[Paediatric vulval clinic].
Authors: Anemüller W, Langan EA, Recke A Abstract In 2008 a vulval clinic was established at the University Clinic of Schleswig Holstein, Campus Luebeck, Department of Dermatology. A total of 1227 patients were referred to the clinic between 2008 and October 2020, including 91 children (age range 1-13 years) and 17 adolescents (age range 14-17 years). The most common paediatric vulval conditions encountered were lichen sclerosus (33%), vulvitis (23%) and vulval psoriasis (7%). Quality of life was measured in 81 children using the paediatric version of the Dermatology L...

[Pediatric dermatology-What to consider in prescriptions?]
Authors: Staubach P Abstract In recent years, patient management in the area of dermatolgogical diseases has changed considerably in both adults and children. In addition to well-established topical treatment, new systemic treatment approaches have emerged. Topical treatments are still in the forefront in the management of pediatric patients with dermatological diseases. In addition, formulations are therapeutic options that enable us to increase the treatment possibilities due to the fact that we can change concentrations of ingredients, implement new findings from clinical research and/or prescribe large amounts ...

[Anthrenus dermatitis : Case report with suggestions regarding causes and consequences].
Authors: Montag A, Mebs D, Oppel E Abstract Beetles of the genus Anthrenus are widespread worldwide and are quite common as grain and stock pests, especially in rural regions and suburban areas. The larvae of the beetles can trigger skin and occasionally mucosal reactions upon contact. The unfamiliar but typical image of "Anthrenus dermatitis" can easily be misinterpreted if beetle larvae are not detected or a causal link with them is not suspected. In the present article, the causes of Anthrenus dermatitis are discussed using as an example the larva of the woolly flower beetle (Anthrenus verbasci). ...

Authors: Sticherling M Abstract Vaccinations are among the most successful prophylactic measures in medicine. As they are applied to healthy subjects, regulatory steps before licensing of any vaccination are strictly based on clinically controlled studies as well as on registry data in the further course. The probability and relevance of adverse reactions to vaccinations have to be weighed against any harm through the respective natural infection as well as the vaccination-induced protection against infections. Intolerance reactions to vaccinations are far more suspected than proven and altogether rare. Among these...

Surgical procedures, endovenous thermal procedures, endovenous chemical procedures and conservative measures are used for treatment. Often the invasive and conservative procedures are combined. A precise examination of the varicose veins is required for therapy planning; duplex sonography is the gold standard. Conservative therapy focuses on compression therapy with compression bandages and with compression stockings. Medical adaptive compre...

Since the indication for a biopsy in children is generally made cautiously, OCT and KLM can be helpful in the clarification of pediatric skin lesions. In addition, biopsies only represent a snapshot of a small area of the skin, while noninvasive methods allow several locations to be examined over time, so that dynamic changes and the course of therapy can also be determined. In pediatric dermatology, these diagnostic method...

In patients with typical clinical symptoms, the determination of ANA is of both diagnostic and prognostic importance. However, if ANA were determined due to unspecific symptoms, the interpretation of ANA findings can be problematic. In these cases, misjudgements with severe consequences for the patients are possible. Many systemic autoimmune diseases have prominent early skin involvement and the dermatologist can be the first physician that such a patient sees....

Among the exposomal factors, chronic, life-long exposure to sunlight is of eminent importance for the development of skin aging characteristics. Importantly, photoaging of human skin is not only caused by ultraviolet (UV) B and A radiation, but is also the consequence of exposure to wavelengths beyond the UV spectrum. These include visible, i.e. blue light (400-440 nm) as well as the short part of infrared radiation, i.e. IRA (760-1200 nm). Here we summarize the sci...

Less common variants such as LP inversus, atrophic LP, the palmoplantar manifestation or childhood LP may pose diagnostic difficulties so that a biopsy is taken to confirm the diagnosis. Differentiation from LP-like drug eruption may be challenging and biologicals have to be considered as triggers. Etiology and pathogenesis of LP are discussed based on recent literature.
