A comparison of effectiveness and cosmetic outcome of two methods for ingrown toenail: partial nail matricectomy using CO2 laser versus lateral nail fold excision.
CONCLUSION: The treatment outcome was slightly better in the PNM group than in the LNFE group, and vice-versa for the cosmetic outcome. There were nearly similar outcomes in terms of the mean time of repair, pain duration, return to daily activity, and infection rate using both methods.

Plasma sublimation for the treatment of xanthelasma palpebrarum.
CONCLUSIONS: We present plasma sublimation as a new method for the treatment of XP. During the procedure, the method allows to control the depth of tissue destruction and the presence of xanthoma tissue, and to minimize pain and trauma, making it particularly ideal for treating areas around the eye.

A comparison of serum zinc levels in melasma and non-melasma patients: a preliminary study of thyroid dysfunction.
Authors: Sastrini Sekarnesia I, Sitohang IBS, Agustin T, Wisnu W, Hoemardani ASD Abstract INTRODUCTION: Melasma is an acquired hyperpigmentation disorder, clinically identified by symmetrical blackish-brown macules, especially on the facial area. Several factors are thought to play a role, including thyroid dysfunction and zinc deficiency. The aim of this study was to determine serum zinc levels in melasma and non-melasma patients with and without thyroid dysfunction. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Jakarta in September 2019. There were 60 melasma patients and 60 non-melasma patients. The two ...

Diagnostic management of cheilitis: an approach based on a recent proposal for cheilitis classification.
Authors: Lugović-Mihić L, Blagec T, Japundžić I, Skroza N, Delaš Adžajić M, Mravak-Stipetić M Abstract Currently, there are no clear recommendations for diagnostic management of lip inflammation and cheilitis, which is evident in the varied nomenclature and subtypes found in medical literature on cheilitis. This can confound diagnostic management. We therefore recently put forth a proposal for cheilitis classification, defining three groups of cheilitis based on duration and etiology: mainly reversible cheilitis, mainly irreversible cheilitis, and cheilitis connected to other diseases. The most common...

Angiokeratomas and treatment with enzyme replacement therapy in a patient with Fabry disease.
We present a patient diagnosed with Fabry disease at age 11, with rapid progression of new angiokeratomas in typical regions before beginning treatment with ERT. To date, our patient has been treated with ERT for 10 years. During the treatment period, new angiokeratomas have not arisen nor have existing ones enlarged during puberty, adolescence, and early adulthood. Furthermore, partial regression of the angiokeratomas has occurred in association with regression of left ventricular hypertrophy and anhidrosis. Overall, this case suggests that long-term ERT could stop the progression of angiokeratomas and induce their partia...

CONCLUSIONS: The description of discharge symptoms experienced by many patients is similar to the description of symptoms of an umbilical pilonidal sinus (UPS). This is a condition with a morphology reminiscent to that of HS because it is defined by sinus tract formation triggered by hair penetrating the umbilical skin. UPS could be an explanation for umbilical HS symptom. PMID: 32206815 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Acta Dermatovenerologica Alpina, Panonica, et Adriatica)

Such dermatophyte infections often have an atypical clinical presentation and are difficult to diagnose, but with the rise of immunosuppressive drugs and self-prescribed topical therapies, they are becoming increasingly prevalent.

Adverse effects associated with imiquimod therapy are mainly limited to the application site and include erythema, crusting, scaling and ulceration. Systemic adverse reactions, such as erythema multiforme are rare. Here we report a case of a 77- years old patient that developed erythema multiforme after treatment of actinic keratoses with imiquimod. Cessation of imiquimod and treatment with local corticosteroids led to rapid regression of erythema mult...

Epidemiology and resistance trends of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from vaginal samples: a 10-year retrospective study in Hungary.
CONCLUSIONS: A slow and steady increase in resistance levels could be observed (mainly corresponding to MRSA isolates). Although the present resistance trends are still advantageous (compared to European resistance levels) and do not hinder adequate therapy, continuous surveillance of resistance levels is recommended. Macrolides and clindamycin should be used with caution, and, if available, only when susceptibility to these drugs has been verified.

Pemphigus vulgaris possibly associated with application of a tissue expander in a patient with Crohn's disease and primary sclerosing cholangitis.
We report the case of a 13-year-old girl suffering from Crohn's disease (CD) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) who developed PV after application of a tissue expander for surgical removal of a giant congenital melanocytic nevus (GCMN). To the best of our knowledge, the case presented here is the first report of PV possibly associated with the application of a tissue expander and also the first report of coexistence of PV with either PSC or with PSC and CD in the same patient. Triggering or acute exacerbation of PV may be considered a possible side-effect of tissue expander application, especially in patients with a ...

CONCLUSION: SNIUAA was the most common phenotype of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug hypersensitivity in our cohort. Diclofenac was the most common cause of the hypersensitivity reaction and also the most common cause of anaphylactic reaction. In the group of patients with a positive history after taking diclofenac or pyrazolone, fewer OPTs with the suspected drug were performed, but more often OPT with aspirin to prove that hypersensitivity is selective.

Teledermatology management of difficult-to-treat dermatoses in the Faroe Islands.
DISCUSSION: Dermatological conditions that require paraclinical assistance for diagnosis, hands-on examination, or treatment with either biologics or surgery will all result in high CPP. However, teledermatology still has a place in the treatment of high-CPP dermatoses in rural areas because there is no other alternative. For non-rural areas, CPP can be used as a way to identify those dermatoses that are not advantageous to treat using telemedicine, but instead best benefit from standard face-to-face consultation.

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed the presence of a polypous lump in the stomach. Genetic consultation confirmed the diagnosis of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome.

METHODS: A survey was performed among general practitioner (GP) residents and consultants in order to determine awareness, knowledge, and attitudes about HS. RESULTS: Among 372 respondents, 74% were GP residents in the first 2 years, 22% GP residents in the 3rd and 4th year, and 4% consultants.

Is mean platelet volume an inflammatory marker in acne patients treated with isotretinoin?
CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study revealed that mean platelet volume decreased significantly 3 months after the initiation of isotretinoin treatment. Therefore, we suggest considering mean platelet volume as an inflammatory marker in patients with acne treated with isotretinoin. However, this research should be replicated under more randomized conditions in a prospective study to reach a definitive conclusion.

Municipally sponsored human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination of boys in Slovenia: the first 4 years.
CONCLUSIONS: Our data show that the outstanding local initiative by several pediatricians and school medicine specialists can result in HPV vaccine coverage rates of boys that are comparable to or even higher than those in the national vaccination program for girls. Because acceptance of HPV vaccination among boys in Slovenia is adequate, we believe that the inclusion of boys in the national vaccination program, predicted to occur in the 2020/2021 school year, will yield significant results.

Human papillomavirus: vaccination, related cancer awareness, and risk of transmission among female medical students.
CONCLUSIONS: Female medical students showed low knowledge of HPV vaccination and an extremely low HPV vaccination rate, but a higher level of HPV-related cervical cancer awareness. A substantial number of students were not yet sexually active or had never had sex without a condom. HPV vaccination is thus still important for our respondents. There is an emerging need in educational programs for students starting from their first semester of the program and for a broader informational campaign focused on schoolchildren and their parents.
