A squamous cell carcinoma in a young woman with Lynch syndrome.

Fam Cancer 2018 Dec 17. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Dermatology, Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Lynch syndrome (LS) is an autosomal-dominant inherited disorder characterized by a predisposition to colorectal cancer and extracolonic cancers (particularly endometrium, ovary, stomach, small bowel, hepatobiliary tract, pancreas, urothelial tract, brain, and skin). Muir-Torre syndrome (MTS) is considered a phenotypical variant of LS, where patients develop sebaceous neoplasms and keratoacanthomas. Currently, only few studies and case reports suggest an association between LS and other skin cancers, such as Bowens' disease, melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Read More

Loss of protein phosphatase 6 in mouse keratinocytes enhances K-ras -driven tumor promotion.

Cancer Sci 2018 Jul 25;109(7):2178-2187. Epub 2018 Jun 25.

Division of Cancer Chemotherapy, Miyagi Cancer Center Research Institute, Miyagi, Japan.

Here, we address the function of protein phosphatase 6 (PP6) loss on K-ras-initiated tumorigenesis in keratinocytes. To do so, we developed tamoxifen-inducible double mutant (K-ras -expressing and Ppp6c-deficient) mice in which K-ras expression is driven by the cytokeratin 14 (K14) promoter. Doubly-mutant mice showed early onset tumor formation in lips, nipples, external genitalia, anus and palms, and had to be killed by 3 weeks after induction by tamoxifen, while comparably-treated K-ras -expressing mice did not.

Cell Signal 2018 Jan 16;42:106-113. Epub 2017 Oct 16.

Department of Plastic Surgery, the Second Affiliated Hospital of Suzhou University, Suzhou, China. Electronic address:

The present study examined the expression and biological functions of bromodomain-containing protein 4 (BRD4) in skin squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cells. Our results show that BRD4 mRNA and protein expression was upregulated in human skin SCC cells, as compared to its level in the normal skin keratinocytes and fibroblasts. Treatment with BRD4 inhibitors, JQ1 and CPI203, resulted in proliferation inhibition, apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in both established (A431 cell line) and primary skin SCC cells. Read More

The bipedicled medial plantar flap: Vascular enhancement of a reverse flow Y-V medial plantar flap by the inclusion of a metatarsal artery perforator for the reconstruction of a forefoot defect-A case report.

Microsurgery 2018 Sep 26;38(6):698-701. Epub 2017 Aug 26.

Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

The pedicled medial plantar (MP) flap is an optimal solution for defects involving the weight-bearing areas of the foot. However, venous congestion is a frequently encountered complication, especially with the reverse-flow variants of the flap, and several strategies have been reported in literature both to prevent and to manage it. In this article, we present the use of a medial plantar flap based distally on the lateral plantar artery with the adjunct of an extra metatarsal perforator from the dorsalis pedis artery as a vascular enhancement to avoid the venous congestion and to improve the overall circulation.
