Trichothiodystrophy is characterized by sparse, short, sulfur-deficient hair. Numerous symptom complexes have been described in which the hair abnormality represents a constant feature. We report a boy with trichothiodystrophy, ichthyotic skin changes, onychodystrophy, chronic neutropenia, osteosclerosis, hypothyroidism, nystagmus, growth and mental(More)
BACKGROUND Lentigo maligna (LM) is a pigmented neoplasm on sun-exposed skin of elderly patients. LM slowly increases in size and may become lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM), a potentially fatal malignancy. Complete excision is the treatment of choice. Mohs' micrographic surgery (MMS) with frozen and permanent sections may be used for complete eradication of(More)
BACKGROUND We previously reported our experience using Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) for 45 patients with lentigo maligna (LM) and lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM). The patients were treated between 1985 and 1992. In our initial publication, all of the patients were free of local disease and evidence of metastases at an average of 29.2 months after therapy.(More)
Data from experimentally induced cutaneous vasculitis have suggested that the inflammatory infiltrate is dynamic. In contrast, data from humans with cutaneous vasculitis have suggested that two distinct patterns of cellular infiltrate exist, a mononuclear-predominant and a neutrophilic-predominant type. There are little data regarding the temporal evolution(More)
The safety and efficacy of treating individuals who presented with multiple actinic keratosis (AK) lesions with 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) in combination with photodynamic therapy (PDT) were documented in a phase III trial. This report highlights results of this phase III trial and reviews 4 specific cases of sustained AK lesion clearance 4 years after(More)
A patient with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia developed a painful scrotal ulcer thought initially to be caused by infection. The lesion failed to heal with oral antibiotic therapy and local wound care. Histopathologic examination of a biopsy specimen revealed an infiltrate of leukemic cells. This cutaneous lesion heralded the relapse of acute myelogenous(More)
Lentigo maligna (LM) is a pigmented lesion occurring on sun-exposed skin that may become lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM). The tumor can behave in an aggressive fashion, causing significant cosmetic disfigurement, often extending significantly further than the clinical margin. Complete surgical excision is the treatment of choice. We describe a 74-year-old(More)
