Group of skin diseases characterized by Scaly patches OR Slightly elevated papules and/or plaques Resemblance to psoriasis BUT includes several inflammatory cutaneous diseases unrelated in pathogenesis, histopathology, & tx response

47 Pemphigoid vs Pemphigus
Separate autoimmune diseases Both have sub types Both cause burn-like blisters Both very rare; can’t be cured PemphigoiD = Deep PemphiguS = Superficial Pemphigoid more common, less dangerous Tends to affect older people, usually 60+

48 Pemphigoid (12.9) Gk pemphix, blister Autoantibodies –

49 Pemphigus (L10) Group of disorders caused by auto-antibodies against some part of epidermis Including Oral mucosa Lead to disruption of intercellular junctions and blisters Ruptured bullae covered with scabs Tx: Immunosuppressive agents Prognosis is variable Many patients - higher than normal mortality rate

50 Pemphigus Risk Factors
Possible triggers Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen Drugs derived from penicillamine Herpes simplex virus Exposure to sunlight Long-term stress

51 Pilonodal Cyst/Sinus Latin - pilus (hair); nidus (nest) nest
Abnormal pocket in skin, usu. contains hair, skin debris & other abnormal tissue Almost always located near tailbone at top of buttocks cleft (small pit) Affect men more often; most commonly in young adults When becomes infected (abscess) causes pains, inflammation & usu. drainage of fluids

52 Pilonidal Cyst (L05) Risk Factors
Obesity, Inactive lifestyle Occupation or sports requiring prolonged sitting Excess body hair; Stiff or coarse hair Poor hygiene; Excess sweating When chronically infected pilonidal cyst isn't treated properly Increased risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma.

53 Pilonidal Sinus Hair may protrude from tract below skin’s surface that connects infected pilonidal cyst to opening on skin's surface More than one sinus tract may form Tx: I&D, currettage May be left open to heal MedlinePlus

Facial skin redness, where blushing occurs Insidious onset Mistaken for sunburn or acnes Becomes more noticeable /does not go away Dryness, pimples (pustular) Small blood vessels dilate Knobby bumps on nose, looks swollen Usu. Male patients

61 Rosacea (L71) Unknown etiology Lighter complexions – higher risk
May be inherited Lighter complexions – higher risk Not infectious/contagious Triggers vary from person to person Sunlight, hard exercise, extreme heat/cold, stress, spicy foods, hot drinks, alcohol, hot/cold weather, wind Tx: topical antibiotics, Finacea, laser surgery, sunscreens

62 Scalded Skin Syndrome (L00)
AKA - Ritter disease; Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSS) Infection - skin becomes damaged & sheds certain strains of Staphylococcus Toxin causes skin damage Blisters as if skin were scalded Most commonly in infants & children under 5 Tx: IV antibiotics and fluids

65 Burn Severity

66 Ulcers L, ulcus, a sore Circumscribed, craterlike lesion of he skin or mucous membrane Resulting from necrosis accompanying some inflammatory, infectious, or malignant processes Produced by sloughing of necrotic inflammatory tissue

67 Ulcers, Non-Pressure (L97)
Arterial ulcers Venous stasis ulcers Diabetic ulcers Neurotrophic ulcers NOT pressure ulcers

68 Arterial ulcers Complete or partial arterial blockage
Causes tissue necrosis and/or ulceration of extremity AKA Ischemic ulcer Large/small vessel; toes, ankles, fingers Risk Factors Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) Diabetes mellitus Advanced Age Tx: Surgical or Medical to increase circulation

69 S&S of Arterial Ulcer No pulse in area of extremity
Painful ulceration Cool or Cold skin Small, punctate ulcers; usually well defined Delayed capillary return time Briefly push on end of toe and release Normal color should return to toe in <3 seconds Atrophic appearing skin (shiny, thin, dry) Loss of digital & pedal hair Frequently on dorsal foot; occur anywhere

70 Venous stasis ulcers AKA Varicose Ulcers Venous Stasis Location
Cessation or impairment of venous flow AKA phlebostasis, venostasis Location Below knee – usu. Inner part of leg, just above ankle. Can be uni/bilateral Tx: Bed rest, elevation, & pressure bandages Antibiotics if needed for infection

71 Venous stasis ulcers (I83)
Common in patients w/Hx of leg swelling Varicose veins Hx of blood clots in superficial OR deep leg veins Affect 500, ,000 people in US yearly Account for 80 to 90 % of all leg ulcers

