Desmoplastic intradermal spitz nevi arising within red tattoo ink.

Dermatol Online J 2018 Nov 15;24(11). Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Dermatology, University of California Davis, School of Medicine, Sacramento, California.

Tattoos present a diagnostic challenge for dermatologists. Various reactions to tattoo have been identified in the literature ranging from allergic, to infectious, to neoplastic. Of the neoplastic cases identified, it is unclear whether the tattoo ink was directly causative, or if the cases were merely coincidence, as the number of cutaneous malignancies has also been on the rise.

Effects of picosecond laser on the multi-colored tattoo removal using Hartley guinea pig: A preliminary study.

PLoS One 2018 6;13(9):e0203370. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, Dankook University, Cheonan, Chungnam, Republic of Korea.

Picosecond lasers have emerged as the leading technology for tattoo removal due to their shorter pulse lengths. To clarify the features of picosecond lasers, we compared picosecond and nanosecond lasers in their ability to remove multi-colored tattoo in an animal model. We first compared a nanosecond quality-switched Nd:YAG laser with picosecond Alexandrite and quality-switched Nd:YAG lasers and then the picosecond quality-switched Nd:YAG laser with the picosecond Alexandrite laser, using a guinea pig model.

A new high-throughput method to make a quality control on tattoo inks.

Spectrochim Acta A Mol Biomol Spectrosc 2019 Jan 21;206:547-551. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Department of Environmental Biology, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. Electronic address:

Nowadays, practice of tattooing is very common worldwide and, along with this increasing trend, there is also an increased risk of adverse reactions to tattoo pigments that are well known and described in literature. Previous studies have reported that cutaneous and allergic reactions to a particular pigment can manifest in several ways (allergic contact dermatitis and photo-allergic dermatitis). In this paper, a new high-throughput method is presented, in order to achieve a new system for the quality control on tattoo inks based on chromatographic-spectroscopic approach. Read More

Departments of Dermatology, Allergology and Venereology, Helsinki University Central Hospital, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease of unknown aetiology characterized by the presence of non-caseating epithelioid cell granulomas in multiple organs, mainly the lungs and the lymphatic system. It is also one of the leading cause of inflammatory eye diseases. For the past 70 years, sarcoidal granulomas on tattoos and permanent make-up have been documented. Read More

1 Department of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Cutaneous reactions to tattoos can be attributed either to trauma or to the exogenous pigment introduced into the skin. Red pigment is associated with a high sensitizing potential and is the most frequently implicated pigment inducing various types of histological reactions. Herein, we describe a patient with red tattoo pigment-induced granulomatous dermatitis that histologically revealed a very rare granuloma annulare-like reaction. Read More

Sarcoidosis in A. C. Milan (1899)?

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2018 Jan 13;6(1):99-102. Epub 2018 Jan 13.

Medical Institute of Ministry of Interior, Department of General, Vascular and Abdominal Surgery, General Skobelev 79, 1606 Sofia, Bulgaria.

The pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of sarcoidosis as an autonomous disease are subjects of spirited discussions, which haven't found definitive conclusion yet. Distinguishing between sarcoidosis and sarcoid-like reactions (sarcoid - type granulomas) is not currently a medical "gold standard" and is not implemented in clinical practice. This leads to 1) misinterpretation of numerous available data; 2) difficulty in the interpretation of other unverified data, which is often followed by 3) inappropriate or inadequate therapeutic approach.

Vaccine safety testing using magnetic resonance imaging in suckling pigs.

Vaccine 2018 03 19;36(13):1789-1795. Epub 2018 Feb 19.

Livestock Center Oberschleissheim, Veterinary Faculty of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany.

Safety testing is one major part of the licensing procedure for veterinary vaccines and demands a large number of animals. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was tested as an alternative, which may lead to a reduction in numbers of animals required for safety testing, and, correspondingly to a detailed description of the three-dimensional extent of the local tissue reaction repetitively in live pigs. In previous pig studies the following questions arose:To answer these questions the following study was performed by comparing two vaccine groups of suckling piglets (8 animals per group; A and B) with two control groups (4 animals per group; C and D).

Dyspnea Associated with Henna Stone: A Rare Cause of Pediatric Tracheotomy.

Turk Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2017 Mar 1;55(1):38-40. Epub 2017 Mar 1.

Tracheotomy is one of the oldest surgical procedures, and it is a life-saving procedure to overcome upper airway obstructions. While congenital causes play an important role in pediatric tracheotomy indications, upper airway edema and obstruction due to anaphylaxis rarely require tracheotomy. Allergy can cause life-threatening acute edema by anaphylactic reactions in the respiratory tract. Read More

Background: Increasing numbers of reports of rapidly arising, isolated or eruptive keratoacanthomas (KA) and squamous cell carcinomas (CSC) on the red part of tattoos tend to suggest a non-fortuitous link with the procedure. We report herein two different presentations of KAs on tattoos: one patient with multiple eruptive KAs on sun-exposed areas of a recent red tattoo and another with a solitary lesion on a recent tattoo. We discuss the issues related to the distinction between KAs and CSCs in this particular context. Read More

The human papillomavirus (HPV), of which more than 200 different types have so far been identified, is an infectious disease impacting skin and mucous membranes. Several genera exist with distinct clinical impact. However, with ornamental tattoos increasing in popularity, a number of mostly cutaneous side effects have also been reported, such as infections, allergic reactions, or even a rise of malignant tumours within the tattoo.

Pattern analysis of laser-tattoo interactions for picosecond- and nanosecond-domain 1,064-nm neodymium-doped yttrium-aluminum-garnet lasers in tissue-mimicking phantom.

Sci Rep 2017 05 8;7(1):1533. Epub 2017 May 8.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology Research Center, International St. Mary's Hospital, Catholic Kwandong University College of Medicine, Incheon, Korea.

During laser treatment for tattoo removal, pigment chromophores absorb laser energy, resulting in fragmentation of the ink particles via selective photothermolysis. The present study aimed to outline macroscopic laser-tattoo interactions in tissue-mimicking (TM) phantoms treated with picosecond- and nanosecond-domain lasers. Additionally, high-speed cinematographs were captured to visualize time-dependent tattoo-tissue interactions, from laser irradiation to the formation of photothermal and photoacoustic injury zones (PIZs).
