Immunohistochemical Staining of Pediatric Solitary Angiokeratomas
Abstract The precise etiology and subtype of vessels constituting angiokeratomas is poorly understood. We sought to characterize the vessels by studying prospero‐related homeobox gene‐1 and D2‐40 expression in 22 pediatric solitary angiokeratomas. Routine histologic examination demonstrated a mix of lymph‐containing vessels and erythrocyte‐filled small vessels. Our results suggest that angiokeratomas may in part be comprised of vessels with lymphatic differentiation. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Usefulness of Ultrasonography in the Diagnosis of Neonatal Dacryocystocele
Abstract Neonatal dacryocystocele is an uncommon process that may evolve into acute dacryocystitis within the first weeks of life. Neonatal acute dacryocystitis must be treated promptly to avoid potential severe infectious complications. High‐frequency ultrasound is a noninvasive method of diagnosing dacryocystocele, facilitating early therapeutic intervention. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

A Novel Homozygous Missense Mutation in HOXC13 Leads to Autosomal Recessive Pure Hair and Nail Ectodermal Dysplasia
We describe a homozygous novel missense mutation in the HOXC13 gene that resulted in autosomal recessive PHNED in a Hispanic child. The mutation c.812A>G (p.Gln271Arg) is located within the DNA‐binding domain of the HOXC13 gene, cosegregates within the family, and is predicted to be maximally damaging. This is the first reported case of a missense HOXC13 mutation resulting in PHNED and the first reported case of PHNED identified in a North American family. Our findings illustrate the critical role of HOXC13 in human hair and nail development. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Compound Heterozygosity of Dominant and Recessive COL7A Alleles in a Severely Affected Patient with a Family History of Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa: Clinical Findings, Genetic Testing, and Treatment Implications
Abstract An 8‐year‐old girl born to a family with more than three generations of dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DDEB) presented with life‐threatening confluent skin erosions, mitten hand deformity, and failure to thrive. Reassessment of her family history and genetic testing showed compound heterozygous COL7A mutations, one inherited from her DDEB‐affected mother and one from her unaffected, healthy father. This family illustrates the risk of unexpected, severe, autosomal recessive epidermolysis bullosa (EB) in a family with milder, multigenerational autosomal dominant EB. Clinicians should recognize th...

Vismodegib Therapy for Basal Cell Carcinoma in an 8 ‐Year‐Old Chinese Boy with Xeroderma Pigmentosum
This article reports clearance of a nodular BCC of the nasal tip in an 8‐year‐old boy with xeroderma pigmentosum (XP). BCC can pose therapeutic challenges when located in areas that are not amenable to traditional therapies such as Mohs micrographic surgery or topical agents. Vismodegib was used at a dose of 150 mg/day to treat the boy's BCC. After 4 months of therapy, we achieved complete clinical clearance. During 21 months of follow‐up, the patient's nose remained clinically clear of tumor. Vismodegib was successfully used to treat a child with XP and nodular BCC. Our goal in using vismodegib was tu...

We report a case of severe psoriasis induced by biotherapies in an adolescent with CD that improved after switching to ustekinumab (90 mg at weeks 0, 2, and 4 and then every 8 weeks). The patient had not experienced CD relapse after 1 year of follow‐up. Ustekinumab can be an alternative therapy for psoriasis induced by biotherapies when conventional treatment fails and can maintain remission of CD. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Intragenic Copy Number Variation in the Filaggrin Gene in Ethiopian Patients with Atopic Dermatitis
Abstract Genetic variants in filaggrin (FLG) involving truncating mutations or intragenic copy number variation are strongly associated with the risk of developing atopic dermatitis (AD) in European and Asian populations. Few loss‐of‐function mutations have been identified in Africans, although an association between FLG copy number variation and AD severity in a small African American cohort has been proposed. We studied the association between FLG copy number and AD in 132 Ethiopians and found no association between AD severity and FLG copy number, suggesting that other, still unidentified genetic factors are of more...

Dermoscopy of Papular Epidermal Nevus with Skyline Basal Cell Layer
Abstract Papular epidermal nevus with skyline basal cell layer (PENS) is a newly described keratinocytic nevus whose dermoscopic characteristics have not been clarified. We used a dermatoscope to investigate the multiple PENSs of a patient with PENS syndrome. All the lesions shared a common dermoscopic homogeneous white pattern surrounded by peripheral, slightly dotted hyperpigmentation. The smallest lesions had no other features, whereas the largest lesions had some scaling, directly proportional to their dimension, and a central, clear, pink discoloration.

Transient Neonatal Zinc Deficiency Caused by a Novel Mutation in the SLC30A2 Gene
Abstract This is a case report of a 4‐month‐old full‐term, fully breastfed boy who presented with a persistent periorificial and groin rash associated with poor weight gain and irritability. His serum zinc level was low. The mother's breast milk zinc level was found to be low despite her serum zinc levels being normal, confirming the diagnosis of transient neonatal zinc deficiency. Mutational analysis revealed a novel mutation in the mother's SLC30A2 gene, which encodes a zinc transporter expressed in mammary gland epithelial cells. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Prevention of Flares in Children with Atopic Dermatitis with Regular Use of an Emollient Containing Glycerol and Paraffin: A Randomized Controlled Study
The objective of this study was to evaluate the benefit of emollient use in the management of mild to moderate AD in children by assessing the ability of two different emollients (particularly V0034CR) to prevent flares and to reduce the use of corticosteroids. MethodsIn this randomized, open‐label study, patients with a current flare were treated with a potent topical corticosteroid. After flare resolution, patients were centrally randomized to V0034CR emollient, reference emollient, or no emollient (1:1:1 ratio) for 12 weeks. New flares were medically assessed before being treated with a moderately potent corticosteroi...

Verrucae Planae Within Previous Xenograft Sites of Burn Wounds
We report a case of verrucae planae developing as a secondary condition confined to former xenograft sites in a child, appearing more than 3.5 years after initial second‐degree burn injuries. Only a few reports have previously described the development of verrucae in former burn sites, with most reporting latency to onset of verrucae appearance of months rather than years. Current hypotheses suggest that the postburn immune response shifts from an early proinflammatory to a late antiinflammatory response characterized by altered cytokine profiles and diminished cellular cytotoxicity mediated by cytotoxic T‐lymphocytes,...
