Pediatric dermatology emergencies.

Cutis 2020 03;105(3):132-136

Division of Dermatology, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, Illinois, USA.

Many pediatric skin conditions can be safely monitored with minimal intervention, but certain skin conditions are emergent and require immediate attention and proper assessment of the neonate, infant, or child. We review the following pediatric dermatology emergencies so that clinicians can detect and accurately diagnose these conditions to avoid delayed treatment and considerable morbidity and mortality if missed: staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS), impetigo, eczema herpeticum (EH), Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), infantile hemangioma (IH), and IgA vasculitis.

Dermatoscopy in life-threatening and severe acute rashes.

Clin Dermatol 2020 Jan - Feb;38(1):113-121. Epub 2019 Nov 11.

Institute of Dermatology, Santa Maria della Misericordia University Hospital, Udine, Italy.

A prompt recognition of life-threatening and severe acute rashes is of utmost importance to start an appropriate therapy as soon as possible. Consequently, clinicians often must rely only on clinical data to make a diagnosis because some diagnostic procedures may take a relatively long time to be performed (eg, histologic examination, microbiologic tests). In this scenario, dermatoscopy may be useful as an auxiliary tool to support the diagnosis by highlighting subclinical features. Read More

Antibiotic sensitivity and clinical outcomes in staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome.

Pediatr Dermatol 2020 Jan 18;37(1):222-223. Epub 2019 Oct 18.

Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome causes widespread skin denudation primarily in infants < 1 year old. Selection of empiric therapy is complicated by rising rates of antibiotic resistance in community-acquired staphylococcal infections. Consistent with a previous study, this retrospective review found that SSSS-associated isolates were more likely to be clindamycin-resistant and less likely to be methicillin-resistant compared to overall staphylococcal infections.

Neonatal Skin Emergencies.

Pediatr Ann 2019 Jan;48(1):e36-e42

Although the majority of neonatal skin rashes can be safely monitored without intervention, there are a significant few that are dermatologic emergencies. When called to assess a neonate, it is important to distinguish what requires immediate diagnosis and treatment from those that represent benign etiologies. The skin may be the first clue to certain infections such as herpes simplex virus, syphilis, varicella, cytomegalovirus, fungal infections, and staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, all of which require immediate testing and some of which may lead to severe sequelae.
