Managing Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Authors: Elisabete Campos and Helena Bessa

Abstract: Hidradenitis suppurativa is a debilitating chronic skin disease often failure to recognise by healthcare professionals with an average of diagnostic delay of seven years, that has resulted in misdiagnosis and mismanagement of many patients. Knowledge of the pathogenesis is limited, although it seems to be associated with follicular obstruction, follicular rupture and an associated immune response. The inflammatory cascade leads to recurrent abscesses, suppurative dermal tunnels and fibrosis.

Under Pressure: Optimizing Intralesional Keloid Injections

Authors: Mallory K Smith, MD, David M Oberlin, MD and David M Ozog, MD

Abstract: Keloids are benign fibroblastic tumors of the skin, due to aberrant tissue remodeling in predisposed individuals. Although the pathogenesis is unknown, keloids are a common concern in dermatology. While numerous treatment options exist, the use of intralesional corticosteroids has endured the test of time as an effective and safe modality for management.

Remission of In-Transit Melanoma following Combination BRAF and MEK Inhibition Therapy: A Case Report

Authors: S Caleb Freeman, Edibaldo Silva and Christopher Huerter

Abstract: Satellite and in-transit melanoma represent the metastasis of cutaneous melanoma along lymphatics between the primary lesion and the regional lymph nodes. In-transit melanoma often presents as a reoccurrence of previously resected melanoma, and as such is associated with a poorer prognosis than primary melanoma.