72 Diabetic ulcers (E08-E11) Most common foot injuries leading to lower extremity amputation Risk of LE amputation times higher in diabetics Early detection/appropriate treatment of diabetic ulcers may prevent up to 85 % of amputations Ulcers almost always form in patients with neuropathy Typically painless

73 Neurotrophic ulcers Occur primarily in Diabetics – see Diabetic ulcer
% of Diabetics - mild to severe forms of nervous system damage Can affect anyone w/ impaired sensation in feet Predominantly sensory neuropathy, Sensory-motor neuropathy, or Autonomic neuropathy Essential cryoglobulinemic vasculitis

74 Ulcers, Pressure (L 89) Localized injury to skin and/or underlying tissue Usually over bony prominence Result of pressure, or Pressure in combination w/shear and/or friction 6 stages NPUAP, 2007 Tx: Decrease pressure, friction and shear

75 Ulcers, Pressure AKA Bed Sore Decubitus ulcer Plaster ulcer
Pressure area Pressure sore Slough [sluf] Layer/mass of dead tissue separated from surrounding living tissue Eschar - hard crust or scab

76 Pressure Ulcer Stages Suspected Deep Tissue Injury Stage I
Purple or maroon localized area of discolored intact skin or blood-filled blister Due to damage of underlying soft tissue from pressure and/or shear Stage I Intact skin w/ non-blanchable redness of localized area Usu. Over bony prominence Darkly pigmented skin may not visibly blanch Color may differ from surrounding area

77 Pressure Ulcer Stages Stage II Stage III
Partial-thickness loss of dermis Shallow open ulcer w/ red pink wound bed, w/o slough May also present as an intact or open/ruptured serum-filled blister Stage III Full-thickness tissue loss SQ fat may be visible but bone, tendon or muscle are NOT exposed Slough may be present but does not obscure depth of tissue loss May include undermining and tunneling

78 Pressure Ulcer Stages Stage IV Unstageable
Full thickness tissue loss w/ exposed bone, tendon or muscle Slough or eschar may be present on some parts of wound bed Often includes undermining & tunneling Unstageable Full thickness tissue loss in which base of ulcer is covered by slough (yellow, tan, gray, green or brown) and/or eschar (tan, brown or black) in wound bed


80 Risk Factors for Pressure Ulcers
Age Reduced skin cell turnover, drier skin, reduction of collagen & elastin, & reduced vascularity at dermal/epidermal junction cause Skin less resistant to shear forces Increased surface area (potential fluid loss increase) Increased traumatic injury risk (e.g. skin tears) Decreased homeostasis Reduction of barrier function

81 RF for Pressure Ulcers Thin Body Nutrition & Hydration
More prone to develop pressure ulcers over bony prominences Nutrition & Hydration hypoalbuminemia, weight loss, cachexias, dehydration, and malnutrition commonly reported risk factors predisposing persons to pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers can generate stress response, which further adds to nutritional needs Lower dietary protein intake

82 RF for Pressure Ulcers Inability to feed oneself
Particular Medical Conditions Diabetes Malnutrition Altered mental status Spinal cord injury Orthopedic injury Depression Vascular disease Anaerobic waste products believed to accumulate due to pressure-induced occlusion of lymphatic vessels & contribute to tissue necrosis

83 PU Assessment Tools Braden Scale Norton Scale
Most researched, validated, & nationally recognized tool Comprehensive May not have same predictive value & accuracy in LTC Not readily used in outpatient clinic setting View tool at Norton Scale Short, straightforward, easy to complete Does NOT address nutrition View tool at

84 Unavoidable Pressure Ulcers
CMS definition in LTC “An unavoidable pressure ulcer occurs when facility staff evaluated resident’s clinical condition and pressure ulcer risk factors, defined and implemented interventions consistent with resident needs, goals, and recognized standards of practice, monitored and evaluated impact of interventions, and revised approaches as appropriate.”

