Primary extramammary Paget's disease: a clinicopathological study of 28 cases.

Int J Clin Exp Pathol 2019 1;12(9):3426-3432. Epub 2019 Sep 1.

Department of Surgical Oncology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Bengbu Medical College Bengbu, Anhui, P. R. China.

To analyze the clinical and histopathological manifestations, immunohistochemistry, treatment, and prognostic factors of primary, extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD), we systematically reviewed the clinical presentations, histopathology and follow-up courses of 28 patients with primary EMPD. Clinically, their symptoms and morphology mimicked various types of dermatoses, such as seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, candidiasis, tinea cruris and erythrasma, so the initial diagnosis of EMPD was often delayed or missed. Histopathology showed invasive EMPD, and the tumor cells were mostly solid nests or had a glandular structure. Read More

Dermoscopy - a simple and rapid in vivo diagnostic technique for tinea incognito.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Sep - Oct;94(5):612-614. Epub 2019 Sep 30.

Department of Dermatology & STD, Patna Medical College & Hospital, Patna, India.

Tinea incognito resulting from corticosteroid abuse is becoming very common in the tropics. Its diagnosis is tricky owing to its confusing morphology, as well as practical and technical issues associated with mycological tests. Dermoscopy has now evolved as a novel diagnostic tool for diagnosing tinea incognito in such challenging situations, since the typical hair changes such as Morse-code hairs, deformable hairs, translucent hairs, comma and cork screw hairs, and perifollicular scaling may be seen despite steroid use, irrespective of mycological results.

Management of mycoses in daily practice.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2017 Dec;152(6):642-650

Department of Pathophysiology and Transplantation, Università degli Studi di Milano, IRCCS Foundation, Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy -

The guideline recommendations, albeit founded on thorough reviews of clinically relevant literature data, are often not immediately adaptable to everyday life. Considering the marked heterogeneity of superficial mycoses, each of them requires specific management in a real life context; in all cases diagnostic confirmation is required with microscopic and culture examination. In tinea capitis oral therapy is necessary (minimum six weeks) and should be continued until clinical and, above all, mycological healing. Read More

Computational analysis of conserved coil functional residues in the mitochondrial genomic sequences of dermatophytes.

Bioinformation 2016 15;12(3):197-201. Epub 2016 Jun 15.

Biotechnology Branch, University Institute of Engineering and Technology (U.I.E.T), Punjab University, Chandigarh 160014, India.

Dermatophyte is a group of closely related fungi that have the capacity to invade keratinized tissue of humans and other animals. The infection known as dermatophytosis, caused by members of the genera Microsporum, Trichophyton, and Epidermophyton includes infection to the groin (tinea cruris), beard (tinea barbae), scalp (tinea capitis), feet (tinea pedis), glabrous skin (tinea corporis), nail (tinea unguium), and hand (tinea manuum). The identification of evolutionary relationship between these three genera of dermatophyte is epidemiologically important to understand their pathogenicity. Read More

Efficacy and tolerability of topical sertaconazole versus topical terbinafine in localized dermatophytosis: A randomized, observer-blind, parallel group study.

Indian J Pharmacol 2016 Nov-Dec;48(6):659-664

Department of Pharmacology, Venerology and Leprosy, R. G. Kar Medical College and Hospital, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Objective: Epidermal dermatophyte infections most commonly manifest as tinea corporis or tinea cruris. Topical azole antifungals are commonly used in their treatment but literature suggests that most require twice-daily application and provide lower cure rates than the allylamine antifungal terbinafine. We conducted a head-to-head comparison of the effectiveness of the once-daily topical azole, sertaconazole, with terbinafine in these infections. Read More
