Importance  Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is a disease that features blistering of the skin and mucous membranes caused by autoantibodies directed against desmoglein 3 (Dsg3) and/or desmoglein 1 (Dsg1). Indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) are 2 methods that are widely used to measure Dsg3 or ...

Importance  Bites from the brown recluse spider (BRS) can cause extreme pain. We propose cytokine release as a cause of the discomfort and a central mechanism through glial cell upregulation to explain measured pain levels and time course.

Observations  Twenty-three BRS bites were scored at a ...

Bacillary angiomatosis (BA) is a life-threatening infection caused by gram-negative organisms of the genus Bartonella that can be cured with appropriate therapy. The clinical manifestations of this infection are diverse, and a high index of suspicion and histopathologic analysis are often required to make the diagnosis.1

Importance  Nontuberculous mycobacterial infections of the skin can be seen in cases of immunosuppression and/or traumatic implantation of contaminated objects. Surgical settings with appropriate sterilization techniques have been immune to these types of infections. We report a case of nosocomially derived infection from a sterile procedure.

Patients taking BRAF inhibitors develop new primary melanomas and nevi. Many of these neoplasms are BRAF wild-type,1 which may be due to the paradoxical activation of the RAF/MEK/ERK pathway via an alternative driver mutation, similar to the mechanism involved in inducing the development of squamous cell carcinomas in these patients.2 ...

Orbital fat herniation frequently presents as a prominent unilateral mass near the lateral canthus of the eye, where it poses a fundamental question: benign or malignant? As dermatologists, we will encounter this seldom-described benign mass. The differential diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment options are discussed in the context of a patient ...

Importance  Asteatotic eczema (eczema craquelé, xerotic eczema) occurs most frequently in areas of dehydrated skin, most often during the winter months when decreased humidity results in increased water loss from the stratum corneum.

Alemtuzumab, a CD52 monoclonal antibody, is increasingly used for treating advanced cutaneous T-cell lymphomas including Sézary syndrome (SS). While injection site reactions are common, the finding of localized cutaneous hemophagocytosis at the injection site without systemic hemophagocytosis is rare.
