Ideally, resource allocation for biomedical research, especially federal funding, should accurately reflect disease burden, the potential for better understanding of biological processes, and the quality of the research. Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), a health metric that measures years lost due to premature mortality or disability associated with a health condition, ...

The 2-step algorithm in dermosopy was initially developed for the diagnosis of melanoma: The first step aims to decide whether the lesion is a melanocytic or nonmelanocytic neoplasm; the clinician seeks the presence of diagnostic criteria for a melanocytic neoplasm (network, aggregated globules or streaks) or for a specific nonmelanocytic ...

José Gay Prieto, born on January 17, 1905, was one of the most renowned Spanish dermatologists. He greatly contributed to the development of dermatology in Spain and around the world.1- 3 He was trained at the San Carlos Clinical Hospital in Madrid, where he excelled academically and stood out for ...
The study by Wataya-Kaneda et al1 in this issue of JAMA Dermatology examines the response of hypopigmented macules in tuberous sclerosis (TS) to topical rapamycin. The authors found that topical rapamycin, 0.2%, gel led to substantial improvement of hypopigmented macules without systemic absorption and that the improvement was more marked ...
The topical calcineurin inhibitors tacrolimus and pimecrolimus are useful and effective anti-inflammatory immunomodulator adjuncts in managing atopic dermatitis (AD). Unfortunately, because of the increased risk of lymphoma in transplant recipients receiving systemic tacrolimus and because of malignant neoplasms in animal studies with pimecrolimus, their use as topical agents has raised ...

Importance  Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder leading to the aberrant activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1. Although the efficacy of mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 inhibitors against tumors in patients with TSC, including facial angiofibroma, has been well investigated, ...

Importance  A black box warning describes a potential risk of malignancy associated with topical use of pimecrolimus to treat atopic dermatitis due to its similarity to oral calcineurin inhibitors used in solid-organ transplantation and spontaneous reporting of malignancies, including lymphomas and cutaneous malignancies.

Objective  To evaluate ...

Importance  Recent data demonstrated somatic mutations in GJB2 that were present in affected porokeratotic eccrine ostial and dermal duct nevus (PEODDN) tissue but absent in unaffected skin. Recognizing that PEODDN lesions can also appear in individuals with keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness syndrome and finding somatic mutations in their cohort, the ...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) (acne inversa; OMIM 142690) is a chronic skin condition associated with the formation of painful, suppurative, and scarring nodules that primarily affect the axillary, inguinal, and perineal areas. Heterozygous mutations in the γ-secretase genes have been identified in the pathogenesis of autosomal dominant forms of HS in ...
