Use of reflectance confocal microscopy to evaluate 5 ‐fluorouracil 0.5%/salicylic acid 10% in the field‐directed treatment of subclinical lesions of actinic keratosis: subanalysis of a Phase III, randomized, double‐blind, vehicle‐controlled trial
ConclusionTo the best of our knowledge, this is the first randomized, vehicle‐controlled study investigating 5‐FU 0.5%/salicylic acid 10% treatment for subclinical AK lesions. The present data suggest some treatment efficacy for subclinical AK lesions detected using RCM. However, this subanalysis was not sufficiently powered and should be reproduced in a larger, subsequent cohort. (Source: Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology)

Real world treatment patterns and outcomes among metastatic cutaneous melanoma patients treated with ipilimumab
ConclusionDuring the time observed, ipilimumab was mainly used as second‐line or later therapy. A significant proportion of patients received post‐ipilimumab therapy, most of which was chemotherapy. Nevertheless, overall survival following progression on ipilimumab treatment remained poor, highlighting the need for research to develop more effective end‐of‐life treatment options.This article is protected by copyright.

Risks of different skin tumour combinations after a first melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma in Dutch population ‐based cohorts: 1989–2009
ConclusionThis large population‐based study investigating risks of developing a different subsequent cutaneous malignancy showed high‐cumulative risks of mainly KC and markedly increased relative and absolute risks of all tumour combinations. These estimates confirm a common carcinogenesis and can serve as a base for follow‐up guidelines and patient education aiming for an early detection of the subsequent cancers.

Real ‐world treatment patterns and clinical outcomes in advanced cutaneous melanoma patients in France
ConclusionRegardless of the BRAF mutation status, the median OS of patients was 16 months (95% CI = 14–18). Compared to a similar study conducted in 2007 (MELODY), a gain of 4 months is observed. The gain seems to be higher for patients with a BRAF mutation (18 months) than for those without a BRAF mutation (14 months). The OS of patients who sequentially received both a BRAF inhibitor and ipilimumab (28 months) highlights the benefit of this treatment sequence.

Analysis of Treatment Goal Alignment between Japanese Psoriasis Patients and their paired Treating Physicians
ConclusionsThe majority of treatment goal misalignment was found between paired psoriasis patients and their treating physicians in Japan. The most important contributing factors to misalignment were patients’ treatment expectation for “complete clearance” and physicians’ rating of their patients’ “level of understanding on treatment options” being low.This article is protected by copyright.

Apremilast in psoriasis – a prospective real‐world study
Abstract BackgroundApremilast is a novel oral phosphodiesterase‐4 inhibitor approved for psoriasis treatment. Randomized trials have documented its efficacy and safety, but data on real‐world patients are scarce. ObjectivesWe aim to characterize psoriasis patients treated with apremilast in a real‐world setting and calculate drug survival as an important measure of efficacy and compliance. MethodsAll patients with psoriasis who received apremilast between 1 April 2015 and 19 January 2017 were evaluated every 4 weeks, and we documented: age, weight, height, smoking status, family history of psoriasis, joint invol...

Acrochordons on the neck; a remarkable clinical feature of tuberous sclerosis showing different patterns
Abstract Sachs and Lipsker1 recently published a few patients diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis (TS) presenting with multiple loosely arranged acrochordons (molluscum pendulum) located on the posterior neck showing a lace‐like distribution and they proposed the term “molluscum pendulum necklace sign” for these typically located lesions. They detected acrochordons in five cases (17%) in a retrospectively analysed consecutive series of 29 TS patients, of whom four (three adults and one child) remarkably showed this typical pattern. Whether that sign might be a new pathognomonic sign of this genodermatosis was a...

Baseline lab parameters predicting clinical outcome in melanoma patients treated with ipilimumab ‐ a single center analysis
ConclusionsLow serum LDH before ipilimumab treatment is an independent predictor for improved PFS. Furthermore, low serum S100B is an independent predictor for MSS. The number of ipilimumab cycles (> 2) is significantly associated with prolonged PFS. Pre‐treatment calprotectin does not predict the occurrence of autoimmune colitis under ipilimumab therapy.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Managing acne in the Middle East: consensus recommendations
Abstract Acne has been estimated to affect the majority of people at some point in their life and is common in Middle Eastern countries. While acne is frequently perceived to be a self‐limited disease of adolescence, there is an increasing population of adults with acne. Information about the management of acne in the Middle East is somewhat sparse; however, several studies have recently been conducted and will be discussed in this supplement.
