Local heat urticaria.
We present a 38-year-old woman with local heat urticaria confirmed by heat provocation testing. Heat urticaria is a rare form of physical urticaria that istriggered by exposure to a heat source, such as hot water or sunlight. Although it is commonly localized and immediate, generalized and delayed onset forms exist. Treatment options include antihistamines and heat desensitization. A brisk, mechanical stroke elicited a linear wheal. Five minutes after exposure to hot water, she developed well-demarcated,erythematous blanching wheals that covered the distal forearm and entire hand. PMID: 29447656 [PubMed - in process] ...

Generalized hyperhidrosis secondary to presumed eccrine gland dysfunction with possible apocrine metaplasia.
We present a 57 year-old man presented with generalized hyperhidrosis and widespread, smooth, flesh colored papules on the torso and extremities.Histological examination from multiple biopsies demonstrated morphologic alteration of the eccrine glands with an apocrine phenotype, suggesting eitherapocrine metaplasia or the presence of "apoeccrine glands." The morphologic similarities between eccrine, apocrine, and apoeccrine as they relate to ourpatient's histologic findings are discussed. We consider secondary causes of generalized hyperhidrosis, which may also play a role in this patient's presentation. Treatment...

Primary anetoderma with undifferentiated connective tissue disease.
We present a case of a patient with a 20-year history of pruritic and painful hyperpigmented atrophic papules clustered on the neck, axillae, inframammary folds, and right medial thigh. Although the histopathologyof her axillary lesions was consistent with anetoderma, her clinical presentation is unusual given the extent of involvement, reported pain and pruritus, and sharp demarcation of the distribution. The diagnosticuncertainty of this case led to added difficulty in management of a disease that is already notoriously difficult to treat and may significantly impact patient's quality of life.

Lynch Syndrome and Muir-Torre Syndrome: An update and review on the genetics, epidemiology, and management of two related disorders.
Abstract Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC), also known as Lynch Syndrome, is an autosomal dominant, tumor predisposing disorder usuallycaused by germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. A subset of HNPCC, Muir-Torre Syndrome (MTS) also involves MMR gene defects and is generally accepted as a variant of HNPCC. MTS is typicallycharacterized by at least one visceral malignancy and one cutaneous neoplasm of sebaceous differentiation, with or without keratoacanthomas. In either version of the disorder, nonfunctional MMR systems lead tothe loss of genomic integrity, marked commonly by mismatche...

Does daily folic acid supplementation reduce methotrexate efficacy?
Abstract Methotrexate is a mainstay treatment for autoimmune and inflammatory conditions in the field of Dermatology. However, in some patients, its use is associated with significant side effects and toxicity. Folate supplementation with either folic acid or folinic acid often mitigates side effects and reduces the incidence of systemic toxicity related to methotrexate. Although the value of methotrexate is clear, debate remains about folate supplementation. There is little agreement about the proper dosing or frequency of folate supplementation as many believe that daily folate supplementation can reduce methotr...

Sublamina densa-type linear IgA bullous dermatosis with IgA autoantibodies specific for type VII collagen: a case report and clinicopathological review of 32 cases.
Abstract Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) is a rare autoimmune bullous disorder characterized by linear deposits of IgA at the basement membrane zone(BMZ) and/or by circulating IgA anti-BMZ antibodies. Comparing with other immuno-bullous diseases, LABD represents a heterogeneous disease entitywith diversity of pathogenic IgA autoantibodies to different hemidesmosomal antigens and an association with malignancies and occasional drug use. We herein present an 82-year-old Japanese man with LABD, whose indirect immunofluorescence using 1M NaCl-split skin showed positive staining for IgA at the dermal side alone. F...

Crohn disease-associated neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis: report and literature review of neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis.
Abstract Neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis (NUD) is a useful diagnostic term for urticarial lesions that are less pruritic and more painful than conventional urticaria. The histopathologic features include neutrophilic infiltrates in the interstitial dermis with a higher density than idiopathic urticaria. NUD has been associated with several systemic conditions, which are predominantly autoimmune and autoinflammatory in nature. A woman with Crohn disease who developed NUD is described. Literature reports of other conditions in which neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis have been observed are also reviewed and summa...

Flame figures in linear IgA bullous dermatosis: a novel histopathologic finding.
CONCLUSIONS: Although unusual, the combined findings supported a diagnosis of LABD. Increased eosinophils may be associated with drug-induced LABD and may explain the numerous eosinophils in our case. It is important to be aware of this finding as the pathology may easily be misdiagnosed as BP, or possibly bullousWells syndrome. This case emphasizes that combined clinical, pathologic, and DIF findings are essential in the diagnosis of bullous dermatoses. PMID: 29447641 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Dermatol Online J)

There were clear differences in patient satisfaction rates of various dimensions of cultural competency. A follow-up study with a larger sample size is needed for closer examination into the conclusions. PMID: 28633750 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Dermatol Online J)

Use of a punch tool for paring plantar warts in an "awl-like" manner.
Use of a punch tool for paring plantar warts in an "awl-like" manner. Dermatol Online J. 2017 Jun 15;23(6): Authors: Neill B, Rajpara A, Liu D, Aires D Abstract Paring is useful for both diagnosis and treatment of plantar warts.

Total body skin examination adherence among young adults with an increased risk for skin cancer.
Abstract Although ultraviolent radiation exposure and skin cancer rates are rising in the US, there is not a consistent national message calling for routine total body skin examinations (TBSE) by a healthcare provider. This pilot study examined TBSE rates among adults at an increased risk for skin cancer (history of sunburn, indoor tanning use, excessive UV exposure, poor sunscreen use). Overall skin cancer prevention behaviors were insufficient among respondents (n=953) and only a quarter of respondents considered at an increased risk for skin cancer reported a TBSE. White, older students with light skin who regu...
