) to a specialist with experience of melanoma diagnosis is required for: Lesions suggestive of malignant melanoma (including nodular and amelanotic melanoma). Lesions which score 3 points or more (based on major features scoring 2 points each and minor features scoring 1 point each) on the 7-point checklist. However, any one feature can be adequate to prompt urgent referral. New nodules, which are pigmented, or vascular in appearance. Nail changes, such as a new pigmented line in the nail or something growing (...) under the nail. Any doubt about the diagnosis of the lesion. Skin conditions which are persistent or slowly evolving and unresponsive to treatment, with an uncertain diagnosis and melanoma is a possibility. Biopsy confirmed diagnosis of malignant melanoma. Excision of suspected melanoma in primary care should be avoided. Have I got the right topic? Have I got the right topic? From age 1 month onwards.

Transcriptomic analysis of FUCA1 knockdown in keratinocytes reveals new insights in the pathogenesis of fucosidosis skin lesions. Fucosidosis is a rare lysosomal storage disease which has been classified into two subtypes, depending on the severity of clinical signs and symptoms. Fucosidosis patients' skin abnormalities include angiokeratoma corporis diffusum, widespread telangiectasia, thick skin, hyperhidrosis and hypohidrosis, acrocyanosis and distal transverse nail bands. It has been

Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia can mimick SCC developed on chronic inflammation, while metastatic squamous cell carcinoma can only be suspected from the context (...) ) and late side effects (atrophy, hair loss, pigmentary changes, fibrosis, lymphoedema and telangiectasia) are common and their incidence depends on the type of RT, the area treated, the extent of tumor destruction, the dose delivered and the fractionation, with only few late side effects if the dose delivered in multiple small daily fractions. Elective nodal surgery and sentinel node biopsy Elective lymph node dissection is not recommended in cSCC, because of the low probability of metastases in most

The lesions consist of friable 7 telangiectasia with patchy erythema which are responsible for the common symptoms of postcoital bleeding, dyspareunia and a variable discharge which is often serosanguinous.

Clinical features suggestive of an underlying disease. Positive anti-nuclear antibody tests. Abnormal nail-fold capillaries (although this may be difficult to determine). Digital ulcers.

overlapping deletions of chromosome 9q33.3q34.11, including the STXBP1, the LMX1B and the ENG genes. We restrained the selection to these three genes because the effects of their haploinsufficency are well described in the literature and easily recognizable clinically. All deletions were detected by array-CGH and confirmed by FISH. The patients display common clinical features, including intellectual disability with epilepsy, owing to the presence of STXBP1 within the deletion, nail dysplasia and bone (...) malformations, in particular patellar abnormalities attributed to LMX1B deletion, epistaxis and cutaneous-mucous telangiectasias explained by ENG haploinsufficiency and common facial dysmorphism. This systematic analysis of the genes comprised in the deletion allowed us to identify genes whose haploinsufficiency is expected to lead to disease manifestations and complications that require personalized follow-up, in particular for renal, eye, ear, vascular and neurological manifestations.

The steroid can provide rapid relief from the inflammatory component of the infection, but the steroid should only be applied for the first few days of treatment. Prolonged use of steroids can lead to persistent and recurrent infections, longer duration of treatment regimens, and adverse effects of skin atrophy, striae, and telangiectasias.

These changes may progress to the point that the nail sheds. Diagnosis Histopathologic analysis of samples from the affected sites reveals nonspecific changes, including hyperkeratosis, acanthosis, parakeratosis, and dyskeratotic keratinocytes. Perivascular lymphocytic infiltrates are variably present with eosinophils and neutrophils. Direct immunofluorescence is also nonspecific. The diagnosis is based on the characteristic distribution of skin changes. The main entity
