We present a case of granular cell atypical fibroxanthoma of the scalp. The neoplasm occurred as a tender nodule on the frontal scalp of an 82-year-old Caucasian man. Histology demonstrated a diffuse proliferation of atypical epithelioid cells with abundant granular cytoplasm. Many of the cells had large irregular nuclei and atypical mitotic figures were present. Immunohistochemical stains were positive for CD68 and procollagen 1 and negative for cytokeratin, HMB-45 and S-100 protein. ...

Opinion statementAllergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a type IV (delayed) hypersensitivity reaction that has a wide spectrum of presentations that often imitate or overlap with other cutaneous eruptions. Differential diagnoses to consider include infections, skin lymphoma-malignancies, inflammatory dermatoses, nutritional deficiencies, and mechanical causes of tissue damage. We discuss clues to the diagnosis of ACD, such as pruritus, localization to the area of skin contact with the ...

Background: The placement of a tattoo is a common event. Basal cell carcinoma arising from a tattoo is rare despite this neoplasm being the most common form of skin cancer.

Objective: We describe a 41-year-old man who developed a basal cell carcinoma in his tattoo and review the literature of basal cell carcinomas originating in a tattoo.

Methods: A literature search using PubMed was performed. The following terms were searched: "basal," "carcinoma," "cell," and "tattoo." The ...

BACKGROUND: Although transcutaneous temperature-controlled radiofrequency (TTCRF) may effectively treat vulvovaginal laxity (VVL), atrophic vaginitis (AV), orgasmic dysfunction (OD), and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), there is a lack of histopathologic evidence to validate its use.

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate clinical and histological changes induced by vulvovaginal TTCRF.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, nonrandomized trial. Ten female subjects with mild-to-moderate VVL, with ...

BACKGROUND: A psoriasis-like eruption develops in a subset of patients with Kawasaki disease (KD).

OBJECTIVE: We sought to systematically compare KD-associated psoriasiform eruptions with classic psoriasis and the outcomes of KD in children with and without this rash.

METHODS: This was a retrospective study of 11 KD cases with a psoriasiform eruption matched 1:2 by age, gender, and ethnicity with psoriasis-only and KD-only controls. Genotyping was performed in 10 cases for a deletion of ...

BACKGROUND: Bellafill® is a soft tissue dermal filler composed of non-resorbable polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, suspended in a water-based carrier gel composed of 3.5% bovine collagen. It has been approved by the FDA for the correction of nasolabial folds and atrophic facial acne scars. Energy-based therapies are used for facial rejuvenation and treatment of acne scarring. However, little has been published about the effects of energy devices on previously placed PMMA. This ...

INTRODUCTION: An antiaging regimen that aids in clearing the matrix of waste products and stimulating neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis was tested among a group of subjects over the course of 12 weeks to assess its efficacy in women with mild to moderate wrinkles and skin sagging on the face.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: The efficacy of the product regimen was tested in 22 subjects using investigator clinical grading measurements, raking light imaging, 3D imaging, biopsies, and ...

Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare, autosomal recessive disease involving a defect in DNA repair leading to the premature development of numerous aggressive cutaneous malignancies. Although atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) is a neoplasm typically found in the setting of extensive sun exposure or therapeutic radiation, AFXs are rarely associated with children with XP. We report the case of a 13-year-old Guatemalan girl with the XP type C variant who developed one of the largest AFXs ...

Tattoos may be associated with medical complications including, albeit rarely, skin cancer. The features of a 46-year-old man who developed a basal cell carcinoma within a tattoo on his left scapula are described and the characteristics of the other 13 patients (7 men and 6 women) with tattoo-associated basal cell carcinoma are reviewed. The tumor usually occurs on the sun-exposed skin of individuals aged 60 years and older whose tattoo has often been present for 20 years or more. The ...

We describe a previously healthy 15-month-old girl who developed ecthyma gangrenosum (EG)-like lesions secondary to methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA). Her systemic symptoms and negative blood cultures suggested MSSA toxin-mediated effects. When toxin-mediated systemic symptoms accompany such lesions, pathogens other than Pseudomonas aeruginosa should be considered.

We present what we believe to be the second case of pediatric penile porokeratosis and the youngest case reported. A 6-year-old boy presented with a pruritic, verrucous growth at the urethral meatus that recurred after two meatotomies. The diagnosis of porokeratosis was confirmed by biopsy. Porokeratosis should be added to the differential diagnosis of chronic hyperkeratotic penile lesions in children.

Erythroderma presents as generalized skin redness. The features of a 39-year-old man who presented with erythroderma are described. His skin biopsy revealed hyphae in the stratum corneum, which established the diagnosis of tinea corporis. His erythroderma resolved following treatment with an oral antifungal agent. Several conditions can be associated with erythroderma. Common etiologies for erythroderma include medications, neoplasms, and papulosquamous disorders. Superficial ...
