Dermatomal Granulomatous Dermatitis and Vasculitis Following Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus [Case Report]

Martinez, Michael; Kim, Randie; Zampella, John
Cutaneous granulomatous dermatoses are uncommon sequelae of herpes zoster (HZ) infection that have been documented in the literature, with granulomatous vasculitis described in rare cases. Here, we report a patient with HZ ophthalmicus who developed edematous plaques with central scarring in a V1 dermatomal distribution with histopathological changes of a granulomatous dermatitis including features of granulomatous vasculitis. J Drugs Dermatol. 2022;21(10):1127-1128. oi:10.36849/JDD.6749.

Consideration of underlying immunodeficiency in refractory or recalcitrant warts: A review of the literature

Zampella, J; Cohen, B
Although the exact mechanisms have yet to be elucidated, it is clear that cellular immunity plays a role in clearance of human papillomavirus (HPV) infections as it relates to the development of warts. Patients with extensive, recalcitrant, or treatment-refractory warts may have an underlying immune system impairment at the root of HPV susceptibility. Early recognition of genetic disorders associated with immunologic defects that allow for recalcitrant HPV infection may expedite appropriate treatment for patients. Early recognition is often pivotal in preventing subsequent morbidity and/or mortality that may arise from inborn errors of immunity, such as WHIM (Warts, Hypogammaglobulinemia, Infections, Myelokathexis) syndrome. Among these, cervical cancer is one of the most common malignancies associated with HPV, can be fatal if not treated early, and is seen more frequently in patients with underlying immune deficiencies. A review of diseases with susceptibility to HPV provides clues to understanding the pathophysiology of warts. We also present diagnostic guidance to facilitate the recognition of inborn errors of immunity in patients with extensive and/or recalcitrant HPV infections.

Dermatologists' Perceptions and Confidence in Cosmetic Care for Male Patients

Shah, Payal; Cartron, Alexander M; Roman, Jorge; Zampella, John
BACKGROUND:Despite a growing interest in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in men, the utilization of aesthetic treatments remains comparatively low, suggesting the presence of barriers to care. OBJECTIVE:To describe barriers to cosmetic intervention for male patients from the perspective of dermatologists. MATERIALS AND METHODS/METHODS:An anonymous, online survey was distributed through a listserv made available by the American Academy of Dermatology. RESULTS:Dermatologist respondents perceived a low utilization of cosmetic services in male patients (5%) and a lack of opportunity (72.3%) to provide such services. Respondents also perceived a lack of sufficient education/training (40.9%), experience (20.5%), and a lack of evidence in the field (20.5%) for dermatologists as potential barriers to cosmetic care for male patients. Presence of targeted messaging and in-office educational materials for male patients was found to be associated with increased utilization of cosmetic treatments by male patients (p = .012, p = .012, respectively). Dermatologists reported strong confidence in delivering various noninvasive cosmetic treatments to male patients. CONCLUSION/CONCLUSIONS:Despite dermatologists' reported confidence in performing cosmetic procedures in men, many perceive insufficient education/training and experience with this population which may create barriers to cosmetic care for male patients. Increasing educational materials and targeted messaging to male patients may decrease barriers for patients to receive desired cosmetic care.
