Tuberous Sclerosis
Skinmed. 2021 Jun 1;19(3):179-185. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTTuberous sclerosis is a rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder. It is characterized by the appearance of benign tumors, known as hamartomas, which can affect multiple organs, including the skin. Cutaneous manifestations are present in almost all patients; therefore, the dermatologist has a fundamental role in the history and evolution of the disease in spite of being a multisystemic disorder. Two tumor suppressor genes, CET1 and CET2, involved in tissue growth and cell proliferation, show mutation in this disease, which leads to the appearance of various benign ...

Necrotizing Fasciitis (LRINEC): Epidemiology, Clinical Profiles, and Value of the Laboratory Risk Indicator in a Third-World Setting
Skinmed. 2021 Jun 1;19(3):197-202. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTAcute bacterial dermohypodermites (ABDH) are frequent soft tissue infections. When left untreated, they can lead to severe regional or general complications. Our study evaluated the role of Laboratory Risk Indicator for Necrotizing (LRINEC) in ABDH global care by early detection of patients associated with risk of complication. From January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2015, 221 patients were included. The prevalence of ABDH was 1.02%. Women were the most observed (115/221), with a sex ratio of 0.92. The mean age was 49.8 years, and the majority was between 45 and 59 y...

Skinmed. 2021 Jun 1;19(3):219-221. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTVisible (VIS) light (400-700 nm), including blue light (400-500 nm), represents approximately 50% of the full optical solar spectrum. It is known since 1938 that visible light penetrates the skin. Biologic markers to fully interpret the significance of such penetration were not utilized at that time to determine the potential damage caused to the skin. The mechanisms of VIS light-induced pigmentation and melanogenesis are currently being investigated by the skin care industry.PMID:34303394 (Source: Skinmed)
