocyte Derived Malignancies of the Head and Neck With Perineural Invasion.

Front Oncol 2022 23;12:846278. Epub 2022 May 23.

Moores Cancer Center, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA, United States.

Background: The recent addition of immunotherapy as a treatment modality to surgery and radiation has vastly improved disease control for patients with keratinocyte-derived carcinomas (KCs) that are incurable with local therapies alone. With the advent of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICPis) in non-melanoma skin cancers comes diagnostic and therapeutic challenges when considering treatment strategies for patients presenting with clinical perineural invasion (cPNI) of locally advanced KC of the head and neck.

Objectives: We report four cases that convey the diagnostic and therapeutic complexity of managing patients with neuropathic symptoms from cutaneous neurotropic carcinomas of the head and neck. Read More

Giant sebaceous nevus occupying half of the head associated with sebaceous carcinoma, apocrine adenocarcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma: A case report.

JPRAS Open 2022 Jun 10;32:88-92. Epub 2022 Mar 10.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Kansai Medical University, Osaka, Japan.

We herein report a 57-year-old man afflicted with multiple malignant tumors arising from a giant sebaceous nevus on his left parieto-temporal scalp and neck. The upper eyelid was resected in all layers, and the auricle was resected as well, leaving part of the external auricular cartilage; the parotid gland area was also resected over the parotid fascia. The lost part of the left eyebrow was reconstructed using an anterior forehead skin flap, and the residual defect was covered with skin graft and expanded scalp flap. Read More

Cutaneous Neurocristic Hamartoma Mimicking Basal Cell Carcinoma in a Patient With Xeroderma Pigmentosum.

Am J Dermatopathol 2022 May;44(5):e54-e56

Department of Dermatopathology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA.

Abstract: Neurocristic hamartomas (NCH) of cutaneous origin are especially rare congenital or acquired neoplasms that often arise through aberrant embryologic development of pluripotent neural crest cells. Clinically, they often present as pigmented macules or papules on the scalp with associated alopecia. NCHs are characterized histopathologically by dermal melanocytic, fibroblastic, and neurosustentacular components. Read More

Vitamin D serum levels and non-melanoma skin cancer risk.

PeerJ 2021 24;9:e12234. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Department of Nursing, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Extremadura, Badajoz, Extremadura, Spain.

Background: Skin cancer is one of the common malignancies. There is sufficient evidence that sunlight (ultraviolet radiation) contributes to the development of skin cancer, but there is also evidence that relates adequate serum levels of vitamin D produced on the skin by the action of ultraviolet radiation with the decreased risk of various types of cancers, including skin cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of vitamin D serum levels among patients with non-melanoma skin cancers (basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma) and controls.

Immunohistochemical Expression of Matrix Metalloproteinase-1 and Cyclooxygenase-2 in Cutaneous Squamous Cell and Basal Cell Carcinoma.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2021 Apr;291(1):8-20

Sanda Smuđ Orehovec, MD, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Breast Surgery , Department of Surgery, Clinical Hospital Centre Zagreb, Kišpatićeva 12, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia;

The most common nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSC) are basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The incidence of NMSC is 18-20 times higher than the incidence of melanoma. The Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and Matrix Metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) enzymes have both been linked to the development of these diseases but their exact significance is unknown. Read More

Position statement on classification of basal cell carcinomas. Part 1: unsupervised clustering of experts as a way to build an operational classification of advanced basal cell carcinoma based on pattern recognition.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2021 Oct 25;35(10):1949-1956. Epub 2021 Aug 25.

Institute of Dermatology, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Italy.

Background: No simple classification system has emerged for 'advanced basal cell carcinomas', and more generally for all difficult-to-treat BCCs (DTT-BCCs), due to the heterogeneity of situations, TNM inappropriateness to BCCs, and different approaches of different specialists.

Objective: To generate an operational classification, using the unconscious ability of experts to simplify the great heterogeneity of the clinical situations into a few relevant groups, which drive their treatment decisions.

Method: Non-supervised independent and blinded clustering of real clinical cases of DTT-BCCs was used. Read More
