COMMENTS ON THE ARTICLES

A STUDY ON THE CUTANEOUS MANIFESTATIONS OF DIABETES MELLITUS


Prof. Anaparthy Usharani (India)
1. In the Study sample was less.
2. Blood sugar levels were not mentioned.
3. Introduction and discussion were good.
4. Recording the blood sugar levels at the time of examination or while sending the samples for investigations is very appropriate in categorizing the lesions.

Dr. Metowogo Kossi, PhD (Togo)
A study on the cutaneous manifestations of Diabetes mellutus is a good prospective study conducted to understand the manifestation of skin disease in diabetics. The results are interesting and should be subject to scientific publication. However the number of patients used in the study seems low to generate more results. The results are well presented except the titles of tables which must preceded tables.


A STUDY ON THE CLINICAL AND HORMONAL PROFILE OF PATIENTS WITH HIRSUTISM

Dr. Jorge Lopez-Granja (Belize)
I found this article very useful. In countries like Belize, where some of the blood tests (DHEA-S, androstenedione) have to be sent abroad and most of the population cannot afford their cost, this study reinforces the notion of prioritizing blood tests that best relate to the clinical findings in a given patient. Congratulations to the authors.


CYTOTOXIC AND ANTIGEN PRESENTING CELLS, AND NON-BASEMENT MEMBRANE ZONE PATHOLOGY IN A CASE OF BULLOUS PEMPHIGOID

Prof. Sundaramoorthy Srinivasan (India)
The research article "Cytotoxic and antigen presenting cells and non basement membrane zone pathology in a case of bullous pemphigoid" presented by the team led by Ana Maria Abreu Velez et. al., is an eye opener for all dermatologists – teachers and practitioners – to bring to our folds the cardiologists and neurologists for complete evaluation of the patient diagnosed with bullous pemphigoid (BP). This will help us to prolong the life as well as prevevent complications. Interactions and exchange of views and materials around the world will further widen our knowledge on BP.


A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF CARRIER STATE OF CANDIDA AND ITS SPECIATION IN ORAL FLORA – AMONG HEALTHY INDIVIDUALS, PERSONS WITH DM AND HIV SERO POSITIVE INDIVIDUALS

Dr. Alexandro Bonifaz (Mexico)
The paper “A comparative study of carrier state of Candida and its speciation in oral flora among healthy individuals, persons with DM and HIV sero-positive individuals”, is very interesting and it is of little investigations in that compare the flora in three groups of individuals. The results that they obtain are the awaited ones, where the major number of Candida spp., are given in patients HIV patients. The interesting of the results is that they obtain in both groups a high percentage of C. glabrata, this due to the major resistance that have these strains against fluconazole. Studies of this type allow having an idea more precise on the behavior of the Candida strains in in diverse groups.

Dr. Mohamed Wael Daboul (Syria)
Margerida Martins et al from Portugal isolated candida from 54.6% from a dental clinic, and the findings of this study reveal that Carriage rate was high in HIV seropositive individuals (54%) when compared to other two groups, healthy and diabetics persons. How could the study from Portugal be classified with its very high rate of candida when compared to this study?

Dr. Luiz Alberto Mota (Brazil)
I think that this article it is the start of many others, maybe with differents groups of patients as in private health and public health for example. But, the most important, it is the direction of differencial diagnosis that we can do mainly, in cases that we do not know if we have to treat single strain or combination of strains microorganism. We must not think only in the most common. We have to remember the exceptions in the cases of HIV seropositives and diabetics.


DERMOSCOPY OF HEAD MELANOMA-CASE STUDIES AND REVIEW OF REFERENCES

Dr. Leo Cabrijan (Croatia)
I read a paper you sent to me and I thought is good case report(s). In my opinnion is good for average dermoscopy to think about these possibilty of development melanoma at this localisation, so we have not to forget examine scalp during dermoscopy.

Dr. Manuel Valdebran (Dominican Republic)
The authors have doubts about their findings in figure #4. They should had expressed why they were inconclusive and not just put the "vs". In the reviewer's opinion, it wouldn't be valid to mention it as the poppyfield sign since there are no dots in the image. There should be a short discussion about the dermoscopy findings themselves and their relationship with the histology. There was no mention of the dermoscopy pattern differences of the differential diagnosis such as non-blue nevi. Finally, it shouldn't be forgotten that scalp nevi in children or teenagers may indicate a tendency to develop multiple nevi. A greater than average total nevus count is a condition associated to the development of cutaneous melanoma in adulthood, thus it is recommended to perform regular total body skin examination of those individuals [1].

Prof. Maurice E. Asuquo (Nigeria)
The authors present 2 cases of head-melanoma and discuss the prominent clinical and dermoscopy features of hidden melanoma and differential diagnosis. They recommend clinico-dermoscopic skin examination of the scalp. I congratulate the authors and call on researchers to direct further research on the value of dermoscopy in the evaluation of skin lesions. Dermoscopy also known as epiluminescence microscopy (ELM) has opened a new era in the evaluation of pigmented skin lesions especially in the early phase of cutaneous malignant melanoma. This non invasive procedure evaluates the skin in vivo relying on colors and microstructure of the epidermis, dermoepidermal junction and papillary dermis and can better suggest a malignancy or benign pigmented lesions. However, dermoscopy should be reserved for experienced clinicians.



SPOROTRICHOID ATOPIC PRURIGO. A COMMON CONDITION WITH AN UNUSUAL CLINICAL PRESENTATION

Prof. Roberto Arenas – Mexico
Usually we observe this clinical pattern with another subcutaneous mycosis or parasitic diseases as chromoblastomycosis, mycetoma or leishmaniasis. This case presented by dermatologist from Paraguay show as the wide variety of dermatological conditions with this clinical aspect.



PITYRIASIS ROSEA IN A 12 MONTHS OLD INFANT

Prof. Sundaramoorthy Srinivasan (India)
The topic presented by Prof. Piotr Brzezinski about "Pityriasis Rosea in a 12 months old infant" is an eye opener for all dermatologists, particularly paediatric dermatologists, not to forget Pityriasis rosea (PR). Many cases of PR without herald patch in paediatric age group are also reported in the literature.
I very much appreciate Prof. Piotr Brzezinski for updating our knowledge.



CUTANEOUS LARVA MIGRANS: REPORT OF THREE CASES WITH RESPONSE TO ALBENDAZOLE

Prof. Anaparthy Usharani (India)
1. Diagnosis of cutaneous larva migrans in Romania is really very rare. Congratulations to dermatologists for thinking about rare possibilities.
2. Source is from dogs and cats.
3. Names of the causative parasites should in the introduction.



RECENT CHANGES IN PEER-REVIEWED DERMATOLOGY JOURNALS

Dr. Rania Mounir Abdel Hay (Egypt)
Great article, many thanks for the authors who provided us with such great summary about the newly added journals and the already present ones.
These informations are so important for every dermatologist and reader who is interested in dermatology


THE CONGENITAL MELANOCYTIC NEVUS GIANT ON THE BACK

Dr. Roni Leonardo Teixeira (Brazil)
The congenital melanocytic nevus giant on the back, is an uncommon entity, however, early diagnosis, may imply a specific approach, surgical, often bringing the aesthetic benef it, andpsychosocial and minimize the possible malignancy of lesão. O this report, we have shown an extensive lesion, resolution of difficult aesthetic and psychological implications already an important, but what is more important that aesthetics is the follow up of this patient, there is seen, the risk of malignancy, so conservative treatment is of paramount importance, noting that the psychological question should be part of this monitoring.
