Dermatologic features in good film characters who turn evil: the transformation.
Abstract Dermatologic depictions in film are often used to symbolize evil. To ascertain whether certain dermatologic characteristics are more representative of evil in movies, skin findings in film characters before and after evil transformation were compared using the Good Movie Characters Turned Bad poll courtesy of The Internet Movie Database (IMDb). The poll ranked the 35 most remarkable moral transformations in cinema. Data was analyzed from 27 characters who met study criteria and there was a statistically significant, greater number of dermatologic features seen in characters after an evil transformation. P...

Tuberculosis and interleukin blocking monoclonal antibodies: Is there risk?
Abstract Several new monoclonal antibodies that interfere with interleukin (IL) cascades have come to market in recent years. They follow a generation of drugs that block tumor necrosis factor (TNF). It has been well established that TNF is important in the containment of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) and that blocking this cytokine increases the risk of tuberculosis (TB) infection. Thus, judicious screening for Mtb of patients taking TNF blocking drugs has been the standard of care. It remains unclear if the newer monoclonal, interleukin blocking drugs, which affect IL-12, IL-23, and IL-17 pathways are associa...

The development of primary cutaneous CD4+ small/medium-sized pleomorphic T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder at the site of a melanoma excision scar.
We present the first case of PCSM-LPD, to our knowledge, arising at a past melanoma excision site. A 72-year-old woman with a past medical history significant for melanoma-in-situ excised 36 years ago presented to our clinic for evaluation of a single, erythematous plaque of the posterior arm within a melanoma excision scar. A biopsy was performed, revealing PCSM-LPD. Reports of the development of other T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders after prior skin trauma such as chemical burns, thermal injury, and mechanical trauma exist in the literature. Physicians should be aware of the possibility of the appearance of T-cell l...

Scabies presenting as cutaneous nodules or malar erythema: reports of patients with scabies surrepticius masquerading as prurigo nodularis or systemic lupus erythematosus.
In conclusion, Sarcoptes scabiei infestation can present with atypical clinical morphology and an absence of classical lesions such as burrows conventionally distributed in the interdigital web spaces, volar wrists, periumbilical area, or genitalia. Scabies surrepticius is a term that has been designated to describe these unusual presentations. Prurigo nodularis and systemic lupus erythematosus can be added to the litany of conditions masquerading as scabies and are included amongst the guises of scabies surrepticius.

Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma responsive to combination therapy with methotrexate and corticosteroids.
Abstract Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (SPTCL) is a rare condition that falls underneath the umbrella of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs). SPTCL can be very difficult to diagnose as it may mimic other subtypes of CTCL, such as γ/δ T-cell lymphoma (TCL), or other forms of panniculitis. Confirmation of diagnosis often requires immunohistochemical analysis and is essential for proper prognosis and therapeutic management. Herein, we present a case of SPTCL that mimicked lupus panniculitis and was successfully treated with prednisone taper and methotrexate. PMID: 30677832 [Pu...

Nodular amyloidosis in a patient with systemic scleroderma.
We report an unusual case of a patient with systemic scleroderma who developed primary cutaneous nodular amyloidosis on the left lower leg. The diagnosis was confirmed with a skin biopsy with Congo red staining and a novel technique using a laser microdissection and mass spectrometry-based proteomic analysis method for amyloid protein characterization. A work-up for systemic amyloidosis was negative and the patient improved symptomatically with wound care. Patients with primary cutaneous nodular amyloidosis should be followed clinically over time for the possible development of systemic amyloidosis, although the risk of di...

A trichogenic tumor with aggressive features initially diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma.
We present a case in which a 73-year-old female had a long-standing scalp nodule for over 30 years that rapidly increased in size. The patient's lesion was initially diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma on shave biopsy, but upon excision, revealed features concerning for trichoblastic carcinoma such as brisk mitotic activity and comedo-like necrosis. Sudden change in an atypical scalp lesion that has been present for many years should increase suspicion for an atypical trichogenic tumor, such as trichoblastic carcinoma.

Seven-year itch: a perplexing case of lichen planus-lupus erythematosus overlap syndrome.
We report a case of LP-LE overlap syndrome diagnosed in a man previously believed to have atypical lichen planus who presented with an exacerbation of exuberant pruritic erythematous scaly plaques. The patient had six separate skin biopsies all of which displayed features of LP. Because the clinical symptoms did not correlate to the histopathological picture, a seventh skin biopsy with direct immunofluorescence (DIF) was performed and immunologic markers measured. The DIF demonstrated early lupus bands; serologic testing exhibited elevated ANA and anti-SSA. These findings established the diagnosis of LP-LE overlap syndrome...

Striking enhancement at the site of radiation for nivolumab-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome.
We present a case of SJS in a patient being treated with anti-PD-1 therapy nivolumab for metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx. This case is unusual because of the severe accentuation with striking enhancement at his prior radiation site and in the cutaneous region with heavier tumor burden from his metastatic disease. This reaction may give insight to the underlying pathophysiology of SJS, suggesting that immune checkpoint inhibitors can activate T-cells to target keratinocytes and that external factors may be involved in creating distinct epitopes for T-cell recognition. We hope this case adds to the body ...

We describe a case of an atrophic dermatofibroma on the back of an elderly man. Skin biopsy demonstrated a spindle cell proliferation in a storiform pattern, loss of elastic fibers, and substantial atrophy of both the underlying dermis and subcutaneous tissue. An aggregation of elastic fibers was found in the periphery of the tumor. These histologic features supported the diagnosis of atrophic dermatofibroma. The dermal and adipocyte atrophy was likely responsible for the retracted appearance of the lesion. PMID: 30142716 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Dermatol Online J)

Addressing the average lifespan of skin diseases is critical to good patient care.
Abstract Dermatology patients routinely ask how long their skin condition may last, yet this critical aspect of their care has not been emphasized in the literature. When a given diagnosis may be self-limited, it is essential that clinicians meet patient expectations by properly discussing the possible time course for resolution. Furthermore, being aware of, and prioritizing the knowledge of the duration of a skin disease can help limit continued exposure to side effects of prescribed treatments once the condition may have self-resolved or remitted.

Abstract 5-fluorouracil, a fluoropyrimidine antineoplastic drug, is used to topically treat actinic keratoses. Local skin reactions to the medication are common and anticipated. However, severe adverse events from topical 5-fluorouracil are rare and unexpected. A 69-year-old man with a lower lip actinic keratosis developed severe neutropenia on day 11 of topical 5-fluorouracil treatment - after 14 applications. After receiving a subcutaneous injection of filgrastim, his neutrophil count normalized. The PubMed database was used to search the following terms: agranulocytosis, cream, 5-fluorouracil, granulocytopenia,...

Squamous cell carcinoma of the perineum masquerading as necrotizing hidradenitis suppurativa.
Abstract Many cases of superinfected hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) involve multiple species of bacteria, but gas-producing infections are rare and can complicate the clinical picture. Additionally, recognizing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) as a complication of longstanding HS is imperative. Herein, we present a unique case of a severe emphysematous HS that was initially mistaken for Fournier gangrene and eventually diagnosed as superinfected SCC.
