Aquagenic wrinkling of the palms in patients with cystic fibrosis homozygous for the delta F508 CFTR mutation.
TLDR
The association with cystic fibrosis, and with marasmus and cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors, suggests that exposure of the skin to abnormally high concentrations of salt may play a role in its pathogenesis. Expand
Novel C16orf57 mutations in patients with Poikiloderma with Neutropenia: bioinformatic analysis of the protein and predicted effects of all reported mutations
TLDR
In cohorts of patients clinically affected by genodermatoses with overlapping symptoms, the molecular screening of C16orf57 gene seems the proper way to address the correct diagnosis of PN, enabling the syndrome-specific oncosurveillance. Expand
Rice nightmare: Kwashiorkor in 2 Philadelphia-area infants fed Rice Dream beverage.
TLDR
Two infants each presented with a diffuse dermatitis, whole body edema, and hypoalbuminemia and were diagnosed with kwashiorkor, which resolved with protein supplementation. Expand

Methicillin‐Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Colonization in Children with Atopic Dermaitis
TLDR
Investigation of the prevalence of risk factors for community‐associated, methicillin‐resistant S. aureus colonization among pediatric atopic dermatitis patients encountered at an academic pediatric dermatology clinic finds that topical calcineurin inhibitors used in conjunction with topical steroids is associated with increased S.A. aUREus colonization, while topical antibiotic use appears to decrease S.aureus Colonization. Expand
Subcutaneous fat necrosis as a complication of whole-body cooling for birth asphyxia.
TLDR
A neonate who developed an abscess-like presentation of SCFN and subsequent asymptomatic hypercalcemia after undergoing whole-body cooling for hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is described. Expand
Two novel TP63 mutations associated with the ankyloblepharon, ectodermal defects, and cleft lip and palate syndrome: a skin fragility phenotype.
TLDR
The presence of skin fragility, manifested as erosive skin lesions in body areas in addition to the scalp, is postulated to be an important diagnostic feature of AEC syndrome. Expand
Leclercia Adecarboxylata Cellulitis in a Child with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
TLDR
A case of an 8‐year‐old boy with significant past medical history of acute lymphobastic leukemia who developed cellulitis due to local infection by L. adecarboxylata is presented to raise awareness of this rare organism’s ability to cause common cutaneous disease, especially in the immunocompromised.
