The residency interview is still paramount: results of a retrospective cohort study on concordance of dermatology residency applicant evaluators and influence of the applicant interview.
Abstract Application to dermatology residency is a highly competitive process. Although factors associated with successfully matching have been studied, less is known regarding the ability of admissions committees to screen applicants in a uniform manner or the importance of the interview in ranking applicants. Our goal was to retrospectively measure our admission committee evaluators' concordance regarding residency application credentials and interview performance, and ultimately the effects on final applicant ranking.

Dermatology discharge continuity clinic enhances resident autonomy and insight into transitions-of-care competencies: a cross-sectional survey study.
Abstract Dermatology residents perform consults on hospitalized patients, but are often limited in their ability to follow-up with these patients after discharge, leading to inadequate follow-up and understanding of post-discharge transitions of care. In 2013, a discharge continuity clinic (DCC) staffed by the inpatient consult dermatology resident and attending dermatologist was established at one of the four adult hospital sites residents rotate through in the Harvard Combined Dermatology Residency Program. Resident perceptions about the DCC and their educational experience on inpatient consult rotations with a ...

Continuity of care in dermatology residency programs in the United States.
Abstract PURPOSE: As established by the AccreditationCouncil for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME),dermatology residents in the United States must participate in continuity clinic. This requirement may be achieved through multiple means, allowing for program variation. To better assess continuity clinic's role in resident learning, more data on this component of graduate medical education is needed. METHODS: An anonymous online survey was distributed via the American Board of Dermatology list serv to all U.S. dermatology residents. Continuity clinic organization, setting, frequency, and patient and preceptor...

Superficial morphea: case report, look-alikes, pathogenesis, and treatment.
Abstract Superficial morphea, a rare variant of morphea, is characterized by hypopigmented to hyperpigmented skin lesions located predominantly in a symmetric fashion at intertriginous sites. These patches and plaques typically lack the significant induration, contractures, and atrophy seen in other subtypes of morphea. Histologic examination is key for accurate diagnosis considering the number of similar conditions which may clinically mimic superficial morphea. Herein, we present a case of a 25-year-old woman who re-presented for consultation in our clinic after gradual progression of her skin lesions. In additi...

Use of an oral phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor (apremilast) for the treatment of chronic, severe atopic dermatitis: a case report.
Abstract Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common inflammatory dermatosis characterized by pruritus, erythema, induration, and lichenification. Current treatment options for generalized atopic dermatitis are limited and have potentially serious adverse effects, especially in patients with severe, chronic AD who frequently require systemic anti-inflammatory agents. Apremilast, an oral phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor, was FDA approved in September 2014 for the treatment of moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. However, its upstream anti-inflammatory effects, ease of use as an oral agent, and mild side-effect profile make it ...

We present a patient with a longstanding history of severe plaque psoriasis who presented with disfiguring scaly plaques involving greater than 80% body surface area. The patient's disease was minimally responsive to multiple therapies. Repeat punch biopsies demonstrated parakeratosis, psoriasiform hyperplasia, and dilated blood vessels consistent with psoriasis. Given atypical clinical features and overall poor treatment response additional work up was obtained. A serum nutritional panel was consistent with niacin deficiency and the patient later revealed extensive alcohol intake. A diagnosis of concurrent pellagra was ma...

Abstract Current laboratory monitoring may not be optimal. A retrospective chart review was performed on thelaboratory results of 246 patients who were treated with isotretinoin for acne over a 9-year period.

Abstract Medullary carcinoma of the thyroid gland accounts for only 5-10% of thyroid carcinomas. Also, metastases to the skin of malignant tumors are infrequently (2-9% of patients). In the case herein reported in a 64-year old woman, a metastatic nodule on the scalp was the presenting clinical manifestation of a medullary thyroid carcinoma. A comprehensive review of the literature was conducted for similar cases using PubMed.

A child with kwashiorkor misdiagnosed as atopic dermatitis.
We report a case of a 12-month old girl in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, who presented with diffuse edema, desquamation, and irritability misdiagnosed as atopic dermatitis. The diagnosis was consistent with kwashiorkor as a result of severe dietary restriction. The mother had placed the child on a severely restrictive diet, consisting only of potatoes, gelatin, and juice as a consequence of the inability to breastfeed. Kwashiorkor is often underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed and if unrecognized or untreated, may be devastating.

Anxiety levels of patients undergoing common dermatologic procedures versus those seeking general dermatologic care.
Abstract Patients undergoing Mohs micrographic surgery frequently experience anxiety as a result of multiple potential factors. There is currently no data regarding how this anxiety compares to other common procedures performed in dermatology offices, such as shave biopsy and excision, relative to a general dermatology visit.
