ConclusionOur data illustrates that patients with germline heterozygous ATM mutations can have widely varying clinical effects with radiation therapy. Given the possibility of unpredictable deleterious effects, our study highlights the importance of caution and careful consideration when devising the multi-modality management strategy in these patients.
Conclusion: There has been a paradigm shift in the management of both hematopoietic and solid cancers with the advent of targeted chemotherapeutic drugs leading to an increase in uncommon and specific drug reactions. Early recognition of these decreases morbidity, improves quality of life, and allows continuation of the life saving chemotherapy.

We present a case of acute urticaria and angioedema after radiotherapy.
ConclusionsPRDR radiation therapy with capecitabine was a well-tolerated and effective method for treating patients with recurrent breast cancer. Prospective studies are necessary to compare side effects and efficacy with conventional dose rate reirradiation and to evaluate the potential role for capecitabine in the recurrent setting.
Conclusion: The SIB-VMAT technique is effective and safe for irradiating locally advanced rectal cancer. Its effectiveness is expressed in higher clinical and pathological complete response rates and safety with the same rates of acute toxicity. PMID: 31651118 [PubMed - in process]
Discussion Spider telangiectasia or spider angiomas have a central red lesion with radiating dilatation of the distal, end vasculature that resemble arachnid appendages. They are common lesions (up to 38% in one study of children, and 60% in pregnant women), often solitary or
We present the second case of PNGD leading to diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma. A 47-year-old woman presented with a new asymptomatic eruption of erythematous, nonscaly papules and thin plaques with variable annular configuration, symmetrically distributed on extremities. Biopsies revealed mid-dermal focal degeneration of collagen and leukocytoclasis in association with a palisaded mixed inflammatory infiltrate of neutrophils, lymphocytes, and histiocytes, some forming small granulomas. She had associated fevers, night sweats, weight loss, arthralgias and malaise. Imaging revealed retroperitoneal adenopathy. Excisional lymph ...
Authors: Sheriff T, Lin MJ, Dubin D, Khorasani H Abstract Cannabis is increasingly being used world-wide to treat a variety of dermatological conditions. Medicinal cannabis is currently legalized in Canada, 31 states in America and 19 countries in Europe. The authors reviewed the literature on the pharmacology and use of cannabinoids in treating a variety of skin conditions including acne, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, skin cancer, pruritus, and pain. Cannabinoids have demonstrated anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, anti-ageing, and antimalignancy properties by various mechanisms including interacting with the newly ...
CONCLUSIONS: There were 1584 patients including 91 with cheilitis. Patients with cheilitis were more likely to be female, younger, and atopic and have concurrent eyelid involvement than those presenting with other dermatoses. Seventeen percent of patients with cheilitis had a post-patch test diagnosis of allergic contact cheilitis, and the most frequent relevant reactions were to patients' own products, fragrances, and sunscreens. Those with cheilitis had more positive reactions to sunscreens, especially benzophenones, compared with those without cheilitis (P
