Eyelid Tumors: Clinical Aspects of Ophthalmic Pathology.

CONCLUSION: Lid tumors can develop from different structures of the eyelid and, therefore, show a wide spectrum of clinical findings. If a malignant process is suspected or the clinical diagnosis cannot be unequivocally determined, a biopsy (incisional vs. excisional) is necessary followed by histologic evaluation. Furthermore, inadequately treated benign lesions, such as an incomplete excised nevus or a molluscum contagiosum, can lead to serious problems. PMID: 29996160 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract We aimed to investigate roles of dermatoscopy in skin infections, with Part 1 of our report covering viral and bacterial infections.

Our control participants were all patients with skin infections in two 3-month periods, and sex-pair-matched patients with the same infections, who had not undergone dermatoscopy. Records of 523 study subjects were analyzed. Our first new finding was that dermatoscopy brought forward the diagnosis of herpes zoster by 1.6...

Abstract We discuss imiquimod associated with non-application site mucosal reactions and two of our own clinical cases. In one of our patients, erosive cheilitis developed in a young boy after using topical imiquimod 5% cream for 5 nights weekly on bilateral cheeks, chin, and near vermillion border for molluscum contagiosum. The case is discussed with concerns for imiquimod use in molluscum contagiosum when used near mucosal surfaces. PMID: 30142710 [PubMed - in process]
