Rapid, successful treatment of atopic dermatitis recalcitrant to topical corticosteroids
We describe the case of a young girl with a 2‐year history of atopic dermatitis resistant to triamcinolone whose condition rapidly improved with continued use of triamcinolone. Our case raises the ethical dilemma of whether physicians should base treatment plans on what patients report or what evidence on adherence suggests. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Wound infection after inpatient pediatric skin biopsy
Abstract Punch and shave biopsies are important dermatologic procedures in the inpatient setting but have a risk of wound infection. Data on the incidence of infection in this setting are limited and conflicting. This retrospective study of 127 pediatric inpatients at two tertiary care centers who underwent biopsy demonstrated a low overall risk of infection (n = 1, 0.8%). Twenty‐five (19.7%) were neutropenic, and 51 (40.2%) were not taking systemic antibiotics at the time of biopsy; none of these patients developed a wound infection. The overall low rate of infection should reassure physicians who are balancin...

Approach to the jewelry aficionado
Abstract Children's and teens’ frequent use of inexpensive “costume” jewelry exposes them to a variety of contact allergens. Greater use heightens the risk of developing allergic contact dermatitis, especially in the setting of body piercings. Several clinical pearls, prevention strategies, and avoidance alternatives are provided in this article to guide clinicians and patients in the management of jewelry‐related allergic contact dermatitis.

Delayed ‐type hypersensitivity to vaccine aluminum adjuvant causing subcutaneous leg mass and urticaria in a child
Abstract A 3‐year‐old girl presented with a 7‐month history of a waxing and waning left thigh mass associated with pruritus and erythema at the site of two previous DTaP‐HepB‐IPV vaccinations. Patch testing was positive to aluminum chloride, supporting a diagnosis of vaccine granuloma secondary to aluminum allergy; her symptoms had been well controlled with antihistamines and topical steroids. Injection site granulomas are a benign but potentially bothersome reaction to aluminum‐containing immunizations that can be supportively managed, and we encourage strict adherence to the recommended vaccine schedule in th...

Clinical features and nail clippings in 52 children with psoriasis
ConclusionThere seems to be a correlation between some microscopic nail features in children with psoriasis and their PASI and NAPSI scores, so nail clippings from children with suspected psoriasis may help with diagnosis, especially in the presence of neutrophils, and in excluding onychomycosis.

Acral pigmented Spitz nevus in a child with transepidermal migration of melanocytes: Dermoscopic and reflectance confocal microscopic features
We report a new case on the palm of a 4‐year‐old girl that demonstrated correlation between features observed on dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM). Histopathology revealed a benign intraepidermal Spitz nevus with transepidermal elimination of melanocytes that showed on RCM as focal atypical bright cells concerning for malignancy. This case is one of few reports in the literature combining dermoscopy, reflectance confocal microscopy, and histology for an acral Spitz nevi, which are rarely evaluated by RCM given the thickness of the stratum corneum in acral sites.

Potassium iodide in refractory, recurrent pediatric Sweet syndrome: Guidance in dosing and monitoring
We describe a 5‐month‐old boy with clinical and histopathologic presentation of Sweet syndrome. He responded to systemic corticosteroids, with multiple flares on tapering; potassium iodide was added, which provided complete resolution of Sweet syndrome. Potassium iodide has been used in only a few cases, and no standard dosage has been established in children. We discuss calculation of a pediatric dosage for potassium iodide in Sweet syndrome.

Vitiligoid variant of lichen sclerosus in young girls with darker skin types
ConclusionsThe girls presented in this series appear to have had vitiligoid lichen sclerosus, given the clinical overlap of lichen sclerosus and vitiligo affecting the anogenital region, particularly given that they did not have depigmented patches elsewhere on their body. Previous cases of vitiligoid lichen sclerosus have been reported in darker skin types, and our findings support this possible predisposition. It is important for clinicians to assess patients presenting with genital depigmentation for overlapping features of vitiligo and lichen sclerosus and determine appropriate management.

Use of topical therapies for pediatric psoriasis: A systematic review
Abstract Psoriasis is one of the most common chronic skin diseases, affecting 1%‐3% of the general population. It can have a significant negative impact on a patient's quality of life, and in approximately 30% of patients first symptoms can be traced back to childhood. We have performed a comprehensive literature search using the MEDLINE database in order to ascertain the efficacy and adverse reactions of topical treatments in pediatric psoriasis. A total of 13 relevant articles were identified on the following topical agents: corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, vitamin D analogs, and dithranol. Corticosteroids achi...

Risk of intraocular and other extracutaneous involvement in patients with cutaneous juvenile xanthogranuloma
ConclusionCutaneous juvenile xanthogranulomas are generally limited to the skin. Because eye involvement is rare, a routine eye examination is of low yield and probably not warranted in children with no ocular or visual symptoms. New recommendations for systemic screening could not be drawn from this study. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Congenital Langerhans cell histiocytosis presenting in a 27 ‐week‐gestation neonate
We present a case of Langerhans cell histiocytosis limited to a single cutaneous lesion, presenting in a 27‐week‐gestation infant, which is the youngest gestational age of reported Langerhans cell histiocytosis cases. The lesion showed spontaneous resolution by 41 weeks corrected gestational age, and systemic involvement was absent, demonstrating a mild course of skin‐only Langerhans cell histiocytosis in a premature infant.

Herpes zoster at the vaccination site in immunized healthy children
Abstract In this case series, we report seven immunized healthy children without underlying immunodeficiency who presented with herpes zoster that correlated with varicella‐zoster vaccination site. The morphology of the lesions included erythematous papules, pseudovesicles, and plaques, with associated pain in two and pruritus in three patients; systemic symptoms ranged from none to low‐grade fevers, upper respiratory symptoms, and joint pain. These cases highlight the clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic implications of herpes zoster in vaccinated children. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)
