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.

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.
