Abstract: Oral leukoplakia (OL) is certainly the most relevant lesion
that affects the oral mucosa, since it has an intrinsic potential
for malignant transformation, specifically to squamous
cell carcinoma (OSCC); and, besides, constitutes an important
issue on clinical assessment. Thus far, no treatment (or management)
can prevent the risk of malignant transformation
of OL. It is said that surgical approach can reduce (but not
eliminate) the odds of OL to develop into OSCC

Abstract: Aneurysmal dermatofibroma is a rare variant of cutaneous fibrous histiocytoma (dermatofibroma) thought to be
secondary to slow extravasation of blood into the lesion. The resulting entities have different clinical and pathological
presentations that can lead to diagnostic confusion with other types of skin lesions. We discuss the defining features
of aneurysmal dermatofibroma to outline important considerations in the differential to avoid potential misdiagnosis.

Abstract: Sebaceous adenomas are rare adnexal tumors that are associated with Muir-Torre syndrome. Although sebaceous adenomas are considered benign entities, this is controversial. It has been suggested that sebaceous adenomas are actually low-grade sebaceous carcinomas. In this report, we defend the view that sebaceous adenomas are in fact low-grade sebaceous carcinomas by presenting a lesion with a clinical presentation typical for sebaceous carcinoma with histopathology characteristic of sebaceous adenoma.

There are three main categories of CVG: primary essential, primary nonessential and secondary. Primary essential is idiopathic and presents only with cutaneous alterations.