85 Urticaria L, urtica, nettle
AKA – Hives Severe itching, then redness, then wheal Localized, various sizes Can include GI tract – abdominal colic Pharynx – can cause asphyxiation Deep tissues = angioedema – more serious Usu. Short duration, can become chronic

88 Skin Injuries in ICD-10-CM
Exfoliation Desquamation External Constriction Foreign Body Frostbite Incision Laceration Wound Abrasion Excoriation Avulsion Wound, Open Bite (nonvenomous) Superficial Open Blister (nonthermal) Burn Contusion Corrosion

89 Abrasion L: abradere, to scrape off
Rubbing away of skin surface by friction against rough surface, usu. Not deeper than epidermis, can bleed Mild abrasion (Graze) does NOT scar Deep abrasion may scar AKA – Scrape, Scratch, Excoriation Types Rope burn, friction burn, road rash, rug burn

90 Avulsion of Skin L, avulsio, a pulling away
Avulsion injury - removal of all layers of skin Chunk of tissue removed from body Includes all 3 layers of skin at minimum More than simple lacerations; less than amputations Etiology: Animal bites, industrial equipment, or MVAs Skin flap or Degloving Higher Risk of Infection

91 Bite (Non-venomous) Wound or puncture made by living organism
Superficial = Skin Open = Communicates directly with atmosphere Pets, Humans, Insects, Snakes, etc. Can be heavily contaminated

92 Blister (Non-thermal)
Friction (New Shoes) Abrasion Blister Electricity Chemicals Radiation from sun Cold Pinched skin (blood blister)

93 Burn (T20-T25) Electrical heating appliances Electricity Flame
Friction Hot air and hot gases Hot objects Leading cause of injury in US Lightning Radiation Scalds Chemical Burn (Corrosion) NOT Sunburn

94 Burns 85%–90% caused by heat
10%–15% frostbite, chemical, & electrical damage million burns each year in U.S 60,000 to 80,000 burn victims hospitalized 5,000 people die 35,000 to 50,000 people - temporary or permanent disability 2ndary to burns

95 Degrees of Burns Newer terminology Older Terminology
Superficial partial thickness; epidermis and upper part of dermis injured Deep partial thickness; epidermis & large upper portion of dermis injured Full thickness; all layers destroyed Older Terminology 1st degree; outer layers of epidermis injured, erythema, but no blistering 2nd degree; epidermis into dermis but basal layer remains, blistering 3rd degree; all epidermis & dermis destroyed; only white eschar remains 4th degree; muscle, nerve and bone damaged

96 Degrees of Burns 4th degree burns extend to tissue
5th degree extends to bone 6th degree burns are through bone Old classification system


98 Rule of Nines for Burn Extent
Total Body Surface Area (BSA) (Adults) Age Infants, children, & elderly survival Total Body Surface Area greater area of involvement ~ prognosis Depth of Burn— More Total BSA ~ full thickness, prognosis Other Injuries - Prognosis as concurrent injuries increase

99 Burn Treatment Determined by Degree and Extent of Burns
Table of Treatment Modalities by Burn Degree Rehabilitation of Burn Injuries

100 Contusion L, contundere, to bruise AKA Bruise
Injury that does not disrupt integrity of skin Caused by blow to body Characterized by swelling, discoloration, & pain

101 Corrosion (T20-T25) L, corrodere, to gnaw away
Tissue damage due to exposure to strong alkali or acid Main types of irritant and/or corrosive Acids, bases, oxidizers, solvents, reducing agents and alkylants Types of chemical weapons Vesicants or Urticants

102 External Constriction
Classified as superficial injury Ex: Hair tourniquet syndrome AKA hair strangulation External constriction of finger, toe, or external genitalia by hair OR thread, ring, rubber band, other object that can go around a body part Relatively common in infants Can be emergency situation Object NOT removed; infection or amputation

103 Foreign Body Any object or substance found in organ or tissue in which it does NOT belong under normal circumstances Superficial Open Wound w/FB

104 Foreign Body Accidental/unintentional Iatrogenic Intentional
From abrasions & open wounds in various accidents or GSWs, May elicit FB-type granuloma formationr Intentional Introduced in context of sexual deviancy Anorectum or vagina - vibrators, bottles, light bulbs, eggs, etc. Iatrogenic Sutures, sponges, instruments left during surgery Metals & plastics replacing/enhancing failing/non-functioning body parts

105 Frostbite Superficial RF: IF blood vessels NOT damaged
Damage to skin caused by extreme cold Red, painful, Blisters, Gangrene Hands, feet, nose, & ears most common areas RF: Beta-blockers Peripheral vascular disease Smoke, Diabetes Raynaud phenomenon IF blood vessels NOT damaged Complete Recovery Possible

106 Incision Neat, Clean cut Surgery Sharp instrument, such as knife

107 Wound Laceration Puncture wound W/Without FB Dull, Blunt instrument
Jagged, irregular wound Some tearing, breaking of tissue Puncture wound Sharp, pointed object pierces skin Can be deep; look insignificant Anaerobic infection risk W/Without FB

108 Lacerations From shallow cuts to deep gashes penetrating thru muscle to internal organs/bone Superficial laceration involves only skin Deeper laceration may penetrate veins or arteries Blood vessel may require repair Causes - include accidents at home & work, motor vehicle crashes, & violence

109 Open Wound vs Superficial
Open wounds Animal bites, avulsions, cuts, lacerations, puncture wounds, traumatic amputations Superficial injuries Animal bites that do NOT break all skin layers Abrasions or contusions Skin tears (Elderly, etc.)

