KOL-Index: 127 Alopecia neoplastica (AN) from visceral tumours is a rare form of cutaneous metastasis in which internal malignancies spread to the scalp. The diagnosis of AN may be very challenging, especially when its onset precedes the diagnosis of the primary tumour. We aimed to improve the knowledge on AN, highlighting that in case of scarring localized alopecia, a differential diagnosis with ...

KOL-Index: 127 Skin aging is a complex process that causes morphologic variations. Some of these variations have been hypothesized to be involved in skin cancer development. This paper reviews current knowledge of the features of aged skin as seen with reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM). Basic principles of the technique are described, and the RCM features of healthy skin and skin cancer are briefly ...

KOL-Index: 111 Confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) has been introduced in clinical settings as a tool enabling a quasi-histologic view of a given tissue, without performing a biopsy. It has been applied to many fields of medicine mainly to the skin and to the analysis of skin cancers for both in vivo and ex vivo CLSM. In vivo CLSM involves reflectance mode, which is based on refractive index of cell ...

KOL-Index: 84 Recent evidence indicates that melanoma comprises distinct types of tumors and suggests that specific morphological features may help predict its clinical behavior. Using a SNP-array approach, we quantified chromosomal copy number alterations (CNA) across the whole genome in 41 primary melanomas and found a high degree of heterogeneity in their genomic asset. Association analysis correlating ...

KOL-Index: 75 Importance: The clinical and dermoscopic features of the vast majority of uncommon variants of cutaneous melanoma have been rarely reported, leading to difficulty in making accurate diagnoses. Objective: To define the main clinical and dermoscopic features of the most frequently reported but uncommon histologic variants of cutaneous melanoma. Evidence Review: A 2-step systematic review of ...

KOL-Index: 67 Reflectance-mode confocal microscopy is a novel imaging tool that enables the noninvasive exploration of the skin. It is based on the in vivo generation of x-y confocal images that represent high-resolution maps of the skin at different depths. This chapter describes the reflectance confocal microscopic features of main dermatological diseases including epidermal tumors, melanocytic tumors, ...

KOL-Index: 64 It has been suggested that diet may influence the risk of melanoma, but few studies are available on this topic. We assessed the relation between food consumption and the risk of cutaneous melanoma in a Northern Italy population. We carried out a population-based case-control study involving 380 cases of melanoma and 719 age- and sex-matched controls. Dietary habits were established through ...

KOL-Index: 60 BACKGROUND: Dermoscopy and Reflectance Confocal Microscopy (RCM) features of scalp melanoma according to lesion location and histopathology have not been fully investigated. OBJECTIVES: To reveal dermoscopic and RCM features of scalp melanoma according to lesion location and histopathology. METHODS: We retrospectively retrieved images of suspicious, atypical excised, flat melanocytic lesions ...

KOL-Index: 59 BACKGROUND: Skin cancer screening interventions often relay on the involvement of general practitioners (GPs). Many interventions up to now have been directed to training approaches focusing on the clinical features of skin malignancies to increase GPs skill in skin cancer recognition. METHODS: Based on the available current knowledge about skin cancer epidemiology and risk factors, we built ...

KOL-Index: 59 BACKGROUND: Scalp melanomas are usually thicker and show worse prognosis than other sites and other head and neck melanomas. One hypothesis to explain this aggressive behavior could be diagnosis delay attributed to hair concealment of lesions. METHODS: Primary melanomas of the scalp diagnosed over two decades at four reference centers in Australia and Italy were included. Hair coverage and ...
