Importance Cancer and other noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are now widely recognized as a threat to global development. The latest United Nations high-level meeting on NCDs reaffirmed this observation and also highlighted the slow progress in meeting the 2011 Political Declaration on the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases and the third Sustainable Development Goal. Lack of situational analyses, priority setting, and budgeting have been identified as major obstacles in achieving ...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence and incidence of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) over time in Ontario, Canada. METHODS: We performed a population-based study of Ontario health administrative data, using validated case definitions for psoriasis and PsA. We computed the crude and age- and sex-standardized cumulative prevalence and incidence of psoriasis from 2000 to 2015. RESULTS: Among the 10,774,802 individuals ages ≥20 years residing in Ontario in 2015, we identified 273,238 patie...

Background The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) is on the rise in many parts of the world. However, there is limited knowledge on the epidemiology of CMM in Canada. Objective To conduct a comprehensive population-based study of CMM in Canada. Methods We examined patient clinical and pathologic characteristics as well as the incidence and mortality trends of CMM in Canada using 3 independent population-based registries. Results In total, 72,565 Canadian patients were given CMM diag...

Summary Background Global development goals increasingly rely on country-specific estimates for benchmarking a nation's progress. To meet this need, the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2016 estimated global, regional, national, and, for selected locations, subnational cause-specific mortality beginning in the year 1980. Here we report an update to that study, making use of newly available data and improved methods. GBD 2017 provides a comprehensive assessment of...

Summary Background Population estimates underpin demographic and epidemiological research and are used to track progress on numerous international indicators of health and development. To date, internationally available estimates of population and fertility, although useful, have not been produced with transparent and replicable methods and do not use standardised estimates of mortality. We present single-calendar year and single-year of age estimates of fertility and population by sex with stan...

Importance Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Current estimates on the burden of cancer are needed for cancer control planning. Objective To estimate mortality, incidence, years lived with disability (YLDs), years of life lost (YLLs), and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) for 32 cancers in 195 countries and territories from 1990 to 2015. Evidence Review Cancer mortality was estimated using vital registration system data, cancer registry incidence data (transformed to mor...

Background: The depth of invasion by basal cell carcinoma (BCC) subtypes varies. Objective: To investigate BCC invasion depth variation by subtype and anatomic site. Method: A prospective consecutive case series of excised BCC from 2009 to 2014 in a single Australian clinic. Results: Descending mean depths for a total of 4,565 BCC cases by subtype were as follows: nodulocystic, 1.9 mm (n = 84, 95% CI: 1.70–2.03, P = 0.66); nodular, 1.6 mm (n = 947, 95% CI: 1.53–1.63, P < 0.0001); aggressive, 1.5...

Importance Incidence rates of nonmelanoma and melanoma skin cancers are increasing rapidly in the United States likely because of increased UV light exposure. Sunless tanning is a safe alternative to achieve tanned skin that might help reduce skin cancer incidence by deterring risky behaviors. However, limited data exist on the characteristics and associated skin cancer risk behaviors of sunless tanners in the United States. Objective To assess the demographic characteristics and skin cancer ris...

Acne (syn: acne vulgaris) remains the commonest inflammatory dermatosis treated worldwide as estimated by global skin disease prevalence studies. Latest reports suggest the prevalence may be increasing in adolescents and adults, particularly adult females. The concept of burden of skin disease is multidimensional and can be difficult to quantify in light of different healthcare systems across the globe. In acne, the resulting burden may vary according to the patient demographic, access to treatm...

Common properties of dermatological diseases are mostly lesions with abnormal pattern and skin color (usually redness). Therefore, dermatology is one of the most appropriate areas in medicine for automated diagnosis from images using pattern recognition techniques to provide accurate, objective, early diagnosis and interventions. Also, automated techniques provide diagnosis without depending on location and time. In addition, the number of patients in dermatology departments and costs of dermato...
