Conclusions: The findings presented here support the idea that the lymphocyte migratory mechanism observed in neoplasms is similar to that of inflammatory processes of the skin.
This study was done to compare the clinical and the laboratory characteristics of patients diagnosed with atypical PR and patients diagnosed with typical PR. We retrospectively reviewed 162 patients (71 males, 91 females; mean age, 33.0 years) diagnosed with PR through clinical manifestations and skin biopsies from 2006 to 2018 in Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gang-dong.
Introduction: High frequency ultrasound is becoming a common tool in dermatology ´s office. Several studies support this technique for demarking surgical edges before removal nonmelanoma skin cancer, classifying basal cell carcinomas in high risk vs low risk, and showing infiltrative components after incisional biopsy of superficial basal cell carcinomas. Only few studies descr ibe the sonographic findings of skin lymphomas and its applications in the clinical practice. We expose ultrasound features of patients with skin lymphoma.
This study assessed the feasibility of an adhesive tape device from Dermtech, Inc to collect RNA from affected and unaffected skin and its potential to detect gene expression differences between groups.
Diverse etiologic causes may give rise to neonatal erythroderma, where the skin biopsy is the cornerstone in the diagnosis. This disease implies a clinical condition that always entails a potential life threat, even though the most severe cases are the least common. To guarantee an adequate hydroelectrolytic balance is essential among the therapeutic measures. A 2-week-old girl came to the pediatric dermatology surgery with some skin lesions present from birth. Erythematous plaques with a double desquamating edge were found, which covered almost the entire body surface.
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is the second most common skin cancer after basal cell carcinoma. While most cases are cured by excision, a substantial number of patients will develop local, regional, or distant recurrences, with the number of cSCC-related deaths approaching that from melanoma. Several clinical decisions, including the extent of surgical margins, the use of adjuvant radiation or chemotherapy, and sentinel lymph node biopsy/completion dissection, could be informed by a patient ’s relative risk of recurrence.
Background: Leukemia cutis (LC), by definition, is the cutaneous infiltration of neoplastic leukocytes or their precursors. The incidence of LC is rare. This is the first case series about clinical features and survival outcomes of LC in TaiwanObjectives: We aimed to investigate the relationship between clinical characteristics, distribution, and prognosis among different types of LC in Taiwan by reviewing medical records, skin biopsies and photographs.
Introduction: Total body photography (TBP) is a screening tool shown to enhance melanoma detection and reduce benign nevus biopsies. Such practices are usually limited to individuals with a personal or family history of atypical nevi, melanoma, or nonmelanoma skin cancers. Melanoma depth is the most important prognostic indicator of mortality and early detection improves survival. We previously demonstrated that computer-assisted serial comparison of TBP images can yield small malignant lesions which may be in their initial growth phase.
Systemic capillary leak syndrome (SCLS) is a rare, often fatal, condition characterized by hemoconcentration, hypoalbuminemia and hypotension. Its association with other disease entities remains unclear. In this case report, we describe two diagnosed cases of dermatomyositis, an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy, complicated with SCLS. The first case is of a 41-year-old, male and the second case is of a 61-year-old female. Both cases were admitted for the management of dermatomyositis and presented with characteristic cutaneous lesions of the condition, proximal muscle weakness, elevated muscle enzymes, positive ANA, abnorm...
Background: Melanoma is the most common skin cancer in patients under 20 years. Staging procedures typically follow those in adults; however little is known about utilization of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) and predictors of positive sentinel nodes. We aimed to assess SLNB utilization and factors affecting SLN positivity in a pediatric melanoma cohort.