110 Gunshot wounds Skin Damage = external, surface wounds caused by a bullet Usually, entrance wound smaller/tidier than exit site Amount of injury at entrance/exit (if present) sites related to Caliber of bullet Angle at which bullet traverses tissues Distance from gun Type of bullet

114 Other Skin Cancers Other non-melanoma skin cancers include
Merkel cell carcinoma Kaposi sarcoma Cutaneous (skin) lymphoma Skin adnexal tumors Various types of sarcomas

115 Basal Cell Carcinoma About 80% of skin cancers
Sun-exposed areas, especially head & neck Slow growing, seldom spread BUT IF left untxed; can invade & metastasize Can recur at same place Increases chance of getting BCC elsewhere Up to 50% of people will get new BCC w/in 5 years

116 Breast Cancer 2 main types Ductal carcinoma Lobular carcinoma
Begins in tubes (ducts) that move milk from breast to nipple Most breast cancers Lobular carcinoma Begins in lobules that produce milk Rarely, can begin in other breast areas

117 Breast Cancer Invasive Noninvasive
Spread from milk duct or lobule to other breast tissues Noninvasive NOT yet invaded other breast tissue “In situ“ Women - 1 in 8 will be DX w/breast cancer Men - <1% of all cancers in men < 1% of all diagnosed breast cancers

118 Breast Ca Risk Factors Age and gender Family Hx of breast cancer
50 + Women times more likely to get than men Family Hx of breast cancer Close relative had breast, uterine, ovarian, or colon cancer % of women w/ breast cancer have family hx Genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes Menstrual cycle Early periods (before age 12) Menopause late (after age 55)

119 Breast Ca Risk Factors Alcohol use DES – Childbirth HRT – Obesity –
1 - 2 glasses + daily Childbirth NO children or after age 30 Being pregnant 2+ times reduces risk Pregnancy at early age reduces risk Dense Breast tissue Being White DES – Increased risk of breast cancer after age 40 HRT – Estrogen for several years Obesity – Link is controversial Radiation Tx Child or young adult Treat ca of chest area

120 Breast Cancer Tx Six types of standard treatment
Surgery Sentinel lymph node biopsy followed by surgery Adjuvant Tx Radiation therapy Chemotherapy Hormone therapy Targeted therapy Various combinations based on Pt and Stage

121 Breast Cancer Surgery Breast-conserving surgery
Remove cancer but not breast Lumpectomy: Surgery to remove a tumor (lump) & small amount of normal surrounding tissue Partial mastectomy: Remove part of breast w/cancer & some normal tissue Lining over chest muscles below cancer may be removed AKA segmental mastectomy Lymph Node Dissection (separate incision)

122 Breast Ca Surgery Total (Simple) Mastectomy
All breast tissues Modified Radical Mastectomy Whole breast, many of lymph nodes, lining over chest muscles; sometimes, part of chest wall muscles Breast Reconstruction At same time OR later

123 Radiation for Breast Ca
External radiation therapy Machine outside body sends radiation to cancer Internal radiation therapy Radioactive substance sealed in needles, seeds, wires, or catheters Placed directly into or near cancer

124 Chemotx for Breast Cancer
Systemic chemotherapy Chemotherapy taken by mouth or injected into vein or muscle Drugs enter bloodstream, & can reach cancer cells throughout body Regional chemotherapy Chemotherapy placed directly into CSF, organ, body cavity (such as abdomen) Drugs mainly affect cancer cells in those areas

125 Hormone Tx for Breast Ca
Hormone therapy Removes hormones OR blocks action Stops cancer cells from growing Some hormones can cause certain Ca When tests show cancer cells have hormone receptors Drugs, surgery, or radiation tx used to reduce production of hormones or block them from working

126 Targeted Tx for Breast Ca

127 Cutaneous (skin) lymphoma
Cancers of lymphocytes (white blood cells) Primarily involving skin Classification is based on lymphocyte type B-lymphocytes (B-cell) T-lymphocytes (T-cell) (CTCL) Most common Red, scaly patches or thickened plaques of skin Often mimic eczema or chronic dermatitis More common in men; after age 50

