Monoclonal antibodies against the immune checkpoint programmed cell death receptor 1 (PD-1) improve the hosts' antitumor immune response and have showed tremendous promise in the treatment of advanced solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. Reports of serious autoimmune dermatologic toxicities from immune checkpoint blockade therapy, however, are(More)
IMPORTANCE The rise of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections in the outpatient setting has led to a growing trend of empirical antibiotic treatment for MRSA. The limited oral antibiotics available and the growing resistance to these antibiotics make this a controversial practice. OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of patients(More)
Acquired pigmentary disorders are group of heterogenous entities that share single, most significant, clinical feature, that is, dyspigmentation. Asians and Indians, in particular, are mostly affected. Although the classic morphologies and common treatment options of these conditions have been reviewed in the global dermatology literature, the value of(More)
Impingement, both prosthetic and bony, precedes the vast majority of dislocations after total hip arthroplasty and may adversely impact component wear. Reconstructed computer hip models of 8 subjects were used to evaluate hip range of motion for activities of daily living (ADLs) associated with posterior instability and anterior instability.

Herpes progenitalis can present in bizarre ways when seen in conjunction with altered immune status. In the recent past, a small number of individuals have been described with herpes vegetans, an exophytic, proliferative lesion that resembles either a verrucous or malignant growth. This phenomenon can occur on the digits, genitalia or perioral skin. We(More)
BACKGROUND Recently developed tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) offer first-line alternatives to patients with chronic myeloid leukemia. While these medications are generally well tolerated, cutaneous reactions occur frequently and can present a management challenge. We describe a newly recognized skin reaction to dasatinib and nilotinib and extend it to(More)
BACKGROUND Novel targeted agents have been increasingly developed and tested in clinical trials over the past 5-10 years, many with unknown and unanticipated side effects. We describe here a case of a patient with a history of metastatic follicular thyroid carcinoma that we believe developed vandetanib-associated photoallergic dermatitis while enrolled on a(More)
Basaloid follicular hamartoma is a rare but benign adnexal neoplasm that can simulate basal cell carcinoma. Both sporadic and familial variants have been described. We illustrate a family cluster of this unusual entity which presented as milia-like or hyperpigmented papules. Criteria for distinction between the hamartoma and carcinoma are delineated,(More)
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is an aggressive T-cell lymphoma characterized by strong and uniform expression of CD30. Brentuximab vedotin (BV), an anti-CD30 antibody-drug conjugate has been approved by the U.S. FDA for relapsed/refractory systemic ALCL and achieves improved outcomes. We report a 44-year-old African-American man who presented with(More)
