The novel probiotic BIOHM, consisting of Bifidobacterium breve, Saccharomyces boulardii, Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, and amylase, was developed to rebalance the bacterial–fungal gut microbiome, w...

Background: Pure and mixed desmoplastic melanomas (DMs) may have different natural histories and behaviors. Methods: We conducted a retrospective review of patients diagnosed with DM at our institution between January 1997 and April 2019. A total of 33 unique DMs were identified and subsequently analyzed based on the histologic type (pure vs. mi...

Tumor development is the result of genetic derangement and the inability to prevent unfettered proliferation. Genetic derangements leading to tumorigenesis are variable, but the immune system plays a critical role in tumor development, prevention, and production. In this chapter, we will discuss the importance of the immune system as it relates to...

T helper 2 (Th2) and T helper 1 (Th1) mediated immune processes lie on a spectrum. Autoeczematization secondary to chronic stasis dermatitis may fall on the Th2 side of the spectrum due to skin stretch and chronic barrier dysfunction, supporting a primary Th2 response to self-antigen. In our patient, we posited that dupilumab would benefit autoecze...

Dabigatran is a broad used new anticoagulant that recently was described to trigger pustular psoriasis. We describe a 49‐year‐old Caucasian male with psoriasis that after switching from warfarin to dabigatran developed acute generalised exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP). Remarkably we hypothesized a mechanism based increased lipid peroxidation via ca...

Gottron papules, a heliotrope rash, scalp and extremity erythema, pruritus, and fatigue are the characteristic signs and symptoms of amyopathic dermatomyositis (ADM). Amyopathic dermatomyositis is considered a distinct entity from dermatomyositis (DM) because the characteristic muscle weakness and muscle enzyme elevations of DM are absent in ADM. W...

The effects of diversity of the gut microbiome on inflammation have centered mainly on bacterial flora. Recent research has implicated fungal species and their interactions with other organisms in the inflammatory process. New ways to restore microbial balance in the gut are being explored. Our goal was to identify beneficial probiotic strains that...

To the Editor We applaud McDonald et al for publishing “The PHQ-2 in Dermatology—Standardized Screening for Depression and Suicidal Ideation.”¹ The importance of this work cannot be overemphasized. We agree that dermatologists are uniquely situated to identify psychiatric concerns related to skin disease, and the PHQ-2 (Patient Health Questionnaire...
