    Slide 1:Skin associated systemic disease in elderly

    Monsawan miniphan M.D. 3/02/2005

    Slide 2:Scope of diseases

    Skin associated common systemic disease Diabetes Hyperlipidemia Endocrine disease Others

    Slide 3:Malignancy of skin Bacal cell carcinoma Squamous cell carcinoma Malignant melanoma

    Slide 4:Skin and aging

    Two basic theories of aging Programmatic theory Inherent genetic program Stochastic theory Cumulative environmental damage

    Slide 5:Skin aging

    Intrinsic aging Universal Inevitable change Attribute to the passage of time alone Photoaging Superimpose on intrinsic aging Attribute to the chronic sun exposure

    Slide 6:Histologic features of aging skin

    Epidermis Flatted dermo-epidermal junction Variable thickness Variable cell size and shape Occasional nuclear atypia Fewer melanocyte Fewer Langerhans cell

    Slide 7:Dermis Atrophy Fewer fibroblast Fewer mast cells Fewer blood vessels Abnormal nerve ending

    Slide 8:Appendage Depigmented hair Loss of hair Fewer glands Abnormal nail plates

    Histology of skin Histology of aging skin

    Slide 11:Functions of skin decline with age

    Cell replacement Thermoregulation Barrier function Sweatproduction Chemical clearance Sebumproduction Sensory perception Vit production Mechanical protection DNA repair Wound healing Immune responsesive

    Slide 12:Common skin disease in elderly

    Benign neoplasia Seborrheic keratosis : focal epidermal homeostasis loss leading to increase endothelin1

    Slide 13:Variants of seborrhoeic keratoses include Solar lentigos: flat brown marks in sun exposed areas Stucco keratoses: numerous small dry grey stuck-on lesions usually found on lower legs and feet Dermatosis papulosa nigra: numerous brown warty papules on face and neck of dark-skinned individuals

    Solar lentigene Stucco keratoses

    Slide 16:Treatment Removed : wish, uncertainty of the correct diagnosis. Methods used to remove seborrhoeic keratoses include: Cryotherapy. (liquid nitrogen) Curettage & cautery. Laser surgery Shave biopsy (shaving off with a scalpel)

    Slide 17:Malignant neoplasia Squamous cell carcinoma Basal cell carcinoma Malignant melanoma UV induce DNA damage Decrease DNA damage repair capacity

    Slide 18:Basal cell carcinoma

    the most common type of cancer in humans Affect adults, more common in elderly Sun exposure Grow slowly over months or years

    Slide 19:Types of basal cell carcinoma Nodular BCC Superficial BCC Morpgoeic BCC

    Slide 20:Nodular BCC Small translucent growth, rolled edges May be pigmented Ofte smaall blood vessels on surface, bleeding spontaneous


    Slide 22:Superficial BCC Multiple lesions Upper trunks or shoulders Slow growing patches, shiny pink, slightly scaly, bleeding easy


    Slide 24:Morphoeic BCC Skin-color, waxy, thicken scar Most difficult to diagnosis Prone to recurrent


    Slide 26:Treatment depends on its type, size and location, the number to be treated Excision. The lesion is cut out and the skin stitched up. This is the most appropriate treatment for nodular, infiltrative and morphoeic BCCs. Very large lesions may require a flap or graft to repair the defect after excision

    Slide 27:Squamous cell carcinoma

    Common type of skin cancer Type of squamous cell carcinoma In situ SCC Invasive SCC

    Slide 28:In situ SCC One or more flat red scaly patches up to several centimetres wide, often found in large numbers on the lower legs. These patches are also known as Bowen's disease Malignant cell confine in epidermis

    Slide 29:Causes of in situ SCC Sun exposure Immunosuppression HPV Arsenic ingestion Ionizing radiation


    Slide 31:Invasive SCC Develop in solar keratosis Solar or actinic keratoses are common small scaly lesions arising on the face, ears and hands of white skinned people who have spent many years outdoors Thickened or tender keratosis may be developing into invasive SCC. SCCs are often crusty and may bleed easily On the lips, SCC is more common in smokers

    Slide 32:Develop in thermal burn scars and longstanding leg ulcers In genital areas, SCC are usually related to infection with papillomavirus (genital warts) or skin disease such as lichen sclerosus or lichen planus vulvar cancer Not usually a threat to life as secondary spread (metastasis) is uncommon SCC on the lip or ear appear to be the sites most likely to metastasise, so ulcers or lumps in these areas should be taken particularly seriously


    Slide 35:Treatment Excision : the most common treatment of invasive SCC Cryotherapy Radiation

    Slide 36:Malignant melanoma

    serious skin cancer which is curable if detected early Growth from melanocyte in epidermis or mucous membrane Common in 50-70 yr

    Slide 37:Causes of melanoma Sun exposure particularly during childhood Serious sunburn, especially when young - however, melanoma sometimes occurs on areas of the body not normally exposed to the sun Family history of melanoma Fair skin that burns easily - melanoma is common in people with Northern European ancestry, and is not common among dark-skinned people A large number of abnormal moles (called atypical naevi). These moles are usually larger than 6mm, with an irregular shape and multicolours

    Slide 38:The ABCDs of melanoma A : asymmetry B : border irregularity C : colour variation D : diameter > 6 mm

    Superficial melanoma Nodular melanoma

    Slide 41:Treatment Surgical removal Sentinel node biopsy

    Slide 42:Papulosquamous disorders

    Psoriasis : change in patient environment leading to koebnerization systemic medication Atypical presentation : flexural psoriasis Drugs aggravated : b-blocker, NSAIDs, ACEi Trigger factors : urinary incontinence, hearing aids, braces

    Flexural psoriasis

    Slide 44:Xerosis

    Disturbance of epidermal maturation Decrease water content in outer layers of stratum corneum Dry , rough, skin


    Slide 46:Pruritus

    Penetration of irritants through the damage stratum corneum Alter sensory threshold Metabolic disorder Endocrine disorder Adversr drug reaction Parasitic infestation : scabies

    Slide 47:Infection

    Compromised local cutaneous health predispose to growth of infective organism Age-associated decreased immune response Underlying systemic disorder associated with decreased immune response


    Slide 50:Metabolic and endocrine disorder DM Renal failure Thyroid disease Hepatic disease Lymphoma, leukemia, PV

    Slide 51:Skin problems associated with diabetes mellitus

    Necrobiosis lipoidica Rare, insulin dependent DM One or more tender yellowish brown patches develop slowly on the lower legs over several months Round, oval or an irregular shape The centre of the patch becomes shiny, pale, thinned Prominent blood vessels (telangiectasia) Often painless

    Slide 54:Treatment

    Tropical steroid, usually under a plastic occlusive dressing Intralesional steroid injections or steroid tablet Aspirin and dipyridamol combination Pentoxifylline tablets Oral cyclosporin Photochemotherapy (PUVA)

    Slide 55:Diabetic dermopathy Their cause is unknown Round brown or purple slightly thinned patches seen on the shins of diabetic patients Similar lesions are sometimes seen in non-diabetics Treatment is not necessary or useful

    Slide 57:Hyperlipidemia

    Xanthomata 4 forms : tendinous subcutaneous nodule found in fascia, ligament and extensor tendon of hand, knee and elbow Planar : yellow, soft, macule or plaque found on the upper eyelids Tuberous : yellow to reddish nodule at extensor surface of elbows, knees and knuckles Eruptive : sudden, multiple reddish yellow papule extensor of extremities, buttock
