Failure of Healing in Chronic Diabetic Wounds: A Case Report
Stalled healing in chronic wounds is a challenging problem for providers and remains multifactorial in etiology. Older adults with insulin-dependent diabetes are at very high risk. In this case report, two patients with large nonhealing wounds were considered for treatment with daily jet lavage irrigation in an attempt to remove the inflammatory products of their respective chronic wounds and eliminate the persisting biofilm bacteria. Several attempts were made to reduce treatments to two to three times per week, and negative-pressure wound therapy was initiated in both cases only to see the return of inflammation and necr...

The Use of Allograft Skin for the Treatment of Darier Disease
Darier disease is an autosomal dominant skin disorder characterized by keratotic papules. After their appearance, these lesions tend to grow over time, producing large and exudative plaques that compromise the general condition of the affected patient’s skin. The authors report the clinical case of a patient affected by Darier disease with superinfected de-epithelialized areas over 30% of his body. In addition to antibiotic and antifungal therapy, providers used allograft skin to cover the injured areas and stimulate their progressive re-epithelialization with complete healing after 2 months.

A Giant Squamous Cell Carcinoma Arising in a Patient with Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease of follicular pilosebaceous units. Chronic, active, and poorly controlled disease may lead to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The diagnosis and treatment of SCC in HS is particularly challenging because SCC lesions may be easily mistaken for HS lesions. Current medical literature recommends aggressive surgical excision with at least 2-cm margins. In this article, the authors describe a giant perianal SCC arising in a patient with HS who was treated with surgical resection and radiotherapy. (Source: Advances in Skin and Wound Care)

Exploring Tropical Infections: A Focus on Scrub Typhus
Scrub typhus is caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi and has a near global prevalence. It is associated with local and systemic manifestations that lead to morbidity and mortality. Given the nonspecific presentation of fever in a returning traveler, a high index of suspicion and thorough skin examination for eschar are critical to establishing a diagnosis. Early treatment is crucial to avoid severe outcomes, further highlighting the need to include scrub typhus in differential diagnosis. An accompanying narrative case explores the epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of scrub typhus. (Source: Advances in Skin and Wound Care)
