The main selected articles in pediatric dermatology covered the following topics: development and maturation of the epidermal barrier in the neonate, iatrogenic events in the neonatal ICU, diagnostic value of minor birthmarks, complications, risk factors and treatment of hemangiomas, coagulopathy in venous malformations, epidemiology and dermoscopy of congenital and acquired melanocytic nevi in childhood, growth of the body surface area, new pathogenic concepts and treatment in atopic… 


LUMBAR: association between cutaneous infantile hemangiomas of the lower body and regional congenital anomalies.
The acronym "LUMBAR" is proposed to describe the association of Lower body hemangioma and other cutaneous defects, Urogenital anomalies, Ulceration, Myelopathy, Bony deformities, Anorectal malformations, Arterial anomalies, and Renal anomalies.
Infantile hemangiomas with minimal or arrested growth: a retrospective case series.
Clinical characteristics of infantile hemangiomas with minimal or arrested growth have a distinct clinical appearance and a unique predilection for the lower body, and recognition of IH-MAGs will help in more accurate diagnosis of vascular birthmarks of infancy.
Early white discoloration of infantile hemangioma: a sign of impending ulceration.
Early white discoloration of infantile hemangioma is highly suggestive of impending ulceration, suggesting that a lack of substantial whiteDiscoloration early in infancy indicates low risk of ulcers.
Mitotic Recombination in Patients with Ichthyosis Causes Reversion of Dominant Mutations in KRT10
It is shown that ichthyosis with confetti, a severe, sporadic skin disease in humans, is associated with thousands of revertant clones of normal skin that arise from loss of heterozygosity on chromosome 17q via mitotic recombination.
Efficacy of propranolol in hepatic infantile hemangiomas with diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis.
The rapid and dramatic efficacy of propranolol was reported in 8 infants with infantile hepatic hemangiomas, with significant improvement in heart failure and hypothyroidism resolved, and hepatomegaly decreased.
Early Embryonic Chromosome Instability Results in Stable Mosaic Pattern in Human Tissues
The first evidence of somatic mosaicism for CNV is provided, with stable variation ratios in different cell types of one individual leading to the hypothesis of early embryonic chromosome instability resulting in stable mosaic pattern in human tissues.
Revertant mosaicism--patchwork in the skin.
To the Editor: Revertant mosaicism occurs when an inherited disease-causing mutation is corrected by a spontaneous genetic event within a somatic cell, followed by expansion of this reverted cell.1...
