Review Article Volume 2 Issue 1
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.

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.

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.

Abstract: In November 2015, an 83-year-old male with a history of cataracts and multiple sites of actinic keratosis in the head treated with cryotherapy, presented with a 7 mm by 5 mm erythematous papule on the right parietal scalp, located closely to a pigmented macule which had been previously biopsied with a diagnosis of lentigo simplex. There had been previous attempts to treat this lesion with cryotherapy which were unsuccessful. An excisional biopsy was planned and performed in December 2015, with secondary intention healing.
Review Article Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a genodermatosis that results in increased sensitivity to UV-radiation, resulting in early onset of photodamage and skin cancers. There are eight XP subtypes, seven due to variable defects in the nucleotide excision repair pathway and one due to a defect in translesion synthesis. Patients with XP have mucocutaneous, ocular, and sometimes neurologic manifestations.
