cider vinegar. [...] Key Result It is possible that there was less absorption of the acetic acid in the thickest portion of the mollusca contagiosa papules, leading to the purple rims. The chemical burns healed without intervention. The mollusca did not respond to the acetic acid therapy but subsequently resolved with topical cantharidin. The US Food and Drug Administration mandates that vinegars contain a minimum of 4% acetic acid; however, the concentrations of acetic acid found in commercially available…Expand
Clinical and dermoscopic characteristics of extramammary Paget disease: a study of 35 cases
Investigation of clinical and dermoscopic patterns of EMPD could elucidate further characteristics of this rare tumour and aid early diagnosis and treatment for a favourable prognosis. Expand
“Pigmented Extramammary Paget Disease”—A Potential Mimicker of Malignant Melanoma and a Pitfall in Diagnosis: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Application of a panel of immunostains and careful analysis and interpretation of these findings are essential to arrive at the correct diagnosis of PEMPD, which has the potential to be misdiagnosed clinically and histopathologically as malignant melanoma in situ. Expand
Penoscrotal Paget's disease.
Paget's disease (PD) denotes an initially intra-epidermal adenocarcinoma that can later invade the dermis and metastasise, and penoscrotal EMPD is less frequently associated with underlying neoplasia than mammary PD (MPD). Expand
Dysplastic Melanocytic Nevi of the Lower Leg: Sex- and Site-Specific Histopathology
As with other body sites, the dermatopathologist should be aware that dysplastic nevi occurring on the lower leg in women have site- and sex-specific features and knowing this profile may lower the risk of misdiagnosing DN-LW and melanoma of theLower leg of women. Expand

Although biopsy is required for a definitive diagnosis, dermatoscopy is useful to identify atypical and suspicious pigmentary lesions and presence of few characteristic findings can aid in the diagnosis. Expand
The diagnosis and management of extramammary Paget’s disease
The current knowledge of EMPD is explored to improve the management of this disease, and dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy have emerged as new diagnostic tools for EMPD. Expand
Dermoscope‐guided lesional biopsy to diagnose EMA+ CK7+ CK20+ extramammary Paget's disease with an extensive lesion
Two cases were diagnosed with malignant syphilis due to clinical and biopsy presentations and they have improved lesions after the treatment, which differs from the conventional syphilis evolution in the immunocompetent due to CD4 T-cell depletion that occurs in HIV infection. Expand
A review of non‐invasive imaging in extramammary Paget's disease
The literature on non‐invasive imaging modalities used in EMPD is reviewed and dermoscopy, PDD, RCM and OCT can identify atypical cells in real‐time, and have the potential to improve the accuracy of surgical margins intraoperatively and overall management. Expand
Dermoscopy of genital diseases: a review
Genital dermoscopy should always be considered during clinical inspection in order to enhance the diagnosis or to rule out those conditions that may look similar but that show a different dermos copy pattern, thus narrowing down the differential diagnoses and avoiding unnecessary invasive investigations.

Erythematous plaques of the vulvo‐perineal region: diagnostic role of dermatoscopy
Clinical examination showed well-demarcated, erythematous, eczema-like plaques in the vulvar and perianal region, and the patient was otherwise healthy, and blood tests were within normal limits. Expand


A case report of a chemical burn due to the misuse of glacial acetic acid.
A 28-year-old female patient was admitted to the authors' hospital with deep second-degree chemical burns on her face caused by the application of a mixture of glacial acetic acid and flour for chemical peeling, and hypertrophic scarring developed on the both nasolabial folds despite scar management.

Chemical burn from acetic acid with deep ulceration
In vitro lymphocyte reactivity to heavy metal salts in the diagnosis of oral mucosal hypersensitivity to amalgam restoration and cutaneous pseudolymphoma resulting from antigen injections is studied. Expand
Pigmented Paget Disease - A Diagnostic Pitfall Mimicking Melanoma
7 cases of pigmented extramammary and mammary Paget disease are described and characterize and it is confirmed that the immunolabeling corresponded to cytoplasmic labeling of melanocyte dendrites surrounding tumor cells. Expand
