Annular and arcuate syphilis: an uncommon presentation of disseminated secondary syphilis.
Abstract Physicians should be aware of unusual presentations of syphilis. For dermatologists, the visual recognition of lesional morphology and distribution is a fundamental part of clinical evaluation, which dictates the workup and diagnosis. Secondary syphilis has a variety of presentations, the most common being a diffuse symmetrical papulosquamous eruption. It continues to be a diagnostic challenge as the myriad manifestations of secondary syphilis can mimic many dermatological disorders. Herein we report a case of secondary syphilis with an uncommon presentation characterized by disseminated annular and arcua...

Restrictions on blood donations relevant to dermatology.
Abstract Over 36,000 units of blood are transfused every day in the US. With nearly 40% of the population eligible to donate, we may frequently treat potential blood donors. We reviewed the American Red Cross and World Health Organization's restrictions on blood donation. Multiple drugs used, and diseases treated in dermatology, are associated with blood donation restrictions. Understanding these restrictions may help us better educate our patients.

Optimizing visiting clerkships in dermatology: a dual perspective approach.
Abstract Matching into a dermatology residency program has become increasingly more challenging for medical students. As students continue to explore various methods to help them standout to programs, recent medical literature has continued to show evidence of the important role that visiting clerkships play. Visiting clerkships offer several benefits to both students and programs. In order to optimize visiting clerkships, the perspectives of both students and programs are each examined with recommendations provided to help maximize its benefits.

Teledermatology leading to an important diagnosis in an underserved clinic.
Abstract Cutaneous signs can be the first manifestation of important medical diagnoses, including inherited cancer syndromes, but access to dermatologic evaluation is especially challenging for uninsured patients. Herein, we present a case in which a volunteer academic teledermatology triage program was used by a community health clinic to make a diagnosis of multiple cutaneous leiomyomas, which confer a high likelihood of hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer syndrome, also known as Reed syndrome; this prompted malignancy screening for the patient. Importantly, this case underscores the potential for te...

Topical application of 5-fluorouracil 5 percent cream associated with severe neutropenia: discussion of a case and review of systemic reactions after topical treatment with 5-fluorouracil.
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,...

Generalized fixed drug eruption to piperacillin/tazobactam and review of literature.
Abstract Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is an adverse drug reaction characterized by the development of well-circumscribed, round, dusky erythematous macules and plaques on cutaneous or mucosal surfaces. The reaction occurs on the same mucosal or cutaneous site with subsequent exposures to the offending drug. Although FDE usually manifests as a single lesion, in rare instances, more than one lesion may arise and this is referred to as a generalized eruption. Herein, we present a 31year-old man with history of cystic fibrosis who developed a generalized fixed drug eruption to piperacillin/tazobactam (Zosyn, Pfizer). We ...

Abstract There are a variety of evidence-based treatments available for psoriasis. The transition of this evidence into practice is challenging.

Loss of dermal elastic tissue and collagen apparently concentrated the capillary proliferation into an unusual morphology mimicking the hyphal structures.

Pyoderma gangrenosum, acne, and suppurative hidradenitis syndrome in end-stage renal disease successfully treated with adalimumab.
We report an unusual case of PASH syndrome in a patient with end-stagerenal disease (ESRD) who was successfully treated with the tumor necrosis factor inhibitor, adalimumab. The case underscores the challenges associatedwith the treatment of PASH syndrome as well as the ongoing search to establish a genetic basis for the syndrome. Renal impairment has been reported in association with pyoderma gangrenosum but has notbeen described in PASH syndrome. We believe this to be the first reported case of a patient who developed PASH syndrome in the setting of ESRD. PMID: 29447652 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Dermatol Online J)
