Pityriasis versicolor is a superficial fungal infection of the skin, characterized by pigmentary changes secondary to the colonization of the stratum corneum by a lipophilic dimorphic fungus known as Malassezia sp. Of this genus, 7 species known as the causative agent of pityriasis versicolor, the most frequently isolated species is M. Globosa. This skin disease occurs worldwide but predominates in the tropical, warm, and humid climate. Malassezia sp classified as dimorphic fungi since it behave...

Lupus Miliaris Disseminatus Faciei Treated By Isotretinoin and Platelet Rich Plasma

A Lahrichi, F Hali, K Baline, F Marnissi and S Chiheb

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 17, 2019

An 18-year-old patient presented with lupoid papulonodular lesions in the face. The diagnosis of disseminated lupus of the face was retained after eliminating other diagnoses including sarcoidosis, syphilis and leprosy. An antibacillary treatment was started without improvement for 3 months with onset of lesions. A 0.5 mg/kg/day isotretinoin treatment was started with improvement of the lesions. Thereafter, the patient benefited from 6 sessions of injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with sag...

Axillary Fox-Fordyce Disease Induced By Laser Hair Removal

Robustelli Test Elisa, Ferreli Caterina, Brundu Maria Angela, Atzori Laura, Pilloni Luca and Rongioletti Franco

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 15, 2019

Fox-Fordyce disease (FFD) is an uncommon chronic inflammatory skin disease of the apocrine sweat glands that could be considered as a rare adverse event of laser hair removal. It is postulated that laser therapy could induce damage to the follicular infundibulum, resulting in epidermal detachment and altered keratinocytes maturation which led to keratin plugging. Here, we present a case of a post-pubertal woman who developed axillary itchy lesions with clinical and histological features compatib...

Approaches to the Potential Use of Stromal Vascular Fraction and Coenzyme Q10 in Dermatological Aesthetics: A Systematic Review

Isabela de Lima Bocalon, Mayara Fernandes Veri Marques and Idiberto Jose Zotarelli Filho

Article Type: Research article | First Published: May 08, 2019

With aging, occurs a decrease in the number of melanocytes active enzymatically around 12.0% to 24.0% every ten years. As a treatment, stem cell therapy with adult stem cells has been the focus of many studies. Among adult stem cells, adipose-derived stem cells (ADSC) ubiquinone, known as coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), is a lipid-soluble antioxidant. It is shown to reduce lipid peroxidation of low-density lipoprotein regenerates endogenous vitamin E and protects cells against oxidative stress induced by ...

Remission of Psoriasis during Treatment with Apatinib in a Patient with Rectal Cancer

Daoqun Chong, Gai Ge, Dongmei Li, Yang Yang, Rong Wang, and Dongmei Shi, MD, PhD

Article Type: CASE REPORT | First Published: March 14, 2019

Psoriasis is a chronic, recurrent inflammatory skin disease characterized by abnormal keratinocyte proliferation and vascular hyperplasia. Apatinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor which has been reported to be effective in some tumors thought to be associated with inhibition of the proliferation of endothelial cells by selectively inhibiting vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 (VEGFR-2). We present a 54-year-old patient with a 30-year history of psoriasis, who did not respond well to or...

Use of Vibrational Optical Coherence Tomography to Image and Characterize a Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Frederick H Silver, Ruchit G Shah, Michael Richard and Dominick Benedetto

Article Type: ORIGINAL ARTICLE | First Published: March 08, 2019

Previous literature reports suggest that tissue stiffness is a predictor of cancer and metastatic behavior. We have used optical coherence tomography and vibrational analysis (VOCT) to characterize normal skin, scar and a verrucous carcinoma, a squamous cell carcinoma subtype, non-invasively and non-destructively. The results suggest that epidermal thickening and increased keratin production occur in verrucous carcinoma and lead to increases in surface hills and valleys as well as subsequent inc...

Article Type: CASE REPORT | First Published: February 28, 2019

Melanoma is the most aggressive skin cancer and its incidence continues to increase worldwide. Molecular targeted kinase inhibitors have improved survival and tumor response for those patients with BRAF mutant disease. We describe the case of a patient under treatment with BRAF and MEK inhibitors (BRAFi and MEKi) who presents cutaneous toxicity grade 3, as an adverse effect due to treatment....

Case of Th2 Cytokines in a Japanese Girl Who Acquired Hookworm-Related Cutaneous Larva

Makoto Kondo and Keiichi Yamanaka

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 11, 2019

One of the symptoms of creeping disease in humans is the accidental occurrence of hookworm-related cutaneous larva migrans (HrCLM). It usually occurs following contact with soil, sand, and mud found on beaches in tropical countries. Skin eruptions, such as linear nodules, appear on the foot and lower extremities. Misdiagnosis and inefficient treatment for travelers have often been reported. Although the parasite species remained unidentified in our case, the characteristic skin eruption in combi...
