Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol. 2020 Oct 27;: Authors: Sarkar R, Podder I, Jagadeesan S Abstract Rosacea is a relatively common inflammatory dermatosis in persons with fair skin. It is uncommonly reported in people with skin of color (darker skin tone; Fitzpatrick skin types IV, V or VI). Apart from reduced incidence, underreporting due to decreased awareness might also be a probable explanation. Rosacea commonly presents with telangiectasias and persistent facial erythema on the sun-exposed parts, which can be distressing to the patient and affect the quality of life. The diagnosis is made clinically, in the absence of any confirmatory investigation. Several treatment modalities have been employed to date with varying results. Light-based therapies should be used cautiously in the colored skin to avoid distressing pigmentation. This article focuses on the pathogenesis, clinical features, treatment recommendations and other aspects of this uncommon disorder along with a review of the literature.

Laryngorhinootologie. 2020 Nov;99(11):772-778 Authors: Huseynov J, Mozet C Abstract Rhinophyma is a benign disease involving the skin of the nose, which is characterized by skin thickening and hypertrophy of the sebaceous glands and connective tissue. It occurs predominantly by Caucasians in their fifth to seventh life decades and is 12-30 times more likely to affect males. The etiology and pathogenesis of Rhinophyma remains unclear, however it is generally stated to be the final stage of rosacea. A causative relationship between rhinophyma and alcohol consumption has not yet been proven. This review highlights the treatment options of rhinophyma. Surgery is gold standard for management of advanced rhinophyma. Each technique has pros and cons, but using surgical instruments with monopolar energy as loop and ball electrode seem to combine several goals best - first of all simultaneous removal and hemostasis followed by nasal contour refinement. Due to possible coincidence of skin cancer such as a basal- or squamous cell carcinoma, histopathological examination of all removed tissue is recommended.
