Social Support and Childhood Cancer Survivors: A Systematic Review (2006-2022).Research has indicated that social support may play a protective role in the face of stress and help children and adolescents cope with the demands and challenges they face on a daily basis during their cancer journey. However, social support tends to reduce over time as survivors overcome their illness despite its ongoing importance even years after treatment has finished. The current review aimed to systematically examine existing evidence on social support in child and adolescent cancer survivors.

Lymphomatoid papulosis with DUSP22-IRF4 rearrangement: A case report and literature review.Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) with DUSP22-IRF4 rearrangement is a rare, recently described variant of LyP histopathologically characterized by a biphasic growth pattern, with epidermotropic small-to-medium-sized atypical T-cells and dermal large and transformed T-cells diffusely expressing CD30. LyP with DUSP22-IRF4 rearrangement can mimic other cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorders, particularly primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (PCALCL) or transformed mycosis fungoides (MF). Unlike PCALCL or transformed MF, LyP with DUSP22-IRF4 rearrangement shows an indolent clinical behavior, with frequent spontaneous regression of untreated lesions. Thus, it is important to recognize this rare variant of LyP to avoid misclassification, which may potentially lead to unnecessarily aggressive patient management. To our knowledge, only 13 cases of LyP with DUSP22-IRF4 rearrangement have been reported to date in the English literature. Herein, we describe an additional case of LyP with DUSP22-IRF4 rearrangement in a 63-year-old man and provide a comprehensive literature review with regards to the clinical, histopathologic, and molecular features of this novel entity.

Concordance of reflectance confocal microscopy and gene expression profiling for melanocytic lesions with uncertain malignant potential: A case series.For a small yet significant proportion of melanocytic lesions, histopathologic analysis may be unable to definitively evaluate malignant potential. These cases may signify a specific need for newer ancillary diagnostic technologies, including in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) and gene expression profiling (GEP), both of which are highly sensitive in the diagnosis of melanoma. We report four cases of clinically suspicious melanocytic lesions that lacked definitive malignant features on histopathology and that were aided by use of RCM and GEP. Three of the four cases showed concordance between RCM and GEP in the diagnosis of melanoma. In one case, RCM was suggestive of melanoma; on the other hand, GEP and histopathology supported a final diagnosis of compound Spitz nevus. These cases support the role of RCM as a novel, non-invasive diagnostic tool to aid in the diagnosis of clinically suspicious melanocytic lesions with uncertain malignant potential, although RCM may have relatively lower accuracy for some atypical spitzoid lesions.
