Pediatric vaccine ‐strain herpes zoster: a case series
ConclusionsWhile vaccination against VZV has overall reduced the incidence of both varicella and HZ in US children, given the widespread use of the VZV vaccine, awareness of the possibility of vaccine‐induced HZ remains an important consideration. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

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...

Self ‐limited neonatal periumbilical erythema
We report three cases of neonatal, noninfectious, periumbilical erythema that resolved shortly after umbilical stump detachment. We hypothesize that these infants experienced an inflammatory and vasodilatory response during the normal umbilical cord separation process. We propose a new term: self‐limited neonatal periumbilical erythema. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

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)

Extensive orf infection in a toddler with associated id reaction
We present an unusual case of multiple orf lesions on the fingers of a 13‐month‐old child who was bitten by a goat and subsequently developed progressive swelling, blistering, and necrotic papulonodules of the hand followed by an additional diffuse, pruritic, papular rash. A primary diagnosis of orf infection was confirmed using real‐time polymerase chain reaction, and the diffuse eruption was clinically consistent with an id reaction. Extensive necrosis and papular id reaction associated with orf rarely have been described. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Orofacial granulomatosis in a 12 ‐year‐old girl successfully treated with intravenous pulse corticosteroid therapy and chloroquine
We report the case of a 12‐year‐old girl with asymptomatic erythematous infiltration of her upper lip, cheeks, and chin that had persisted for more than 2 years; biopsy confirmed granuloma formation. Because a large area was affected, intralesional corticosteroids were inappropriate and six cycles of 3‐day intravenous pulse corticosteroid therapy (dexamethasone 1.5mg/kg), repeated once after 4 weeks, was given. Our patient also received oral chloroquine and topical emollients. At the end of the sixth pulse cycle, the infiltration had completely resolved, leaving slight residual erythema.

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)

Shedding Light on Alopecia Areata in Pediatrics: A Retrospective Analysis of Comorbidities in Children in the National Alopecia Areata Registry
Abstract Alopecia areata (AA) is a common autoimmune disease and it is challenging to predict which patients will have severe disease. The purpose of this retrospective study was to identify comorbidities in children enrolled in the National Alopecia Areata Registry. Atopic dermatitis was more common in patients with severe AA than in those with mild disease. The most common autoimmune comorbidities were vitiligo, psoriasis, thyroid disease, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Abstract Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is an infectious dermatosis that commonly presents in children and immunocompromised individuals. Although lesions usually resolve spontaneously after several months, they can be symptomatic and cause psychosocial distress.

We report the case of a 2‐year‐old boy with Hirschsprung's disease who developed perianal pseudoverrucous papules and nodules subsequent to persistent diarrhea and stool leakage after Giardia infection. Bleeding from the papules resulted in iron deficiency anaemia requiring blood transfusion and iron infusion. Topical therapies used over 6 months were of limited benefit and colostomy was considered, but the condition completely resolved after commencement of oral loperamide. This demonstrates that perianal pseudoverrucous papules and nodules can be severe but are entirely reversible upon removal of the source of skin i...
