Considerations in surgical management of a Buschke –Lowenstein tumor in Netherton syndrome: A case report
This report describes a pediatric case of a Buschke–Lowenstein tumor of the natal cleft in a patient with Netherton syndrome that had failed to respond to medical management. We reviewed the literature for previous cases of surgery in individuals with Netherton syndrome using MEDLINE and PubMed searches. Our patient underwent surgery to remove the lesion without complication. Using conventional dressings and topical negative‐pressure therapy, the wound was managed and healed within a reasonable time frame despite the underlying skin condition. This case indicates that surgery and topical negative‐pressure therapy...

The triad of pruritus, xanthomas, and cholestasis: Two cases and a brief review of the literature
Abstract When encountered in children, xanthomas are most commonly associated with a group of disorders known as familial hyperlipidemias. Aside from cosmetic concerns, these xanthomas are typically asymptomatic, but when generalized pruritus is a prominent associated symptom, clinicians should consider a different set of diagnoses that includes cholestasis of the liver. In this article we present two illustrative cases of children with cholestatic disease, pruritus, and xanthomas and discuss other disorders that may include this triad.

Evaluation of patient satisfaction in pediatric dermatology
Abstract Background/ObjectivesThere remains a lack of investigation into which factors patients and families value the most in their experience at pediatric dermatology clinics. Most of the current literature on quality improvement in dermatology does not encompass the pediatric population. To determine the drivers that are most predictive of a positive patient experience, we observed the indirect relationship between several factors of the patient experience and their role in patient satisfaction. MethodsPatient satisfaction surveys were distributed after their visits to patients at four pediatric dermatology clinics in o...

RASA1 mutation in a family with capillary malformation –arteriovenous malformation syndrome: A discussion of the differential diagnosis
We describe a family who presented with several scattered, vascular, cutaneous lesions and was found to have a novel mutation in RASA1, diagnostic of capillary malformation–arteriovenous malformation syndrome. Our patient was initially given a presumptive clinical diagnosis of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Capillary malformation–arteriovenous malformation syndrome shares several features with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia and hereditary benign telangiectasia, but it can be distinguished clinically according to its morphologic appearance and distribution of cutaneous vascular lesions, the presen...

Wound culture isolated antibiograms and caregiver ‐reported skin care practices in children with epidermolysis bullosa
ConclusionNumerous organisms, including resistant bacteria, are known to colonize the wounds of individuals with EB. Mupirocin resistance was prevalent and more than half of the participants reported its use. Testing for mupirocin resistance may be considered for certain patients. These observations may help guide questions for future longitudinal multicenter studies with the goal of optimizing EB wound care recommendations. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

We sought to describe the epidemiology of pediatric keloids seen at the plastic surgery outpatient department of the University College Hospital, Ibadan. MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed all children younger than 19 years who presented with nonburn keloids between 2008 and 2014. Data were obtained on age; duration, size, and location of the keloid; family history; mode of treatment; and outcome. Outcome variables were recurrence and wound complications. Data were analyzed using the Pearson chi‐square test for discreet variables and the i...

Juvenile elastoma without germline mutations in LEMD3 gene: A case of Buschke ‐Ollendorff syndrome?
We report the case of a 6‐year‐old Caucasian girl with clinical and histopathologic features of Buschke‐Ollendorff syndrome. Histologic examination of skin lesions showed thick, curly, elastic fibers in the derma. Bone lesions compatible with Buschke‐Ollendorff syndrome were found in the girl's mother. Mutations in LEMD3 are pathogenic for Buschke‐Ollendorff syndrome. Analysis of all exons and exon‐intron junctions of LEMD3 did not reveal any germline mutations. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

“Dots and lines”: A melanonychia striata in regression: Report of a case
Abstract A 2‐year‐old Caucasian boy with melanonychia striata with multiple striking pits on the nail plate of one fingernail is described. Nail disorders often pose diagnostic and therapeutic challenges for clinicians, especially melanonychia striata, because of the fear of a subungual melanoma. Only a few childhood cases of melanonychia striata have been described, and the multiple pits are even less common. Dots distributed along melanotic lines is a finding referred to as “dots and lines” and can be a sign of regression of melanonychia in childeren. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

The patient ‐centered acne severity scale study
Abstract Acne is one of the most common skin conditions seen by dermatologists. As with many other cutaneous diseases, due to its visibility, acne often produces a large psychosocial impact on patients who suffer from the disease. Such psychosocial burdens are exacerbated by the variation in acne presentation that can lead to the usage of multiple different treatments before visible improvements are appreciated. Although many scales have been established to determine severity from the clinician standpoint, patient‐oriented scales are lacking. Clinicians use these severity tools to guide management and judge patient impro...

Inpatient management of children with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa: A review
Abstract Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa is a disorder marked by skin and mucosal blistering after minimal trauma. Even the most routine procedures in the hospital, if done incorrectly, can precipitate extensive skin loss, pain, and scarring. Most providers have little experience working with patients with this degree of skin fragility. When a person with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa is admitted to the hospital, there are multiple considerations to keep in mind while strategizing an effective care plan: avoidance of new blisters with a “hands‐off” approach; careful consideration of al...

Comparison of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis guidelines —an argument for aggressive atopic dermatitis management
Abstract The development of effective systemic treatments has revolutionized the treatment of inflammatory skin diseases. The availability of safe new treatments and the understanding of psoriasis as a systemic disease with comorbidities and effects on quality of life have driven the current aggressive treatment paradigm of psoriasis. Historically the morbidity of atopic dermatitis (AD) has been dismissed, given the perception of AD as “just” a rash. Differences in the guidelines for psoriasis and AD management may suggest variations in the current conceptualization of disease severity and effects on quality of...

Demodicosis in two patients with a previous history of Langerhans cell histiocytosis
Abstract Demodex mites are commensal organisms rarely found in healthy children. Human demodicosis can be classified as a primary or a secondary form. The secondary form in children usually affects severely immunodepressed children. To our knowledge, this is the first report of human demodicosis associated with Langerhans cell histiocytosis. These cases show that this skin disorder can occur months after completing chemotherapy, without recurrence of the systemic disease. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Warming up to the idea of wet wraps
Abstract Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a prevalent condition in the pediatric population that can have a significant effect on a child's quality of life. Management is multifactorial, involving topical pharmacotherapy, emollients, and a bathing regimen in conjunction with close supervision from the caregiver and physician. In the case of moderate to severe or refractory AD, wet wraps can be used. As part of our wet wrap regimen, we propose warming damp cotton pajamas in the dryer before application. This makes the wet wraps more comfortable for children, increasing adherence to the prescribed regimen. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)
