Pilomatricoma Associated with Kabuki Syndrome
We report three cases of pilomatricomas associated with Kabuki syndrome (KS), supporting the hypothesis proposed of an association between pilomatricomas and KS and suggesting a noncoincidental association, because the Wnt pathway mutations involved could affect both morphogenesis and tumorigenesis in these patients.

Case of Pediatric Bullous Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Treated with Intravenous Immunoglobulin
Abstract This is a case report of a 16‐year‐old girl recently diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who presented with multiple blisters on the face, hands, arms, legs, trunk, and vaginal and oral mucosa. Skin biopsy was consistent with bullous SLE (BSLE). Dapsone is often the first‐line treatment option for BSLE, but the patient's history of anemia and leukopenia and long‐term immunosuppression requirement for her systemic symptoms raised concerns about dapsone and bone marrow toxicity, especially hemolytic anemia and agranulocytosis. She was started on intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG), 2 g/kg divided...

Congenital Milium of the Nipple
Abstract A 12‐month‐old girl presented with an asymptomatic, pearly nodule on the left nipple that had been present from birth and was currently 3 mm in diameter and growing. Assuming the diagnosis of congenital primary milium of the nipple, we took a “wait and see” approach. After 3 months, the pearl disappeared without any scarring. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Retrospective Study of Nasal Infantile Hemangiomas: Characteristics, Complications, and Outcomes
ConclusionNasal IHs had higher rates of complications and treatment than previous reports of IHs at all body sites. Lesions of segmental and indeterminate type and mixed depth should be identified as high risk and treated accordingly. Parents may be counseled that most nasal IHs involute by kindergarten but leave residua and that early referral for treatment may be important for the best outcome. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Trends in Pediatric Laboratory ‐Diagnosed Onychomycosis Between 2006 and 2014 in the Southwest of England
Abstract This is the largest study of laboratory‐diagnosed onychomycosis in England for children younger than 17 years. The most common (91.5%) cultured organism in this population was Trichophyton rubrum. Candida species were isolated only from fingernails, and the majority were from children younger than 5 years. Continued analysis of fungal pathogens is vital to identify changing trends. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Because neutrophils and macrophages are implicated in elastin metabolism and degradation pathways, immune dysregulation might be another etiologic factor to be considered in this rare disease.

Lesion Morphology in Multifocal Infantile Hemangiomas
Abstract Background/ObjectivesMultifocal infantile hemangiomas (MIHs; previously called neonatal hemangiomatosis) can be associated with extracutaneous hemangiomas. We observed different morphologic types of hemangiomas in children with MIHs and sought to find out whether they are related to the clinical course. MethodsThis was a retrospective study of 103 infants with MIHs and a control group of 261 age‐matched patients with solitary focal infantile hemangiomas (IHs) seen at an academic pediatric dermatology department between 2004 and 2014. ResultsTwo morphologic subtypes of hemangiomas were identified: miliary focal h...

Cutaneous Manifestations of Mucopolysaccharidoses
Abstract Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPSs) are a group of inherited lysosomal storage disorders characterized by deficiencies in specific enzymes involved in the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). These deficiencies cause excessive metabolites to accumulate in multiple organs. There are eight different MPS disorders, contributing to the wide variation in clinical presentation. Depending on the severity and subtype of the disease, some children live normal life spans, while others have a more grim prognosis. Children with MPS can present with neurologic, behavioral, skeletal, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, or respirator...

Management of Head Louse Infestations in the United States —A Literature Review
Abstract Head lice are a source of scalp irritation, social disruption, and loss of school time. Health care providers need authoritative information to help avoid the costs and risks of ineffective treatment. A review was completed to provide relevant information on infestation treatments available in the United States. Three major biomedical databases were searched from 1985, when current products were first available, to 2014, focusing on U.S. reports. A total of 579 references remained after duplicates were removed. A search of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website and labels of approved products were reviewed....

Pharmacologic Treatment of Vitiligo in Children and Adolescents: A Systematic Review
ConclusionsThe main outcome measurements were morphometric analysis performed using a computer program, hematologic or biochemical change, and photography (predominant). It is unclear which was the most effective treatment for vitiligo, however, it was found that these therapies are all promising in the treatment of the disease. With proper care, disease control and repigmentation, even if partial, can be achieved. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Omenn Syndrome Presenting with Striking Erythroderma and Extreme Lymphocytosis in a Newborn
Abstract Omenn syndrome is an autosomal recessive form of “leaky” severe combined immune deficiency resulting in distinct phenotypic features. The patient described herein had an atypical presentation of Omenn syndrome, with conspicuous erythroderma and extreme lymphocytosis at birth, in contrast to the typical evolution of rash seen during the first few weeks of life. In addition, the skin findings were secondary to infiltration of CD8+ (cytotoxic) T‐cells in contrast to the CD4+ (helper) T‐cells typically seen, which broadens the Omenn syndrome phenotype.

A New Scale for Assessing the Severity of Uncomplicated Diaper Dermatitis in Infants: Development and Validation
Abstract BackgroundOne methodologic challenge in conducting research relating to diaper dermatitis (DD) is the absence of a reliable, objective, validated scale for assessing severity. The aim of this study was to develop and validate such a scale. MethodsScale development was based on experience of DD assessment and clinical and photographic data collected during the early stages of a randomized controlled trial of two DD treatments. The severity score is the sum of scores of four domains: severity of erythema and irritation, area with any DD, papules or pustules, and open skin. Possible scores range from 0 (clear skin) t...

Spontaneous Regression of a Congenital Melanocytic Nevus by Sclerosis
We report the case of a 5‐year‐old child with complete resolution of a medium‐sized CMN involving the distal left leg and foot via sclerosis and in the absence of any halo phenomenon. Spontaneous regression of CMN via sclerosis is rare, and it is thought that an immunologic mechanism different from the mechanism that the halo phenomenon induces mediates this regression. We reviewed the literature on this phenomenon and discuss how it might lead to regression of the nevus. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)
