Surgical treatment for aggressive giant keratoacanthoma of the face

The Journal of Dermatologic Surgery and Oncology
W A PaganiD Lorusso


A case of aggressive giant keratoacanthoma on the right temple region is described. Histopathologic examination was not definitive for keratoacanthoma, so that clinical considerations were helpful for diagnosis. The neoplasm was treated successfully with surgical excision and immediate repair with skin graft, in spite of one narrow peripheral area of residual disease on the wound surface after resection.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
