Authors: Michelerio A, Tomasini CF Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by a cluster of signs and symptoms manifesting with difficulties in memory, language disturbances, psychological and psychiatric changes and difficulty in carrying out daily activities. Although it may seem to be far from a dermatologic competence, the ageing of populations in industrialized and developing countries has changed things making AD a multidisciplinary question. Indeed, this neurodegenerative disorder is not exclusively neurological, but rather may involve multiple tissues and organs. The abnormalities in metabolic and...

Opinion statementThe mainstay treatment of localized non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is surgical excision or Mohs surgery. However, approximately 5% of patients with NMSC harbor high-risk clinicopathologic features for loco-regional recurrence, and distant metastasis. Prognostic factors such as close or positive margins, tumor size ≥ 2 cm, poor tumor differentiation, perineural invasion, depth of invasion, and immunosuppression have all been associated with increased loco-regional recurrence and impaired survival rates. In these patients more aggressive treatments are needed and radiotherapy (RT) is often di...

Conclusions: Needle-free injection of intralesional 5-aminolevulinic acid followed by irradiation with red light therapy were reported high treatment response with manageable adverse effects for non-melanoma skin cancer patients than that of conventional and plum-blossom needle injections.Level of Evidence: III.

CONCLUSIONS: Calcium alone or in combination with vitamin D may reduce the risk of SCC, but not BCC. This trial was registered at clinicaltrials.gov as NCT00153816. PMID: 33022713 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) varies by malignancy type. Few studies have evaluated the VTE risk associated with the excision of cutaneous malignancies. The aim of our study was to compare the VTE risk associated with cutaneous malignancy (both melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers) to other low risk cancers, such as breast and thyroid.

We report a case series of cancers identified in the WTC EHC as of 31 December 2019. Descriptive characteristics are presented for 2561 cancer patients (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer) and 5377 non-cancer WTC-EHC participants who signed informed consent. We identified a total of 2999 cancer diagnoses in 2561 patients: 2534 solid tumors (84.5%) and 465 lymphoid and hematopoietic tissue cancers (15.5%) with forty-one different cancer types. We describe the distribution, frequency, median age of cancer diagnosis and median latency from 9/11 by cancer site. In addition to common cancer types, rare cancers, including male b...

Mohs surgery is a common cosmetic procedure performed to excise nonmelanoma skin cancer. It is done by three distinct physician pools, dermatologists, ENT, and plastic surgeons. With the emergence of cosmetic surgery reviews online, the differently trained physicians can be compared in their patient satisfaction rates as well as the makeup of their clinical practice.

CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis of cutaneous malignancies was mostly affected by the lockdown; among internal malignancies, corrective actions were mostly needed for colorectal cancer and invasive bladder cancer. PMID: 32995855 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractGermline mutations inCDKN2A greatly increase risk of developing cutaneous melanoma. We have constructed a risk prediction model, Familial Risk Assessment of Melanoma (FRAMe), for estimating the likelihood of carrying a heritableCDKN2A mutation among Australian families, where the prevalence of these mutations is low. Using logistic regression, we analysed characteristics of 299 Australian families recruited through the Sydney site of GenoMEL (international melanoma genetics consortium) with at least three cases of cutaneous melanoma (in situ and invasive) among first-degree blood relatives, for predictors of the pr...