128 CTCL Most common type of Skin Lymphoma Treatment Two most common types
Red, scaly patches or thickened plaques of skin Often mimics eczema or chronic dermatitis More common in men; after age 50 Two most common types Mycosis fungoides & Sezary syndrome Treatment Topical Corticosteroids, Topical Chemo, Retinoids Systemic IV Steroids IV Retinoids IV/ Oral Chemo Light Therapy Immunotherapy Radiation Therapy

129 Melanoma Less than 5% of skin cancer cases
BUT causes large majority of skin ca deaths About 76,250 new melanomas dx 44,250 men & 32,000 women Incidence rates for melanoma rising for 30+ yrs 9,180 are expected to die of melanoma 6,060 men & 3,120 women 2004 to Death rate in whites Dropped those < 50 Stable in women Rising in men > 50

130 Melanoma Lifetime risk Risk increase with age 2% (1 in 50) for whites
0.1% (1 in 1,000) for blacks 0.5% (1 in 200) for Hispanics Risk increase with age One of more common cas in young adults

131 Melanoma Risk Factors Ultraviolet (UV) light exposure
Sun and Tanning beds Dysplastic nevi Congenital melanocytic nevi Fair skin, freckling, & light hair Personal Hx of melanoma Immune suppression Age Gender (Male) Xeroderma pigmentosum

132 S&S of Melanoma ABCDE rule
Asymmetry One half of mole or birthmark does not match other half Border Edges irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred Color NOT same all over & may include shades of brown/black, sometimes patches of pink, red, white, or blue. Diameter Spot >6 mms across– size of pencil eraser, BUT melanomas can be smaller Evolution Any changes in skin lesions, new skin lesions, or growths that look different from moles

133 S&S of Melanoma Other warning signs Sore doesn’t heal
Pigment spreads from border of spot to surrounding skin Redness or new swelling beyond border Change in sensation itchiness, tenderness, or pain Change in surface of a mole scaliness, oozing, bleeding, or bump/nodule appears

134 Melanoma Staging The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) TNM system T ~ Tumor 0-4 a, b N ~ Node 0-3 a, b, c M ~ Metastasis Tx: Based on Stage Surgery Chemotherapy Immunotherapy Radiation therapy

135 Melanoma Survival Rates
Stage IA 5-year ~ 97% 10-year ~ 95% Stage IB 5-year ~ 92% 10-year ~ 86% Stage IIA 5-year ~ 81% 10-year ~ 67% Stage IIB 5-year ~ 70% 10-year ~ 57% Stage IIC 5-year ~ 53% 10-year ~ 40% Stage IIIA 5-year ~ 78% 10-year ~ 68% Stage IIIB 5-year ~ 59% 10-year ~ 43% Stage IIIC 5-year ~ 40% 10-year ~ 24% Stage IV 5-year ~ 15%-20% 10-year ~ 10%-15%

136 Merkel Cell Ca Rare skin ca, but incidence increasing world-wide
Metastasizes quickly Merkel cells at base of epidermis Nodule flesh-colored OR bluish-red, shiny, painless Usu. on face, head, neck; also on limbs or trunk Risk Factors Age, sun exposure, weak immune system, other skin ca, light skin 80% of 10 Merkel cell cas are thought to be related to MCV (Merkel Cell Polyomavirus) AKA Neuroendocrine carcinoma of skin

137 Merkel Cell Ca Metastasis Prognosis Diagnosis Tx
Liver, Bones, Lungs, Brain Prognosis 33% fatality rate Diagnosis PE, Bx, Sentinel Node Bx, x-rays, CT, PET, octreotide scan Tx Surgery (Mohs), Radiation, Chemo

138 Squamous Cell Carcinoma
About 20% of skin cas are SCC Sun-exposed areas of body Face, ears, neck, lips, & backs of hands Scars or skin ulcers elsewhere Sometimes begin in actinic keratoses Genital area skin

139 Squamous Cell Ca More aggressive than BCC
More likely to invade fatty tissues just under skin More likely to spread to lymph nodes and/or metastasize Squamous cell carcinoma in situ AKA Bowen disease Still w/in the epidermis

140 2ndary Skin Cancers Cancer cells can grow in skin
NOT skin cancer, melanoma, or cutaneous T cell lymphoma Secondary cancer may start to grow On/ near operation scar where primary cancer was removed In other parts of body Secondary skin cancer looks like a pink/red raised lump These nodules can be treated
