Anagen Effluvium after Therapeutic Scalp Surgery: Unreported Phenomenon.

Skin Appendage Disord 2021 Jun 23;7(4):311-314. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Dermatology, Hospital das Clínicas, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG), Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Introduction: Many procedures are performed on the scalp, such as excision of pilar and sebaceous cysts, melanocytic nevi, and reduction surgery for scarring alopecia, among others. In hair transplants, telogen effluvium is often reported 3 months after surgery; however, hair loss usually happens much earlier, around second week after the procedure, not compatible with the time required for hair to enter telogen and exogenous phases in normal conditions.

Case Reports: We report 3 cases of anagen hair loss 4 weeks after surgeries, with perilesional trichoscopy suggesting anagen effluvium, with typical signs such as black dots and exclamation hairs. Read More

Lower Eyelid Orbicularis Oculi Myocutaneous Flap: A Feasible Technique for Full Thickness Upper Eyelid Reconstruction.

World J Plast Surg 2021 May;10(2):98-102

Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori Fondazione G. Pascale Via M. Semmola, 52 - 80131 Naples, Italy.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most frequent malignant eyelid tumor, followed by squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous gland carcinoma and malignant melanoma. These eyelid malignancies represent main reason for eyelid reconstruction in ophthalmoplastic surgery which can be challenging. Lower eyelid orbicularis oculi myocutaneous flap was used for reconstructive purpose in four consecutive patients with a full thickness upper eyelid BCC.

[Malassezia spp.: interactions with topically applied lipids-a review : Malassezia and topically applied lipids].

Hautarzt 2021 Jul 24. Epub 2021 Jul 24.

Symrise AG, Muehlenfeldstr. 1, 37603, Holzminden, Deutschland.

Lipophilic Malassezia yeasts are an important part of the human resident skin flora, especially in seborrheic areas. Besides mutualistic interactions with the host they are also linked to diseases although the specific causes are not yet comprehensively understood. The amount of available lipids on the skin correlates with the Malassezia density and also with the occurrence of certain diseases like tinea versicolor. Read More

Trop2 Expression in Extramammary Paget's Disease and Normal Skin.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Jul 19;22(14). Epub 2021 Jul 19.

Department of Dermatology, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka 812-8582, Japan.

Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare skin cancer arising in the apocrine gland-rich areas. Most EMPD tumors are dormant, but metastatic lesions are associated with poor outcomes owing to the lack of effective systemic therapies. Trophoblast cell surface antigen 2 (Trop2), a surface glycoprotein, has drawn attention as a potential therapeutic target for solid tumors. Read More

Cd34+ Stromal Cells/Telocytes in Normal and Pathological Skin.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Jul 8;22(14). Epub 2021 Jul 8.

Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of La Laguna, 38071 Tenerife, Spain.

We studied CD34+ stromal cells/telocytes (CD34+SCs/TCs) in pathologic skin, after briefly examining them in normal conditions. We confirm previous studies by other authors in the normal dermis regarding CD34+SC/TC characteristics and distribution around vessels, nerves and cutaneous annexes, highlighting their practical absence in the papillary dermis and presence in the bulge region of perifollicular groups of very small CD34+ stromal cells. In non-tumoral skin pathology, we studied examples of the principal histologic patterns in which CD34+SCs/TCs have (1) a fundamental pathophysiological role, including (a) fibrosing/sclerosing diseases, such as systemic sclerosis, with loss of CD34+SCs/TCs and presence of stromal cells co-expressing CD34 and αSMA, and (b) metabolic degenerative processes, including basophilic degeneration of collagen, with stromal cells/telocytes in close association with degenerative fibrils, and cutaneous myxoid cysts with spindle-shaped, stellate and bulky vacuolated CD34+ stromal cells, and (2) a secondary reactive role, encompassing dermatitis-e.

Necrotizing infundibular (ostial) crystalline folliculitis.

Clin Dermatol 2021 Mar-Apr;39(2):194-198. Epub 2020 Oct 16.

Department of Pathology, Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Paris, France. Electronic address:

Necrotizing infundibular crystalline folliculitis is a rare condition characterized by folliculocentric waxy papules in the seborrheic areas of adult patients, with intrafollicular filamentous birefringent crystalline deposits as the histopathologic clue. Although the real pathogenesis of necrotizing infundibular crystalline folliculitis remains unclear, the intrafollicular material seems to be derived from an interaction between such superficial microorganisms as gram-positive bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes, Staphylococcus spp), Malassezia yeasts, and sebaceous lipids. Topical or systemic antiacne agents or antimycotics appear to be effective therapy. Read More

Can a radiofrequency device reduce the pore size?

Lasers Med Sci 2021 Jul 12. Epub 2021 Jul 12.

Department of Dermatology, Korea University Ansan Hospital, Korea University, 123, Jeokgeum-ro, Danwon-gu, Ansan-si, Gyeonggi-do, 15355, Republic of Korea.

Case Report: A Frameshift Mutation in MSH2 Exon 2 in a Kidney Recipient With Muir-Torre Syndrome.

Front Oncol 2021 24;11:681780. Epub 2021 Jun 24.

Department of Pathology, Taicang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Suzhou, China.

Muir-Torre syndrome (MTS), a rare subtype of Lynch syndrome, is mostly autosomal dominant, which is caused by germline mutations in DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes, the resulting microsatellite instability (MSI) of which increases the risk of developing sebaceous and other visceral tumors. Several reports have showed an association between immunosuppressive agents and the progression of latent MTS. In this report, we described a 41-year-old man with a history of kidney transplantation, having a rapid growth of the nodule on the anterior chest under immunosuppressive therapy, which was histologically proved to be sebaceous carcinoma.

Cutaneous Lymphadenoma Is a Distinct Trichoblastoma-like Lymphoepithelial Tumor With Diffuse Androgen Receptor Immunoreactivity, Notch1 Ligand in Reed-Sternberg-like Cells, and Common EGFR Somatic Mutations.

Am J Surg Pathol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

*Department of Pathology, University Clinic Hospital, INCLIVA Biomedical Research Institute Departments of †Pathology §Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Valencia, Valencia ‡Department of Pathology, Costa del Sol Health Agency, Málaga, Spain ∥Barr Dermatopathology, Laguna Beach, CA.

The term "cutaneous lymphadenoma" was coined in this journal for an unusual lymphoepithelial cutaneous adnexal neoplasm, possibly with immature pilosebaceous differentiation. Some authors further proposed that cutaneous lymphadenoma was an adamantinoid trichoblastoma. However, although a hair follicle differentiation is widely accepted, the fact that this is a lymphoepithelial tumor is not appropriately explained by the trichoblastoma hypothesis. Read More

Reprod Toxicol 2021 Jul 2;104:85-95. Epub 2021 Jul 2.

Department of Dermatology, Environmental Medicine and Health Theory, University of Osnabrück, Osnabrück, Germany.

Isotretinoin (13-cis-retinoic acid), a derivative of vitamin A, is used in the treatment of severe acne resulting in sebum suppression induced by sebocyte apoptosis. Isotretinoin treatment is associated with several adverse effects including teratogenicity, hepatotoxicity, and dyslipidemia. Isotretinoin's effects on endocrine systems and its potential role as an endocrine disruptor are not yet adequately investigated. Read More
